This is a region I started more than a year ago as an open tutorial region. What I had in mind was some kind of learning parcours along which users would get introduced to the basic abilities to use OpenSim, which mainly means using the viewer. And that’s where the first problem was.
Everyone uses a different viewer, and viewer development changes faster than you can teach people how to use the cool new stuff. So either this tutorial would have to be constantly updated and incredibly complex to teach all kinds of different viewers, or it would fall short all too soon.
The idea was to have “the path”, along which the essential skills would be taught (walking, chatting, zooming, inventory, dressing, teleporting, etc.) and, if they stray “off the beaten path” into the forested landscape, could discover more advanced tutorials there (building, editing, animating, hypergridding, scripting, etc.). This was way ambitious.
The tutorials were planned to be small notecards that would read as if written by someone’s notes on discovering this strange new world inside worlds, and leaving them along the path for other travellers to find. This was even more ambitious.
So in the end, I didn’t get very far with it. I finished the first few stations, the landscape, layout and most buildings, but it needs a lot more writing and explaining, and I just lack the time to do all that. However, I decided to release it here for now. Maybe someone will find it useful, or pick up where I had left off. If anything, it’s a nice little landscape to walk in.Path V0.5 - Downloaded 489 times
