On many threads ppl are commenting on the differences/similiarities between SL and TSO. I figured it would be best just to make a new thread so the others don't keep going off topic.. This way ppl can put forth their views for and against. That said... It's not so much about who came first.. SL offers a lot more freedom in many respects, creatively, earning potential, interactions, places to visit... the list goes on. In another thread, SL was brought up in regard to a comment calling SL a ***** house, and in that respect, there really isn't much different, except as one person said, it's much more graphical, and ofcourse a there's lot more you can do in SL, rather than a single animated romp in the love beds they have here. If ppl choose to spend their online time doing that, that is their choice. If the makers of SL borrowed ideas from TSO, then good for them, they have done a good job of it. I for one am pleased that the games will be similiar in a lot of respects soon enough, especially the cash-out and ability to script items and make animations, which is what i do in SL. Creatively speaking, SL wins hands down. Not to mention you have basically no limitations when it comes to free accounts in SL as it's easy enough to own land there without being a premium member which is about the only reason ppl need to be premium members there. Ofcourse the weekly bonus of 500 Lindens is worth a lot more than 500 simoleans. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy playing TSO, and am enjoying the new things that they are trying to implement in game. Keep up the good work guys!
