MOST HANDY UTILITY SCRIPT: Advanced Color Picker by CommanderFoo
A Colorful UI button panel that enables players to change the color of objects in the world, like costumes, items, parts of the environment, or even 2D UI. A side menu lets players check boxes to assign different colors to sections of the same model.
Runner Up: Fluid Mannequin by estlogic
Because Core’s “guy” and “gal” avatars have different heights, shoulder widths etc, a costume that looks great on one player may look scrunched or stretched on another. Provide Fluid Mannequin with “guy” and “gal” versions of a costume and it will detect the player’s body type and attach the correct costume version.
Runner Up: Animation Script by PiousLachance
Animate your model by setting a series of small changes to the position of its parts, which this script will loop through in sequence.
