Open Sim " .IAR ( inventory archive files ) What Are They ? " "And How Do You Use Them"

By Avatar JayR Cela

     So if you are like myself, and new to Open Sim based Virtual Worlds, you have undoubtedly heard of and begun to grasp the modular approach this open source platform embraces. IAR files or inventory archives serve two basic purposes.

    #1 backing up your personal inventory
    #2 transfer of virtual goods from 1 avitar to another while off world

    For some background reference's you can read here.

    So how do you use them ? Well I intend to find out today and tomorrow as I go shopping for a new wardrobe and various other Open Sim goodies. Stop back later for another read, and a list of web based  .IAR  file location's.

Hi there Lea,

I got so darn frustrated with Open Sim back in July, I decided that I just don't have the spare time time to work with Alpha Software anymore.

I wish I was able to help you out.
