I did content creation for my MUV assignment 3. I built a relaxing japanese themed garden. I have a signpost welcoming avatars to my garden. It is touchable, and when touched, gives the avatar a note-card and an external link to this blog. The signpost also uses a sensor script to prompt first time visitors to touch the signpost.My build uses sliding doors (pivoting doors was too complicated!) to allow avatars into the hot tub area and the windowless relaxation room. I used quite a few textures and all the water prims and some of the plant prims are phantom to create a more realistic experience.
The hot tub uses a colour changing script on the water. It also uses a particle effect to simulate steam rising from the hot tub. The hot tub seats 4 and has a specific ‘hottub’ annimation. There are quite a few different animations used in my garden. They are all either yoga or relaxation related.I didn’t have many issues with my content creation besides silly scripting errors or going over the 300 Prim limit (Isa suggested that I did not need to use all the space given to me just because it was there, so I cut the build size down and minimised my land impact)The MUV content creation was in the same semester as my PRJ research paper. I felt that I had to prioritize PRJ because the course takes 450 hours, and when I am in second life I tend to lose all concept of time.Overall I really enjoyed the process and when I have spare time in the future might invest in a building area of my own to play around in. The class was fun and informative and I even enjoyed the scripting part (though I will deny this IRL)
