I don’t know about you, but I am a 365 days of Halloween kind of person. I go home decor shopping when others go party decoration shopping, and if I deck a hall, it will most certainly be with boughs of spiderwebs and clouds of dry ice. I know that lots of us feel the same and wish stores would pack up those Winter Holiday decorations for a few more weeks and roll out more spook-tacular Halloween treats.

Now is the perfect time for us to pull out the stops and do it up in a BIG WAY. We’re looking for some of your great inworld, Halloween-themed images!

Share your pics, and your work could be featured in an upcoming email or banner campaign - with your avatar name credited of course!

Share your pic on our Official Flickr Page with the tag “SLHalloween2016” so that we can see all of your amazing work. You may submit as many as you like between now and October 5, 2016. Please include your avatar name in the image description so that we know who to credit!

We’ll showcase the chosen image(s) in an email to Residents, as well as in some banner campaigns. We’ll let the chosen image creators know via Flickr.

Tips for your submissions:

  • Make sure that your submissions are appropriate for all audiences.
  • Layout:

    • The main content of your image should be near the center and to the right of the image - similar to the images you’d see on the Second Life login page.
    • Horizontal images work best.
  • Show your avatar or avatars in a scene inworld - an image that tells a story is going to make an impression.
  • Keep your image free of additional text/logos.
  • Higher resolution images work best.
  • Check below for examples of images that we’ve used in the past.

If you need a little inspiration - catch the Halloween spirit by ghost-hunting some of the frightful haunts already submitted to the Destination Guide.

Friday is one of the most popular days of the week. You have the entire weekend ahead of you a wide open canvas for plans, friends, hobbies and fun. In Second Life, that means grabbing your SL squad and enjoying some of your favorite spots. How about a little adventure with some new spots that you can discover together?

Our Destination Guide keeps a pretty incredible catalog of events, exhibits and more — a variety of different tastes, styles and environments to suit any mood. Each week we try to gather a few of these places to share with you here in the blog. All you have to do is click the links below and login to see what we’ve uncovered this week.

You can also submit your spot for Destination Guide consideration, if it’s not there and you’d like it to be.

What are you waiting for? We’ve got plenty to see inworld!

Out now is a feature that is sure to make browsing your outfits a breeze… Introducing, the Visual Outfit Browser out now as part of the default viewer!

In Second Life, personalizing your avatar and expressing yourself through outfits and accessories is an art in and of itself. Bloggers, fashionistas, role-players, and pretty much everyone else knows that finding the perfect thing to wear can be a timely challenge when searching for items in your inventory by name. Creating outfits is a great way to keep some of your best looks organized and within easy reach, but what if you have lots of similarly named outfits, or can't quite remember which look you put together? With the new Visual Outfit Browser (VOB) feature, you can take snapshots, upload images, or even use an existing image from your inventory to assign a thumbnail to your outfit folders. Images should be no larger than 256 x 256 - so keep that in mind when taking your pics.  It's a great way to browse your virtual closet and get inspired for your next wardrobe change.

For more details, check out our Knowledge Base article on this feature. Get the latest browser now, have fun, and we hope you enjoy this cool new feature!

We very happy to announce a major milestone for an exciting update to Second Life avatars…

 

You might remember the first introduction back in December 2015: we opened up Resident participation for Project Bento. Bento greatly extends the avatar skeleton, allowing the creation of many new kinds of exciting content. Today we are happy to announce the next phase in the development. The Bento Viewer is now a Release Candidate Viewer! This is the last stage before becoming the official release Viewer.

bento1.png

If you are interested in avatar content creation, please give the new Viewer a try, and if you encounter problems, please let us know right away by filing a JIRA bug report. We believe the skeleton and sliders are in their final state, but the Release Candidate Viewer is intended to give us the opportunity to test with a much larger number of users to be sure we're ready to deploy throughout Second Life. It’s very important to hear about any remaining problems as soon as possible. You can also review the release notes for this Release Candidate.

bento2.png

Thanks to everyone who has made Bento possible through your ongoing enthusiasm and feedback! With your help, Bento will soon be ready for integration to the main Second Life viewer, allowing all Residents to enjoy even more innovative avatars.

This time of year is an interesting blend of those who hold on to the last shimmering days of summer, and those who rush towards the rioting leaves of Fall — a magical between time that celebrates two seasons simultaneously. The sights and sounds of a summer Renaissance Fair mingle with the scents of pumpkin spice and cinnamon nutmeg.
Second Life is full of the best of both worlds — with a healthy variety of things to keep you celebrating September in all its seasonal mashup glory. Our Destination Guide editorial team has crafted a list of spots you are not going to want to miss.
You’re going to want to have your cameras handy to capture the best parts of your adventures. The official Second Life Flickr page is where we select images to feature on our social media channels as part of the Pic of the Day program. Maybe your pic will be selected!
You can also submit your spot for Destination Guide consideration, if it’s not there and you’d like it to be.

This episode of the Drax Files focuses on 88-year-old Bernhard Dörries. A successful German film director whose prolific career spans more than 50 years and 129 films, Bernhard continues to explore storytelling and creativity through Second Life.
In Second Life, Bernhard’s avatar is Bernhard McIntyre - a youthful representation of his creative intellect, as well as a vehicle to cope with the emotional and physical challenges of moving into an assisted living situation.
“My avatar is co-creator, equal partner in sharing feelings, co-owner of feelings and emotions,” he says.

To find out more about this fascinating man - including his Second Life machinima and how he envisions a Film Festival in his honor - tune into this episode of the Drax Files , or watch the video below.

Linden Lab
Today we’re happy to announce that the new Marketplace search is live!  In addition to helping you find what you are looking for faster, we’re excited to swap out the ageing infrastructure that was supporting the old search.  Part of the new search is a learning algorithm that will further improve search results with time - the more it’s used, the better it performs.  Also, keep in mind that you can use boolean operators in search (AND, OR, NOT) for more specific searches.  We look forward to a more relevant and robust experience for shoppers and merchants alike.

We thank the merchants and everyone who pitched in and tried out search during the Beta phase for your input. As always, if you’ve found a bug, please let us know in Jira under the BUG project.

Linden Lab
Over the last several months, a lot of projects and improvements have been in the works, and we want to take a few minutes to talk about some of the highlights. Some of these have been released into the wild, and some are at exciting stages of development, so read on to get caught up!
Project Bento - extended Avatar Skeleton

Bento is making great progress! Week by week, the collaborative efforts between the Lab and Bento content creators and Resident testers continue to improve this project. We couldn’t be more excited about working with creators in making Second Life avatars better than ever! Stay tuned for updates or join us at our weekly user group meetings! We're getting very close to promoting the Bento-capable viewer to Release Candidate status, the next step in making it a part of everyone’s Second Life experience.
 

 
Visual Outfit Browser
We realize Second Life Residents have dozens and dozens of outfits and looking at a list can be boring and uninspiring, not to mention difficult to remember what is what (imagine that you couldn't look at the clothes in your own closet at home, but instead could only see a list of their names!). With the new Visual Outfit Browser, you’ll be able to see your outfits via an all new gallery-style display, making selecting outfits a snap. You provide the images that are displayed for each outfit or try out VOB’s new snapshot utility. Playing dress-up has never been so easy and fun! You can download this viewer now by visiting VOB’s Viewer download page.

 
Quicktime Replacement
Apple recently withdrew support for the Quicktime player for Windows, which has in any event been a steady source of security vulnerabilities over the years. This project replaces that plugin for the Windows Viewer with newer and more robust media support (the Mac Viewer will also get this new tech soon). It will play some media that Quicktime would not, but will not play some older Quicktime-only media. Content creators that incorporate media should be testing with this Viewer to see if the media they use is supported. In general, we recommend upgrading any shared media to mp3, mp4, or any HTML5 compatible format for best performance and stability.
Learning and Social Island
The latest Learning and Social Islands launched in March - the first to utilize Experience Tools as part of the new user experience. Early results have shown the new Learning/Social Island setup outperforming all previous (both Linden and Community) introductory setups in some key retention metrics.  We’re continuously making optimizations to that experience based on the data.
Gaming Island
We launched Gaming Island - a new Linden Lab region dedicated to educating Residents about skill games in Second Life.  On this region, anyone can learn how to play all available games of skill in a free-to-play setting. If you want to then go play the games for Linden dollars, the Portal Park makes it easy to find them.

 
Server Robustness
Over the last several months we've been working to make Second Life servers more robust with new limits and checks to manage bandwidth usage and CPU resources between Residents. This is to make sure that a shared experience will not turn into a shared crasher, and in addition to improving stability for everyone, these changes make things more difficult for would-be griefers.  
Group Chat & Bans
We found a way to finally fix a long-standing issue with group chat and bans. Group moderators have the ability to remove troublemakers from a group; with the new change, this causes them to be immediately removed from the group chat and prevents them from returning or causing further disruption in the group.
Quick Graphics & JellyDolls
In order to give Residents more control of their graphics/performance balance and improve their performance, we released the JellyDoll Viewer which allows Residents to set limits on the amount of avatar complexity they render in their viewer. The Quick Graphics feature lets you save optimal presets for all different occasions.

 
TLS Update
We implemented TLS 1.2 for state of the art security to protect SL users’ financial transactions.
Verified Emails
As part of our continued efforts to improve security and reliability of our services, we've set a goal of only sending emails from Second Life to verified email addresses. One step on the road to achieving this goal has just shipped - we now request all new accounts to verify the provided email address. Keep an eye out for the next steps!
CoreHTTP
For improved performance and stability, we replaced the old HTTP infrastructure of the viewer - no small feat, but one that we know was much needed. This has resulted in fewer problems with high volume operations like loading inventory, and has significantly reduced certain kinds of load on the simulator hosts (leaving more time for actually simulating). It's also made the viewer code easier to maintain and extend.
Marketplace Search
In November we introduced BetaSearch for the Marketplace with a new search engine and infrastructure.  Though it performed much better in some regards, Merchants also let us know about some issues, so we’ve proceeded carefully.  We’ve utilized Merchant feedback to refine and optimize the experience, and now we’re close to promoting the new Search.  Additionally, we’re looking forward to getting off the ageing infrastructure that’s been causing nightly service lockups.  We’re excited about providing better search results and a more reliable service.
Bug Fixes
We’ve been putting in a lot of effort to be more responsive to bug reports and improve turnaround time on fixes.  We triage bug reports daily and you can often see a fix in a public code repository within days of filing a bug.  We carefully consider feature requests and are always thrilled to accept and follow through when we can.  In addition to the focused projects above, just on the Viewer side we’ve had 3 Maintenance Viewer releases this year, with a 4th one in RC, fixing more than 200 bugs in total. And of course, we do try to introduce fewer than we fix!
We know that much of the work we’ve been doing is ‘under the hood’. It’s an important priority to us to continue making improvements on performance and stability, while balancing feature development and Resident feedback. If you haven’t already, take the latest Viewer for a spin or experiment with one of the Alternate Viewers for a closer look at what’s been developing - and stay tuned to our blogs to keep up to date!

There’s never a shortage of exciting new spots for us to add to the weekly highlights — sometimes it’s hard to keep it under the handful we include here — but if your spot isn’t in there yet, why don’t you submit it to the Destination Guide?
Each week, the Destination Guide receives tons of submissions for clubs, celebrations, festivals, art exhibits, and beautifully built spaces created to delight and admire.  That’s just scratching the surface of what is available for us to explore.
Take lots of pics and share them on our Official Second Life Flickr page —  where we select images to feature on our social media channels as part of the Pic of the Day program.

See you inworld soon!

“When you play a console game, you have to follow the directions of the developer. In Second Life, you are the developer.”
Meet Sergio Delacruz - creator of the inworld multiplayer game “Susan’s Diary” and owner of Delacruz Technologies.
As a creative free spirit, Sergio discovered that Second Life was a wide-open canvas for exploring and learning the fundamentals of building, scripting, and design. After making his very first pair of shoes inworld, Sergio’s passion for creation led him to craft a first-person shooter game in Second Life.
Sergio’s enthusiasm is evident in  this episode of the Drax Files. Watch the video below or follow to view it on YouTube.

We first blogged about this in early May, but that post is repeated below for you convenience and will walk you through the easy steps to make sure that you're up to date!
Original Blog Post
As part of our ongoing work to keep Second Life transactions secure and in compliance with applicable regulations, we are updating the browser requirements for Second Life’s web cashier (the tool you see when you login on the web and go to make a payment).
Effective June 15, 2016, you will need to use a web browser that supports TLS 1.2 in order to access the Second Life web cashier; if your browser does not support TLS 1.2, you will not be able to access cashier to send, receive, or exchange L$ after that date.
Please check that your browser’s security support is up to date. You can do this simply by visiting https://www.howsmyssl.com/ and checking that it detects TLS 1.2 in the Version section:

Updated security support is also required for accessing the cashier via the Second Life Viewer. The latest version of the official SL Viewer is safe. You can download it here: http://secondlife.com/support/downloads/.
If you’re not using the latest version of the official SL Viewer, check the browser built into the viewer you use with the same test above. Actively maintained Third Party Viewers should have versions available that have the required support. Older or unmaintained viewers may not, and you will not be able to use them for L$ transactions after the deadline if you do not update.

We're proud to introduce the all-new "Fantasy" starter avatars, covering a diverse range of "genre" styles including steampunk, vampires, sci-fi, post-apocalyptic… and beyond!
There are 10 fresh starter avatars available right now, and you can use them as a basis for further customization — explore the Second Life Marketplace and personalize to your liking. These new avatars have normal "system" bodies with mesh wearables, which makes it easy to change their hair, clothes, accessories, and more!

A bit more history about our long-term starter avatar collections:
Back in May 2014, we introduced a round of mesh-body starter avatars to replace even older starter avatars (that you can still find in your inventory's Library > Clothing > Initial Outfits folder).
Then in November 2015, we superceded all of those with a new batch of “Classic” avatars using "system" bodies that are easier to customize, partially in response to Resident requests pointing out the inflexibility of the all-mesh bodies.
Over the years, we've continued to apply what we've learned about building techniques to our starter avatars, improving their aesthetics and optimizing them to load quickly. Our latest Fantasy starter avatars are vibrant examples of what we consider "balanced content" that is both performance-optimized and looks beautiful — they can save you time getting immersed in one of our many roleplaying communities without unnecessarily lagging yourself or others. We know that content creators want to create optimized content for their customers, and we encourage creators to study these new avatars as examples of balanced content.

In our ongoing quest to help creators be aware of balanced content, we introduced the Avatar Rendering Complexity (ARC) project. And more recently, we rolled out "JellyDolls" — a visual feature to raise awareness of ARC and help you control the resources your Viewer spends rendering others' avatars. We practice what we preach, so our Fantasy avatars have been fine-tuned for low, efficient ARC scores. These are just a couple of the initiatives that help make your Second Life a more enjoyable experience.
Ready for your next adventure?
In the Second Life Viewer, go to Me menu > Choose an Avatar to see the Fantasy avatars. New users will also be able to select one of these avatars during the signup process. Try them today!
There was an internal video made to introduce these avatars to the company, and we loved it so much, we'd like to share it with you!

Summer can be a season of colors — a beautiful painting of nature in her brightest glory. I wander out to my yard and see bold bursts of red tomatoes, sunny yellow lemons, tiger-striped green cucumbers, all against a blue sky full of fluffy clouds, and I can’t help but smile! The vibrancy and diversity reminds me of the Second Life community, and like that garden, our Destination Guide is full of amazingly colorful stuff!
Where else in any world can you jump from a Japanese summer festival to a Japanese Horror event with just a click? Or shop  summer fashions then drop into a little cafe for some live music? Not too many places, I bet — which is one of the many reasons I friggin’ love Second Life.

For a limited time, we’re offering 50 percent off Premium Membership*! There’s no better time to see what’s available to Premium members of Second Life and consider upgrading to Premium.
As a Premium member, you’ll enjoy rewards like access to special Premium Sandboxes, Live Chat support, your own inworld home, a L$1000 sign-up bonus, and weekly L$ rewards to spend on whatever you like. Get all the details of going here, and sign up to start enjoying the benefits now!
“For any immersive Resident, Premium membership is a must.”
Many of the benefits and perks of being a Premium member are especially useful for those looking to start or expand a Second Life business. Second Life Resident Blueberryxx, owner and creator of the incredibly popular fashion store Blueberry - gave us some insight into how Premium membership helps her continue to manage and run her virtual business.

LL: What do you do in Second Life?
BB: I own a fashion brand called Blueberry where I focus on creating mesh casual/chic women's apparel. It's my real life job and my most beloved hobby at the same time. It is an incredible experience to create content with the heavy influence, guidance and feedback directly from the customers.
 
LL: Why do you like Second Life?
BB: I am very passionate about Second Life, because it is the only platform in the entire world where a community constantly inspires each other to greatness. There is no going back once you have opened the doors to the kind of diversity, compassion and purpose Second Life has to offer.
 
LL: Why did you become a Premium Member?
BB:  I became a premium member the moment I knew I was going to be working full time as a content creator in Second Life. It is so crucial to me to have instant live-chat feature, not only for quick handle on account security issues if they have ever happened, but for regular billing hurdles that might come up as well.
 
LL: What do you like that the membership offers you?
BB: Honestly for any immersive resident, premium membership is a must. Group communication is essential part of the community and premium membership allows for a much, much bigger group space. Between events, land groups, friends groups, support/help groups, and store groups, this feature makes our lives so much easier. For a beginner content creator the weekly linden bonuses and premium sandboxes are going to be essential and a lot less costly in the grand scheme of things. The perks of having your land space and mainland building rights are the cherry on top.
 
LL: What advice would you give others starting out in SL?
BB: Take advantage of the freedom of expression Second Life has to offer and never be afraid to approach people. Second Life gets truly magical when you let yourself be involved and it's an amazing experience there after.
 
 
*TERMS & CONDITIONS This offer begins on July 21, 2016 at 8AM Pacific Daylight Time (PDT) and expires on August 1, 2016 at 8AM PDT. To qualify for this promotion, you must 1) have an existing Second Life (“SL”) basic account or create a new account, and 2) select quarterly (every three months) billing for your SL account. The fifty percent (50%) discount will be applied to your first quarter’s bill and future quarters will be billed at the standard Premium Membership price (currently US$22.50 per quarter). Any Linden Dollar (L$) sign-up bonus will be applied to new accounts or accounts not previously upgraded to Premium Membership after the account has been active for forty-five (45) consecutive days.

I am freaking out — because it’s that wonderful time of year that is Hair Fair! You can indulge your inner hair hoarder guilt free — because proceeds go to Wigs for Kids. This weekend also marks Relay Weekend — fun-filled, overnight event that unites Second Life Residents throughout the world to celebrate survivors (anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer), remember loved ones and raise money for the fight against cancer. They are close to having raised a total of $3,000,000 over the years — so help them reach that goal this year and contribute what you can!
In addition to these wonderful events, there is some good old fashioned exploring and festivities to enjoy. Drop in to the London Music Festival, wander the dark and mysterious Skull Island, do a little fantasy shopping, or get in some incredible sight seeing. Wherever you end up, please take lots of pics and share them on our Official Second Life Flickr page, because sharing is caring!
Don’t forget that this blog is a shortened digest of all the wonderful and amazing things going on — you can always hit up the full Destination Guide for more, and if you’d like to share a cool spot that isn’t in the Guide, submit it!
See you inworld soon!

New Palermo
New Palermo is a historical roleplay region set in 1933. The Volstead Act... "prohibiting the sale of hard liqour," remains in force. The likelihood of it soon being repealed has only made matters worse as cops and gangsters posture to either make a last big score or get hated criminals behind bars. Corruption is rife.

It feels like just the other day that we all commemorated a dozen years of Second Life, but here we are - ready to celebrate number 13 in style!

Rock Out at the SL13B Official Music Fest

Last summer’s Music Fest was amazing! Once again, we invite you to join us as some of Second Life’s best musicians hit the virtual stage! We held auditions earlier this month, and had a hard time narrowing it down to the performers we have - Second Life is full of amazing musicians, and you may just discover your next favorite music act inworld at any of the live music venues. Thank you to everyone who came to audition, and to those who came to support them!
This year, we’ve extended the festival to span across three days, featuring an amazing line-up across many genres of music. Each day’s event will start at different times so that everyone can enjoy some live music - no matter what timezone you’re in.
Grab some refreshments, prepare to boogie your pixels off, check out the schedule below, and join us at Stage Left for a rockin' good time!

Since late 2015 we have been testing a
on the Aditi test grid, working with content creators. Today we’re announcing the second wave of Bento skeleton improvements!
This release will be available on Agni, making it available to a much wider audience. However, this is still a limited release, until we’re confident enough that this could be a release candidate and ultimately be part of the release Viewer. Creators, recipients, and anyone wishing to view the new content must be running the latest Bento Project Viewer.
If you encounter Bento avatars and are not using the Bento Project Viewer, you may see some strangely behaving avatar animations and meshes. If you're using a very old (i.e. no longer supported) viewer, encountering Bento content may even cause a crash; updating to the latest Bento Project Viewer will prevent this problem.
We’ve worked very hard these past few months and could not have done it without the help of our community.
and check out the Knowledge Based article to get more information. Thank you and enjoy!
