Designing spii

Rather than individuals working for individual gain we ought to be working as a community for the benefit of everyone in the community...

Rather than replicating real life, with shops, offices, and living spaces that only seek to support themselves, we can build a community which progresses, which ends up doing things, and enjoying doing them.

These builds / areas have been suggested

  • Community centre(Hey its mars, once again this will have a freeby shop on the ground floor.)
  • Freebie store - Check out more
  • Government building
  • Flexible area such as an arena
  • Places to meet informally eg café, Zen garden, plaza
  • Places to meet more formally
  • Function room
  • Think tank
  • Second Steps centre
  • AI centre
  • Marina
  • Social club
  • Sports area
  • Main street
  • Holodeck
  • Ecosystem
  • Nature reserve
  • Open / green spaces
  • Jungle / rainforest
  • Rivers
  • Benches
  • Forest / mini-island for weapons


  • Teleports
  • Lesson boards
  • Information
  • Help buttons

Problem with some previous builds

  • Difficult to navigate
  • Difficult to find exits / entrances
  • Too many prims
  • Seemed to be owned by individuals, rather than the community
  • Underused
  • Claustrophobic
  • Duplication of effort
  • Hard to find in the sky
  • Too many scripts potentially slow things down

Bigger questions

  • What sort of environment do we want to spend our time in?
  • What do we want to achieve? What are we doing here?
  • Do we need walls? Why?
  • Do we need weapons? Why?
  • Do we each need our own territory? Why?
  • How can we work together as a community to create what we need>
  • How do we balance form and beauty?
  • How do we make the island appear as a whole with a coherent design? Do we want to do this?

Web links for ideas

A report on the island of Svarga on the main grid, which is a fantastic place with a fully functioning ecosystem: weather, pollen, insects, creatures...

On a smaller scale, people have produced butterflies

Thinking along AI lines, they have begun to develop ants:

Other people have been getting fish to evolve

See I think that this is better for the main street:

Community Centre AI Emporium Governing Building



Sandbox Park Forest

(ps. the government are looking into getting a new sandbox, but slightly smaller)

Faz - some good ideas. Remember, we can't just go around building everything huge though, the island
may be bigger but not by too much.
