There are many interesting places (worlds) to visit in Kitely, see here.
According to Hypergrid Business latest blog post Avination Grid has officially shut down on OpenSim which is very sad news to hear about. Apparently the grid and company behind it has officially shut down after a series of financial problems in recent years.
Melanie Thielker who the owner of Avination Grid has confirmed the following:
I first joined Avination on 17th January 2012 and since then I’ve blogged about the Avination grid from community events, big news stories, grid improvements and much more. Back then there were 592 regions, 43, 787 registered users with 3, 226 unique logins (past 30 days). The Avination viewer was 54.9MB in size back then running version 1.5.8.
On the Avination login screen updated recently in 2017 there are 81, 424 registered users, 492 regions with 399 unique logins (past 30 days). These screenshots are from my first day when I arrived at the welcome area of Avination.
It’s a real shame this is the end of Avination now and this is a huge loss for the OpenSim community moving forward I think.
On 22nd January Maria Korolov who is the editor and publisher of Hypergrid Business posted up a new OpenSim Viewer Survey. The aim of the survey is to find out what OpenSim viewers the OpenSim community use the most, what favourite features they like and what they’d want to see fixed in the future.
Apparently one random respondent who completes the survey will get a free virtual reality headset for their mobile phone which sounds awesome. Woooot! 🙂
