Check out the Place Pages Beta!

by Community Manager on ‎01-11-2017 02:59 PM

Place Pages are a new feature aimed at making the huge variety of awesome places in Second Life easier to find by creating web pages for each inworld location that opts to show in search.

Today, we’re starting a beta for this feature. All regions and parcels that have elected to Show In Search now have an automatically generated Place Page that’s visible on the web, you can check them out and share them today! Places rated General will be visible to anyone, and those rated Mature or Adult will be subject to the usual Maturity controls.

We’re beta testing additional capabilities that will make Place Pages even better. Invited testers will have access to an admin panel that allows them to add a custom welcome message, place description, tag line, image, and video support to their place pages. That’s not all -  we’re working on other features like an events calendar, advertising parcels that are for sale/for rent, and more. Of course, all of the region/parcel stats like size, maturity rating, etc. will be available front and center too. After the testing period, we plan to roll these features out to everyone - so stay tuned!

For now, our beta is focused around customizing these pages, and planned future improvements include making sure these pages are optimized for search engines to be sure your inworld places can be easily found by people searching for relevant terms. Keep up with the most recent developments by checking out our public forum post on it. Thanks and enjoy!

Happy New Year to all of our Residents across the globe and grid! It’s hard to believe that we already have a week of 2017 under our belts, but the holiday celebrations didn’t slow down all the fun and incredible spaces from hitting the Destination Guide.

It seems that Santa may have had a little too much fun over the holidays you can help find him in the interactive Search for Santa from MadPea Productions. For those of you who are done with the holidays, it’s already Spring in London City. Head over to shake the snow off your coat and smell the flowers!

Putting a Big Ol’ Bow on 2016 in Second Life!

by Community Manager ‎12-22-2016 11:49 AM - edited ‎12-23-2016 10:24 PM

The Second Life Team has been busy shipping lots of updates ( big, small, and medium) to the Residents of Second Life. These last few months alone, we’ve burned the midnight oil to get a ton of things showtime ready - and we thought the end of the year was a good time to recap just some of the highlights from Q4.

Raising the “Prim” Limits for Mainland and Private Regions

Raising the Land Impact allowance for Mainland and Private Regions allows you to do more with your virtual space! If you’re creating, building, or re-decorating, more Land Impact means more fun! We are excited to see the ways these new Land Impact increases are sparking creativity and ingenuity with Residents all over the Grid. The new option to upgrade to 30,000  Land Impact Limit has been extremely popular as well. We're happy to see so much interest - just in time for some seasonal decorating!

REGIONS.png

Maintenance Maintenance Maintenance

The SL team has been, as always, plugging away on keeping the plates spinning.  Each Maintenance Viewer, Web, and Server release contains multiple fixes that include performance improvements, bugfixes, crash fixes, and tons of small feature work. Unglamorous on its own, this work is what  keeps Second Life humming along and this work is our most responsive branch - we often take small feature requests and get them out to Residents in a matter of weeks.

Horizons

Horizons - Residents are having a great time playing through the Horizons experience and carving out their own piece of the Horizons community as well! It’s sci-fi retro fun, and something we were delighted to launch publicly. If you want to scan current listings you can do so by visiting the auctions page. More parcels will be auctioned out soon!Horizons_Billboard_final2.png

360 Snapshots

360 snapshots is in Project Viewer stage. Dramatic new fully panoramic views of Second Life for social media, blogging, and whatever you can imagine are now possible!  We are looking forward to getting that out in the main Viewer soon.

Bento - Extending the Avatar Skeleton

Well, by now you’ve heard the news.  It’s done!  By far the most significant change to the Second Life avatar in a long time, this is already empowering users to create fantastic new avatars, animations and accessories. Bento heads, hands, and much more to come from our super innovative creators. One of the most exciting parts is to see what the creator communities dream up for Bento! There’s a Knowledge Base article about the enhanced skeleton for those creators who want to find out more, and a quick search for “bento” on the Marketplace shows work is already being created that utilizes the new feature.

 Community Gateways

We've resurrected and modernized our technology for enabling communities and educational institutions in Second Life to build their own account creation and user introduction gateways. A number of new gateways are ready to open, with more joining soon. Keep an eye on this blog for more information about the application process and the program - coming soon!

Website Update

A major update of the infrastructure for secondlife.com brings improvements in security and maintainability. This was a long labour of love and all of the teams who worked on it performed miracles of concentration and cooperation to get it done. It may not be a very visible change, but it was a huge undertaking and we are happy to have it implemented site wide.

Creepy Crawl & Costume Contests

Halloween is a special time of the year in Second Life. It’s a graveyard smash to join in the fun with a get-together that travels around the Grid, sharing our costumes and good times with others. Add costumes and dancing to the mix to kick things up a notch and you have a full on party! We certainly loved seeing everyone in their Halloween best.creepycrawl pic by naria panthar.jpg

Shop til You Drop Inworld Shopping Event

We gathered some of the finest in spooky items from a variety of Merchants and had them set up shop for your one stop Halloween shopping. It really brought the spirit of Halloween to the misty little village.

Marketplace 12 Days of Savings Sale

This year, we once again joined forces with some of the top-selling Merchants on the Marketplace to bring you wonderful holiday deals - up to 70% off - in the 12 Days of Savings Sale.

Snowball Showdown

Residents and Lindens took to the Snowball Fight Arena once more for an epic battle of snow-flinging, ice-slinging action. There’s lots of sparing of wits, words, and especially winter snow! snowballfight pic by torley.jpg

Jolly Holiday Crawl

Before the aforementioned battle of snowballs, we all took a nice peaceful crawl across four beautifully decorated winter regions. Chatted, plotted our snowball strategies, and enjoyed one another's company while listening to holiday music. It’s always nice to gather with friends and have a good time.

Winter Wonderland

Your winter should include a trip to this amazingly whimsical and beautiful region put together especially for the holidays. True to its name, this is a spectacular spot to visit when you have some time to play in the snow, ride the Ferris Wheel, hit the hills on a sled, and get some snowball fighting in.Winter_Wonderland_002.png

 

We look forward to bringing you much more in the coming year - some of which is already well underway - and we’ll continue to share news with you on our blog as even more exciting things develop!

The Drax Files: World Makers - Episode 42: Death Row Designs

by Community Manager on ‎12-16-2016 09:16 AM - last edited on ‎12-22-2016 11:23 AM by Community Manager

All the way from the far-reaching borders of Germany and the Netherlands, Draxtor Despres joins Death Row Design’s Jaimy Hancroft to chat about a little more than just the weather -- in this episode of the Drax Files.

Death Row Designs is a staple in Second Life  - providing a post-apocalyptic and dystopian spin on fashion, decor and architecture. Jaimy’s dark, grungy style has made her a favorite of many Residents over the 10 years that she’s been in Second Life, and now she is able to support herself with her brand.

With help from her sister Eowyn Swords - who does 3D modelling for Death Row Designs - Jaimy’s unique and creative work appears in a variety of events from the Arcade Gacha to many of the big shopping events inworld.

Another compelling aspect of Jaimy’s work in Second Life, is her commitment to Fantasy Faire to benefit Relay for Life of Second Life. To read more about her personal inspiration from her father, Mario, and how her culinary flare helped channel her creativity - watch the full video below.

THE SNOW IS BRIGHT in the VILLAGE of LIGHTS

Winter Wonderland is once again alive with the sights and sounds of holiday delights and snowball fights! To get there, stop by one of the portal parks, follow the trail to the Winter Wonderland teleport portal, and tumble into an enchanted land of breathtaking beauty.

First you will land in the Village of Lights - a quaint little town with spectacular lights, bustling with holiday spirit. Click the red gift packages that you encounter here for some freebies and gifts to enjoy.

SNOWBALL ARENA

Snowball-slinging weapons are available in the nearby kiosks, and Premium members can equip a Premium badge for access to the ultimate in snowball fight arsenal! I can’t stress enough that you will want to do a little recon on the arena layout, because coming soon there will be an inworld event that you won’t want to miss. Check here for the details!

WINTER SNOW TRACK

Thrill-seekers will want to grab a snowboard and/or snowmobile from the handy vendors and hit the ice slopes at full speed!

Premium members can access upgraded vehicles with their badge to unlock even speedier cruising through the four-region wide race track full of bumps, hills, and  jumps.

ICE SKATE ARENA

Not everyone is a dare devil - some of us like to hit the ice with the grace of a swan - and that is possible at the Ice Skate Arena. You bring the hot cocoa, we’ll bring the skates -  free from nearby vendors.  Once again, Premium members who wear their badge will find an extra prize full of customization options to fit your style and avatar. Take your sweetheart for a spin on the frozen lake and snuggle up to warm your toes after at the ferris wheel.

FERRIS WHEEL

A romantic view of the Winter Wonderland tundra is gleaned from atop the Ferris Wheel.  A breath-taking glimpse across the entire wonderland vista, under a shower of fireworks is possibly one of the best things to witness here. Have your snapshot finger ready, and your special someone at your side.

EXCLUSIVE GIFT for PREMIUM RESIDENTS

Ice Shack, baby! When you need to get away to do a little thinking and ponder the greater things in life, why not drop this cozy and rustic shack on a chunk of ice and do a little fishing? Premium members can pick up their Ice Shack at any of the Premium Kiosks, along with your Premium Badge to unlock all the cool, exclusive features that are available at Winter Wonderland.
