    As some of you know, Second Life is a virtual world that allows for a lot of creativity and building options. Mesh objects can now be imported to make beautiful builds (people are ripping Mesh objects out of SWTOR to build in-world) and everything can be scripted to interact and change. To that end, I want to bring UFP into Second Life in some capacity, even if it is just another small roleplay outlet or gathering space.

    I proposed this back in 2011 and there just wasn't enough umf to make it a true "piece" of the UFP mechanics. Plus, SL is not a "Trek" platform in and of itself. The proposal and discussion is here: http://ufplanets.com/showthread.php?...-Life-Presence.
    (No, this will not turn into another proposal for the foreseeable future)

    What I want to do now is see who would be interested in using Second Life for some roleplay and perhaps general hangout. Sammygm and I are working on a small parcel right now that I already own and I will reply here once that's ready. We'll even hopefully have some uniforms and pips and stuff. The bridge we snagged for cheap is amazing and interactive. Think RPG-X customization (with better scripting), with STO (or better) graphics.

    So please reply if you'd be interested in trying things out, maybe even run a small roleplay event soon. More info to come!

    To anyone who might be interested, I must say that Second Life is amazing for role play, the amount of customization you can do is amazing, the market place is filled with tools and RP objects for pretty much any franchise (Except for Battlestar Galactica because universals pulled the plug). and what Caymen currently have is great for some fun star trek related!

    I suggest giving this a try.

    Ok, I think we have things ready for people to come in and check out. The only thing we do not have right now is a free uniform, so until that happens, you'll have to spend 1-2 USD to get something decent. There is a welcome kit you can get by clicking the sign right inside the parcel that gives you some tips on how to get a uniform and such. In time we'll get a freebie up there.

    If you are familiar with Second Life, login and then go to this location:
    http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlif...us/29/151/2402
    (Yes, it is a Star Wars parcel I run, but the location above is the bridge of a fake ship, the USS Novum)

    If you are unfamiliar with Second Life, I highly advise you go through these steps:
    1. View this page and video: http://secondlife.com/whatis/
    2. Create an account, download, and install: https://join.secondlife.com/
    3. Login and go through their tutorial/help island content - it is extremely helpful!

    Once you complete these steps, you can them teleport to the location above.

    If anyone needs us, I am Marcus (marcus.moreau) and Sammy is Sam Enderfield (samm.enderfield). Friend us and we can help you if we're online. You might find us on TS first to see if we are around.

    Excellent caps, Sammy (might double-check the first link). But as you all can see, there is a lot you can do in SL and at high-quality graphics. And we can customize the viewer to put our own images up I think. There is a lot we can do!

    Thanks Shakken. I do want to stress that people tend to think of SL as a place for 3D porn or different niches like GOR or virtual "clubbing" or "yay I get to be a furry". There is a LOT going on in SL that is not those things - strong roleplay in the areas of Star Wars, medieval fantasy, and even Star Trek. So don't let any of the 'negative' connotations (although the above niches I mentioned don't have to be negative - not my intent) dissuade you from coming in and having fun with us!

    I stick to the fantasy sims (clearly). I do have a crappy Trek uniform somewhere but it doesn't fit. For some reason Starfleet doesn't make them with holes for my wings :/. Maybe we can tape a com badge to my chest .

    Thanks to Sammy, free uniforms are now in the "Welcome Pack". Check them out, and let either of us know if you have any issues. Still hope to see a few more folks pop in, get some feedback before we try to host a Harriers-sponsored/assisted event. Smile

    Bump to see if anyone would be interested in trying a proper "event" in the near future. I can sponsor it from Harriers so it shows up in our events feed and everything. We would just do an hour one-shot, with probably 30-minutes of troubleshooting/prep.

    Reply and share your interest. If we don't get at least 5 or 6 people interested in an event, we'll probably mothball the idea for now.
