Today the Pfaffenthal 1867 regions have sadly closed down in Second Life after having a strong presence inworld for many years. Pfaffenthal 1867 is moving over to Sansar because the land is free, the graphics is better, the use of VR headsets and real physical interactivity.
I understand that the possibilities are big on Sansar however I think it’s a real shame the regions have now left Second Life. The regions were an expansive virtual replica of Pfaffenthal in Luxembourg City. The regions will be missed now it’s all gone in Second Life. It’s a sad day for the Second Life community for sure.
The announcement last week sent out by Hauptmann Weydert reads this…
The moment has finally arrived, for the 1867 project to move on to SANSAR, were land is free, where we can have better graphics,VR headsets and real physical interactivity. Note that sansar works very well on a normal PC,for desktop mode you do NOT need a gamer PC.
All the 1867 sims in second life will be shut down next monday, on the 26th of november. Please pack all your stuff by then.
We will have a good bye party, saturday the 24th of november at 10 am at café neuen.
Please join us in SANSAR and be among the first to get a new house there! we have 4×4 km !
cheers to all of you!
Earlier today I went for a look around the regions before they went offline. The regions are just wonderful and there was so much to see. Maybe the regions may come back to Second Life in the future. It’s a huge loss and hit to Second Life i think.

Shame, it was a really pretty place in SL. I am not sure if moving to Sansar (and leaving SL) was a wise decision. I tried Sansar before, but those super long loading times are just ridiculous. Other people i know have the same problem. Nobody wants to wait 30 minutes or more to get in.
It’s a nice selection of regions with great history. I think they should run a smaller version in SL and Sansar.
30 minutes is far too long but maybe the wait will be lower next year with it moving to Steam. The lab might go mobile in the years ahead.
Sad I never saw, have a Mac so Sansar is a no go.
It’s a great selection of regions and now it’s a big loss for SL

that is sad and Sansar may be good for some but anyone with a apple can not go.
