I've just come accross a cool thingy for making 3D web pages called 3DML. It is kind of like a mix between working with tilesets and HTML.

It is prety easy to use, maybe a little easier than HTML. It could be a good beginners tool, or something for someone who wants to have a 3D web page.

If anyone is interested, they can find out more at the website, http://www.flatland.net

Yeah, I know .

I'm hoping that I'll be able to make a game/website with it. Wouldn't that be great if someday, the internet was just a huge 3D video game, and It just kept going and going and going, and there'd be all kinds of sites with different game modes in them, like first you are playing a FPS, then you go through a doorway, and all the sudden you are playing an RPG. That would definately be different.

Yeah, I had an idea for something like that once. Imagine a huge mansion or museum filled with stuff that you can explore and chat in. Then there'd be an art gallery where all you have to do is walk though the pictures and "step into" the story, Then there'd be a library where you can pick a book off the shelf and literaly walk into the book as well and play the story.

Very cool.

Hey, Shawn! Good to see you! I've been wondering about you and where you were at -- since shortly after the CGDC last year, I hadn't heard much from you. Glad to see you're still around -- things going well?

Not to hijack this thread completely, this reminds me of Panda3D, which is an open-source 3D engine that Disney developed and used in their MMORPG Toontown Online.

Cheers!

The game engine I use has a web plug-in that lets you play in it online. Unfortinetly for now its Mac only but when the PC plug in is released I'll give a 3D web site a shot. Its definetly a cool idea Jeff

@Clint: Hi Clint! Yeah, it has been a while. Until around December I've been offline for the most part, trying to overcome an fantasy/internet addiction. It was prety bad for the first few monthts, since I wasn't all that sure about what to do with reality, plus I was frightened around people.

Starting in January, I've been taking online classes, majoring in Media Arts and Animation, and has been a great step forward to me. Even though it is online, it has actually helped me to move away from the associating the computer with a fantasy escape and helps me build some great skills for the future (and hopefuly present ).

And I'll have to look into Panda 3D .

@Ereon: That idea is awesome! It actually looks similar to the concept presented in your signature image with the book and portal.

Kind of. It is more like a first person video game than anything, though it is kind of limited. The file sizes are really small though, so it is perfect for the web, even for people on 56k (like me XD).

Yeah, thats a definite drawback. I'd love for it to just run off of the browser without installing anything. That way people could play it while visiting the library or on any other PC that the owner doesn't like stuff installed on. I'm sure it'd keep it more open for everyone.
