We invite you to join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 21st December, for a seasonal episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams when we’ll be revisiting New Babbage for a whole new Christmas special.

The citizens of New Babbage are preparing for Christmas and a special carol concert.  But mysterious monsters are lurking out there on the streets …

What could possibly go wrong in New Babbage at Christmas?

What could possibly go wrong in New Babbage at Christmas?

We invite you to join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 14th December, for a seasonal episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams when we’ll be revisiting New Babbage in a new showing of the much-loved story of the Most Dangerous Book in New Babbage (kept under strict guard in a few Babbage libraries).

And, to make matters worse, there’s apparently a severe coal shortage in the steampunk city too!

So join us, at 2pm today, to unlock the true terror of Uncle Tingly’s Christmas Tales for New Babbage Young ‘Uns … if you dare.

ColeMarie has had a fascinating career, both inworld and on the wider web, and she talks to us about this, as well as demonstrating some of her beautiful particle effects – and explaining why the development of particle scripting in Second Life made her enthusiastic to return and start creating again.

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – the fascinating new project from the Firestorm team, their Community Gateway – is now on the web.

Firestorm, makers of the hugely popular Firestorm viewer, were given the opportunity to create their own new user experience – and they have certainly done a fantastic job over five whole regions.

We’re joined by Jessica Lyon, the head of Firestorm, and by two of the team working on the Gateway, Horseplay Yamauba and Flossy Andrew. Together we explore how the regions give basic instruction, and then encourage new residents to explore some of the pleasures of Second Life for themselves!

Outside the The Thanksgiving House

Outside the The Thanksgiving House

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 25th November, for Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams for a second chance to see a very special show to celebrate the creativity of Second life design!

Today’s Designing Worlds’ special Thanksgiving show was first shown in 2013, but it was such a great show that – as we were unable to film an episode for this week, this was the one we thought you’d like to see again!

Thanksgiving (and the US Thanksgiving happens this Thursday) is a time for giving thanks – and so in 2013 for our annual Thanksgiving show, we decided to give thanks for the amazing design work that is being carried out in mesh. To do this, we asked the team behind the group Mesh Creative to host our Thanksgiving Dinner, in a house specially created, landscaped and furnished for this very special occasion!

The Thanksgiving Dinner

We were joined by Loz Hyde of Meshworx, Cain Maven of Maven Homes and Quantum Luxury Designs, Maxwell Graf of Rustica, Lilith Heart of Heart Botanicals and Pamela Galli of La Galleria, while Samantha Ohrberg acted as cat herder!  Other designers whose work appears on the show include Froukje Hoorenbeeke of Dutchie, Domineax Prospero of The Domineaux Effect, Isla Gealach of Cheeky Pea, and Lilith and Dolly Heart of Heart Botanicals among others. And the walls are decorated with some beautiful Second Life Art.

There’s some fantastic creativity on display here, some interesting discussions – and many reasons to be thankful for the amazingly creative designers of Second Life! So … do join us at 2pm today.
