Should New World Studio connect to grids?

Currently, the New World Studio distribution of OpenSim — the single easiest way to get an OpenSim mini-grid up and running — only runs in standalone mode.

This means that your region, or group of regions, is not connected to any grid, but exists all by its lonesome. If you have your routers configured correctly and hypergrid turned on, you will be able to teleport to other grids,  join groups,  make friends with uses on other grids,and send instant messages and content.

But some users might want more. They want to be able to locate a region physically next to the other regions of a grid, so neighbors can walk or fly across. Or they might want guaranteed access to a grid, regardless of what the weather is like on the hypergrid that day.

To find out how much of a demand there is for the ability to connect New World Studio regions directly to existing grids, New World Studio founder Olivier Battini is running a survey.

    Actually if anyone has been around opensim as long as me, New World Grid used to use the old New World Studio to connect regions to their grid. Here is a video of it: http://youtu.be/uFESBcEAnw0

    I used it once or twice over the past couple of years and heck, now I know the reason I couldn’t get it hypergriddable. 🙂 I say if it’s too much a pain for NWS to have it running as hypergriddable then they should leave it as a standalone program. there’s enough fopahs with the others for the end users to be havin another added to the mess, But if it’s at least halfway useable? then sure, bring it on with honesty. 🙂 and let it slowly grow to greatness. No fricken weekly updates(experiments).

    The main reason I have not been using it is because it lacks the feature to connect to OSGrid easily.

    i sit years ago with new worlds studio of the first day’s .. and if i see not problems with hypergrid. but you can have 3 versions of this new worlds studio pack.’s. and i think some people have the smal lite version. and not the commond comunity versions. .there sit hypergrid standard where you some line codes need to change..

    the question is for some people..need new worlds studio a grid link to other grids’s?

    and i see it more the idea for a project more not.

    metro and osgrid have all standard compiled opensimversions i see not hard a change in this last idea the can try and see what this give in the future..
