SL has some competition with new cheaper virtual environment

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Avatar Hangout uses the same viewer and application as Second Life but is attempting to provide a cheaper alternative. A lot of the big sims in SL are already looking to move across as SL prices increase.
    Full Sim with full perm
    65536 Sqm with 15000 prims is only $75 USD/Month

    Full Sim with Low prims and full perm
    65536 Sqm with 5000 prims is only $45 USD/Month

    ½ Sim
    32768 Sqm with 7500 prims is only $38 USD/Month

    ¼ Sim
    16384 Sqm with 3750 prims is only $20 USD/Month
    Just an example of the cheap available land on Avatar Hangout.
    Other advantages include free uploads of textures and sounds for a limited time and the ability to freely create mega prims.
    At the moment it looks a bit rough but I can predict a price war as these new open source sims start multiplying.
