36:00 – Will Sansar share the Linden dollar? Lots of interesting questions. Probably NO. For various reasons, NO. They will run some type of exchange for L$ and Sansar dollars. Seems the compliance rules and differences in SL and Sansar business models is creating problems. This suggests to me that the Lindens have discovered some ways to exploit for profit the differences in business models that would allow people to make a personal dishonest profit by gaming the system.
I talk about this in my opening…
37:50 – How does one get an invite? There will be a web page in May/June where people can sign up. The Lindens will pick from the signups.
38:40 – Are there plans to transfer Sansar tech back into SL? Ebbe thinks it will be difficult. The tech is substantially different. But, what they are learning, the knowledge, will transfer.
39:30 – Will Sansar only work with mesh or will there be building tools like we have in SL? Over time there will be lots of different tools. They will support third party tools. Support common formats. Also, they have tools in Sansar for; terrain and layout – object manipulation for arranging scenes. Later, tools for making original content in Sansar will be added. But, they have to decide exactly what those will be. Possibly prims… voxel… sculpting… they haven’t decided. Their focus is to handle objects and get good render speed.
For 2016 they are relying on third party tools for building content. The focus is on import and supporting infrastructure and layout tools.
When can we see it?
42:00 – At what point can people see a demo of the tools? What will real time render engine look like? What will market place look like? People want to play with the tools and toys. Ebbe is in the same place.
Listen to this section to get an idea of where Sansar is at this point.
46:30 – Idea of baking content to publish… this is a new idea to me. Well, for Sansar…
Listen to the section…
48:00 What about recent bannings without parties being told why? Every so often the Lab’s enforcement people looking into the world and find problems. Sometimes the people make mistakes. But, mostly it is the usual stories.
These are He said she said where Lab can’t speak publically because they have to legally maintain the person’s privacy. Lab is limited in what they can say.
Ebbe implies they are telling people what they did wrong. And that those getting instant bans were so far past the lines the Lab has no choice.
By the time marks you can see he spends some time on it. Listen if you are into it.
52:30 – There are so many tech and business aspects questions the moderator asks if perhaps they can plan a geek fest and have some Lindens there to answer questions as open beta nears? Ebbe, yes. Again, May or June and they will start showing people more of Sansar. No press has seen Sansar in action. Only some strategic partners have seen it.
More videos to come after June. Will talk more about what it can and cannot do.
Q3 they will be revealing more and more.
56:00 – When will you update your avatar? Ebbe was using a default avatar. Doesn’t know. Soo busy with other stuff. May be some day…
57:20 – Closing comments
