yes, Kudos for original content but unfortunately, after 20 people show up on the island the lag will be unbearable. This is a never-ending problem with Second Life.

You mean there are more than 20 real people left in SL?

At last count there were just shy of one and a half million active, and rising steadily.

And your very own research Tateru about what... 8 months ago has shown a huge number of bots.

Given that since then online concurrncy has risen to 85K when the number of active users over 60 days has not... would you not say the number of bots has increased many many times?

No. The active users information stopped updating in January, but it was on a steady upslope.

The actual data up to end December seems to indicate that bot and mule accounts were accounting for an increasingly small percentage of the totals, based on the same methodology.

There's more credits on that video than footage.

I noticed that myself. Seemed a bit odd.

/me nods.. but check out the game ;) It's something very different on this platform.

Thanks for posting this Tateru and correcting the mistakes, while we are using a lot of audio, we've had hearing-impaired players beta-testing and got good feedback. Also, to Moe, we've tested this with 30 people playing at the same time, the way the game is designed, the experience is smooth and lag-free.

There's also this game produced by Mosi-Mosi Metaverse for RL car manufacturer SEAT. Another example of corporate entity betting for immersive games within SL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MtGLb1jp7AM

i've written what is probably the first if not the last review of this fine game here.

But really everyone should try it themselves. It's very well done and worth playing. A lot of fun.
