August Bank Holiday in London City



You have to feel a bit sorry for the people in real life who deferred going to Notting Hill Carnival on sunny Sunday and decided wait until Bank Holiday Monday instead!   Traditional British Bank Holiday weather again.. Heavy rain, not letting up for a moment  and it has been going on all day here in real life London where we are based.

Luckily in the Virtual London that is London City in Second Life rain in our regions is at scheduled times, half an hour after sunrise courtesy of our bespoke Immersive Weather System. 

Enjoy this video of the Bank Holiday weekend in London City and keep an eye out for Billy using our exclusive Portal system halfway through the video to seamlessly move from London City(1) to London City3, part of the Experience Tools System.

Have a great day and don't get too off your face... I'll drink to that!

Jessie J Tribute Band on Saturday



 
The British singing sensation tribute to Jessie J is on Saturday.

Cornish singer/songwriter, Jessie J, born Jessie E in 1988, grew up and studied muzak at the Brit School where she penned the dead classy tune Do You Like it Dude? which made its way into the charts at Number 2.

After Jessie's number two, she followed up with a number one which she called Price Tag, then a debut album Who Are You in 2011.
The Party starts at 12pm SL (8pm UK) and the show is an hour later at 1pm SL.

In the words of Jessie J, "Be wiv us"

This event is sponsored by our partners, DX Exchange, Linden Dollars at Best Rates.

Regent's Bitter - Advanced Creator Tools




As proof of concept for Advanced Creator Experience Tools, there is a bottle of beer in the main hub of London City which you can drink automatically.

If you have already used one of the teleport portals in the estate, the permissions you granted were remembered and by clicking the bottle it will automatically attach it to your avatar and animate you. 

To dispose of the item, right click it and detach it (a relog also detaches the object) because it is temporary inventory only.

At no time does this become a part of your inventory.  This is to allow everyone to enjoy a multitude of various forthcoming experiences without ever adding clutter to your precious inventory folders.

If you have not granted Experience tool permissions to London City, clicking the beer bottle will ask for them and remember them.  You will need to touch the bottle a second time for it to attach as the first click serves to enrol you in Experience tools..

This permission is then remembered, so you can click the bottle again for another drink whenever you want one, but you can also use the portals without need to click yes on dialog boxes. 

One key fits all! So to enrol for all experiences in London City by using any of the new features.

We are a Beta Tester for Experience Tools by Linden Lab.  All our experiences are safe, programmed by me and Billy Arentire. We do not use third party scripters for Experiences and it is impossible for Experience Tools to access account information, money or personal information.    So get started today - click something!

Regent's Bitter - Enjoy it!

The Weekend in Video Review



Another scorching weekend here in the UK with temperatures in the upper 80's and touching 90F from time to time.   We were glad to have the pool and beach handy, even if we did have to imagine our real life selves submerged in the virtual water!

Enjoy the video the weekend events!

Vintage Footage Time!



London City is celebrating its fifth Birthday throughout August.

Enjoy this vintage footage shot around 2010 (we think) of Regent visiting the original London in Mephilo Tor before it became London City. 

You can see the original hub area as it was, the canal (yes we used to have one) and our expansion into Aelburt sim, which allowed for us to have up to another 40 visitors by staggering the districts over two regions.  Goodness was Mainland ever complicated!   Enjoy another trip down Amnesia Lane.

London City 5th Birthday



The original Soho Square in 2009
Join us throughout August as we celebrate five years of London City!

Five years ago, we opened Mainland London, which later became London City in Second Life.

It started on a small piece of land on the Mainland in a region called Mephilo Tor. It was just large enough for Soho Square, four shops and the Bar Soho club.

We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate that so many people wanted to get involved in the project very early on and we grew rapidly to a half region within 12 weeks of opening, by adding Regent's Park.

Within 6 months we had outgrown the confines of the Mainland region because there was no more space to acquire and we relocated by purchasing a private island region which became London City.


The original Regent's Park in 2010 
The regions London City2 and 3 were added within the first year and we were able to create the metropolis of London largely familiar to our visitors today. In 2013 we added our Seaside region, London Adult.

The London City Estate today
Throughout August, we hope you will join us for the 5th Birthday Celebrations in London City.  We are rereleasing some of the most popular initial freebies we created in a hunt and there will be weekly concerts and a carnival theme.

Thanks to your incredible support London City is not only the most popular London in Second Life, it is largely considered to be the ubiquitous London in Virtual Worlds and is Second Life's single most popular destination.

Our sincere thanks to the team many of whom have been with us since the very beginning, the merchants and visitors for making this possible.

Enjoy this video of our humble beginnings as Mainland London way back from 2009.
