2019 VID: PROMO: Construction tool. Dynamite Terrain Tool. Terraforming can be fun--and safe

Construction tool.   
Dynamite Terrain Tool.  
Terraforming can be fun--and safe  

A mesh prim that looks like a stick of dynamite. When you click on the prim or chat “boom” it explodes with particles and sound. Then it digs a hole in your terrain. Finally, it “falls” down into the bottom of the hole it just made. The safest way to play with explosives you are likely to find.

The hole is a shallow circular dent in the terrain with an optional crater lip. Explode the dynamite several times to dig a deeper hole. Or line up several and shout to get them all to go at once. This is how explosive professionals dig ditches! Or use it to put that crowning crater in your volcano.
This scripted object works on OpenSim 0.9 or 0.8, but it REQIRES Owner permissions, Estate Manager and Threat Level HIGH. Test for these with the Terrain Test Prim which you can buy here  or come to my world Fractalis and pick up a free copy of the Terrain Test Prim on the platform.
In chat type radius=nn to set the radius of the hole to any integer number. Type lip=off to disable the crater lip. You have to re-enable with lip=on before every explosion if you want the lip to grow higher than 1 meter. Type help at any time to get a list of commands and to find out the current radius and crater lip state.
