Hi Graham,

Yes, as explained in the FAQ in the blog post announcement, Dedicated Server worlds are prorated the same as all our other world types.

WOW

hmm so it's $150/month for 64 always-on connected high prim sims in Kitely, vs over $19K for the same space iSL, ya I'd say that's competitive.

Hi Ada,

It's one VarRegion that is up to 64 regions in size and contains up to 180,000 prim, which isn't the same as 64 separate SL sims each with 22,500 prims. But that's still a small fraction of what SL charges and our offer is for a single huge continues world running on its own dedicated server, unlike SL which places multiple sims per server.

A question was asked 2 weeks ago at the community meeting about these regions ... i musta missed the answer... it was about how you increased the time out thingy,, the question was if the regions always on why is there a timeout even now?

thanks in advance

At a guess it's because avatars result in additional bandwidth (and a cost Kitely still has to cover on top of the world-running resources) even when they aren't doing things. So it makes sense to log them out if the person behind them is afk for an extended period of time.

But note that the new dedicated-server worlds have greatly extended "user idle timeouts", changing from 1 hour (or 2 hours for the world owner) to 3 hours for everyone.
