The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we visit Burn2 and celebrate the life and work of Ladyslipper Constantine – is now on the web!

Burn 2 is the inworld realisation of the famous Burning Man Festival held annually in the Nevada desert. We look at some of the amazing art of display, taking a balloon trip around the site, seeing the famous Burning of the Man and the Burning of the Temple, and talk to Duna Gant and iSkye Silverweb, who were both centrally involved in Burn2 this year.

We also remember Ladyslipper Constantine, a dedicated Burner and a keen Lamplighter at Burn2 events, who died recently. Saffia filmed a special Celebration of her life and work as a volunteer for numerous organisations and events in Second Life; an extract from this is shown in the episode, but you can also watch the full Celebration here:

It all makes for a very special show!

The new episode of Designing Worlds –a very special story for Halloween – is now on the web!

Written by Judith Cullen (in Second Life Caledonia Skytower of the Seanchai Library), it’s read by Caledonia herself and Corwyn Allen, together with Saffia and Elrik. With haunting photographs by Wildstar Beaumont, this is a real Halloween treat from us to all our viewers.

dw-special-2016-11-3_017The Designing Worlds special – where Patch Linden reveals the exciting news about the increase in prim allocation – is now available on the web.

Patch supplied a breakdown of how the new pricing structure would work, and also discussed the ways in which created could use the new land impact to improve mesh.

Prim increases

Prim increases

All the upgrades in prim limits will be automatic – with no cost. Mainland regions (including Linden Homes) are upgrading immediately. Private estates will be upgrading in the next couple of the months (once the Lab have assessed the effect on the mainland).

But the really exciting news that came out on the show was that of private island owners want to, they will be able to upgrade their prim limit to 30,000 by paying a one time upgrade fee of $US30 on a region, followed by a monthly payment of US$30. This seems quite a bargain for double the prims!

After the show, Patch and Saffia discussed the changes, with questions coming from the audience. Pantera Północy very kindly filmed this.

 

 

 

 

Join us today, Thursday 3rd November at 2pm SLT for a special episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams.

Patch Linden will be joining us, and there’ll be an opportunity to discuss the issues raised in the show with him afterwards.

And if you’re wondering what it’s about … you may find a clue here

And we also have news of a special show coming this Thursday, November 3rd at 2pm – with discussion of an announcement from the Lab that will impact all our Second Lives!

And Patch Linden will be in the Designing Worlds studio after the show on Thursday to discuss the announcement.

The new episode of the new season of Designing Worlds –as we explore three different stunning locations – each with a very individual take on Halloween – is now on the web – and now we’ll tell you how to get there!

Our first destination offers a collection of beautifully constructed Halloween locations, followed by the Fright Ride to end all Fright Rides! Yes, it’s the special Linden Halloween experience, accessed from the Portal Parks and created by Patch Linden and those amazingly clever Moles – some of whom pop up on the show!

You can find the Linden Halloween Experience (with lots of free gifts) here.

Then our second location is a beautifully dark re-interpretation of a classic children’s tale – Neverland. It’s been created by Tymus Tenk and Truck Meredith for their gorgeous Calas Galadhon estate, and Ty says it’s his first venture into major fantasy. It’s gorgeous, with little sinister touches, located over two regions. Do go and explore – but perhaps you don’t want to enquire too deeply into what happened to the Lost Boys!

Start your exploration with a stunning boat ride here – although you’ll need to carry on on foot is you want to reach the final destination – the ballroom!

And our third and final location is a stunning region that draws on a wide variety of horror tropes – can you spot them all?

It’s the Ironwood Hills – a a beautifully spooky region that is available for exploration throughout the year, but currently with some special Halloween touches.
