Last month, we blogged about some of the projects we’re working on to improve Second Life, and today, we’re happy to share that one of those changes has become a part of the default Second Life Viewer: hover height adjustments.

As a reminder, here’s what this change means (quoted from our previous post):

 

One of the surprisingly difficult things to do in a virtual world is to make things come to rest in a natural-looking way. Keeping feet on the ground when standing and the right body parts on furniture seems obvious, but getting an avatar to "just touch" without either floating above or penetrating into the adjacent surface can be computationally quite expensive. To avoid some of that expense, Second Life has always used approximations, which rely on some simplifying assumptions about the avatar shape and size. Those assumptions are adjusted by a number of factors including several of your shape parameter choices, values included in attachments you are wearing, and active animations.

original.png

original (1).png

As we've all seen, sometimes these things combine to leave you floating above or sinking into the surface on which intuitively you should be resting. This is because the adjustments come from many sources and sometime interact in unexpected ways. Because they have not always been applied in exactly the same order, even if you wear the same set of attachments in the same setting you could sometimes get different results.

This Viewer, and some accompanying server changes, improve things in two ways: the order in which we make adjustments to your vertical position has been made more stable -- combining the same set of attachments and animations should now always produce the same vertical offset: even if it's not perfect, it will at least be predictable. Because it can't always be perfect, we've also introduced a new final adjustment that is directly under your control: a new avatar right-click selection allows you to tweak your vertical position. This final adjustment is shared with everyone around you so that they too will see you correctly, and is saved locally by your viewer so that it persists between sessions. This new feature was inspired by a proposal from the Firestorm viewer team, and they've been helping with testing it.

This new feature is now available to everyone as part of the default Second Life Viewer. Update to the latest version and start enjoying this improvement today!

Being a Premium Second Life subscriber carries many benefits - from weekly L$ stipends, to your own Linden Home, expanded live customer support options, exclusive gifts, and more. Today, we’re happy to announce a new perk for Premium subscribers: access to more missed instant messages!

Previously, if IMs were sent to your account while you were offline, you could access up to 25 messages when you next log in. That remains the case for free account holders, but starting today, Premium Members can access up to 50 missed IMs. That means fewer notecards filling up your inventory and fewer missed messages from friends, colleagues, and customers.

There are many reasons to upgrade to Premium, and we’ll be adding even more benefits and features for subscribers throughout the year. Learn more about Premium benefits and upgrade your account here: https://secondlife.com/premium/

You can pick the subscription plan that best fits your budget - pay monthly, quarterly, or annually. Pro tip: do the math on the annual plan - in addition to a total savings of more than $47 compared to a monthly subscription, the value of the weekly L$ stipend alone means it nearly pays for itself!

This episode of the Drax Files almost didn’t happen. When initially asked to participate, Whiskey Monday declined due to personal challenges that she’s since worked through by using Second Life as a medium for artistic expression.

"The anonymity in this virtual world gave me the bravery to be very very real. I was able to overcome a lot of issues by expressing myself creatively in Second Life!" she says.

Whiskey builds 3-dimensional sets inworld, then creates 2-dimensional images from them in her popular Second Life photography. One of the interesting things about her process is that she thrives on the impermanence of her builds and the process of deleting them once she has achieved her vision. While the image remains, the space in which the image was taken is gone.

There’s been a lot of excitement recently around our integration of the Oculus Rift with Second Life. The addition of HMD (head-mounted display) mode offers a new level of immersion for 3D experiences, but what about people who want less immersion?

Today, we’re happy to announce a new way to explore the wide variety of community-created experiences in Second Life, without the complexity of the third dimension: 2D side-scrolling (2DSS) mode. Without the third dimension, you can enjoy Second Life just like your favorite 8-bit games from the past!

sdimage.png

Note: while this new mode is compatible with HMD mode, we do not recommend trying both simultaneously. If you were to  turn your head 90 degrees while doing so, the world may simply disappear from view - causing a rather jarring experience that might make you feel a bit foolish.

The new 2DSS mode is available as of April 1, 2015, and you can now download the Project Viewer to start enjoying some retro-future fun in Second Life!

"I have been having nightmares as long as I remember,” says Kiana Writer - one of the many talented creators behind MadPea’s latest story-driven survival/horror game in Second Life,“My first one was at the age of four when I was being chased by rhinos in the dark woods. I thought everyone was dreaming like me and was surprised when I realized this wasn't the case … Second Life gave me the tools to have my nightmares become fully immersive games!”

UNIA, the newest game from MadPea has hit the grid - and it’s a big one! Over the past two years, the MadPea team has been creating and scripting a story in which you battle the odds to unravel one piece of a larger mystery. The scope and magnitude of the project grew with the introduction of Experience Tools in Second Life - an opportunity that the MadPea team saw to optimize the gameplay and interaction of the experience you will have when you join the game.

UNIA is a spooky adventure into a nightmarish world; a survival/horror game with twists and turns lurking in every shadow. Prepare to solve puzzles, fight monsters, and immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of this adventure.

While UNIA should keep you busy for hours of gameplay, MadPea is already working on the next chapter, and has given us the exclusive scoop that their next game will be called The Collection - where you can expect the same level of story-based gaming and immersion that MadPea is known for.

 “Everyone has their own interpretation of the future as something different, but this is our interpretation of it.”

Meet StarRavenSAT, General Manager of InSilico, and Stark Osterham, Manager and Lore Master, in the latest episode of the Drax Files: World Makers. StarRavenSat finds hope even in the throes of a desperate civilization, and Stark shares his creative process with his daughter who serves as a source of inspiration even as she herself learns the importance of creative expression from her father. Populated with a full cast of characters improvised by Stark, InSilico’s history is created in realtime by all participants - from builders, storytellers, scripters, and players. This type of spontaneous collaboration focuses different flavors of creative energy into creative play - leading to an immersive and exciting experience.

TDF 29 Stark and daughter.png

InSilico is a cyberpunk roleplaying region set in a dystopian future where a big bad corporation seemingly calls the shots, and ongoing wars between rival groups of locals require citizens to be experts at self-defense. Rife with both wonder and danger, it’s everything you might expect from a 25th century city floating in the upper atmosphere after the fall of civilization on Earth.

Watch the video below, then login to experience InSilico inworld. Even if you’re not an avid roleplayer, you won’t want to miss out on the unique aesthetic and appeal of InSilico.
