IT'S NOT ADVERSARIAL

In a recent discussion on another blogsite, a user made the following comment:

"Closed commercial grids, imo, will only offer a place to sell and the rest of the metaverse will be for exploring vw as it should be, with freedom from exorbitant costs, low prim allowances, saving one's efforts in the form of OARs and IARs and meeting some really wonderful like-minded people."

I thought I'd discuss these concepts a bit and the reality of Virtual…

WHAT COMPUTER FOR INWORLDZ?

Where is Elf Clan Heading?

As we approach the end of 2012 many Elf Clan members wonder what our group is doing and where we're heading.   The answer is simple:  we're heading toward your imagination.

PHYSX

Currently Inworldz is in a "holding pattern" stage.  They're finishing up the last of the PhysX testing with live test sims on the main grid.  Once those test sims prove out and they work out the last of the bugs, they'll be installing PhysX grid-wide.  We're currently…

SECOND INVENTORY TURNS TO CRIPPLE WARE

SECOND INVENTORY CRIPPLED



For some time, Second Inventory (a program that sells for about US$25) has been the only functional method for backing up our SL inventory. This program had an advantage over Viewer-based backup systems, in that not only could it back up objects and textures, but gestures, sounds, scripts, notecards, skins, clothing-- in short just about the whole…

FOOTSBALL: ORKS vs DWAGONS & PIXIES

FOOTSBALL: ORKS vs DWAGONS & PIXIES

Is true story.

The day was bright and crisp, with just enough chill to make the fans wear cloaks and the players comfy.  There was a sense of expectation and wonder in the air as the time drew closer for the beginning of the event everyone had been waiting for:  the first ever Orks vs Dwagons & Pixies Footsball game.



If one were to look into the bleachers you would have seen a diverse and enthusiastic crowd. …

Ork War III

At the request of several members, this article has been repeated here from our old blogsite.  It's one of our longest blogs ever... and well-worth the read.  Thanks to Cinnamon Raymaker for hunting it down for us.

Resuming Ning

We've been looking for a replacement for the now defunct Grouply blogsite.  Unfortunately it appears most blogsites on the net take one of two forms:

1. Intended for professional use and therefore... expensive.

2. Amateurish and buggy beyond belief and not worthy of attention.

There's not much I've found in between.  Therefore I've had to consider what our group needs and what's available in the way of a group-oriented blogsite.  I came up with two…

INWORLDZ-- IT JUST ROCKS

INWORLDZ-- IT JUST ROCKS

Elf Clan left Second Life in November 2011 after moving to Inworldz in May 2010 and finding the platform quite supportive of our group.  In April 2012 Elf Clan boasted 30 regions (sims).  In short, we're thriving on Inworldz.

I wanted to write a blog about the Inworldz grid, its benefits and downsides, so that potential sim owners can better understand what they're about, and can make a good decision if…

ROTTEN OL' LINKY LAB

I was working on Inworldz today on my Firefly starship.



Because they don't have arbitrary, no-reason, silly constraints... I managed to link the entire 768 prim, 80 meter long ship into one object.



This means I don't have to use a Multi-Move flight script (and the resultant lag) to move the ship.



It means the ship doesn't move like a can in a tornado with pieces catching up with one another... but as one linked piece, smoothly (or relatively so).



It means I… Continue

A Realistic View of Inworldz

I've heard many comments regarding Inworldz, both complimentary and not so. Blogs have been posted both praising it and blasting it. So I wanted to dive in a little and present what I hope to be a realistic view of one of the fastest-growing new grids.





WHY INWORLDZ IS DIFFERENT

It might help to first of all discuss what makes Inworldz different from other grids. Inworldz started out as an OpenSim grid. But as time passed and they realized (as have many) that…

A NEW DIRECTION-- SUMMARIZED

I recently wrote a blog titled "A New Direction" in which I detailed (quite lengthily, even I will admit) new policies in the operation of Elf Clan. While the design of that blog was to be open, honest and informative, quite simply, a lot of people don't have the time or desire to read a lengthy blog.



Original blog: http://elfclan.ning.com/profiles/blogs/a-new-direction



So here is a summary of the main points of that blog (yes, even this… Continue

The Two Sides of Philip Linden--a Missive to Linden Lab

I'd like to say one thing up-front: Welcome back Philip.



That doesn't mean I'm a fan of Linden Lab. They haven't done much lately to make anyone a fan of that company. Re-gaining trust (what little there ever was) is going to have to be earned the hard way... through work and treating people right-- for a change.



Nevertheless, in a recent speech, Philip said some things that -- if he means it and it's not just political spouting --… Continue
