The Worst Sim In SecondLife?
Yes, I visited “The Toxic Garden Rezzable” – and no I’m not going to give a location for it – search for it if you want to go there.
Worst sim? Yep, definitely the worst for lag I have ever experienced. Admittedly, it’s not finished yet, but that just means that there’s more objects and scripts to go in it, so it’s likely to get worse.
Which is a shame, because I’d enjoyed the Greenies Home, also by Rezzable, and the idea behind this one seemed good – a place full of toxic plants that can kill you if you’re not careful. But they never said that the thing that’ll kill you is the lag. And don’t think I didn’t give it a fair chance – I logged in half a dozen times, set my draw distance to the minimum, and cleared my cache.
But I never lasted more than a couple of minutes before everything started to freeze, I became stuck to the spot, and even opening my inventory took minutes.
There’s a device you can pick up and wear that protects you from the poison plant fumes, but it took me a dozen tries before the Buy for zero$ option came up on a right click, and an equal number of tries before I was able to wear it.
And when the big freeze came, it was impossible to teleport out, either to my home location or to a landmark – which means I’m probably going to end up back there when I log back in!
Actually, on rereading the above, I decided I was being a wee bit harsh – the place is still under development and things may improve – and they do have some nice trees. I may go back.
