2worlds2go news. Storys from 2worlds2go.

I have started work on a new menswear collection for Second life. I think that men should have the opportunity to have a nice stylish wardrobe.

 

I think i will call it the Ipad collection because i do the sketches on my Ipad. Really need a better tool for making fashion in SL.

 

I have too dream something up.

 

 

 

From here i can connect to the web, servers, virtual worlds and Second life. And i got a new chair that do not kill my back. It is not a glamours life but it is my choice. ( I have been playing the latest Deus ex right thru for the last days so maybe it is ok).

Thinking of a web cam. It would be nice to se some people once in a while. 

This afternoon i will start the work on my Second life fashion company. Finally got some time for it. Going to be FUN. :)

Another fav artist in Second life is Annie Klavinham. Wish i could make pictures like that.

She is at Koinup. http://www.koinup.com/annieklavinham/ . And of course in SL to.

Go and see her stuff it is really good.

 

Keswick my old house

It is still there after all these years. Not many of my early builds are still around but to my surprise this one is still standing. It is a cool house from my learning days. It still looks good.

Started working on Lendonia again. Now with Opensim 0.7.5 and Bullet physics. Tried some airplane script that not really worked but that could be tweaking so I have good hope for the future. It looked good.

9 sims are a little bit to much to build so I am toying with the idea to just release it as it is.

When I got tired of Lendonia I worked some on the winter and ski sim. A broken net card have put this work in the background but after a change it is up and running again.

First pic of the new build. Wintersim.

I hope Bulletsim makes it possible to do skis. I would really like that.

Last year i started building an new server.

Now it is ready and it is working. But now i think about optimization.


My first thought was to use the RaspberryPI http://www.raspberrypi.org/ . But after some reading I found that it is really not up to run Opensim. I checked out cheap motherboards with processors. You can get them almost as cheap as a RaspberryPI.

Finally I got some old AMD 64bit motherboards and started building. OpenSUSE 12.2 and some switches and solder in some cool switches. It is noisy but it works. 

Now i want to se if i can build a very small Linux in OpenSUSE studio and run it under XEN. I also want to use MariaDB insteed of MySQL.

Right now it runs a grid of 4 islands and i run the rest on some new workstations. I want all of my developer grid island on the server. Next step must be some kind of server that optimize the network connections and it is not very good as it draws to much power. Not green at all.

If i can push down the cost for a sim to 100$ a Opensim grid starts to be good economics.

I need some extra software as i also use it as a renderfarm for 3D pictures but disk space is cheap these days.
As always the work continues.

Oh yes. I have solved my back problem with a new super chair.

Right now i am testing a new tool for doing 3D pictures. DAZ Studio 4.5 . I am not that fond of the renderer but i have found several others on the net that i can use with some tweeking.

The user interface is nice and you have thrre to select. One is very user friendly if you are just starting out with 3D images. You get some assets to start experimenting with and best of all it is free.
