One week to go until SL16B opens

SL16B Map – 13th June 2019

There is now exactly one week to go until the Second Life 16th birthday celebrations (SL16B) opens to the public in Second Life. It looks like Linden Lab and the Moles are running the birthday event this year from what I have been hearing. Exhibitors are still working on getting everything ready on time and the greeter training sessions are almost over.

Looking at the map of the SL16B regions with a week left to go they all look pretty nice. The Exhibitors parcels are all on the west side this year with various builds going east. There is a Linden homes / houseboats region which could have new themes on them. The love heart looks very interesting indeed.

I’m surprised there has not been a website set up for SL16B yet like in previous years. It would be great to have a place where everyone can find daily events, parcel/stage locations, maps, links and other useful information. I think there will be several Meet the Lindens events during the SL16B celebration to discuss new Linden home themes. The dates and times are yet to be announced. I think there will be big talk of Linden Homes and the Premium price changes during SL16B.

There is talk of SL16B bloggers day which could take place early next week (17th-19th). Again no confirmation of this yet. It’s been pretty quiet lately on the news front.

Upcoming SL16B Schedule 

  • SL16B Opening Date: 20th June – 8th July
  • Music Faire: 21st June – 22nd June
  • Second Life Official Birthday: 23rd June
  • Live Events: 23rd June – 29th June

I’m sure there will be announcements in the days ahead on Second Life 16th birthday celebrations. Hopefully SL16B will be another great birthday celebration.

SL16B regions open to exhibitors

SL16B is just around the corner 

Apparently the SL16B regions opened to exhibitors on Sunday 26th May. Successful exhibitors received notecards notifying them they had been accepted for the upcoming Second Life 16th birthday celebrations. They were then invited into the SL16B Exhibitors group then showed a plot to get started on the west side of the birthday regions.

The SL16B regions are starting to look very nice on the map however a lot of work still has to be done before the big grand opening.

  • SL16B opens to the public on 20th June through until 8th July 2019
  • Training sessions are now underway for SL16B greeters
  • Patch Linden has confirmed that there will be a preview of the next style homes at SL16B – (see the south east corner)

(6th May vs 27th May)

Extended Applications Update

SLB regions under construction

As many know Second Life officially turns 16 years old next month on 23rd June 2019 and construction work has already started over at the SLB Build regions for the upcoming big birthday celebrations.

The celebrations start on 20th June through until 8th July 2019. As you can see below there are 20 regions to explore which will be reflecting on the 1950s theme. I was born in the 90s so this is way before my time.

Work has already started on the pathways and main building areas across the SLB regions. Exhibitors will be allowed soon to start building on their parcels and as always it will be great to see it all take shape.

Applications still open but will be closing next week. 

In the SLB 20 Build region below there is a connected houseboats region which is rather interesting and this could mean a third batch/new themes are in the works. We will have to wait and see.

There is a SLB Dev region north of the SLB regions which looks rather interesting. This region is a development region.

I’ll be posting more updates very soon on SL16B.
