    Yeah something weird happened with the collider on the Yuma, we're gonna fix that over the weekend. Obviously there's part of us that wants to rush and make all these changes right away, but honestly this project almost killed all of us. We need a couple days away from the computer. The Yuma IS in there though and looks decent, we do need to enhance the lighting effects though--no disco shark yet or anything.

    http://vration.com

    This will work best in just about any browser but Chrome (it's a shame, I love Chrome myself, but it just doesn't play well with our system). The idea is to be able to stroll the fields once more and to be able to physically place photo albums throughout the world. You have to install a little plugin called the Unity Webplayer in order to make it work, I promise it's totally safe, used by millions worldwide. Full details of how you move around and do things are written out on the main page. You can switch between Daytime, Sunset, and Nighttime views (the Nighttime lighting is quite lush).

    I hope you'll all enjoy it, feel free to reply with all commentary, positive or otherwise. A breakdown of the full control scheme is on the main page.

    Please share it, please use it, etc. Took a lot of work to make this thing happen.



    Here's a little instructional YouTube to help explain the control system:

    I got it to work briefly on a mac using Chrome. I wasn't able to get out of the main entry way before it froze but the environment had a nice design to it.

    So now that this is public can we start mocking it?

    Wtf is the point of this? Am I just supposed to lose myself in a virtual Coachella? Can I create a character like WoW then run around tossing Devins?

    Yeah, Macs + Chrome always equal trouble. Safari or Firefox SHOULD work, for the most part. We're gonna try and bust out some of the Mac performance issues over the weekend.

    I realize most everybody is still at work and stuff, but if y'all could get some pictures up and into the world tonight I'd be thoroughly obliged. Once we start getting this place full of albums, it's really going to come alive. Just being able to walk around and see everybody else's pictures floating around will give a nice feeling of actually being at Coachella, or at least that's the theory. Also next week, campgrounds should be live so groups like DE and others can keep big group stores of all their camp fun times.

    Geographical photo sharing. There's also some filtering aspects we haven't quite had time to implement yet. But the premise is this--you create photo albums and physically place them where you were when you took the pictures (obviously a lot of this is particularly for people who are serious photo junkies and take pictures all over Coachella), and then you can assign which Artist the pictures were of. In the next update to be rolled out, you'll be able to filter out albums by the Artist or by each Art Installation. So if you really loved a particular set and want to be able to just see everyone's pictures of that one performance, you'll be able to use the filter (not yet in place) to filter out all other albums and browse through all the pictures everyone took of that set, or of a particular art piece you liked. Obviously there's some social applications to also be added--being able to easily search for specific friends photos, etc. It's coming.

    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    It is a legitimate question though and I'll open up the floor to frank discussion, Stinkbutt raises a point--so, we made this thing... do we give a shit? Or do you, more specifically? What's missing? We might be able to oblige you. This is an evolving thing, new features will be coming... but do we give a fuck?

    It's working for me on a mac with firefox, my uploads don't seem to be showing up though. Still, this is really fucking cool and I had fun playing around with it. It would be cool to get some social functions, but I'm not sure what that would look like.

    Oh yeah sorry--one other bug is it seems like after the upload is finished, some users have to hit Logout and then Login again for it to refresh. It was a rushed fix we had to put in place because of an issue with making that toolbar hideable. Sorry for not mentioning that earlier.

    Maybe social interaction? A Sim like avatar meets Instagram or chat room. I dunno. Just throwing shit out. I'm serious about the Festival Tycoon thing. There should be some kind of game/interaction that keeps us returning.

    Hmm... let me ponder on that and think what maybe we could do with it.

    Yeah we need some method of contacting/sharing more directly. Round 2.0

    Perhaps we could visit other attendees albums at different locations when we arrive at an icon? Coachella Stage Pics, Gobi Pics, Heineken House pics and so on

    A lot of the time it won't even let me upload. I get this error "Error when initialize uploader : Ox19b.getComputedStyle(...) is null".

    I also think some music would make it come alive even more.

    No, I'm legitimately asking the board at large. We have a platform here we can do a lot with, and I'm realizing more and more that while we can always keep acquiring new users... how many times will a given user come back once they've already had a look around, even if we had a BUNCH of pictures already in there?

    I don't need any unneeded kind words, I'm looking for genuine reaction. Trying to build something here that can best recreate the experience of being at the festival in useful ways. So what else can we work in here? Would a system where you could link out albums to each other so that, say Stinkbutt, you, Salah, and like four other people all saw [some great act]. You all loved it. Suppose Salah sent you a link to the album that has all of his photos of that set in it, and hypothetically you took a bunch yourself. Would you give a shit about contributing to that album and inviting the other people at the set with you to do it as well, that way you could have this content system that isn't just YOUR photos of Coachella, but the photos of you and all the people you Coachella'd with? Does that make more sense?

    I realize there's a slight functional lacking in the realm of "okay, but how do I make that connection? How do we find each others' albums, even if we do want to collaborate on them?" We're working on that. But suppose it WAS already working, you could send each other links to Albums and drop each of your photos in there and then the whole group has access to it.

    Do you give a fuck about that premise? Asking sincerely.

    Also, Stinky, you camp, right? Would that same principle using overhead photos of the campgrounds so that you could zoom in and create a group album directly over your cars/tents be something you would give a fuck about?

    I'm interested in thoughts. This was something of a lark of passion for Coachella. But I mean, that doesn't mean my partners and I want to keep pumping money into an idea if it just fundamentally produces a "Meh" in 90 percent of even serious Coachella fans.

    This is really cool! The idea of having youtube streams on the jumbo-tron screens will be a nice touch, too.

    Was this sort of built from the ground up, or was it made from software where anyone can design their own "world" ?

    Everything had to be built custom. It's a lot of hours to model all those things and make them look real. It ain't easy. I'm trying to wrap my mind around something the other guy had mentioned about Festival Tycoon. Maybe we could make it so you could at least swap out different art pieces from various years of Coachella, but that's gonna be a lot of work, particularly to do the really cool pieces.

    I agree that the having a chat window up to show who is on the grounds is a great idea, if we could somehow see each other or our avatars moving around that would be fun. Doesn't have to be a game per se, but just a means to see who is online.
