EOTB: April 2024 Mobile Viewer Update

 
 A few days ago, Linden Lab announced it had published new versions of it's mobile viewer, for both Android and IOS. Among the improvements, avatars that used a deformer for their shape and didn't load correctly in earlier versions should show properly now.

New Android and iOS Alpha builds were published Wednesday, April 3rd.

We’ve been working hard for the last two months and are excited to share some major steps forward for the mobile client -- correctly displaying avatars and teleport improvements have been at the top of the list.

If your avatar depends on an avatar shape deformer, you should immediately notice the changes to avatar rendering! Avatars that didn’t render at all before, or didn’t look the way you intended, now render correctly.


 
Also mentioned was improved teleporting, less likely to get stuck on the loading screen, And if you're in a place with music streaming, you'll be able to use more normal controls to start or stop it.
 
Teleports are also greatly improved – no more getting stuck on a loading screen! If you’re on a parcel with streaming audio, you’ll now be able to use standard audio controls to stop/start and change the volume (tap main menu > tap the audio metadata at the bottom of the screen).  We also found and fixed some issues with the order of group chat messages.
 
Currently, the mobile viewer remains in a "private alpha" status, with access limited to Premium Plus residents, who need to apply to be on the list to use it.

Disney Tribute "Magicland" About to Close

 
 
 Some sad news for Disney fans in Second Life. Two days ago on Tuesday April 9, the owners of Magicland Park, a tribute to Disneyland, announced the place would soon be closing. 

Every good thing comes to an end and it's unfortunately time for us to say goodbye to Magicland Park. THANK YOU to everyone who has supported us over the last 15 years. This has been an amazing incredible journey that we were fortunate to be able to share with all of you. Magicland Park was a labor of love and we enjoyed this journey we were on.

 It was with a heavy heart that we came to this decision, but our lives have moved us into a different direction.

 We hope that you enjoyed the moments you had here with us on this amazing journey. Magicland Park's last day of operation will be Sunday, April 14, 2024. So grab your friends and family, come on down and take a last spin on the teacups or a final trip back through time on the Carousel of Progress. We have our favorite attractions and know that you do too.

Thank you for all your support and encouragement over all these years.
 
So there are just a few more days for visitors to come by. Besides walking around, one can check out the rides. There's a "Star Tours" attraction in which riders go on a ship supposedly piloted by R2D2. There's the "Captain EO" ride which is around a Michael Jackson music video. There's the "Carousel of Progress" which shows how households have progressed through the 20th century. And more. 

Once again, the last day the park will be scheduled to be up is Sunday April 14.

Veterans Isle Raises Over 115,000 Lindens at Bennefit

 
 
 On Sunday April 7, Veterans Isle had it's monthly fundraising concert. The event, which took place high above the sim, was to benefit the Homes For Our Troops charity. The benefit ran for four hours from 12 to 4PM SL time. It was organized in part by SL musician Frets Nirvana.
 
Today is the day of our monthly benefit for Homes For Our Troops folks ...come out for a great afternoon of music for a great cause. 
 
DJ Zack (Zack221 Filler) started things up at Noon SL time with his selection of tunes. At 1PM SL time, it was Nina Rose Setner's turn on stage. Frets himself started up his guitar at 2PM. Last but not least was Roxy Chronotis, who at 3PM started playing for the final hour. 
 
As the performers did their music, the audience danced away, donating Lindens to two house-shaped kiosks on either side of the stage, "Thanks for the kind donation for Homes For Our Troops, rest assured your donation will go directly to HFOT to help our severely injured veterans." There were also people matching larger donations, "Someone put 250 linden in that left kiosk and I will match it. ... Someone put 150 in right kiosk ...I will put in 350 in right kiosk."

At the end of the event, a total of 115,060 Linden dollars had been raised in both kiosks.

VWBPE - Virtual Worlds Education Roundtable

 
The Virtual Worlds Best Practices in Education conference took place from Thursday March 14 to March 16. But not everyone could be there, and some who were could see only a little. But there were smaller events after the conference was officially over. One was a "roundtable" on Thursday March 21. Editor Bixyl Shuftan happened to be available, and dropped by.

SL21B Theme Chosen, Lab Announces Applications For Exhibitors Being Accepted

 
 

This year’s Birthday theme is Elements. This theme invites us to explore the fundamental components that make up our vast virtual landscape and the diverse communities within it. From the fiery passion of creators and artists to the fluid adaptability of our social environments, from the solid bonds within our communities to the fresh breezes of innovation that propel us forward, "Elements" is a celebration of the core forces that shape our experiences in Second Life.

As in the past few SLB events, exhibits are not required to be in theme. There will also be a separate adult-themed exhibition area apart from the main general-audience rated area. In the application form exhibitors need to fill out, it was stated exhibits cannot be commercial, "this is a party, not a mall or sales fair," gifts were okay, tip jars are not, bots are not allowed, political themes and what the Lab considered "hate material" are not allowed, and more. 

Applications need to be turned in by Sunday May 12. The event itself lasts from June 21st to July 21st, a full month of "fun-filled days of live music, performances, shopping, and amazing community exhibits!"

Stay tuned for more details.

Reader Submitted: April Fool At Club Cutlass

 
 
 Pictures from Rita Mariner (top two) and Cynthia Farshore (second two). At the party at Club Cutlass on Wednesday April 3, there was a surprise for community leader Rita Mariner and the others. The club had been painted pink.
 

 April Fool's Day might have been Monday, but for the club, it had to wait a couple of days.
 

 Rita remarked, "I see someone was ill, at cutlass, they spilled 'pepto bismol' everywhere," then gagged at the color.
 

 Cynthia's response was to say the movie at Feral Theater on Sunday would be Operation Petticoat. 
 
Club Cutlass is at Sunweaver Bay (114/117/757), and has events Wednesday, Fridays, and Saturdays 6 to 8PM. SL time.

EOTB: Linden Lab Lowers Weight of Mesh, Increasing Land Impact Limit

 
 Some good news for those who like to get the most of what their Second Life land can hold. Yesterday, Tuesday April 2, Linden Lab announced it had lowered the "download weight" of mesh items by fifteen percent, which indirectly increases the Land Impact allowance of sims.

As promised in our PBR Materials announcement last year -- as of this morning’s Second Life server grid roll, we have increased the allowance of Land Impact by lowering mesh Download Weight by 15% for all of Second Life! Since much of Second Life today consists of mesh content, anyone who owns or rents land will see more land impact available on their parcels. 

To see if an item's weight has changed, right click and select "Edit" on it, then check the "More Info" link on the popup (illustration on left).

Breaking News: PBR Mirror Bug Results in Mirrors Breaking, Seven Days of Bad Luck

 Update: April Fool's!
 
Linden Lab just announced there's a glitch in the PBR (Physical Based Rendering) code that affects mirrors in Second Life. Part of the glitch is that bumping into mirrors, touching them with an object, or dropping a mirror onto the ground can result in them breaking. 
 
And when the mirrors break, the person who caused it will go through a number of glitches, such as trouble rezzing, teleporting failures, crashing at sim crossings, difficulties in shopping at Marketplace, and more, for a period of several days. 
 
Supposedly for most involved, the period of time is seven days. Then the issues all clear up.

Wedcot Center Is Back

 
 

Disney Epcot tribute - Celebrate the season with Nightmare Before Christmas, and Haunted Mansion Holiday! Festival of the Holidays, Spaceship Earth, Test Track, with access to mini golf.

The place is still under Trevor Sleydon and is still in the Real Dreams sim. A look at the park's group showed no announcement's in the past month, so it's safe to assume the place came back before the first of the month. The place isn't quite perfect. The "Spaceship Earth" attraction isn't quite working. But some things such as the monorail are.

RFL Sunbeamers: "Bid Me Purple"

 
 
The Relay for Life's Sunbeamer team has another "Bid Me" fundraiser going. Liska has joined Bixyl and Charlee Shuftan in putting her appearance on the line with her "Bid Me Purple"

Like the first Bid Me, this fundraiser is taking place at Club Cutlass in Sunweaver Bay (114/117/757), in the room behind the dance floor. Like other Bid Me events, there are two kiosks. To keep Liska a red fox, donate to the default one on the left. To Bid Liska Purple, donate to the kiosk on the right. For every 3000 Linden dollars, rounded down, assuming the change kiosk is higher than the default one, Liska will be purple for a week. A total of 5999 Lindens would mean one week. 6000 L would mean two weeks.

The event ends on Sunday April 21, at which the totals will be made final. The bids are continuing for the other fundraiser "Bid Us Squirrels."
 
So come and show Liska a "grape" time.

In Passing: Arabella Cinquetti, Kei Haru Paws


Sadly, just as death is a part of life, there comes a day when residents of this virtual world go on to "Third Life." And the Newser recently heard about two residents who sadly met their end.
 
A reliable source recently told the Newser that Arabella Cinquetti, the owner of Lightening Video, had recently passed away. She had gotten the news via a notecard next to her store.

It is with sad news that I share with you all the passing of Arabella Cinquetti, owner of Lightening Video. Ara passes awat surrounded by family. She had been sick for a long time, but her heart couldn't take it any more. She will be missed here in Second Life.
 
The store and the sim were closed on March 15. As to what this means for the store's videos, the servers remain up, but only for a little longer. They are due to close on April 10. For theaters and home theaters with her products, it is unclear what will happen. They may no longer work, or continue to do so until they eventually break. 

*  *  *  *  *

The Newser was also informed Kei Haru Paws (dante184) had passed away. The cause of death was cancer. He was 31 years old.

*  *  *  *  *

Earlier this month, the Newser reported on the passing of Sylys Sable. He would have a memorial service done in real life, a video of which was made available (click here).

*  *  *  *  *

While not a Second Life resident, Draxtor Despress mentioned the passing of someone who had been on SL media. He recently stated that science-fiction writer Vernor Vinge had passed away. Vinge had appeared on Drax's radio show "The Drax Files" in March 2016 to discuss his sci-fi novel "Rainbow's End," in which cyperspace and virtual reality figure prominently.

On Sunday, March, 24 at Noon SL time, members of the Relay for Life's Sunbeamer team held a meeting inworld. The meeting, headed by team captain Rita Mariner, was about reminding people of upcoming events, notably the annual Air Show, on Saturday May the 4rth (which got a couple 'May the Fourth be with you' jokes), and other events such as participating in the Relaystock and the Ren-Faire. We also talked about other possibilities for events.

Angels Beach Land Rentals

 
 
At the Angels Beach Land Rental Agency, you can find a great new home in Second Life. With many sims to choose from, in the Sunweaver Estates, Hidden Valley, and Purrfection, you can choose from a variety of environments.

We offer places with friendly and interesting neighbors. Some places have a tropical island look, others more temperate. Some of the sims have access to enough water to boat around in. And there are plans later on for an open water sim for even more water activities. The sims are home to a number of quality clubs, such as Cutlass, Zero Gravity, Xanadu, the BBBC, and the Happy Vixen Beach Club. In one sim alone there are two quality clubs that work together so there is no lag from them. There are also some small shopping areas available.

The sims range from Mature to Adult, but the purpose of the adult rating is for a relaxed atmosphere in which couples can relax. The places do not allow for harassment, and while there are vendors that cater to mature tastes they are discreet about it. Spaces available range from small plots to a full homestead that will rent out for only $30,000L's per month. Most of the sims break the parcels down into 512 Sqm parcels and and most have a sliding rent scale, so the more you rent the cheaper it gets. Our prices are VERY competitive here in Second Life.

And if you bring a friend to an Angels Beach area, you get more than just a good neighbor. Anyone that refers a renter to us and they rent land, they will receive 10% of the first months rent. And if someone you know needs help renting out land on his/her sim, bring them to us. Renters who bring in a sim owner needing administration, we will give 10% of our first check.

To learn more, please contact Nydia Tungsten, Brandi Streusel, Jasmine Dawn (Jasmine Knickers), or Matoazma Kazyanenko.

"We pride ourselves on on not just renting land but renting our customers the land you want. We listen to what you tell us on what you are looking for."
