setImage questions and comments

After experimenting with setImage, I have a few questions/comments:

  • It appears that the “item” only ever appears to your avatar’s front. Will there/could there be an offset option? This would allow us to draw objects on top of an avatar, or behind it.
  • It appears that the item that is picked up cannot have any animation to it. Obviously a big ask, but it would be nice if even just simple looping could be used to mimic the actions of the avatar.
  • I also noticed that itemString does not persist if a person refreshes. This could be troublesome if they are holding an important item for a game or puzzle. Guess we have to write some sort of handler for ‘playerExits’ to make them leave it behind first?

And there is more to come, I am sure. Thanks!
