Second Life Grid Statistics – July 2021 Update


Second Life Main Grid Size

On Sunday 4th July 2021 the Second Life Grid Survey which tracks the economic metrics updated with last week’s main grid size stats. Since April 2021 Second Life is still showing positive grid growth mainly through private estates it appears. Roughly 400 new regions have been added since early April 2021 which is great news. Yay! πŸ™‚

If the Second Life grid regions could reach 28, 000+ within the next few years it would go back to 2012/2013 levels where the main grid was bigger. It’s going to reach 27, 000 main grid regions within the next month or so if trends continue as they are.

Total Main Grid Regions Historical Stats

  • 26, 504 – 11th April 2021
  • 25, 160 – 7th June 2020
  • 24, 147 – 2nd June 2019
  • 23, 811 – 30th December 2018
  • 23, 332 – 31st December 2017
  • 24, 886 – 3rd January 2016
  • 25, 611 – 4th January 2015

  • 28, 036 – 6th January 2013
  • 28, 254 – 10th December 2012

Linden owned regions have slightly dropped a little but I think this will increase again in months ahead with the expansion of the Bellisseria continent with the new release of the Fantasy Linden Homes sub continent expected before the end of the year. There could be another LH theme release happening but that’s still yet to be confirmed from the lab.

Second Life User Concurrency

Softhyena SL Stats website provides updated Second Life statistics on real time online users, the exchange rate and registered users (no longer available). The focus on this page is mainly the Second Life user concurrency which tracks the past 24 hours, past 60 days and the past year.

At the start of 2021 the daily Second Life user concurrency was doing alright averaging between 55, 000 to 57, 000 at peak. Since March 2021 the daily Second Life user concurrency has actually dropped slightly for whatever reason. We are now in the summer months so I would imagine this trend will continue until September 2021 roughly when more residents start logging into Second Life again as the autumn/winter kicks in.

So far in July 2021 the maximum daily concurrency is reaching around the 51, 000 mark going down to 29, 000 for the minimum daily concurrency average.

July 2021 Daily Concurrency Levels

  • Maximum Daily Concurrency: 47, 000 to 51, 000
  • Median Daily Concurrency: 38, 000 to 41, 000
  • Minimum Daily Concurrency: 29, 000 to 33, 000

Highest peak so far in 2021 was 57, 767 on 29th March 2021.  

Recap Of 2020

At the start of 2020 the daily average peak was around the 50, 000 mark. Between March 2020 and May 2020 the daily average maximum Second Life user concurrency stayed around the 60, 000 mark. From late May 2020 until January 2021 the daily maximum figure stayed around 52, 000 to 55, 000 at peak.

The highest 2020 peak was 60, 068 on 13th April 2020. During March & April 2020 the daily concurrency remained high.

Tyche Shepherd chart showing the Second Life concurrency figures from December 2009 to January 2020. As you can see the daily user concurrency peaked back in 2009 and has declined mostly since then which is a real shame. Hopefully the daily user concurrency will start going up soon.

  • December 2009: Max: 80, 000 / Median: 60, 000 / Minimum: 40, 000
  • July 2021: Max: 51, 000 / Median: 38, 000 / Minimum: 29, 000

I think if the daily user concurrency rises around the 55, 000 to 60, 000 mark later this year and then head upwards to 65, 000 in 2022 that would be good news.
