Our most beloved fashion and body beautification blogger did it. Of course she was among the firstest SL resis who got invited into Sansar. And different from other Beta testers she had her camera rolling right from the first moment on. And also she tested Sansar under realistic conditions, without an Octopus but on a normal desktop computer.
Find Berry’s interesting videos on her blog. Or just clicker on it in my sidebar there –>.
Quite obviously it is doable, even if Berry remarks on a jerky camera. But all in all she was blown away by the realism and the richness of detail. Oh my, now even me’s kinda interested in trying it out but I guess my good MiniMax isn’t quite up to the task and there’s one even bigger hurdle: Sansar hasn’t been ported to Linux yet! 😮 😦
Of course our mercurial friends at the lab had to trip into the usual trap for stupids by choosing Microsoft’s Windows as the OS to use. Oh my, why does it alway have to be fukn proprietary kiddies shit they base the most interesting stuff on?
What I found most poignant in Berry’s writeup was this section:
I personally do not have VR Goggles so I have not explored Sansar in that way as of yet, I have only used a desktop computer to explore it. I have tried HTC Vive with other VR games and it made me feel quite dizzy and disoriented so I am not sure if that is something I will get into, but if I do, I will share my VR experiences in Sansar with you guys here on my blog and my youtube channel. If you are wondering what kind of computer I use to explore Sansar, you can see a full list of my computer specs on this page.
Yeah, exactly. I’m not too much into paying lots of money just for getting disoriented and dizzy. Also I can’t and won’t update MiniMe’s specs anytime soon. I’m specswise still above the average SL resident I believe, and for my one or two weekly trips into our fancy little virtual world it’ll do some more years I guess. Probably longer than LL will keep up with their promise to keep SL alive and online. And then there’s still that fukn incompability with Linux. So adieu, brave new
world collection of unconnected experiences.
