Second Life year in review 2013 – The last six months

This is the second special post looking back at the last six months of 2013 in Second Life on what happened between July to December 2013.

There have been many Linden Lab announcements, big SL news stories and big events that shaped Second Life during the past six months of 2013.

See my first special post of my year in review from the first six months of 2013 in Second Life from January to June 2013. There are just five days left until the brand new year 2014.

Big Improvements made to Second Life in 2013 which is worth mentioning…

  • Linden Lab added more than 3, 000 new entries added to the Second Life Destination Guide during 2013
  • Project Sunshine added faster and more reliable avatar loading speeds
  • Project Interesting reduced load times and the time to draw objects in regions
  • Materials support enabled everyone to create photorealistic textured objects inworld using normal and specular maps
  • The Fitted Mesh Project expanded the creative potential of mesh
  • CHUI introduced a new hub user interface to communicate inworld
  • SLShare introduced an opt-in feature to share inworld locations, photos, check-ins with Facebook

In 2014 I’m really excited about the following things…

  • Second Life on Mobile devices
  • Full integration of the Oculus Rift
  • And there is more!


Wow, so much has happened in Second Life during 2013 with many ups and downs. I wonder what 2014 has to offer ? and hopefully it will be a great year for everyone.

You can expect more blogging and more great snapshots in 2014 from me in Second Life/OpenSim grids. I’m excited for the new year ahead in Second Life.

Thanks so much for reading my blog posts and supporting me during 2013. *smiles* – Bring on 2014!
