Christmas Gift Boxes in Second Life®

The scripted gift box with Christmas paper is finished!


Like the other two scripted Gift Boxes I have, you have a choice of 11 wrapping paper designs, 11 bow colors, and 11 floating text colors, so you can wrap the present to your taste!

You can also set it so that it will open only for a specific person, on a specific day (or later) and you can set one message that is displayed in the floating text above the box, and another that the box will "say" when it opens and gives the person you specified all the presents that you've stored in its Contents.

When the day comes, and they click the gift, and choose to open it, the top flies off, the ribbon falls to the side, and the box plays a sound, while particles come shooting out of it. (The default sound is chimes playing "We wish you a Merry Christmas", and the default particles are snowflakes, but you can use your own sound and particles, simply by removing the Defaults from the Object Contents, and putting yours in there.)

You don't have to give the box to the person in order for them to open it, so you can keep it and reuse it for the next gift, or you can give it to them after the celebration, when it won't interfere with role playing.

The important thing is that you can put it under the tree, have your loved one open it, and not have the scary moment when you set it for sale for L$0, and hope the person it's meant for buys it before a swooper shows up and steals it all!

With this box, gift giving is fun, and secure; and it will give both copy and non-copy items, as long as they are Transferable.

The box is Mod/No Copy/Transfer, so you can put your own paper on it, too, if you like; or tint the paper that's there, as well as using the scripts. And, of course, you can add things to the Contents, which you kind of have to be able to do.

You cannot resize it, though, or it will break the box. I'm planning to have a larger box, and a smaller one, available soon.

For sale now, L$100, Mod/Transfer/No Copy from Kick the Can and the Home and Garden Store in Livingtree.

See you there!
