New Open Source Virtual World Platform

2009-03-10

Sirikata is an BSD licensed open source platform for virtual worlds. We aim to provide a set of libraries and protocols which can be used to deploy a virtual world, as well as fully featured sample implementations of services for hosting and deploying these worlds. We are aiming for an alpha release in late Q1 2009 and this video teaser should give you some sense of what to expect.

Not a lot of information as yet, but you can check out their teaser video on Vimeo.

2007-02-01

Many thanks to Deutsch translator extraordinaire Paradise Tavoularis (SL) for translating the last four of my tutorials into German. I think there’s a burgeoning Second Life presence over in Germany, so hopefully this will help the new clothing designers get started. Can’t wait to see some German style!

The full set of tutorials in German:
Einführung: Wie mache ich Kleidung für Second Life?
Euer erstes Hemd in Second Life
Die Alphakanal-Fibel: Transparenz in Second Life
Ein Tattoo in Second Life erstellen
Wie man eine Schaufensterpuppe erstellt

Also, thanks again to Annalena Goldblatt who translated the Mannequin tutorial.
