Phase Two Cranking Up.

I had two simple goal when I started this project in March. Goal one was to have a working VRMMO VOIP coding core, and that goal was achieved. Goal two was the have a map big enough and detailed enough to show off the core differences in Alamin's design. Now with those goals complete, phase two is ready to start. While I can't go over the fine details I can share the overall goals.
     This phase is all about getting cereal. It's about completing all the sketchup pro modeling so structures and features can be extremely detailed, modeled after real world designs by a commercial construction professional.

Now I think that thinking with Theme park game philosophy in mind makes a lot more sense in the world of VR. I don't want travel time to be long between features. I want features to be close, detailed and dense. Only the highest quality PBR RTX ready assets are being used. I want the world to be full of mini games.…
