RECORDINGS 

Session 1 (Thu)

http://lancelot.adobeconnect.com/p6a81f3d0dw/ (1h 4min) 

Hazel's session on how to import mesh objects into Second Life starting with a bunny, explaining LOD and physics and climaxing with the Trojan RabbitI started the recording a bit late and missed everyone filling in questions about payment info etc. before being able to get the upload menu for objects.


Session 2 (Sun)

http://lancelot.adobeconnect.com/p3zmqr7ft0f/  (1h 43min)

Randall's scavenger hunt session. For details see below. 

 

Learn how to upload suitable 3D objects.

The file format of 3D objects will be discussed and the method by which Second Life imports them. Objects can be created, purchased or found in extensive libraries - and there are many different programs that will convert them for use in Second Life.

We hope to find the most suitable program for you ~ and your computer's ~ capabilities (plus the Trojan Rabbit).

 

Scavenger hunts, which some may know as quests, treasure hunts or rallies involve searching, usually in teams, for widely scattered, hidden   objects. Clues are normally provided. The team to locate all objects in the shortest time is usually awarded a prize! In the context of Village 2016, along with fun of the game, we shall be especially attentive to the language that the activity generates between participants.
