Loverush UK video filmed in Second Life

Watch this brilliant Loverush UK video filmed in Second Life featuring a massive club classic “Twilight” by Kirsty. Twilight was filmed live in Second Life on Loverush’s Global Island. This neat video was filmed on Kirstens S22 Viewer with Fraps software to film.

It’s always great to see great talent in Second Life and SL videos uploaded on YouTube.

The film lasts for 4 minutes & 7 seconds. Enjoy watching! 🙂

Spaceport Alpha & Spaceport Bravo sims return

Good news during the past 24 hours is that Spaceport Alpha & Spaceport Bravo sims are back online on the grid after weeks of being offline. Both sims have content like before and nothing has changed in terms of builds. Apparently there is still work to be done as for the conditions of the sims and more details will be released soon by Katherine Prawl. I’m glad to see the regions return this week and i’m sure with SL community support/long term donors the sims will remain for years to come.

Katherine Prawl wrote a comment on NWN yesterday saying that the ISM sims are back online. YAY!

THE ISM IS BACK!!! Thanks to Wagner, and the community response in the blogosphere, and the rational reaction of a higher-up Linden, the museum is back on previous terms. We don’t need to buy new islands, the tier remains the same, and now the work begins. We need to normalize the IP issues with our builders, and we need to arrange reliable funding for the future. That crowdfunding idea Wagner mentioned early on is one option, and even beyond a one-time event, we’ll be talking to long-term donors.

Thanks, everyone, for your support! Watch our blog for announcements of a “Grand RE-Opening” party soon!
