OpenSim community loses admired leaderHypergrid Business

OpenSim community loses admired leaderHypergrid Business | Happenings - Virtual Worlds | Scoop.it

For many years, former IBMer Justin Clark-Casey has been the eternally-youthful face of OpenSimulator development, the place where the buck stopped, and the president of the Overte Foundation which oversees OpenSim licensing issues.

Then, on Sunday, the Justin Era ended with a post on his blog, Everything that has a beginning has an end, in which he said that he will be significantly scaling back his work on OpenSim in order to focus on new projects...

Improved Item Exchange with Other Grids | Virtual World Blog

Improved Item Exchange with Other Grids | Virtual World Blog | Happenings - Virtual Worlds | Scoop.it

We updated the system today with a change that makes it easier to take items from other grids into Kitely, and then take them with you when you leave Kitely to visit other grids.

This update also includes several bug fixes, including a bug that sometimes prevented Hypergrid users from teleporting into Kitely.

I was  Glad to see the export/import logic has been addressed. It had been a problem bringing free stuff from other grids to Kitely so this makes life easier.

Roleplay United Federation Starfleet: The Arrival 

My watch shows 10.30 UST, time enough before the meeting with the officer. It was always my dream to be in the services of the "United Federation Starfleet" and now I am here at 3rdRock Grid on the region "Starfleet Astarios" one of the colonies within the Starfleet realm...

"In particular, that means support for WebGL — which was used most recently by the Cloud Party virtual world to create a Second Life-style immersive experience right in a Web browser, no download required.
The end result should make it easier to create Web-based virtual world browsers without worrying about making it work with particular equipment." wrote Maria Korolov.

You Don't Have to Live Like a Refugee ~ Nara's Nook

You Don't Have to Live Like a Refugee ~ Nara's Nook | Happenings - Virtual Worlds | Scoop.it

With the continued outage of OSGrid, the metaverse is doing it's best to accommodate displaced avatars. Much like the human counterparts who flee disasters, homeless OSG residents sought the nearest and most familiar port in a storm--Metropolis. As weeks of outage stretched into months of outage, as Metro's servers were pushed to the limit managing new members and expanding inventories, refugees  sought alternative  homes where they could begin rebuilding what they'd lost...

Alexina's insight:

Interesting use of NPCs. Nara writes, "One of our favorite things to do at Nook Grid is make book boyz--NPC characters that were heroes in our novels--and set them up as dance partners at our First Friday book birthday parties each month. As you can imagine, we were all over Mata Hari's new dance system that allows us to deliver male and female characters as dance partners from the dance ball."
