I play swtor....and they have settings for the graphics, so if you have spiffy wow internet connection, you can see turn up the setting and see all the vivid details of the texturing etc, if you don't have spiffy wow internet, you can dial down the graphics to a manageable load so you can still play. I thought we had some former ea engineers in the house...... no?

AGAIN - IMVU IS NOT A GAME, it's a 3D CHAT site!!! Mad =^.^=


All of this! Imvu isn't a game it's a chat site. Those of you that want to play games that are brought into it to appeal to a specific user base that is fine but for those of us that were here years ago when it was an adult chat site where you enjoyed your AP, made friends from all over the world, created and like myself met your mate, fell in love and got married in real life, it is much more than just a game it is an escape and a livelihood and a place that has been home for years.

And while us older users aren't the only users, we shouldn't be pushed out of the world we helped create because Imvu wants to try to rival my Xbox or PS4 which is what I use when I WANT to game.

Their updates and changes need to include and take into consideration all users and what they use the site for and take into consideration that not everyone has high speed internet, 3ds max or Asus gaming laptops. A base user will have gimp, sketchup, photoshop, okay internet and Acer laptops. There are solutions for a happy medium and only time will tell if Imvu chooses to take the high road on those solutions or if they intend roll over and leave behind those that are unable to afford better updated items.

I hope they chose the high road, but their track record isn't the best for that.

...well actually its a business ...and they will always treat it like that regardless if we can afford to keep up or not with the changes... ( such as new computers, internet service etc.) ..as cruel as that might sound to others its the truth and really we cant expect them not to want to exceed and advance into more things that will help that business grow and profit ...its up to us to decide if we hop on board regardless what it takes or move on and leave the site...

.... and its not just a chat site it always was meant to be a mixture between instant messaging and video games thats why you got the interactive avatars or it would just be boring messaging between people of course thats just my opinion on the post

they have to take in consideration all of us, I hope.
I don't have problem running big games.
I did not ask the Pc minimum requirements for me.
even I may need a new Pc, my Pc is a10 year old gamer Pc I made , still run like new . Smile
imvu as a business or game, what may affect us , will affect imvu,( we make imvu )
I dont want to be one of the few left here if no many can play in the future.
maybe we r making a big deal out of nothing , I was in a site that rooms we could unload was 9mb, lots of game animations like real water, real animated fire and the avatars have animation like walking anywhere, dancing moves by default etc.( that was fun)
if they did it and was a small company , why imvu did not make similar changes.
over there was not many pp like here, no much lag but they closed few months ago ( they send emails) and who knows why.

I would like to say I messaged Todd with some questions/concerns and heard back from him within a short time and he was more than happy to clear up all my questions and concerns.

Thought I would share as it's good to know that he is happy to hear and respond which goes a long way with me. Hoping for good things in the future!

Change is scary when it comes to IMVU. Its like the coding version of the Island of Dr. Moreau.

First, Welcome Todd.

To be honest I don't get on the forums as often as I should, other off client things tend to take priority. Nonetheless I worked my way onto the forum to find something completely unrelated and wound up here, reading through this topic.

I was just talking with a friend of mine last night who wants to get into creating for IMVU and making meshes. While a small part of me is happy to hear we are moving onto better things (with the more like a game platform) I cringed as I'm sure so many others have. "New" is not a nice word for IMVU in the past as others have said and now I'm concerned. Very "Cautiously optimistic" if you will.

I've watched as these new changes hurt the community and the number of daily users drop. While I agree that IMVU is behind the times and would benefit from more of a gaming like experience, I worry that this new idea will destroy a lot of things. Also there's the whole "It's great we get new things, but what about all the old broken things we've been submitting bugs on" mentality. Here is this thing that's broken, and all we get is "We'll work on it but here's this new thing to distract you enough until you forget about the broken thing."

If this new gaming concept is the way of the future, what's to happen with the old things? I just started the shop on this account a couple days ago with the intent of filling it with products. Now I'm concerned I'm wasting my time because with the new platform, my hairs may look like garbage if the mesh is even supported in the first place. I'll be the first to admit that I don't know how much impact this is going to put on me and mine.

And that Todd, is something that you should be keeping in mind.

Not everyone who is a creator is educated in tech talk. While some people are like "Yay gaming graphics" others like me have absolutely no idea what that means for the products I've started making now and other products on my alt account. There are and will be legitimate concerns about this whole process, and that's just from the forum site. Do I need to throw out there the thousands of users that don't even USE the website and have no knowledge of any of this. I was one of those, until about an hour ago. Which brings me up to my next topic.

I came to the website to find information on gaining tiers. You mentioned in a previous post that the creator program was a mess on the website with links that didn't work, among other things. I feel that TRANSPARENT information on the tier program should be posted somewhere on the site. I have three tabs open of three Official Tier Level threads that I will end up reading through to try and fish out the information I need to make these tiers. This information should be readily available to the public by IMVU. Why isn't it? Because you're afraid people will flood the catalog with crappy product in an effort to make pro? People do that anyway AND they are spending their money buying credits to do so.... I feel like I shouldn't have to waste my time searching for this information. Hours of reading through those posts that I could spend creating products, and yes I'm a little irritated.

I did quote a couple of your posts I wanted to talk about. I actually have A LOT of questions.... But I don't want to write a novel.

Side note... I may have just drawn that post on a bit. I did just wake up and read your welcome thread. So... The thoughts are still there, just sorry for the ramble.

On a more serious note. I can't find an area where I can look at recent threads I've posted to in order to see if there's been a new post. I see this button below that says notify me when a reply is posted..... but that's going to get annoying I already know.

That would be a nice feature to have. Or if this feature exists, pointing the forum newb in the right direction would be AWESOME. Very Happy

Since the games arent working on our ends,...the overall performance on our corebusiness here already fails.

I ask myself...why put a fail...on fails...?

NEXT DIRECTOR!


P.s!

Segallion:

You promissed me a contact in IMVU. I have it here black on white...you said you will as soon as you are in the office. Does this mean you left the office more than a week ago now? In my surroundings when someone promisses something and states to do something...than doesn't is a non performing link in the chain. I like...that contact now you are over a week late...with either reacting there is no contact...or forgot??? Now carry on...and start digging please. I wanna see sweat tears...like we have on our work now...editing...for instance...Thank you!


Ah yeah and remember...when we bleed...you bleed!
