Carlos Loff has moved his Virtual Lisbon and Space Life projects to DigiWorldz, with plot rentals available for interested residents.

He was previously hosted by AviLabs, the hosting company behind AviWorlds, which imploded messily and publicly last month.

Even before AviLabs fell apart, Loff said he was having trouble attracting residents.

“No one will trust in a grid hosted at AviLabs,” he told Hypergrid Business.

Loff said that he decided to go with DigiWorldz because of the professional service and attitude, a growing and active community, mainstream OpenSim support and support for both major physics engines, good performance and “unparalleled” customer service.

The Virtual Lisbon project is a recreation of the city of Lisbon, and now extends across the equivalent of 320 standard regions. The teleport address for Virtual Lisbon is Lisbon.

He said that there’s an advantage to having a large land area on a stable, existing grid.

“It is better than running my own grid and being responsible for every user´s inventory,” he said.

Loff said that he is currently spending $150 a month for a private server on DigiWorldz.

Space Life

Space Life is a new project, with a large area that users can travel across.

Space-based condos, moons, and even full planets are available to rent and colonize, Loff said.

The planets are designed so that users can travel fully around the planet, and also explore the world’s surface.

“Each oneis  specifically designed with exotic atmospheres and people can travel form one to another and on every planet they have cave systems with traps and aliens and in others they have weird floating creatures and on others they have missions like treasure hunt type challenges where they get a prize if they finish the missions,” he said.

“I’m being very much inspired by Star Citizen and No Man Sky,” he said.

Freebie swap

Loff has already began running a freebie swap — kind of a virtual swap meet — with themed weeks.

This coming week, the theme is chairs, sofas, lounges, and other seats, he announced in a post on Google Plus.

The hypergrid address is Land.
