Free Second Life Script Collection

You don't want to pay for a Visitor Tracker, Chat logger, Power Point Presentation, a video screen, or whatever tool that makes your stay in Second Life more pleasurable?

Or you simply want to learn the Linden Scripting Language? With the free Second Life Script Collection you can have it all. You can make your own SL Welcome Mat, or take apart the scripts, see how they work and learn from it.

Over 150 free SL scripts have already been uploaded for fast retrieval at the NPC
Share your free scripts too and watch the collection grow.

Have fun,
