SL14B Officially Opens


At 12pm SLT today the SL14B regions officially opened to the public in Second Life after months of planning. The SL14B regions will now remain open until 3rd July 2017 so there is plenty of time to see everything.

Come over and enjoy the birthday celebrations today! 🙂

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.

SL14B regions have already arrived

In mid June 2017 Second Life will be celebrating it’s official 14th birthday and just recently 18 new SL14B regions arrived on the grid. Early preparations have already started behind the scenes for the birthday and it’s going to be interesting to see what the SL14B team/community comes up with this year.

No details have been released yet for SL14B important key dates, any open event positions or what the theme will be. I would imagine there will be announcements made within the next few months for those interested in participating in SL14B.
