Oh sure, now you want some idiots to be able to harass people by blocking
their movements?
Of course, there are a few nice looking female Av's I'd like to corner.

yes, i would like to see solid avs too now .. (and the ability to "shift"
through them if someone tries blocking us) , I suppose that with solid
avs various games of some sort using a solid av feature plus "shift" off
in a world could be created..., but how to make them solid? It's my
understanding that high polycount objects become solid, but for now, we'd
want to keep
the avs lower in polycount...

Solid Avatars could only be implemented in one way. Only if the Avatar
is static (not in motion, not changing it's coords). Multiple moving
Avatars with collision detect would make the lag from intense animation
and image updates seem like light speed! The system resources needed to
track the positions of two moving avatars as they intercept in real time
is not here yet. If I was one of the avatars and you were the other, the
location where we intercept would have to be the same on both our
systems. I'm not sure any two systems ever have the exact same coords
for the moving avatars at the same time. That's a question for Roland.

This is not even taking into account at all the 3D surface of the
avatars! I am assuming you mean any form of collision detection at all.
Like an invisible "pole" vertically through the center of each avatar.
The surfaces of the moving avatars could not be monitored in real time
with our current hardware.

BUT! I see no reason the browser could not check for an avatar that is
"Parked" and not let a moving avatar pass through the parked one. The
parked avatar could just appear as any other "*.RWX" object until it's
coords begin changing again.

Now... if you got that... What would we do with absolute GZ (0N 0W...)
where all the avatars stack up on each other as people enter the
worlds? I guess we could go back to the good old days when avatars fell
out of the sky. Then they could just stack up head to toe into the
heavens. That would work. Look sort of funny on popular worlds!
Hehehehe

[View Quote] Hey, that might get people to actually move, rather than stand there
like some Indian goddess and look gross.
