Thoughts and Ponderings 2/7/2016


022_thumb5b25d-1Wisdom sometimes is the byproduct of the mistakes we make, learning through the experiences we have in life. The old adage that wisdom comes with age kind of points that exact line of reasoning. As we go through life  and grow older we make many mistakes, if we learn by those mistakes then we gain wisdom.  Though there is many forms wisdom may come in and many sources for wisdom to spring from, learning through trial and error is the most common.

Learn from you experiences of life and try not to repeat the mistakes of your past. Forgive all and forget the pain associated with the mistakes of both yourself and others. For pain from your past is but a weight around your neck that slows you down and a roadblock to happiness in the here and now.

 

Live and Learn, Forgive and move forward. Be who you are truly meant to be.

Thought of the day 12-15-2015


014-2_thumb.jpgTime passes quickly, a lifetime is not as long as it seems when we are young. So knowing life is but a short journey, how would you want to remembered? Do you just want to live life existing? Or would you rather do something meaningful and that you love or enjoy? Service to your fellow human beings is one avenue you could choose. So many ways you could server others, it could be creating something to make life easier, a cure for a disease ,feeding the hungry or showing kindness and compassion. The things you can do to somehow help others is limited only by your imagination.

Helping others is one of the most admirable and noble acts a human can do and if you think about it, one day it may be you on the receiving end of the compassion, charity and helping hearts of others.  Trust me life can turn upside down quickly, I have experienced going from having it all to eating at a soup kitchen and living in my car and back again. Don’t take much to overturn the blessings you enjoy, therefore I say give when you can and be thankful regardless of your position in life. We all part of the big family called humanity and we should take care of each other.

Thought of the Day 11-19-2015


IMG_1077_thumb.jpgWake up sleepy head and open your eyes, the world is spiraling downward. Stop dreaming and make your dreams a part of reality. The world is in need of change and it is up to all of us to enact the positive changes that is needed. Change is like a seed, it starts small and grows as time passes, plant the seeds of change, love and understanding. If we do nothing and let the world go to ruin, we are just as responsible as those whom spread fear, hate and those who care not for life. Time to wake up and start the seeds of positive change, time to make a better world for all of us to enjoy.

 

 

Make a choice, take a stand and do so peacefully and with good conscience .

Thoughts of the day 11-2-2015


chp_thinker.jpg To conform and fit in or to be original and be a trend setter? To be yourself or to be that which others want you to be? Good questions that we all face many times throughout our lives. Problem with total conformity is you lose a part of your personality and self in the process. To be bold and original comes at some risk as well, but at least you will be true to yourself. I guess it all boils down to if you want to lead or if you rather be follower, There is need for both types in our world. Even a follower type can be original and maintain their self-identity during the following process.

Be a dreamer, an architect of your life and your environment, don’t  let your environment be the architect of your life. Free will is the key and choosing not to be a victim of  circumstance is how you gain control of your life.

Just a message of appreciation


Halloween is just around the bend and all the Ghouls in Active Worlds are coming out to play and build. In alpha there is a massive Halloween build area going on and the TGIF party is still on the move. Each Friday the TGIF party is being hosted in different locations and worlds.  I want to show my appreciation as a fellow builder to those who are diligently increasing the amount of builds within active worlds alone.   Citizens such as TenyearsGone for his work in Happy Valley, Sir Greendown  for his hard work in AWTeen world, Kuma Bear for both Bleakwood and Ursine cities and The courier with his build team in alpha. So many names to mention, so little space to type. Also Got to send out my appreciation to the many citizens who work hard behind the scenes teaching and helping new citizens. People Like Color, The Courier, Sir Greendown , Mel, Bach Zhaa, Highwayman and last but not least all the GK’s, Pk’s and those at AW school.

I know there are many names I may have missed, I would be typing for days if I added them all. So to those not mentioned I also say thank you for making Active worlds a better place.

Phase One of Sekrit Projekt: Supercharger – Happy Valley


Phase One of Sekrit Projekt: Supercharger has been completed.

This is a set of 18 prebuilt houses in four orientations, that are all variations of the Victorian house style, saved to AWGs.

To use them, uncompress the zip file to your Active Worlds preset folder.

All houses are set with an offset from the anchor object of 25 meters to the front door, thus house001_n will appear with the front door 25 meters North of the anchor object, with the base of the foundation at the same level as the anchor. It is recommended that the anchor object be placed at co-ordinates ending in 0.00 North and South, and at the height that you want the base of the foundation to be.

All the objects take the “create picture” command to allow for custom textures from anywhere on the internet, and are placed in such a way that there are 6 cells in the interior with anywhere from 20% to 40% cell space remaining to allow you to customize the interior.

Note that the cells immediately to the North and West of each house are empty. Recommended that you use these cells to “fly in” interior walls using the move ….time=0 wait=9e9 command.

It is hoped that new builders can have a village within an hour or two, and experienced builders will use them as a starting point, or placeholder to save hours of repetitive building.

Supercharge your town building today !
