The short answer is: simply the coolest way to chat. The Palace gives you two things no other chat can offer:
Unlimited possibilites, use any picture and turn it into your Avatar, use or build funky scripts and sounds. Go crazy and use the FREE tools to build your own virtual world! This is the world of The Palace where virtually everything IS possible. And Palace Planet is here to help you do all that and more.
So what exactly is The Palace?
The Palace is a two sets of software: The Palace Client, a program you install on your computer used to enter Palace Servers. Palace Servers are simple to use server programs that run from home computers or professional servers. With these anyone can build their own world and make it s crazy as they like. Set your own rules and do your own things.
Chat the way you like it! You can just chat like any regulaar chat and will have a nice log window to re-read anything you say. But Palace also comes with some very cute chat bubbles and no they don't just come in yellow, you can make them any color you like.
The simple tools provided in the Palace User Client bring a totally new dimension to
chat. Lets take a closer look to whats possible:
Avatars, popularly known as Props are one of the main
attractions for newcomers. Dress in your favorite moviestar, doll or use any picture you
can find to visualise yourself. Many Palace owners have build "proprooms" to
store they're favorite creations. With thousands and thousands of props available newcomer
can go "propshopping" for days to find just that perfect "prop".
But it does not stop there: What are pictures without Sound: wav, midi
and offcourse mp3's and a complete scripting language to manipulate speech, and any palace
action. Add to this painting and the party is complete.Props, painting, scripting and
sound combined with the users imagination makes the Palace the most fun you can have on
One of the best things about the Palace is that it is an open system, if you download
the Palace Server, you can even build and customize your own personal
Palace site to host other people. A Private Palace user version is available for free on
the Palace website (downloads.palaceplanet.net).
You can run this from your home computer and invite your friends. (check manuals.palaceplanet.net for details on how to
setup a server). The Palace User client not only functions as a front-end to browse the
Palace community, but also does double-duty as a full-fledged authoring tool. By going
into "wizard-mode" you will have powefull Palace tools and the Iptscrae
scripting language available. With this you can create your own virtual world and share it
The system also ensures that all Palace sites can be interlinked. Not just by the Palace
Directory, but also by linking to any Palace of your choice. Or even link to your servers
website, very handy if you want people to download pictures and sounds before entering. Naturally you can link from any website to your Palace server IF you have a
permanent adress, this can be done by either having your Palace hosted, with a permanent
IP through DSL or one of the dynamic IP redirect services available on the net.
