Linden Lab Increases Full Private Regions To 30, 000 Prims


Today Linden Lab have announced starting today full private region owners have the option to upgrade to 30, 000 prims which is very good news indeed. Upgrading to the new 30, 000 prims limit will cost $30 USD per region starting today

There will be a additional monthly maintenance fee* of $30 USD so please keep that in mind too. It’s worth pointing out that the upgrade must be maintained for at least a month and downgrading to 20, 000 prims will be a one off charge of $30 USD.

For those interested in having 30, 000 prims upgrading is rather simple just submit a case through the support portal under the case type of Land & Region > Land Impact Change Request.

Here is the blog announcement in full: 

Owning land in Second Life has never been more valuable, and now is a great time to get your own space or expand your current land holdings.

We’ve recently rolled out increased Land Impact for all regions, and last week, Full Private Regions went up from 15,000 to 20,000 prims – a 33% increase, at no additional charge!

Starting today, Full Private Region owners now have the option to upgrade to an even more impressive 30,000 prims! That’s an additional 50% more room for creating, decorating, designing your own store –  whatever you can dream up!

Upgrading to 30,000 prims costs $30 USD per Region and will incur an additional monthly maintenance fee*. For additional information about Private Region management and this Land Impact upgrade program, please visit our Knowledge Base.

To request an upgrade, please submit a case through the support portal on the Second Life website under the case type Land & Region > Land Impact Change Request.

With the recent increases in land prims across all regions in Second Life it would be great to see now Private Regions start to increase again on the grid. In recent years there has been a steady decline in Private Regions due to various reasons but perhaps now that may all now change for the better.

Linden Lab announces Second Life Skill Gaming applications will reopen on 3rd January 2017


On 1st December Linden Lab posted a new blog post announcing that Second Life Skill Gaming Applications will reopen on 3rd January 2017 for those wanting to become authorised creators or operators of Skill Games in Second Life.

There are now five more weeks to go until applications will reopen again. Back in 2014 Linden Lab announced that gambling is strictly prohibited and that it’s a violation of the Second Life Terms of Service.

The lab mentions in the blog post that “games of skill are legally permitted in many jurisdictions, and we’ve seen that many Second Life users are interested in playing such games for Linden Dollars“.

What is allowed ? “Skill games that offer Linden Dollar payouts are allowed in Second Life, but each game, its creator, its operator, and the region on which it is operated must be approved by Linden Lab.

For more information on Skill Gaming in Second Life there is a useful FAQ to check out.
