On 2nd April 2021 Linden Lab updated the Second Life Status page in the Inworld Map Tiles Information Currently Unavailable section saying that they are continuing to work on a fix for the issue. It’s been six months now broken.
For most now in the community it’s been very frustrating not being able to see updated map tiles on the world map in Second Life. From what I am hearing from various sources this is turning out to be a complex issue.
There is some good news though as there are two alternatives to view the world map. New improvements are being made on a regular basis.
Still no ETA from Linden Lab on when we can expect a possible fix.
Update – We are continuing to work on a fix for this issue. We appreciate your continued patience!
