Would Second Life Benefit from an Engine Rebuild? in General Second Life Tech Discussion Posted January 23 On 1/11/2021 at 5:14 PM, animats said: Me too. The technology is here to build a metaverse. SL comes closest. It's just too sluggish. Technically, we know how to solve every problem except large numbers of avatars in a small area. The solution to that is to simply lower resolution locally/do what they already do. They can dynamically allocate further server resources now that they're running on AWS, so definitely shouldn't be a problem server-side.
