BlueMars vs Second Life, look and feel BlueMars wins
BlueMars produces an atmosphere, light and shade look more real showing the reality is not just a cluster of objects.
Second Life is just a cluster of objects in a vacuum. Sure it has the community, but for look and feel it is very unnatural and at time unnerving.
Lets be honest. The virtual social community is Second Life. Sure Wizards is bigger, but right now if you are going to "hang out" in a simulation universe that is not a game most likely going it is to be Second Life. I am talking about America and Europe here, Asia has its own mass of virtual universes that put use westerns to shame.
But what about the future? I have to give the technology behind BlueMars points for look and feel. You can see for yourself and BlueMars look and feel is far better.
So for look and feel you have to look to the technology behind BlueMars over Linden Labs server. This is bad news for OpenSim which is a cool project.
Learn more about BlueMars from Wikipedia. If you can please improve the Wikipedia article. CryEngine 2 is the rendering behind BlueMars and Twinity and it is just better looking than Linden Labs server.
