Hey ya'll! I found my way to this channel awhile ago via this post: https://matrix.org/blog/2017/04/04/opening-up-cyberspace-with-matrix-and-webvr

Given that Mozilla (who i sometimes do stuff with) is moving from irc to matrix, I thought I'd give this channel a bump and see if anyone is still paying attention.

So, Mozilla is doing Matrix stuff. Mozilla is also doing VR stuff. One of the things they're working on is a product called hubs (https://hubs.mozilla.com/) which enables the easy creation of social vr spaces.

I just found out they built a bot for integrating Hubs with Discord (https://hubs.mozilla.com/docs/hubs-discord-bot.html) which brought me back here because it seems like there could be potential for Matrix and Mozilla to do some interesting vr things together that weren't possible even a few months ago.

This being open source is a huge boon to our work on verse.im
20:55:40@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæusWe're opening up about ~3000 games from https://www.roleplaygateway.com/universes for exploration within VR + browser access

MUD-style worlds with Matrix state for data
Huh, are you actually doing this or just theorizing it?
22:46:49@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæus Already done, we've got a bridge into our existing MUD world, focusing on the Multiverse for our main instance but same engine available for everyone
22:47:17@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæusRemaining work is almost entirely assets, graphical representations of items, mobs, etc.
22:48:22@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæus matrix-js-sdk on the client side but migrating to any number of lighter clients (riot-web a bit big for our tastes at ~5MB)
22:49:11@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæusChat is the "console" for the game world currently, builder commands + gm controls (mob and item spawning, quests, etc)
22:52:27@andrewm:amorgan.xyzanoaVery nice!
22:52:47@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæusHere's one of the "virtual spaces" that has been popular lately: https://www.roleplaygateway.com/universes/the-multiverse/places/raptor-bar-and-grill
22:53:08@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæusWe've got 15 years of logs that we need to backfill, planning on opening to public afterwards, sometime in next ~3 months
22:54:29@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæusPublic log of all active scenes: https://www.roleplaygateway.com/scenes
22:55:40@andrewm:amorgan.xyzanoa Interesting! So it's mostly text-based rp'ing?
22:56:02@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæusTo date yes, about 3 years ago we decided to move forward with graphical rendering of in-game stuff
22:56:26@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæus~9 years of players / worldbuilders reflecting IC roleplay content into tracked items, locations, factions
22:56:53@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæusSome lofty MUSH-style goals with NLP for triggering in-game behaviors
22:57:23@andrewm:amorgan.xyzanoavery cool. using chat bots essentially?
22:57:30@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæusTraining on our historical message log w/ supervision from state changes like item creations, etc.
22:58:01@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæusYes, client-side agent with all game logic, bots only used to enforce validation
22:58:49@andrewm:amorgan.xyzanoaI see, so some actual ML stuff then?
22:59:25@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæusYes, but likely to be reserved for a future release after QA... lots of players invested quite a bit of time on their characters
22:59:39@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæusNLP / ML hard to get right without undesired effects
22:59:50@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæussince it's a persistent world we have to be careful
23:00:27@andrewm:amorgan.xyzanoayep, makes total sense
23:00:32@andrewm:amorgan.xyzanoaI wish you luck with it :)
23:00:56@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæusthanks, would be eager to have @lostamongtrees:roleplaygateway.com do a walkthrough if you're ever interested
23:01:20@remaeus:roleplaygateway.comRemæusteam size now ~30 people, across builders, artists, and writers
