Setting up your own world

Your own grid

Your own grid

Its possible to set up your own grid and if you want, use it behind your firewall. The Opensim software runs on both Windows and Linux. With a VPN connection you can meet and conference on your own operated islands behind the firewall.

You can find more on the Opensim software on this pages. Opensim.org

 Your own city

We do!

We do terraforming and construction of Islands and supply them in the oar file format. We also supply buildings and land files.

Some of them for free you can find more in the download section of the website.

On the OS grid

2worlds2go Island

Experimental stuff

The OSGrid is a great way to show of different oar files or test half ready stuff. The island will change from time to time and sonmetimes it will blow up in our face and not be online att all. But it have been up for three months without any interrupts once, I am proud of that.

I am trying to put out stuff here and do some freebe stuff to.

Finding us on the OSGrid

You need a account on the OSGrid (its free) to go to the island. OSGrid homepage.

The Osgrid island is often moving around (you do not have your place on the grid) but a map search for Nilsart or 2worlds2go will do it.

Work environment

You do not need a supercomputer to run a island. Its often enough to use some older computers beacause the server software do not need to run any graphics. We use a MySql database on a OPENSuse installation.

We have tried out a windows XP installation and it works well.

Right now we use the XP machine to run another flavor of Opensim the Realextend software Real extend homepage

Usable: Running the development islands, the OSGrid island and also its a small render farm for Pov-ray images and it runs a webserver that we can do experimental stuff on.

Development grid

Breaking stuff again and again.

Opensim is not the Second life server but its a very good way to test crazy ideas without crashing the Linden lab servers. Connections from the web to the grid. Moving and self reproducing scripts. A skyscraper script that suddenly goes crazy and make a 2000 flor building. You get the picture.

And thru a VPN tunnel its possible to sit anywhere in the world and still cooperate and test silly stuff for all developers on the internal web. Its kind of cool.

  • Back in to Sansar. Today Bryn Oh.

    Visited An evening at the Ballet by Bryn Oh. Not easy to find something you like. Bryn Oh is one of my fav artists in SL and she do not dissapoint. Like several tableau with a strong feeling of being in the theatre. I liked it.

     

    Visited some other nice places but the feeling of being alone is creeping up on you. When i visited Astro Port there was a avatar just standing there and when in VR that is just scary.

  • The quality of things in Second life.

    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.

  • Finally i can talk about Sansar.

    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

     

  • First High Fidelity avatar.

    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.
