Fingerprint padlocks are the easy and safe locking method for the touchbound system. Once a fingerprint padlock has been imprinted with an avatar's unique fingerprint, only this person will be able unlock bondage equipments locked with the same fingerprint.
Fingerprint padlocks act both as locks and keys, they can be used safely without risking to lose the key.
Each fingerprint padlock come with a blank memory when unpacked, you can either rez it inworld or attach it on your avatar or your HUD attachment points. If the padlock is rezzed at this stage only it's owner can interact with it.
Each padlock add a little message to the object they are locking, like a label, or if something was engraved on it. This message can be easily customized. By default, fingerprint padlocks automatically add “Property of <your avatar name>”.
From this point any objects locked with this padlock will bear your custom description in their Touchbound context menu.
The padlocks have been entirely rewritten to perform better in high lag environment and have a lower memory footprint.
By default, when padlocks and keys are used as a HUD object, or worn on the avatar as an accessory, only the wearer can use them. But there is a special configuration notecard inside the padlocks/key objects that can be renamed to change this behavior:
In all cases if the padlock/key is rezzed on the ground (not worn) anyone in close range can use it regardless of the public setting.
Activated mode is represented by a glow, and an “activated” hover text when the object is used as a hud element (HUD elements cannot glow)
When a padlock/key is locked in activated mode, you can click multiple objects in sequence without having to click the padlock/key again between each use. This mode can be disabled by clicking the padlock/key a second time. It will also deactivate itself if attached/rezzed or after 30 minutes.
