OpenSim Standalone Installation Is Great For Local Testing


Unpopular Opinion
Jan 6, 2019
I use OpenSim on a local installation on my computer, and access it with Firestorm for testing created models, and even whole builds.
I don't particularly want to upload every single mesh I'm testing onto SL servers until they are good and done.

The only problem with OpenSim is that it doesn't care much about the models you use or how high poly they are, and scripting may not work the same.
Still, a private testing ground for testing your models, chairs, animations and stuff without having to rely on a buggy testing server is great.

What y'all do with OpenSim?

I have a region on Digiworlds and I was messing around with it building this Zelda thing but I haven't really touched it in a while.

I have an OpenSim standalone covering 4 regions. It's a square artificial island reclaimed from the sea. Originally I installed it for testing but as I developed it it became absorbing in its own right. It's called Standalonia!
