It's a Milk Carton

Yeah, it's a drink carton. It has the triangular folded top part of a cardboard milk carton, and it has "Strawberry Milk. 100% whole milk. 10 fluid oz" written on it in front. Not a tampon, lol.


$0.002 per 1K tokens (about 750 words) is the price for the GPT-3.5-turbo API.
Note that although the free version of ChatGPT is also powered by GPT-3.5 (the model), GPT-3.5 isn't ChatGPT (the application).

If you want it to return short conversational responses, you have to pre-prompt it that way e.g.: "You are role-playing as a clerk for the Moon Bunny store in Second Life, giving voice to a bunny avatar with a funny milk carton in his mouth. Now reply with a single sentence, like someone chatting on WhatsApp. Let's begin." (the user won't see this pre-prompting).
Here I simulated that pre-prompting with BunnyGPT (I also asked the tampon question, LOL):
It's not perfect, but I think you can see the difference.

Also it restarts from zero with each input, so, besides the pre-prompt and the user's reply, you also have to send the whole chat as input (within the limits of the context window), if you want a coherent chat (as OpenAI does with ChatGPT). Else it's just a new instance every time you write.

Of course it doesn't have eyes, it doesn't have the SL viewer output as input, it doesn't know it is generating text output for a bot avatar in SL (as the sign behind the avatar says, "he doesn't realize he's in Second Life"), unless you prompt it that way. It's like being inside an empty room, with no window, just a text-only client, while people sends you text from all over the world and you have no clue or references of the context, unless provided.

Anyway, it's fun, I love the idea!


It's definitely a milk carton!


Or add chatGPT to you own prim with this open source script.


Moon Brite

The commenters are correct, that it's milk the Bunny's drinking. I said a juice box, but it's actually strawberry milk! Thanks for mentioning BunnyGPT.


Pretty cool to see another AI Chatbot inside that game.

I made another type of chatbot with Hyperlabs, https://www.christwodesigns.com/strix-ai-companion called Strix.

It's a companion bot that uses our Neural Intelligence to answer people in SL.

Would love to see some more functions to add, like a rule-base bot function to your bot.

I’m surprised that you did not try to teach that bunny the language of love.

I know, it failed with that bot a decade ago.

Seriously, AI will transform how NPCs work in games, including those built in SL.
