Is anyone still using Active Worlds?

Recommended Posts

Hmm. I tried downloading the non-accelerated version and it worked. I was browsing around this afternoon.

Guess it was their software...

I'm back!... but my computers not. I have to post from the office... oh well. I am glad to see our little adventure into AW has payed off Epsilon5. Didn't think my bar would be so popular, but hey whatever works. hehe. My computer should be done in a day or so and I will be back on AW. By the way, I don't know if any of you saw her but my wife was hanging out on AW Friday, in my bar, but she kept crashing my computer. I haven't had any problems with Active Worlds accelerated version. A lot of the problems are probably associated with hardware or certain software. My wife complained of Win2000 issues, but I didn't have any trouble. Well see you guys back in the bar soon.

The New Commanders' Village Directory is up and running.

Baloogan, are you going to do anything with that tower lobby?

The Insurgent Secret Base has been complete for a few days and waiting for its first Insurgent visitors (go to the Insurgent Forum for details).

Is anyone searching for the "secret passage" (evil grin )? It's in the vicinity of my office.

What's up guys. I have made a few changes (from the office... hehe. Hope they don't find AW installed) anyhoo I get my comp back today. I added a corporate table and chairs in the corporate meeting room. I also put force fields with sound effects on every entrance to the building. If you are running the High Content version go touch the beer case and the barmaid and see what happens (be sure to have your speakers on) I found something neat in that random teleport I put behing the stairwell. A guy has a ship the flies circles around. Took him a while but gave me some ideas. I am thinking of what kind of music I want in the bar... if you can't figure out the new song it is R Kelly "I wish" I want some party music. I have thought of other things to add but for right now bear with me.

Check out my new stuff people. I will eventually add my *hick* voice in to somewhere like the tv, and have several Ideas to run by you guys. Well see you all there.

To whomever repaired the mineral pool at Pkzip's House of Turkish Delights (Ep5? Jag?), a million thanks, it's beautiful and now holds water. Also, nice touch-ups to the glass luminosity and the 'minarets.' Please see Brunhilda in the back for a complimentary pi├▒a colada and full-body hot oil massage.

Every good soldier deserves a little R&R. And for the female soldiers amongst us, Gunter will also be available every other Tuesday.

PS- anyone know where I can get some huge palm trees? Apparently hard to come by on Mars.

I did it, pkzip. when you said you'd tear it down because it wasn't looking good, I knew I had to do something. Now, you have a beautiful white glass house and a beautiful bath.

If you tear the building down, I'll tear YOU down!

Took me about 15mins.

Roger that, sir! I'll resume construction.

By the way, Mikel's putting up a nice rugged armory/weapons range next to the bathhouse. Which led us to wonder about our neighborhood that now has a brewery, firearms, and scantily-clad women. Perhaps we will hold a Rave soon and give those guys over at the Police Academy something to do.

Heh, now it's a full-fledged station with an interrogation room. Ouch.

Holding cells, a front desk, and small offices are on the way... but not tonight. I need rest. Damn flesh... if only I could transfer my consciousness to a machine. THEN I'd be good to go.

Hehe. Just make sure you don't transfer yourself into Mikel's machine.

OK. Who put that message in the secret base?

After doing a little detective work ( ), I learned that the person who found my base was Epsilon 5.

As a result of this security breach, I moved my base. Now, when are you Insurgents gonna apply for the coordinates? I hope I didn't build it for nothing.

Hey EP5, have you invited any Orion Commanders to your secret facility?

The New Directory will be updated soon.

ATTENTION ALL ACTIVE WORLDS BUILDERS AND VISITORS: We have a vandal in the Commanders' Village. This is not a joke.

Someone has been going to the new buildings and inserting adult pics in the frames. This is the second incident in two days. The latest incident (which took place less than three hours ago) was much worse than the previous one.

Epsilon 5 and I haven't examined every place yet, but so far we have discovered the following:

All of the frames in $iLk's Bar, which included the BCM box art, beer logos, national flags, and $iLk's portrait on the TV screen were edited and adult pics were inserted. His sign at the back of the building had the word 'porn' inserted.

The picture of $iLk and his wife which he placed in his office recently was replaced with an adult pic.

The GCV Vigilance (the ship under construction over the Orion Offices) suffered the most damage. The pictures of the SC were replaced with adult pics, the desks were moved out of position, and the hull was deconstructed in some places.

Gamma Wing HQ was hit again, with 1 pic found in one of the frames.

The text on the entry sign that leads to Epsilon 5's latest structure, Way to Heaven, was replaced with the words 'Way to Hell'.

You will be updated with new information as we find it. In the meantime, be on the lookout for suspicious avatars.

UPDATE: After another check through the structures, it was discovered that Gamma Wing HQ took more damage than previously thought. Walls, tables and desks have been moved out of position.

Epsilon 5 and I have completed our checks of all new structures. It appears that most of the vandalism occurred in Gamma Wing HQ, the GCV Vigilance, and the various areas of GALCOM's World (including $iLk's Bar and office).

The identity of the vandal is unknown at this time, but is believed to be a detractor who is lurking the Commanders' Village and possibly the Battlecruiser forums.

All AW visitors and builders are advised to keep a lookout for suspicious avatars.

WHAT THE HELL? After all that work...

*whines uncontrollably* Whoever did this no doubt is someone from these forums, or perhaps a visitor from the Voodoo Extreme threads that were so pissed off at our Pro BCM argument.

Well I will now go see what has been done- hopefully you deleted those pics

Well my investigation is complete :

Here is what I have uncovered

  • All attacks have been directed at structures that I built

  • In my office the picture on my computer was a URL (that wasn't deleted) that only ONE tourist I know has access to getting those pictures.

  • I have singled out the person responsible, however, this time I shall take no action. Instead I have fixed everything that I could find that I had time to.

However, this will not be forgotten. I know who you are. And remember that you are a tourist too. So next time you think about touching my stuff, just be sure to go ahead and spend your 30 bucks registering your property. The only clue that wasn't deleted pointed me to you, so just think next time you do something immature. There are only two people who use active worlds that have the links to my friends website. ME - and you. Everything better stay lovely this time. I won't go through the trouble of "fixing" things next time.

Gamma Wing was a diversion.

From what I saw the attacks were mainly focused on:

GCV Vigilance : Which I built

$iLk Enterprises : I built that one too

$iLk's Bar : I built that one

And the URL that wasn't deleted in my office came from a site that only one other tourist in GALCOM's WORLD has the link to. I thought it was a VOODOO EXTREMIST at first, but then I got to thinking. Only one person have I pissed off in AW in the last couple of days, and discussed it with two of you. The reason I pissed them off was because they were leeching pics from my friends site and my server. They knew where to get those pics. I won't be able to talk more tonight cause I have to work but I want to meet Epsilon 5 and Menchise later. I want you to know what I think is going on.

It is designed so that soldiers can get drunk, fire off their weapons, and work off their hangovers and effeciently as possible.

On a serious note, I've got almost all the armory up and I've got the shooting ranges up.

Silk, we've been hit again I think. (8:15pm GMT-6). Also, Sygan starstation was hit yesterday, and the hentai smut pics have changed since then. What is this bullsh*t.
