Hello! If you're getting started making virtual worlds a great way to begin is with an X3D world! It lets you make 3D stuff for the web using an XML language that's a lot like HTML.

All you need is a website and blender!

An example of an X3D world: https://melonking.net/vr/


NOTE: You will need neocities supporter rank to host X3D files, an alternative free host is https://ichi.city/ or https://tilde.town/ and for bigger projects https://leprd.space/

See the full tutorial HERE: https://docs.google.com/document/d/11yOyem4uaidXH4PQy5fynZAe47Ck4akn_g_4VaRcro8/edit?usp=sharing (Sorry Ill convert it to the forum at some point!)

Feel free to ask questions below.

Huge thank you for the tutorial!

It helped me wrap my head around how it works. Really liking how you've simplified things to their essence, and how you used the right level of detail of an introduction. I'm still looking for a little inspiration on what world to build now. :)

By the way, anyone that wants more than 10MB of space to host a virtual world on ichi.city, let me know.

i've been meaning to try out x3d for a while now! instead of doing actual work (lol) i've been messing around with this - but i seem to be a bit stuck on adding textures on the models... i tried copying your git repo, and looked @ the official documentation, but not sure what i'm doing or not doing..haha. any ideas? https://cinni.net/games/yesterweb/

EDIT: nevermind! i figured it out haha. firstly i didn't realize you couldn't edit the appearance of an inline tag in html and that i had to edit the 3xd model in notepad lol. not sure why the image texture didn't intially export, though. also i read another tutorial and saw they used separate closing tags, not self closing.. so i think that seemed to do it for the shapes!

I really like the colour set you used on this, and it also loads super fast. As soon as I saw this was like "OH I wanna do my landing page in X3D now" but looking at your updates, it looks like Neocities cant screenshot X3D worlds (anymore)? which kinda spoils that plan  :(

The neocities point is weird because mine used to screenshot:


I'll update the tutorial to clarify those appearance editing and tag points, lemmy know if you run into any other issues!

it is a shame about the screenshots! but now that i'm sort of getting the gist of X3D i want to make the landing page for entrance or exit in X3D too haha. it works on mobile pretty painlessly :-p

if i run into any other issues i'll let you know.. but i am eagerly awaiting the multiplayer tutorial.. 👀
