3D Virtual Building Constructions From ActiveWorlds 000
This Section will detail some of the Virtual
Construction projects I have been building in Active Worlds that Anyone that
has Activeworlds installed can visit. Please note this is a new section and
the page layout is under construction, and will not be the final design. I
begin this page with The Tower project I have been building that relates to
the style of this website, of course the Tower is better to visit than by
just viewing these screenshots. Like they say Rome was not built in a day,
well the structure of the tower was all up in only a couple of days, I am
still fitting out the complex. One thing must be said that as this virtual
world does have something known as a building inspector so there are limits
however there are also some ways to work around them within reason, though
as I would have liked to build the tower as tall as my 3d renders, I had to
stop at 10 floors in case the building inspector limit stopped me from furnishing
even my virtual Apartment, top floor. These are from the world: Alphaworld
this world is the oldest and the biggest in the activeworlds Galaxy.
For an explanation on what is this Activeworlds
I have abit of an explanation here
A new addition aswell as the many assorted
builds I do as per below with objects, I am also a 3D Modeler and now have
begun creating many different ranges, and some sets are available for certain
see this page for the latest models and sets I have produced for activeworlds,
"Intramuros" ( Old Manila,
The historic recreation of the old Spanish
Walled city of Intramuros as it was before WW2 when it was referred to as
the "Jewel of the Orient". Based loosely about 1920's, featuring
several other structures before earthquakes took them down as well.
This information or research has derived
from many hours filtering through assorted photos and other info from online.
Bringing the old Jewel back to life virtually.
Other related Philippine builds in
Casa Tribunal 1899, Malolos, Philippines
A reconstruction of this historic Casa
as it was in 1899 and part of the surounding area, and how the interioir may
have looked like. References came from a couple of photos from its time and
photos of the burnt out ruins today after the remains had a fire in 2002,
photo refernces were sourced on the net.
Interactive Council Chambers
This setup is for the purpose of a set
as well as a place to meet and have actual worldly discussions as well as
to use for creating films on certain topics discussed on set.
It boasts many interactive features
and serves as an example to show another way AW can be used for.
Rebuild in Activeworlds of "Dixie
Square Mall" from the IL, USA, the same mall that the Blues Brothers
movie had smashed during the car chase sequence, the mall still stands 30
My recreation is based on how it was
generally when it was in its last years, though the Wonderfall for the Woolworths
court might be recreated replacing the later concrete triangles, fitted in
the 1970 renovation
The mall was open from 1966 - 1978 /
1979, (two other stores with external entrances remained open longer, closing
The actual mall in Harvey Il USA was
Demolished in june2012
Damortis Railway Station (Former)
With Dagapan a 100 year old steam engine
Old Paco Railway Station from Manila
A reconstruction of the Old Railway
Station called Paco that is over 100 years old, older than the Manila Townhall,
was nearly demolished in 1996 by a developer that had begun constructing a
Mall next to it.
The building was saved to a point, however
is still in a battle to be saved and currently the "Railway, Industrial
and Historic Society of the Philippines" (RIHSPI) is trying to raise
enough funds to purchase the site and restore the building to its old former
glory and utilise it as a museum.

Main Teleport center and catacombs
Teleports to all the builds I have done
in Activeworlds, but includes many more sections areas to explore, ancient
lost bases, interactive anatomy, interfaces,going deep, but how deep in the
extensive tunnel system of caves and caverns down there, right under Alphaworlds
surface, there is a surface entry too.
Other specialised builds in Alphaworld
Note theses are not models they are
constructed from Alphaworld objects, utilising scale and texture/masks as
Loosly based on the ancient Spanish
walled city "Intrumuros" in Manila
"The Ruins" from Talisay,
Negros Occidental, Philippines
This is a site that has been turned
into a tourist attraction and is open for wedening receptions and much more,
it is still owned by the Lacsan family and was built in 1923 by a suger barron,
was burnt by the us armed forces during ww2 to stop it being used by the Japanes
as a headquarters, its a beautifull structure and what you see here is what
is left of it, being built of concrete with heavy steal bars imbedded., I
have been faithfully trying to reconstruct the entire site as it is as per
the objects and textures that are in Alphaworld, working around cell restrictions,
which have been a battle to get around, but its getting there, enjoy these
screenshots, hope to one day be able to visit it someday in the future.
This is a work in progress as there
is still alot more to add, hope to finish it soon though
Currently under construction in my first
My new Classic Mansion
My Clasic Mansion gets a complete facelift
that it had been crying out for for awhile as the one in air on the mountain
was just not evolving the way I wanted it to be, Architecture resembles some
of the styles from the Phillippines as per the older Family homes.
A house I devoted
to a friend in the Philippines
The design of this house takes several
ideas from typical modern filipino house designs
As there are many object yards around
in activeworlds, I decided to build myself one as if it were a large hardware
and appartment store
Airport (New Bacolod-Silay Airport)
This is a reconstruction in activeworlds
of an airport that I was to be unless someething happens arrive at, near Silay,
Negros Occidental, Philippines, for my purposes of the reconstruction I renamed
it as per my 2nd main area as per Stanly, the closest town to it.
A forgotten old disused rail station
with a rail depot near by, also lost and forgotten, as you can see some parts
are falling apart it has seen better days as such
DSC Tower Located
A modern Mansion I had been building
also in Pippinville only 3 blocks away from the tower Which also includes
a helicopter, private tennis court, large entertainment area and pool etc.
The home know as the former "loveshack"
a design that was devoted to my previouse love, Located in "Cooperville" yes
in my own extensive area.
I still have to obtain more screenshots
for this place as I complete further sections and including other builds which
I have made many. Just so you know, my very first building I built in activeworlds
was over 10 years ago and still around as I have decided to keep it as its
now apart of history otherwise most of the surrounding buildings and structures
are being updated or replaced with better builds.. Enjoy the screenshots.

Here I will feature some of the builds
I have been adding there, I only have begun to build in Winter world recently
from july 2009
First off is a competition build I worked
on in July 2009 and came 3rd, I was part of a team of two however as my partner
had already won before the prizes in other builds I was left alone to build
the majority, so I could show off my skills.
Part of the competition involved the
construction of at least 2 working rides, such as my rollercoaster and the
merry go round, though I have also a tricky maze too with some secret rotating
Enjoy these screenshots below.
And the awards were given, these 2 screenshots
below I did not create the bigtop however this is where the awards ceromony
I won "3rd" place
Here is another of my personal projects
in winter, its of a typcal type of explorer vessel thats stuck in ice.
Here will be some of the views of

Another lost world from 2009 that no
longer exists sadly
It was a land of Fairys, Unicorns and
other mythological creatures, my contribution was a few overgrown ruins and
a stone circle with Unicorns.
This world as of August no longer exists
I had been as well modeling my own custom
models, here are a selection, not many actually got to the stage of texturing
though, if that will be in future I have no clue.
I have two ships modeled aswell, Egyptian
Sun boat, Philippine Balangay
