While we wait for the medium that is gonna be used to add fan ages to MOULa and various programs being produced to convert and export existing ages made with Blender to the new game engine I figured we can get another part of the task started. Keep in mind the age hasta be appropriate for the story of Uru, hasta fit within the cannon, hasta be free of any copy write issues, and the author/author's of the age hafta be reachable so she/he/they can be prompted to submit her/his/their age for inclusion to MOULa, assuming she/he/they agree to do so.

Now their are over a hundred ages to choose from and not all are appropriate for MOULa for any one of a number of reasons, so if your age does not get chosen its not necessary a reflection on its quality, however Cyan is a business and as a business they havta be careful what they put on their servers due to the legalities involved. Also you must understand that we do not have free choice and the option to take whatever ages we like and put them into MOULa. We can wait for the author(s) of the age to first offer or submit their age for consideration, but we can also encourage the author to submit their age if their work is worthy and meets all the criteria. Based on what little I have heard I believe we will have plenty of time to sort threw the ages and whittle them down to what Cyan is willing to except.

So be proactive, get involved and lets get this party started, or at least part of it

Edit to proof-read......kinda

For those who didn't stumble upon those yet, you can get a quick overview of what is available through two comfortably to glance through simple PDF files by downloading them here ... Enjoy ... :D

Aww ... thank you, tommyap ... :)

Though those illustrated lists might be helpful and serve as a first impression, I'd suggest to explore the ages which have been taken into consideration through 'means' available on the Guild of Writers website ... :D

Jo'nae Hood is a lot of fun--pretty and with a lot of puzzles. Unfortunately the Writer is hard to contact, I've been trying to get in touch with him to publish images of his Age to the DevART site.

"Lost Stonehenge" is frequently updated and is a beautiful, yet simple Age that could serve as a good starting point. It's small, but fun to explore, and has a relto page for added benefit. "Serene" also fits into this category, though it doesn't have a relto page. "Vothol Gallery" is a spectacularly detailed age, though small.

"DRA Office/Adrael" and "Ashream" are both large, well-realized ages with an appreciable level of puzzles. Adrael is a little rough, perhaps, but still fun.

... Maybe we should start with the /finished/ ages, like

Fahets
Fehnir's House
Fens
Kaelis' pub office
Relativity
Serene
Tre'bivdil
Vothol Gallery

And others

One of the issues with Relativity is even though it was started in AutoCad & Max it was finished in Blender, it needs to be converted to be useable for the new game engine, We kinda shot our selves in the foot on this one, because its a little more complex then it looks, and any one will tell you the more complex something is the more things there are to go wrong.

It is possible and their are some unsubstantiated rumors that some body is working on it for one of the open source shards but so far there just rumors based on a few hints.

Are best bet would be to start with the ones that are already in MOULa format. Unless we have a Escher fan in Cyan with an age importer for Max its highly unlikely to happen for Relativity. Also some of the additions to the original structure may cause copy write issues if we dont get a license from the M.C. Escher foundation it may never be on any of the Open Source shards. But if it can not be converted to the MOULa format theirs no use getting a license

Plus, Fehnir's House, Tre'bivdil and Vorhol Gallery are already in MOULA format.

Fens is "finished" but it will likely go through a major revision in the times to come. Enjoy it as it is while you can.

Blender ages made with pyprp can be converted, although with difficulty, which is why so far it has been limited to ages that have been chosen to be released on Gehn. I'll do a good word for Relativity :)

Edit: Actually according to Hoikas it isn't finished yet?
