  • Avatarfest build. The Lions.

     lion_001

    I am ready with my build for this years Avatarfest.

     

    This is wrote

    As a artist it is nice to do new things sometime. I have done many exhibitions with prims so this is new for me.
    I wanted to do a mesh project. With bones and and a lot of different 3D software. I am working on a bigger Opensim project and realized that mesh is probably the way forward. So this is a test to see if i could do a art project like this.

     


    The reason for the lions is that i am working with some lion heads in clay in my real life studio. Inspired by the lion heads in Galas mausoleum outside Barcelona. Loved them when i was there few years ago. So when you work with a shape it is nice to get it over to the Opensim world and try to explore it further.”

     

    It is still a few day to go before the fest. Hypergridding

  • Star trekking on Tangle grid.

    Visited Tangle grid. Kling Kingdom. 4 sim medeival sim with a lot of castles. Nice build and big. I go in my Star Trek uniform these days i am a explorer you know.

  • Friday party at the OSGrid

    opensimp The hypergrid amazes me once again. 24 people now on event plaza and it works. Pretty great.
  • Using Wordpress now and the blog lives on.

    Wrightplaza_001

    Visited Wright Plaza today on the Hypergrid.

    Happy about the new solution for the blog as I have had it for such a long time. The reason for moving is that I just do not think that Google should use my name in all their apps.

    It is not a anonymous thing. Cyber is totally connected to my real name anyway but in RL I am the fine artist Anna and Cyber is the CEO of my game company and also the explorer of virtual worlds and the net. There is a difference and I think that should be my choice.

    Yes you can use any name you want on Google+ but it was surprisingly difficult to change it to my avatar form. And I could suddenly not use Blogger with all functions. I was working for 2 days with it then gave it up.

     

    It is not a big deal I run a lot of websites so this is a good solution. Always wanted to use Wordpress again and I can see that security is beefed up these days.

    So welcome to my old blog.

    So welcome to my old blog.

  • i am leaving Google


    Yes i am leaving Google. I just do not like that they are using my real name.
    And as i see it i cant do much about it. So this blog will be gone, And my youtube and may mail and everything else.

    it is terrible that you cant control what should be shown.
    I have been writing a lot for myself and if anyone was looking in that was great.

    It will take some time as this account really is intergrated in my life. I have a android phone and a pad. And i have been using this for a long time.

    But i do not think it is ok to use my name and personal information on the web without my control.

    Yes i am loosing my facebook to.

    Maybe i will live my life out of the web. BUT i will keep all my Second life accounts and i will be on the hypergrid where i have control.

    See you inworld guys,
  • Clubs in SL

    I have been exploring the metaverse to find cool clubs and really nothing. Send me some info on your favourite to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

  • A mall i like.

    It is not often i find a mall build i like. They are often terrible. But this one got one of my best rules. It should be fun to walk around and explore.

    Egoism

    And someone been thinking about the stores to. Not just a lot of pictures stacked on top of each other.

    And there are also some nice places to sit and take a break.

    Taking a break and waiting for my espresso.

     

    I would like to see more malls like this one.

  • Transfer from Second life to Cloud party.

    nilsartsl_001

    This is Nilsart gallery in Second life. It is a nice build and I like it. Now I wanted to test if I could transfer it to Cloud party. First I moved it to my developer grid. It runs Opensim. No problem there. Still looks nice.

    nilsartwork

    Then I exported it with the Singularity viewer to a dae file and imported it in to Blender. Did a heavy reduction of faces and uploaded it to Cloud party. On the left it is in Cloud party. Here I stumbled on the finishing line as Cloud party did not let me place it. The mesh was still to big. But it is possible to do it.

    Next to solve is textures. I check that out later.

  • A fast hypergrid trip to Francogrid.

    francogrid

    First: Love the hypergrid and I did not lose my shoes this time. Why do you lose the shoes and not the hair? Metaverse riddle.

    Nice place and I just super like the fishing boats far in the distance. That is a kind of focusing at detail I like as a builder. It is a French grid but nobody tried to talk to me. Me and my French teacher long ago, agreed I probably will never learn it. Worth a trip.

  • Opensim conference: Impressions

    So the conference is over.After listening to cute stuff, tech stuff and mind blowing stuff. What to bring home?

    The conference itself? It is not the same to be there as it is listening to a stream. You can comment, wooot things and generally be there. The feeling is different and that’s a good thing. Virtual world actually works. At lest for me and as we heard for about 40% of the rest of the population.

    A side from the tech stuff we also have another thing in common. English. We can talk and listen to each other. English is not my first language so I do not care if I sometimes make a few mistakes. I can communicate. That’s the thing.

    pathfinder

    Listening to Pathfinder

    The tech stuff worked aside from some small glitches but who have been to a conference without tech problems. It is a part of the package, it is ok when people are nice about it and everybody been really nice.

    I wanted to listen to as much as I could. I heard about the business side, learning, tech, simulating cities and military. Some more philosophical talks on why we use the metaverse (yes I used that word). But I missed my special interest . Art. Maybe I have to do that one myself for another year.

    I liked that many talks was nice to Second life. There is really no competition. I think Second life and Opensim are different sides on the same coin. But Linden lab is a company and need a good business idea, As many Opensim grid owners, money is needed to run the worlds we visit. But I wonder if Linden lab and Second life will be around in 10 years. I think Opensim will. I visited Active worlds some time ago, First time I visited I used a modem and the internet was just starting up. It shows that the Open source idea could help software to survive and evolve. There may be another conference in 10 years.

    Never heard a thing about Cloud party. I think people from Cloud party and Linden lab should be invited would be interesting to hear what they have to say. But maybe they do not want to.

    There was a lot of talk about the Hypergrid and of course the Hypergrid I seriously cool. This is a game changer. I want to own my stuff on my computer not I some other peoples servers. I think I have to put some of the dev grid on the Hypergrid. Thinking.

    ccparty

    So in the true spirit of the Hypergrid I went over to the OSgrid for some official after party. Listened to live music and chatting away.People where coming and going and someone said that we where 36 at most moving around, dancing and no chat lag. Just had to ask. We were running on a 4 core Windows server, with 2 gb of ram I think. I do not really remember because it was getting late and I am a old person.

    So the impression that stands out is that it really worked well. Maybe it is time to go to Beta. LOL.

    We joined in from all over the world under a common interest and made it something to really remember.

  • Opensim conference:What to wear.

    confgrid_wear

    I visited the grid today and I realized I have nothing to wear to the dance. I have a lot of cool clothes on the Second life grid but they cant be moved so I have to do some uploads of some old clothes I made years ago. Naked is not an option.

    I still think that we should be able to use the things we have bought on any grid. I want to own my avatar everywhere in any virtual world and the stuff I have paid for. There got to be a solution of rights. I want a bigger hyper grid!

  • Opensim conference:Looking good.

    Conf grid

     

    We are coming up to the weekend of the

    http://conference.opensimulator.org/2013/

    I have been visiting the grid a few times now and everything look really good.

    Yesterdays load test also worked ok. Many avatars and the chat did not break.

    Me and all the other guys. I wanted more hippoes, but not.

    Starting to look forward to it.

  • Another nice place to visit.

     

    The looking glass_001

     

    There are so many places to see and go to.

    http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Horizon%20Dream/163/182/26

    This place: “ The Looking Glass is the joint creation of Marcus Inkpen and Sharni Azalee. Our art and designs populate an island on which we entertain and support the arts in SL as well as host live music, particle shows and poetry readings.”

     

    As a game designer I really would have liked to see what these guys could do if they did not have the restrictions of Second life.

    Maybe building a full world. Everything is very well done and the texture work is excellent at many places.

  • Sometimes Second life is better than real life.

    coolshoes

    I bought these shoes in SL and now I realize that I really really would like a pair in real.

    They look expensive so maybe I could not afford them in RL. Lucky me I did not pay a fortune in SL.

  • dieudonne

    dieudonne, a photo by phil sidek on Flickr.

    I am following the the Second life flicker feed and everyday i am amazed. All the great pictures made in SL.

    As a real life photographer i find all my SL colleagues to be more than creative and i know how much work a good picture is.

    Found this one in the feed to.

  • I am back

    I am back by SL explorer
    I am back, a photo by SL explorer on Flickr.

    Got my old account back from Linden lab and i have really missed being able to post and write from inside SL. Kind of cool and i love it. From cyberserenity Vella via bloghud.com

  • My winter studio

    My winter studio

    It is soon time to move in to the house. As winter comes my studio gets colder and colder. I have a mini studio inside on wheels so i can follow the light when i paint. Sorry to say it is soon time to start using it.

    Winter lots of white. Did i buy more?

  • We are up and running again.

    Servers online but dev server not coming up until tomorrow.

    Have to make more changes in the network next week. Until then just running!!!

  • Blog changes

    As we are building a new work site att 2worlds2go.net. So we have to move the tech info to this blog . Its just info on when we do work or when the servers are up or down. The reason that we put it on a outside site like blogger is that if our servers goes down we cant put information on them so this is a useful solution.
  • Servers down for the rest of the day.

    The Osgrid island and some websites going to be down for a few hours. Rebuilding the  network and moving some of the servers. It takes a few hours. But i hope to be up and running at the end of the day.
  • 2worlds2go city growing in Opensim

    2worlds2gocity

    My little city is slowly growing in my Opensim world.

    The server have been running for two weeks now while i am building.

    No stops nothing just running,

    For you tech people out there its a OpenSUSE 11.0 _64 bit.

    It is also running Joomla and Wordpress and its a hdcp, router and mail server.

    Many of the buildings are from different competitions in Second life.

    I have transferred them with Second Inventory. Yes i have all rights to them. I never copy anybody's work. Some of the textures are public domain though,

    I hope my little world will be ready soon and out on the net for everybody to see.

  • Back to Linux


    Back to Linux
    Originally uploaded by nikki_webmistress

    After trying out the new Windows 7 for a few weeks i found it to have the same problems as Vista had in the beginning. Drivers for sound not working. You cant use the XP mode without a new computer. I got so frustrated and i dont want to go thru my Vista experience again so i installed OpenSUSE 11.1. Thats what i am running now and it works very well after a few installs. I did not say Linux is easy. I think Windows 7 will be ok after a few years my Vista machines are fine now. But i think i wait with the upgrades. And i found that Wine on Linux runs my old XP programs so why use the XP mode in Windows 7. I hope the force is with me.

  • ABBA hits the Ice hotel in Second life.

    abbasl

    The Icehotel in SL is a good place to go for some fun. Regular nights with music and fun stuff. Tonight it was ABBA in the more stylish SL way. I had a lot of fun and so did the crowd. And some disco afterwards with all the songs i love. My life in SL is great some nights.

  • Second life art market.

    SLartmarket

    The new build in SL. I finally got some use for a this house. Its a build from several years ago and it have been living in my inventory since then.

    But now its my office for the art market in SL. And i can take out some of my collection of art. There are many good artists in SL making a lot of good art. I have collected some of the best. Maybe its time for a exhibition again..

  • Finally the new logo!

    Newlogo

    The new 2worlds2go logo and hopefully a new website will follow.

    It works on the 2world2go building in Second life. I just hope it will be everywhere.

  • Finally its time for fashion

    Its time to put a new mark in Second life fashion. A new name and a new designs. I think its going to be a lot of fun to do new and wonderful fashion.
    I really hope to do as wonderful dresses as the one i am wearing in the picture. Its Drama by Nonna Hedges one of my favourite designers in Second life. I know it will take some time and a lot of hard work. But its a dream coming thru. See you on the runway.
    Yours fashion designer Rebecca de Milneaux


  • The first things i made in Second life.

     

    pool1

    This is my very very first thing i made in Second life. A small pool. I remember doing it for my house garden and i cant find it in my inventory today but it was not that complicated as you can see.

     

    It started me out as a builder exploring the build tools.

     

     

     

     

    nilshouse

    And this is the first house i made. For me. I had it for a long time and i developed it in  to a mall buying all the land around it.

     

    Later i sold the mall to a chain of malls and so i got into buying, developing and selling land. I really had a lot of fun in those days.

     

    office1

    And this is my first furniture. Of course i needed a office when i started out my career in SL.

     

    It was really fun days. Everything are more professional these days. Takes away a lot of the fun fun.

  • Avatars avatars avatars just everywhere.

    aionbeta

    I have just logged in to Aion beta and look what i found. Many many gamers that wanted to take a look at the new game.Online gaming is really not dead. All the server where full. I have played this part of the game before so i just wait and log in another day. Never seen that many people not even on the biggest dance floors in Second life.

    It was fun.

  • Nilsart Village in Second life.

    nilsart village

    Soon to be open in Second life but I am still getting stuff in to it.
    I have made all off the buildings and roads so I suppose its all in a Beta format right now.
    I am also trying to find some nice products for the different stores and make the mall into a sellable
    Project. It should be possible to make all off the buildings in to products have not decided on that one yet.

    You are welcome to visit and maybe give me some pointers on how you think the village will develop.

  • Now i am a Google Lively developer.

    Lively

    Lively is a new 3D chatt from Google. I think its going to get big beacause its Google and you run it in your explorer or mozilla. Most computers can run it ok, the graphic is not heavy.

    I am going to do some developing and then we will see.

  • E learning 2.0 conferance at home.

    I really like the possibilities of the web and Second life. I have a sick cat at home and can’t go anywhere so in front of the big screen and SL and my laptop for communication it just works anyway.
    And e learning really has some new ideas on how to use Second life for learning and all the tools you can use.

    elearning
    A very interesting day. But of course you do miss the coffee and the contact making but I suppose you can do that anyway.
    So my cat is better and I got something done at home. Great.

  • The old world and new



    Sometimes you have to relax in Second and first life. So Ewa Aska invited me to a party. And of course i went. A total funny gang and thinking of the Burma situation in red shirts. We do something for democracy in the world, yes we do. S it is my night of i am drunk in RL as in SL but thats ok. I am super amazed about the animations. When i started Sl it was nothing like this. WOW we are really expanding. Yes its super to party in Sl as in in Real.
  • New 3D worlds

    I have been checking out the new 3D worlds that are in development. Multiverse and Kaneva. They are nice platforms but i think there is a big need for better game and 3D developers before any of them really will take off and be great products.
    And when you go in to those worlds you can see that the Second Life client is not that bad even though it crashes sometimes. The total freedom to create what ever you like in world makes it the best platform for developing new 3D graphics.

    I just want to take the stuff i make out of there and reuse it in other programs, anyone got a suggestion?
  • Dreams competition


    So i am competing in Second life again. This time its a build of a new mall at Dreams. I think its kind of fun to do one of these competitions now and then. Keeps up your building skills.

    This time its a very modern build. A wide building for exploring and hopefully shopping. I never win these things but i can always sell the thing to some new mall owner that want something special.

    Oh yes by the way these days i am a wizard.
