Hax Nuit inspires


Hax Nuit is the inspiration for subQuark’s Zombalamba game. it’s a board game we’re working on and making a non-computer thing is a refreshing change of pace (and a nice break from relentless InDesign typesetting, ugh)

Bella the cat! – Isabella! she’s a huge help and loves to get rid of zombies in her own way!

but how friggin’ cool is what Graham Mills is doing with Hax Nuit!?!

this is paraphrased from him from the Kitely forum:

“The NPC’s behaviour forms the basis of various epidemiological puzzles. I do find that having a build like Hax Nuit to work from helps me get past the “blank page” block.”

for the lay person, that means ZOMBIES! (not really but kinda close, the CDC did a zombie preparedness page btw) =)

NPCs were my dream for Hax Nuit when i hooked up with Ohn Lang, but she suddenly poofed and was never heard from again (prob my fault, my avatar stinks – never changes her underwear! ewww) =p

thanks Graham for thinking of such a clever project for university students and thanks Keith for bringing this to my attention and the suggested fix for a better performing OAR!

ps – i think i’ve mentioned the origin of the name Hax Nuit and here it is again. it’s a french derivation for the nickname of this abandoned city – Hacker’s Sleepless City (which is what i used to get the Chinese name from Google Translate). the real world inspiration for this build was the Kowloon Walled City which was an unregulated and ungoverned area in Hong Kong. i wanted it to be a literal island for both OpenSim purposes and to convey the feel of the real Kowloon. i also wanted it to feel isolated and distant from any mainland and have been a long ago colony of France (the french colonised lots of the far east but not Hong Kong as far as i know). so Hax is short for hacker (and oddly enough, my name too) and Nuit is frog for night – Hacker’s night – Hax Nuit, which i envision sounds like Hacks Knew It

UPDATE: Dot and the Devokan Trust have Hax Nuit in Kitely!

consider this as official as possible – the Devokan Trust can do anything they like with the Hax Nuit OAR,  including commercial use, and they do not need to give attribution

  2. i dunno if allowing someone to use Hax Nuit to figure out how to release zombies into the main population is a good thing *looks over shoulder, the NSA is prob watching*

    i’m only a reflection of people like you White Star – if it wasn’t for you and your HOURS of work with me – none of this would be possible! (remember my birthday weekend when you spent all day Sunday – like 9 hours – with me online doing the SoaS stuff?)

    maybe as a big mouth, that’s my part of sharing the excellent work of others with the community

    thanks White Star for always be true to yourself and supporting me – i greatly appreciate it and draw on it for motivation =)

  3. Ener my dear… It has ALWAYS BEEN a Joy & Treat to work with you on SOAS and whatever we came up with that could use my touch, such as it is… Of all the folks I have met through OpenSimulator / SL etc you are one of the finest examples of the good souls out there !

    You have so much GOOD KARMA Dear Ener, that it is inevitable that it comes back your way 10 fold and may it do so whenever you need a pinch of sunshine to make you smile.

    I’m really glad you have hooked up with someone to help you out with the SOAS deployment on multi-platform Win/Nix/Mac… So many have gained & benefitted from that single effort of yours that it makes my heart smile, which is a tough thing to do for me these days. SOAS is a GIFT that keeps giving in more ways that many can comprehend… It has given many the ability to experience VW Technologies and see the potentials that may have never otherwise been able to do so on their own, which is something that is close to my heart & soul…

    Always the Best to you Ener !
