Free Sculpty Tool: PloppSL
PloppSL allows you to create intriguing Sculpted Prims for SecondLife™ easily. Both texture and model are created in one step. Simply paint the front and back side of your model and it will be converted to a Sculpted Prim by PloppSL.
You can create or use different textures for the front and backside of your model. Paint in your favored paint program, import the images into PloppSL by drag&drop and turn them into 3D models with one click
It is free to use, but we kindly ask for your support to help with further development.

Script generator for non-scripters
http://www.3greeneggs.com/autoscript/
Script generator for non-scripters
It attempts to translate the way non-programmers think about interactivity into a functioning script.
This has a long way to go, but I hope it might be a useful tool for some of you and your students. I would love your feedback - what should I add?
Does the vocabulary make sense? Do all of the scripts work, and work the way that you expect them to?
This site will help you create scripts for your Second Life objects. These scripts allow you to add interactive elements to your builds without knowing how to code. All of the script are released under a creative commons license, which means that you can use them freely!

Second Life Script Library
http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LSL_Library
Second Life Script Library
There are many scripts that have become buried in the Scripting Library forum, were lost with the death of the scripting forums, or sit idle in inventories that could be useful and should be more accessible.
Other scripters may be in the same situation. This wiki is a well-suited medium for a script library. Feel free to add your scripts to the script library by creating new pages for them and linking to those pages here.

Set up a radio that allows the user to switch channels
http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LlSetParcelMusicURL
Is it possible to set up a radio that allows the user to switch channels (and thus audio channels)?
Yes. You would use llSetParcelMusicURL() http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/LlSetParcelMusicURL). As long as the object owner is the same as the land owner, that function will change the audio stream url. For a quick solution, you could have a series of prims each with a different url that was triggered by a touch_start llSetParcelMusicURL

Twitterbox is an object which enables one to post to and receive updates from Twitter, when inside Second Life.
