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,
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.

The ship was to be named as the Potagonist,
devoted to one of the late founders of Activeworlds.

Based on the Great Wall of China, this
was origanaly in the old gate a smaller wall with a little ladder at one point,
the wall had little towers, very simple, but the way it was setup it became
