Oren from Kitely just posted New Cloud-Based Inventory System which will speed up how fast you enter the world, reduce lag when others enter your world, and allow for faster inventory access. so maybe now your avatar being a cloud will turn into your avatar being in a cloud (and become a good thing) =)
i can’t wait to go home and test this
the freebie shop i have opens quickly (imo) and takes about 30 seconds for me to be on the floor. Enclave Harbour takes about 2 minutes and 15 seconds, which i am fine with, because it is 16 regions with close to 35,000 prims
any speed improvements are a good thing and will help Kitely gain even greater adoption. this probably also means a more efficient use of resources – why have servers running for inventory that no one is using?
Linden Lab could learn a huge lesson here, imagine how much server space they use for all the free crap people have in their inventories and how many accounts that never log in (with a supposed 10,000 signups per day, that’s a lot of inventory out there!). i remember back in 2007 when Linden Lab was talking about possibly charging for inventories in excess of a certain number of items!
good job Oren! and thank you! =)
my head may be in the clouds but now, so is my avatar!
