Dirk Talamasca - Passed away on 30th March 2014

A visit to Scrumptious Sweets


Today I went to visit Scrumptious Sweets which is a candy island full of yummy sweets and candies in Second Life. It’s just amazing and it’s a good adventure that’s for sure if you love exploring in Second Life. VISIT HERE

It’s worth pointing out that each day until 25th December, players can go around the candy island to find new hints and prizes. It’s worth doing if you have spare time!

Update on the grid numbers on Second Life and OpenSim during 2014


As of 6th December 2014 the total number of Main Grid regions now stands at 25, 675 with 18, 645 of those being private estates with 7, 030 being Linden owned regions. The total net loss of private estates losses now stands at 628 regions which is 3.3% in 49 weeks down since the start of 2014.

In comparison back on the 5th of January 2014 the total number of Main Grid regions was 26, 227 with 19, 241 of those being private estates with 6, 986 being Linden owned regions.

As of 17th November 2014 there are 54, 123 regions on the top 40 OpenSim’s public grids. In terms of popularity InWorldz, Metropolis and Avination were the popular grids during November 2014. In terms of region counts Virtual Worlds Grid, OSgrid and Kitely had the most regions during November 2014.

In comparison back on 15th January 2014 the top 40 OpenSim public grids region count was 31, 136 total regions. In summary Second Life has declined a little again and OpenSim has kept on growing in size since the start of 2014. Will these trends continue in 2015 ? We will have to wait until this time next year to find out.

 

 

Today is BURN2 Caravansary Grand Opening Day


It’s grand opening day! 

BURN2 2014

BURN2 Caravansary 2014 opens officially today at 12pm SLT/PDT in Second Life through until Sunday 28th October at 11:30pm SLT/PDT. This year it’s going to be the best ever and bigger than before!

The annual event will take place at the Burning Man regions in Second Life as usual and again it’s resident community supported for the 4th year running. As many know BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man festival in real life and it’s all virtual in Second Life. This year there will be a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland with many exciting places to explore and discover. There will be live performances, live shows, lamplighters, rangers, greeters, fire and much more.

BURN2 Caravansary Theme

This year, we will create a caravansary that occupies the crossroads of a dreamland: a bazaar of the bizarre, wherein treasures of every sort, from every land and age, flow in and out to be flaunted, lost, exploited and discovered. This is not a tourist destination, but a home for travelers who come here bearing gifts. Amid the twisting and the turnings of its souk, participants will come upon an inexhaustible array of teeming goods and unexpected services.

Anyone may pose as ‘merchant’ here, and anyone may play a ‘customer’, but nothing in this strange emporium shall have a purchase price — no quid, no pro, no quo — no trade at all will be allowed in this ambiguous arcade. According to a rule of desert hospitality, the only thing of value in this ‘marketplace’ will be one’s interaction with a fellow being.

Our desert inn will also be a scene of luxury and cultivated ease. An apron of fine carpets will spread out beneath the shade of portals that surround a courtyard. Here, travel-wearied pilgrims may relax, inventing pastimes as they watch the whirling world go by.

Workers of great wonders will be welcome here; fakirs, dancers, sadhus, seers and potentates will throng through this performance space, like figures that adorn the fabric of a silk brocade. The sounds of finger cymbals, chimes, and music of acoustic instruments will fill the air.

By night, bathed in the lambent glow of lanterns gently swaying overhead, fire spinners will perform around the Burning Man. This year’s Man will rise directly from the desert floor and tower many stories high. Its massive torso will evoke a tiered pagoda; its ornate head will be a lamp that welcomes people home.

Bystanders become participants; participants share in the burning, spinning cacophony on the virtual Playa.

Will you be attending BURN2 Caravansary 2014 in Second Life ?
