Cobalt's 3D environments — called Spaces — are analogous, for those familiar with Second Life, to Islands or Estates. Since Cobalt Spaces don't depend on servers for delivery you can create as many spaces as you wish — easily, and at no cost — to suit your specific individual, organizational or pedagogical objectives.
Creating a Space
Creating a new space is easy:
- Space > Make New
- A rectangular frame will open in from of your avatar. The face of the frame will be white for several seconds while the new Space loads. You'll know the Space is finished loading once you see the frame displaying a black "room" with gray grid lines.
- To enter the Space, simply guide your avatar directly through the frame.
You're now ready to begin modifying your Space with Sky and Ground textures (see Modifying Spaces) and content (see Adding Objects).
