Day 2 really went vertical. My own lighthouse might have been tall for 5 seconds, but yesterday it was dwarfed by Emma Maybe’s cloud-piercing radio tower. And less than a day later Chris Craft put in a Space Needle that shot another 60 meters of vertical ascent past Emma!
Measured from the bottom of the ocean at 0m:
- ETS Lighthouse deck: +45m
- Emma’s Radio Tower top: +85m
- Chris Craft’s Space Needle observation deck: +145m
We had an avatar confab in the evening. Discussed possible Architecture workshops and other ideas.
Later Ivy came by and said that my ideas for CAA are probably nuts.
So much of our VR Architecture is unnecessarily yolked to RL considerations. We’re so familiar with RL issues, needs, and possibilities, that perhaps we don’t even know how VR is different.
For example, IRL you need a roof on your house to keep out sun, rain, and robbers. In VR you don’t have that need.
Ivy says nope. There’s tons of griefers in SL and you definitely need a roof.
