everywhere in AWGate around Christmas.
It was so coooooool. :) Can we have it again? Maybe for a week or 2 this
time.

Thanks,
Kenneth

[View Quote] Wonderful and warm? How about stinkin' hot. that's a good thing though,
that 5.5% alcohol goes down well in that 40+ Celsius temperature.

lol I went to Australia last (summer for the US -- winter for them) and it
was about 21°C and they were all complaining it was cold and I was walking
around in short sleeves and shorts. Was pretty funny though. They were like
wait untill the summer here it gets to be about 40+ and I'm like ........ it
gets to be about 40+ where I live during the summer too... Australia is
soooooooo uber. I loved it a lot. It looks cool, the people are great, and
Sydney is like... the cleanest city I've ever been to. (Besides Montreal,
Canada)

Anyways I went a little off topic.

I liked the gate last year with the snow. It's a cool change from the same
old gate. If they're not going to make it snow, at least re-make the gate to
a christmassy theme of some sort.

Yes, very pretty, but - MAN! - what a DL for the newbies!!!!
and for those without cable. yikes

I remember last year's Halloween thunder and lightning storm. THAT was
CooL.

I wouldn't mind a VR snow storm in The Gate. I'm getting very tired of the
real stuff.

[View Quote] Hello Tart Sugar,

What a download? Snow would take one object and one texture, less than
100k. Even on dial up that's a small download.

actually, no O_O you'd need seperate textures and masks for every diffrent
object. and masks are usualy pretty big O_O plus, some of the odd objects
thrown around for the christmas/snowwy effect O_O
either that, or it's gonna be one tacky looking winter.

And then I question - what's the big hurry?
So you download an extra minute longer, big deal :P

if you think mask are pretty big, you are doing something wrong :(
Masks are usually grayscale if you want soft edges, or b&w (1 bit) if you
don't mind some jaggies.
Then they are zipped and should be in the 10k range or less, usually 2 or 3k

O_O ya but they're .bmps, so they're alot bigger then the textures. and
masks where it's either black or white aren't really that great. especially
if you wanna create an ice/frost effect, so the 1 bit ones won't cut it O_O

wait actually O_O never took into account the zipping. never really noticed
how much smaller all masks are after zipping, until now O_O should pay more
attention i guess.

ZIP will crush a set of repeated bytes such as 255 255 255 255 255 255 255
255 255 255 255 255 x 100 or so down to near nothing.

skiing.. which you can do, as well as surfing, both on the same day, in Los
Angeles area)

Snow in AWGate at Christmas would be nice. But keep the snow in the Gate and
don't spread it to AW world like they did once before! I and others build
landscapes that are tropical(summer) in nature(flowers, trees, etc), to have
a snowy mountain background clashes. We in the North (USA) who recieve snow
and cold in Winter go to AW to escape it! If we want to build snowy scenes
we can always do that with the building objects or go to a world like Winter
to build in snow. But a nice Holiday snowfall in the AWGate would be nice.
And having a slow computer(ancient one) myself I can share it might take a
little time to download but so does downloading the gate if you dumped your
cache too. :)
