What Is It?
Have you ever sat and thought "wow that's a cool idea", and then wished you had all those ideas in one device instead of lots of other little ones stuck to your avatar? Well so did I. Initially, I created AVpack for myself, as a way to get around Second Life more easily, protect myself from threats, see who is around me and interact with people in a fun way. This is what AVPack is all about and more.
A modular, compact and constantly updated wearable gadget system, that allows you to benefit from the latest innovations and cool ideas from Space Bums as they become available.
After you've tried AVpack, we're sure you'll never want to take it off. You'll be blown away by the amount of features it has to offer.
What It's Not.
Some multi-gadgets pride themselves as being "triple A" multi-tools, purely because their main feature is the ability to blast other avatars out of a sim. If this is what you are looking for, then stay away from AVpack. AVpack is far deeper than a "look at how awesome I am. I just killed you" tool.
AVpacks' core strength is its interconnectedness between modules. Further, this is achieved without interfering with the overall function of the device or your normal avatar control. In short, AVpack is all about enhancing what you can do in your Second Life, not about enhancing your ego.

AVpack is the business end of the device and this is the gadget that you wear on your hip. It performs all the functions of the system. The AVHUD should be considered as an optional remote for the main AVpack. You must wear the AVpack device in order for the HUD to perform operations with it. You can take a look inside the AVpack device to see all the cool little tools it has inside. You can see that the object itself is very small. You can turn AVpack totally invisible too with the / command, so it does not spoil the look of your outfit.
AVpack should always be worn on the "left-peck" attachment spot.
Think of AVHUD as a "tv remote" for your AVpack. After wearing your AVHUD, you'll see many options and modules to choose from. Clicking the top left icon on AVHUD will show and hide the module options. From here, you can experiment by left clicking on the buttons.
AVpack has a lot more options in it than can possibly be contained within a HUD, so in order ot keep script counts down - only the most used modules are presented on AVHUD. To see all of what AVpack can do, explore its main menu and chat commands.

Disable any gestures that may conflict with your AVpack. If you have hundreds of gestures active in your inventory, you may see that you perform certain gestures while you try to operate the AVPack over chat. You will need to locate and deactivate any gestures that are causing you problems so you can fully enjoy the AVpack. Typing /m for the AVpack menu and seeing your avatar muscle flex is one example. All gestures can be located using the search string in the inventory. Simply right click the offending name and deactivate it.

The AVpack is a small computer device that clips to your left peck. This is the business end of the device and all its many capabilities. You can hide it, making it totally invisible too.
AVpack came to life in early Feb 2006. I wanted a gadget that would allow me to rez out the tools I needed to help me build and have fun with my friends. An "avatar gadget pack" I could quickly access, so I didn't have to search my inventory in order to find the things I liked to use the most. So I created "AVpack" - a multi-tool which allowed me to explore Second Life in the way I wanted, and to give my avatar "super abilities". I hope you enjoy it as much as I have loved working on it all these years.
