Cobalt Spaces  are the sharable 3D environments where you create your simulation and interact in real-time with other Cobalt users. For those familiar with Second Life, Spaces are analogous 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:

  1. Space > Make New
  2. A rectangular frame will open in front 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.
  3. To enter the Space, simply guide your avatar directly through the frame.

You're now ready to begin modifying your Space. To learn how to add sky and ground textures see Modifying Spaces. To learn how to add content see Adding Objects.

Saving a Space

To save a space:

  1. Space > Save As...
  2. In the Save Space As... dialog box, give your Space a name
  3. Click OK
