World of the Month

The Patch

World of the month is Drum Roll Please. The Owner DearHeart .Interview with her. The Patch it is a P30 about 3 years old … it is one of many I have had over the years since joining AW in 1998. The theme of the world is focused around nature … so lots of trees and plants. I joined in 1998 at the suggestion of a 14 year old. At that time many Australians were in AW and there was a lot of energy and building. Outside of AW I engage in mosaic work from small 3D boxes to large wall hangings; I also garden, growing all my own vegetables.

Build Tips 

Warps and Teleports

What is the difference between a warp and a teleport?

Warp is where it moves your avatar (like you're walking) from your current location (Coordinates) to another location based on the coordinates you put in.
Teleport is a command that will take your avatar directly from 1 location to another location either in the same world or in another world.

Specific location warps are comprised of a few coordinate numbers, for example it could be 500n 500e 5.0a 90
* First number is the location north or south, so if the coordinates was on south side of world than the specific coordinate would be 500s
* Second number is the east or west coordinate so if the coordinate was on the west side of the world than the specific coordinate would be 500w
* Third number is the height (Meter) .10a = 1 meter up, 1.0 = 10 meters up.
* Fourth number is the degree of which way you want to face, a quarter turn would be 90, a full turn would be 360. Each 90 degree turn faces you 1/4 turn to your left. If you do not put in a number at the end then where you end up you will always be facing north. So there is no need to put in a 0 or 360.
To take this to the next step, you can also do a negative, so lets use the same coordinates but have it move you 10 meters down, it would be 500n 500e -1.0a 90

Another way to enter warp commands is to put in specific distance commands,

Activeworlds

Server Controlled Movers

You can use any object to create a server controlled mover. 
1) Place your object where you want it to be in the world
2) Right click so the object property box opens
3) On the top of the object properties box, bring up the drop down list under "Type" then select "Mover"
4) Then under "Mover Type" bring up the drop down list and select "Server Controlled"
5) You want to scroll down till you see "Lock Av Position" Place a mark in the box to the right
6) "Lock Offset (X,Y,Z), this controls where your avatar is placed in the object when it is connected. The controls are as follows
X = E/W
Y = Up/Down
Z = N/S
7) "Lock Av Yaw" this is the direction your avatar will face when connected to the mover. If you check the box to the right then your avatar will be locked in place while connected to the mover. If you do not check the box your avatar will be able to turn as you are connected and moving with the mover.
8) "Locked Yaw" (0 to 360) If you check mark the box in the "Lock Av Yaw" if you want the avatar to face any other direction than north you would have to put a degree here.
9) "Lock Av Pitch" Check mark this if you want to have the avatar face up or down
10) "Locked Pitch" (-180 to 180) This is where you put the degree you want the avatar to face.

Once you finish the above steps you are ready for the next step.
Note: Once you finish this and close the Object Property box you will not be able to click on the object directly, you will have to click on an object near it and then where the object you created is you will see a "M" show up on the bottom of it and this is how you will be able to select it.

One program I would suggest you get is Vercal.exe - CLICK HERE

 
To use this program you need to get the location information for the object you are using as your mover. Open up the object property box

 
In the object property box look under location and you will see 3 boxes each labeled with X (W/E), Y (Up-Down) and Z (N-S)
Copy the numbers from each section and place them in the corresponding boxes in the center of Vercal.
Once you input this information, this info will not change.

 
There are a couple basic rules when doing a server controlled mover.

1) Only allowed to have 50 moves
2) Can only go 320 millimeters (32 meters) in any direction from original object

* I would suggest laying out your mover by taking the object you are using and place another object in the first location you want to move it to until you want it to turn (Make sure it is a object not a mover),

* Label the object # 1, continue by copying another object and move it to the next spot you want to move it to until you want to turn again,

* Label the next object # 2. Follow this pattern labeling each one consecutive until you are done.

* Note that if you are setting up a sharp 90 degree turn the turn will be a sharp turn, you can adjust this by using multiple objects to do the move, but you will have to figure this out on your own, not sure how to explain it is something you will have to play with to work out on your own.

I would suggest have a lines piece of paper and write numbers 1 through how many lines you will use up to 50.

Now lets get started collecting out mover date. Go to where you placed your # 1 object, bring up the object property box and find the location copy the X, Y and Z information and place it in the left side of the Vertex calculator.

 
Once you input the information, on the right side of the Vertex calculator you will see numbers populate.

 
On your piece of paper next to line 1 write down the corresponding results for X, Y and Z.

Continue on to each numbered object you put in and do the same, writing the corresponding number next to each line.

Once you complete the above process and you have all the X,Y and Z numbers, now you go into object properties and go to where you see "Waypoint Editor" and click on it.

 
In here you see rows 1 thru 50 and columns labeled X, Y, Z, Yaw, Pitch, Roll, Speed and Pause. I am not going to get into Yaw, Pitch, Roll, this you can play around with as you create your mover, basicly Yaw is which way your avatar faces, Pitch is tilt left and right and Roll is how much tilt foward or backward.
With the above being said, now take your paper and fill in each line
X - put in the corresponding number for that line
Y - put in the corresponding number for that line
Z - put in the corresponding number for that line
Yaw - for now put in "0" you can adjust later
Pitch - for now put in "0" you can adjust later
Roll - for now put in "0" you can adjust later
Speed - for normal speed I find putting in 5 is a good speed, but you can choose based on your preference
Pause - any number you put in here will make the object stop for that many seconds before moving onto the next line.

If you have any questions, suggestions or additional info you think would be helpful, please email me.

Warps and Teleports

What is the difference between a warp and a teleport?

Warp is where it moves your avatar (like you're walking) from your current location (Coordinates) to another location based on the coordinates you put in.
Teleport is a command that will take your avatar directly from 1 location to another location either in the same world or in another world.

Specific location warps are comprised of a few coordinate numbers, for example it could be 500n 500e 5.0a 90
* First number is the location north or south, so if the coordinates was on south side of world than the specific coordinate would be 500s
* Second number is the east or west coordinate so if the coordinate was on the west side of the world than the specific coordinate would be 500w
* Third number is the height (Meter) .10a = 1 meter up, 1.0 = 10 meters up.
* Fourth number is the degree of which way you want to face, a quarter turn would be 90, a full turn would be 360. Each 90 degree turn faces you 1/4 turn to your left. If you do not put in a number at the end then where you end up you will always be facing north. So there is no need to put in a 0 or 360.
To take this to the next step, you can also do a negative, so lets use the same coordinates but have it move you 10 meters down, it would be 500n 500e -1.0a 90

Another way to enter warp commands is to put in specific distance commands,
So if you want to move a person 10 meters north and 5 meters east and up 5 meters you would put in these numbers +10 -5 +.5a .
First number is (+)north/(-)south, second number is the (-)east/(+)west third number is the height, if you do not put in the a after the number then the third number becomes a turn.

Now to do all the above warps, you need the command line, there are 2 basic, bump warp or activate warp.
Bump warp means when your avatar bumps into the specific object then your avatar will be moved to its designated location or distance from.
Activate warp is where you have to click on an object for it to move you to the designated location or distance from.

Teleport Commands
Teleport commands work basically the same way as warp, but as explained above, teleport commands take you directly to a designated coordinates.
One of the extra things you can do with a teleport is to transport to another world.
Commands are basically the same, instead of bump warp, you would use bump teleport and instead of activate warp you would use activate teleport.
A basic teleport command using the above coordinates would be activate teleport 500n 500e 1.0a 90. This command will take you to the coordinates specified in the current world you are in.
To teleport to another world you just add the world name as shown on world list in front of the coordinates.
Would like something like this activate teleport worldname 500n 500e 1.0a 90

If you have any questions, suggestions or additional info you think would be helpful, please email me.

Virtual Travel


Welcome to Napa Valley
Come along with me as I give you a Virtual tour of such of
Napa Valley,California. Believe it or not there are Active Worlds Citizens that live in the Region. And has been known to visit the and done shopping as well as dinning.
One of Your Editor In Chef's favorite spots. Not just because of the wine,but the scenery the open clean fresh clean air not to mention the fresh Fruit & vegetables that are sold in many fruit stands and markets in the area. Not to mention some of the best restaurants in the state are found here

And because I love gardening outside activities shopping, antique shopping garage sales,tag sales . cooking with fresh ingredients.
and such to mention the Antiques stores and who can forget the cheese. Got a problem with Weeds & over growth in your field or yard or the side of the road .How about renting a goat to take care of your gardening problems. Sure enough Rent a Goat for a day or week. Your cooking skills need a re fresher course check out some of the cooking demos in town. Many of the wineries have summer concerts as well and cooking lessons. Your line-dancing need a re do checkout some of night spots .
And a bit of trivia as well, Hollywood has been spotted often times shooting many shots in the area and many Hollywood Stars make Napa their home away from home. Can you name a few?

One hour north of San Francisco, all of life’s greatest indulgences — wine, food, relaxation, and adventure — can be experienced all at once in Napa Valley, one of the top Wine Country destinations in the world. Thirty miles long and five miles wide, this small slice of heaven as we call it is home to wineries restaurants art gallaries, B&B & Mud Baths. Calistoga’s detoxifying hot springs, there’s something for every kind of traveler, whether you’re a oenophile, foodie, adventurist, or self-care Active Worlds Citizen that wants to un-wind.
There is also not a bad time to visit to visit Napa Valley. September & October are the busiest and warmest months, offering the chance to experience the annual grape harvest in action, the winter months have their own appeal. It’s quiet, uncrowded, and not too chilly with temperatures mostly hanging out in the 50s and 60s. Plus, many hotels offer hard-to-beat off-season rates. Your best chance of rain is in the spring, but the blooming fields of bright, yellow mustard also make it one of the most Instagram-worthy seasons to plan a trip.
One of the best ways to experience Napa Valley is to board the Napa Valley Winetrain.https://www.winetrain.com/
This six-hour journey down Napa’s Highway 29 is one of the best tours around; it takes you all the way back to pre-prohibition and the 1800s for a crash course in Napa Valley history. The trip features scenic views from a refurbished, antique railcar, a four-course gourmet meal, and stops for wine tastings at Robert Mondavi, Charles Krug (Napa Valley’s oldest winery), and V. Sattui wineries
The train will drop you off in Napa, within walking distance to downtown. Stroll over to the Oxbow Public Market, where you can shop from a myriad of local vendors for souvenirs and gifts, like locally-made olive oils or spirits from Napa Valley Distillery. You can also grab a pre-dinner snack — think, oysters from Hog Island Oyster Co., a mini Sweet S’mores or Chocolate Velvet cupcake from Kara’s Cupcakes, or organic ice cream from Three Twins, in flavors like Mocha Difference and Land of Milk and Honey. Thirsty? Grab a pint at Fieldwork Brewing Company
.Day 2
Spend your second day exploring the towns that put the “Valley” in “Napa Valley.” The small towns of Yountville, Oakville, Rutherford, St. Helena, and Calistoga are referred to by locals as the “UpValley,” so use that term if you want to blend in. You will NEED for sure some good “walking shoes” we have much more walking to do.We just got started. Hungry for breakfast?
For breakfast, head to chef Thomas Keller’s famous Bouchon Bakery in Yountville for pastries and espresso. Most likely there will be a line out the door, but it moves quickly. If you want to double down, you can head to Mini Model across the street. This is a smaller location of the locally-acclaimed Model Bakery. Get the English muffin. It’s so good that Oprah Winfrey actually has them flown in to her.
Lunch time: Gotta keep up your strength now. Lunch at Gott’s Roadside
For lunch, continue to head north and pull over at the original Gott’s Roadside location in St. Helena. Formerly Taylor’s Automatic Refresher, when Gott’s took over, they kept the old, 50s-style roadside building, now a Napa Valley landmark. There may be a line here too, but the burgers and shakes are a can’t-miss. Gott’s is located at the gateway of St. Helena’s charming Main Street, so you can walk your meal off afterwards with some window shopping at the local boutiques. From your Editor in Chef this is a fun spot to have lunch. Food is good. I recommend their Burgers. Everything is good.
Want to un wind and forget your troubles and your building mishaps the lost passwords the building locations that you thought you had book marked but you didn't. I got just the spot for you to forget all of that . For the better part of the afternoon, drive the eight miles from St. Helena to Calistoga for some spa time. This quirky, little town is best known for its healing mineral waters from natural hot springs, plus mud baths that’ll make your skin as smooth as a newborn. Make an appointment for a spa treatment ahead of time; there are so many local spas to choose from, from super luxe resorts like Indian Springs and Solage to more intimate and classically restorative escapes at The Moonacre Spa and Golden Haven Hot Springs.

For your finial day . UP UP & Way you will go. Schedule your travel plans home later in the day so that you have time for one last hurrah. One of Napa Valley’s most sought-after adventures is a sunrise hot air balloon ride over the vines. We promise that the 6 AM wake up call is worth it. Don’t forget your camera!
Check out Balloons Above the Valley, Napa Valley Aloft, and Napa Valley Balloons, Inc. to schedule your flight, which often includes a post-flight breakfast with sparkling wine.
Hope that you have enjoyed your virtual tour of Napa Valley. If you have a spot that you would like to include in this New Feature of AW Virtual life please do send me or my staff a gram and we will include them. Thanks for reading.

The Garden

Gardening Tips for the Home Gardener.

Summer Gardening tips for the month of June
Tips for summer gardening
Watering is very important for your summer crops. Water in the morning, not the heat of the day where most of the water get evaporated.
If your location has water restrictions from drought, mulch your garden beds to reduce evaporation and to keep in soil moisture.
Harvest crops before the heat of the day or late evening once things have cooled down …
Summer gardening & eating
fresh summer vegetables is so rewarding!
This post will guide you on what you should plant now in your summer garden and dealing with summer garden challenges like the heat. What is now? Now is something different to every gardener because of your growing zone (not sure what yours is? Check on line for your state Planting growing zones. In general people plant their summer gardens in May or June.
Mulch
Spreading a 2-inch-deep layer of mulch over your soil is one of the best things you can do for your garden. The mulch blankets the ground, shielding the soil from the sun. This keeps it cooler, so your plant roots are happier, and prevents moisture loss from evaporation. Gardening at home is a great way to save money while you get up close and personal with nature. For example, even just one plant can be super affordable (think $3 to $5) and provide up to 10 pounds of tomatoes over the season (which can easily run you $20 or more). and other favorite vegetables or herbs from seeds can save you even more money. You’ll also find that the flavor and texture of garden-grown produce is even better than what you're used to finding at the grocery store. Dig into these tips and tricks to grow the best vegetable garden.
Start out small. If your a beginner it is better to start out small and marvel what you have accomplished then to be disappointed at your efforts. Plus it takes time & effort and a vision.And a love to play in the dirt again get dirty while doing it feel the dirt between your fingers You will be spending more time outside with your family and rewarding them with your efforts and sharing with others the rewards of your efforts and they will be great. A good size of a garden is 10x10 .
Vegetables
Whether you're ready to plant your first crops or have been growing food for years, you'll find new ideas to keep you going and growing. There's no reason to keep your vegetables separate from the rest of the garden; we show you how with ideas to integrate edibles into the yard (called edible landscaping).
Planning a vegetable garden and successfully harvesting your own produce is easy with this three-season plan for a raised bed vegetable garden. The layout of a vegetable garden. Can make or break its success, so it's important to do it right. Follow the planting plans an checklists for each season so you can enjoy a fruitful vegetable garden. from early spring into fall.
Add colorful containers
Keep annual containers looking their best with regular watering, fertilizing and deadheading. In mid-summer, cut back trailing annuals such as petunias and million bells by half and give regular feedings of water-soluble bloom booster fertilizer for a new flush of color. Replace tired-looking plants with new ones for an updated look. Move containers into mixed borders where there are holes or gaps for an element of surprise
Use container-grown edibles as ornamental accents
Many new varieties of fruits and vegetables have been bred to perform well in containers, making them a great choice for small decks or patios. raspberries or blueberries are attractive on their own, but can also be planted in colorful ceramic pots or combined with annuals such as trailing nasturtiums for an extra splash of color.

The harsh summer of UAE is finally here. The sweltering heat and increasing humidity take a toll on all, including plants and animals.
You might be lucky enough to escape to the air conditioned rooms of your apartment. But this may not be the case with plants and beautiful flowers in the garden. They are exposed to high-temperature day in and day out. Then how do you protect the plants from the harsh weather?
In the case of potted plants, you can leave some water in the container so that the plants get enough moisture. Slow watering of plants is essential so that the water seeps well and go deep inside the soil.
While watering, you should ensure that the plants are not overwatered. Overwatering can result in the growth of bacteria and can lead to rotting of roots. Touch the topsoil to check for dryness before watering the plants.
In its simplest form, a kitchen garden produces fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs for delicious, healthy meals. A kitchen garden doesn’t have to be right outside the kitchen door, but the closer it is, the better. Think about it this way: The easier it is for you to get into the garden, the more likely it is that you will get tasty things out of it. Did you forget to add the chopped dill on your boiled red-skinned potatoes? No problem — it’s just steps away.
Starting a Kitchen Garden
If you have to choose between a sunny spot or a close one, pick the sunny one. The best location for a new garden is one receiving full sun (at least six hours of direct sunlight per day), and one where the soil drains well. If no puddles remain a few hours after a good rain, you know your site drains well.
After you’ve figured out where the sun shines longest and strongest, your next task will be to define your kitchen garden goals. My first recommendation for new gardeners is to start small, tuck a few successes under your belt in year one, and scale up little by little.

- description text -
Hi People :
This is a sample of a multi-level Teleport Carousel i'm working on for fun, in between other projects.

The sample combines the "imageFlow" JS carousel template, with 360deg pano previews & teleport links for each pictured teleport destination.

The "imageFlow" carousel format can be expanded with additional top-level menu choices, & multiple sub-level carousels of menus or pictured teleport destinations. Concept is about same as popular text menu systems, just displayed differently.

At some point later on, i'll accept a limited number of teleport destination images with corresponding teleport coordinates & AW pano screen captures, to include in the carousel.

- Gremot :)

Dewey's Maze

 

Solve my maze.

 

 
 

1. Shoulders Roll your shoulders forward and backward 10 times each to relieve tension and ease the muscles. Breathe in, lift your shoulders, crunch your neck, hold your breath for 30 seconds and then release your shoulders. Do this 10 times. Move each shoulder forward and backward alternatively, 10 times on each side.

2. Neck Stretch your neck forward, backward, to the left and right. This move reduces the strain on your neck, shoulders, and clears your mind. Clench your neck muscles until they’re taut. Hold for a few seconds and then release.

3. Chest Open your arms wide push your wrists and thumbs back and stretch your arms away from your shoulders. This will expand your chest and allow you to take in more oxygen. Repeat this exercise every hour or so.

4. Tummy Breathe in, suck in your tummy, hold it in for a few seconds, and then release it as you breathe out. Repeat this move every few minutes during your day. Breathe in and pull in your pelvic floor muscles. Hold this position for a few seconds and then release.

5. Arms Grab a full water bottle and hold it up over your head. Keep this position for 30 seconds and alternate with your other arm. Sit straight, move your chair back and hold both your arms out straight in front of you. Hold this position for 30 seconds and then relax. Rotate your arms clockwise and anticlockwise 10 times on each side.

6. Wrists Roll your wrists both clockwise and anticlockwise every now and then, at least 10 times with each wrist. Wrists are prone to Repetitive Stress Syndrome and Carpal Tunnel Syndrome; you can prevent these from occurring by constantly working out your wrists. Flap your wrists frontwards and backwards as though you’re serving a tennis ball. Repeat this move several times.

7. Hands Squeeze a hand gripper repeatedly for at least a minute with each hand. You can do this while reading something on your screen. Keep your palms straight in front of you, and spread your fingers as far as they will go. Keep the position for a few seconds and then release. Repeat several times.

8. Fingers Get hold of exercise rubber bands or any strong, thick rubber bands. Loop a band around your forefingers and stretch it as far as you can and then release. Do this with your other fingers. Interlace your fingers and push your elbows apart. Do this as often as you can. The stretch feels good for fingers that have strained on the keyboard all day.

9. Ankles Roll your ankles clockwise and anticlockwise every hour or so. Take off your shoes if possible, stand on your toes and lean back. Your ankles will strengthen with this exercise.

10. Feet Clench all your toes and release them after a few seconds. Move all your toes and allow air to pass between them.

11. Calves Stretch your leg out in front of you and pull back your feet. This stretches your calves. Hold this position for a few seconds and then release. Do it 10 times with both legs. Lift your legs on the balls of your feet; hold the position for a few seconds and then release. This exercise will prevent blood clots from forming.

12. Thighs Breathe in, lift both legs together upwards towards your chest, keep your legs up for 30 seconds and release as you breathe out. Repeat every hour. This will pull at your thigh muscles and tighten them. Clench your butt and thighs and hold the position for 30 seconds. Release and repeat several times.

13. Butt Clench and unclench your buttocks alternately, holding them in the clenched position for 30 seconds each time. Clench both buttocks together and release them after 30 seconds.

14. Back Push your shoulders back until they meet in the middle of your back. Push your body slightly forward and exercise your back muscles. Hold the position for a few seconds and then release. Keep your body straight and twist your upper body at the waist to the left and the right. Twist it as far as it will go, moving your head along with your waist. This will relax your back muscles, which take most of the strain during your workday.

15. Eyes Shut your eyes twice every hour. Place the pads of your palms on your eyes and apply mild pressure. This will relieve eyestrain. Take your eyes off your monitor and let them wander around for a few seconds every now and then. This exercise keeps your eyes alert and reduces possible headaches and eye irritation.
