Grab Yourself an Office on Virtual HomeCamp

We now have four Home Camp sims on ReactionGrid on OpenSim:

HomeCamp Labs
HomeCamp Sandbox
HomeCamp Sandbox2

From the meeting we had last Thursday night, we are aiming to have a virtual space to allow us to grow the Home Camp community, to integrate Virtual Worlds with Real World and a great place to run events and sessions.    I’m not entirely sure how we’ll set these up and I am sure we will rename some of the sims.

Stay tuned for the Virtual HomeCamp events calendar, as we are planning on having a regular weekly meeting, certainly initially, and some training sessions to help people get up and running quickly on OpenSim.

We currently have 13 offices on the HomeCamp sim.  One of those is the HomeCamp main office and another has already been rented out to Mike TheBee.  So feel free to come and grab yourself an office.  There is no charge.  Any office with a “Vacant. Enquire within” sign, just stake your claim on the office space.  You might also want to ping either me or Tish Shute so we know it is your office.


Grab any office with a “Vacant. Enquire within” sign on the front.  You’re also welcome to have a house and Dave Pentecost has already got a house rigged up with a live feed from Pachube, which is available to copy and use.

I’m on a building extravaganza at the moment, putting together the buildings and the real estate on the sims.  As soon as the first batch of offices are taken up, I’ll create some more and we’ll keep filling up.

HomeCamp Labs is  potentially the sim that we should use to run any experimental scripts.  So we might want to think about limiting live data feeds and pachube feeds to the Labs sim.  We are planning to have an auditorium for presentations and conference events and there will also be an expo area where green tech companies can have a booth.  So get in touch if you want to have a booth in the Virtual HomeCamp expo.

The HomeCamp Sandbox sim is the place to go and do whatever you want.  Try stuff and build.  Just be kind to the environment and bear in mind that anything in the Sandbox area is likely to be deleted at any point.  So do not leave important stuff in there, or let us know about it.

Overall, really excited by the strong turnout of people at the first Virtual HomeCamp meeting.  Keep an eye on the wiki for the next one.  There are also instructions on the wiki to get you up and running on OpenSim and ReactionGrid.

    It’s very trouble-free to find out any matter on net as
    compared to books, as I found this piece of writing at
    this web page.
