I'll be much more interested in Sansar when they get some basic animations. Sit, dance, wave, smile, frown, clap, etc. What good is "fashion" really when all you can do is just stand and walk around in it? Avatar animation is important...animation is expression.


I wont be interested in sansar ever

It doesn't make me want to go back and try Sansar again.

Just one comment on Marvelous Designer integration and remember I AM NOT THERE (in any form LOL). IF they figured out a way to import from Marvelous Designer and keep the "avatar complexity settings" low, then great as lots of folks that make clothes like MD.

HOWEVER Marvelous Designer is the number one "issue" on the SL Forums for uploading problems for mesh clothes. The problem is almost always the very HIGH COMPLEXITY of the garment. It certainly may ("may") be possible to keep that complexity low, but since Sansar is going to be user generated content, we are going to have to assume that the same issues from hobbiest designers will flow over into that platform.

I don't see how this is going to help what seems to be the number one complaint with Sansar -- the half hour load times.

Again, not my area of expertise, just what I see on the forums, so perhaps someone with more knowledge can reply here.

I won't be interested in going over until the Creator Preview extra TOS is gone. Haven't checked in awhile, perhaps it is. Still VERY busy in SL so my bags are not packed.


The avatars in Sansar is terrible. What i clothe them in have no importance. They just look braindead.


It's a start to make decent avatars but just a start. They have a long way to go to equal the avatars in SL. Developers seem to have a very low priority for avatars. Not just LL but Hi Fidelity and others too.

MD for a real license is 50 bucks a month... well tad under 500 for 'perpetual' and in this digital world thats a fun timeframe. So..yeah ok. Its not going to make your average sansar av look svelte but better fatty coverage i spose.
Interesting that the Lab are bringing in outside dev bits though. I kinda like that.


The Marvelous Designer integration is, for me, the first sign that Sansar truly is a next generation virtual world. Cutting out the rigging and weighting stage is huge! I'll be all-in when they improve the avatars and get cloth physics in world.
