Catching Up with Tranquility
Astra Thorne pinged me when I logged into Inworldz and after a brief conversation asked me if I'd met Tranq, who is the major force behind the grid ( "One of many," he says modestly). I said "No,"* so was whisked away to... well, I never did note the sim, but it was glowy purple and all magical-like :-D
*[08:20 PM] Osprey Therian: he scared of ducks? I hope not
[08:20 PM] Astra Thorne: he loves ducks
Astra had already told me he was through with assets and is currently working on the asset servers, and that Inworldz has two landing sims, now. It's expanding at a decent clip and has both Raglan Shire and Elf Clan, which are very active communities (it has others, too, but those are two I am associated with). Tranquility said the coding team of three has two full-timers, and the current focus is platform stability with large avatar group load (sounds like a Raglan specialty - lots of avatars). Their Inworldz viewer is contracted out. **
**[08:29 PM] Osprey Therian: Do you have your own viewer now? I'm using Imp. atm.
[08:29 PM] Tranquillity Dexler: yes. but there is a new one almost finished coming out
[08:29 PM] Tranquillity Dexler: Imp should work good here
[08:29 PM] Osprey Therian: Is much diff about your own? Should I try it?
[08:30 PM] Tranquillity Dexler: The current viewer shouldn't be a lot different
[08:30 PM] Tranquillity Dexler: The new one will let us integrate some of the features Im working on now
Inworldz has a good reputation with everyone I know, and part of that is because they are friendly, humble, and value their customers. I've never felt uncomfortable or out of place, and although I don't spend much time in there right now, it has a feeling of home.
