    Well that was fast! In less than 48 hours, our new Traditional Homes and Houseboats on the new Bellisseria continent have been claimed. We're really pleased and overwhelmed at the positive response to the new models and at the rapid speed with which they were acquired. Welcome to the neighborhood: we’re glad to have you here! For those of you who weren’t able to get in, don’t worry: you’re not out of luck. More Houseboats will be coming in the very near future, followed by additional Traditional homes and newer themes that we hope you’re also going to love. The LDPW and Moles are hard at work crafting the themes and the rest of the continent for your enjoyment, so get ready for new styles and new neighbors over the course of the year. Stay tuned to this post: we’ll be updating the status of home availability and other pertinent information as we go forward, so you’ll be able to jump in and get your new home. Current Inventory Status (18 April 2019 @ 7:30am SLT ) Traditional Homes: Out of Stock Houseboats: Out of Stock

    Many Residents have noted that in the last few weeks we have had an increase in disconnects during a teleport. These occur when an avatar attempts to teleport to a new Region (or cross a Region boundary, which is handled similarly internally) and the teleport or Region crossing takes longer than usual. Instead of arriving at the expected destination, the viewer disconnects with a message like: Darn. You have been logged out of Second Life. You have been disconnected from the region you were in. We do not currently believe that this is specific to any viewer, and it can affect any pair of Regions (it seems to be a timing-sensitive failure in the hand-off between one simulator and the next). There is no known workaround - please continue logging back in to get where you were going in the meantime. We are very much aware of the problem, and have a crack team trying to track it down and correct it. They’re putting in long hours and exploring all the possibilities. Quite unfortunately, this problem dodged our usual monitors of the behavior of simulators in the Release Channels, and as a result we're also enhancing those monitors to prevent similar problems getting past us in the future. We're sorry about this - we empathize with how disruptive it has been.

    We want to thank everyone for the kind words they have expressed in the last 24 hours since Linden Homes has launched its first phase of homes. We are delighted so many of you are enjoying the homes, the decor, and especially the feel of community. As part of fostering that community feel, we are going to address two changes that are occurring over the next week or so (and explain our reasoning). The first is that at 6am SLT on Wed April 17th, we are going to uncheck the box on the Linden Homes estate that allows parcel owners access restrictions to be more restrictive than the estate. Meaning: no ban lines. It's our belief that with a sense of community being a main goal of Linden Homes, ban lines send the wrong message. Parcel owners can still ban troublesome individuals by name on their parcel but they will not be able to put their land in virtual lock down by restricting access to group only. The second goes hand in hand with parcel access, and that is security devices. We want to allow Residents to fly, walk, drive, sail and explore freely across Bellisseria without compromising Residents privacy and security on their own parcels. To that end we are allowing the use of security orbs. However, since many orbs can be set in ways that preclude even the most innocent of straying across a parcel boundary or being sent home even though you are 500m in the sky we are forced to come up with a compromise. You may use your personal security orbs or devices in Linden Homes for now, but early next week: we are going to provide you with an approved device via the Linden Homes Content Packs. It will work just as aggressively in protecting your homes from unwanted intrusion, but still reasonably allow Residents to explore without fear of being ejected or teleported home without warning. Once those are added to the Linden Homes Content Packs, the use of other scripted security devices will not be allowed and this will be noted in an update to the Linden Homes covenant. So, to recap: - Ban lines will go away for Linden Homes starting 6am SLT on Wed April 17th - Linden-supplied security orbs will be distributed via the Linden Homes Content Creation Packs early next week - Personal security orbs/devices will be allowed from the above date until approved security orbs are distributed (and not after) We’re thrilled you’re enjoying Linden Homes and we’re excited for everything else to come!

    UPDATE: Currently, new Linden Homes are sold out - but more are on the way. Please stay tuned to our blog and to this forum thread for updates. New Linden Homes Have Arrived! One of the many benefits of becoming a Premium Second Life member is access to an automatic waiver of the monthly land fees for a Linden Home or 1024m² tier allotment for use towards a parcel on the Mainland. A pretty incredible perk, but it was time to make it even perkier. Let’s be honest - those Linden Homes from 2010 were long overdue for some updates and improvements. It was clear a fresh coat of paint and some new landscaping were just not going to make the amount of curb appeal we were shooting for. In fact, it was time to return to the drawing board and start a better-built Linden Home experience, from the ground up - literally. The first of several planned Linden Home updates launches today - with the introduction of New Linden Homes - exclusive to Premium members. Your new home may be in the mountains, along the shore, or in a rolling landscape of low hills and river valleys, but you’ll also be part of a large community experience, with navigable waterways, a network of roads, and community areas to socialize and have fun. There are two new themed styles in this release - Traditional and Houseboats - and some are twice as big as previous Linden Home offerings. Traditional Our new Traditional suburban homes are available in several single or two-story options and are located within a convenient distance from a communal park area where you can join your friends for picnics, sports, or family activities. Houseboats For something a bit less conventional, try one of the many new Houseboat theme options with large rooms and a high ceiling and skylights. There’s also a deck area outside for you to relax or entertain friends and family under the blue skies and over the even bluer waters! Existing Premium Member with Linden Homes Out with the old, and in with the new! If you’re already a Premium Member, you qualify to switch to a new Linden Home in one of our new styles including Traditional Homes and Houseboats. Old Linden Homes will be phased out over time, but there’s no rush. If you’re not ready to make the big move, that’s okay. Many of these new home options are twice the size of previous offerings, and even more new Linden Homes are coming later this year. Once you’ve seen the improvements and additions, you’re going to want to claim your new place to call home as soon as possible. How to Get Started Moving into a new place may seem a bit overwhelming, but we’ve got you covered. Everything you need to know about the new Linden Homes is available on the New Linden Homes wiki. There is a walk-through on how to claim your new Home if you’re new or returning to Premium Membership, or if you’re an existing Premium member and ready to make the switch. All the details on what makes these new homes better than ever, and the how-tos to get you into your new place are all there. Are you ready for your new life on the Bellisseria continent? Now may be the perfect time to upgrade to Premium! Your new home is waiting for you!

    Just in time for Valentines’ Day! Second Life is proud to announce the debut of “Love Made in SL,” a new limited-run mini-series showcasing the many real stories of romance in the virtual lives of the Second Life community. Love Made in SL logo created by Marianne McCann with permission from Linden Lab Over the next few months, we’ll unveil a series of short video profiles that tell the many stories of couples discovering love in Second Life. As you’ll see in our first episode, these virtual connections can also extend successfully into long-term relationships in the physical world. Meet Teal and Wolf, a charming couple that met 10 years ago in Second Life within the “Tiny” community of RaglanShire. After several years of a long-distance relationship, Teal recently decided to move from the US to the UK to be with Wolf and they are getting married this week! Pictured: Wolf and Teal, a soon-to-be-married couple that met in Second Life. “I think virtual worlds have that ability to allow people to just see whether their souls match up,” says Wolf. Watch the full video below, or on our Official YouTube Channel here. Catch future episodes of “Love Made in SL” on Second Life’s official Facebook page or YouTube channel. “Love Made in SL” is produced for Second Life by virtual journalist Draxtor Despres. If you’d like to be considered for a future edition, please contact Draxtor inworld.

    I haven't been lurking here, lately. Though this one was taken by someone who spotted me and was kind enough to give me permission to keep it and post it onto my Flickr, I thought I'd share. Thank you Pete Sunny (petesunny Resident).

    While doing the other bunny shot, my friend came by and we did some sort of a bunny shot together too, after she completely un-badassed my car with her texture... (ok, its kinda cute....)

    Sometimes the viewer DoF is difficult to get right, especially so when the avatar is not totally motionless. I'm quite satisfied how it came out here.

    It feels like we just packed away all that crystal magic from our 15th anniversary celebration, but our sweet sixteen is just around the corner! This summer, we’re throwing a huge celebration to commemorate 16 years with this incredible community and we wanted to fill you in on just a few of the details. Sixteen years ago, on June 23rd, 2003, Second Life launched to the public. Though it feels like just yesterday and a lifetime ago at the same time, this year we couldn’t pass up the opportunity to go retro and embrace the “Sweet Sixteen” theme for our big party. Sock hops, bowling alleys, and late nights at the diner were a quintessential part of many teenagers lives back in the 1950s, but the 1950s were also a time of political and social change. The world was shocked by the iconic ‘Elvis pelvis,’ and poodle and pencil skirts changed the fashion world forever. Rebellion became the titillating pastime among all that soda shoppe sweetness. It was an era that - like Second Life - rocked and rolled! So, this summer we’re throwing a 1950s themed SL16B with a TON of fun events and happenings. Here is a brief rundown of just a few. Save the Date The dates of this year’s celebration will be June 20th, 2019 through - July 8th, 2019. SL16B Applications for volunteers, performers and exhibitors will be opening soon - so stay tuned to our blog for more updates as these applications become available. SL16B Shopping Event We’re bringing back our multi-region inworld shopping event, complete with gifts and great deals from many Merchants from all over the Grid. If you are a Merchant and you’re interested in submitting an application to participate, please visit and complete this form. The cut-off for submissions will be June 1st, 2019, so be sure to apply sooner rather than later. The shopping event will take place for the duration of the celebrations - June 20th, 2019 through - July 8th, 2019 SL16B Music Fest The 1950s were an exciting time for music - and we have such an incredible live music community in Second Life, we’re going to carry on the tradition of Music Fest and will be announcing application for the audition showcase and more very soon. SL16B Gifts and Parties There really ain’t no party like a Second Life party - and there will be some parties within the party that you won’t want to miss. Come As You Were Party (dust off those oldbies and round up those Ruths) and a modern twist on the dance party are just a few of the opportunities you’ll have to come out and shake your virtual tail feathers. There will be costume prizes - so start planning those looks. Dates will be announced as we get closer to the celebration. Last year we introduced the Swaginator at SL15B - and we’re bringing it back again this year with some updates and changes based on feedback. You’ll hear more about this as we get closer - but Swaginator gifts will be easier to get than ever! See You There We’re very excited to hit another incredible milestone this year and can’t wait to shake, rattle, and roll with all our Residents this summer. It’s going to be the ginchiest!

    Dance... Sometimes, when the music is really good, I'll set Skell off on a cascade of dances and just watch him with a smile on my face. Sometimes I even join in IRL. Tonight is one of those sometimes. Credits here.

    Hi, all! I made more edits on my shape since the last time I show you my WIP and now I finally switched to the Genus head. I know I'll probably change some details on it because I always take forever to completely finish a shape, but I can say that I'm happy with my look for now. *The picture was taken at Whimberly.

    Both Genus heads got their update today.. Mine is the Genus Babyface 1.5..I love this head..I love the classic also,but have had a hard time trying to get this one off..hehehehe Aaanyways, If anyone with the Genus head didn't get their update yet..You can run over to the store and can get it from the re-delivery if you don't feel like waiting for them to send it to you.. If you did the beta you will get both heads in the same folder.. The babyface box will be in the Classic head folder right by the classic head and still will need to be unpacked.. Everyone have a great day ,or night or morning hehehehe Ceka ❤️
