The SL17B Water regions explanation


On 24th June Patch Linden on the Second Life forums posted the reasons for why there are ten SL17B Water regions surrounding the core SL17B regions. Apparently the main reason for them is that it’s “purely for decor and aesthetic purposes“. The lab felt “the entire SLB continent looked better not having things fall off into a void“.

He goes on to say “so we gave everything natural shorelines and such which meant extending in to the surrounding water regions this year. They serve no other purpose and are not usable for anything else because they are running on openspaces“.

I have to say this is pretty disappointing to hear this as this is a big opportunity missed for like a SL17B sailing event or perhaps spreading the new theme of Linden homes around the core regions. I’m sure the water regions could of been used better somehow. It’s interesting that these water regions are running on openspaces though.

Here is the full explanation from Patch…

They are there purely for decor and aesthetic purposes.  When we built out the core regions, we used as much space as possible and in many areas right up to the region edges.  We felt the entire SLB continent looks better not having things fall off into a void.  So we gave everything natural shorelines and such which meant extending in to the surrounding water regions this year.  They serve no other purpose and are not usable for anything else because they are running on openspaces.

Hopefully next year for SL18B there will be more regions to explore and more demo regions. 

SL17B Water regions can be seen around the outside of the core regions
