"Simply brilliant and simple!"
Version: PalaceChat 4.1.182
The biggest advantage of this platform that it allows for absolute freedom, the only limit is your skill set and your imagination! The simple and flowing philosophy and UI quickly make you feel comfortable while using the software! The scripting feature is absolutely stunning and relatively easy to learn if you have some experience with programming or scripting. Creating avatars is as simple as drag-and-dropping an image into the interface! The avatars consist of nine layers, so which allows for a large variety of avatars, specially since the layers can be "exported" as one layer and then reused with other layers! The content can be so vivid and interactive.
The only disadvantage I could really fixate upon is that for you to have your own chat server, you need to buy it from a palace hosting service (there are a few, I think). To create interactive and animated content it is mandatory you know the scripting language (and for beginners it can be quite a big bite to chew on), but anyone with some past programming experience shouldn't have a problem learning it, and there are a few good, extensive tutorials on it.
The software is great, because it allows for users to create their own universe. it is easy to create rich content for it and the avatars system is really fun to play with (it also has an in-app image editor for avatars and props [what avatars are essentially made of] which is easy enough to use). All in all, it is a great piece of software and it has enormous potential! However, to create your own universe you need to pay a small fee (the price varies depending on what you need), but the software itself is free! There are however Palace server out there, the most notable I found was "Aperitio" which centres around Harry Potter role-play, and they have an excellent combination of scripting, graphics and avatars!
