Thinking About Left Imvu ....and More active on SL

Recommended Posts

It really depends on what you find interesting.  I've never tried IMVU nor have any desire to do so, and since this a Second Life Community forum I don't think I'd be inclined to extol another platform if I had. :)

I'm totally biased but I'd suggest doing so, SL is just superior in many technical and even non-technical aspects compared to IMVU. I've seen some IMVU users who got discouraged because of SL's complexity compared to IMVU, but that's not a bad thing considering how much more you can potentially do on SL

Do it. I'm a former IMVU user and never looked back, just take your time to learn about SL.

I tried IMVU  years ago,so I'm not sure how it is now..

I was only in it for about 30 minutes though to be honest..I just couldn't stand that I couldn't move around on my own..

So really I guess i never gave it much of a chance after that..but dancing and moving around is a big part of what I like in virtual worlds..

 

I guess it depends on what you like most and then choose which one wins..That or just do both still :)

I tried IMVU back when M was around and screwing up SL.  I tried quite a few alternatives then.  But what I didn't care for with IMVU was not really being able to actually move.  A lot of it (for me at the time), seemed to be hopping from one poseball to another,  Yes they animated you, but there was no actual walking from one place to another even within an instance.  SL allows me to act in a more realistic way and do many more things.   

I think I gave it a fair assessment.  I played around in it for a good 2 months.

/me jumps in to derail the thread!

I found out that There is back, under new management.  I think SL is better than any other virtual world, but it's nice that there's another kid back on the block.

I tried IMVU. But I did quit it, as I didn't like the lack of avatar control much. didn't like how only control I had over myself came in the form of poses and not much else.

It really depends on whether you have friends coming with you from IMVU.

Yes, I'd say come to SL. As a IMVU user for 6 years straight, I can assure you that SL is better. More customization for your avatar and no stupid upload KB limit, be creative in what you make. If you lag, just simply adjust your settings, which have way more adjustability then IMVU. IMVU also, from my 6 year experience, has a  💩 ton more community drama then SL. WHICH IS WHY I LEFT.

tl:dr = SL is better.

Used to be very active on IMVU with 52 bans. It is probably better now, the former community manager which starts with 'V' ends with 'arsha' was highly biased with bans to cater to this Christian SJW lady (who was 55 years old), I had lolipop mesh that had its promotional picture taken down because it looks like cigarette, and also pictures of cigarette butts is also adult. 

That was the old administration IMVU had, it is probably better now but I stopped uploading there, the bureaucratic hurdle was too much. 

As a user I would say SL offers a better experience, LL doesn't fly over your head constantly like a helicopter

Tried IMVU. Could not move. Not an inch. Fled back to SL after about five minutes. But whether I could not move was due to my ignorance or a feature of the game I do not know.
