Caledon Library Hud and How it Works

I have a dear talented friend who i have written about before...the beautiful Miss Viv Trafalgar one half of the grid-famous New Babbage Aether Salon (Miss Serafina Puchkina is her partner in culture for that venture) Viv...creator of clothing, transporters, buildings, furniture, scripted items, and more has donated her precious time and talents for the good of all! .....all who loves Libraries! She has created the Caledon Library Hud! As a Gift! That sly JJ Drinkwater can make most anyone do just about ANYthing for the Library! More on that later....Ahem!

Dear reader, you may ask...what is a hud? from the SL Wiki it is a:
"Heads up display (abbreviated HUD) is a control panel for an AO or other devices that appears (only) on the screen of the avatar wearing them"

This HUD is like a directory of Teleporters.... here...please to show you with the willing help of my dear English Sheepdog Sir Shaggy who is trying to get in on the action....silly pup!
(pray click upon the photo to see full size)

Wearing the HUD it becomes a semi-transparent icon at the bottom of your screen. Meanwhile, silly Sir Shaggy is trying to get me to look at him....i am feigning disinterest....

One would click upon that icon and get a blue menu ....Sir Shaggy begs for my attention and i am still giving him the playful cold shoulder.

The Blue Menu appears and you can see ALL the Libraries in the Caledon Library System! Clicking on one...of course the Steampunk button and you'll get a Teleporting Map. Sir Shaggy takes a break and just sits. Good boy!

The Teleporting Map comes up and you can see the destination highlighted in RED and you can click either Teleport or if you're just searching for the SLURL you can click on Copy Location to Clipboard. Click Teleport and Voila! You're there....now, if you're in a Hubbed area of Caledon then you'll have a bit of a walk to get to the location....hint: follow the Red Beam from the sky.

Thank you SO much Viv for creating this for ALL! This HUD will be available (tomorrow) in all my libraries..look for a picture of a library and click upon it to get yours!

If you would like a created Hud for your businesses, town, or group you can Hire Miss Trafalgar for a mere $4500L ...contact her for details!

or any of my staff
Vitolo Rossini is the only certified D&D Dogs representative in world.
*The VKC Proven Trainers at Dogland have gone OVER and beyond 
certification requirements. They have all passed exams, and been
certified by VKC, and then... they passed my own tough test to be 
allowed to serve you at Dogland. Only 3 People out of 10 have 
passed my personal requirements, and these are the "cream of the 
crop". This is who you can expect 24/7 service from
*Free Pet Memorial- I heard your call for a Pet Memorial that was without
cost to use, so I added one to Dogland Park. Attached to VKC Dog Park 
at Rhoda, the Memorial Wall is located near the duck pond close 
to the Dogland Little Theater. There is plenty of room for anyone to 
memorialize their friends that have passed. Send me a full perm picture 
of your pet, and write a notecard about them- say what is in your heart. 
Your pet will appear on the wall the very same day, and will remain 
there for you and for others to visit, when at Dogland. This memorial
is for anyone who has lost their rl best friend.

Contact: Vitolo Rossini, "The Dogfather"-Park Owner/Trainer

Even with no clinic, Dogland Park improves. Without the restrictions and limits placed on Dogland by Enrico Genosse, the park has become more of what the VKC Dog Owners Open Chat Group wanted. There are always fully trained VKC and D&D dogs available for relocation at great low costs. We also now no longer must cater to the wishes of others, concerning telling truth about certain vendors products that are bad for our SL dogs. Dogland support team can now be perfectly honest with all about which products are best for your dogs.
I was concerned at first about losing the clinic, but you guys have shown that you prefer the park, open, and honest, and without VKC officials "calling the shots" about what you see at the park, and what you hear in group notices, or say in group chat!
Congrats to all!
