after watching Ms Booth’s latest video and seeing the use of the Giant Tree by so many students, i thought about the open building platforms it has and how it’s nice to have defined places to do tasks. OpenSim can be too much of a blank slate and it can be a good thing to guide others in what they should do (ie, a specific task like “go build a barbie on the space ship . . . them build some shrimp!”) o_O
i did some 3D doodling this weekend (recovering from a mild cold and fever – bah!) and made a huge UFO that is basically a round platform to build on and it is set on an alien island
the ship is hollow and is not detailed but has a scripted top that goes up and down on a touch. there are two versions of it in the OAR – a hovering (or blasting off) version and a landed one. both could be used as building platforms for school projects . . .
the region can be visited at Kitely here for the next few weeks
all the world’s a stage =)
