Press Release: Bay City Eleventh Anniversary


It’s time to get excited because Bay City will be celebrating it’s eleventh anniversary later this month on Sunday 19th May 2019. It’s hard to believe Bay City first opened back in May 2008 and it’s grown so much over the past eleven years in Second Life. The events have been amazing and always fun to participate in every year. If you have not participated in the annual anniversary celebrations before then I highly recommend it.

The annual parade starts at 12pm SLT at the band shell in Bay City – Harwich. The parade will then go down route 66 and will finish at the Bay City Fairgrounds in the North Channel region. There will be a live music concert taking place from 1.30pm SLT in the North Channel region. Everyone is welcome to attend! 🙂

BAY CITY, SL (4 May, 2018) – In May of 2008, the mainland community of Bay City were opened to Second Life® residents. Over the last eleven years, Bay City has grown into one of the most vibrant mainland communities, boasting a long-time community focus. To honor their anniversary, Bay City Residents will be hosting their annual parade and live music event this May.

Participants in the annual parade are asked to gather at noon SLT/PDT on Sunday, the 19th of May, to lineup at the band shell in Bay City – Harwich. The parade will wend its way down Route 66 beginning at 12:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, and will conclude at the Bay City Fairgrounds in the North Channel region.

A live concert will kick off at 1:30 p.m. SLT/PDT at the Fairgrounds with GoSpeed of KONA Stream providing music leading into the event until 1:30 p.m.SLT/PDT , followed by Parker Static from 1:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, Melenda Baptiste from 2:30-3:30 p.m. SLT/PDT, and Maximillion Kleen from 3:30-4:30 p.m. SLT/PDT.

All Residents of the Second Life grid are welcomed to participate. Celebration goods, including parade float bases and ideas, are available at the Bay City Community Center, in the Daley Bay region for those who wish to be a part of the parade. Ample viewing areas are provided. The music event is also open to all who desire to attend — not only Residents of Bay City

Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab™ and home to the Bay City Alliance.

It is now the largest Bay city group, and home to most Residents of Bay City.

Lumiya Viewer no longer on the Google Play Store


 

It seems like the well known Lumiya Viewer is no longer available on the Google Play Store. It’s unclear if this is just a small technical issue or something more serious. It could be Alina Lyvette is taking a break for a while.

For me it was one of the best mobile viewers out there for Second Life and OpenSim grids. As many know early last year the Lumiya Viewer was removed from the official Third Party Viewer Directory. Apparently the Lumiya Viewer is still working if you have it installed already.

Lumiya Viewer has been available since August 2017 and the app has been downloaded more than 100, 000 times. Alina Lyvette does have two other apps which are still available today to download – Lumiya Cloud Plugin and Lumiya Voice Plugin. Both of these apps have not been updated for some time.

Within the past 24 hours there has been some discussion about this via reddit.

I hope the Lumiya Viewer app comes back on the Google Play Store soon. If not then at least a download link on the official Lumiya Viewer website would be good.


UPDATE 1 – 2nd May

  • Lumiya Viewer is still up on the Aptoide Android market where you can download it.
