Super Fun Things in a Super Fun Place

What fun things did I do on OSgrid this past week?

Each week I am going to try to share some of the fun experiences I had on OSgrid. It’s not a promise, it’s more like “in a perfect world I will” kinda thing. I will do my best, but I am inherently imperfect and kind of flighty so we’ll see how it goes. LOL! Now, on to this week’s fun!

Speedbuilding

Linda and I attended the weekly speedbuilding event held on the OSG recreation sim, and observed rather than participated. What a good time! Builders and spectators alike were thoroughly enjoying themselves, socializing, joking around, cheering and encouraging the builders. The theme was “Something Geeky!” Here are some photos of the goodies they made. P.S. I couldn’t remember who all made what, so if you know please leave a comment and I will properly label their creation! Thanks!

Fu Barr’s Building Master Class

Sunday afternoon was spent attending a free building class, graciously given by Fu Barr. If you don’t know Fu, he is some kind of prim bending genius. I get the feeling he just sees things differently and that enables him to create incredible shapes and builds out of regular, everyday prims, rather than relying on sculpts. Class time was spent learning how to use the shift+drag rotate technique to create and incredibly beautiful gazebo. Fu was also kind enough to take an extra 20 minutes at the end of the class to show a few of us how to create a roof that doesn’t look as chunky, or have the funky texture issues that using taper can cause. I will definitely be implementing my new skills in my next build. Thank you Fu!

PrimWords

Have you ever played Pictionary?? I used to love that game when I was a kid, it’s pure silly, creative fun! Now imagine that game, using prims instead of a pen and a pencil. That, my friends, is Primwords. Every Sunday evening at the recreation region one of the OSgrid Admins hosts a game, and let me tell you… I was in stitches. Even though I didn’t participate this week because I had to head out early, I enjoyed myself none-the-less. There is a comfortable camaraderie in this group that just gives the soul a great big does of “happy!”

What’s in store for this week? I dunno! That’s the beauty of virtual worlds, anything can happen.

      It was an hour I believe. Everything had to be yours and made in that time limit, textures, sculpts, everything. 🙂 I loved the pocket too, but especially the nerdy glasses! She gave me a pair to wear. *points to my photo*
