Final goodbye to SL11B


Final goodbye to SL11B

Final goodbye to SL11B

Today is the last day for public viewing for the SL11B regions before the sims go offline next week. The breakdown of the sims will start from Sunday 6th July 2014 until mid next week. I decided to take one last trip to the sims this morning to take some snapshots of some interesting SL11B exhibits for the final time. See my SL11B blog coverage here and my SL11B snapshots.

For those that are interested in staying updated on future Second Life birthdays, join the new group called SLB Community Celebration. This group will be the new place for all SLB info and announcements. SL11B was a huge success from start to end with good coverage this year. The SL12B countdown has now started and planning for that will start in early 2015.

Remaining SL11B Timeline

  • SL11B sims remain open until 6pm SLT today on Saturday 5th July 2014
  • SL11B Takedown: July 6, 2014 at 12:00 am SLT – July 8, 2014 at 11:30 pm SLT
  • SL11B Sims Taken Offline July 9, 2014

What are your thoughts on SL11B and what would you like to see happen for SL12B ? 

 

 

SL11B live performances end today


Today is the last day for live performances at the SL11B Community Celebration and the 11 sims will remain open for viewing until Saturday 5th July 2014. There will be no performances during next week but this is the ideal time to explore the sims before they go offline. If you missed any of the SL11B talks during week 1, please check out the videos here of them all.

Well done to all the SL11B staff, volunteers, performers, builders and everyone else who made this year a huge success. I guess the countdown has now started for SL12B which will be held in mid-late June 2015. It will be bigger with more surprises i’m sure. What improvements/ideas would you like to see happen for SL12B ?

New SL11B blog posts worth checking out today!

Guide to SL11B Pod Tours


One of the main attractions at SL11B community celebration is the exciting Pod Tours which guides you through all of the exhibits and gives you information about them. Yavanna Llanfair designed the two Pod Tours at SL11B and this year there are surprises along the way depending on the environment. The SL11B sims are truly awesome and I have to say that the pod tour is a good way to see everything.

There are 22 free pods with departures every 4 minutes at each station. The pod tour system is split into two separate areas which include the Western Sims and Eastern Sims. The Western sims pod tour lasts for around 38 minutes and the Eastern sims pod tour lasts for around 45 minutes so please keep that in mind. To ride a pod, click the cone at either one of the SL11B Pod Stations and enjoy the fantastic tour! :)

Getting Started

Firstly behind the pod stations there is a SL11B info package to grab for free giving you all the information you need including landmarks, maps, hunts and performances.

Happy 11th Birthday to Second Life


Today marks Second Life’s official 11th birthday anniversary since the launch back on 23rd June 2003 and for the next few weeks to mark this special birthday occasion there will be grid wide parties happening. It’s time to party and celebrate 11 incredible years of Second Life. For me I’ve been around for almost 8 years and I’ve been participating in Second Life birthdays since 2007. Every year the celebrations just get better and more exciting. The SL community comes together and that’s great to be part of. *party time*

For those interested in the history of Second Life during the past 11 years then check out the History of Second Life SL wiki page. I’ve been trying to keep the page updated with new content and I hope to continue adding for years to come. Please check out my historical posts below and enjoy the 11th birthday celebrations! :)

Happy 11th Birthday, Second Life!
