After being a standalone region grid for a year or more, we have decided to join a grid. We have had a few successes as a standalone, first run by me on a VPS, and secondly hosted by Oliveira Lands, where Fernando Oliveira did probably a lot more work than he bargained for in keeping up with the demands of a busy standalone! If you are looking for hosting that connects you to an open grid such as OSGrid, he is highly recommended.
As the demands of the sim grew, I decided that it was time to join a grid. Some of the reasons for DigiWorldz:
- There is already an active music scene there
- They have a Podex traded currency, making it a viable intergrid currency without the problems experienced in trying to get Virwox’s OMC currency to work. I can still send currency to YRgrid to get Bitcoin goodness
- 15,000 prim varregions are cheap for the rest of this month (click on the logo if you want to order one, which is an affiliate link that supports Pirate’s Atoll)
- 24/7 monitoring (good for us night owls that host events when most people are asleep)
