Hi Everyone,

We are ready to show the bare-bones of Curio, the new Utherverse Client software, to a select group of users on Dec. 21, 2012!!!

I need to stress that most of the features that will eventually be in our browser are not yet functional, so this preview is not a test as much as it is a chance for a few of our current members to play around in a beautiful new world.

As the next weeks go by, we will add more and more of the familiar functions and new features, and we will conduct more of these previews, which will quickly progress into Alpha tests, where we will be seeking real feedback from power-users; and then into Beta Testing which will expand the groups that will have access even more.

In the meantime, we are opening this preview to a handful of members! We decided that the most fair way to select users was through a random lottery, where you are able to get one entry just for being a VIP or UVIP user, and additional entries based on your activity within the community (as determined by the various rolls that you have attained).

I wish everyone luck!!!

To enter the drawing, please visit the Curio Lottery Entry Page!

Cheers and good luck,
--Brian

not to be a negative Nancy here, but I'm a bit puzzled by the final text...

Quote:
Those members selected will be placed into a specific group that will be allowed to access Curio for a period of 4-6 days starting on December 21, 2012


That would put the very first group over Xmas and many people travel during those days (I WILL be home and ready if I "win" but many others may be traveling / visiting with family 23rd, 24th, and 25th

and for the sake of asking a question with no public answer Wink

Will "core members, who run worlds (ie myself and my crew) get more time to start porting our world into Curio as we will have to rebuild much of the world so we can utilize the new features like weather, lighting, shadows, particles etc etc. OR at the very least will we get a good enough head start to handle the 110 properties we have to work with?

I also have a curious question about this draw. I saw in the entry form that there are slots for designers , volunteers etc etc. Does this mean those people who have those extra accounts or badged are able to enter the draw more times.?

I do agree somewhat with Loki at the timing but one advantage to that time period I can see is that there will be less users over all online and less stress on the main systems. So maybe it is a good thing Smile

The opportunity to take a peak and experience the Curio build in it earliest form is big a deal. There is a pioneer spirit in all of us that would treasure this. It is likely there will be many wishing to be among the first. Choosing by lottery is by far the best approach and has much merit. It would be a unfortunate to be chosen yet not have any time available to participate. Clearing ones slate of activities would be in wise just in case.

From my understanding Loki (and there is a chance I could be wrong) but I do seem to remember it being said that all that is in Utherverse now should be taken into the new client. I don't believe you will have to rebuild anything unless its you wanting to add new things from the new client.

But as I said, there is a chance I could be wrong....just too early for me to go looking Cheesy

Thanks for the chance Brian. I have to point out though that I am surprised the present QA testers, say up to your post, have not been included. It would have been a nice and long overdue thankyou to the people who, over the years, supported all forms of UV Clients and mostly tested and gave feed back.

While that is semi true, but the last video that was posted by the dev team stated that current properties would not work with the new features such as weather, particles, new lighting, shadows etc.

it is my understanding that IF we want to utilize all the new features of the new client we would need to rebuild on new client properties (UNLESS UV creates some sort of bare bones importer that would apply ONLY the props and textures and we then tweak the rest as needed)

I've asked if that would be happening, or if it were possible, but the only answer I got was "Too early" (Paraphrased)

As far as the particulars you are asking about, because this is a preview only and as Brian stated not all the functionality is there yet, it is "too early" (as you said paraphrasedWink ) to know exactly what will be available, and what will need to be done........ and that is because as Brian stated:

As time goes on, and more is added, more functionality is brought into the program......and we go to beta testing, we will be able to answer this question in more detail. Smile

It says you've been here since 2010. Well I've been here since 2007. Does that give me any special privileges in the lottery? No. I get an entry as UVIP and an entry as a designer. With the thousands of members that are likely to submit an entry, it surprises me that you think you're somehow special and should be put above others based on your time here. I would venture to say that there are a few thousand that have been here longer than you.

It's a lottery. It's fair. Keep your fingers crossed and maybe you'll be picked. Otherwise, oh well.

I noticed that too, so I would have to assume you're right about the LD entry. I also thought there would be a separate entry for UVIP in addition to VIP, but there's only one "general" entry. Had I known about this sooner, I would've applied for a WG badge! (kidding)

wow i only applied under my business account lol

it is my understanding that IF we want to utilize all the new features of the new client we would need to rebuild on new client properties (UNLESS UV creates some sort of bare bones importer that would apply ONLY the props and textures and we then tweak the rest as needed)

I've asked if that would be happening, or if it were possible, but the only answer I got was "Too early" (Paraphrased)

As far as the particulars you are asking about, because this is a preview only and as Brian stated not all the functionality is there yet, it is "too early" (as you said paraphrasedWink ) to know exactly what will be available, and what will need to be done........ and that is because as Brian stated:

As time goes on, and more is added, more functionality is brought into the program......and we go to beta testing, we will be able to answer this question in more detail. Smile

I think you misunderstood my reply...

"Too Early" was a big paraphrase in a private response to me in regards to a series of 7 questions I asked in another thread....

sadly many of my questions were NOT "too early" because any company would have figured out those steps PRIOR to creating anything, my questions were pretty much CORE questions, but I understand no one wants to say something that could then blow up at them later so no harm no foul....

I am fully aware of what this really is, more so then most actually, THIS is a "walk through" a "Open House" if you will, as stated in the last video there is not even a prop editor created yet, I am under no impression that people that get into the 21-26th walk through can or will be able to build.

However with all that being said, What 3D said in the video is that Layouts created in the current client CAN and WILL be ported into the new client BUT they will NOT be able to use the new features of the new client, that is NOT because said features have not been created/tested or implemented but because the coding is not compatible.

So what will happen is what you see in the current client with layouts and scripts will be what you get in the new client UNLESS you recreate your current properties in the new client with the new properties, THEN you can take advantage of the new features like weather, new lighting, shadows, particles etc etc.

I did ask IF they would make a second "Porting" method where it would strip everything out of a layout except for the props and image maps / links and then people can add in their lighting and other new effects, make changes and tweeks as needed etc etc, THAT would solve a HUGE part of the "problem" but sadly the answer was "too early"

So yeah, Loki Land will need to rebuild all properties inside the new client IF we want to utilize all the shiny new toys (and if not using those toys what's the point of being in the new client?

Sadly Loki Land may need to be shrunk to make up for all the extra work that might need to be done, it took us 6 months of marathon building (and more money then I care to admit publicly) to get Loki Land up and running, I really can't see doing that all over again if we don't have to, so I really REALLY hope the office folks DO have proper solutions in place or there will be many many irate people.

Last but not least I'm gonna go out on a limb here and point out something that MANY people don't seem to understand IF I am wrong then staff can correct me Wink

The new client will NOT be ready for mass public usage (Like we do now with the current client) for at LEAST 10 more months, Alphas, Closed Betas, Open Betas and finally Public Betas normally take 10-15 months depending on issues, additions, removals, debugs etc etc etc, I've heard so many people tell me that Dec, March, April etc will mark the opening of the new client....

This has lead to a slew of rumors in world, bullies etc, people not wanting to buy clothing, layouts, doors etc all because they "heard" the new client opens in Dec, Jan, March etc etc.

There is realistically STILL almost a full year before it opens live to everyone, UV NEEDS TO make that public in every way they can, Emails, In world login screen, forums, mass private mail via the SC, a TINY fraction of people come to these forums, most do not know about them, so MOST of the info spread into world is mearly hearsay and rumors.

Come Clean (so to speak lol) and calm the members down, otherwise as more and more stuff is "leaked" / announced about Curio the more rumors and panic it will cause in world and the economy will take a dive as people will stop spending cause the new client opens _______.

A little bit of actual news is better then "too early"

Lol .. somehow I saw this discussion mess comming...

They should have remain quiet and handpicked people for the very early preview - and not doing this gigantic lottery mess for something that is not even on alpha stage yet. (like every serious publisher does).
People already see a white mouse behind every corner, business owners and designer/deco fell in hysteria because some individuals may catch informations before they do and have a "advantage".

They are doing themself no favor at all the way they doing it.
