    WTH, Drax! I thought we had a deal that you’d mention me in every episode? I knew I should never trust a commy!

    Nice interview with Ebbe, but of course we always want more, especially on Sansar.

    Many of the changes that happened with Bento, are leading to ways of simplifying things for the users, while also giving the user many more options, and the creators many better ways to create content. At the Content Creators Group meetings(previously the Bento Group meetings) Vir Linden has been talking about mesh avatars being able to use all of the same clothing layers that the default avatar has. This will massively improve many of these mesh heads and body, because those mesh parts will no longer need to create their own layers system, which massively increases their rendering costs. If implemented, it makes every avatar like the default with body shapes sliders, and clothing layers. That vastly simplifies things for the end users.

    To Ebbe:
    Once some time has passed for more creators to make Bento avatars, and parts, I’d love to see LL do a decent size marketing campaign around the SL avatar, and what is possible. I think it would generate a ton of new users.

      I’ve heard LL bought fifty dollars in google ads to promote it.
