Sansar six weeks in ☹

Willow Samsar Sept 2017 v4There have been some changes in Sansar after six weeks. Now you can add more and even buy attachments and even some clothing. But there is still very little to do except look around unless you are what LL calls an experience creator and have some expertise in external software.

There is more to do in VR mode (I can do both desktop and VR modes.) but it’s still not much unless you enjoy throwing things or re-stacking blocks. It seems like my approximately month between Sansar visits is more than adequate. While there are some changes there aren’t that many.

Things are looking up for dancing since they say you can now stream music into Sansar. It will be a while before the first DJ’s because the only “dancing” is waving your arms around in VR.

I’ve heard talk that something that is done in another virtual world is you can attach sensors to your legs and your avatar can follow your dance moves. Frankly LL I think this is a bad idea for Sansar. Besides I gotten good at office chair dancing.

*******************************

When Sansar first opened its beta product to any users, I said it seemed more like an alpha product. If I mentioned the basic thing missing like the ability to sit or the lack of in world building tools. Most of the responses had, “It’s early days yet.”

It was early days a year ago! NOT after three years of development from a company that claimed an advantage it had was its experience with virtual worlds. Let see the virtual world of Second Life has been open fourteen years. Did LL just ignore all that experience.

A Visit To Neive In Second Life — Ciaran Laval

ZZ Bottom misadventures in Virtual Worlds!

Inspired by Inara Pey’s blog post; Visiting ~Neive~ In Second Life, I decided to follow in Inara’s footsteps and visit Neive in Second Life. Inara had informed us about the region : ~Neive~ is a Homestead regions designed by Claudia (claudia74a Orsini) which Caitlyn and I first visited in late June 2017, when it still appeared…

No Irma YET but she’s on her way ☹

No Irma ye lowreztThis the calm before the storm. They are predicting either Monday night or Tuesday morning Irma will get here. But only as a Category 1 storm here. Definably power outage and fallen down trees.

I’ve gotten lots of new batteries. I even paid my rent in the virtual world of Second Life ahead of time. Tomorrow I’ll move some food from the refrigerator to an ice chest. Then its fingers and toes crossed.

Willow gets ready for Irma in Second Life

Getting Ready for Irma in SL

I live far enough inland that when it gets here Irma just supposed to be a category 1 hurricane. Which will hopefully just mean just knocked down trees and power lines. I usually pay my rent on Monday but that will be just when Irma is supposed to hit here. So, I realized Saturday morning I better go ahead a pay it.

I hope I won’t be out of this virtual world long. I may even try to get on with my laptop just to say hello. I’m keeping my phone, laptop, and iPad all charged up.
