Are there any projects or applications like Second Life?
Sorry for replying to an old message, but I'm just getting back into the Blender forums after being away for a long timehiker wrote:Are there any projects or applications like Second Life?
My project is one. See http://interreality.org .
It's still in an alpha/experimental stage, and are getting ready for a large improvement to the core system. Of course we think it also has some nice advantages over Second Life, though it's still missing many features that SL has, and we don't have any good worlds yet. We need users to test and give ideas, developers to help implement stuff, and artists to try making worlds and give us suggestions. Or, you can be a combination of all three.
There is a script on our site for exporting a "COD" file from Blender that you can load into a world server (or locally for testing). Only some features in Blender are usable, see the manual and the web site for details. At some point soon I'll probably write a tutorial that walks through the process.
