In this paper we propose a new design notation to improve communication in teams creating virtual environments (VEs). Our experience in creating VEs is that the programmers and designers have no common formalisms which results in ambiguity and misunderstanding in creating the final VE. After teaching a selection of specification techniques to design students, we realized that we needed to create our own formalism. This we used with designers who found the notation useful and intuitive. More importantly, the programmers were able to interpret the formalism more accurately and reduce the time required to create virtual environments.
