The new hypergrid at 2worlds2go. Some help for the grid admin.

newhg

The new hypergrid is up and I finally have some time to write something. All the islands are stable now and I can jump in and out to other grids. But it was 5 days of hard work to figure out how to set it up. There is not much documentation to help. The grid is of course behind a router and firewall and is a local grid connect to internet. This creates a lot of problems if you want to connect both inside the network and outside.

Helpful things I have learned.

-- You need a router that can transfer the communication to the different Sims and you need to know how to setup port forwarding.

-- I think you need a domain where you can setup subdomains. Anyway this is how I got it to work. The subdomains do not do much on the internet its for the internal network. The big problem is that a internal network and the internet works the same way but the computers in the internal network do not have any internet IP addresses. And you want to be able to do stuff on the islands even if you are behind the firewall. With a subdomain it is possible for the internal workstations to find for example the sandbox. Then its address is http://sandbox.2worlds2go.eu not much use on the internet for that there is the routers port forwarding.

-- Inside the network you need your own DNS server to solve the network addresses in the internal network. I do not think this is necessary more than for the internal network. If your not working with computers setting up a DNS server is like running in to a wall. Ask someone who knows.

Well, well.

As I said it took me a week to figure it out. Setting up a single island really work right out of the box. But when you get it going it is easy to ad more Sims.

Of course this is a working grid so most of the Sims are only up when someone is working on them. The grid address is http://hg.2worlds2go.eu:8002 But there are some restrictions because we have a terrible internet connection being all out in the Swedish landscape. You can see more on http://2worlds2go.eu. Sometimes the High Fidelity server is running on the sandbox and slow things down it is a Alfa you know.

  • Once more partying in Second life.

    Long time since i where out partying in Second life. But i had really a good time and i where up way to late as the Dj just keept on playing. Second life is still fun. But i have to move again as more and more islands disapper. Well yesterday where all about fun.

  • Euro truck simulator 2, TruckersMP, VorpX, Oculus rift

    Finally I got some of my hardware to work and I have had a fun afternoon honking at trucks while driving slowly in my new car around Scandinavia. The landscape is just beautiful and the roads nice. I will have some coffee and then it is onward to the continent.

    This is so much fun.

  • Playing Adrift for a few hours.

    First time i really go deep inside a VR game. Well i got sick for a few times. But it works in the game because i suppose i would if i was trapped in a space station and moved around to much. It is a nice touch. Keep still in game to not get sick. It is a cool game and scary. Feeling of being there is nice.

    So you can do a nice VR game without killing things. I like that.

  • Back in to Sansar. Today Bryn Oh.

    Visited An evening at the Ballet by Bryn Oh. Not easy to find something you like. Bryn Oh is one of my fav artists in SL and she do not dissapoint. Like several tableau with a strong feeling of being in the theatre. I liked it.

     

    Visited some other nice places but the feeling of being alone is creeping up on you. When i visited Astro Port there was a avatar just standing there and when in VR that is just scary.
