2010.03.17 07:00 - Building, Scripting, Working Together


    The Guardian for this meeting was Bleu Oleander. The comments are by Bleu Oleander.


    Yakuzza Lethecus: morning bleu
    Bleu Oleander: hey Yaku!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i just arrived home, so i´ll be afk for a few minutes
    Bleu Oleander: np
    Yakuzza Lethecus: just logged on right away
    Bleu Oleander: i'm just waking up!

    Yakuzza Lethecus: hmm, i was thinking if i should just remain silent or not
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i often come here to just hear something different, but don´t even feel like sharing

    Bleu Oleander: that would certainly be easy for me to edit and post .... ha!
    Yakuzza Lethecus: yes :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: it´s just that i don´t have a specific topic in mind
    Bleu Oleander: maybe it's that kind of session
    Yakuzza Lethecus: fine with me :)
    Bleu Oleander: anything happen at some of the sessions I missed this week?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: we´ve been together in most sessions i believe
    Yakuzza Lethecus: can´t remember one without you
    Bleu Oleander: :)
    Bleu Oleander: so let's try to be silent for 15 minutes or so and see how it feels .....
    Bleu Oleander: stretch the 90sec pause and see how it feels ....


    Liza joins Yakuzza and me as we continue our stretch of silence .... PaB-031710.jpg

    Bleu Oleander: hey Liza
    Liza Deischer: its crowdy here :-)
    Bleu Oleander: it's a quiet morning here
    Liza Deischer: hi
    Bleu Oleander: how's your project going?
    Liza Deischer: almost finished, at least my part

    (am very curious to see Liza's project that she's been working on ....)

    Liza Deischer: and yours?
    Bleu Oleander: still developing
    Bleu Oleander: you'll have to come see later
    Bleu Oleander: I really like building

    (I love being a new builder in SL and creating virtual art .... it's been causing me to spend much more time in SL and in doing so has enabled me to meet new friends and get to know the PaB participants better .... been having a lot of fun!)

    Liza Deischer: yes, I haven't had the time
    Bleu Oleander: but i'm just learning
    Liza Deischer: yes
    Bleu Oleander: so not really building yet ... more like arranging
    Liza Deischer: you told me so?
    Liza Deischer: you need some help?
    Bleu Oleander: building?
    Yakuzza Lethecus: hey, liza
    Liza Deischer: yes
    Liza Deischer: hey Yaku
    Bleu Oleander: I'm going through the Tower of primatives
    Bleu Oleander: very helpful
    Liza Deischer: soon, I've got a little time on my hands
    Bleu Oleander: oh great
    Bleu Oleander: I don't know anything about scripting
    Bleu Oleander: do you?
    Liza Deischer: me neither
    Liza Deischer: but, I do know persons who do
    Liza Deischer: and like to do it for fun
    Liza Deischer: if it is something that is new to them
    Bleu Oleander: rezzing and textures i'm learning, scripting not so much
    Liza Deischer: good sl-friends of mine
    Liza Deischer: well, I bought something to learn someting about it
    Liza Deischer: but at the moment I can't
    Bleu Oleander: I did figure out how to script an object to give out a note card
    Bleu Oleander: that's as far as i got :)
    Liza Deischer: okay, well I use scripts and alter them
    Liza Deischer: but I never made one, so
    Liza Deischer: your ahead of me :-)
    Bleu Oleander: not by much! hehe
    Liza Deischer: still :-)
    Liza Deischer: I mean, I can't learn you anything if it comes to that

    (possible ideas for a PaB special session ...)

    Bleu Oleander: maybe we should have the PaB building experts do a session for all of us
    Liza Deischer: and building is also complecated
    Liza Deischer: but I have some experience in doing that
    Liza Deischer: in building I mean
    Bleu Oleander: so maybe you can help me there
    Liza Deischer: hmmmm, good idea
    Liza Deischer: but I think, especially scripting, is something that takes time
    Bleu Oleander: we can share our expertise
    Liza Deischer: yes


    Liza Deischer: I would like to learn
    Liza Deischer: and to share any experience I've got
    Bleu Oleander: I know Wol said she knew scripting and I know Storm does so maybe we could have a session for those that are interested
    Liza Deischer: They are both very busy at the moment
    Bleu Oleander: I think building enhances the SL experience
    Bleu Oleander: special environments add a lot
    Bleu Oleander: especially environments that you help build
    Bleu Oleander: brings peeps together in another way
    Bleu Oleander: that's fun too
    Liza Deischer: true, but most people who can do anything, are most of the time the most busy ones
    Bleu Oleander: that's true
    Liza Deischer: And they already know the experience of building and scripting
    Liza Deischer: you need to find someone in an sl-dip :-)
    Liza Deischer: who likes to pick up something that sounds like fun
    Liza Deischer: and have no problem in sharing experiences
    Liza Deischer: hard to find, I'm afraid

    (possible idea for a group project ....)

    Bleu Oleander: I wonder if we all could participate in a group creation of an art piece that would serve the purpose of learning and also creating a work of art
    Liza Deischer: would be fun
    Bleu Oleander: i.e. in our common areas
    Yakuzza Lethecus remembers to be dragged into building art in my spanish class :P
    Bleu Oleander: everyone could add to the piece and share what they know
    Bleu Oleander: how was that Yaku?
    Bleu Oleander: didn't work?
    Liza Deischer: I don't think it is going to be easy, because working together in constructing something
    Liza Deischer: is not easy in sl
    Liza Deischer: as sharing is not easy
    Bleu Oleander: why is that?
    Liza Deischer: well, you need to share it with the group to startt with
    Liza Deischer: but i find it harder to communicate about it
    Liza Deischer: maybe using voice would help
    Yakuzza Lethecus thinks about barking back to bleu´s dog
    Bleu Oleander: (sorry ... my dog is barking at all the joggers)
    Liza Deischer: ah :-)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: because ur not jogging with him ? :)
    Bleu Oleander: right :)
    Yakuzza Lethecus: or both
    Liza Deischer: hates them and loves them
    Bleu Oleander: dogs?
    Liza Deischer: no joggers
    Bleu Oleander: or joggers?
    Liza Deischer: :-)
    Bleu Oleander: ha!
    Liza Deischer: I was talking about the appreciations of the dog :-)
    Liza Deischer: do you have some ideas about it Bleu
    Liza Deischer: or is this just coming up at this moment
    Bleu Oleander: about an art project?
    Liza Deischer: yes
    Bleu Oleander: I've been thinking about it


    Bleu Oleander: as a way to bring peeps together and learn to build and script at the same time
    Liza Deischer: because i don't think it is easy, but it seems worthwhile to think about it
    Liza Deischer: with a good idea
    Bleu Oleander: let's see what we come up with
    Bleu Oleander: share ideas
    Bleu Oleander: and present it to the group
    Liza Deischer: did you have a kind of artpiece in mind?
    Liza Deischer: a suggestion or something?
    Bleu Oleander: not yet, but i'll think about it
    Liza Deischer: it should be someting that is suitable for the whole group
    Bleu Oleander: yes
    Bleu Oleander: i'm thinking ... start simple
    Liza Deischer: Or something crazy like a junkyard
    Bleu Oleander: yes!
    Liza Deischer: with all kind of things that moves one way or the other
    Bleu Oleander: I like that
    Liza Deischer: pretty easy to add something
    Liza Deischer: building, using script
    Bleu Oleander: yes!
    Liza Deischer: using textures, everything you can think of
    Liza Deischer: I don't know about the amount of prims we could be using
    Liza Deischer: or if there is any room left
    Bleu Oleander: everyone should be limited to a certain number of prims and textures
    Liza Deischer: It could even be a never ending project
    Bleu Oleander: I saw an art show where everyone was limited to color only, no textures .... turned our amazing
    Bleu Oleander: so very low drag on the system, but colorful
    Liza Deischer: hmmm, that could be a way of building too
    Liza Deischer: a few directions, and thats it
    Bleu Oleander: yes .... see how creative we can be within the restrictions of no textures only color
    Liza Deischer: and maybe a restriction to a certain theme
    Bleu Oleander: sure
    Bleu Oleander: PaB theme
    Liza Deischer: In a way we are already building :-)
    Bleu Oleander: yes :)
    Bleu Oleander: so maybe we should mention this at the next guardian meeting
    Liza Deischer: sounds good to me
    Bleu Oleander: kk
    Liza Deischer: what about you Yaku?
    Liza Deischer: somehow I don't see a builder in you
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i am not going to build anything soon :)
    Liza Deischer: :-)
    Bleu Oleander: you could be a consultant if you didn't want to build :)
    Liza Deischer: I don't think everyone needs to participate
    Bleu Oleander: just those who want to
    Liza Deischer: yes
    Yakuzza Lethecus: i have the wrong thinking when i create something
    Bleu Oleander: why is that?
    Liza Deischer: That sounds like good junk :-)

    Yakuzza Lethecus: i want that things look great and think that i don´t know how, and i get stuck and i don´t start and feel like crap when there isn´t a good outcome afterwards
    Liza Deischer: ah, that's frustrating

    (I think that how Yakuzza feels about art is a common reason that people don't explore their create side .... they're afraid of failure, a stumbling block for all other endeavors as well .... but failure is a great way to learn!  maybe a good reason to participate in a project together)


    Bleu Oleander: well, I'm going to go play with my building ... and think of some ideas
    Bleu Oleander: c u later?
    Liza Deischer: okay, I'm going to take a nap
    Yakuzza Lethecus: bye everyone
    Bleu Oleander: bfn
    Liza Deischer: maybe we see each other in our garden
    Liza Deischer: sharing ideas before sunday
    Bleu Oleander: yes :)
    Liza Deischer: see you Bleu
    Bleu Oleander: bye bye
    Liza Deischer: I will be visiting your project soon
    Bleu Oleander: great
