Progress Report 1

So my build has been coming along nicely so far and I have managed to create the beach house itself. That is not to say that I won’t make any changes to what I currently have if I feel something is not quite the way I like it. Read more…


The Design

For the design I have been looking at images online that or close too or reflect certain aspects of what I would like my build to look like/include. The reason for this is my drawing skills literally do not exist, so if I was to attempt to draw out parts of my design I think it would look more like one of those magic eye things where you have to look at it in a certain way to understand what it is.

The Initial Plan

The Idea:

I have decided that I would like to do content creation and at this point in time am leaning towards the visual complexity path. So the idea that I have is to construct a basic beach house with some furniture inside. I say beach house but I’m not sure that would be exactly what it is, I guess more of a modern style holiday home. I am planning for the building itself to not be that complex, in a way a more minimalistic design with straight angles and simple texturing. The idea is that a majority of the complexity will come from the furniture housed inside. For the house itself I am thinking that I would like to have it as open plan living with a kind of loft as the second story. I am also planning to create a staircase that leads up to the loft as well. I was initially thinking of a spiral staircase but I have a feeling that with the camera angles in Second Life it might not be the best idea. Read more…

Protecting Intellectual Property

So what exactly is Intellectual Property?

“A work or invention that is the result of creativity, such as a manuscript or a design, to which one has rights and for which one may apply for a patent, copyright, trademark, etc” (obtained from Google definitions: )

Within Second Life there are many imaginative individuals that create very awesome content. Because of this there needs to be some way for Second Life Residents to be able to protect their intellectual property from theft and reproduction. While Second Life is a virtual world it is still actually party of the real world and therefore real world copyright laws need to be followed here as well. Read more…
