What is Decentraland? It is a new virtual world, where you can socialize and make money. Users can build, buy, and sell land with a cryptocurrency called MANA. My friends kept asking me if Decentraland is similar to Second Life or will be better than Second Life, and the answer it… I don’t know. We’ll find out!
Not long ago, I bought an Oculus Quest and have been diving into the world of virtual reality. Doing everything from establishing a boxing practice routine with Thrill of the Fight, to exploring different maps in VRChat, there’s been a ton of things to see and do!
There are a few things I’d like to show you, though, just to bring home the point of how lovely and how immersive virtual reality can be.
Take a deep breath. Bakes on Mesh arrived on the grid 6 months ago, so you’ve either had a chance to play around with it or you’ve completely ignored it – until now. Go back and read the Bakes on Mesh tutorial part I, by Aemeth and part II by me. Then ignore everything you’ve learned because LeLutka is doing it differently than the existing workaround.
LeLutka just released two new mesh heads, Erin and Nova, featuring a brand new HUD with tons of cool new customization features and new high-definition applier layers, so most of your existing appliers will not work. I don’t really want to get into all of the changes, but from my brief glance at the heads, I foresee massive confusion on the grid.
Hello from Bellisseria South, the long-awaited Victorians have now been claimed by thousands of happy new homeowners. During the Linden Reveal 3 weeks ago, the southern addition to the continent was not public access, so we didn’t get to see the actual regions until the launch on December 16th.
Hello from the NYC Christmas sim*! This place is GORGEOUS. It took a million years to rez, but it was worth it.
*Before Bellisseria, people called them sims. Half sim, full sim, quarter sim, etc. Then Patch Linden corrected everyone and said that a sim is actually called a region. So now some people started calling them region. I’ll use both words on my blog, depending on the sentence. For some reason, sim just flows here.
First things first, when I go to virtual NYC, I get a hot dog. Here I am buying a hot dog from a mesh person, and standing next to another mesh person. I actually like them here, they’re dressed appropriately and every mesh person has a role on the sim. Elsewhere in SL, they’re creepy.
