Second Life

6.3.6.535003
29 January 2020

Expansive online society, lived in and built by its participants.

Overview

Second Life is a 3D virtual world entirely built and owned by its residents. Since opening to the public in 2003, it has grown explosively, and today is inhabited by a total of 5,145,919 people from around the globe.

From the moment you enter the World you'll discover a vast digital continent, teeming with people, entertainment, experiences, and opportunity. Once you've explored a bit, perhaps you'll find a perfect parcel of land to build your house or business. You'll also be surrounded by the creations of your fellow residents. Because residents retain the rights to their digital creations, they can buy, sell, and trade with other residents.

The Marketplace currently supports millions of US dollars in monthly transactions. This commerce is handled with the in-world unit-of-trade, the Linden dollar, which can be converted to US dollars at several thriving online Linden Dollar exchanges.

Your first Basic account is FREE, and includes access to events, shopping, building, scripting - everything you can do in Second Life. After your first free Basic Account, each Additional Basic Account (known in-world as an "alt" account) costs a one-time fee of $9.95. A Premium Second Life account, starting at $9.95 a month, allows you to own land on which you can build, display, entertain, and live.

Interesting that Linden Labs dropped PPC support but still supparts Panther 10.3.9. Huh? Also, why is it that Blizzard can write a game (Warcraft) that runs smoothly on OS X but Linden Labs' effort with Second Life is barely functional. I'm glad I never got hooked on SL.

Reminds me of V-World on the Caprica TV series (60 years prior to Battlestar Galactica)! Although it is not half as good. :P

I just wanted to leave a comment and say I enjoy messing around with Secondlife at times i really don't use it on a regular basis, but it's fun to explore. I wanted to also say how impressed i am to say my retina macbook pro late 2013 13" does really well on the graphics with the iris graphics. So far no slow downs and great detail. it only starts to really show a noticeable slow down on ultra but it's not huge so i put it back down on high. it also depends on the environment it seems as to how graphics are effected. I'm not much of a gamer though, i work with video and other forms of media for the most part. I've tried second life on my 2005 eMac back in 2005 the radeon 9600 card wasn't too bad but it was certainly slower. my white macbook wasn't the best when i tried it as the intel graphics back then weren't a gaming card, now i have it on this retina MBP and i think this has been the best i've seen it. I also noticed the fan is well controlled too it runs when it has to then slows down to silent again.

I found the film interesting. If for no other reason then no one had an iPhone.

Dont think of this as a 'Game' think of it more as a chat room with user defined graphics. There are some reasonably well defined locations to explore such are the Eiffel tower but the graphics hardly zip along as everything is stored on the S/L servers even your own clothing, possibly why the developers call it a 'viewer' In busy regions the lag can become horrendous and if the region has 50 occupants im sorry it just wont let you in. If you have the time and patience its ok for a laugh but do expect some lag and random crashes.

Wow, can't believe this is still being developed. I hardly use it any more and when I do it's as vacant as a ghost town when I visit. I guess everybody's gone to Facebook.

I never understood the attraction in the first place. I don't have a life in the real world so why duplicate that in the cyberworld. LOL
