    very excited to see the lots don't have to be gray nothingness anymore. Island lots are going to be cooler now. I like the added UI for expanding the lot sizes, very glad that the ambient sounds got implemeted too, imissed hearing those :) Surprised how well the server is coming along as well!
    Very glad to see so much progress in a relatively short amount of time lately, thank you for all the hard work you've been putting into this project rhys. Keep it up!

    Multiple lots open at once, cos I didnt really show this before. Right now running at 1-2% cpu for both of these lots, and there are still optimisations to be made for routing, placement collision and room map generation.

    I've cleaned up the connection lifecycle a lot more, and it's considerably easier to switch lots. It's also really fast and has a cool animation. :cool:

    WIP for roadless lots.

    Amazing work, can't wait to see the end product, is there a list of things to show whats new in this version by any chance once the global server is up and running? Would love to know what is different to the old TSO and what new exciting plans are being put in place?

    I absolutely love your interior design, that chair facing the wall gives it such a awesome accent.

    That's exterior design.
    Full details on changes will be available when they're relevant.

    How is the global server going? Can you buy lots, build them, create Sims, and everything is in sync?

    I think that chair would constitute as exterior design ;)

    There appears to be an issue connecting to, or any server at this time, does anyone know why by chance? o_O

    yeah... it's still not working. I'm glad I am not the only one having issues. I thought it was my computer at first.

    edit: it is working now!!!

    Skills, Skill locks and Job Titles now working via the TSO data service, with updated UI in FreeSO:
    Working on sync of Skill Locks. After that, need to make sync work while connected to a SimAntics VM. (skill lock requests are routed through vm, we get up to date skill and relationship data from VM)

    Relationship Data Service working with real TSO
    Useful for figuring out how the relationship web should work in FreeSO.

    So much progress made, excellent RHY, curious with the jobs will you be able to make more in the future from the official jobs in the game? even add a situation where you actually go to the job and do the work there so you can communicate with other sims during working hours etc or is that not possible?

    Jobs in The Sims Online were strictly playable multiplayer minigames. See:

    Only the robot job works correctly in our SimAntics implementation. Somethng weird happens to the NPC servers/customers when you try the waiter job, and Nightclub requires special plugins.

    Ah right I never played EA Land, I only played old TSO, is that something that you are able to fix for the global release?
