When the grid started last fall, it had 17 regions. Then it was offline for three months. When it came back in February, I experimented with adding more regions and settled on 25.
The grid has been operating smoothly but I've known all along that 25 regions was pushing it - this is not actually a grid, it's a standalone. I was curious to see how OpenSim would handle things as more prims and scripts, etc. were added to the mix. And I was ready to resize the grid if necessary, no bother really.
However, my need for 25 regions or for multiple time period themes actually vanished on January 1st when I upgraded my plan on the Kitely grid to take advantage of a special grandfathered offer they had at the time. I went from having four regions on Kitely last year, to having thirty now.
With 30 regions on Kitely and 25 on Dankoville, I'm a regular OpenSim land baron! But I don't really NEED all that land.
As my story writing and story building has continued, I've been making some new places on Kitely using my new regions. I have several projects underway there and enough regions for more. And I am able to expand on some of the themes that were represented on the Dankoville grid.
Because of this - and because Kitely is soon to enable Hypergrid - I've decided to reduce the size of my grid and focus it exclusively on the main theme - a 21st century farming area with a couple of central towns...that also lends itself to stories that take place in the late 20th century. All other time periods/themes have been moved to Kitely. (Those regions will open to the public over the course of this year.)
That leaves my standalone mini-grid with 14 regions for now. Twelve of these regions are open to the public for exploring, roleplay or just hanging out. These regions form the mainland while two sandboxes regions are offshore for group members only. The position of the regions on the map have not been changed, other regions were simply removed.
I'll be updating other pages on this website to reflect the new line-up.
