Terrain on tap – OpenSim on deck

There’s some progress on a couple of project fronts.  I’ve started assembling some USGS terrain for a 1:10 scale Level 1 build that could involve more OpenSim regions than I’ve ever stood up on one machine before.  Snapshot of progress is here, with a goal of 304 OpenSim regions for the model.  I expect that the OpenSim server will be re-imaged and a new build attempted in the next couple of weeks.

The site design for the Marin Civic Center build in Second Life Stanford region is also moving along with its target 1/8 region (two SL acres) based on RL terrain and building at 1:1 scale Level 3 build.  Progress sketch below:

A bit more can be reviewed by looking at the PDF of the same map here.cc_topo_20090211

Finally, a sky tag has been added to the space above the build. It is visible as a streak to anyone who visits SLURL.com by a mouse roll.  The Stanford region now has a large “MARIN” visible in its upper reach, squarely in the middle of the ancient Second Life Outlands.
