A New Look!

We've created a whole new look for Virtulous!

After a year or more of my somewhat lame design, we've updated the look of the site with much more professional styles. You should see better mobile support as well.

Upload world button

Hey Folks,

I see that people are uploading various files to the "upload world" button. A few folks have attempted to post KMZ files from Google Earth. Great Idea! Unfortunatly, that's not how it works - that is mostly for downloading a backup copy of the world state, and uploading the file to restore it.

I'll be adding some format checks to detect that you post the right file.

World Publishing

Worlds are no longer listed publicly by default. You should find a new "publish" option under the "actions" button in the world settings. Click this to make your worlds show up in the search results and the "all worlds" pages.

Note: World links still worked as they did before. If you share the link to a world, others who know the link can see it, even if it is not published. As usual, you'll have to give them permission, or allow anonymous users to let them play it.

New Autocomplete!

image

Woohoo! We've updated the autocomplete tools to include a lot more information, and hopefully generally work better. The old tool was a custom implementation from back before ACE included an autocomplete. We've finally ripped that out and replaced it with the ACE built in auto completer. You'll notice that you get a lot more information, and the keys and buttons work more like you'd expect.

You'll also get some context for what various methods and properties are for. This help text should get better over time as we expand the library of information.

Version Number Bump

We've tagged a new version number for the system - you should now see a "2" in each URL. This new version of the Virtulous system includes the nodeBB forum, improved scalibilty, and additional performance improvements. Existing links that include the "1" version number should redirect without issue. If you have problems, please shoot me a message in the forum.
