Metaverse Tour @ Brantley No. 3 Shaft

Today I was fortunate to have the Metaverse Tour Group stop by the Brantley No. 3 Shaft storybuild to take a look around.   The tours are a great way to check permissions (particularly when hyper-gridding explorers visit), monitor resources for whatever scripts need to run simultaneously, and keep up with the pesky non-player characters (NPC's) that are so important for good interactivity, but can cause problems anytime, and especially during visits by representative avatars (real people).

While most of the server worries I had did not happen.  The interactivity went surprisingly well, and the bullet physics were not problem at all, I still need to find a way to offer up hyper grid visitors free gifts in world and on the spot.   It is a difficult challenge for me.  After nearly two years of trying to figure out a way to give away a nice HUD to use with a flying machine, there is still reasonable way to do it.  Back to the drawing board for that one.

By the time some of the guests return to go through another round of puzzles, mini-games and detours (red herrings), I hope to have the final act of the storybuild done.  Then I can go on to the Garden Poems Build and a new Sumerian build that I plan to share with another builder.  Thank goodness for shared interests and passions for antiquity.

Brantley No. 3 Shaft is a Myst/Uru Explorer Tale, Devokan Trust Storybuild, Underwritten by Lakewater Educational Projects and  Build & Story by Ruby O'Degee (a Fictive)
