Hobby Reports for Authors
The hobby reports for authors try to explain, how to use the SRR/SMUOS Framework within an SrrTrains layout / within a Simple Multiuser Scene (SMS).
I have tried to write those hobby reports in way that you need not be an X3D expert to read them.
You can download the SRR Framework at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/simulrr/files.
You can download the SMUOS Framework at: http://sourceforge.net/projects/smuos/files.

Hobby Reports about the BIMPF (for Programmers)
The BIMPF *) approach is the current experimental approach of the SRR/SMUOS Framework, which uses the original Network Sensor without change and implements all necessary functionality in the higher layer (ECMAscript embedded in X3D).
*) BIMPF means a “little child”, a “baby”, but the word Bimpf is never used in a polite way in Austrian dialect
Hobby-Report “Notes about the BIMPF”: NotesAboutBimpf-I.pdf
Controller roles, especially the “central controller”.

Hobby-Report “Notes about the BIMPF III”: NotesAboutBimpf-III.pdf
- MMF paradigm (model/module/frame) and controller roles:
- Central controller
- Module controller (MOC)
- Object controller (OBCO)
- Target configurations
- Decentralized controllers – currently used
- Centralized controllers – not yet used
- Kinds of SRR objects
- Standard SRR Objects
- No state SRR Objects
- Animated SRR Objects.

Hobby Report “Train Manager Extension” (not yet finished): NotesAboutBimpf-VIII.pdf
The last steps to achieve the re-designed “Train Manager Extension (TME)” – i.e. to achieve “step 0033″
Hobby Reports about Future Topics (for Programmers)
Basically, the idea is to lower some functions of the SRR/SMUOS Framework to the lower layer (i.e. to the Web3D browser, i.e. to make them finally a part of the X3D standard), as soon as the need arises.

The SMUOS/C3P Idea:
- Making a new X3D Component from the SMUOS Framework
- Defining (a) protocol(s) to be used with this component (IETF)
