when NPCs first came out, i was very interested in them. they sound like a great way to add life to a region. Enclave Harbour is a decent sized build with lots of municipal type places from the landfill to the hydro-electric plant to a space station. then there are also two clubs, a diner, [...]

as mentioned the other day, i’m putting my money (regions) where my mouth is by trying to see how viable a 16 region sim-on-a-stick grid will work. you can certainly make sim-on-a-stick have 16 regions but whether that is practical or not is what i want to test why test that since you have a [...]
Coffs Harbour? i had to do a double take on a tweet that let me know about sim-on-a-stick being used at a school in New South Wales Australia! (Oops correction: this is the primary school, not the high school – when i watched the video i assumed these had to be high school students! gee, [...]
Review of the relatively new, LL “approved” SINGULARITY viewer for Second Life (and Open Sim). Singularity looks a lot like the old familiar LL viewers, but has TONS of features from other viewers. Welcome back, pie wheel, and hello new cool stuff!
often i get all laggy when anyone visits us in Enclave harbour. i chalked it up to OpenSim being alpha. who knows, it could be a number of factors – me, my broadband connection, the moon and the stars. i often crash and then have a hard time getting back to the sim i was [...]
i nearly dropped my teeth (where the heck did that expression ever come from?) when i saw this article and photo this looks exactly like the solar arrays DreamWalker and i built in our OpenSim Enclave Harbour! this has to be a standard looking solar dealio because i must have seen one and forgot about it when [...]
as you may know, my move from Second Life to OpenSim was more than just going to another world. it was also a shift in what i am doing in virtual worlds that’s an important consideration if you are also looking for additional worlds, or an alternative, to Second Life. with the ability to export [...]
Ener has always loved Zeppelin’s and airships and with Second Life it was possible to create them (even though Ener’s personal zepellin was a slow beast to fly, it was a lot of fun especially when you’d get stuck against a building). Airships of all types are widespread in Second Life and, until now, have been relegated [...]
Ener asked me to write a bit about what we are doing with Enclave Harbour in Reaction Grid. In thinking about this, I wanted to say that Second Life is still the best choice for many people and you can see that by number of active users and concurrency levels. OpenSim-based worlds are growing quickly [...]
just a build for a classroom space to seat 18. easy access by flying or have fun with the uber tight, nearly-impossible-to-cam spiral ramp (mouselook works well) since Enclave Harbour is all about environmental science (with plenty of earth, physical, and life science sprinkled in) why not have an ”Organic” classroom? six neutrons, six protons, [...]
subQuark is busy writing an environmental science programme that will use virtual world content as educational activities. think of it like a field trip and inexpensive way for students to explore environmental issues. i say inexpensive because the latest craze in secondary education is all about 3D projectors and 3D content. 3D projectors are very expensive, [...]
a full day in 30 minute increments as a flickr slideshow – imprudence viewer in Enclave Harbour alpha of parasol (and evidently my body too!) and of the tree branches and even shadows on the parasol itself
hmm, we have always used blip.tv but youtube seems fine too (both are pretty compressed looking) it’s the same video, but now you have a choice! =) have fun in-world!
when i came across a beautifully done mangrove swamp on the iliveisl estate a year ago i was honestly stopped in my tracks (or, i should say, in my flying) the sense of proportion and balance just awed me. it reminded me of south florida and gave me a sense of calm as i became [...]
