OnP Texas 2 Step Mutli Couples

SOFTWARE UPGRADE: We have recently upgraded the software in our popular Texas Two Step dance in order to make it even more stable with newer SL new browser and server software releases for rotation. We have noticed that rotating items for some reason are less stable with the new SL software releases, so we added safeties and checks. We also modified more of our software in addition to make it less susceptible to lags on a sim, although we do say that perhaps nothing in software can totally fix lag, but we tried to at least improve that situation. We also upgraded the physical dance and also software to make the dance ball height adjustable within its own menu - or can even make it disappear. So therefore in this new version you can adjust the height multiple levels up to 6 meters high. Therefore only one version - but one that you can copy and also adjust. If you decide that you still prefer the old sales product, do not worry. The entire old product offering is included in this package and is called "older version". Just rez that item to ground and open it to get the original product as well. If you have an earlier version and can show us via product or other means that you did buy it from us, we would be glad to give you this upgrade with no added charge.

This is one of our latest and most complex form of line dance - one for couples, 8 of them, or 16 dancers, based on the Texas Two Step. We combined multiple dance animations based on not only the Texas 2 Step, but also some of its variations for turns and loops and more with very complex custom scripting that allows several sync options. All of that combines with a rotating circle of dance balls to create an interesting effect of Western Dance. We like the end result ourselves - a lot - and hope you will also.

Similar to a line dance, but for couples, the rotating dance circle keeps the dancers in position and a reasonable distance from each other that is somewhat lifelike. In so doing it does provide for 8 dance couples, or 16 dancers total in a fairly small area of a little over 10 meters by 10 meters. The result is easy for users to use, where they just click a pink or blue ball and their partner clicks the couple ball of the other color next to them. There is slight delay of an unsync-ed Texas two step, until the next master control sync command hits - which will happen in 25 seconds or less. Then the two dancers remained synced with a new sync pulse every 25 seconds or less. The Users also are allowed to use "/1 sync" to synchronize just themselves. The software verifies that it will only work for the sync balls the user is connected with as a safety.
The dance ball in the center is mostly ornamental as far as the users are concerned, and they need not or cannot use it. However, the main center dance ball in the air is there for the owner. If the owner left clicks it, they will get a menu. That menu has many options including the choice of two dance types "Couples" where the two dancers in a couple just sync to themselves, or "Ctrl ALL" where all dancers of the 16 are synchronized together and will do the same dance routines. The owner as stated above can also via the menu adjust the height of the dance ball.

Other owner options include 2 different sync commands, a reset command, stop and go to control rotation (should be normally in "go" position for realism), and Talk On and Talk Off. These last options likely would be "talk Off" - but if turned on, the software will IM the dancers as to when the dances change, what the dancers are, and that a sync just happened. The owner also has options of the dance mechanism itself for different heights depending on the ceiling height of their SL location.
The dance routines themselves are several animations which include not only the simple Texas 2 Step - or quick quick, slow slow, but also some loops and some turns and more. We also included some hip movement to add realism, and yes, some cuteness for the dancers.

We do believe that this can be a fun dance, and especially if you have a number of couples. The "Couples" choice for dance again just syncs each couple individually, but it is also geared to setup different dance sequences for different dances, such that couples dancing near one another will likely be in different parts of the dance - in order to add realism as what one would see on a real dance floor - some going straight, some turning, some looping.

We love this creation, and hope you will also.

The moving circle simulates well a western two step.

Good concept, poor animations.

The concept is good, but the animations are really stiff-looking.
