AW Demographics

Jul 22, 2000, 4:10am
Hey...

Some time back I heard this buy was doing research into AW... not exactly sure on what but im
pretty sure it had to do with demographics and statistics. I would like to contact this
individual... if anyone knows how, please enlighten me.

Thank you very much, any help will be much appreciated.

Oh yes they will go on and on about their e-Commerce but umm... *looks around* where is it? Where
is teh advertising? Where are the stores where we can go in and buy stuff? (and don't give me the
at mart crap... if THATS what they think of e-Commerce, a separate world which just links you to
their web page, its purdy sad)

EverQuest: 300,000 registered players - AW's future

Oct 6, 2000, 6:16pm
Here is my view on teh matter..... either they need to follow Eep and get gaming technologies in
there (and so long as it is a per-world thing and not affecting me in any way unless I want to enter
that world then I am OK with it) OR they need to actually do some e-Commerce. Gaming, though, seems
the only way to go at this point unless they actually ADVERTISE!!!! and Eep, Games are great. I
love a well programmed game, and AW does have the potential, but I have also played the strategy and
RPGs (Command & conquer ruled, Final Fantasy was OK). You have to have things like money to do
stuff, and I fear that if ALL of AW were converted to a game-like situation, the things that I value
so much as building, chatting, existing in a place which far surpasses Reality in many respects,
would be lost to things like having to worry that you have enough credits or umm whats it called...
nil? to do such things. Now, if you could buy a gaming world server or something like that which
hosted a gaming world... then I am all for it, and agree with Eep in every way. If ALL of AW would
be converted to such a thing, then no.

And Eep don''t reply to tis message if you are going to believe that since I don't think ALL of AW
should be game-based, that I am a twit or whatever. As for game-like features such as jumping or
picking up stuff or getting in a car or whatever, hell yes implement it at once!

Update to AW 2?

Oct 6, 2000, 8:16pm
What it is is a new version of 2.2 which supports things like create texture so its more compatible
with AW 3.0 worlds. Thats really the only difference.

STOP it with....

Oct 22, 2000, 9:42pm
Yes, I too enjoy the realism it presents, but sometimes its not too realistic. For example, I was
just standing there today and all of a sudden it went from the "night" Earth background all of a
sudden to the orangeish-fog background. Maybe they could have 10 diff backgrounds in use, 5 for the
sunrise and 5 for the sunset? Of course these would be displayed at like 1 hour interbvals in the
morning and the evening (nothing really goes on during the day and night -- we don't have clouds or
a sun yet) and it would be better than suddenly going from dark to light. Same should be done with
the fog-- except it COULD be changed more often, we could have the fog "roll in" (or out) rather
than just appear... maybe increase/decrease the fog every 5/10 minutes in the morning to add to the
effect

Also to add to the realism would be some cohearent backgrounds: All of a sudden going from a jpg of
the Earth (which by the way is obviously not the right size to use as a background anyway) to a jpg
of mountains -- did they grow overnight? Maybe a bad earthquake happened and shoved them up? I
would hate to live in a world with that mahny earthquakes! Anyway there should be a theme, and
stick with it. Make a simple image (the CORRECT SIZE) of mountains to use as a backdrop, then add
day/night/sunrise/sunset stuff to it as needed, only changing the color of the mountains
(light,dark, reddish, etc.) and of course maybe there could be a few extra backdrops for random
occurances like fog, etc., but still use the mountains

Or maybe an ocean in the distance? I don't care about that I was just using the mountains as an
example... put it in a desert if you want (actually that wouldn't work -- green grass in the
desert?)

Ooh ok now I am going crazy... in the summer the tall mountains would need just barely snowy peaks
while in the winter something more appropriate would be in order

OK OK I will stop now goodnight!!!!

Backdrop size

Hey all...

Does anyone know an approximate size that a background should be to move along with turning in a
world? thanks...

Actually come to think of it the windows are good the way they are -- ink blot testing! "What comes
to mind when you see the textures on those objects over there go all wacky?" ;-)

Good luck with the world!

vandalism?

Dec 2, 2000, 9:05pm
Hello........

I have a friend who built quite a bit of cool stuff in COFMeta, all around one central location. He
never covered any more land than he was using to build. One day when he went in and was going to
expand this area a bit and build something big (I think he said some kind of airport) he discovered
that someone completely surrounded his area. This surrounding goes on for some distance (we haven't
tried yet to measure if it is in fact 1 square kilometer however). When contacted about it, this
person (who will remain nameless until I get more information) replied that covering as much land as
possible "is the point of AW." Can someone who knowingly prevents someone from expand their area of
building, and then when asked to remove this block completely refuses, be condidered a vandal? If
so can anyone tell me how we might go about getting this "stolen property" taken care of?

thanks :-)

Person claiming they have a new "bot" for AW

Dec 3, 2000, 12:39am
....Especially do not trust tourists with a bot. As far as I know, a bot cannot log in as a tourist
(tourists dont have priv passes) (unless he has found some crack). Besides why would a tourist have
a bot with all these world rights features and stuff when he can't even access world rights
anywhere? If it seems wierd, dont trust it.

World Theft.. more to come...

Dec 13, 2000, 12:28am
Here's the deal -- I have known Just In for quite some time (at least a year -- we have spoken on
and off now and then) and he is not the person who would sink as low as to copy or steal objects
that were rightfully his. If he says he owned it -- trust me, he did.

Sadly, after hearing things from Just In himself, I disagree with my message as well.

Too bad that such a great person can become so greedy...

"GEL"

Dec 13, 2000, 1:44am
Some time ago, I remember that Ron Britvich ('Protagonist", original creator of AW) won a CY award,
I believe, for making AW in the first place. He was unable to receive the award at the time because
he was out somewhere working on a nice new rendering technlolgy (or something of the sort) called
"GEL". Anyone know whatever happened concerning this? Anyone know the location of the nice GEL
website that kinda has some news and stuff on it?

Thanks :-)

Obsession with houses

Dec 13, 2000, 2:02am
Hey...

I got around to checking out the latest updates on Eep's history page. Either Eep is worse than Al
Gore (we may not like Eep's attitude, but at least he does know how to think) or we REALLY need to
raise the 5.3 mil stated in Goober King's message "Proposal: The Dream Team". One thing that caught
my eye, however, is AWCI's obsession with dropping houses on people's heads...

(from http://www.tnlc.com/eep/aw/history.html -- near the bottom)
Telegram from Eep, sent Fri Dec 8, 2000 6:44 PM:
be gone, or I shall drop a house on you!

Some time ago, myself, Goober King, and some others were standing around AW's GZ. I don't remember
if it was JP or Rick, but whichever it was made himself present while Goob was on one of his
standard COF rants ;-) This person said "be gone goober king, or I shall drop a house on you!" I
used to actually have some screen shots but this was some time ago and they have long since
dissipated. Anyway, a few seconds later, there was a teleport.rwx right on Goob's position! lol If
I remember correctly he said something like "Who turned out the lights?" it was a laugh riot -- but
still its kind of interesting. Has anyone else received any house threats?

Oh and please disregard my last message -- Eep's page is quite useful and it had the GEL URL
thingie -- in case you want it it is www.urstudios.com.

Re: Patched Browser

Dec 13, 2000, 11:10pm
To elaborate slightly and remove the simpleness from Holistic's response ;-) Look at it as
destruction of property. You don't actually own the AW browser, but AWCI allows anyone who wants to
to use it. (Microsoft, for example, however, only allows people who pay them to use the software.)
Since AW owns it, changing it is like purposely wrecking a car which you borrowed from someone.

You must accept my apologies for that last post... I was not intending to
spam here -- simply trying to write a news reader lol ;-) Please ignore
that and this message.

Further information... I am using the aforementioned "Internet components"
to write a news reading client alternative. The components come with some
sample programs, and I was not expecting the "Post" button to actually post
a predefined message LOL!! I gotta look through the source for that.

Have a nice day and happy holiday season everyone :-)
