Second Life Private Estates Net Losses Was Lower During 2017


Weekly net change in private estates for 2017

It’s been another bumpy ride for private estates in Second Life during 2017 but according to the latest update by Tyche Shepherd the Second Life grid lost 677 private estate regions in total which is a 4.0 loss in 52 weeks. Back In 2016 the net loss was much higher standing at 992 private estates lost. Back in 2015 the net loss was 819 (4.4% loss).

The good news from this is that the weekly net loss change in private estates has slightly dropped since 2015 but it’s still high though. There hasn’t been a lot of positive net growth for private estates in Second Life since then either as you can see from the graph above. It would be nice to see more positive region growth during 2018 in Second Life.

End of 2017 Second Life Regions Update 

  • Total Main Grid regions – 23, 332
  • Total Private Estates – 16, 106
  • Total Linden Owned – 7, 226

Second Life Grid Statistics – September 2017 Update


Historical Daily Concurrency Since December 2009

These are latest Second Life Grid Statistics for September 2017 from the Second Life Grid Survey run by Tyche Shepherd.

The Second Life Grid Survey is by far the best source for daily Second Life grid statistics to check out. You can check out the latest region database numbers, useful economic metrics and much more.

I pointed out in my last Second Life Grid Statistics made back in early July 2017 that the grid saw a tiny amount of region growth from Private Estates during the first half of 2017. However the total amount of Main Grid regions has been dropping throughout 2017.

Since July 2017 Private Estates and even Linden Owned regions have declined down hill. Personally I don’t think the launch of Sansar Creator Beta effected the grid numbers or had any sort of big impact that some were guessing was going to happen.

Second Life Grid Statistics Summer Update 2017


This is the 2017 summer update on the latest Second Life grid statistics currently available. My last statistics blog post was published back in April 2017 where I reported the grid was still declining.

All stats used in this blog post are from the Second Life Grid Survey & New SL Sims in past week thread via SLUniverse Forums. Tyche Shepherd collects the data from Bots that helps with the weekly reports every week.

Second Life Grid Size 

Since the start of 2017 the total amount of Main Grid regions have dropped further during Q1 & Q2 with only a tiny amount of region growth from Private Estates.

Linden Owned regions have increased since the start of 2017 is most interesting. Earlier this year regions dropped under the 24, 000 mark for the first time. If things don’t change before the end of 2017 then expect the total amount of regions to be closer around the 23, 000 mark.

Daily Concurrency

The daily concurrency in Second Life seems to be averaging between 49, 000 (at max) – 28, 000 (lowest) on a daily basis at the moment. The Median Daily Concurrency is now at 40, 000.

The daily concurrency has dropped down since the start of 2017 and it’s not surprising as we are heading into the summer months.

Sansar

Sansar Open Creator Beta is expected to launch this summer. There is still no confirmed opening date yet. It will be interesting to see if Sansar will have any impact on Second Life grid numbers going forward.
