A visit to Mont Saint Michel in Second Life


Mont Saint Michel

Today I went to visit Mont Saint Michel in Second Life which is due to be closed down anytime now. It’s sad to see yet another well-known location in Second Life about to disappear due to economical reasons and it’s a real shame the region can’t be saved.

For those that have not yet visited it’s a really beautiful recreation of the well-known France Mont Saint Michel and it’s really worth visiting. Mont Saint Michel in Second Life came online in 2008 and over the years it’s been a very popular Second Life destination.

I believe Linden Lab should preserve the much loved Mont Saint Michel in Second Life or the creator/owner should get someone to keep it up. Today (1st October) Mont Saint Michel in Second Life is still online.

Hurry and visit! – http://slurl.com/secondlife/Mont%20Saint%20Michel/222/95/26

YadNi s Junkyard has closed down after 11 years in Second Life

After 11 years the well known YadNi s Junkyard in Second Life has closed down which is a massive loss and very sad to see this landmark disappear. YadNi s Junkyard started back on 6th April 2004 and it was the first freebies store in Second Life history to launch. YadNi s Junkyard was one of the top favourite places for new residents to get freebies, getting started in Second Life and it was a good places to make new friends.

YadNi Monde posted this message on Google+ on June 23rd 2015.

YadNi s Junkyard has closed today.
After 11 years of helping Thousands new residents with REAL freebies, full perms, for free, and one of the most long lasting money trees, I had to close the place today.
I hope you have good souvenirs of that place.

It’s going to be hard to imagine what the grid will be like now without YadNi s Junkyard but the memories will stay with us for sure. This is the end of an era and YadNi s Junkyard will be deeply missed by everyone.

SS Galaxy is returning soon


SS Galaxy

SS Galaxy regions

As many know already the famous SS Galaxy ship in Second Life closed down after 8 years earlier this month and the regions are no longer accessible. The closure marked the end of an era but there is exciting news on the horizon because it’s going to be modified so that Linden Lab can place it back inworld as a Museum soon.

The ship will be open for visitors in the near future and the ship will be preserved as a piece of Second Life history so thats the good news at the moment. More information will be released soon.

Changes ahead!

  • No previous management or crew will be aboard 
  • No rentals or events will be hosted
  • The ship will exist in a museum state 
  • Linden Lab takes ownership of the sims

On Tuesday 12th May 2015, DBDigital Epsilon who is the former Manging Director of SS Galaxy said this in a recent blog post

Dear Supporters and Friends of the SS Galaxy,

There have been many rumors cycling regarding the Galaxy and what really happened.  I can’t release that information as of yet.  However, I can now say that the SS Galaxy has been acquired by Linden Labs and will return.  She is currently undergoing retrofitting to sail under the Linden Labs flag.  I have been tirelessly converting all the transferable prims I personally owned to Linden Lab ownership, and my part of the project is now complete.

Sadly being under Linden Lab’s flag also means that none of the previous management or crew will be aboard in any sort of capacity.  I have also been told there will be no rentals or events.  This means she will not quite be the Galaxy you know and love.  But she will still exist in a museum state and be open for visitation in the near future.

More information will be released as I can.  I wish to thank everyone again from the guests, to the staff, and beyond.  You all made the Galaxy the special place she was, and no one can take that from us.
