I was griefed in late 2011, there was a guy hopping around the hypergrid using some old script to drop balls all over the place. They'd get stuck in the "void" area and you would have to get rid of them manually.The main difference is that there are no griefers, and I have yet to see anyone wandering around with a freenis hanging out.
(I think I got griefed twice in - what was it, 8 years? - in Inworldz, and never yet in OpenSim worlds.)
You can bring freebies back with you from almost anywhere -depending on the permissions set.Of course, you're not limited to shopping on any one grid. Hell, I can even buy things and bring them back to the grid I run at home.
BTW, building on your own home grid can be very productive due to the lack of distractions.
1)Second LifeAside from Second Life, what other virtual worlds are you spending time in? I have recently started exploring sinespace and Sansar, but most of my time is spent in MMOs and open world games.
I would disagree with that. There's less inworld advertising, but the G+ groups have had far more adverts (for events, for products and ...yes... for hosting or rentals) than they have actual discussion.Other differences between SL and the open metaverse is that there's much less advertising out here, and since land is so much cheaper, more people have their own region(s).
What is the content selection like on other grids? I think that would be the thing that would hold me back. I am very particular about my avatar. It's one of the reasons sinespace is frustrating me - I can't seem to make an avatar I like.
In the several HG enabled grids I've visited, the items I've purchased in other grids are automatically placed into "My Suitcase". It's a manual process in Infiniti?they go to your inventory and then you slide it up to suitcase before you leave that grid and you get to take it to your home grid with you (if you forget to slide it into your suitcase, you can't bring it back with you).
In most grids, as far as I'm aware of. It's the default behavior. The only grid that doesn't do that which I can think of is metro, and possibly 3rdrockgrid.In the several HG enabled grids I've visited, the items I've purchased in other grids are automatically placed into "My Suitcase".

NP! As a general rule if you're not gonna need it on your travels, it's a good idea to move things to your regular inventory. Shapes, avatar parts, hair, clothes that you might want to wear being the exception, of course.Ooh I didn't know that about the suitcase and I really don't know about the infiniti question if it's a requirement. I was just told to always move my off grid purchases and freebie grabs to my suitcase so it travels with me. So I do it.
When I head in world this week, I'll have to slide a bunch of stuff out of my suitcase. Thanks for the heads up Han!
