BAY CITY’S 7th “MOLE DAY” ANNOUNCED

Members of Linden Department of Public Works to be celebrated

BAY CITY, SL (22nd January, 2017) – Bay City will once again come together to celebrate the hardy Moles of the Linden Department of Public Works on the 4th of February. The event will be held in the Bay City Fairgrounds in North Channel. As in past years, the invitation is open to all Second Life® members to join in the fun.

This will be the 7th such event, set aside to show appreciation for The Moles and their many contributions to Bay City and the rest of the Second Life™ Grid.

Normally held on the same day as Groundhog Day, this year’s event will be observed two days later, taking advantage of the weekend. The event will feature a performance by DJ GoSpeed of KONA Stream at 11:00 a.m., followed by a live performance by Oblee (Obleoinkment Wrigglesworth) beginning at noon.

“Moles” are members of The Linden Department of Public Works (LDPW). The LDPW is a program focused on improvements related to the experience of living on, or visiting the Linden Mainland. The LDPW is a team of Resident builders, scriptwriters, and others to create new content on Linden Lab’s behalf and to the benefit of all. These Residents all have Second Life accounts with the last name “Mole.”

Moles build the infrastructure of Second Life: the public roads and railways, items in our coastal waterways and protected lands, and even larger scale projects like the Linden Homes regions, premium content and experiences, and much more.

Bay City is a mainland community, developed by Linden Lab® and home to the Bay City Alliance. The Bay City Alliance was founded in 2008 to promote the Bay City regions of Second Life and provide a venue for Bay City Residents and other interested parties to socialize and network. It is now the largest group for Residents of Bay City.

Press Release: Linden Lab announces that Blocksworld expands to iPhone & offers real money redemptions to creators


On 3rd March 2016 Linden Lab released a new press release announcing that Blocksworld has expanded to iPhone along with new offers using real money redemptions to creators. For those that use Blocksworld this is very good news because now there is an iPhone version to use. The lab will now be offering redemptions to eligible creators that use Blocksworld.

Apparently Blocksworld players have published more than 2.7 million creations along with more than 700, 000 player created models that are for sale in the marketplace. Soon Blocksworld creations will be available on the web which is worth mentioning.

About Blocksworld

“Blocksworld makes building games as easy as stacking blocks! Create dinosaurs, helicopters, alien spaceships and giant tarantulas. Design tanks made out of cheese and monsters made from trees. Make satellites and semis, cats, robots and robot cats – and then add behaviors and actions to bring your creations to life!”

See the full press release below!

2016-03-03

SAN FRANCISCO – March 3, 2016 – Linden Lab®, the creators of Second Life® and Project Sansar, today announced two significant milestones for Blocksworld®, the popular free build-and-play app for iPad: real money redemptions for eligible creators and an iPhone version.

Blocksworld makes it fun and easy for kids and adults to create unique 3D models, playable games, and interactive worlds using virtual blocks and drag-and-drop controls. Players can publish their creations for others around the world to enjoy, and they can sell the models they build in an in-app marketplace for Blocksworld coins. To date, Blocksworld players have published more than 2.7 million creations, and more than 700,000 player-created models are currently for sale in the marketplace.

The Blocksworld coins that creators earn can be used to purchase additional content within the app, including themed building sets and models. Now, eligible Blocksworld creators will also be able to redeem Blocksworld coins for real money.

“We believe people should be able to profit from their virtual creations, and we have a history of successfully enabling this,” said Ebbe Altberg, CEO of Linden Lab. “We’ve allowed redemptions with Second Life for many years, and last year alone, creators redeemed $60 million from the virtual economy. Blocksworld players have shown an incredible level of creativity, and we’re pleased to be able to reward that by now offering redemptions to eligible creators.”

Additionally, Blocksworld is now available for iPhone as well as iPad. Players will enjoy the same functionality on either platform, and in the near future, Blocksworld creations will also be playable on the Web. These expansions will make it even easier for players to share their favorite Blocksworld worlds for others to enjoy and will allow creators to reach even larger audiences.

About Linden Lab

Founded in 1999, Linden Lab is best known as the creator of Second Life®, the largest-ever 3D virtual world filled entirely by the creations of its users. In 2013, the company expanded its product portfolio with Blocksworld®, a lighthearted build-and-play system for kids and grownups alike. The company is currently developing a new platform for virtual experiences, code-named Project Sansar™, which will democratize VR as a creative medium.
