One thing that was hyped was how much better the avatars looked in Sansar. That is a lot of change but is this enough change for twelve years? (My twelfth rez day in SL was last Friday.)
Now this is my SL husband and I were in March 2017.
I wouldn’t expect Sansar to be this good right now but guys come closer after over three years of work.
I really did sort of feel like a newbie again. Weird thing appeared. I hope LL learned their lesson. I lived through the attack of the giant flying penises and I don’t want to go through that again. I had to learn how to walk and get around again. The big difference was twelve years ago I happily spent hours of enjoyment learning in SL but a couple of hours in Sansar and it was oh hum zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
I feel like Sansar is primitive alpha software rushed out the door to open beta because the investors are putting pressure on because of too many missed deadlines.

Something was clear very quickly. People don’t know to move off the experience destination landing point either. Hey people I think most of you should know it’s good manners to move off the landing point. Of course, it took four minutes for the experience to rez so people may have gone off to get a cup of coffee. Or really something stronger might be needed out of frustration. BTW my computer is above average since it is seven cores and 12-Gigs of ram running on a 75-meg line. Another experience loaded faster but no one else was there. I’m not sure how to check since there is no map but I didn’t see anyone.
The graphics are good looking but they aren’t that much better than SL’s. Hey people SL does have an advanced lighting choice in preferences.
How do you walk around without looking like you’re drunk? My arrow keys were so sensitive I would just lightly tap one and I would be moving in a radically different direction.
More later probably after I calm down from the frustration of waiting waiting waiting.
I forgot to add Willow is also in the virtual worlds of Kitely and Inworldz. I’m not in those worlds as much as Second Life.
While Kitely is technically interesting and may be the future of virtual worlds it is a little too “geeky” for me. I spent a couple of decades working professionally with computer systems and I don’t want to spend my time trying to figure out how something technically works. I’m also not fond of the its every sim is its own world data setup that is only loaded when someone accesses it.
The Inworldz world is almost the same as Second Life but without the exorbitant land prices.

In my opinion Kitely and Inworldz are hindered by not having enough population. Since I’m in virtual for social reasons so that is a problem.
Since Sansar may eventually supplant Second Life; I know LL says it won’t but with the haphazard way they do thing who really knows. So, it may be a good idea to keep your options open if it doesn’t cost too much.
Could this area be an area that is planned as a future transition area between Second Life and Sansar? Yes I know this is pure speculation. But think about it.
In my opinion one of the big problems from Sansar’s beginning was how Sansar ignored and was even hostile to the Second Life user base. Now after 2 years and the niche within a niche market for VR hardware that makes even less sense.
In late September 2016 Linden Lab added a series of new Linden Project regions (over 40+) far north of the mainland in Second Life. These regions (named HR/HC/HIH) are currently closed to the public but they are mainly rated Adult which is rather interesting. It’s unclear at the moment what the regions will be used […]
