Finally we can sit (and meditate) in Sansar!

After so many requests and patience regarding the option to sit in Sansar, it happened in the end yesterday:

Linden Lab pushed the limit yesterday in a 3 hour maintenance and the rewards were amazing!   We are able to sit, wave,point,laughed out loud,dance with eachother and many more animations.

Later on many realised there was more!    You can communicate now sort of cross-over in chat between VR users and Desktop users improving the meetings and events.

Another important tool is the behaviour of the objects you are are importing in Sansar. the settings you can change before uploading in light effects,keyframed, dynamic and more, very important for  future Sansarians who are curious in what Sansar is all about as a Social VR World.

You can imagine that after the long  (sit) wait, there was a real party atmosphere among Sansarians with funny images,jokes and almost disbelief in what we can do with all these new gadgets in the near future.  It showed me in what you can achieve together as a strong community: The passion & hard work in creating a new world with the latest technology is resulting now in exiting innovations thanks to a solid base.

The cooperation between Linden Research & Sansarians is fantastic and worth mentioning!

My Kingdom for a Seat in Sansar?

” The long quest for a sitting animation in Sansar”

How sweet having a seat in Sansar!  During 2017 untill now in february there are a lot of discussions going on in how we could create a sort of sitting animation.So many barstools,benches walls and chairs and nowhere to sit and enhance our interactivity in the scene or experience.

At Galen´s Hoverpark I have noticed an interesting one bended knee while hovering across the experience and took a snapshot right away.

Another trick would be using an invisible cube and place it at a certain angle near a barstool,bench or chair. With the famous blue laser positioning for your avatar (Shift + Left Click Mouse) you could try to sit, however just with slightly bending knees,  but it is a start!

The best way in the end is of course  using the real thing the sitting animation. With my transparency in what I am doing in Sansar, I hope that it will give other creators/developers some ideas about this.
