New Linden Homes on Bellisseria

In this episode of Designing Worlds we visited the new continent of Bellisseria, and found out all about the new Linden Homes with the aid of Patch Linden and a gathering of Moles!

DW398 – New Linden Homes from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

In the first part, we take a look at the original Linden Homes, and talk about some of the problems they encountered – the cramped feel of the regions, the lack of surrounding space for each home, and the lack of a community feel.

Then we move to the first two types of Linden Home released – the traditional homes and the houseboats. We talk with Patch Linden about the ideas that have gone into their construction, and the way that community spaces have been developed, centering around activities and places to visit, within the community itself.

And, of course, we take time to explore some of the possibilities you have with the homes, easily changing the styles and redecorating at will!

In the most recent Designing Worlds, we’re looking at a new development in Second Life – Animesh! It allows the animation of mesh objects that are separate from an avatar, but with many of the same characteristics.

DW393 – Animesh from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

In the show, we ask what Animesh actually is, and Vir Linden, from Linden Lab, gives us an in-depth interview with detailed information about the whole animesh project, and answers creators’ questions. In addition, meet a selection of animesh creators including Carrie Tatsu, Aki Shichiroji and scripter Medhue Simoni.

American Cancer Society Memorial Garden

American Cancer Society Memorial Garden

In this week’s episode of Designing Worlds we look at a sadly all too real phenomenon: when people disappear from Second Life and – often – from real life too.

DW391 – Legacy from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

What legacy do they leave behind? And what steps should we be taking to protect our legacy – and make sure our friends understand what has happened?

We talk to Jo Yardley, who has written a fascinating article on this issue, and other people who have been affected too – both by people who have died, and people who have suddenly disappeared, sometimes with devastating consequences for those who knew them, worked with them, and loved them.

Guest on the show include Jo Yardley, KT Syakumi, Stevie Basevi, Kess Viiperi, and Adele Ward.

In this episode, brought to you from a special studio constructed for us by Eliza Weirwight of Patron, we take a look at some outstanding winter locations in Second Life.

DW388 – SL Winter Places 2018 from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

We talk to Eliza herself and look at some of her special seasonal products at the Patron store; we talk to Kess Viiperi about her winter landscaping vlogging (as she demonstrates how to create a wonderful wintry landscape of your own – you can see her decorating video in full here); and we meet up with Tymus Tenk of Calas Galadhon and take a detailed tour of their winter regions. You’ll be amazed at the changes since our last show there, when we visited for Halloween!
