SpotOn3D plugin installing

I started playing with SpotOn3D the other day.

It’s a browser based virtual world experience.

You need to install the SpotOn3D plugin.

SpotOn3D Hippo Imprudence

SpotOn3D Hippo Imprudence side by side, one Hippo instance in the browser and the other instance Imprudence desktop logged in with 2 different avatars on PLANE Bootcamp island

Looks like it’s also using an IFrame to make it an even more seemless experience from browser to viewer.

PLANE virtual world Bootcamp Guidebook

PLANE virtual world Bootcamp Guidebook – A4 and A5 booklet versions

Today I made a A4 print friendly version of the PLANE virtual world Guidebook.

The original guidebook is made as an A5 booklet but it is a rather manually intense process to print, fold and staple together.

It didn’t scale well.

The majority of printers are set up by default to print A4.

Based on user feedback we also found that a lot of users like to have a printed versions of the guidebook handy whilst they completed the steps in the instructions.

I picked up this little notebook from OfficeWorks for $1.50.

It’s designed with passport like colours and size.

I put my avatars mug shot in there and added some PLANE virtual world specific things.

And stamped it with my ‘Like’ stamp, was also looking around for travel stickers.

Turned out ok, I reckon it could be applied to our PLANE project.

Where’s Matt?

Missing NPC Matt

Missing NPC Matt

On our PLANE virtual world Bootcamp we have 3 NPCs (non-player characters).

During our Feb 2012 user trials we had a server crash and the PLANE virtual workld grid had to be restarted.

On restart our 3 NPCs disappeared.

The server re-boot must have scared them away!

With some manual resetting of the scripts they (were found and) appeared again.

However Matt mysteriously disappeared after one of the trial sessions.

I eventually found him at one of the bottom corners of the Bootcamp island.

Reset his postition co-ordinates and all is good again.
