After two days of trying, I managed to login to Kitely. It turned out that there was a bug in their software preventing me from getting in. I was impressed with their quickness in finding a workaround. Here’s my new world:
In case you haven’t heard, Kitely is way to host an OpenSim world in the cloud, at minimal cost. You can create your own world – the size of a sim in Second Life – or you can download free download free OpenSim Archive files that Kitely will use to automatically generate your new world. This picture is of the Faerie Castle world. You can download this and other files at opensimworlds.com/index.php?part=worlds.
I’ll write more about Kitely after I’ve had some time to play with it. In the meantime, if you want to try it for yourself, Kitely is offering an allowance of Kitely Credits to get you started. You’ll need a Facebook account to use it. Eventually they’ll probably offer logins from other sites, but during Kitely’s beta, it’s restricted to Facebook. You can learn more at their website, www.kitely.com.
