Transparency

In photoshop patterns can be created with transparency. If these are saved as 24 bit .png files they can be imported into Secodn Lfe for $10.

Here is the master .png file, sized to 512 x 512

Touch the rods to start them rotating, touch the rods to stop rotation.

integer running;
default
{
state_entry()
{
running=TRUE;
llTargetOmega(<0,0,1>,1,1);
}

touch_start(integer total_number)
{
if (running==TRUE)
{
running=FALSE;
llTargetOmega(<0,0,1>,1,0);

}
else
{
running=TRUE;
llTargetOmega(<0,0,1>,1,1);
}
}
}

Comments:

I should set a timer to start it rotating again after it has been stopped by being touched, perhaps after 5 minutes.

The rods are red for visibility.

There are 4 slots, two pairs at right angles.
