The EasyBuild HUD
The Purpose of the EasyBuild HUD is to enable anyone, even those with no building experience whatsoever, to be able to quickly create useful buildings in Second Life.
It can be used to construct impressive looking homes, meeting places, dance venues, shopping malls, lecture rooms, theatres, etc. These are the principle uses for buildings in Second Life.
Taking over a year to develop, this HUD contains hundreds of different components and textures. These can be mixed and matched in a variety of ways, simply by clicking on buttons and palettes. In this way, it becomes a four dimensional building application.
The number of different combinations of components and textures is mind numbingly huge, ensuring that each creation can be virtually unique.
Every component and texture can be individually rezzed or deleted at the click of a button. Whole structures can be deleted and quickly replaced with a new design. With this HUD you can have a home and quickly transform it into a dance venue for a party. You can rapidly set up a seated meeting area or a grand hall for presentations, lectures or promotions. You can set up your own shopping mall or market square. Balconies provide an ideal environment for making machinimas.
