The Lost Castle Ukimido Welcome area in opensim

The Lost Castle Ukimido Welcome area in opensim

Lately we have spent our time creating a welcome area for The Lost Castle. Miyoko suggested we include the ambiance of the  Ukimido Pavilion located on the Sagi pond at Nara, Kansai as our main building and welcome place. It sounded like a brilliant idea, a few days later Miyoko is on her way  to Nara to take photos and get a feel for her new 3D project. Meantime  I worked on the  terrain for the megaregion we hope to attach to OS Grid a bit later. The intention is to create a mountain landscape region containing mainly nature. A place for exploring and maybe a place where you can find...

Miyoko Solo and P3d display a dragonfly in The Lost Castle

Miyoko Solo and P3d display a dragonfly in The Lost Castle

I ike to show you more 3D art from Miyoko with a little help from the friendly p3d people. This time a dragonfly  and a Funkia wildflower from Japan. P3d is a nice way to show digital models and if you have a modern browser with WebGL enabled it will give you an interactive 3D view.  You can interact with the model  by using the small toolbar on the left side of the screen. We are still learning how to use this tool and we need to improve the way we texture. Technology like WebGL and html5 makes it possible to use the modern browser like a 3D viewer not having to download any  plugins. Please...

Miyoko Solo’s clover in The Lost Castle display by p3d

As you might know Miyoko has a love for all things nature and specially all things nature in Japan. Miyoko is also a 3D artist and modeler , together we have worked on The Lost Castle for some time. 3D modelling is fun and it is a great way to explore "the artist within you". The 3D form can be a bit difficult to show on a 2 dimensional screen. With the help of "p3d" we can now show you a bit more of our work. P3d is a very clever tool using WebGL and a modern browser. You should be able to see Miyokos Clover in 3D if you are using the latest version of either Chrome or Firefox and have webGL...
