Four more SSP regions added north of the new SSP Continent


New SSPX regions added

According to last week’s new SL regions in the past week thread on the VirtualVerse One Forums it looks like four new SSP regions have been added north of the new SSP continent. These new regions all marked with X at the end I think will be used for testing as it’s right next door to the SSP2 QA Test region. Now there are 389 SPP regions on the grid as of today.

For the moment SSP stands for Super Secret Project. It will be interesting if the lab will change this name when the regions open to the public at some point during 2019.

Here is the first screenshot I took back on 20th August 2018. A small continent of just 80 regions.

Here is a screenshot of what the SSP regions looked like back on 2nd September 2018 when it grew into a large continent of 384 regions.

Here is a screenshot of what the SSP regions looks like today on 16th January 2019.

It looks clear these regions will be used for new Linden homes (look at all those white dots) with a plenty of docks/waterways/mountains and much more planned. At the moment it looks mainly empty down south of the SSP continent and I wonder what the lab has planned for them.

Hopefully Linden Lab will announce something about these SSP regions soon. I would expect we will hear news before the end of Q1 2019 or possibly at the latest in Q2 2019.

The new forum site called VirtualVerse One has been up and running for a few weeks now. There are active discussions going on everyday on the Forum list featuring a great range of topics from virtual worlds, Second Life, OpenSim, Sansar, Gaming, TV & Films to Scripting and much more. 

So far on the new forums there have been 463 threads, 6, 836 messages and over 390 members. It’s a great resource for the latest news, buzz and statistics.

SLUniverse Moving To A New Site Called VirtualVerse


SLUniverse Is Closing Down Soon

SLUniverse

Cristiano the owner of the well popular SLUniverse has announced it will be closing down in the next few weeks after recent issues. The SLUniverse Forums will become archived (read-only) and could be unavailable for some time after the closure.

SLU has a been a great source for the latest news in recent years for me. It’s sad to see it go but at least it’s still going on a different way. I joined SLU back in 2010 and I have enjoyed being part of this community.

SLUniverse Posts Milestones 

Cristiano mentions the following about the closure and the new site going forward…

So a lot has happened in the past 24 hours. I nearly lost 2.4 million posts and obliterated SLU, got them back, perhaps may have cried a little, then made some decisions about what to do about SLU.

I detailed what I was going through my mind in this post, so I won’t repeat it. However, since writing that, I made some rapid decisions that are already in motion.

First of all, I am launching a new site – VirtualVerse, which expands the scope of SLU to all things related to virtual worlds, whether it is Second Life, Sansar, other VR worlds that are gaining in popularity, or game related worlds like MMOs and open world games. I’ve wanted to become less SL centric, but it has been hard to do that with SL as part of the name.

The SLU forums will be closing within the next few weeks, depending on how long the transition takes. These forums will be archived – they may be unavailable for little while but will come back as a read only forum.

The new site domain is VirtualVerse.one – http://www.virtualverse.one

VirtualVerse 

The good news is that SLUniverse is still going to live on but just in a different format on a new site called VirtualVerse which still includes all things Second Life, Sansar, Virtual Worlds and VR etc.

The new forums will be using Xenforo forum software and not the existing vBulletin forum software. It fully supports mobiles which is great. The forums have a light and dark theme to pick from at the moment.

VirtualVerse

What do you think about this transition from SLUniverse to VirtualVerse ?
