update on shared media text display: we won’t be able to make hundreds of objects carrying text displayed as HTML content, because we suffer from the ‘feature’ of the viewer to only show about 5 pages at a time.
nonetheless, we can use this feature, and i plan to do so. for example, the picture above shows a line of text on a megaprim outside of the simulator using HTML code with white font color and black background.
btw: the visuals. what’s shown above is monochrome again. max and i though about using primary colors. but we can have both monochrome and coloured levels. i could even drop a script in each coloured prim to switch between color and b&w. i did this for another piece, the environment, and it was very impressive when it was switched back and forth.
