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.

10 Years of Active Worlds

Today is my 10:th anniversary as Active Worlds user. First time I visited at Alphaworld, I was impressed by the freedom of building. I soon built there many structures as a tourist.
My first building was deleted some years ago, but I rebuilt it from a backup using a bot. It still stands at its original site at Alphaworld.

Building Some Nature Elements

Last year I found out a new method of making landscapes and terraining at Alphaworld and posted some images about it in this blog.

I've made quite much terraining in the city since, but usually left it without nature elements, due the lack of time. Now the first layers of nature have arrived near Mini Fukuoka suburb of Horizon City. Naturally, I plan to make the whole city more nature-like at some point, but that will take some time..

Tri-Bridges and Jump Points

Inspired by a new city that is coming at Alphaworld, I've rebuilt old area near the Horizon City GZ. I had to delete an old bridge that was built year 2000. I don't like deleting old objects, but sometimes old must be go to let new come in.
You can get near this place when you are at Alphaworld by typing ^jump Horizon City. It uses new global chat commands that are implemented in Alphaworld.

Winter Building Contest Gives More Powers to Horizon City

There was a themed building contest at Winter-world some time ago. I participated the contest with Horizon City -citizenship, the building account of which nearly half of the city is built. V4-building rights were givent to top builders and the HC -citizenship scored by coming 3:rd! Special building features can now be used at Alphaworld with that account too... Finally!
