Maximum avatar limits ?

Recommended Posts

Hi all :)

A friend was telling me in the early days of SL she had nearly 400 people in one region at a live concert.  Perhaps I never explored enough or the limit was changed before I signed up, was this ever possible ?

Well, one region, at least today, can - in theory - hold up to 100 agents, according to http://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Limits#Land at least. If you put a stage at the conjunction of four adjacent regions (well, stage in one of them) you can keep 400 agents around it... but most probably simulator would not be able to run too stable in such environment. Nonetheless, maybe that's what your friend had in mind?

Maybe a typo, 40 would sound more believable - I never saw more than 150 avatars at once , not even at the firestorm major events area which would feature that 4 sim corner setup @panterapolnocy mentioned.

However really crazy stuff like SLXB events maybe could have that big number

The 400 must be a typo, it was a maximum of 40 for the longest time, until they upped it to 100 at some point in the last couple of years.

Thanks for the replies :)

400 did sound hard to believe in one region, it wasn't a typo, she has said it a couple of times

Update: ... Apparently it was 2006 ?

Revision from June 2008 does mention 40 avatar limit, yet the one from July 2008 states that the limit was/is 100 (if enabled, I guess - and per "island"). Not remotely close to 400 per single region, however.

So, 100 per region and at a four region corner you could get 400. I've been to some heavily populated events and it was not fun. You couldn't see, hear or move. A live concert with 400? I doubt it.

+ 10% premium bonus allotment + owners 

I think the highest I ever saw was either 109 or 112, cannot remember the details though and yes it was laggy as hell.

 

PS: what actually is posible is 400 people tuning in to the stream however (from other regions/outside SL)

Nonprofit Commons had a region-opening party in spring 2008 that got up to between 70 - 75 avatars. The region was fairly simple, but at that point things just stopped. A couple of Lindens came in and tried to fix it, but in the end they restarted the region. I doubt anyone could get to 100 for long.

ETA: Fairly recently I've been on a region that was near 100 avatars and I could still move around. There weren't many resource-hogging avatars though.
