Introducing Virtual Earth Online, It has taken over 6 years to get to this stage. The technology behind this game is STUNNING!
The game is currently in open beta, we invite people to come download the game and test out the game play features.
The game is constantly being updated with new features every week. You can build massive cities, go to war with other players and virtually do anything you want.
The VEO game is a hybrid between the successful Minecraft and Sims video games coupled with stunning Google Earth technology to produce what is not just a video game but what could be considered the future of the internet.
You can also check out the huge building ability and materials too, create whatever your imagination can think of. You can do this on your purchased block or any vacant land. Players are really giving some excellent feedback on this and sending us some awesome screenshots.
VEO will grow in to a large community of like-minded people, you will be able to meet up with friends and contacts with in the virtual world and talk to them face to face, interact, walk around and build together.
The technology developed for VEO is staggering, not only is the entire Earth reconstructed within the game but we also have a real economy operating within the game utilizing real money.
Once players purchase their block of land they are free to build, explore and interact with other players in the game. Land blocks can be developed by players and then placed for sale to other players on the Virtual Earth Online real-estate website for real money.

For those of you who have been following the development of VEO, you will know the entire game has been written and designed by one man, Rubberman.

Just below you will see a short video showcasing the much improved game speeds thanks to the new servers.
The game and servers were written using the following languages:
The game uses Pascal to interface with windows and handle the TCP sockets.
OpenGL is the graphics interface to the graphics card.
ASM is the main language for running the game, it is faster than any other language.
The server is written in C++ to allow it to maximize 64-bit architecture.
The VEO website has also been upgraded as the player numbers grow. The land buying feature has been re-designed with solid back end programming to handle unlimited players. You should also go check out the improvements to the VEO real estate and trading pages, this is of course where players can make money from the real life economy coming to the game soon.

Google Mapping in VEO:
The server pulls the Google Maps & Earth data from the Google servers when a player visits land in the game that has never been discovered before. This allows the server to expand and grow as players discover more land. The data from Google is then analyzed by the server and using ASM it identifies all the features of the land including trees, roads, rivers etc. This data is then converted into Virtual Earth format and saved on the server.
