Small Code Example

The following code, will launch the named object [K] Nova at the avatar owning the object using the low theta angle and with a velocity that is half of the current region FPS. The calibration of the speed to the region FPS is meant to avoid the projectile going through the target.

This script was tested and works on OpenSim version 0.7.4!
