New SL Sims In Past Week Thread Reaches 100 pages on SLUniverse Forums


100 pages milestone

On 1st July 2018 the most popular New SL Sims In past week thread reached 100 pages on SLUniverse Forums for the first time. Tyche Shepherd started the forum thread way back on 23rd March 2008 and it’s been actively running since then.

It’s definitely been the best source for updated Second Life statistics and much more. It’s been interesting to see weekly reports on new sims being added, sim renames, breakdown of server class and sims that have left the grid,

Congratulations Tyche all the hard work you’ve done over the years to keep the Second Life community updated on the grid numbers.

Here are the latest grid numbers as of 1st July 2018:

A large number of ACS RFL regions coming online helped keep net losses in regions to 3
Tomorrow the new land prices take effect so we’ll see if there is any significant uptake next week

Total number of Main Grid regions is now 23220 ( 15985 private estates & 7235 Linden owned)
103 new regions were added and 10 returned to the grid, with 117 regions removed (54 were renamed and 1 came and went since last report)

Adult rated regions were up by 13 to 5728 (24.7% of the grid) while General rated increased by 7 to 2893 (12.5%)

Second Life Private Estates Net Losses Was Lower During 2017


Weekly net change in private estates for 2017

It’s been another bumpy ride for private estates in Second Life during 2017 but according to the latest update by Tyche Shepherd the Second Life grid lost 677 private estate regions in total which is a 4.0 loss in 52 weeks. Back In 2016 the net loss was much higher standing at 992 private estates lost. Back in 2015 the net loss was 819 (4.4% loss).

The good news from this is that the weekly net loss change in private estates has slightly dropped since 2015 but it’s still high though. There hasn’t been a lot of positive net growth for private estates in Second Life since then either as you can see from the graph above. It would be nice to see more positive region growth during 2018 in Second Life.

End of 2017 Second Life Regions Update 

  • Total Main Grid regions – 23, 332
  • Total Private Estates – 16, 106
  • Total Linden Owned – 7, 226

Second Life Grid Statistics – September 2017 Update


Historical Daily Concurrency Since December 2009

These are latest Second Life Grid Statistics for September 2017 from the Second Life Grid Survey run by Tyche Shepherd.

The Second Life Grid Survey is by far the best source for daily Second Life grid statistics to check out. You can check out the latest region database numbers, useful economic metrics and much more.

I pointed out in my last Second Life Grid Statistics made back in early July 2017 that the grid saw a tiny amount of region growth from Private Estates during the first half of 2017. However the total amount of Main Grid regions has been dropping throughout 2017.

Since July 2017 Private Estates and even Linden Owned regions have declined down hill. Personally I don’t think the launch of Sansar Creator Beta effected the grid numbers or had any sort of big impact that some were guessing was going to happen.
