Sansar Open Beta opening “next week anyway” according to Oz Linden at TPV Meeting


Sansar Breaking News

At a recent Third Party Viewer meeting at 17 minutes / 12 seconds Oz Linden via voice chat in public said that Sansar Open Beta opening starts on Monday. He then quickly changed that seconds later by saying “next week anyway” which is rather interesting.

Oz Linden said that Second Life is not going away – not even a little bit. Yay! 🙂

If this news is correct then this is very exciting news for those interested in trying out the Sansar Open Beta finally after a long wait.

Next week will be most interesting to see if Sansar Open Beta will finally launch or if it gets delayed further into August or September. We will have to wait and see.

More updates soon..

New Sansar Creator Preview Video


This week a new promotional video of Sansar Creator Preview was uploaded on the official Sansar YouTube channel showing another sneak preview of Sansar.

The video runs for 1 minute and 38 seconds which is definitely worth watching if you interested in Sansar. “Ria shares her thoughts on this new platform and offers a sneak peek at “Little Giant,” one of the first experiences created with Sansar during the creator preview”.

Linden Lab have sent out even more invites to Second Life users in recent days according to various sources. Once you receive the Welcome to Sansar Creator Preview email, accept the invitation and then you are ready to get started with Sansar.

SL14B Press Day Preview


Yesterday the Second Life press had special access to preview the SL14B sims. The long wait is almost over because the SL14B Community Celebrations officially open to everyone at 12pm SLT today.

At first glance the SL14B regions look really impressive this year. There are 18 SL14B regions to visit and explore. There will be live performances, live DJ events, hunts, pod tours and so much more during the week ahead.

Second Life officially turns 14 years old on 23rd June 2017 and there will be grid wide celebrations.

The annual Second Life birthday is one of my top favourite events to attend. I’m always impressed by the amazing builds, events and great community atmosphere there is.

My first preview snapshots of SL14B.
