Last Sunday I was motivated to find a fun little toy in my inventory. I distributed it to the Tugby Captains group. Look for "Free Ride". If you would like one sent to you, feel free to IM me in world. What does it do? Well, the instructions are below.
"To operate, simply rez the object on the ground near you. It will float just above your head. At this point your friend can right click on it and select Sit Here. They will take a seat on the disk floating above you head. As you walk and fly, they will follow you.
If you friend has a Free Ride disc, they can give a ride to another friend. With a bunch of people you could make a chain of floating friends!"
I acquired this object in December of 2005. The creator was bUTTONpUSHER Jones, who must have been a Beta member as his rezz date is 10/1/2002. Older than ME!!
We tried it out before Tugby and Allie took this great pic! I took people for a ride around the Tugby field pulling them with my Tugboat. We have six people taking a "free ride"!
We played four on a side and had good sim performance! Results below.
