SL Flickr of the Day: Moos Makes the Metaverse His Canvas "Lost" isn't some mid-century masterpiece you forgot you once saw, it's a screenshot Second Life (at least it started that way): Moos Hultcrantz is the man who made the metaverse his canvas in this way, and the rest of his many SL photos (some more post-processed than others) is a perfect stream of moody eye candy for the weekend. Here's a stream featuring the late-lamented Venexia in SL: Continue reading "SL Flickr of the Day: Moos Makes the Metaverse His Canvas" Posted at 01:55 PM | Permalink | Comments (1) Would You Love to Be Above the Virtual Sea in a Chair Held Aloft by Balloons?

Discussing How to save Second Life textures to your hard drive in Linden Village ▓▒░ TORLEY ░▒▓ says: ... so you can upload them to Flickr! The following info is also in the official Second Life Knowledge Base. You can export any fully-permissive texture from Second Life and save it to your hard drive (or other storage medium). By fully-permissive, this means you must have ALL "Modify", "Copy", and "Resell/Give away" (transfer) rights for the texture. You can check this by right-clicking a texture in your inventory and selecting Properties. Gartner annonce une adoption des mondes virtuels dans 5 ou 10 ans Bon ceci dit, pour ne pas broyer du noir, ces mêmes prévisions donnaient, en 2007-2008 les mondes virtuels en pleine adoption vers 2010-2011. L’erreur n’est pas donc quelque chose de rare du coté de Gartner, qui sont d’ailleurs beaucoup crititqués. La réalité augmentée est, elle, en plein dans le haut de la vague. Et en consultant le PDF fourni par Gartner on découvre que cette techno sera adoptée de façon massive par les internautes dans 5-10 ans aussi mais auvec un usage plus “massif” (cf p13). Bon, étant donné que l’étude complète coûte la bagatelle de 2000$ je vous laisserai autant dans le vague que je le suis avec ses prédictions plus ou moins sérieuses… A vous de juger. Petite remarque tout de même, s’il est vrai que l’on parle de moins en moins de mondes virtuels, on parle de plus en plus de seriousgame ou “d’outil de médiation en 3D”.

Take a Sneak Peek at the Pathfinding Experiments B An ethereal wisp glides through a fantasy forest and then vanishes, only to reappear at your side a few seconds later. Dozens of beetles and rats creep across the floor of a decaying,decrepit building, scurrying away whenever you get near. A hideous, scaly beast chases you up hills and across regions, dodging anything that gets between it and dinner. A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace by John Perry Barlow Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us.

Pathfinding in Second Life From Second Life Wiki Overview At a high level, pathfinding provides tools and functions to enable smoother and smarter movement behavior for non-avatar entities in Second Life (for example, monsters in a game, rats in a haunted house, wisps in a fantasy forest). We refer to these entities as characters; in gaming terminology, they are sometimes called NPCs (non-player characters) or mobs (mobile objects). What Is the Metaverse?
