What if your own virtual world?

Play God and Be God, even if just virtually


The eye-candy that splashes across the television screen in video games adds to their allure. But even the compelling imagery is simply one component of the whole. The magic that is placed onto our sight when this visual comes to life makes up the remaining half. To escape into another time and place, which are provided to you through virtual reality, all that is needed is player-controlled animation.


As you might have guessed, virtual reality is a computer-generated, imaginary three-dimensional visual world. Players can enter this world, move around in it, and interact with its objects as if they were actually there. Virtual reality is demonstrated in some of the games that are already available on the market. Video games like Zelda, Halo, or Harry Potter let players join a world and interact with items, but they don't let them make that world— to that's the whole point of virtual worlds.


Anyone can make a virtual environment and have a tonne of fun doing it without having any programming knowledge at all. A notion is all that's required.


You should start by creating a map of the ideal world, the wackiest planet, or the most peculiar world you can conceive. A "starter" world is provided by certain virtual world creation tools so that you can add to it and eventually create the world of your dreams. In the SimCity or Sim Town video games from Maxis, a template is used effectively. Both games offer pre-designed locations with lots of room and flexibility to customize them to your tastes.

You could always begin from scratch, of course. The only drawback to starting from scratch is that some capabilities offered by virtual worlds require more time and expertise to incorporate. The majority of users create a world by adding items and scenarios—sometimes even removing some—until they find the ideal balance, whether they start from scratch or from a template.


Online is an excellent resource for finding examples of what you could create for virtual world games. A player can download and install a sample environment into their own PC from any virtual world program that is accessible. Some game makers even run competitions and give victors free upgrades. Other good sources of inspiration are fiction books, including historical, fantastical, and futuristic works. Science fiction films can be a great source of inspiration.


Just be aware that playing online games takes time. Rome wasn't created in a day, and your virtual world won't either. There is no rush, and this is a leisurely activity. Enjoy yourself and take your time. Don't worry about not knowing how to construct something or draw out a map. Don't worry if you don't know how to create something or draw out a map; you will eventually learn how to accomplish these things. It won't help if you're constantly frustrated if your goal is to create a world of enjoyment.


When you're ready, include characters with their own distinct biographies, routines, traits, and strengths and weaknesses. You may also assign them objectives or tiny chores to complete during the game. You may help the game have a plot by giving your characters objectives and tasks.
