Re: Second chance
A lot of us DO do training simulations for the US and other militaries. We just use OpenSim, or MOSES or OLIVE, rather than Second Life. It's too damned expensive and they have the worst customer service EVER. And they don't like guns. Regardless of that I still find Second Life satisfying and enjoyable, because I have a secret fantasy life there as an architect. Other people, other fantasies; some of them quite odd, yes. I don't think Second Life really appeals to people unless something is just not there in their real lives. Interpersonal relationships, a family, the ability to walk. Whatever. The latency and all that, it's been greatly improved the last year, and the sims are able to support a lot more people in them now, but the greatest mistake they made at Linden Lab was in going with backwards compatability. They've trapped themselves.
