According to the latest weekly report published on Sunday 15th September the year to date for net Private Estate growth now stands at 88 regions which equals 0.5% growth since the start of 2019. This is great news to report on for once because in previous years the grid had been declining for some time.
There has been more interest in Private Estates this year than in previous years and that’s always a good thing. I think this has to do something with the reduced land prices in Second Life that the lab rolled out earlier in the year. It’s definitely helped from looking at the grid numbers below. Hopefully Private Estates will continue to show more net growth in the last three months of 2019.
The total area of Second Life is now 1594.56 (KM).
Stats as of 15th September:
- Total Main Grid Regions: 24, 331
- Private Estates: 16, 208
- Linden Owned: 8, 123
Back in June 2019 I reported that most of the growth came from Linden Owned regions for the new Bellisseria continent which opened back in mid April 2019. More new regions are expected to arrive in the weeks and months ahead to complete the new Bellisseria continent. Probably around 50 – 100+ Linden Owned regions before the end of the year. If the lab shuts down the older Linden Home continents and the SSP continent it will effect the grid stats deeply. A big shock to say the least.
Stats back on 2nd June 2019:
- Total Main Grid Regions: 24, 147
- Private Estates: 16, 130
- Linden Owned: 8, 017
It will be great to see it go from 0.5% to 1% positive growth before the end of this year. For now it’s good to say the Second Life economy is healthy and it’s recovering at long last.
