The repository of the SP-ARK project has received some updates during the last one and a half year. All this can be described by the metaphor of “loading some fusibles into an oven, where the fire can be ignited”.
I felt free to update the Hobby Report HR009 about “Facility Loaders” with some ideas about the “My Little Loader” prototype, which is under construction currently.
What is the “My Little Loader” prototype?
The “My Little Loader” prototype is an optional part of the SMUOS Framework, which helps to load and unload dynamic elements during the runtime of a scene, based on trigger events, that are defined by the author of the scene.
What is the “SMUOS Framework”?
The “SMUOS Framework” is a set of X3D prototypes (consisting mainly of script nodes), that are built “on top” of the Network Sensor implementation of Bitmanagement (aka EventStreamSensor).
I.e. the goal of the SMUOS Framework is to ease the use of the Network Sensor by authors, who want to implement interactive worlds for simple 3D chat, simple games or other simple multiuser scenes (SMS).
Precisely spoken: the goal of the SMUOS framework is the gain of know how to ease the use of the Network Sensor for authors.
As you know, I am the “laziest person between Wladiwostok and Los Angeles”, however I see some small chances that we could have a testing session for the SrrTrains v0.01 project at beginning of next year.
Then the first experimental rail vehicle – the so-called “Regway” – could have been finished (with full MU support).
Just a few things left to do:
The “Little Loader” – a MIDAS Object, which can be used as Astral Object in the Frame (Loader for “Dynamic Modules” DyMos) or as Bound Object in any Module (Loader for “Dynamic Bound Objects” DyBos)
The “UBO Loader” – a part of the Simple Scene Controller, which will be used as Loader for “Unbound Objects” UBOs
MU Support in the Regway Model and its MIDAS Objects
Thus finally supporting all three kinds of dynamic objects.
If I receive feed back (here in the comments), then I will try to find a company who sponsors a meeting room and the WiFi equipment for the test session.
