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.

A milestone

A milestone was achieved when Horizon City ad was placed to Alphaworlds ground zero. It would have been almost impossible to have anything placed on display there just some years ago. This is one small proof that AW is slowly going to better direction: users get heard much better than before. Thanks Flagg!

Central area mapped

It's been over 2 years since I last time made a map in AW. I will someday update the old map over Horizon City. It will take hours to scan the whole area. Meanwhile I made partial map over the city central area. The area shown in this map is about 220 x 150 coordinates. The old map covers 1000 x 1000 coords and was made in 2004.

Gate Network in use

The Gate Network, which is quite similar with the Stargate in TV-series, has now expanded to Horizon City. You find it here. It connects several virtual locations within ActiveWorlds universe.
