Rezzable Brings The Greenies To OpenSimulator
During my European vacation last month, I stopped by to vist the cozy London office of Rezzable, acclaimed metaverse developer and more recently a partner to this blog, so I was able to get an advance peek at the company's first foray into OpenSim. Now open for public test, the Rezzable Alpha Grid runs on eight sims, and includes a copy of the famed Greenies living room that's become so popular in Second Life.
Jon was enthusiastic about how much more efficient it was to display and store data in OpenSim, than SL, and if I remember correctly, mentioned the possibility of OpenSim servers becoming a kind of offline builder for Second Life content creators. (Instead of buying a lot of land in SL to store your content, why not build and store it on an OpenSim server you directly own at a cheaper cost, and only import the content into SL when you need it?)
Anyway, I was impressed by how similar the OpenSim version of Greenies was, but apparently, there are seven significant differences. Finding them will be the challenge of a stress test party this Wednesday, with prizes for attendees. Here's all the details for registering and logging into Rezzable Alpha Grid, and joining in the fun.
