Do NOT post about other simulator sites in my threads!


New Gaia Housing Simulator thread since the first one got eaten. D:

... I guess I'll have more to put here later. XD

I will post something else for help with furniture images when I figure out how I want to deal with them.

Welcome to the thread for my newest project, a simulator for Gaia's housing system. If you aren't already familiar with my work or don't recognize my name, I'm the person behind the Gaia Avatar Simulator (GAvSim), Gaia's first avatar simulation/preview program (it began in mid to late July of 2003).

The housing sim will be pretty primitive to start with, but I'll be continuing to improve the code as time passes to make it more and more accurate. One such improvement will be exact positioning of objects within the room.

This project has full approval from the four original admins (Lanzer, VO, L0cke, and Ling), I asked for their permission after the panel at Anime Expo 2005.

I realize that housing is nearly a year really freaking old now, I've actually been working on this on and off since a week or two after the initial release. It hasn't been until recently that I've figured out how I want everything done.

Nothin' at the moment. I think.

This is a LOT easier than submitting things to the GAvSim, thank goodness. <3

All you have to do is place the object I still need images for in your house, then post here telling me about it. If you wanna be real cool, you can include a link to your house. I can get the link myself, but putting it there for me makes things go a bit faster. :3 I'll let you know via PM once I've got it, so you can take it out if you don't want it to stay in your house.

That's all there is to it! :3
Expenses
(header image pending, blah)

Yes, sometimes I end up buying things in order to collect their images. With the case of the housing simulator, this tends to be wall and floor tiles.

This is merely to keep track of how much I end up spending on it, I'm not asking for donations (although they are accepted).

Still need to compile a list of people who have posted with items in their houses...

Unless you want to see me thank my bigass JavaScript book for clearing up a few things. XD Big yellow thing called JavaScript Bible 5th Edition. Very helpful book. <3

* GAvSim (Gaia Avatar Simulator) :: thread | website
Should be obvious. X3 If it isn't,

* Housing Error Message Information
A list I've compiled to help people determine the cause of image loading errors in the housing editor.

* Complete Gaian Itemlist
Lightning Usagi has compiled one hell of an item list and it's massively helpful. I checked her rare housing item listing to make sure I wasn't missing anything. :3

* Gaiabar
A special toolbar built for the Fire Fox browser. It has links to many areas of Gaia available to you within a few short clicks, and links to a few Gaia-related utilities.
Temporary holding for houses with images I need and I can't get them at the moment:
