***2016 PEOPLE: TECH: Konk Combat Game Builder, with NPC interactions. The Metaverse Tour investigates

Konk Combat Game Builder, with NPC interactions. 
The Metaverse Tour investigates
In virtual worlds, you don't just play games.  You can build games to suit you.  Here is a report on game builder software that supports many common features of combat games: health and healing,  morality, fighting, etc.  And you can play the game by yourself or with your friends.  You can modify the theme--make it educational, if you want. 

  • Watch on YouTube 
  • -
  • Go to Konk Combat Game Builder:  HG Address:
  • grid.kitely.com:8002:konk Role Play Sims 2
  • Put the HG address in the Find bar of the World Map, click FindTP
  • Web address:  http://opensimworld.com/hop/75529-konk-Role-Play-Sims-2 
  • In Kitely, use the World Map to find and go to the sim: konk Role Play Sims 2
  • Buy the Game Builder system:  
  • Buy it: Konk Combat and Role PlayGame Builder System V1.5
  • Web site
  • Don't think of this just as a game of combat.  
  • Think how it could be used for other objectives such as education.  
  • Here, I speculate a bit.  All study is a quest.   
  • And some education is based on game principles such as challenge and winning the increments.  
  • Note: I speculate here about how a game like this could be designed for instruction.
  • The game system cited in this report might require major changes to function this way.

Metaverse events, current and upcoming


Metaverse tours people gather 
at the starting place
The signs on the wall give us HUDs
  • A Heads-Up Display appears on your viewer screen when you wear it.
  • It shows your status, things in your game inventory, etc.
  • For the tour most of us stayed OOC (Out Of  Character)  
  • Valerious Strongborn hosted the tour and showed us how things worked
The crafting shop
  • You can make things of use to you.
  • If you have the right parts.
  • You will get most of the parts in your exploration of the game world.
  • Some things are also on offer here, if you have game money to pay for them.
Crafting Table
  • You use this table to combine things in your inventory to make things you can use.
  • A Chemistry Mage could make lots of things if there were chemistry stuff around.
  • Beginners in chemistry could learn a lot from a well designed game like this.
  • What would happen if we combined a game builder and a chemistry teacher?
A trunk that may offer something useful
  • You have to pick the lock.
  • Suppose above the lock, you saw the number:
  • 3.141.....
  • Would that challenge your skill as a Math Mage?
What is the first quest?
  • You start by figuring out how to get out of this cavern.
  • As the game is set up here, you have to fight your way past the villains.
  • Under my imagined rules, the villains are pacified in the presence of a Mage.
  • But the Mage must have a great reputation or must answer a challenge:
  • "Math Mage, what 3D form encloses the greatest volume with the least surface?"
There are NPC players to fight and slay

The secret of the NPCs

A Non-Player Character (NPC) is a duplicate of an avatar and can be animated to carry out simple tasks like sword fighting 

  • You get game coins when you slay NPCs.
  • If you are killed you go back to the spawn site and start over.
