Menu Driven Poseball Positioning
First off I know it is possible, and I know how to make a menu; the wiki has taught me that much. But I have never figured out how to make a script to jump from one poseball to another or to enter a poseball position from standing via menu; not to mention combined a menu and jumping poseballs.
Anyone got an idea of how its done? Example: as I am doing it. I have 5 poseballs each one doing a different pose in a different position/rotation and, instead of making people click on the poseball each time or stand up and click a new one each time (which can be annoying if camera angles are hard to get) it would be best, imo, to have a menu that they click anywhere on the 'overall object' (hub) and pick one of the five balls to pose on and clicking on the hub while posed will bring up the menu again to change poseball.
Any help would be appriciated as I try to work this code together on my own.
(And sorry if I'm asking to many questions so soon, I've built up a fair few projects that I need scripted and only just found this forum)

I would suggest getting an MLP(Multi-Love Pose) script somewhere inworld and modifying it to your needs. It initially has support for 2 poseballs, but I have seen some with 7 poseballs rezzed at once.

The MLP does exactly what you describe -- it will rezz one set of pose balls (or more than 2) and let you change the animation pose using a HUD interface.
To set it up, you will need to drop the animations into the MLP object (simple box or a flat mat) and then change various settings and menu notecards. It can take awhile to get everything working but it's a very nifty approach to any set of animations.

Hmm, dang. I'd wanted it to be available to multiple people at the same time. Poseballs just seem to bug out all the time when they're linked to objects, seems I have to sit and stand up multiple times just to get them to do the pose right.
