Bryn Oh on the news about Second Life 2.0: Sky falling?

Bryn Oh on the news about Second Life 2.0: Sky falling? | Second Life and other Virtual Worlds | Scoop.it

One of the things I have heard for years, (no not that SL's death is imminent which I have heard since 2004) is that the reason why Linden Lab can't repair half the problems with SL such as voice, group chat, lag and so on are due to the original rather shoddy code that the entire world is based upon.  So essentially the foundation of our house is made of rubber balls for some reason, and they try to fix a wobble in the kitchen table.  They really have to fix the balls first, yet that meant tearing down the house, which would have been a fatal course of action at the hype time of SL.

Kitely is Removing Metered Worlds and Introducing Premium Worlds

Kitely is Removing Metered Worlds and Introducing Premium Worlds | Second Life and other Virtual Worlds | Scoop.it

Q: I have a Regular Account, and I use Premium Worlds. What are my options?

A: Your first option is to upgrade to a Premium Account ($19.95 / month). This will allow you to create Premium Worlds, and to permit Regular Account and Hypergrid users to visit your Premium Worlds. A Premium Account includes 5 free premium regions, so whatever you’re currently paying for world storage fees (10 KC / region / month) will probably be lower. A Premium Account will also allow you to visit your worlds for free (currently you pay 1 KC / minute for the time you spend in your worlds). And finally, a Premium Account lets you visit virtual worlds that are only open to users with a Premium Account (this is a common access restriction).

Your second option is to change your worlds to be Fixed-Price Worlds. E.g., a Starter World costs $14.95 / month. This will allow both yourself and anyone else to visit the world without costing you anything. If you choose this option then you can remain on the Regular Account.

And finally, you can choose to do nothing. We will not delete your Premium Worlds: they’ll remain in your account (as long as you pay the storage fees of 10 KC / region / month). However, since you have a Regular Account you will not be able to visit them – only users with a Premium Account will be able to visit these worlds.

Mad City is closing down May 31st and as always, we’re going down with a big bang.. or maybe it’s something else this time… but in the end, it will be all gone. There is still time to enjoy the rainy streets, play the Art Gacha machines, explore the shops, try to Escape the two logical puzzle rooms or just hang out on a nice sim. Rez has been enabled for all, so that especially photo and film makers can rez their poses and props needed. It’s an end of an era but also the beginning of something even bigger.
