What is Countdown?
Countdown is a dynamic component designed for virtual environments, allowing the setting of a time limit with an emphasis on urgency for a single object. By integrating the Countdown component with an object, the interaction with an avatar (trigger activation) initiates a prominent and urgent countdown timer displayed in the center of the screen. This feature distinguishes itself from similar components like Time Limit, which requires two target objects for a countdown, and Elapsed Time, focusing on count-up timers for two objects.
