Spring Break!!

Spring Break!!
Spring Break!!

 

Due to last week’s major problems with connectivity … this week (March 22 & 24) is SPRING BREAK!!  Wish me a happy 9th Anniversary of Teaching in SL on 27th of March … at least one class a week (mostly more) with a couple short breaks here and there – more than made up for by double and triple teaching other classes!

 

Adorably cute image is from the internet!

History of class:
The first class of this type that I know of was taught by Hempz Rebel in 2010 using the base script by Eloise Pasteur from the internet, and a pose ball which didn’t stop the ride when you got up.  It unfortunately couldn’t tell really when to stop and if you didn’t link it just right, the Elephant Rides were truly hilarious.   It took me two years to figure out what went wrong.  I first taught “Spring Duckies” on 05/15/12 and everyone managed to tame the rotational dragon!

This new class “Spring Froggies” adds a mesh head and different prims; plus the scripts have been changed from two… to a single script which now stop rocking when you stand up.  Script mods by Toady Nakamura  03/13/16
