I love these very dark and very well made pictures. SL really have it´s own type of art and photographers.

 

It is just great work.

Experimental video

It just started out with me wanting here to slowly look in to the camera and I wanted a face that was different and not to symmetric. Really a simple job but when you get hooked on something you really just keep on going.

I think that’s what creativity is. Continue to work until you find some kind of hook or something to work on. Now I have a lot of material. Develop it further or stop?

Move on to something else or this could be the thing.

It is funny how a very small thing can lead in new directions. It is what gets me up in the morning. Not knowing what's next.

The portal to ghost town and the road are finished. Need to do a prim count. I do not think I can get everything in to the sim as I want but I have my own kingdom.

Lendonia is a tribute to my mother. It comes from here name Lena. God I am bright. LOL

The big wall is finished and now I have to build the city behind it. Work,,,,

Come and see.

More about the exhibition coming later right now it is TGIF.

oldschool

I found some old software on a CD that I wrote many years ago and I wanted to update I thought it maybe could be used with Wine. The software is written in Visual studio 6 and Visual basic pro v4 so there was a problem. I have tried to transfer it to .NET but it is a total rewrite and not really worth it.

I decided to upgrade it as it is but I needed VS 6. It is not running well since Win 98 so I used VirtualBox to install a Win98SE on my workstation. And then I just installed VS 6 on that. It worked great when I remembered to bridge the VirtualBox network card. That was two hours I never get back. Then I could download the software from my ftp server and start the work. As you can see on the picture. I got in to the deep part of my bookshelf and digged out the old documentation. It is BOOKS. I remember working with them before and how I hated working with documentation on the computer. But what do you know? I have gotten used to web and computer docs. You can search and you got all the web to learn from. I like the books but it takes forever to find stuff.

Visual studio worked great. I have done some work on VS 2012 but not enough to really learn it, maybe I never do. Working with VS 6 was a little bit like coming home.

The first software I compiled today is the one making graphics. It is still good and I wanted it for my next exhibition in Second life. After changing some formats it worked ok but I had to do some rewrites. Tested it on Win 7 and XP so I now know I need a installer so all files goes in the setup. It is a great piece of software and it was fun to work with the old stuff again.

I put it on 2worlds2go.org when I am ready with it.

building

I wanted to test the new build tools in Cloud party. And it worked ok. You can build a lot of stuff with these simple tools. Not really a working toolbox yet but it is nice to see that building will be a part of this world.

I think building is one of the most important activity in many virtual worlds and it should be easy so everyone can join in and create.

Mesh is very good for us that are used to work with 3D software but I think it is to complicated to learn for the average builder. Texturing 3D models is a science in it self and it takes some knowledge to optimize a mesh.

I think that the Second life building tools are good and and you can do cooperative builds. If I could use them for creating mesh object I would be very happy. It is so much more fun to build stuff in world where people drop by and you see the landscape than sitting in front of some 3D software all alone.

More building for the people.
