ChinRey Posted March 23, 2019 Share Posted March 23, 2019 I'm posting this in the General forum because although it's about a build, it's not really for builders only. I'm also posting it a bit too early. I was going to present a finished work, not jsut a concept, and I still have plants and houses and lot of other stuff to add and I'm not quite happy with the ground textures yet either. But it should be enough to give people with a little bit of imagination an idea what I have in mind. This project started with the old slogan "Your World, Your Imagination". I thought, what if it really had been my world and my imagination - what would I have made out of it? This is one of the things I might have made. Explorers want space, they want landscapes to discover and they want roads to travel on. Home owners want privacy. 64 1024 m2 parcels spread across a 4x4 opensim variregion (that's 16 SL sims for those not familiar with opensim) should give both groups all they want. (This project is really supposed to be nine such sims but I've only done the two most difficult ones so far. Once they are finished, the other seven should be quite easy.) Then I realized there are no technical reasons why something similar couldn't be done in SL too. We don't have variregions here of course, but we do have homesteads. Think of the Horizon sims (or the SSP ones now). 24 double prim 1024 m2 parcel crammed into each sim. Replace each of those sims with four homesteads, each with six quadruple prim 1024's et voila. Same server load, less client side lag, more prims to the people, more privacy to the residents and room for some lovely landscape for everybody to enjoy. It's a win-win situation if ever there was one. It's not going to happen of course, for a ton of reasons. But oh well, I build for my own enjoyment and for the challenge so it doesn't bother me too much. And at least I can show off some pictures. Here's what I have so far (those ugly bright green squares mark the house parcels in case somebdy wonder). I may have verdone the hairpin roads a bit but it is a a very curvy landscape so they're hard to avoid. I want to give the residents as many options as possible and I thought maybe there are people who actualy prefer to live by a rler-straight road across a pancake flat landscape. Got that too! 12 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
