still sufferring from headache..but a joyful one!

i got my first choice in FYP selection!

Here’s my project!

Virtual life in the virtual campus of NTU.
Proj Summary Virtual Campus of NTU [1] is a shared virtual world built with Virtual Reality Modeling Language [2] and Blaxxun Contact 7 Communication Platform [3]. It is a virtual model of the real campus of Nanyang Technological University. In this cyberspace, visitors can turn themselves into virtually anything. Some choose to look like fancy-dressed people, some turn themselves into sports cars, and some appear as sparkling clouds or fire-balls. There are also bots (robots) living in the Virtual Campus. These are avatars of students and professors who walk back and fourth between lecture theatres, libraries, and student hostels. There are also birds hovering in the sky and cars riding by the roads.

In this project, the student has to design and develop an artificial life in the virtual campus which will be synchronously and asynchronously available for different users. The existing 3D avatar library of the virtual campus is to be extended and further improved. Crowds of the avatars are to be programmed to move to the designated directions from time-to-time and according to the actual timing for different activities such as lectures, functions, physical exercises, studying, leisure, etc. The designed models should be able to animate a large number of avatars while still maintaining the interactivity of the multi-user virtual environment.
Adding an element of fun to this virtual life by implementing VRML game components is yet another possible direction of this project.
