So I went shopping the other day and realized that around half of my landmarks took me to places that were no longer any good. This frustrated me to no end, I mean, in this day and age I either belong to a group or spend tons of time tracking down a store’s or club’s or whatever’s newest location? I put my brain to it, enlisted a friend’s help to beta test, and Landmark 2.0 was born.
Essentially this system lets the proprietor of a location give out an object that is similar to an Landmark. When user’s rez the object (or wear it) it simply gives the end-user a hyperlink that can be clicked and followed to the location. The magic however comes when the proprietor needs to move. They simply re-rez the original ‘setting’ object included in the package, touch it, and all of the Landmark 2.0s they sent out are automatically updated to the new location. The entire process takes less than 1 minute and the end user will never need to hunt down the location again.
I wrote two versions, the one pictured above that lets a proprietor have up to 10 separate locations programmed and a cheaper version that allows a single location.
Update 10/19/2010: A friend of mine made this cool video, I hope you find it as useful as I find it as cool.
