At SL I have mainland plot with 234 prims. I would love to decorate all day long but my prims always finish too soon. So when I read Inara’s article about Kitely I just had to make an account immediately. I have also tried Inworldz but it felt like old fashioned SL. I am sure it is lot more but the first expression was not very good one.
Making Kitely account was very easy and quick and after reading basics I was in and creating my own free region. Under 5 minutes I had own privacy and plenty of space! I don’t even realize how big it is… and I am sure I have misunderstood the prim thing. It is not possible to have 100 000 prims for free!
Next step: do I build everything on my own or do I try to move content from SL to Kitely? I think I try both ways.
For a while I just want to stand on the middle of my own region, feeling air and space and freedom and all the possibilities.
But, one of the many things that separates Kitely from all the other virtual worlds currently offering themselves as Second Life alternatives, is the level of professionalism. This is a real company, run by a dedicated staff that is serious about what they do. Kitely has all the signs of being up for the job and around for a long time.
Pure horror. That was my first reaction when I extempore signed up to the InWorldz. Not because of leaving SL – oh no never! – but just for curiosity. I also have Blue Mars account since 2009 and I tested it also – but hated every minute of it. It is so totally different than SL and seems like there’s absolutely nothing to see or do. I might be wrong, but learning curve after SL is too painful so I don’t think I log in to the Blue Mars any time soon.
But InWorldz. It is like old-fashioned SL… like going back in time. Being newbie again is rough! When I arrived to the welcome area there was people waiting and offering me free house and help – very friendly and nice, but it happened so quickly… 10 minutes after log in I was standing outside my 30 day free rental beach house. Had to admit I was little irritated when they gave me tips how to put my typing animation off or how to open preferences… after I had said several times I am very familiar with the viewer based on my 7 years in SL. The viewer feels to be same as SL viewer, I did not noticed any differences what so ever.
I have no idea if I am going back. I am not so interested, but I am curious to test other virtual worlds too and it is not fair to judge after quick testing. Nevertheless, my tip of the day: if you think SL is boring and dull and empty and stupid, try other virtual worlds and you are gonna just love love love Second Life.
