Second Life Grid Statistics – October 2021 Update


This is the October 2021 Update on the latest Second Life Grid Statistics including region stats, daily concurrency stats and Second Life website traffic. It’s hard to believe there are just a few months left of 2021. My next grid statistics blog post will be published end of December 2021.

Second Life Regions

Since the end of September 2021 Second Life has continued to show positive net growth from 27, 220 on 26th September 2021 to 27, 284 as of 24th October 2021. Private Estate growth has slowly slightly while there is a big increase in Linden Owned regions in recent weeks. Linden owned regions count was 8, 867 on 26th September and now it’s gone up to 8, 934 as of 24th October 2021.

At the end of 2020 there was 25, 614 regions in total in Second Life. Since then the grid has showed positive net growth for Private Estates and Linden Owned regions. There has been more interest this year it appears which is very good news for the lab.

Main Grid Size as of 24th October 2021

The growth of Linden owned regions is mainly due to the expansion of the Bellisseria continent from the east side of the chalet sub continent and west/north side of the new fantasy sub continent. This is set to rise further in the next 6 to 12 months as more Linden home themes are being either worked on now or being planned soon.

The next Linden home theme will probably be announced at the 2021 SL Christmas Expo happening from 3rd to 14th December 2021.

Second Life Daily Concurrency

The daily Second Life user concurrency is staying stable at the moment with no major maximum peaks during the past month or so. The daily user concurrency seems to be averaging between 30, 000 at non-peak to 54, 000 at peak. At the start of 2021 the daily peak levels were slightly higher with 57, 000 (average) inworld and as the year has gone on it’s dropped down.

I would expect the Second Life daily user concurrency to rise again slightly during the winter (2021) and into early spring 2022 as everyone normally stays inside. Something between 34, 000 to 58, 000 I predict in the winter months.

Daily User Concurrency Levels – October 2021

  • Maximum Daily Concurrency: 48, 000 to 54, 000 (average)
  • Median Daily Concurrency: 38, 000 to 42, 000 (average)
  • Minimum Daily Concurrency: 30, 000 to 32, 000 (average)

Firestorm Gacha Sale Fund Raiser


Jessica Lyon who is the Project Manager of The Phoenix Firestorm Project, Inc is asking the Second Life community to help with keeping the lights on. Jessica mentions in the blog post that the Firestorm Project incurs significant expenses with server hosting, in world costs, licensing fees, website ads, region tier costs and paying for performers at events and more.

The Firestorm average yearly operating costs are around $7000 and this latest fund raiser will hopefully keep things running smoothly for the next 3 years. Jessica says that a Gacha sale “feels like the best way to ask for help since it is more of a trade where you get something you like immediately in return for your support!”.

The main SLURL is here.

NOT TRINKETS! Everything you can imagine from furniture to pets, to vehicles to art to mesh avatars. I think I even saw a lighthouse and a ferry boat. WHAT?? I didn’t even know that could be a gacha. For some reason I imagine trinkets when I hear gacha but looking around at what we have out, that couldn’t be more wrong. Really nice, useful content!

Brands like KittyCats, DRD, loads of Maitreya, MadPea. Concept, Lonic Darn and just SOOOO much more. Far too much to list and prices ranging from $L10 for bargains to $L100-$L300 for rare items. We use no vendors so you know exactly what you are getting.

If cool content isn’t your thing but you still want to help support us, we do have a few tip birds around the place too.

Our region is full… with very little prim allocation left for anything else but we still have WAY more to rez out. So as things get sold we will be adding more. Check back frequently as this gacha sale will be ongoing for a while.

Please spread the word about this Firestorm Gacha sale fund raiser and keep the Firestorm lights on. Every donation makes a huge difference.
