HOT BAY CITY NIGHTS 2014

Event feature top Second Life™ vintage automakers.

BAY CITY, SL (18th August, 2014) – Now in its third year, “Hot Bay City Nights” celebrates Bay City’s mid-century theme as well as its large network of roads. The event will showcase vehicle makers who create automobiles from the Bay City “theme era,” stretching from 1940 to 1965.

Established vintage automobile designers will be found in the Bay City Fairgrounds, in the North Channel region, from August 23-30 to present the best in vintage and retro vehicles for all Second Life™ avatars.

Additional events will provide plenty for all to do, including the crowning of 2014’s Miss Bay City and a number of charity car wasesh. The event will raise funds for Child’s Play, a charity that provides toys and games for children in hospitals around the world.

Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab™ and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life™ and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest Bay city group, and home to most Residents of Bay City.

New Login screen on Second Life Release 3.7.14.292660


Linden Lab has revamped the Second Life viewer login screen this week to make it more simple and cleaner for new users apparently. To see the new changes download and install the latest release via the Second Life Release/3.7.14.292660 release notes page.

From a glance the login area has been moved to the top of the screen with three new login buttons to enter Second Life. The login area has been enlarged with a new look and its more welcoming than before in previous releases of the Second Life viewer. The showcase area below is still the same as before and the logging in process is still the same.

Ten years of Relay Weekend

Ten years of Relay Weekend

The tenth annual Relay Weekend in Second Life opens to the public at 10am SLT today over at the 40+ “RFL” regions. Relay Weekend takes place from Saturday 19th July to Sunday 30th July 2014.

It’s the largest fundraising event in the virtual worlds. This is the 40+ sim event that features all of our teams, as we walk together for 24 hours around the track. Cancer never sleeps…and so for one night each year, we refuse to sleep, to show our commitment to the fight against cancer.

Great work so far

So far this year the RFL of SL volunteers, builders and the main organises of the event have worked so hard to fund raise and support RFL of SL. Good luck to all those taking part in this year’s annual Relay Weekend and lets hope new records will be broken.
