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.

More 5.1 Features & More Building

The browser has got many updates recently. I'm most exited about ability to increase visibility up to 500 meters instead of previous 200 meters! It's a feature that I've waited for a long time. Another nice thing for great screenshots is wireframe rendering. Here's sample of using 500m visibility and wireframe mixed with Paint Shop Pro for pretty cool screenshot. Building on the picture is the same cubic house as in my previous post.

Tomorrow I'm going to participate a speedbuilding contest. I have no clue yet what I am building there. Will be fun for sure !
