I would like to see weather in AW. The world owner could schedule it, or
have it randomized. this would make it much more realistic

Hiya :-) times two, ya know, you can do that with a bot, like prestons can
easily be set up to change the world features to however you want in a row,
and then be set at times - also, awteen has something like what you're
talking about, it's called thor, which is also a bot program, and most
people hate it anyway :-)

Maybe he means rain in a world. We have fog, but not actual rain, snow,
hail, whichever. Good video card would be required for such, unless the rain
is like the skybox which 'follows' you as you move around... But then again,
what good would that do if you enter a building? Still raining indoors....

looks like rain over the backdrop, spose someone could make snow etc.

you don't really need superb vid cards for that, just use a particle system
(a trick is to have a small one that follows the camera, you won't really
notice any difference), RW has got them (Roland said so himself).

mmmm...particle generator-ness.

It wouldn't be so hard to implement either and would be a huge improvement.
If I was Roland, I'd put that right at the top of my list. It would
certainly be impressive and help draw in those vital new cits.

no, it's Ricky's and JPy's, and we know what they usually do... pick the
features their business partners want (hmmm, do they HAVE anyone right now?
maybe they won't pick any features lol)

I'd sure hope they do, we're going to be paying 6.95 a month very shortly
and I'll be waiting for the new and improved AW 3.3 and it BETTER BE GOOD!

Save 14 dollars a year by paying the simple annual fee of 69.95 :-
Cheapness!

Cheap, not when there's other uniservers out there ;)
And not when living in Australia which makes that twice that amount, approx.
No thanks :) Not unless AW 3.3 is that good and for the AW Uniserver ONLY.
Cause if I can get all these features in another uniserver, why pay more
here?

hmm because the other univerese have about 1-30 people on them, hmm, don't
always have people ready to help, aw always has small updates, fixes, great
interface, wonderful worlds, tons of them, hmm what else.....

great interface??? no greater than any of the other universes (DUH! it's
the exact same software). 1-30 people? think again. not helpfull? again,
wrong. great worlds? other universes have that too... tons of worlds isn't
the same as tons of GOOD worlds, many are just 3DHPs and the rest are
private or AlphaWorld clones for many...

Yep, I didn't quite like the way you butchered all other universes like
that, with bad information :-)) I guess I defend other universes because of
the wonderfull time I had in the VectorScape universe (as long as it
lasted) and because all the silly errors and stupid policies the AWC are
introducing piss me off, so I'd rather defend the alternatives to AW...
