For about a year now I've been wishing for region crossing lines to either perform better or go away all together. Well, yesterday Adam Frisby, the lead dude in the OpenSimulator movement, made my wish come true! He's revealed the latest advancement in the OpenSim arsenal called MegaSims! Read all about it here: http://www.gwala.net/blog/
The idea is that we can now convert multiple individual 256x256 regions into one massive land offering that have no defined region lines, opening up the opportunity for many new things, such as military and emergency preparedness applications. This is a HUGE new direction for us and we'll be testing it on our test grid to learn how it works and its impact on performance, with the expectation to roll out a product in about 30-45 days if not sooner.
If you have a business or recreational application that you've put off, because of the problem with region lines, then now is the time to contact us and be a beta tester. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with the follow information:
