Activeworlds goes "Free To Play"

Earlier this month, Activeworlds abandoned the subscription model in their main universe for a "Free to Play" model, where citizenships would be free and additional features would be sold in an online store.

I've been a longtime proponent of this sort of model for AW, so I've returned to the universe and may even resume regular posting on this blog.  I've been updating the Southern Highlands in SW City over the past few days... adding some new SWI Content to the 'Emerald Strand' region of the highlands.

The "Farm Kit" is a downloadable set of AWGs that allow SWI players to farm and cook in the world.
I'll probably be doing some more projects like these as I get time.  It's nice to be back, I've missed being able to build, but the 70 dollar price-point of citizenships just wasn't worth it anymore.
