Anyways nice vid, that technology probably won't be used in games for like another 4 years I bet.

Sorry, I'm just disappointed. I mean, who knows what will become of Alliance? Who knows how long their job with Linden labs coud take? It seems plausible that it could take them a year...


Yes, this is business, but I'm just saddened that Alliance, a really promising FPS game, was delayed on accoutn of secondlife.

Jesus. I tested the Second Life. Man it sucked. It was just a example of one of the top 100.000 grafic engines, and Second Life is placed in 99.999 position. Man i was in Second Life like 1-5 minutes and the engine crashed, i even got the blue screen. OMG... Second Life will not give anything to Alliance.

If you read some stuff on wikipedia about them, it seemed like their engine was unstable.

but even if they fix the graphics, who's gonna play it.. how about the gameplay?

Quote:
Because it is under constant development, and is an open environment that can be used by almost anyone with broadband internet access,[39] Second Life has encountered a number of challenges. These range from the technical (budgeting of server resources) and moral (pornography) to legal (legal position of the Linden Dollar, Linden Lab lawsuit).

Prior to June 6, 2006, all Residents were required to verify their identities by providing Linden Lab with a valid credit card or PayPal account number, or by responding to a cell phone SMS text message.[40] (Residents providing information were not charged if their account type cost nothing to create.) After that date, it became possible to create an account with only an e-mail address; even standard verification methods such as e-mail reply verification are not used.[41] Access to Teen Second Life still requires credit card details. Linden Lab has the ability to ban Residents from Second Life based on a hardware hash of their local PC,[42] preventing them from returning with other accounts.

The policy change to email-address-based membership brought about harsh criticism. The resultant flood of new members (most of them non-paying users) overtaxed the system both in hardware and manpower, causing excessive lag, teleportation and inventory failures, a dramatic increase in "griefing" and other problems. Allegedly to attract corporate interest, Linden Lab posted a public blog patting themselves on the back for reaching the "2 million residents" mark. This was met by numerous angry criticisms pointing to degraded system performance as a result. Several users noted that the claimed "residence" figures were highly exaggerated, pointing out that the actual activity of the board was roughly nine percent of the claimed residency figures, with paying membership below the two percentile point. Blogs and forum posts regularly attack the company for making exaggerated membership and performance claims.[43] There is also considerable criticism regarding paying members footing the bill for countless "freebie" users, while themselves receiving no preferential treatment or increased system performance. Free users have countered they "contribute" to the system just by their presence, some making claim of significant contribution via "time and content". Paying users counter that "playing a game" does not constitute contribution to the system. Debate regarding this issue has been drawn-out and heated, with advocates and critics on both sides of the issue.

In January 2007, two articles were published on the Internet which compared the economy of Second Life to a pyramid scheme.[44][45] In the same month, a "virtual riot" erupted between members of the French party National Front who had established a virtual HQ on Second Life, and opponents, including Second Life Left Unity, a socialist and anti-capitalist user-group.[46][47][48][49] Since then, several small internet based organizations have claimed some responsibility for instigating the riots.[50]

There are also issues with SecondLife support being under resourced, with support tickets and billing issues going unresolved. Residents have complained of having money stolen from their accounts, having credit withdrawals fail and other related billing issues.

During 2006 several established members of Second Life ceased support of the system. Among these was Starax, SL's most popular sculptor and builder/scripter. Premiere live musician Astrin Few publicly posted a stern warning of intent to leave the system if host company Linden Lab did not pay more attention to customer needs. Criticisms against host company Linden Lab involve continuing system technical issues such as lag, repetitious bugs, customer inventory loss and excessive downtimes. Also cited were issues regarding "self-serving" company policies, failure to police the system (including lack of protection of members from alleged unethical/criminal activities), and criticism of host company Linden Lab for gross misrepresentation of membership figures. The late 2006 exit of the Elven Lord Wayfinder Wishbringer and the subsequent decision of the Elf Clan Counsel to shut down lands and cease financial support of the Second Life platform was a negative milestone that created significant ripples. The group cited as primary cause for shutdown the host company ignoring misappropriation by a renegade officer of thousands of dollars in group funds and lands-- a common criticism of Linden Lab policies.

The same time period brought strong criticism against Linden Lab for their allegedly catering to big business and ignoring the people and groups who had helped them build the system. Such criticism increased dramatically when Linden Lab in anticipation of corporate investments increased first year costs of private virtual islands by some 32% and second year rentals by 50%, making it difficult for hobbyist users to afford such fees.

First year costs of private islands are $1,695 purchase price and $295 a month maintenance fees, for total first-year costs of $5,235 USD. Second year land costs total $3,540.


Basically, it's free and people can go into the world and do whatever they want, even if that it's porn and whatever other wierdness...



How about half the team works on seocnd life and the other works on alliance?

IceBallz looks into this topic while he dig in his big nose for some news. To shoot into the polished floor with his fingers and then stamp on it, where it lays on the floor.
