On Friday 25th June 2021 marked the end of the special SL18B talks. Saffia Widdershins speaks to a whole bunch of Moles during this episode. It’s a really interesting show with some history, current projects and whats to come. This episode runs for 1 hour and 52 minutes.
The Moles are apart of the Linden Department of Public Works (LDPW) focused on improvements on the mainland and across Second Life. The LDPW worked on the old Linden Homes which is now over 12 years old for Premium residents. They were widely popular, mostly prims and was cloned four times.
The Moles main focus now is the expansion of the Bellisseria continent which includes many theme types and covers hundreds of new Linden Homes. Bellisseria first formed back in April 2019 and now connects to the main landmasses. The new Fantasy Linden Home announced at SL18B will be released later this year and it will be on it’s sub-continent. The lab are still deciding where the place the new area.
There was talk about the games on the grid and the annual events that the Moles works on. The seasonal events include isle of view, Halloween, winter wonderland and the yearly birthday events. For anyone that is interested to apply to be a Mole – drop your resume notecard to Derrick Linden. More information here.
The Moles focus turns towards the expansion of the bellisseria continent and the Halloween event once SL18B ends early in July 2021. During the past year the Moles have been very busy at making Second Life more awesome.
Overall the Moles/Lindens do such a great job building new areas and organising events on the grid. There is still lot’s to look forward to including another 3-4 Linden Home themes and new various improvements over the next 12 months. Next year for SL19B in June 2022 it will be interesting to hear about all the changes made.
The SL18B talks this week have been most interesting once again and I guess there is loads of things to look forward to during the rest of 2021/2022. The attendance levels have been high this year inworld and on the live YouTube streams.
Can’t wait for SL19B next year.
