From OpenSimulator

Howdy :)

I'm a physicist at heart but do software development for a living. I've been programming since the age of 10 and really enjoy it. I've got a Master's Degree in Computer Science and in spite of my education spelling continues to be my weakest skill lol. I see there's no spell checker in this wiki editor so I'll probably be mis-spelling a lot of words. I'll appologize in advance for that :)

Lately I've been focused on writting a book but find I really need something else to focus my creativity on. Since I used to be an MMORPG junky I thought I would try to create my own. This is what's brought me to OpenSimulator. Not sure if I can pull it off, but it should be a fun hobby :)

My MMORPG experience is extensive. I started with AC (Asheron's Call), played EQ (Ever Quest) for a while, moved onto Toon Town (kids game, but fun none the less), picked up EQ II, and finally spent the last 5 years on WOW (World of Warcraft). Both EQ and WOW entertained me and frustrated me at the same time. I'm hoping to create an MMORPG that's purely entertaining.

I've made my way over to OpenSimulator after doing a lot of research on 3D engines. There's a few free 3D engines out there, but they lack the network connectivity I was looking for and persistant inventories. OpenSimulator seems to have what I need and a lot more. I'm expecially interested in being able to empower other MMORPG fans to create their own worlds, cities, homes, or dungeons. Wish me luck!
