  2. Come take a stroll on a rainy cyberpunk night at The Apartments, a cryptic region that invites you to explore its dark urban corners. See if you can count all the mischievous cats lurking around! Creator Paradox Ivory describes The Apartments as “a love letter to some of my favourite movies that just so happen to fall into the sci-fi & cyberpunk genres. I have always wanted to immerse myself in those places and get lost in the environment. So from Blade Runner to the Doctor and Han Solo, if you look for their names on the mailboxes, you can wander to their apartments and see dec

  4. Hi Residents! I’ve come to ask for a favor. We’re in a really exciting time in the history of Second Life. We’re in the home stretch on moving the grid to the cloud. We hit a fun milestone a few days ago, and now there’s over 1,000 regions running in the cloud! Everyone in the Lab is working hard on this project, and we’re moving very quickly. I just got out of a leadership meeting where we went over what’s currently in flight, and there’s so many things moving that I lost track of them all. It’s amazing! The favor I’ve come to ask you for is your patience. We’re doing

It includes a variety of New York themed attractions (Central Park, the Rockefeller Center skating rink, the Statue of Liberty etc), spread around a series of streets designed to look like Manhattan. Around the sim you then have hotel rooms of varying size and cost." Read more on the blog.

  9. "It’s *almost* the most wonderful time of the year! One of the best traditions we have here on the blog, and in SL, is the unveiling of Advent Calendars across the grid during the month of December. We aim to bring you the most complete coverage of these awesome events every year, and this year is no exception. Work has already begun on the massive list, with many designers confirming that they will indeed have a calendar in their shop." Read more on the blog.

  13. "The first issue of the magazine 360 GRADI was published on September 30. It is a project that I have wanted to realize for years but, partly for lack of collaborators, partly for lack of time, I have never been able to complete. The wait was however useful, as it allowed me to “study” the characteristics that my magazine should have had. In fifteen days the second issue of this bimonthly magazine rich in content will be published. Let’s see together 360 GRADI and the preview of the issue that will be out soon." Read more on the blog.

The mean average for the new Stilt Linden Homes is fractionally over 25 to a region. There will be thousands of Stilt homes available to claim very soon.

Not only is it lovely landscape, it offers free houses and skyboxes. Partly because I try to pay attention and partly because I seem to be very lucky in the apartment, house and land areas -- I garnered this oh so cute cabin in a fit of speediness.

Now, because of the new lockdown measures in England, I was unable to travel to the funeral. I was actually quite upset that I couldn’t go, but I knew I wasn’t the only one. The service was live streamed over the interweb, and the link was sent to me a few days beforehand." Read more on the blog.

I feel this pressure from work all the time because you put so much into it and then you get little back, other than you could have done this or you forgot about that. It is never easy when you have done in your mind everything right but you get nothing back. Should we work with the thought of getting something back? Or should we just do it because we simply want to do it and it brings us joy?" Read more on the blog.

It lost is original land abruptly, but not too long after that, ended up with more land than before. Not long after that, I rented a house there. I love Halloween, so I wanted to decorate. It ended up better than I hoped for, so now that Halloween 2020 has ended, I wanted to take some pictures to remember it by." Read more on the blog.

Ro!Act Designs calls these Arabian Blue tiles though. I guess we have a different frame of (cultural) reference." Read more on the blog.

And then there are the restricted sims, which RPs the whole check-in experience right down to sometimes giving you a half hour voice tour." Read more on the blog.
