Simulated Eco-System for a Simulated World


While my computer gently weeps crunching through something in the background, I thought I’d post a quick entry on the very cool mention of an artificial eco-system set up inside Second Life. New World Notes has a great post (Link) relaying the story of SL resident Laukosargas Svarog’s efforts at creating a balanced, interacting environment on her private island sim in Second Life. Awesome stuff and very much worth reading.

I’ve not had a chance to do more than pop-in and grab an image, but I’ll be finding time to explore Svarog’s creation this weekend. Maybe I’ll even find some artificial fish.

{Update: I’ve found that Raph Koster has posted about this as well – Link. Read the comments.}
