She talks at length about the impact of texture sizes on experience performance.
Bryn also has some words for the people who are constantly complaining about Sansar:
So I have read a fair amount of reviews for Sansar lately and most are fairly negative, which is a bit perplexing to me. Granted Sansar has a long way to go, there are plenty of improvements needed. But to me, slagging it now is kind of like hearing a child sing while playing and saying “God that is not as good as the Rolling Stones.. they should stop singing!” or making a cake and putting the flour in a bowl only to have someone beside you say.. “That is just flour in a bowl! That is the worst
chocolate cake ever!”. Hey, I am not f***ing done, you pantload! Sansar is beta. It opened a week ago. What you see today will not be the same Sansar in a year (if it lasts), exactly how SL was when it opened and then as it grew. Do you know it used to cost money for each TP in Second Life when it opened? A lot of it is testing what works right now and they are constantly collecting feedback as to what people would like added or improved.
But I have faith that all these things will come over time, and because they don’t exist perfectly now does not, to me, mean that Linden Labs are “idiots” as some suggest, but rather that they are at the beginning of a process.
