New 'Sansar' Video Glimpses More Virtual Worlds Made on the Social VR Platform – Road to VR

Due to launch in Spring 2017, Sansar is a new take for the company on virtual worlds, this time built from the ground up with support for virtual reality. There’s no denying that Linden Lab did some things right with Second Life, a $500 million GDP in 2016 is a testament to that. But they also did some things wrong, even Linden Lab CEO Ebbe Altberg will admit. “Between the Creator and the Consumer, Second Life never really settled on which was our primary customer,” Altberg told Road to VR in an interview at the company’s San Francisco headquarters in January.

That realization is the basis of Sansar, which represents an entirely new take on virtual worlds for the company. That means that users will not ‘enter the world of Sansar‘ any more than they would ‘visit WordPress’ to find content online. NormalMap-Online.

Create a cool and unique avatar to represent you. How to hypergrid. In order to travel the hypergrid, you must first start your travels on a hypergrid-enabled grid.

How to hypergrid

You can create a free account on any of the following public grids: OSgrid (U.S.), Metropolis (Europe), FrancoGrid (France), GermanGrid (Germany). Or any other hypergrid-enabled grid — more are coming online daily. You can also start out on your own hypergrid-enabled standalone grid or any other hypergrid-enabled grid. We recommend starting out on OSgrid because it is the largest grid.

In addition, the most popular viewers for traveling the grids all have OSgrid as the default starting world. We recommend the Firestorm viewer, which is the most popular in both Second Life and OpenSim. Once you are logged into OSgrid, click on a hypergrid address of the region you’d like to visit in our directory. Directory of hypergrid destinations.

VWBPE: Creating Immersive Environments. As many of you will know the 2014 Virtual World Best Practices in Education conference was held from the 9th to the 12th of April and a very successful and well attended conference it was.

VWBPE: Creating Immersive Environments

A little harder for those outside the main time zone of PDT to get the full experience but nonetheless I managed to attend a number of excellent presentations. I also presented my own workshop on Creating Immersive Environments and, now that my MA Assessment tasks are completed for this semester, I thought I would share some of that presentation, as a set of ideas, images, videos and SLurls, for those who may not have been able to attend. Part of the challenge I set myself was to make use of some of the features and affordances of virtual worlds and move beyond a slideshow/lecture based presentation.
