CAVECON: CAVCON Awareness Party, July 22-28th
Explorers are raising awareness of the CAVCON meter (MOULa's financial health) this week. A number of events have been scheduled already and the organizers are looking for more.
If you are interested in hosting or participating in any of these events, join in the discussion on the Myst Online forums!
Here are a few details shared with us by submitter Michelle Marquise:
We will have a 24/7 CAVECON starting on July 22 thru 28th. We very much would love for everyone to participate. This event will be for all countries. Events can overlap so everyone can participate! Listed below is access to my calendar. Events will be posted there. It is blank right now and should fill up quickly. So please email me the name of your event, time, time zone and location in Uru, SL or OS Grid.
NOTE: Cyan has since deleted the announcement made in the original thread. Link now goes to Chogon's explanation.
Shorah, fellow cave-dwellers!
A much-anticipated update about the Myst movie was posted today by Isaac Testerman. It's a long and detailed account, and here are the major points that were mentioned:
- A movie adaptation of the "Book of Ti'ana" would be very hard to use to start a potential franchise, so they've gone back to the drawing board for a story.
- Adrian has stepped away from the project completely, making Isaac the lead producer.
- Cyan's contract with MFG was expiring, and they chose not to renew it. Instead, Delve Films (Isaac's company) purchased the option.
- Another big-name Hollywood producer has joined them, along with Hunt Lowry and Mark Johnson.
- Other things are in the works other than a Myst movie, on multiple audio/visual/interactive platforms to bring in new fans.
- The Myst movie site probably won't be fixed soon due to legal issues.
So there you go. Some signs of life for the first time in months! And if you want to read the full update, read the MOULa forum announcement here.
Stay tuned for the latest developments!
Lyrositor announced yesterday the public unveiling of his latest project, Lyrobot, an artificial intelligence akin to OHBot and serving in The Fun House. It can accept a range of Fun House-specific commands, but can also interact at a basic level with other explorers, do math, predict portal times, link people to him automatically, and be controlled through his web interface, featuring Lyroscope (a live-time feed of what Lyrobot is seeing), the Age Chat (a web chat with Uru through Lyrobot), the KI Registry (vastly similar to the KI Directory), and a web control interface for illusions in The Fun House.
As of this day, Lyrobot is currently at version 1.0.1, and is comparatively limited when likened with OHBot; however, new features are being actively added by Lyrositor, and Lyrobot might eventually catch up to him. Lyrobot can usually be found in The Fun House, if he is online, which is not always guaranteed.
Mysterium is almost upon us, and you know that that means...
"Person on a chair!!"
...well, yes... but that's not what I was talking about, silly peanut gallery. It is time to gather up Paper People!
For all you poor, deprived souls who won't be able to join us in person this year, please send us a picture of yourself, your Uru avvie, or some other reasonable 2 dimensional facimilie to email@example.com so you can be with us in dead-tree spirit.
Shorah, everyone! Sitting in the middle of summer did not stop this month's All Guilds Meeting, and this one had a couple of big developments! Of course, we present the usual raw and cleansed chatlogs and a summary of all that went down.
Mac and rarified were first up for OU. There was a bit of a rough time recently as wildfires in the midwestern United States caused the Minkata shard to shut down for awhile (as rarified had to evacuate his home), but thankfully, not only was his home spared, but (less importantly by comparison, of course) he was able to reconstitute everything in record time thanks to some earlier planning. Bug fixes and testing continue, with a mention of another stress test party some time soon.
