What does it mean - reset script


Recommended Posts

To reset the scripts in a thing, select it, then go to Build->Scripts->Reset Scripts. In Firestorm (and perhaps other third-party viewers", right click the think and select "Object->Reset Scripts".

Scripts can contain internal variables that persist across many operations, such as moving them, pulling them back into inventory and rezzing them again, etc. Sometimes, upon first running, these scripts obtain information from their environment (like the size or orientation of the door they're in) when they're rezzed. This is more efficient than constantly querying the object for information that rarely changes. But when the environment does change, the script's internal variables may become obsolete, and the script might malfunction. For this reason you must sometimes reset a script after doing something to the object containing it.
