Python for Massively Multiplayer Virtual Worlds

Jason Asbahr, Technocrat, ASBAHR.COM

Track: Python
Date: Wednesday, July 25
Time: 1:45pm - 2:15pm
Location: Bel Aire North

A technical overview of the Python foundation of UO2, the next- generation massively multiplayer virtual world from Origin Systems, Inc. UO2 presents an imaginary planet inhabited by all manner of fantastic, mythical, and technological creatures, places, and things for users to explore. Python makes it go.

The talk will address three key ideas in the philosophy of the UO2 architecture. The first is the structure of the logical simulation domain; the second, the split between the maintenance of simulation reality and the presentation of that reality to users; and finally, the means by which the simulation utilizes a relational database for behavior definition and object state storage.
