Cloud Party Adds Free Customizable Spaces, Social Sharing
Cloud Party has a bunch of new updates, as I just learned from Cyn Skyberg, the former Linden Lab VP who's now Community Director at the web-based 3D world co-funded by SL co-founder Cory Ondrejka. In brief, the major updates are free customizable spaces, and social sharing features that make it easier to find and promote cool Cloud Party places. Here's Cyn's breakdown:
"In a nutshell, we've made small space free to use - we're going for fast to load, lightweight experiences that anyone can use easily. You can upload templates (we have a few starter ones, more to come) to create a quick meeting or chat space, have a party or just hang out with friends without a lot of work. The free small spaces are totally customizable, just as any part of Cloud Party is, and allow you to have a full and rich experience with very little setup."
Cloud Party's updated homepage displays a bunch of user-made builds listed according to most "Likes", which is part of the social sharing action. More about Cloud-berg from Skyberg:
"Of course, delving into the deeper experiences is always part of the experience, and so we've made it much easier to not only find, but tag and share other's creations, improved search, and added a nifty optimization tool so you can monitor and measure the efficiency of your build."
So there you go. At this point I think Cloud Party really needs to be optimized for tablets, where lightweight 3D worlds are better suited, while high-res, heavy client worlds like SL are better suited for the Oculus Rift revolution.
