Extensible approach to the virtual worlds editing

Vít Kovalčík, Jan Flasar, Jiří Sochor
2007 Proceedings of the 5th international conference on Computer graphics, virtual reality, visualisation and interaction in Africa - AFRIGRAPH '07  
The editing is done directly in 3D environment which has several benefits over the 2D editing, particularly the possibility to work with a scene exactly as in the final application.  ...  As an example of this approach, we present an editor that we implemented entirely as a set of abilities.  ...  Acknowledgements This work has been supported by the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic under the research program LC06008 (Center for Computer Graphics).  ...

Extensible Multi-domain Generation of Virtual Worlds using Blackboards

Gaetan Deglorie, Rian Goossens, Sofie Van Hoecke, Peter Lambert
2017 Proceedings of the 12th International Joint Conference on Computer Vision, Imaging and Computer Graphics Theory and Applications  
We show that our approach is extensible to a wide range of use cases of virtual world generation and that manual or procedural editing of the generated content of one generator is automatically communicated  ...  to the other generators, which ensures a consistent and coherent virtual world.  ...  Instead, we aim to show that the blackboard-based approach is highly extensible and is more robust when editing generated content.  ...

Integrating procedural generation and manual editing of virtual worlds

Ruben Smelik, Tim Tutenel, Klaas Jan de Kraker, Rafael Bidarra
2010 Proceedings of the 2010 Workshop on Procedural Content Generation in Games - PCGames '10  
This paper identifies challenges of this integration and discusses approaches to combine these methods in such a way that designers can freely mix them, while the virtual world model is kept consistent  ...  Because of the increasing detail and size of virtual worlds, designers are more and more urged to consider employing procedural methods to alleviate part of their modeling work.  ...  This research has been supported by the gate project, funded by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (nwo) and the Netherlands ict Research and Innovation Authority (ict Regie).  ...

Using virtual worlds for collaborative business process modeling

Ross Brown, Jan Recker, Stephen West
2011 Business Process Management Journal  
A Virtual World Approach to Process Modeling A) Preliminaries 3D virtual worlds are networked virtual representations of real or imaginary 3D spaces (Benford et al., 2001) .  ...  It is therefore logical to transfer this collaboration model for process modeling into the 3D virtual world, as it meets the key requirements of being intuitive, due to its natural extension from present  ...
