Check out the Virtual Ability SL Blog for the latest news and events.
According to the latest post from SLUniverse Forums on New SL Sims in past week thread it’s seems like the total of main grid regions have dropped below the 27, 500 mark which is very concerning and alarming. The sad news I think is that SL regions still continue to drop further down into the red each week. I hope for things to pick up soon.
Grid size as of 21st April 2013:
Total number of Main Grid regions is now 27, 464 ( 20, 356 private estates& 7, 108 Linden owned)
Total private estate net losses this year come to 636 regions, a 3.0% since 30th December 2012.
The main reasons I think is due to the global financial crisis which i’m sure is having a huge effect on spending money etc and the other reason is that tier level in Second Life is still high from what I’ve been hearing from friends during the first part of 2013.
I hope that the grid will grow again this year or next year. Many factors will have to come in effect to make this happen for a growing SL economy like it was many years ago.
What needs to happen to get growth again in regions etc in Second Life ?
