    Lightbulb Why did I get into Second Life Online! Why should you

    Hi there guys...

    I got attracted by Second Life loooong time ago, but at that time I was too busy to start playing a MOG...

    Then with this new talking about several MOG to choose from I went back to have a look again to Second Life...

    Why do I think that Second Life could be of great interest to members of the 3D Buzz community....
    SIMPLE! This is the only game that has all we could be looking for

    As oppoed to many other MOG where all you do is go around and kill monsters, Second Life is in fact a second life enabling you to be creative and even make money if you are up to it and if you have interest about it....

    Second Life has been designed in a way that would appeal to Modders, Musicians, Scripters, 3D modellers and 2D artists.

    You can in other words create you own textures for clothes, hair, fave, tatoos! etc.. and upload them to your avatar (you cna have as many avatars you want for free) and even trade them or sell your textures and clothes design etc...

    You can use the in-game! tools to create objects.. all sort from cars to airplanes to toys and what not... create houses etc... for your self or to sell them to others!
    You can apply Havok Physics to your creations! and Even script behaviours!

    Indeed many people are creating games within Second Life for others to play for free or to Pay per Play! Like FPS RPGs Car games, slot machines, puzzle games etc...

    It is really a great concept that should be of interest to a creative community like 3D Buzz members...

    They also pay teachers! If you want to teach others how to script or other stuff liek modelling, music etc.. they pay you with L$500 in-game dollars ( I think per class)

    there is a lot into it and I signed up to create some pay-area, do some game prototyping etc.. Well yes I 'm a game and level designer (Employed since 1994... Eidos first now another company) so I look forward to see what Second Life can do for me.

    Anyway I thoguht that this online persisten workd would be more interesting to 3D Buss people then bog standard games like EverQuest or Asheron Calls that yes they are great as games, but you keep a passive presence in a world pre-built...

    You can check Second Life and see what you think,
    if you want to help me out you can!

    this is my personal referral link

    http://secondlife.com/ss/?u=d77da829...3f78d54e660f43

    If any of you signs up through my referral link I'll get some bonus in-game money per refered user.
    You don't have to, but if you do I'll appreciate it

    We can meet in game, also with Second Life it is possible for people to group and create a gourp owned land (where each group memebrs contributes parts of land)... so we could have the 3D Buzz land? But before we can do that we would all need big plots to donate from to the group

    anyway.. I'm going back in there to read a bit about tools etc..

    you said that all other games u just run around and kill monsters. I had a look at the second screenshot (on the link you added) and it was of a serious weapon with text encouraging you to script it to do serious damage

    Just thought that was funny.

    I have seen this site before, pitty is costs money to play.

    well it is different...

    within second life there are areas where for example USERS have created gaming areas... where you can go and play with guns...

    most areas are SAFE areas where you can't kill peple... but if you want to play FPS you can... if you want to creat your own FPS games or kill the monsters game you can and people will play YOUR game!

    Well yes it costs money to play... ermmm yes... it does!
    No many things in life are free

    It does look very good though. If I had a bit of extra cash I would check it out. I may try the 7 day free trial to see how it is.

    BTW..
    you must be OVER 18 to play

    this is actually a good things as you have a lot of mature people wanting to have fun and help... and socialise and play etc...
    you don't really get any 15 years old kid wanting to hack your game... try to cheat or kill you on respaws I guess (there are some 15 year old kids that do that in other games... I do not mean all 15 years old kids would actually do that )


    ALSO:
    Second Life will be down Wednesday, December 22, from 6 AM PT to 10 AM PT for maintenance of the asset server.
    (From their Second Life Forum announcements)
    just in case you wonder why something may not work properly...

    I played last night and it was cool!
    You can even fly around the areas... a bit like Dragon BallZ people buzing around eh heh eh and hoveing mid air in places..

    last night as well there was this free snow ball party where plenty of people fromt the Company making the game were there including thir CEO exchanging snow ball throws with users... he he funny... free snow ball for every one it was

    I would think so...
    they need your credit card info to prove you are 18...
    if you cancel before the end of the 7 days you won't be charged...

    Well I'm 16 so that leaves me out. Its a shame as it definitly looks interesting, but can see why they have the over 18 limit. I guess I'll give it a try (if I remember) in two years.
