I have come to a decision! Since moving all the painting updates to my new website (not visited yet??) this blogspot has been hanging around a bit. I have decided to bring this back to life, but closely coupled to the website. As the website is on a shared server, there is no simple way to provide a comment service, and I don't want to reinvent one if I don't have to. So I am going to redo this blogspot to follow the page structure of my website so that it will allow comments to be added and so that it feels as joined up as possible. That means that I will be deleting all the pages I have done here and adding new ones that link up to the website.

Here we go - I'm off on a new adventure. I have done street scenes a few times. "Street Levels" was an experiment in impersonating a ravine. "A Shopping Street" tried to capture something of a nebulous town centre. Then I did two paintings from real streets: one in Bellagio and the other in Prague. This one is from the imagination and is to be a street in the rain. I may rename the painting as such. I tried this before and failed.

I have ben working hard at putting in a VR menu for selecting the page skin. This allows switching to a more standard HTML page. I had a VR flower hanging around, so I decided to recycle it for the job.
I have also been aligning the VR skin with the graphic skin (= standard HTML page) for the home page and the history room. The content now replicates on both, however, there is still a lot of work to get the graphic skin to use the available space properly.
Lately I have been working on a VR book simulation. Particularly as I am going to be putting in a fair amount of text, there is a limit to the number of sheets of paper I can leave lying around. A book is clearly a lot of work so was thinking of avoiding it. However, I finally got my head around how to break up one of my terribly-overloaded constructs and that made the book idea much easier. Still lots of glitches in it, and one piece of (small) extra functionality to add to get it to work, but it is finally coming together.
There are lots of items of functionality I have backed up, but the only functionality left now before first release is the reactive page handling. After that, it is just the remaining content.

I thought I'd have a bit of a moan. This is not really a project, so it's a bit outside of my "Mission Statement", but.....
Just to point out our art club's annual summer exhibition: Virtual Summer 2020 Yes, virtual, as everything else is currently banned....
This will be my last entry for a while as I concentrate on a replacement. Blogger has been useful to get this started, but it is not enabli...
