The SL17B Exhibits Are Still Open

Last weekend marked the end of the major events and live performances at SL17B. The only big event still going now is the SL17B Shop & Hop shopping event which ends Sunday 12th July 2020. The exhibits and birthday regions are still open for another two weeks roughly. There is a useful list of SL17B community experiences worth checking out. 

SL17B core regions open until 12th July 2020
SL17B Shop & Hop Shopping Event still open

For those that are visiting this week and next week the lag should now be at normal levels. It should be easier now to explore the regions sightseeing and hanging out with family/friends. It’s best to visit during non-peak hours to enjoy it more.  

Ebbe Linden & Saffia live at SL17B last week (22nd June)

The SL17B Meet the Linden sessions were a huge success again this year with a large audience every day participating inworld and on the live online stream. Well done to everyone that made it work this year. It was good to hear good progress being made with the uplift work, the mobile app, premium plus, Linden Homes and much more. I think before the end of the year there will be some interesting announcements on Second Life.

The new Stilt Linden Homes can still be viewed in the SL17B Enchant region. The LH Demo region will remain open for the next few weeks. After that the Stilt Linden Homes won’t be released until later in 2020 when residents will be able to start moving in. I will post more on this when new updates becomes available.

What do you think of SL17B so far ?

 

 

Poll: Which Linden Home theme is your favourite ?


I would love to know what Linden Home theme is your most favourite in Secone Life ?. It would be a good snapshot hopefully of which Linden Home themes are most popular and those that are not so popular.

Poll options include the old Linden Home themes and all the new ones. I will publish the results in early July 2020.

Catch Up With The SL17B Meet the Lindens Series


For anyone that has missed any of the SL17B Meet the Lindens series so far here are all the catch up videos for reference. The 2020 Meet the Lindens sessions at SL17B have been very popular indeed and they have been most interesting because of all the latest developments going on at Linden Lab.

All these sessions run for at least a hour and a bit. It’s worth watching for sure.
