The car is pretty much the main focus for our event. The user will create their own car, almost like in a soap-box derby, then race it. Simple really. Which is more can be said for the car initially!
Using the basic tutorial we have each got at least a basic car running that acts like a car, but may actually look like a little sit in box!
But with more development our cars will take shape and look a bit better.
A thing to note is that avatars can give away things to other avatars, so we are also able to now send objects (including cars) to each other which has helped when struggling with the script and making sure the car drives properly.
Despite this, ideally we want the users of the event to construct their own car themselves to bring a sense of creativity and individuality into the event as we will be able to direct them to the website we used and they can then spend 4/5mins constructing their own car.
Rich emailed the rest of our stage group also doing their own second life events and we asked if they would be able to participate in our event to which we hope a few of them will.
