New features added to our 3d world avatar engine (preview from TheoLabs)


TheoWorlds Builder (TheoSDK 2) - a new generation platform for building online games and avatar chat worlds - was updated with new features:

  • Elevations support. Now maps can have hills, different floor levels and so on. The picture on the left shows the map in the edit mode - a grid of tiles with different height covers the map, defining its shape.
  • New map graphics. We worked hard on creating high quality maps and here is the preview of the first one.
  • Map background/foreground support. Instead of covering the whole map with tiles, you can also use a background image. A foreground image can be used too - in this example the disco light installations are always in the front.
Here is the link:

Check the blog posts for other features.


For those who are interested in this product, but don't want to wait for the release, check TheoAvatar SDK and TheoSDK - our existing platforms for creating online games and multi-user 3D chats like TheoAvatar in Flash. Both come with Map Editor, source code and documentation.

I have an account in Second of Life, and I love to interact with people or players or in this case it would be more appropriate to say avatars, and I sell viagra online there!!
