I thought this following post will be called Aetherea, have the invitation to the sim and Fairelands, have the beautiful captures by Faire photographers, the SLurl, the plans, the path of work that got me to the completion of a new world and the post date would be Thursday 19.
So why am I writing to you on Monday 23?
Because In the past 70+ Hours since the Faire opened I was on a long journey on saving that World.
I can go into details on how we opened new areas for display, how I under the table rebuilt the sim over and over, changing the physics, lowering the object load, analyzing every single script and reducing the region's lag footprint to almost zero with the live help of Faire staff and Linden Labs, and nothing really solved the issues.
The Gates opened letting in enthusiastic and excited wonderers and I was under the floating Temples trying to support them with what I had and it wasn't enough. With the intervention of the Divine Linden hands all the Faire moved to new different speed servers after the initial hiccups but Aetherea kept shattered. To make things even worse, the sim restarted during LL duplication process and Aetherea scattered as multiple shards and mirror images of herself on different servers: a region with multiple layers of consciousness.
Ultimately we decided for a backup plan that became the main solution and we are working on it now: I am currently rebuilding Aetherea from scratch on a new region, merchants are setting up again and LL will test her as best we can before we replace the current one with the fresh new one.
So this is why, except a few eggs, you are not seeing much more releases from me and there's a lack of an official invite. I worked too hard to have a sim visitable only during SLT night hours and then go completely dead and frozen. The Faire need a strong link, not a sick one, and we are healing it.
So here's an unofficial invite until I can properly invite you,
An official Post by the Faire Team:
A Beautiful Story about Aetherea:
