  • Opensim conference 2013. 3D sketching.

    3dsketch_001

    I am doing some 3D sketching on the dev grid to find out how to use the space we will have on the Opensim conference. http://conference.opensimulator.org/2013/

    I think after this there is a possibility that Opensim finally grow up to become something in it´s own right. I have already chatted with avatars that are professionally using Opensim for education and business.

    More to come..

  • Opensim conference 2015

    OSCC15 001

    Once again i attend the Opensim conference. Not as big as i used to be but i think i get something out of this one too.

     

    There are always new things to learn. Fun.

  • Do the trucking thing.

    kassel

    If the weather continues I am going to to get many transports done this weekend. EU truck simulator 2. I am driving all over Europa. Hauling cargo. It is a lot of fun.

    Cant help I just love simulators and this one is really good. I drove a truck many years ago and it feels right. The graphics make driving a pure pleasure. I am having some fun.

    As you can see the graphics is really good. It is a there feeling. Well spent a few Euros on Steam. It is 6.79 E during the holidays. And I just saw there are add ons.

  • Avalon town closing.

    So we are homeless again. For a while. Avalon town have been a great community and we have rented a place for a long time. There be a smaller Avalon in the future and we have to see if there is a place for Art space Magazine. The mag is still here and going thru some changes as usual. New web tech. I try to do some new exploring of Second life when the new computers are ready. See you then.

     
  • One of my fav designerd in SL

    I always liked Blaze. Found this one in my inventory. Simple and stylish. So i will look great for another day.

  • Exploring route 12 in my truck or when Second life works.

    Wanted to make a new try to drive around in SL with my truck and today everything was fine.

    route12_001

    My truck script worked great and even sim borders worked. Not much falling thru earth or spinning around in the sky. Did not have to re rezz at all. A few times a sim crossing reset the script but it was just to put it in gear again and drive on.

    route121

    My script have three gears and you move around in a updatable pace. You can steer around obstacles and keep on the right side of the road without any problems.

    And the weather was nice as always.

    I really enjoyed myself as I never have explored route 12 before. Some ugly builds but there are also some nice scenery. I think I try to build some more vehicles on this script. If you want to go fast it is not for you but then you probably just fly of the road anyway. This is for the explorer of fine SL roads.

  • Driving in Second life or scrap the physics engine.

    drivingsl

    I have made some experiments with connection a wheel and driving around in SL. My truck script works great for ordinary driving with the keyboard. Of course it lacks all feeling of driving a car or truck but it works and you can cross sim lines ok for the most of the time. But there is no way of connecting peripherals to the lsl scripts. I have tried many settings on the steering wheel none that actually work very well.

    I have been using Test drive Unlimited 2 for a while. A driving sim and MMO game where you meet other people on the roads. Nice driving, competitions and stuff. It is a lot of fun. Yes it is a game and everything is on your computer so the game updates very smooth but there is still a lot of other people driving and you meet them in there cars driving around the island of Ibiza. I wish I could do that in SL. I would pay for it. I did buy theTDU2 on Steam.

    The tech problems are to big of course I understand that. SL is old so what to do?

    Maybe it is time to take out the physics. What I it used for? It cant run anything and it is on the servers. Physics should of course be in the viewer. Then you can set simple or real depending on how powerful computer you have and it is not lagging the servers. Sim crossing would not be affected. It could be sold as extra add on for trains, planes and cars and make LL some extra bucks or let developers write their own. The actual code computing a plane is just a few lines. The rest is interfacing.

    I wonder how many developers are working on SL anymore. And if business are thinking up new ways to make money and make me able live in this world in the future?

    Nothing been done for years on a lot of issues. If you want new development you have to check Opensim. I do some testing there next.

  • Exploring There world

    There_cyberserenity_2013-12-05 16-34-40

    I have a account at There world but i never really explored it. http://www.there.com/

    It is a nice little world that was closed for some years but now is run again.At the time i never really did any exploring so i have started out travelling in my jeep all over the place again. Lot of places i have never seen.

    There_cyberserenity_2013-12-05 16-50-38

    The physics engine is great and that means you can really do stuff with vehicles. I love the look of the avatars.

    Maybe now when we have seen many virtual worlds There gets its chance again. It have a very clean look and runs on anything but the software have not been updated since Windows XP. Sorry to say. And I got the client running so and so on Linux too.  My hope is that it all goes in the public domain. This is a gem of software that deserves more. I would love to run a There world. The things you could do..

  • Telepics

    Right now

    Tele pics by Anna Lorentzson

    Exhibition starts 19/3 2011.

    Sometimes experimental photography just happen more or less by itself. I was playing around with a telescope trying to get a camera to work with it. When I found a old digital camera that had a small lens that could fit somehow in the telescope. The very small depth of field of the telescope combined with the ability to move the small lens around, made some strange photos.

    The dreamlike quality of the pictures fascinated me and as I was lugging the telescope around in the garden I found stranger and more abstract pictures. The telescope shows it´s pictures upside down and that made it easy to keep the feel of the photos.

    I could probably edit some photos in a paint software and get similar effects but if your a photographer you want it to be the real thing. Light thru lenses. So no editing in the computer I have only turned them around and trimmed them to find the best presentation. Many was good enough to show as they are.

    The camera is a HP 3.2 mpix the first digital camera I bought. Not really the high resolution you can work with today but now I am happy I did not throw it away. I think I will put it among my old analog camera collection sometimes I use them to shake up my creativity.

    I hope you enjoy my experiment and the exhibition.

  • Skii testing in Second life

    Testing new skii script in Second life. Happy jumping skiiers. The script is really a problem because of LSL scripting and the connection to the physics engine and the lack of imput possebililtes.

     

    But i think this could be the best i can do so now it is some more testing and then it is on to design.
