    Default Winding Down

    Stan,
    You know this is what I do to wind down the day - it keeps me in touch with what happens outside my patch here, and organizes some thoughts - but I just looked at the clock and its time to call it quits - probably wake up in a bit anyway.
    Regards all - Rob

    Actually, do you think the owners of Second Life would rent / lease the engine code?

    Marc

    The answer to that is yes... Several of the engines are actually limited or fully open source.

    I didn't know that! Have you thought about putting something like that together? You mentioned that you had a commitment to do something along those lines at your school.

    They had commented (the SL folks) that some parts of the game would be made open source, if I recall (BBC story I saw a couple of weeks back). There may also be some open source stuff out there as well that would work. Not sure, because I don't mess with the online stuff at all.

    It looks like Linden Labs (second life developers) have open sourced the client software (http://lindenlab.com/press/releases/01_08_07). There are a lot of resources about developing for the tool here (http://secondlife.com/developers/)

    ETA: I emailed their development team and asked if they'd ever even considered this type of application.

    Interesting. I was checking out the price of islands, and it certainly isn't prohibitive .
