OpenSim Total Land Area Still Increasing – March 2018 Update

Land area of OpenSim’s public grids, in standard region equivalents. (Hypergrid Business data.)

According to Hypergrid Business latest report for March 2018 it looks like OpenSim total land area is still increasing month on month. Apparently OpenSim land area gained a total of 3, 400 standard region equivalents this month. The number of active users increased by 1, 300 this month.

The biggest grid on OpenSim at the moment is the OSgrid with a total of 20, 203 standard region equivalents. Kitely comes in 2nd place with a total of 17, 372 regions followed by Atek Grid with just 7, 011 regions. The grids with the most active users at the moment: OSgrid with 4, 183 users followed by Metropolis with 3, 473 users and GreekLife with 2, 313 users.

For some reason InWorldz have not reported their stats for this month or last month.

Recently Kitely reached a new milestone of 100, 000 registered users with significant growth over the past year. The Kitely Market now has “11,566 product listings in¬†Kitely Market¬†containing 22,261 product variations, of which 17,218 are exportable. Kitely Market has delivered items to 257 OpenSim grids to date”.

Exportable products on Kitely continue to increase. (Kitely Market Data.)

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.
