For some reason it's whenever I head out to the US for the Federal Consortium of Virtual Worlds event that my mind (and time) turns to Traveller - something to do with all that time spent in Starports, sorry Airports.
I think I might bin the Real Time bit though - just can't stand the thought of being stuck in jump space for a week!
The time just isn't there to do an app like Port2Jump at the moment (and my Empress Minerva model in SL is half built and awaiting transfer to OpenSim. So thought I might try something simpler - turning the iPad into a C21 Referees Screen. Browser based first.
The above screenshot shows the Traveller Map (from TravellerMap.com) rendered inside our Datascape in Second Life. You can pan and zoom the map just as on the web, and even plot locations on it. We might later look at how to link it to atlas and UWP data. The RSS screens rounds the edge show the GURPS TNS news feed, and the feed from the TravellerMap site. TravellerMap was created by Joshua Linden, who works for Linden Lab - the guys who created Second Life.
When not used for Traveller Datascape has a more serious use for showing geocoded, 3D, RSS and almost any other sort of data on a chosen topic.
