Hi! It’s me once again! Last time I talked about cramming all your stuff inside boxes to manage that bloat in your inventory caused by the many freebies from last month’s gift extravaganza. I mentioned the zdrop command in that blog post and provided a link to a Firestorm info page that talks about it.
Today, I’m going to present you with a quick and easy step by step guide on how to do it. I hope this helps and can be an easy reference guide to browse through while you try to deal with that messy inventory of yours.
- Create a folder with a unique name. There should not be another folder in your inventory with the same exact name. For example: abcdef. Select the items that you want to put in your box and drag them into this folder.
- Rez a prim on the ground and right click edit it to open up the edit window. Look near the bottom of this window and find the button that says copy keys. Click that and you’ve got the uuid to your prim box ready. Close the edit window.
- Now you are ready to drop those items in your folder into the box. Type the following command without the quotes or parenthesis in local chat in the exact order, “zdrop on (paste the keys that you copied here/prim uuid) (name of the source folder your items are in)” and hit enter. Before doing this, make sure that the edit window for the box is closed so you don’t lose any items in the process.
- You will see something like this on local chat while the process is going on. After the transfer is done and all your items are in the box, make sure to take the box back into your inventory for safekeeping.
I hope this helps you with your inventory management goals. This is just one of the many ways to organize and lower your inventory count. There are other ways out there to organize your inventory which I’ll talk about another time. The best thing about this process is that it’s simple, quick, easy, and most of all, free!
