This week’s Wonderland Wednesday session will be a bit different from others. Taking an idea originally proposed by community member Morris Ford, we’ll be using the newest version of Wonderland to work together to build “Wondertown.” I’ll start things off by running a short brainstorming session on how best to organize the space and then I’ll providing some tips on finding models from the Google 3D Warehouse that perform well in Wonderland. After that, the group will break up into teams of two or three people and each group will work to create a piece of Wondertown. I don’t expect that we’ll finish the project in one session, but I’m hoping we can get a good start.
We have started using Facebook to organize Open Wonderland community events, so please visit the Wonderland Wednesday event page for the complete announcement. We’d appreciate it if you could RSVP so we have an idea of how many people to expect, but you’re always welcome to join even if you didn’t RSVP. If you plan to join us, please download and install Google SketchUp if you do not already have your own copy. Also, we ask that everyone participating also join the #wonderland chat channel on irc.freenode.net. This enables us to communicate with everyone in case we run into any problems or need to make any last minute server changes. For example, if we have too many people interested in this session, we’ll start up another server and break into two groups.
