AGEGATE

What it Does:

The Goal of AGEGATE is simple. It seeks to help keep underage avatars off NSFW sims and NSFW Avatars off SFW Sims.

SL has a serious issue with Ageplay that hurts the reputation of Child-Av Communities, NSFW Communities and the SL Communities as a whole, and creates uncomfortable and unsafe experiences for all of it’s users.
AGEGATE seeks to help restore all of these  communities reputations and provide safe spaces for everyone to have their fun, whether it be SFW or NSFW.

How it Works:

Agegate is a very simple (AND FREE) Full Perm system that relies on creators and sim owners to work together.

It includes full perm scripts for both creators of Child/NSFW items and for Sim Owners.

These scripts communicate to one another when an avatar arrives on sim.

When someone arrives on an Sim wearing an item with the ChildAttachment or NSFWAttachment Script inserted, that script chirps on a hidden channel.

If the [OS] AGEGATE : NSFW Sim Orb is rezed and it hears the ChildAttachment Script, it immediately ejects the avatar.
If the [OS] AGEGATE : SFW Sim Orb is rezed and it hears the NSFWAttachment Script, it immediately ejects the avatar.

So What do I do?

Child Creators:

If you create Child Bodies, Heads or other accessories for children, please consider inserting the ChildAttachment Script Code into your products.
It is full perm and free so that you can take it and work it into your own scripts. This avoids having to add another script to your items is much resource friendlier.
It also has the benifit of not letting people yank just the AGEGATE script out of their items if you’ve left them mod. They would have to break the product to get it out of there.

Just make sure that the only products you put the script in are CHILD ONLY. If a product can be resized or worn by an adult, you may get an annoyed customer who tried to wear a pastel to a NSFW Sim and got booted!
As a rule of thumb, if it’s rigged for a Child Body, or IS a child body/head, then it’s a good candidate for this script.

NSFW Creators:

If you create NSFW Items that absolutely should never appear on a SFW/Child Sim, please consider inserting the ChildAttachment Script Code into your products.
It is full perm and free so that you can take it and work it into your own scripts. This avoids having to add another script to your items is much resource friendlier.
It also has the benifit of not letting people yank just the AGEGATE script out of their items if you’ve left them mod. They would have to break the product to get it out of there.

Just make sure that the only products you put the script into are strictly NSFW and have NO other use.  If it might be appropriate to walk around with a product on a SFW sim in certain circumstances, it is not a good cannidate for this script.
Examples:

  • Implants can be considered NSFW, but can also easily be covered. If you’re savy, you may consider incorporating the script in such a way that it only triggers when they remove their top.
    Otherwise, don’t include this script.
  • Genitalia are never SFW and are good candidates for this script.
  • Bondage Gear, Spankers, Milkers and other fetish items may also be good candidates for this script
  • Adult Bodies, Underwear and Stockings are not good uses of this script.

Child and NSFW Sims

Rez either the [OS] AGEGATE : NSFW Sim Orb or [OS] AGEGATE : SFW Sim Orb as needed.  (Deed it to the land). It’ll guard your entire parcel.
If you have a FULL SIM, peek inside the script and change the integer wholeRegion = 0; to integer wholeRegion = 1;

Security Orb Makers, Other Scripters

Please. Steal my work and put it in your creations.  The more sims and products using this, the better it will work.   Just keep the API the same and let everyone know it’s “AGEGATE Enabled” so everything can work together! 🙂

FAQ

Wait.. it’s FREE? WHY?

Because who is going to pay me for this?! Do you SEE how simple the scripting is?! xD

Seriously though, some things only work when enough people use them. I want everyone to use this. It’s good for SL, which is good for me. So it’s Free. That’s how I got Omega Going. Unlike Omega, this doesn’t require any maintenance on my part, so it’ll STAY free.  I’d require a group membership, but frankly my groups are so stuffed, I can’t even talk in them half the time.

And FULL PERM?

No one wants to add more scripts to products then they have to. This script is < 10 lines long.  The whole thing will work better if people are simply adding my code into their scripts.

This isn’t going to get everyone..
You’re absolutely right. This will never remove the need for moderation.  But, it will help and it’ll restore the reputations of the communities, sims and creators who DO enable it. And maybe eventually someday, SL will see we are serious about solving this issue and will make their own solution that’s even better. Wouldn’t be the first time they did that.

<So and so> isn’t using this yet!
So tell them! PREACH THE GOSPEL OF AGEGATE!

I make stuff, is there a good spot to test my AGEGATE Scripts?
Yes, I have 3 little plots here: 
http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Deva%20Loka/16/230/64

The Two platforms are 2 plots, 1 with a NSFW orb running, one with a SFW Orb Running. (The 3rd is a no orb zone that allows rezing on a 10min autoreturn)
