That was not my point. I said nothing about actually using 3D
animation to shoot the scenes, but using the concept as a premise for
the technology which made possible the holodeck (which would not be
called the holodeck in such a case). What would be the point in
using something that would look like 3D animation instead of fulfilling
the effect of creating an imaginary world with no discernible
differences from reality? Hence, the use of real actors and
actresses.

Wow, what a change from a few years ago!!!! I suggests the exact same thing
about 2 and a half years ago and nobody liked it at all. I got so many negative
replies that I felt like crawling into a hole and hiding for even suggesting it.

Yes, I think it is an awesome idea!!! Bring it on, Roland.

If you are worried about uploading, find a different web page provider.
There are dozens of free ones and many of them have online editors so you don't
have to even bother uploading the page after making changes, unless you are
adding a new image or other file, of course.

A good review of free web page providers is at:

The cost was not my main point. My main point was that there are many, many,
many web page provider services out there and many of them have ONLINE editors
where re-uploading html pages is unnecessary and a waste of time.

I don't understand your fixation with versions. It is a web page, not a
program. It is unnecessary to number the lists. Just add an ID number to
each wish on the list and allow people to track the progress of the list as it
is revised. Besides, new versions would make old versions obsolete, so why
keep the old versions around for reference?

Jan 27, 1999, 3:32pm
But, why bother with "versions"?

Just make one list and change it when necessary. Chances are that no one
will bother keeping up with what version is out, anyway.

I am sure (?) that Eep knows that, but the problem here is that Rolu is treating an HTML list as though it were a program rather
than a list that can be revised with out having to release a new "version"

Good suggestion!!! However, you might want to get in line. That has
been a suggestion for quite a while now. Hopefully, if the new company
is good on their word, they might hire some new programmers to put in some
of those frills we have been demanding.

old "wishes" for Rolu's list

Feb 7, 1999, 5:56pm
I have a wish that I almost did not want to post because I thought it
might be redundant given the fact that we have an animate command
already.

The wish I have is a command will alternate the name of the object, thus
causing the object to change into something else. This could be handy
because you would not have to have understanding of SDK or bots. Also,
it would prevent the BI from showing up anymore because all the objects
not being used will not actually be there, unlike with the visible off
command where it is still occupying the same space, but is just
"off". The animations could be far more complex than they are
currently.

Why not use OpenGL instead of direct 3d, or have better Direct3D support

Maybe, if they ever get another programmer, more attention could be placed
on this task. I saw a page on their web site advertising programming
positions.

Re: awmonopoly has been shut down

May 9, 2000, 11:47am
[My news reader will not allow me to post a reply to the thread, so I am
forced to start another thread.]

A local group of college kids made a game called Triopoly based on Monopoly
and have made quite a success at it....

I think it is much, much better than monopoly

I am glad that my wish was granted after so long, but at the beginning I
suggested that the game be taylored around AW, rather than the traditional
Monopoly board game. This would give you a legal edge, because there
are many Monopoly look alikes that Hasbro has been unable to prevent their
being marketed.

Please give my idea some thought...I think an original spin to the old game
will be fun and refreshing.

Re: awmonopoly has been shut down

YES!!!

That is exactly the kind of game I had envisioned!

That is what I was going to say in my reply.

Also, whoever bought them out would probably have the capital and resources

Custom Monopoly Board

Jun 29, 2000, 8:27pm
I have the new Monopoly CD-ROM game with custom gameboard editor. I am
making an AW custom board for my own use and for trading with other Monopoly
users. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for good locations or
worlds. I prefer classic AW sites and well known and well established
communities and locations.

Any help will be appreciated. However, I cannot guarantee that all
suggestions will be accepted because my own personal tastes and biases will
rule in the end.

So far, I have screenshots of Colony Alpha, AWGate, Metatropolis, Atlantis,
Mars, and Yellowstone.
