So the new TNT Primz are almost here, and I am being asked often if this is a free update to the Skidz Primz, and the short answer is no, this is not a free update. Let me explain why..
First off, I see corporate greed every day, and it sickens me. I can't believe some of the stuff they get away with, and I know how easy it would be to think that this is one of those cases where someone is getting greedy and not giving out free updates. This could not be further from the truth. I often think that corporations get away with this type of behavior because there are so many people working together, reinforcing its that it is OK to gouge there customers. I am Skidz Partz, I answer all my IMs , I make 93% of everything for Skidz Partz, I do this full time, and I hold myself accountable for every action taken by Skidz Partz. I do want to drop in a note that I have great friends that generously help me out very often as well, so I am not alone in my efforts. But the point is, I could not in good conscious rip anyone off, or take advantage of my customers in anyway.
There are several reason TNT Primz are not an update. I admit, I originally started making TNT Primz with the intention of them being an update to Skidz Primz. But as the product progressed I realized there would be several limitations in the direction I was going, limitations the Skidz Primz do not have. When I realized this I considered just stopping right there. I mean, I could not give you an update to the Skidz Primz that removed functionality you had before. After thinking about this long and hard, and discussing it with friends I came to the conclusion, that my other products should not stop me from innovating. With that in mind, I started working in the direction of this being a new product. Thinking of this as a new product allowed me to go even further in different direction from Skidz Primz, allowing me to innovate even more. Not to mention Skidz Primz are not dead. I still plan on keeping them to up to date, and innovating with them.
So what are these limitations? Well for one TNT Primz can not work with huge Primz. While you might not think this is a big deal, from my own research I find to others it is. Skidz Primz is the only tool that does work with huge Primz, and this has been pointed out to me by several customers in the past. So it is important to them. Second thing TNT do not work with normal prims (I mean prims that have no TNT, or Skidz Primz scripts in them). While this is a great feature in Skidz Primz, it does take up a lot of resources. I never use it, but there are several that do. Its also part of the core of how Skidz Primz work, that you don't need everything in a build to be a Skidz Prim. Reason three, is the handicapped. Believe it or not the Skidz Primz allow the blind to build, and really with the way TNT works, it would not facilitate that at all. These are just three of the reasons, there are several more, but they get very detailed and I am sure I put you to sleep already.
But Skidz Primz and TNT Primz will work together right? Yes, but not on the initial release. I have to make an update to the Skidz Primz first.
So, if they work together, can't you just combine the functionality and give us that as an update? I could, you are right. But you would end up with a bloated building tool, and loose the benefits of the weeks I spent making everything run efficiently. Oh, it would still work efficiently, but would be much slower, and require several more scripts in the TNT prim (which has only 1 script).
So why would you buy the TNT Primz?
* They are much faster. Much Much faster.
* TNT Primz take up less resources than Skidz Primz (only 1 script per prim)
* Creative innovations only found here
* New modes like Texture, and RotSide
* Enhanced modes like Move
* Works with Sculpties (with some small limitations)
* New architecture is going to allow me to make some even kewler things now that I have the framework built out
One last note, when I do release the update for the Skidz Primz to make them work with TNT Primz, I do plan on including a voucher for a discount of 1000 lindens. If I can figure out how to get it to work on hippo vendors. But it might be a month or two before the Skidz Primz update is released. I am doing it this way because it requires me to do less work by hand, instead of having to confirm everyone purchase. For this same reason, I will not give you back 1000 lindens if you buy early. I am just one man, and have lots on my plate, and just can't take the time to confirm everything. Sorry.
