Field Trip: Blue Mars

Estimated reading time: 1 minutes — Second Life is, famously, all about “UGC” – User Generated Content; WoW is all about amazing developer made content; Blue Mars tries to split the UGC difference with Developer Class and Consumer Class.

hahaha, It's mee, VeeBee in Blue Mars!

Blue Mars Field Trip!!

Second Life focuses on UGC, User Generated Content, WoW is a lot about amazing developer created content, and Blue Mars tries to split the UGC difference with a Developer Class of users and a Consumer Class of users. Whether such “apartheid” is productive or not we can think about later, but either way it seems like a great time for a Blue Mars field trip!

VB/CO Goes 2 Blue Mars!

Blue Mars

As far as I’m currently aware, there aren’t the same WoW Server / Race / Class sorts of issues. I think you just sign up and we can find each other.

Blue Mars runs on Windows XP, Vista or 7 in 32 or 64-bit mode. Unfortunately, BM doesn’t run on Macs! 🙁
Or “runs on Mac via Boot Camp.” Of course this will be a problem for our Mac friends! But we have had a number of requests for a BM field trip, so it seems like we should give it a shot. Hopefully our Mac Users can, uh, “borrow a PC from work” or log-in from a friend’s house…

Their spex page seems to be compatible with a nice spread of nVidia & ATI Video Cards.

I’ll observe our standard field trip procedure and “Vaneeesa Blaylock” will also be available in Second Life to help anyone trying to get set-up or find the gang in BM.
