VWER Auditorium Build

This week the BG Second Life team had an emergency build project that fell to me to finish. The Virtual Worlds Educators Roundtable (VWER) is a group of 80-100 educators and others who meet in Second Life. This group is moving to BGSU’s virtual campus, and a space is currently being constructed for their meetings and round table discussions. The first phase of this construction was to construct an auditorium for the group presentations. This task fell to me the night before a meeting with a VWER representative, so it had to be completed pretty quickly. We decided to use the space previously used to model faculty offices for the VWER build.


When I took over the build, there was a floor and some chairs placed, with a presentation screen at the front of the space.

The first step in this build was to create rows of seats for guests. I used the seats supplied and created rows that radiated from the center. The goal was to have enough seating for 80-100 guests.

After the first two sections of seats were built, I turned my attention to the open spaces around the perimeter of the space. This space had been left open and terraformed to make the space descend into the floor, but now I needed a way to connect the various walkways and asiles with the main seating. To address this issue, I began by constructing some stairs on either side of the media viewer.

Once the stairs were completed and joined to the floor, I put in a side asile on the side of the main seating area.

After the asile was built, I moved the wall on the other side of the space inwards. I did this for two reasons: First, I wanted to make the seating space more symmetrical and avoid a large open space on the other side. Second, I wanted to move the wall to expand the hallway on the other side. We’re still not sure exactly what this space will be used for, but it was a bit narrow to begin with and is now much more open and usable.

With the wall moved, I now had a good idea of how the space in the main seating area could be built. First, I made another side asile to match the one on the other side.

The first place that needed attention was where the side asiles connected the front stairs and the radial asiles. I needed a way to fill in this space and add some architectural elements to the space. I started by placing some triangular prims in the space to fill it in.

On top of these prims, I added tall pillars. These pillars helped to divide the space into a seating and presentation area and the asiles in which avatars could move.

Now that the seating area was clearly defined, I added additional chairs on either side of the radial asiles. The final seating area can hold around 105 guests.

Once the seating area was complete, I decided to work on the walkway on the second level of the space. This walkway goes around the inside of the glass at the front of the VWER space, and can be accessed via ramps by the entrance of the structure. In the future, we may add a second level to this presentation space, so I wanted to make sure that the walkway was integrated with the rest of the architecture. I decided to continue the walkway into the side hallway and added some stairs so that it would be accessible from either side of the seating area.

Once the walkway and stairs were completed, the VWER presentation space was essentially complete.

In the next week I’ll be working on the other half of the VWER space, which is located at the other end of the building. This will have stadium seating and will house the actual “round table” used for discussions.

    Several dozen higher education reporters from around the nation gathered Friday and Saturday in the serenely
    quiet coastal city of St. Petersburg (Motto: Zzzzzzzzzzzzz.) to discuss academia, the challenges
    it faces and how to convert those challenges into high impact
    journalism. The high point, surely, was the luncheon talk by Inside Higher
    Ed’s Scott Jaschik, who spent a half hour reciting a list of superb story ideas his publication had covered and most everyone else’s had not..
    Where some people trip up is the assumption that this isn’t allowed and should be ignored or suppressed.
    It seems to me you’re fully conscious of this possibility and accept that uncertainty may
    be a fact for you right now. I think this puts you in a
    really good position to be able to explain your feelings to
    potential partners..

    gay sex toys I loved the color because everything neon is awesome in my book.
    When I opened the package, the first thought was “wow, I love this color!” and the second was
    that the softness was great. I did notice that the material started to fray apart
    where the back bow is after being worn a few times and washed, even though I never put these in the washer and
    only hand washed and hung to dry.. A lot of good points have been made
    here about privacy, and social/legal concerns regarding toys.
    I can see myself presenting my child with a sex toy for his/her Nth birthday, but I like the idea of providing whatever information they
    want to know. I didn buy any toys until I was over 21, but it would have been nice to have had one or
    two things during college instead of only near the end of college
    (or anytime after high school). gay sex toys

    Adult Toys For many of us it can feel scary or awkward. I usually only
    express my interest in a new person if I feel pretty comfortable.

    (If I’m flat out terrified, I find it’s a good idea to hold off
    taking action, check in with myself about why I’m so freaked, and
    examine if this is a safe person to share my
    feelings with.) For queer people in a heterosexist
    society, telling someone that you like them can carry additional anxieties..
    Ok, I don’t mean abandon your shopping cart in real life.
    I’m in the field of e commerce, and one thing that I’ve learned is that when you put a product in your shopping cart, it launches a campaign on most reputable

    male sex toys I use coconut oil a lot (and the stuff I buy has no smell,
    is organic and cheap compared to a lot of lubes plus
    it works great as a moisturizer and a bath oil). It fine for silicone, metal,
    plastic, glass, wood and elastomer/med toys. Not sure about the
    rest since I rarely use any other materials anymore. Well as I guy I can tell
    you that I don like hair on my body that much. Armpit hair kinda adds to the stink and when you put on deodorant it can clump on the hair
    and it looks disgusting. As for my pubes I don shave it but definitely keep it trimmed
    with a trimmer, it looks nicer I think, plus and maybe
    it just me but I feel that when my pubes grow out it is
    just smellier, maybe the ladies can help me out on this one seeing as they are the ones who have to stick their noses in it.

    Adult Toys And, then, in the mail, I found a little box,
    and in that box was a DVD that I’d ordered a few weeks before.
    It was Tristan Taormino’s Expert Guide to Oral Sex
    Fellatio. It seemed like a sign, you know?
    So I put it in the DVD player and I watched it.. As many of us may be used to (but then neither does much of Orthodox
    Judaism or Catholocism, or for that matter, the current President of the United States and
    most of his administration). But head covering, for men and women both, isn’t
    anything new or outrageous, and it spans across many, many cultures.

    the increase in GPU and RAM prices, especially on the mid range
    segment. So it not unusual now to find better deals with prebuilts.

    For $800 you can easily build/buy a PC that will
    run PUBG at 60FPS nearly without issues (though PUBG is really far from a good and reliable metrics
    to use, because of how unoptimized it is, and how it can run poorly even on the most high
    end machines).. I’m with Beppie on this one. I’m 17, and
    when I look at pictures of me from just a year ago, I think
    I look SO much different. But when I look closely, there aren’t that many differences between the 16 year old me and the 17 year old me.

    sex toys I 23 (the generation who apparently hates using
    china) and I own Chinaware. I think the reason why it partially irrelevant
    in this day age is because most people my age can afford the proper housing required
    to “formally entertain” people (blame student loan debt, capitalism, the economy.) I was
    gifted my set of China after the death of my grandmother,
    so I didn obtain it in the traditional way either. I don think I ever use it mainly because I don like having the responsibility of cooking for a bunch of people, but also because (like I said)
    it irrelevant to my current living circumstance. sex toys

    I’m very confused. He said in comments that his attractions make

    You approach, ask if you can provide your phone number,

    Does it work? Maybe, maybe not. An initial public offering can bring great returns and great losses and this quarter was
    no different. Tech companies that went public saw a gain in their

    never been charged with rape or sexual assault, later

    They’ll ask her a range of questions which she will IGNORE – since she
    can’t and doesn’t want to reply to everyone. The
    app also asks questions to help you match your interests with better connections, which can be a plus for serious relationship seekers.
    At the end of the day, I have friends who’ve had the perfect match on CMB,
    but it isn’t my favorite app. Whether to keep in touch along with friends and family across the world
    or to attach with a stranger, having the visual always makes discussions a lot more
    interesting. Knowing very little about a person can also make initial messaging a lot more challenging.

    Great deals of amateur women, classic video clips, along with premium
    material and live webcams for people who like connecting
    with an additional person throughout sexual satisfaction. That said, I’ve never met a single person who
    actually uses the app. Remarkably, everyone we met
    seemed relaxed — and even grateful to be off-line.
    I have friends who’ve met spouses through OkCupid.
    Which is great if you trust the judgment of
    your friends and family.
