Second Life SL6B – Now We Are Six

With apologies of AA Milne of course 😉

So, Second Life has reached its 6th birthday and once more the residents have come together to provide most of the content. I was invited to the press preview and managed to spend 4 almost lag free hours roving my camera over the builds.

It actually the first time I’ve managed to have a look at the birthday sims, in previous years either I’ve got in and got trapped in the lag warp ( got trapped under a bridge at a sim border!) or could never manage to tp in.

The theme this year is the future of virtual worlds. I must say that had I not known that I would have wondered.

The visual highlights were Brunswick Warburtons piece (ok, didn’t grab names or slurls, my bad) but here’s the youtube taster for it

a rather nice pink garden,

a garden where you can be eaten by a venus flytrap (!) although this pic is me sitting on some kind of grasshopper munching on a leaf.

the snails (check out the neon effects and the fluttering eyelashes)

The city of tomorrow (when I first read the sign I thought it said cafe of tomorrow and got all excited lol)

Once you get into the main customer builds you may need to make sure that you twiddle with your environment settings.  Night doesn’t do the builds justice.

If you want to see the rest of my pictures, they’re on my SL event flickr stream here.  If you do decide to go along for a look, make sure you wear your most low lag clothing and ditch most of the huds.  If past years are anything to go by it will be a lagfest and anything you can do to reduce it will make it easier for you to get in and get around.
