I swung by last night to check out the fun and found that the section I explored resembled much of the welcome area and organization of the real Burning Man event. I also stumbled across a creative build by AM Radio and chatted with both AM and his friend Astra (I’ll try to grab a snapshot later).
I would have spent more time there except, well, the lag was out of sight. Perhaps not by 2006 standards, but definitely by 2008’s. I just don’t have any interest in walking on the end of a rubber band…especially when I can enjoy plenty of pixellated creativity across the grid without such hassles.
Hopefully things will lighten up later in the week (Burning Life is only open for 1 week – another brilliant move) and the sims will be passable. I really want to see what’s there…much of it won’t be recreated after the event is over.
