Personal Light // Wishlist

I'd like to suggest that each avatar have a personal light. That this light
be editable by the SDK/bot for brightness/color/type and that the light can
be completely personal or visible by others and that a user/citizen has the
ability on their Browser to disable this feature due to hardware limitations
and/or a dislike of the feature. Secondly, that an addition to the ACTIVATE
command(or other appropriate command) be made which can trigger the light
on/off and other changes to variables of the light.

Example usage:
You come into a world of tunnels and caves as a spelunker, you are assigned
by a bot a light source of fx=fire color=orange brightness=1 radius=2, you
don't actually see a torch(unless part of the avatar), but the light follows
you around as you explore the caves, as you begin to cross a rickety rope
bridge a swift breeze causes your torch to vanquish, and in it's place an
eerie dark blue light takes it's place. Once reaching the opposite side of
the bridge you relight your torch, no longer in the winds grasp, and
continue your journey.

Great idea :)

As long as it's not available, you could use an invisible object
with "create light" and the assigned cit# in the comment, and one
global mode bot that makes sure that each of those object is always
above it's citizens head.

indeed, I've done something similar (but without the fancy bridges that make
you lose it) you can choose the color and then it follows you until you
leave or say orb vanish - It's in the tunnels in my world freaks, it should
be working .. sometimes it doesnt, and if you say the command multiple
times, it'll freeze up the lights, lol. (cheap preston, pretty easy to make)

In the same thinking, it would be great and it would allow even more
features, if we could assign a "create name" inside of a RWX (including
avatars of course).

This would bear the risk of duplicate names and would not
allow to use the same object two times with different names.

But having the "light" as part of the RWX, with source
vertex and direction ...
