OpenSim Festival 2019 Happening In Early March


The OpenSim Festival 2019 will be taking place from 1st to 3rd March with live performances and there will be plenty of great exhibits to check out via the hypergrid. Above is a short new promo for OpenSim Fest 2019 which is going to be incredible.

A full festival schedule will be posted nearer to the time.

See below for more details…

What is OpenSim Fest?

From the ashes of AvatarFest it is with great pleasure we would like to announce Opensim Fest rising like a phoenix. OpenSim Fest is the celebration of the strength and diversity of the hypergrid user community. For the community, by the community. The format, the idea and the aims of OpenSim Fest will stay true to AvatarFest and we hope to be worthy custodians for Han and Eryn.

We do not represent corporations, companies nor grids – we are the customers, users, builders and dreamers who live out here, sharing our dreams and creations with one another.

OpenSim Fest Weekend and beyond

There are two parts to the festival, the first is the weekend of live performances on the Opensim Fest grid on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of March 2019. and secondly you will be able to visit the region via the hypergrid to see the exhibits until the 6th April 2019. Nearer the time of the festival a full schedule will be posted and pages will be posted to the site with a full list of performers and exhibitors.
If you have been an exhibitor or performer and have anything on the festival region or in your grid avatar inventory you will need to export or transfer it by the 20th April 2019. All the grid databases, the region, website and grid accounts will be deleted on the 21st April 2019. The only thing that will remain throughout the year will be the main website as we will be using that each year.”

What can YOU do to be a part of OpenSim Fest 2019?

Exhibitors, performers and volunteers will be asked to join the Discord server so we can communicate easier. To join the Discord server click follow this link in your browser https://discord.gg/T7QN2mZ (discord is a very useful real time collaboration tool and there is a desktop app you can download). We encourage all to participate and be a part of the Community festival.

You can come by and visit us at Expo region 5/Booth number 26 at this years OpenSimulator Community Conference (OSCC 2018) if you would like to ask us any questions or sign up as an contributor to Opensim Fest. Finally the grid will be open to the hypergrid so anyone can come and then in January 2019 the region will be restricted to builders (then the builds will a surprise at the fest in March).

Please spread the word 🙂

Islandz

The new Islandz website is now up and running this week. It’s important to note that the Islandz website is still under development and some key features are not available yet.

It’s estimated that the new Islandz grid may be opening within the next few days or so which will be great news. Apparently accounts and logins are expected very soon. Registrations for new users are currently closed until the email and new inventory skeleton creation has been connected up with it successfully.

In the meantime it’s recommended for everyone to download the new Islandz viewer from the downloads page. You can use the Firestorm viewer if you prefer too. It’s worth reading the FAQ before you get started on the Islandz grid for some useful information.

The long wait is almost over. It’s good to hear that things are coming along nicely now and the big launch is just days away. Elenia Llewellyn and Jim Tarber have worked so hard in the past three months or so to build this new grid from the ground up after the closure of the former InWorldz grid back in the summer.

More updates soon.
