A growing & Thriving World!

Inworldz has grown tremendously over the past month, this is what we have waited & held on for, our world to grow. We always had faith in our founders & have all done our best to support them in any way we could do... now its beginning to pay off... smiles

In the beginnings mostly there would be only 1 or 2 of us online at once, sometimes no one at all, that would put off any new residents who ventured within , now when you go to log in there is a minimum of at least 16 online at once & that grows daily. A few weeks ago I did a double take when i noticed 49 online at once.. of course there are a lot more members now, we reached 2000 yesterday & were well on the way to 3000.

We have a lot of creators joining our world & that will all help us to grow even more. We know the future is looking bright, we have always felt that within Inworldz... never doubted or lost faith or had any cause for complaint against our Founders, they build this world for us.. the residents!

We know of all they have in mind for the features that will come once the grid is more stable... some mind blowing stuff is on its way & that is what W/we both work towards now, as well as creating for our residents we are looking towards the future & beyond

Its great to be a part of this world.. INWORLDZ!! Come join us, you wont be dissapointed, believe me ;)

Sept 4th 09 ~ Mentors

This week, along with other Residents of Inworldz, I took on the job of Mentor. Greeting & meeting new Residents coming into the Grid. We help them to get from Ruth to ruthless hehe. Give them information, like how to use SI etc & basically Welcome them to Inworldz! I have met some really lovely new people this week & we have had quite a few Register with us this week too. Inworldz is growing! Yayyyyy

As I have mainly been building around the Welcome island it has been quite easy for me to meet any new Residents coming in, as i am in the area & inworld for a lot of hours too.

I look forward to continuing on with this role in the coming weeks, giving as much time as I am able to, welcoming our New Residents.... its quite fulfilling.

Thank you Inworldz
Smiles & waves

August 23rd 09 ~ profile picks fixed

We all Love to have our picks on our profiles, we all use them for different things, I use mine to advertise my stores & also to let ppl know what I am thinking hehe

Now we can create our Picks on our profiles in Inworldz..... its all coming together, no big hallabaloo about things, no broken promises, no downtime just pop in & whoosh more coding work has been done to make our virtual lives better....

Well done Inworldz!!
Smiles & waves

July 5th 09 ~ Inworldz has currency!

My 1st sale in Inworldz ..... I am Happy, hopefully it will be the very 1st of many more to come.

Heres to Inworldz!!! 

 July 28th 09 ~ We now have a working ATM on the Inworldz Welcome Island & 2 in SL.... yes you got it, we can transfer L's to I'z & Vice versa

So your money is not going to be stuck in one world you can easily transfer money between them. Ideal for everyone

You can find one of the ATM's at my Store in SL Inworldz ATM

Happy Gridding..... smiles & waves

July 24th 09 ~ Search Fixed for Classifieds

Ele has fixed the Classifieds, we now have working Classifieds in Inworldz

Oh and thats the worn tab we now have on our inventory too.... smiles

Notes on Profiles is also working, not that i have ever used that feature hehe

So many things actually do work in Inworldz, creating my Fashions is so much easier than it was on other grids I tried, I am so glad I found this one.... Jeesh I better get back to stocking up my Huge store haha

July 21st 09 ~ Inworldz new Viewer

The new Inworldz Viewer 1.0.08 has so many new functions it will make your head spin!

Best one of all is..... You can transfer your creations (objects only) from SL using the Meerkat viewer to Download your creations to your Hard drive.... then using the New Inworldz Viewer, you upload the file & Wooosh! your object is right there in front of you..... a 50 prim flexi skirt on a spiked belt took just 2 seconds to build itself right in front of me....

This is far better than SI coz it protects the creators copyright....
This place is a creators dream

July 14th 09 ~ Inworldz Website

I have said a lot about the Inworldz grid, being stable, having currency et etc... yeah i know I go on about it, but I can't help it, this World just amazes me & in so short a time & after the bad experience I had in OL, well its simply the Best IMHO & that needs to be said!

Anyway it isnt just the grid thats fab, the website may not look much at the moment, but inside on my account I can access....

Check Transactions - from here I can check all transactions on my account.... its simple right now, but is being worked on ;)
Account Settings - Here I change password, join the Beta grid
Inventory - This is Brand new this week... I can access my inventory, move things about etc... without even being on the flippin grid! How fantastic is that???
Region Support - this gives me info on my region & allows me to pay for tier with 3 choices... pay month by month, pay 3 monthly, pay by subscription & it all updates automatic
Buy Currency - well obviously I can buy currency of course hehe... as far as i am aware we can only do this via our accounts for now, but I am sure this will be available by hitting the buy button on the viewer at some point in the future ;)
Partners - Yes you can partner here too ;)
View Support Tickets - You can view any support tickets you have sent in, but none of us really need to send in support tickets much as we rarely have anything to report :P
Bug Reports - this takes you to the Mantris, this is where we report any little findings, on the grid, on the website, in beta w/e... again not much to report :P
Download Viewer - from here you download the viewer obviously :P

You can also get to the forum via the website & if you do happen to report anything in there it is dealt with ASAP.... not Ignored :P

May 2nd 2009 ~ IW Journal

Day 1...

This Morning I logged in after hitting that pay button. I
have not really been in much over this weekend, as i have been
sorting some things out in SL for my store etc.... First i go to
the Forum, find a few new ppl have joined up & some more Land
has been sold, so its all looking good ... smiles. Inworld I find i
am bald & can't wear the Hair I normally wear, so i leave a
posting of this in the Forum, knowing Ele will pick it up as soon
as she logs on, being on different time zones, I know I will
probably wait a couple of hours for that, but thats ok as i know
she will see it & reply to it as soon as she does see it.
Anyway I messed around for a bit then logged out to go & do
some other things.... just logged back into inworldz & Ele has
not only replied to my post, but she has fixed the darn bug that
prevented me from attaching my hair.... jeeessh that woman works
fast! So I have my normal Hair back on my head..... Big Smiles
Oooeerrr apparently it was Loki who fixed it... so Big TY to
Loki.... smiles

Day 2... I didnt have any problems inworld today
infact i found a bonus! Something I can do in Inworldz, that i have
never, even now, been able to do in SL. I have had a few orders
come in for clothing in Inworldz so I am busy working on those for
my Customers... its all good so far. I have completed my Store so
now I will fill it with the clothing I feel will be ok in Inworldz,
I don't really want to start having to make lots of prim clothing
until things with attachments are a bit more.... stable. I have not
come across any major problems as yet though, but then I have only
made sculpty shoes, they seem to be attaching ok, but there is
still that zero rotation problem which seems to be an Opensim bug,
error whatever. So I am going to keep to mainly system clothing for
now, with maybe shoes & maybe a flexi skirt here & there. I
have now moved on to building opposite my store, this will be a
garden feature, with Butterflies & fairies, waterfalls &
fountains... a place of beauty & peaceful meditation.....

Day 3.... I was Inworld at about 1.30am GMT last night when I got
bumped & couldn't log back in to my sim, so had to log back in
to the sim next to it, walker lane (its handy to know the names of
the sims around you hehe) So landing on walkers lane, I looked at
the map & saw that my sim was looking unhealthy sort of Sick ~

alt="" width="400" height="250">

But I could fly into the region, no problems, once there
though I soon would crash out, so I reported it in the forum, then
logged for the night.

First thing I do before going inworld is go
to the forum every morning because with me being on a different
timezone I know there will have been some activity during the
night... ie: Ele will have replied my post ~ I cannot tell you how
refreshing that is after the nightmare of no communication at all
in OLG, but Ele knows all about that herself, so i am sure there
will always be a provision for making certain Customers niggles or
worries are at least answered. Sure enough Ele had replied a few
moments after I had logged for night actually, to say that the grid
had received a restart, so all should be well now. It was, I
managed to log back onto my sim, no problems, but 'oh what was
this' I had a view! Before, cactus Flats had been surrounded on 2
sides by a sheer wall from the Mountain terrain on the 2 adjacent
sims, but Mang had been busy during the night 'Moving Mountains'
hehehe well actually he just flattened em, but he did it soooo
well..... smiles. So cactus Flats now has an all round view.... I
wonder though if maybe it was the removal of the Mountains that
made my sim look sick on the Map??? I wouldn't know not being
techie, but all is well again now I am busy making my caves &
waterfalls... My Peaceful Haven... Bliss!

Day 5.... I was mainly busy in SL yesterday modelling my new releases.... oh a designers work is never done hehehe In Inworldz I created a new crystal Cave & I am now making up flowers & things for my Gardening
area. Prim flowers, sculpted flowers, sculpted mushrooms, flexi
flowers & trees, waterfalls.... I love creating. Once i have
completed all this I will move on to my Furniture & Furnishings
Today has been eventful LOL This morning around 6.30 grid went
offline so i went in SL for a bit till it was back. Then when I got
back in, I made some lovely new prim flowers & a prim water
lilly 92 prims.. as I was trying to link the lilly it wouldnt work,
so i figured I must have crashed & relogged..... when I got
back I found this
alt="" width="320" height="240">
A watery space were my once beautiful sim sat... so I relogged
again... still no sim & I couldnt move, Inventory wouldnt
load.... panic sets in..... contacts support via Forum..... waits
for a bit.... logs back in there is my sim, checks the forum... Ele
replies... apparently there was an error somewhere so she moved a
few things about to fix it or something, had done a grid restart
& all would be fine now..... ROFL Theres been a new CPU
installed so there are bound to be a few hiccups... I have crashed
quite a bit today, but I still crash in SL anyway so no difference
really. Except in Inworldz I can build to my Hearts content without
worrying about the prims..... Big Smiles

Day 6.... SAVE SAVE SAVE I MUST REMEMBER TO SAVE!! BOO HOO I get so carried away with what i
am building that sometimes i forget to save as i go & then i
crash, come back & have to start all over again... gggrrsssss
Is my own fault though for not saving!!!!

April 26th 2009 ~ Purchased Sim

Well I have done it!

I have finally Hit that pay button & bought me a Mainland Region in Inworldz, so my Lovely new Building will have a Home after all.

As for LCO well, I did like their set up & I do still have my store in their Main building... I think, but after the Simone affair I think it sort of killed them off a bit, as not many ppl go there........... I only had 1 sale in almost a Month from that grid, yet in OLG where my Store is still in Newstead I am getting sales every week, not much good to me as I can't get out my money, last lot I gave to a friend, the lot i had before that another friend cashed for me.... My region there expires on May 8th & I wont be renewing it, so I doubt I will ever have access to my money!

So I own a sim again, an affordable sim in a world where ppl know what they are doing & if you do report a bug they welcome it so they can fix it & that is how customers should be treated! Whether we pay or not we are all entitled to some customer service, in OLG you have none even if you own Land. In SL now I am not a landowner anymore, I have to wait it out & can only ask certain questions, which kinder sucks but that is SL for you............. its all about the Money with them.

Inworldz has a different 'Feel' to it... I like being in there & I am going to love building on my sim ( flat gound so much easier to play with ) so watch this space coz i intend to journal my pioneering days in there..... :P

Smiles & waves

April 22nd 2009 ~ New Store in IW

Built with all of my Heart & Soul, a fine Mansion/Castle to House all of my Designs!

Really proud of the Grand Staircase & French Doors that open & close because in SL I always had a problem with stairs & Doors. It is 2 stories High with roof top access, I can easily remodel this for a Large Home. Now all I need is my own sim to place it on so I can start placing in my Designs..... That should be accomplished very soon in Inworldz


April 18th 2009 ~ Building in IW

I have taken to Building again... I have a new Dream now in Inworldz & I think this is where I might settle on to Build my Dream. I have already begun my Building... its on Flat land so I dont have to navigate in or around hills & mountains, so much easier to build upon. I am getting a feel for the place I am in Building on & I like the feeling I am getting, so this will be the Sim I will purchase ~ just need to put everything in place ready before I hit that Pay button & commit to the subscriptions.

I believe Inworlds Could work because it has a Team of ppl dedicated to making it work. Foundations are already set in place... yes its beta, and there are bound to be Hiccups along the way, but I feel this Team will listen & will fix problems & bugs as they appear.

I feel deeply for my newfound friends in OLG who have already sunk too much in to that grid to just pull out now, so they go on hoping each day that things will change... I just do not feel that they will do anytime soon, that is why I pulled out, I only wish I had not just made my last tier payment the day before I made that decision. I had doubts before I paid, then decided to give it 1 more Month......... I should always listen to my own inner voice because it never guides me wrongly.

Now back to my New Dream

The Beginnings...

My Grand Staircase... always wanted to try building these, I have never been able to get stairs right before.... now look...

Fit for a Queen hehehe

Taking Shape

days end.... smiles with satisfaction!

April 14th 2009 ~ Prim hair

After so many times of trying to make prim Hair I have finally achieved it!

It isnt fantastic & is only prim, no flexi yet, but its a beginning & now I know I can do it I can begin perfecting it as I do with my Designs. I made it in this Light Auburn, a Light greyish black & a Black

I made it Inworldz... it is easy to build there.. very quiet, no hassles, no problems, clean air hehe

I realy do enjoy being in there!

April 13th 2009 ~ the beginning

I think I have already mention how impressed I am with LCO & their support, well I am realy impressed with Inworldz! at the moment. From a content creators point of view they seem to have things under control in this Brand new World. I have tried some light scripts & they seem fine. Making up clothes seems a lot easier, than in other new worlds. I am just making up a Bag of my Freebies to drop at their Welcome centre, which is beginning to look very good.

So well done to all of you techies over there!

me in Inworldz!
