SecondLife "Basic & Advanced Mode's" The Difference & Why Linden Lab Need's Starlight"~and~"Phoenix FireStorm"

By Avatar JayR Cela

    Ok most people a familiar with the SL V3 Basic and Advanced mode selection option available on the official LL SL Viewer3 by now. You are also probably well aware of what a totally bad joke this is.

    The Basic mode is completely worthless, after 1 or 2 log-in's to SL., but it does serve it's purpose to keep thing's simple enough as to not scare new potential customer's away. Then we come to the Advanced Mode, which really should be considered as Intermediate Mode. The next logical step ( In My opinion ) should be the Starlight Skin.

    These are proposed by me ( and myself only ) and should be the standard log in option's for the SL Viewer.
Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced, and as an added option,Super User. Which of course would be FireStorm.

   So that much being said, the initial log-in process to SeconLife is severely flawed. There is nothing Advanced about Viewer3's Advanced mode, beside's being a completely poorly designed User Interface. Let's face it this Turkey should have been retired after a 3 month run. Evan HP figured that much out with their Tablet fiasco. Take your loss's then cut and run.

    So this is obvious by now to any long time SecondLife user, or content creator, it will never happen. Thus many of us still cling to the Phoenix Viewer for content creation and building. Why is that ? Because it is a superior product.

    Very soon we about to see the Phoenix FireStorm Team to completely smoke every other SL Viewer available. And all the while the Starlight Mod will keep thing's rolling along, while LL does the job it is supposed to do. Create a solid Open Source code base.
