Hi,

After searching the wiki for some time I finally found out where the sandbox is in Alpha.  It's not clear in Schome Park, and there are signs that take me to the corner of beta where there's a half finished building...

Could we make some clear in-world signs, it's very confusing for new peeps.

Also, the tutorial's are in Beta, so a teleporter there and maybe a newbie list of 'things to do' might be more helpful for those who haven't used the software before...

Thanks,

Prime

Brilliant ideas! Totally agree.

The sandbox used to be somewhere else when I joined, and I remember that there were signs around at that time.

Newbie's 'things to do' list would be useful too, though of course this could be on the wiki (with a link to the wiki page from Schome Park), which would make it easier for newbies (and others )to add their own thoughts and comments. When I joined all the tutorials were in the 'Second Steps' area, and we had organised some newbie's induction sessions, so I was ably shown around by experienced Schomers and Staff.

In the past we talked about making a tour HUD or similar, which would be good.

I also think that some maps would be useful. Does anyone know of a way to create maps easily?

I think I joined roughly the same time as Amba, and the sandbox was central then, with the little 'Sandbox' signs around it. But now with the terraforming the sandbox is permanently changing shape..

Is there a way to get text appearing on a board inside the game without uploading images?

If it's easily editable (sp?) then people can add greetings and public messages to each other _inside Schome_, additional boards can be quickly changed and allow signposts and a sight seeing path for newbies.

I've also seen the wiki pages on boards within the software but have no idea if these are uploaded screenshots or something else....

(You might have noticed I tend to ramble on and make up what i'm saying as i type, sorry if it's difficult to follow at times :P  )

Or you can use llSetText() - you can put *loads* more info on a single prim with that :P

So is there a way to show clear text (in our case advice) without someone clicking on something; remember the point is to give people 'signposts' to what they can achieve; without knowing _anything_ about the second life interface?

They should still be somewhere in Schoming Pidgeon's inventory, I guess.

We bought the post-it board in a shop on the Main Grid, and I think it wasn't copiable, so we'd need to track it down.

...

The wiki pages (Schome Park Events page) are displayed by setting the media url for the parcel of land to point at that web page. If you are an officer in a group that has had land deeded to it then you can set the media url to anything url you like (eg web page, music file, video clip) - you then associate that with a particular texture and wherever that texture appears on that parcel of land that media url will 'play' (assuming you have the play media turned on in your settings).

That is about as clear as gibberish ... hope it helps!  ::)
