Hi folks,

The Tuesday Night Developers Meeting is scheduled tonight starting at 6PM on the Caligari Clock (web link below) and as usual can be expected to run several hours... usually 5 to 7 in fact!:p

For those of you who have been to one of these we do hope to see you there tonight and feel free to bring anything with you which you may wish to share with us all, whether scripts, objects, concepts or whatever! There will be ample opportunity to share anything there so by all means please avail yourselves of the opportunity.

For those of you who have NOT been there, be sure to follow the instructions below and drop in there tonight... it is always an interesting and fun event, where we have a brand new portal scene we all romp around in each Tuesday Night and lots of folks drop in with items and info to share. It is also an especially appropriate occasion to ask for any help with scripting and or shared space or immersive desktop scene development work.

It is also just a heck of a lot of fun, so if for no other reason please do stop in for that one at least!:D

I usually have "teaser" screenshots of the new scene which I pop in here before the show starts... but tonight I have something VERY unusual I want to surprise everyone with completely so I will not be showing previews this time.... I can tell you this though....
we will all be meeting tonight high up in the sky on a sunny day together.. inside the calyx of an orchid.:D

There are many ways to get there this week including three new ones, so here they are and I'll be seeing all you folks in a few hours there as usual!

Until then...

For those with an existing truePlace password:

Option 1: Go to the following web page and look for the "Scripting Live!" links for either truePlay or trueSpace then click the one you wish to use.

http://www.caligari.com/birdsofafeather.asp (http://www.caligari.com/birdsofafeather.asp)

Option 2: Download the scripted objects which I created (in the following forum posts) and click them to be taken there.

For trueSpace 7.51, 7.5, and the TS Demo:

I created a new object for trueSpace7.5x users who are either unfamiliar with setting the Network Server and Portal Settings (the Demo users for instance) or are like me and just get tired of doing it manually when you are in a rush. Just load this puppy into Workspace or any scene and then click on it, it will automatically (and harmlessly) reset your current Network Server and Portal Settings (which you can do yourself manually anytime if you wish) to match "The Scriptorium" where our Meetings are held, and it will bring up the standard Shared Space "Login" Dialog to connect you right to us.

For truePlay Users:

for truePlay users - download and then open in truePlay and click on the green book in the scene.

For those WITHOUT an existing truePlace password:

(1) Getting a Password and Username to enter truePlaces:

(Our Tuesday Night Meeting is held inside a truePlace Portal (#1212) and you will need both a Password and Username to enter there which is different from your Caligari Customer Password and Username. Also be sure to get your truePlace Password and Username during Caligari business hours well before the meeting begins)


(2) Instruction Page on Port Address Settings in trueSpace 7.5x:

(Note that the following instructions show you how to set the portal entry point in trueSpace to the truePlace Meetingroom (tpportal 1111) where once you arrive you will find an easel with an image on it which says "click here to enter the Scriptorium," and one you click on that image you will be instantly transported to the actual Script Developers Meeting held in tpportal 1212)


(3) truePlace "Scripting Live1" Page: (with countdown timer in PST):

(This is the Caligari Countdown Timer and Info Page for our Tuesday Meetings)


(4) The "connect to shared space" icon in truSpace7.5x:

The "connect to shared space" icon in trueSpace7.5x looks like two Avatars facing each other (ie: sharing space).

When you are all set and ready to connect you just need to click the appropriate icon in trueSpace and then enter your truePlaces Username and Password into the Dialog Box which will then pop up, then hit the "connect" button on the Dialog Box.

See you there folks!

Oh, one other thing....

There have been rumors floating around about a certain "shark" that has a tendency to seek out Avatars in shared space.


Tonight there will be a waterplane and groundplane below the Flowers, so if you spot it tonight you will have a safe place to flee to.:D
