In this episode, we paid the second of two visits to the Second Life 16th Community Birthday Celebration, or SL16B for short.
We visited some of the major Mole-built installations, such as the Welcome Area, the Main Stage and the Tapestry of Time. In addition we checked out the latest in Linden Homes – the campers and trailers.
These will be set out as part of the new (and rapidly growing) continent for new Linden Homes, but they have a very different landscape setting from the new houseboats and traditional homes. These have a more rustic, mountainous setting with more of a vacation feel and – on the individual 512 plots, the accommodation itself takes up far less space. Patch Linden told me that the idea was to encourage residents to create more outdoor activities – barbecues and campfires, as well as outdoor sports. And there will be lakes for boating … swimming … maybe fishing?
We also visit some resident builds, including a botanical laboratory in space with a mystery story of its own (yes, it’s another great Loki Eliot build!). Then DNA Café, because of course, following the 1950s theme, the 1950s was the decade when the secrets of DNA were first discovered by Crick, Watson, Franklin and Wilkins.
There’s the fascinating Four Bridges Project which, for SL16B, shares the story of Dooky Chase’s Restaurant. And we also visit a miniature replica of the UN Building created for the SL Newser team by Silvia Ametz, which is a very clever optical illusion! Finally, we explore a world of dragons and tinies, and catch up with the latest from the Isle of Wyrms – but sadly no dragon raids on a giant cake this year!
