What is the Time Limit?
The Time Limit component in virtual environments introduces a unique feature where users can set a “time limit” between two specific objects. This function is crucial for scenarios where timing is a key element of interaction. By equipping an object with the Time Limit component, a countdown timer activates when an avatar contacts object A (trigger activation) and stops upon contact with object B (trigger activation). This differs from similar components like Elapsed Time, which counts up, and Countdown, which involves a single object and emphasizes urgency.
