Cybalounge Building.  Combining primitivesInstructions for how to build a compound object in Cybalounge by putting simple prims togetherChair construction completedBut it’s not a chair yet.Assembled, but not completed.-For fancier things, import from OpenSim,As with this cabin*******************************************************************(More after the break, scroll down!)********************************************************************** Metaverse events, current and upcomingArt of the Artists: [email protected] Machinima Challenge (L$350,000 Prize Pool) Create a film with a work of art.A web page you can walk intoHypergrid Writer’s CommunityIMA Blog3D web-worlds of the browser (G+ community)Mal Burns: Inworld ReviewTry a browser-based virtual worldSelby’s daily news collection:  Virtual worlds are real   Virtual Outworlding news collection Events on the Hypergrid: HYPEventsEntertainment on the HypergridHYPERGRID EVENTSDestination guide: OpenSimWorldHyperica, Directory of Opensimulator hypergrid destinationsOpensim AAM Virtual PerformersWELCOME TO SEANCHAI LIBRARIESVirtual world G+ communities:  Communities virtual worlds G+In a virtual world, your deodorant never fails.*************************************************Start building?Not exactly.  Start planning.The seat will be the main element, so how big should it be?I measured my own chair–the one I sit on to write. Conveniently, I have a tape measure that measures in centimeters.(If you don’t, remember that Google does conversions.)With a little adjustment for simplicity, the dimensions were:Height 50 cmWidth 50 cmDepth 50 cmI will want to paint it.. So I look in HTML Color Picker and chooseYellow:  #ffff00Blue:  0000ffLower is best darker, so I will make the seat blue. The arms and back will be yellow.Now I can make the seatMain element created, sized, and paintedClick image to enlargeNext make the armsI want the other parts of the chair to be child objects of the seat.So I will try to remember to click the seat before I create each part.That first selects the seat and then creates a child object of the seat  The arms need to come about 30 cm above the seat, So I make them 80 cm. tall and 12 cm. wide and 50 cm, deep.The location of an object is its center on each dimension.A child object is positioned relative to the parentTo position the right arm laterally, I figure the distance between the centers.That is half the width of the seat plus half the width of the arm.25+6 =31 centimeters between centers on the width dimension.Relative positioning sets the center of the parent prim at 0,0,0.So the other arm must be offset by -31 centimeters.I planned for the arms to rise 30 centimeters above the seat.That means its center will rise 15 cm. above the seat center.And I want to paint the arms Yellow:  #ffff00 Chair arms made and positionedClick image to enlargeLast, make the backI pick 100 cm. for the height of the back.Width is 50 cm to match the seat, depth is 12 cm. like the arms.Afterthought: I saw that it would look better if the back also covered the arms, so I added 24 cm to the width of the back.Back is 100 cm. in height.  Center of back is 50 cm. up.Center of seat is 25 cm. up, so back is +25 cm up relative to seatDepth of back is 12 cm. Distance between centers is 31 cm. againBut this time on the depth dimension.  Paint: Yellow:  #ffff00Back made and positionedSelected items are lighter in colorBut it is not a chair yet.  The pieces are cut out and assembled.Now I need to glue the pieces together.In the next episode I will show how to glue the pieces and what that means to you.Building in CybaloungeCybalounge Home PageArticles about web-worlds in this blogHow to start building in Cybalounge, a roadmap for beginners  Building in Cybalounge, Roadmap 2: Textures, etc.Building in Cybalounge: Labels and signsWeb-worlds: Cybalounge building: location settingsBuilding in Cybalounge: HTML page prim: Put the web in your web-worldNonprofit web-world message board.
