Permissions on Objects

Permissions on Objects

  • A brief description of the different levels of permissions (Click here for full details)
    • Modify – if this option is allowed (ticked) in the properties tab, then the next person can make changes to it or delete it. Modifying could be changing the colour/texture of an object or re-sizing it. If the object is ‘no modify’, no alterations or deletions are permitted. NB – object within another object can have different modify settings, i.e. if an object inside a ‘box’ has no modify, but the box has ‘modify’ on the permissions, then the size of the box can be altered, but not the object inside the box
    • Copy – if this option is allowed, then the object can be copied (without any number of limits). The details of the creater will remain on the object copied. NB – if there’s an object with ‘no copy’ inside another object with ‘copy’, the inside object must be removed to copy the outside object V-. (I call this the ‘Russian Doll’ effect 😉
    • Transfer – if the transfer is allowed, then the owner (the original creator) of the object can transfer, sell, give away his/her object. Once the object is transferred, the next owner updates the permissions for the object.
    • For SL Permission Listings, refer to the Archived Forum
  • Suggestions of when you might use different permissions:
    • on collaborative projects – where a team of people are responsible for different aspects/parts of the items created in SL. A bit like an assembly line for a car :-), where each part of an object is created by a specialist in that area, and then is passed onto the next person to develop the object further B-)
    • for testing the reliability of the object – once the permissions are set up, the best way to test them would be by trying out the options with your ALT (alternate avatar)
    • to transfer it ‘freely’ or for commercial purposes – when the object in question is ready to pass on, for either commercial purposes or giving it away for free 🙂
    • when creating an object for an organisation (where the copyright belongs to the organisation/company) – if the creator is associated with an organisation, the permission setting need to be in order, as only the original creator of an object can delete it V-.
    • to keep the copyright of the object created – see the blog on IP for more details
