To begin, I've been in ZetaWorlds for about a year and a half now and became a staff member almost a year ago. My title belies my work here, which is varied, a rather wide scope. From greeting new residents to helping with region issues, answering support tickets to dressing up the islands dotting our huge ocean, filling in the Knowledgebase to administrative tasks and more.
Those are some large numbersPosted By: Vincent Sylvester

Naturally still not a very acceptable answer to the ongoing issues, but we will continue to monitor and put pressure on to get the service restored.

Our ocean is now a year old. This project is a lot of fun for us and I want to say a few things about it.
It consists of 118 4x4 water varsims, with an additional 15 regions connected to it. That is an equivalent of 1,888 standard sized sims.
It is about 12 square kilometers of navigable ocean. We use ubODE physics, and we have plenty of boats available which can sail or motor on it. We also have aircraft which can fly over it.

In addition to upgrading the hardware we have started testing a new money module on the regions Gloebits 1 and Gloebits 2. As the name suggest they are running the Gloebit module, which is similar to OMC, but features a much more streamlined process and easier to use interface. Gloebit will be a hypergrid enabled currency, currently Hyperica is also testing this module.

What makes OMC our choice of currency is, that you must OPT-IN to it. This means if you do not wish to use it, you don't have to. If you choose to use it, just head over to Welcome and register at the giant spinning "V" by clicking on it and following the steps.
