A gifted sim for Yxes

December 16, 2009


This evening, I listened to the latest Podmafia episode 119 – The sim owners guide to the galaxy. On the episode, Yxes Delacroix explained how it would be such a great gift to have a sim given to her. I can’t afford to hand out regions as they cost one thousand dollars in setup fees, and an additional two hundred and ninety nine dollars for the first months service charge. I went with the next best thing. I still had an old panarama that I created from the opening day of Los Arboles. Banana Stein purchased this sim long ago, and both Yxes and Banana moved over there from Bbang. I placed the panarama on the inside and adjusted the particle snowflakes that I had put in it earlier. The podcast also had some comments about snow in virtual environments, so I figured it was a nice touch. After handing it to Yxes, she was happy to receive the gift. It has a bit of history relevant to her, and solves her wish to have a sim for Christmas. Well … it is a simulatation of a simulator.

Can you hear me now?

December 15, 2009


I found a service called Odiogo that allows me to provide audio versions of my blog posts. Odiogo offers this as a free service. I’m trying it out for now. It inserts a brief intro at the beginning of each post before it reads the information. It is synthesized, so it sounds a bit computerized. Check out the web interface or an RSS link for a podcast.

The Dreamers Thread

November 9, 2009


PhoebeAnn Theas was in the write-in tonight for the NaNoWriMo. She asked if I was the same Dedric from two years ago. Apparently it turns out that I was an inspiration for one of her novels that is also a podcast. Check it out, and look for me in episode 4. Apparently she thinks the guy who did my voice is brilliant. The Dreamer’s Thread – A podiobook by Starla Huchton.

Building a ships bridge

June 14, 2009


I’m gathering up some ideas for one of my older domains. Long before I heard of second life, i always wanted to make my own web-based MMORPG. I had many ideas, and interesting experiments to boot, but none of them really made it anywhere. I think I’m going to start building up an idea founded on space exploration. The general idea is to make a podcast discovering new songs (mainly through podshow at first), but some how tieing in the theme with a game simulation of building up a brighter world of your own. Perhaps I’m trying too many things at once. Anyways, here is a mockup of a space ship bridge.
