Here we are ready to go again! Having marked the start of our break with such fanfare back in November, by burning down our Second Life model, Nic and I went for a tentative start, roping in friends from around the place to stress test our new Open Sim server. When we ran our school trial before the break, the combination of the school’s poor network and the US-based server caused us real problems – avatars failed to load, were booted out and were hard to control. Our new Bristol virtual server seemed to cope better and although avatars took 2 minutes to load on other people’s screens, nobody had any lag with movement. The test is hardly conclusive as we were using our own university wireless network, which is a lot more high spec than that run in most schools, but it was a good start. There does seem to be a glitch with the bots, which we were worried was a sign of system overload but Nic has since tested them and it seems we have some work-around solutions. My only immediate worry is that Gwendoline seems to have lost her skirt somewhere – very unlady-like and I shudder to think what she’s up to while I’ve been away…

    Hi! Glad to see you up and running again!

    I know a team who are doing some excellent work with bots in OpenSim – we featured them on our Designing Worlds show about different virtual Titanics. Perhaps they could advise?
