When i am inworld i use my Oculus rift so if i do not answer the chat it is because i cant see my keyboard. Try voice.
Visited the beach today and i am amazed. The mesh quality of things in Second life. And done right it is not very hard on the graphics card. Reducing lag. If it is done right.
I used my Oculus to inspect the nice work and it made it a very nice experience, blink, blink. ( Did you see that.)
Now we only need a new viewer and some some new shaders to play around with.
The thing we all have been looking for is finally out there. Linden labs Sansar. I have been checking it out for a while but now i can write about it and that is nice.
And so is Sansar. Nice.I have a Oculus so i can check out the experiances all the way. And i still say Sansar is nice. The graphics good. The update is good. Will be great if you want to do a simple game. And i suppose people will create new tools you can use to make buildning easy. As a user of AltspaceVR, sinespace, High Fidelity and now Sansar i just ask my self "will anybody ever use these products?"
It have a distinct feel of Blue Mars. You wait for the download and then come into a small space that look great and wonder why am i here? Is there any reason at all?
There will be some cool games i guess. But if i want to play a really cool game i have Steam.
At the moment i think it is a question about wait and see.
PS/ When i get out of Sansar i go back to my ordinary life at the Hypergrid and Second life. It is more fun! /DS
It was time to start work on Lendonia again so i did some updates and put in some new stuff. Nine regions is a lot of stuff to handle. It is very empty right now and i have done 2 areas almost ready but now i come to the castles and towns. Have to read up on what they should look like.
Well it is still a Beta. Wanted to look different and i do. So went thru the process of getting a new avatar and it worked all the way to The High Fidelity viewer and then something did not work out.
But i have a new Avatar. Now to get the textures right.
Things start to look better. Could not use my Leapmotion hands. Pity when you can not give people the finger. It starts to look like a world now. Most things work and now they need people and developers i guess?
It is fun to play around for a while. But i think i wait for a while to develop anything. Still have not figuered out how to make a solid ground. Not that difficult but you know there are other worlds to visit.
