Uru Concepts: Relto

I felt my Relto was always missing something.  Oh right! A place to sleep and an office to work in!

I even put this idea into a Story Quest Journal I wrote.  Jahmen’s Journal Quests Series.

I throw the wall switch by the book case between it and my armoire.  My armoire slides back into the wall and reveals the stairs under neath leading down into the belly of my island mountain.  As I descend the stairs into the tunnel hallway that leads off to a lift.  The lift takes me down my office, kitchen and bed room, where I have great window views of the landscape far below the mist that surrounds my Relto Island in the sky.

Or how about this one;  I untie my sky vehicle from the wooden dock that hovers there for me.  I jump down into the seat and click onto the controls for a spin around my Relto before I fly on over to my nearby friends Relto.  I open my ki up to program in the invite permission to come over to her place. As I approach my Relto’s boundary I enter briefly into the void that links me across to her Relto. On my arriving she waves to me as I dock.

Or I come from my closet with my maintainers suit and link to Gira.  I jump down into the lava below and swim through the hidden opening just be low the. . . to the . .

Uru Concepts: Guild Pubs

Nexus Book: Nexus book placed in each Guild Pub.

Seating: Aside from the few seats surrounding the Guild Pubs, Kahlo Tavern style tables and chairs should be added to give more people places to sit and allow for a cozier more conversational setting to the location:

Guild Pub

Uru Concepts: Nexus GUI

Uru Live Nexus GUI Concept

As you can see I have introduced a few concepts.

Uru Concepts: Login GUI

So big changes to the Login GUI, basically the entire thing has been made darker, sleeker and minimal, without overloading with new extra features. This will basically allow for old players to get to their characters quickly and for new players to get through the GUI with relative ease.

Uru Concepts: Jalak Dador

Nexus Book: Needs to be added somewhere, perhaps in an alcove of sorts on one of the viewers stands.

Arena: The arena needs to have walkways leading from the playing field to the viewer stands, to literally make life easier for viewers instead of having to line up blocks to jump over to them.

Uru Concepts: Instancing

Instancing is reduced to two forms, public and private.

The Cleft (including descent), D’ni Ae’gura (Roof tops, Baron’s office, Kadish Gallery, Watchers Sanctuary, Guild Pubs and The Great Zero) and D’ni City Proper (Ashem’en, Kirel, Neighbourhoods) locations would all be public instances.

Uru Concepts: Cleft & Descent

It was the location that Ti’ana started a new life after the fall of D’ni, it was the birthplace and childhood home of Atrus, it was where one of the 2 openings to the tunnels leading to the D’ni cavern was situated.

It made sense for the players to start there, feeling “the call” to the middle of the desert to begin on a mysterious journey, picking up their Relto book and meeting Jeff Zandi. It all aided the beginnings set up by the DRC site and by Zandi’s ARG games, it all aided to the mystery that Uru ABM/Live was.

Whilyam’s Development Update 2011.08.09

Finally getting back into Age development. After trying to get PyPRP2 to work, I reverted back to 1 for now. I want to be able to make Ages and, while I’d like all the nice features of 2,  I’d rather have a working plugin. So, here’s a shot of what I’m working on:

PyPRP2 Installation Guide

Although PyPRP2 has been out for a while, and topics have been made explaining how to use it, no one said how to actually install it. To install PyPRP2:

  1. First, get the latest version of Blender here.
  2. Then get PyPRP2 here.
  3. Extract the file, and read the readme text file. It will tell you where to move the files.
  4. Load Blender.
  5. Under User Preferences/Add-ons/Import-Export, activate Plasma Development Environment.

That should set up PyPRP2 in your Blender install. Switch to a new document, then hit File/Save User Settings to prevent Blender from resetting to factory settings when you next load it.

You can learn about the many features of PyPRP2 here.

Can’t have it all…

It’s been a long time.
Hello, how are you?
I’ve been really busy, remembering how I’m a terrible dirty hacker who hates Uru and wants to ruin it for everyone.

It’s been a long time… albeit not as long as some people, who have been asking similar questions for far longer.

I’m tired of this. I’ve spent 7 years watching squabbles and arguments back and forth on every possible issue, and that’s not what I’m here for.
I’m here to develop, to create, to take ideas and turn them into something more. These past few years have really served to convince me that the Uru community is not the place to do that.
