well, it’s 99% done and thank you to the 20 people who have checked it out so far (over 5 combined hours) and given me some feedback =)
Hax Nuit has been live on Kitely for a week now and apart from blabbing here, it’s also been mentioned in Google+ with pics by Gaga (thanks) =)
it takes a certain kind of person to like this kind of thing – solving mazes and basically walking around an entire sim both above and below ground. it’s been fun to build and fulfills a long time daydream and thanks to how Kitely’s service plans work, it’s basically been free for me to do. i would never have been able to do this on our dedicated server. Kitely’s affordability AND very strong performance are hard to beat
on our own server, building this would have used as many resources as our two plus year Enclave Harbour project. since Kitely treats each world (whether one region or 16) as its own instance, it’s like having a server for each thing (one for Enclave Harbour, one for the freebie store, and now one for Hax Nuit). but that’s not really doing justice to what Ilan and Oren have put together – it’s like having three servers that can do 100,000 prims and 100 concurrent users each!
that’s just nuts
and something that still has not sunk in, although seeing how well the over 36,000 prims perform for Hax Nuit is kind of getting me there (i’m surprised at how stuck i still am in the SL paradigm of $295 for 15k prims! for $35 we get 20 regions to use any way we want – it could be 20 individual regions with 100K prims each! i guess even my thinking is stubborn and slow to embrace new things!) =p
back to Hax Nuit, as i think of new treasure items, i’ll add them in and update the list on the tablet in the helicopter (building 5). i’ll probably make a dedicated web page with the back story (as written the other day) and the latest maps (underground and mazes) – that way only one link needs to be accessed, if so desired
i guess i could move on from Imprudence 1.3.2 (talking about me being slow to adapt) and actually place that resource page in Hax Nuit (can you buy an item that has MoaP on it and walk around with it? like maybe as a forearm mounted LCD screen that displays a web page? hmm, that might be hard to look at on your avatar’s wiggling arm and click buttons eh?)
