Sorry James , I'm unsure whether to laugh or cry at this attempt of VR. All I can see is it driving more folks to perhaps SL or one of the other open sim worlds.

I wonder what has more polygons, the entire Horizon Worlds or a Legacy body.

Well, until you get your actual mitts on access to Horizons Worlds, any feelings you have are personal and they can be as biased as you want - and frankly, you're not the first person to find it a little janky coming from Second Life.

Summer: Horizon Worlds is targeted to a standalone Quest 2. unfortunately that limits what shaders and geometry are allowed. if SL had been forced into the same limits from day 1 it would have potentially looked closer to this than it does to the renders we see all the time.
