About this blog and its purpose

There are many things to do in Activeworlds virtual reality environment. I've chosen my way. It is a way of a builder. There are also many ways to build. My way is to create a virtual town.

The town is Horizon City. It was established January 2000 and it quickly became one of the most popular cities back then, with hundreds of builders. Besides that the town serves as historic reminder of how things were at Activeworlds, it is still constantly developing virtual experience, displaying latest features and architectural possibilities.

In this blog I will keep track how the things are going in Horizon City and in Activeworlds community.

Streets turn

New standard for the city streets is released.

Some of those old street.rwx -objects are already replaced with new objects. Replacing all old streets seems nearly impossible as there were 35.001 street-objects in the city when I last time checked. I scanned all objects in the city area with a bot in January 2004. Each object covers 10 x 10 meters of land. That makes them cover over 3,5 km²! Each ten meters of new streets takes 11 objects. If all of the old ones would be replaced, the addition for object count would be over 350.000.
Gonna let beltways to be as they are...
