Virtual world artist and blogger. Developer of software and stuff. Read more at My blog
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.
I should have started editing my short film but instead I put in the Black forest in Lendonia. Its like when I was studying I will start writing but first I have to clean the house and do the dishes.
But the forest looks good.
And oh yes. I have put in a nice work place to in the shade. You need a nice place to work even in a virtual world. haha..
Is it going to be a success? Naaa I do not think so. Why?
It is like many Microsoft products a little bit to late. It have many nice functions but when I see how I use the Xbox 360 I have, I do not believe in it.
I put my XBox 360 away and did not miss it for months. I never use it. But I do use the controller. The family have worn out two of those. But I have the controller connected to a PC that’s connected to the big screen. It runs a Windows 7 media center and all of the family's favorite games.
For me that means World of warcraft and several other MMO s and of course the Second life viewer. None that works on a Xbox. On the PC I have Steam and a selection of other games. Family photographs and any program I want to use. Music streams from Spotify and others. The point is that I decide what I want to install and run. Not Microsoft.
I also have a Kinect. That was fun for about 5 minutes. And controlling the the screen or multimedia is just stupid. A remote is so much more effective.I use my Kinect to make Second life and game animations.
No I do not think I will by a new Xbox. I want my freedom to use what ever software I want. Or to write any software I want and publish it. I have also started to look at the world of Linux media centers. When it comes to retire my Windows 7 I am ready to change and it wont be 8 or a Xbox.
I WANT to decide what I use.
I am working on a lot of new web templates i hope they will be on the download area soon. First i have to do the new exhibition. Websites are getting new updated templates. Ready tomorrow.
Some new pictures from the new area.
I want some more ground clutter but I do not want to do the area to hard on the graphics card and I want everybody to be able to do there own improvements.
It looks nice and have its own special style. Lighting is very important. If it was a game I could have done it differently. It is ok.
After some testing we are now moving away from MySQL to MariaDB. Work as good and MariaDB now comes with OpenSUSE. The developer grid could be down for some time during the transfer.
