Second Life shows positive grid growth during 2020


Main Grid Size as of 27th December 2020

Since the start of 2020 Second Life has steadily increased it’s overall grid size in terms of regions which is very good news indeed. The total area of all regions as of 27th December 2020 is 1678.64 square kilometres. That’s still a big amount to say the least.

Good news is that both Linden Owned and Private Estates have showed signs of positive net growth this year. Yay! 🙂

  • Total: 25, 614
  • Linden Owned: 8, 531
  • Private Estates: 17, 083

Interest for private estates has increased more in recent weeks (over 300 private estates) since Linden Lab announced that private estates were back available again in limited quantity and I think it’s back to normal now. Hopefully during 2021 there will be more interest in private estates in Second Life which would be a good thing.

Linden Lab have added hundred’s of new Linden owned regions during the course of 2020 expanding the Bellisseria continent eastwards with Linden themed style homes including victorian homes, log homes and stilt homes. The Moles have worked so hard in building new regions and then rolling it out to the public via the QA process as fast as possible. Great work! 🙂

More Linden home regions are coming during 2021 which will be exciting I’m sure for the Second Life community as there is still a big demand for Linden Homes. Chalet Linden homes will be released in first part of 2021 followed by new Linden theme releases later.

Every year events like Relay for Life of Second Life, Garden Expo, Second Life birthday and other big events do effect the grid numbers for a short time. There is a surge in regions then a sudden decline once the event is over. The grid statistics are updated every week on the Second Life Grid Survey.

I hope the Second Life grid will continue to grow in size in the new year and beyond that. Linden Lab main focus is on Second Life nowadays adding more improvements and features. I will blog about the grid statistics at various times during 2021. Stay tuned for that.
