000 Building the old 2009 AWGate for Alphaworld000

This will detail the construction and features of a gate that was and how it could be once again, with the additions, as featured.

For a first entrance a gateway to the rest of what's on offer, you have to have something exciting, fun, something that encourages the user to move around and explore, and a gateway or entrance needs to have for a first time user, instructions as to how to move, navigate and ultimately how to fly.

Anyone thats been in Activeworlds for a few years would recognise the style of the old gate and may hold many lasting memorys for the former place of entry for all of Activeworlds. A design that remained in use for many years, and was very succesful at bringing and holding onto new users.

For this as many people have spoken on how much they miss the old gate compared to the current new modern one, well there is one thing though that it seems that much talk has been made about missing the gate, but nothing has been thought of as much as an idea to why not re-create it in a public world, such as Alphaworld, I have decided to take on this major project, note mine is not perfectly to scale in fact its alittle larger in area from what the old AWgate was.
