Pondering the Possible in Virtuality

Posted by Ethos Erlanger on June 20, 2010

I am struggling in my First Virtual Life.  There are so many things that cannot be done there.  I have mentioned a few in this blog, and I may embark on a detailed study of  what is currently not possible.

At the risk of offending a respected blog that has gone silent, I am thinking of starting a counter blog about the things that are Not Possible in my First Virtual Life.

Once it is up and running, I urge you all to join me and add comments of the things you would love to see in your virtual life that are currently not possible.

Here are just a few for starters:

  • Slow Walk
  • Reduced Gravity on the Moon Simulation
  • Dance Cam
  • Scalable Mega Prims
  • Smooth Region Crossings
  • Interoperability between other Virtual Worlds

Enjoy your Virtual Life,

Ethos Erlanger

First Draft of Guggenheim Walls

Posted by Ethos Erlanger on June 10, 2010

First Draft of Walls for the Guggenehim

First Draft of Walls for the Guggenheim

This ring was relatively easy.  Each segment is 15 degrees of a full circle.  A total of 24 identical segments would make one entire ring.  It is flat and so the edge of one side is in line with the edge of the next segment.

Much more work will be needed to get the segment to rise to the left and flare outward just the right amount to simulate the Guggenheim walls.
