Why Elf Clan Chose Inworldz

The following information is for archival purpose only, as part of Elf Clan's history.



Elf Clan left Second Life due to significant policy issues with host company Linden Lab. There's no need to rehash those things in detail here; Second Life members are widely aware of the problems Linden Lab caused their customers over the years. 



What we'd like to discuss are the advantages of Inworldz, and why we chose that grid for our new home.  At the same time we encourage our members to join us there, for many reasons.


$40 Elf Clan Regions!

Second Life on the average charges $295 or more per region.  Inworldz charges $75 per region... or $60 if you own 4 or more regions.   Elf Clan owns dozens of regions, at a special grandfathered price of $40 per region.  That means if you have ever wanted to own your own sim... you can do so for $40 a month!

(Note: we are limited to 50 regions, so over that prices are at standard grid fees.)



When you purchase a region on Inworldz there are no setup fees.  Compared to SL setup fees of $1,200 per region, that can save you a tremendous amount of money right from the start.



Second Life allows 15,000 prims.  Inworldz allows 45,000... three times the count.   What does this mean for you?  It means you can forget about worrying about prim count.  You wouldn't believe the difference 45k prims makes when designing a sim.


Let us give you an example:  On our home region of ElvenSong we have a fully-populated ground area complete with main castle, a huge fantasy garden, public sandbox, the Elf Clan Museum, Dwagon's Keep (a large castle-home for our dwagons), Cinnamon's Glen, a dancing grotto and the BattleMace / Archery Sports arena.


In an upper level (about 1,500m) we have a 1/4 sim Holodeck, and above that a second one.  At about 2,000m we have an entire Grunge City.  At 3,500 meters we have the impressive Replicant Cityan entire science fiction city / museum / exposition that is one of the main attractions of Inworldz.


And with all that... we still have 10,000 prims left available.   45,000 prims just rocks.



On Inworldz you can build using prims up to 128m in size (or larger with some viewers).  Further, there are no link limits.   It is literally possible (for we have done so) to build a space ship 100m+ long and consisting of 1,000+ prims... link it as one object and fly it effortlessly around the sim.   It is wondrous what the removal of link limits means for builders.



If you've ever built on SL, you know that the L$10 upload cost for textures, sounds and animations can quickly rise to significant levels.  It can literally amount to hundreds of dollars $US for a builder/merchant. 


Inworldz has no upload fees and have announced they never plan to have any.   That fact alone can save you a significant amount of cash.



Inworldz offers 5,000-prim owner/partner build-permit "scenic" regions for $20 a month if connected to a full size region.  That is far less expensive than the 3,500-prim, $250 setup fee, $125-a-month "Homestead" regions on SL.



Elf Clan has dozens of regions on Inworldz, owned by both Eldar and individual members. (That was never possible on Second Life.) Our region owners are very happy and very supportive of our group.   Regular events are held, the Elf Clan Charter is still in full effect, and our family friendly lands are more beautiful, peaceful and harmonious than they have ever been.


So please, come to Inworldz and check out Elf Clan's new home!
