Tsuyama castle lord was very good looking guy

皆さんご存知のように豊臣秀長は大変知的な武将で、豊臣秀吉が農民の息子でしたかなかった時から彼を支えてトップの武将になるまで経済面でも政略面まで支えた人物です。この豊臣秀長が自分の養女を忠政に正室として送り込んで繋ぎとめようとした、ということは当時の武将たちの中でも森忠政が光っていた証拠だと思います。 しかし、若い忠政にとってはいらぬお節介、既に愛人の竹という女性がいて息子まで設けていた彼としては困った事態になつてしまったといえるでしょう、それに当時の大阪城の中は淀君の偏執的な支配によって豊臣はすでに衰退しているわけで、豊臣の勢力図の中でも外様になっていたと思います。さて、忠政の兄、森蘭丸は18歳で生涯を終えるまでとても美しく聡明な若者でした。同じく忠政も美男であったといえるのではないでしょうか?しかし残っているこの彫像はあまり美男ではないですよね。

Building a new Donjon Opensimulator and Blender at work.

Building a new Donjon Opensimulator and Blender at work.

The lost Castle has a main keep or “The Donjon” It was one of the first buildings we made  and it is a mix of prims, sculpties and for a good measure a few mesh items made it in the end. It was all linked in one overly large  file and every time  you got  close to the building  things started to get a bit sticky. What about if we build a new one from mesh alone?  Start up Blender and get to work, many triangles later I mean thousands and thousands ,   we have a new Donjon. A Japanese Castle is a structure with graceful lines, simple and clean. It is a post and beam construction,...

Megaregions like them or loathe them?

Megaregions like them or loathe them?

Megaregions alone makes Opensimsulator the number One choice for 3D environments. CombineContiguousRegions = true this is the magic words in Opensim.Ini startup Megaregion lets you combine many 256 X 256 meter regions into a seamless larger region. Let me say from the start megaregion is work in progress not everything works 100%. Nevertheless if you take your time, familiarise yourself and understand the few quirks megaregions have you will find your effort well rewarded. Recently we converted our “The Lost Castle” opensimulator 0.7.3.1 20 region build to a megaregion and at the same...
