Congratulation on setting up your Question & Answer Trap.


Let’s call the avatars you trap participants.  A participant walking toward your Question & Answer Trap will not see the invisible trap.  The participant will only see the hovertext question.  As the participant approaches to read the question, he will be trapped inside.  Your Question & Answer Trap will become solid and display gate bars.  This text is displayed onscreen:

“Uh oh.  You are in a trap.  To get out of this trap type the correct answer”

The participant will remain trapped inside until he types the correct answer into normal chat.  Once the correct answer is given, this text is will appear onscreen:

 “Correct answer.  You have 10 seconds to escape”

Afterwards your Question & Answer Trap will automatically reset, and will become invisible again, waiting to trap the next participant.


It is possible that a participant may not give the correct answer, give up, and quit SL.  Should this occur your Question & Answer Trap will be in the solid cage state.  And so, should you ever notice that your Question & Answer Trap is in this solid cage state, you will need to manually reset the script.


I cannot find Tools / Edit / etc…

These instructions are based on the official Second Life viewer.  Often productPM documentation refers to accessing an object’s Contents menu.  Right-Click the item > select Edit (or Build if that is currently appearing) > then select the Contents tab.
