Let's create the best /x/ exploration team!
>General Guide and How-To
>I haven't seen any threads legitimately result in anything
That's because this is like expecting a Second Life thread to find evidence of the paranormal.
It's just an old-ass virtual chatroom.
I wasn't saying that I expected ghosts, I just mean that usually in these threads, only one guy shows up and he posts four pictures and then leaves. I think it would be cool to actually get a team of people just kind of exploring it. I think one of the reasons that doesnt happen is that the installation isn't exactly straightforward for people that are a little more tech casual. I know it's just a social simulator, it's still interesting and I think it's worth checking out.
nope. it wont start.
okay, i delete and deinstall all the shit related to it, and then follow the guide again. maybe it will work again.
Next time, i save the coords with cool stuff in a txt.
Nigga I explored this shit last year. It wasn't so amazing or mesmerizing, it was just a bunch of odd, creepy, and insane worlds that the entire software has to offer. Sure, there's people who stay there and fuck shit up, but I'll guarantee you that it won't be "Deep Web" tier scary.
So you're not going for the "scare"...
Well..... Unfortunately, you have to download additional worlds.... And do stuff... And yeah.
Ah. Let's face it, I'm lazy. But sign me up you curious bastard. I wanna go.
WHERE WERE YOU WHEN YOU FOUND OUT BOWIE WAS KILL?!?!
David Bowie is dead if you haven't heard
It is a shame how difficult it seems to get /x/ Worlds expeditions off the ground nowadays. I always enjoyed them when they worked out, but each time it happened it was fewer and fewer people until it's just you and another anon.
It might be time to just recreate a Worlds.com homage in a web browser compatible Unity export. This would allow everyone to login and play as simply as opening an itch.io page.
Was "Null" easy to get going?
Woah. Good find.
thats the gz with all the links and smilies right?
This shit has always reminded me of cybertown. Seems like no one remembers it though, used to play the fuck out of it. The jail was the best bit. Public humiliation haha.
Null OP here.
All I had to do was introduce it and people rubbed their crotches all over it. Let's face it. If we made Worlds easy to get into like Null is, we would have more people.
Oh I don't think the NULL dev has anything to do with that. That image is a good example of how strange the Worlds.com team is though, they're very sterile and litigious and don't seem at all like a gamedev company but then again they were started by Microsoft.
If we wanted to recreate Worlds.com worlds in another format using any of the existing user created levels we'd end up sued apparently.
Apparently they just sit around filing lawsuits nowadays against any company that creates games with virtual worlds. They already went after the big dogs I.E. Activision and World of Warcraft. I think I remember this case.
I can't get it to open either :\ not even with compatibility modes. I'll keep trying. And here the BowieWorld folder is staring at me.
me and a few friends went and checked it out today in remembrance of Bowie, it's relatively boring. It's not really creepy, and when you stumble upon the 'singles' room it really makes it obvious this is just some shitty IMVU/Second Life type of chat room with pretty hilarious character customization. The regulars are all just hippies and 35 year old women/men who use it as a substitute for skype/steamchat. nothing special. It's pretty limited for 'exploring' aswell as there's pretty much just bowie world and a few disco rooms/chat rooms. if you want I can go and pick up some screenshots.
Fucking staff of Worlds can keep suing the fuck out of everyone for patent infringement, yet they can never give their shit a patch
What's the fucking point of suing everyone for patent infringement in this day and age when you keep your shit frozen in the same way it has been for the last 16 years or so? Shouldn't be too hard to make a patch or something
old worlds.com player here, if you have questions about it, I'll be glad to answer it
the most useful thing you can do is dump all your worldsmark links for us to use. i have a few, mostly the ground zero skin with all the links and the alternative one with a few different links, but if you have any rare ones i'd be forever grateful :)
Honestly I find worlds more fascinating than creepy, just walking through such an old online game feels like walking through the ruins of some ancient city, sure there's plenty of tourists and shit so it's not like you're discovering something for yourself but it's still neat.
>That shit taste in music
>All those fairy and weeb pictures around the cabin
This place is scary for a whole different reason
