virtual (wannabe) escolta

Tuesday, February 8, 2011

My first virtual village for my Philippine History project.

It's not dense enough for a Philippine pueblo but there is a need to limit the prims to conserve computer resources.

Sugarcane field for the sugar run quest of my Philippine history game project

In the center of the field is a trapiche or sugarcane press. The sugar run quest is just a collecting game that will allow students to explore the world and learn about the economy of 19th century Philippines; that is based on crop export. There are no monsters to kill here.

Orientation area of my Philippine history game project

I decided to go with an open area plaza instead of creating buildings so as to facilitate navigation for users who have yet to learn navigation in Open Simulator. At the same time having a single place with all the needed tools for playing and learning would prevent fragmentation especially for an expected low number of users such as a class. The tools here are hypergates, sloodle objects, graffiti board, forum rss and greeters that I turned into npcs for the quests.

The open areas are for students generated content and sandboxes.
