[View Quote] I personally thought the new browser updates were great. The new browser
look and feel are wonderful. Haven't yet been able to test streaming,
but as soon as my phone company gets to installing a PORT for my ADSL
access here, I'll be sure to test it all out.

So you don't want patches and bug fixes? Which is most important? I
would have thought patches and bug fixes to be #1 on anybodies priority
list.

The fee for ActiveWorlds is not much to ask for. ActiveWorlds will
always remain *ActiveWorlds*. You talk as if you want ActiveWorlds to
completely change and become something else other than *ActiveWorlds*.

I went to There Inc. for a while and thought "Wow, wonderful graphics
and wonderful features" - but got sick of it quite quickly. I mean, the
new building features, the voice chat and avatar customization and
animation is great, but AW remains AW. AW called me back after some time
for its originality and its community. AW is much more customizable for
the user, although custom avatars are not yet here, if you own your own
world, your limits of customization are pretty much endless.

ActiveWorlds has bots, scripting (in bots), .rwx models, textures and
more textures. Thanks to the community here in ActiveWorlds. And you can
use many of these things at no extra cost (except those that dedicate
their modeling skills to a business ;o))

If you mean updates like 3d engine and physics engines, then yes, I will
agree. I believe we were looking into that Quake engine a while ago, but
even now that is outdated. Wouldn't mind seeing physics like in Half
Life 2, Far Cry and Doom III now would we? But what are the costs of
such things?
Do you think they could afford such licenses with the current $6.95
monthly fee from every citizen?

You should have made this post private to AWI then, to their e-mail. Not
made it public by posting in a public Newsgroup :o)

Tourist Building off in AW

Oct 11, 2004, 4:08pm
[View Quote] Tough one that. My opinion is that it doesn't deter tourists. It's more
of an incentive to register if anything.

If I was building and I invited my tourist friend over to my home and he
asked why he couldn't build with you or next to you, you can simply
reply with "Oh, sorry dude... I forgot that building here is restricted
to registered users. Just another reason why you should register and
join me here in AW."

DreamCty World Community Coming Soon!

Sep 8, 2005, 10:31pm
Hello all,

Some of you may remember me from a while back. Well, I have returned!

I am in the process of setting up a community website for my business
DreamCities.net (http://dreamcities.net) and am wishing to start up
the world DreamCty which is ready to go, I just need volunteers to run
it and get it going.

The world will start off as a P-40 size world with 5 simultaneous
users and grow as needed, funded by DreamCities.net.

I need to fill the following positions. Descriptions of each can be
found on each link I am providing.

o CareTaker http://community.dreamcities.net/apply_caretaker.html
o Architect http://community.dreamcities.net/apply_architect.html
o Object Designer http://community.dreamcities.net/apply_objects.html
o Avatar Designer http://community.dreamcities.net/apply_avatars.html
o OP Manager http://community.dreamcities.net/apply_op.html
o Bot Scripter http://community.dreamcities.net/apply_bots.html
o Security Team http://community.dreamcities.net/apply_security.html
o Support Team http://community.dreamcities.net/apply_support.html

You can view our community website at http://community.dreamcities.net

This world will be a building community world. Much like the cities
and towns you see within AW World, but this will be one giant city and
community in its own world.

We are going to try something different with this world, and hopefully
it'll work.

Please show your support :o)

Regards,
Anduin (317281)

Hello Baro,

My apologies, thank you for pointing that out. I've updated that
portion of text.

I started charging $9.95 setup due to too many visitors signing up
more than one account, setting up spam/scam sites, porn sites and what
not.

The only way (besides spending all day monitoring free signup's) that
I could cut the rubbish out was to set that one off fee. Scammers
don't seem to like paying to make money.

My largest personal plan costs $25.00 a month for 1.5gb Space and 20gb
Monthly Bandwidth. http://business.dreamcities.net/personal.html

Business plans start at $10.70 a month for 100mb space with 10gig
bandwidth to $188 a month for 4gb space and 180gb Bandwidth. Our
business plans come with many more features however.

No, I do not host on personal computers sitting around at home. This

I am using iinet.net.au but am using a Draytek Wireless Router.

Try setting the DMZ Host settings to point to your PC. That way all
ports are automatically forwarded to your PC no matter what.

Just be sure to use a software firewall on your PC instead ;o)

Works fine here, so it's not iinet.

May I have a crack at who you are?

Judging by your headers in private mail as well as newsgroup postings
I've come to the conclusion you may be 'Arcanum'.

Guys, would you QUIT it already. The forums here aren't for discussion
about ONE person but about the community in general.

If only recently, someone must have uploaded an infected version of
Skype to their servers; whether an insider or not is a different

I am and have been using Skype for some time now, no warnings.

Ah yes. I have the F Lock button too. Gets annoying sometimes when
using ActiveWorlds while attempting to display the cell grid using F10
(instead it will open and close the built-in web browser window).

Is there a way to make the F Lock key automatically go on upon

GTA models?

Nov 12, 2005, 2:58am
[View Quote] >hey, posting this for Bowen:
>
[View Quote] Ok, let's expand on this.

What if you were developing a free game for people to play with the
use of Rockstars models?

Would they then not be losing money, although you are making the game
for free use?

And, how much money did they have to spend to get those particular
models created for them, for use within the game?

Yes, either way is a loss of money to them and is copyright
infringement; even if the use is not for profit.

You must have express permission to use their models in your 3D world
in writing, before doing so or you are indeed liable.
