I went to SL19B to meet the Lindens! Patch Linden gave an exciting interview with hints about the upcoming Premium Plus membership, which will be available on June 23rd, 2022. At first glance, it appears that nearly all of the benefits will be doubled, but the cost will be TRIPLED. Premium Plus will be $29.99 per month or $249 USD/per year. For 30 days, the introductory price will be $24.99 per month.
Hello from Wind River! This Old West-inspired region is my favorite; it’s like stepping back in time. Today’s outfit is completely free, thanks to Alaskametro’s fantastic Summer Festival Vibes hunt. I like store-specific hunts so much better than grid-wide hunts because the items all match and it’s pretty easy to find the items.
Hello from Aurelias! I got such a good deal on my outfit and hair that I felt like a complete frugalista. The hair was $250L for a fatpack from Stealthic and the outfit is $50L from cheezu. You can look fantastic in Second Life without breaking your budget. I find it completely doable to live on just the premium membership stipend of $300L weekly. You don’t even have to look that hard for a sale, designers are all competing for your lindens.
My return to Second Life has been, overall, uncomplicated. I logged in, got addicted to Linden Homes, and of course, I shopped. I have to say that I am a bit disappointed in the fashion choices in Second Life: So-Many-Outfits-Look-Exactly-The-Same. I spent many an hour visiting the latest events attempting to find that perfect new outfit. Alas, 75% of the time, my event shopping resulted in disappointment. I don’t know if it’s the demos the designers decide to use or if the efforts are just – bad. The pattern continues – I teleport to the current “Event Du Jour,” and an advert catches my eye. With the flick of my mouse, I would click that demo prim faster than you could say “Lindens.” Then, excitedly I would port home to one of my, err, seven Linden Homes and gleefully try the demo, and more often than not, the demo unveiling would reveal a horrible plastic-looking shirt with no depth or a skirt that was just..sad. But…not the Skin featured in the plethora of events: Oh My…Not the Skin.
Hello from Aurelias! Today is the first day of the Easter Egg Hunt! Come hunt eggs hidden all over the region for goodies from your favorite brands and browse the Spring Market from April 10th to April 20th. We are hosting the first Easter Egg Hunt to commemorate the Aurelias region’s transition from Winter to Spring. We’re looking forward to having a good time and allowing visitors to explore Aurelias. While you’re on the region, join the Aurelias Events group; we’ll send out hints for the hunt in the coming days.
After months of discussions, Mark Zuckerberg and the Meta team have determined that Second Life is the true metaverse. They have now completed negotiations with Linden Lab for the acquisition of Second Life, and the transition is currently in the works.
“This transition will take place over the next few months, and we will do everything we can to make it as smooth as possible. Don’t be alarmed if you notice your legs disappearing; this is a new user function.”
Conquerors have amassed land and power on the battlefield throughout history. For the metaverse, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Meta, and Philip Rosedale, the founder of Linden Lab, will compete in a boxing match to see who can have the weirdest hair in the metaverse. In addition to getting the hairstyle, the winner will be able to decide whether or not avatars will have legs.
LeLutka is at Skin Fair with two new mesh heads, one each for male and female. I’m wearing the Milan mesh head, it’s a slight change from the LeLutka Kaya mesh head I’ve been wearing. I made a whole new shape to go with Milan, with a more toned face than Gogo normally sports.
Hello from Newbrooke! These new modern-style homes are available in 512 or 1024 sqm. I don’t love these homes, but I’m warming up to them! There’s a lot of potential here, especially if you like the modern aesthetics. Like previous themes, you can choose to have any Newbrooke home style on your land.
