This blog is re-posted here for purely historical and archival interest.  It discusses Elf Clan's earlier days on Inworldz, written about 5 months after we opened our first region there.

 

Thought I'd provide a quick update to Elf Clan expansion on the Inworldz grid

(or... not so quick). ;D

 

NEW SIMS

We have several new sims now, for a total of six.  These sims…

Introduction to Steampunk

Originally posted 2011-09-23 by Wayfinder Wishbringer

Steampunk has been given many definitions... likely none of which is entirely accurate or all-encompassing.  The generally-friendly debate on "what is steampunk?" and what "isn't"... is as diverse as "Which is better, Star Trek or Star Wars?".   Very divergent thoughts.

Super Hero Syndrome

I tend to analyze things, sometimes too heavily. Or perhaps... other people don't analyze things heavily enough. If society as a whole looked at things more carefully and exercised a bit of wisdom in our collective activities, perhaps some of the things I analyze (global warming, the ecology, brotherhood,…

Crashing Much?

Inworldz is a stable platform... moreso than any other grid I know.  But some folks mention crashing and performance issues.  So here are hints and tips for how to avoid such problems.

 

Mind you, nothing totally prevents lag and crashing.  Crashes happen.  But these hints should help reduce crashing significantly.

 

CCLEANER.  (yes, that's 2 "C's").  If you use Windows, this is one of the best "cleaner" systems I've seen and has done more…

OpenSim vs Inworldz vs... NOT!

Recently there has been a rash of what's referred to as "grid bashing"... and a publicly-perceived concept that OpenSim / OSgrid / Inworldz / whatever grid are somehow mutually exclusive, contrary to one another's interests and somehow competitors.

  

This concept is most unfortunate and imo is only true because individuals make it true.

 

On opposite ends of the spectrum are two very notable blogs, the second of which I agree with very much.  Although disagreeing…

BACKING UP YOUR TEXTURES

HOW TO SAVE YOUR TEXTURES QUICKLY



(Quickly meaning about 300-500 per hour... not really all that quick, but...)



How do you back up textures so that you have an emergency copy? Here is the fastest and cheapest way I have found. It's labor-intensive, but the semi-automated process makes it much faster and easier.

Mad Hatter Art Fest - InWorldz, April 10 2012.

I have really enjoyed looking around the latest art festival in InWorldz. The builds are more and more creative every time I visit one of these events. I thoroughly enjoyed the music event today as well! Our very own Snoots Dwagon played at the Mad Hatter Crazy Whacky event - looking resplendent in his steamy top hat and with classical guitar in tow. Several Elf Clan members attended the event and enjoyed a variety of acoustic tunes - folk songs, more contemporary offerings and an original…
