1) Setup Guide

Each Overhead Door has One set of Guide Rails and Six Door Panels: A through F.
There are 4 different Panel types: Solid, Window, Freight, Base.
HD Overhead Door Linkset
The primary way to control the HD Overhead Door is with the S2 Switches.
They also support Indicator Lights and a Receiver Box for Remote Controls.
HD Overhead Door Setup

The HD Overhead Door box that was delivered to you contains four pre-assembled sets:
  • - HD Overhead Door Commercial
  • - HD Overhead Door Freight
  • - HD Overhead Door Basic Setup
  • - HD Overhead Door Advanced Setup
It is recommended to start out with those sets and modify them to fit your needs.
Once you are familiar with how everything works you can explore further and assemble new Door Configurations.

1.1 Basic Setup

HD Overhead Doors can be linked together to create a Basic Setup.
All doors within the same linkset need to have unique Door-IDs.
You have to make sure that the root prim remains one of the Guide Rails.
The root prim is the prim that was selected last when linking a selection of prims together.
It has a yellow outline while all child prims have a blue outline.
The access to all doors will be automatically restricted to Owner and Group members only.
The group used is the one that the whole object is set to.
HD Overhead Door Basic Setup
The Receiver Box is used as an easy way to use remote controls to open or close the HD Overhead Doors.
Please note that you can not use Advanced Mode and the Receiver Box at the same time.
If you use the Advanced Setup then please use the Script API in order to enable the use of Remote Controls.

1.2 Advanced Setup

If linked to a building, the root prim of the building must contain the '*HD Access Control' Script.
The use of the control script allows for more advanced settings for both access and interaction.
A notecard is required to change the default settings. You can set a Script API channel, general access permissions and define a whitelist of avatars.
The following settings are possible:
    > sets the general access, can be OWNER, GROUP or ANYONE
  • AVATAR = Lares Carter
    > adds a single avatar to the whitelist, use multiple lines to add several avatars
    > avatars can be entered via username or legacy name, display names can not be used
    > avatars without last name can be entered with or without the default Resident last name
  • API = -4864231
    > sets the Script API Channel
  • RELAY = -5864231
    > sets the Relay API Channel
To setup your doors rez the assembled doors, adjust the Door-ID as needed and link them to your building.
Please make sure that each door within the linkset has a unique Door-ID.
You can also link switches and the garage indicator lights as needed.
Once done please copy the '*HD Access Control [Version-Number]' into the root prim of your linkset.
To use custom settings please also copy the 'Configuration Notecard' into the root prim of the linkset.
Open the notecard and make adjustments to the settings as needed.
HD Overhead Door Advanced Setup

2) Door-ID and Group-ID

2.1 Door-ID

Each HD Overhead Door is identified by its Door-ID. This can be any number between 1 and 100000.
If there is more than one door in a linkset then each door needs to have a unique Door-ID set.
Please make sure that each panel that belongs to the same HD Overhead Door has the same Door-ID set in its description.
Once all panels are properly setup you can use the Door Menu to easily change the Door-ID and all panels will update accordingly.
The guide rail prim has just the Door-ID set as description.
There are 6 panels for each HD Overhead Door. From top to bottom they have the suffix A to F.
The Panel Base always needs to be the bottom one.
You can put the other available panels in any order and arrangement you want.
If the top panel is a Panel Solid or a Panel Window and no Display# has been defined then the Door-ID will be displayed on the top left of it.
Only the first Three digits of the Door-ID can be displayed on the top panel.
You can set the Display Number to None if you do not wish to have any number visible.
Your set the Door-ID for your HD Overhead Door to 24 on the guide rails prim.
The first (top) panel has the description set to: 24A
The second one will be 24B. Then the next ones 24C, 24D, 24E and 24F.
The last panel of a door should always be a Panel Base which has the bottom liner and a different hinge and roller configuration.

2.2 Group-ID

Additional to the Door-ID you can also set a Group-ID for each HD Overhead Door.
This can be any number between 1 and 100000. Each HD Overhead Door can only belong to one group at the same time.
The Group-ID can be used to control more than one HD Overhead Door simultaneously.

3) Options

3.1 Auto-Close Time

You can setup an Auto-Close Time for your HD Overhead Door. The auto-close time is given in minutes.
Just add your desired amount of time to the description of the Guide Rail.
Your HD Overhead Door has the Door-ID 24 and you want to set the auto-close time to 10 minutes.
Then the description of the guide rail would be: 24, 10min

3.2 Speed Adjustment

You can modify the movement speed of your HD Overhead Door. The speed adjustment is given in percent.
Just add your desired amount of adjustment to the description of the Guide Rail.
Possible values are 10% up to 500%.
Your HD Overhead Door has the Door-ID 24 and you want to set the speed to twice as fast.
Then the description of the guide rail would be: 24, 200%

3.3 Sensor Light

The HD Overhead Door is equipped with a Sensor Light that acts as Safety Guide to detect possible obstructions.
It is mounted approximately one half meter above the ground.
If the light beam is blocked then any closing door will be immediately stopped and forced to open again to avoid any personal injury or property damage.
Additionally an open door will not close while the light beam is blocked and a buzzing sound will be emitted if a switch is activated.
The Sensor Light can be deactivated for maintenance and debugging purposes.
HD Emergency takes no responsibility and shall not be held liable for
any vehicles that might be launched into the air and catapulted off-grid due to disabling the Sensor Light.

3.4 Reset

You can select Reset to force the HD Overhead Door to Validate all linked child prims and update all settings.

4) Customization

The HD Overhead Door offers various customization options. It is also modify enabled.
You can use the popup menu to browse various features.
The following options are available:

4.1 Display#

This option allows you to show a number on the top door panel other than the Door-ID.
Any number between 1 and 999 can be entered. You can leave it blank to show no number.
If the number is the same as the Door-ID then it will switch back to the Door-ID mode.
That means it will automatically update whenever the Door-ID is changed.

4.2 Textures

Texture Front & Texture Back
You can enter the UUID of a compatible HD Overhead Texture.
Separate textures can be applied to front and back side of the panels.
The Doors come with a box of example textures which allow you to copy their UUIDs.
Full Templates in XCF and PSD File Format are available Online.
Texture Decal
The Panel Base has a decal surface. There are 8 different options included with the menu.
You can choose ‘Clear’ in order to hide the decal.
If you select ‘Custom’ you may enter the UUID for any 4:1 ratio texture.
The texture should have a fully transparent background and be uploaded as PNG file.

4.3 Colors

Color Front & Color Back
If you are using the default white textures then you can use the color menu to apply a color tint.
Color Decal
This will apply a color tint to the Panel Base decal surface.
Color #
This will apply a color tint to the door number that is displayed in the top left corner of the top door panel.
Aside of the default colors you can also enter a custom color code.
Various formats are accepted:

21 21 2121, 21, 21<21, 21, 21>

5) Validation Process

The HD Overhead Door relies on the link numbers of the door panels.
Every time the building is edited by linking or unlinking that order can possibly change.
Every time the linkset is modified the doors will be halted and the guide rail prim will switch to a red color.
The doors will automatically validate once a full minute has passed. The owner can also trigger a manual validation by clicking on the guide rails.
A validation is required after one of the following was changed:
- link order of the building
- local position or rotation
- size of the guide rails
- description of the guide rail
If a change in the setup fails to register properly you can simply unlink and relink one of the door panels.
An Indicator Light will only be recognized after a successful validation took place.

6) Resizing

The HD Overhead Door can be resized to almost any size. Please be aware that the Land Impact can increase if you make them larger than the default size.
Position the Guide Rail to the desired location then change the height and width as needed.
The depth of the guide rail will automatically adjust when the validation is complete.

7) S2 Garage Switches

The HD Overhead Doors are fully compatible with the S² Garage Switches Set.
The Buttons can be used to operate the HD Overhead Doors while standing within close proximity.
In order to setup your buttons:
- Set the description of the button to match the desired Door-ID.
- You can set a switch to a Door-ID by adding a G in front of the number. For example: G10 for Group-ID 10.
- You can set the description to -1 if you want the button to control all linked doors at the same time.
- Link the buttons prim to the same linkset as the door.
- Validate the linkset by clicking on the Guide Rail or wait for the auto-validation to kick in.
There are 5 styles available: Industrial, Default, Open-Only, Close-Only, Trigger
The buttons are labeled to indicate the function.
The three button versions have the following functions: Open, Close & Stop.
The single button version will only fulfill one of the functions.
Each button has a special label surface so you can easily show what it controls.
For the standard texture the horizontal scale has to be set to 0.50 and the vertical scale to 0.10.
The default labels have the following texture offsets:
VerticalHorizontal -0.25Horizontal +0.25
You can also use your own custom label texture.

8) S2 Garage Indicator Lights

You can link up to two S² Garage Indicator Lights per HD Overhead Door. Simply set the description of the Light to the correct Door-ID.
Please make sure that the name of the Light Prim still contains 'Garage Indicator' in it if you change it.
If the light is not registered correctly simply check that the description is correct and then unlink it and relink it.
The light will display a steady red while the door is closed. Once fully opened it will display a steady green.
While the door is moving it will flash red. If the door is stopped mid-travel it will display a steady red light.
You can easily adjust the colors of the indicator casing by applying a color tint.

9) Remote Controls

The HD Overhead Doors can be remotely controlled.
