mixi app "Sunshine Bokujo(ranch)" got 5M users

"Sunshine Bokujo" is an agriculture social game most popular in Japan. ("Bokujo" means a "ranch" in Japanese.) This app started service at the same time as mixi apps started in last August. Thereafter, increased the number of the users steadily while various problems occurred.

But, Sunshine Bokujo isn't a social game developed in Japan. originally, Chinese social game developer "Rekoo Media" developed.

Rekoo Media Ltd.

Rekoo Media sponsors a similar agriculture social game in Chinese SNS and MySpace.

MySpace ver.

Many Japanese users complained first "Funny Japanese! " (Translation was strange). And many Japanese still prejudices against China and a Chinese. Nonetheless Sunshine Bokujo got 5M users.

The fun thing transcends a language, nationality and prejudice.

3Di, Inc. Strengthens Features for Coordinating with Third-Party Member-ID Services on the Web 3Di OpenSim Enterprise 2.0

There are much press releases recently.

3Di, Inc. Strengthens Features for Coordinating with Third-Party Member-ID Services on the Web 3Di OpenSim Enterprise 2.0, Latest Version of the Software Product for Avatar-Based 3D Virtual World Construction , Launches Friday, June 25

3Di, Inc. (head office: Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, President & CEO: Satoshi Koike), which develops and offers 3D Internet solutions, announces the June 25 (Friday) product launch of 3Di OpenSim Enterprise 2.0, the latest version of its software for construction of 3D virtual worlds. 

【Main New Features】
●3Di Connect
This feature makes it possible to log in to the virtual world by using a third-party, external system for membership authentication. Because no authentication is performed on the OpenSim server itself, and because authentication is allowed to occur under the control of administrators of existing web services, it is not necessary to pass individual customer information to OpenSim. This makes it possible to more easily and more safely construct independent community-based virtual world services that can cooperate with already existing web services. 

●64-bit support (Windows Server 2003、2008、2008 R2)

●Proxy support
By using HTTP tunneling technology, this feature makes it possible to connect to an OpenSim server from inside of proxied network environments as are often used in corporate or similar networks with strict security. Clients can connect without requiring any open ports other than the SSL port (443). ※Note: In some cases, it is possible that transmission efficiency when using certain proxy servers may be considerably reduced. 

●NAT loopback
For OpenSim servers that have been placed inside of LAN environments using a NAT configuration, this feature enables client network connections from both the LAN side and the WAN side. Connection is possible without requiring the use of a special router that supports NAT loopback functionality. 

●VoIP ※Optional feature
