2017 OSHG: IMAWG: Cybalounge: where you can build your web-world

Cybalounge: where you can build your web-world 
Video demonstrating the tools we will use to build web-worlds with Cybalounge.  The web-worlds of Cybalounge will much like the virtual worlds of OpenSim--built by the users to meet the requirements of the users.  

Drop by and let's talk

  • Web-world under development
  • I am there almost every day from 10-10:30 California time.
  • If there are people there to talk, I can usually stay longer.
  • Follow our development here:  Our web discussion community
  • Feel free to ask questions or make suggestions.
  • Web-worlds are a project of IMA: Web-world WG
  • We (of the virtual world community) want user-built virtual worlds.
  • We do not want to become computer programmers to build our worlds.  
  • Our virtual worlds empower artists to build.  That is how we get artistic builds.
  • Educators can build.  That's how we get educational builds.
  • If we wanted worlds that tech experts built for us, 
  • We would play computer games.  
  • We want to build our web-worlds too.
  • And Cybalounge is developing the tools to build our web-worlds.
  • The video gives us a demonstration -- it is not intended as instructional.
  • Cybalounge is in public beta.  Things may not always work as intended.

    Road map to building your web-worlds

    • The tools are in development.
    • The instructions are being written and revised. 
    • Be sure to register on this page: Web-world under development
    • There is another page that looks similar, but will connect you to a different world.
    • Don't try this if you are not comfortable being in a construction zone.

    Getting started

    • Register and log in.   You will get your own web-world 
    • Click the push-pin graphic at the bottom of the screen
    • That will show other sites connected to this web-world.  
    • Look for the Private option.  Your site is private till you make it public.
    • Click on the site under Private.  You will be able to change the name later.
    • You are welcome to try building. 
    • As with the older virtual worlds, we build our worlds while in them.
    • You may have to guess how the tools work.  
    • But you can try things and see what happens.  
    • Instructions are in development.  So next month, you may be better informed.
    • And you can ask questions.  Come to the daily inworld meeting.
    • That is at 10-10:30 am Calif. (SLT) time.  I will be there almost every day. 
    • Here is the web link: Public service Web-world
    • Your questions and feed-back will help us develop adequate instructions.
    • The basic instructions will be posted in this blog as well as in Cybalounge.
