London City - Official Community Gateway




Almost Two years ago, London City, and Firestorm became the first of the next generation Official Community Gateways to come on-line.

Since then over 300,000 new residents have begun their journey in Second Life, via the portal operated by London City.

The gateway has the emphasis on quick-starting a resident by showing them the basics of walking, running, camera controls and jumping.  These are the bare bone essentials needed to begin their adventure, and if they decide for a more in-depth tutorial, they can take a tour of the full region and follow the examples - or - they can choose to jump right into the community region London City and meet other residents.

From there, our Support team will show them how to customize their avatar, dance, shop, create landmarks and search for places and events of interest.  For those who want to take it to another level, London City also offers building and scripting classes.

This video shows the kind of group events enjoyed by residents being born into London City Official Community Gateway.

London City Community Gateway News



Since the beginning of the year, London City Community Gateway has offered an in-depth tutorial showing many of the aspects of the Second Life Viewer.  The complete tutorial is great for people who want to have a broader understanding of game-play before embarking on their adventure, but we also recognize that many want to get involved and meet people straight away.

From today, we're pleased to include our brand new Quick-Start Initial Experience, for residents 'born' directly into London City.   The aim of this new portion of the gateway, is to have residents up and running and to teach them the basics quickly.  They can then choose to go on to the full tutorial, or immediately enter the community, with the option of visiting the in-depth tutorial at a later time.

We hope you will agree that this new layout, giving better choices for new residents, offers the best of both worlds.

London City Community Gateway goes Live






London City is pleased to announce that the New User Community Gateway is now on-line, with over 600 new residents born directly into London City since Friday evening.

New accounts will experience an orientation tutorial which demonstrates the essentials needed for the first hour in Second Life, then pass through into the original community region, London City.

London City has always offered help for New Residents including an extensive Freebie Shop, one-to-one training sessions and building lessons.  Taking this to another level with a dedicated Community Gateway in which they are able to hold classes and show more in-depth orientations, adds a very useful additional layer to the initial experience.

Help is on hand as always, with the London Support team, and you may well see a Linden presence throughout the weekend as they work to ensure that New Residents born to London City get the best possible first impression of Second Life.

London City thanks its community for being instrumental in making this Gateway a reality, and for being ambassadors in representing all the good things in Second Life.

London City Community Gateway






Second Life's London themed Community Gateway, "London City Gateway" is taking shape.

The Gateway aims to give new users the basic skills they need to enjoy their initial experience in Second Life.

New users creating accounts will be given the option to login directly to London City, so it is important to include as many useful tutorials as possible, without overwhelming a newcomer.

The 'Walk-Through' already covers how to move, walk, fly, communicate, dress avatars, use pose balls and join groups.



We are very fortunate that London City group memberships now total a quarter of a million residents and to that end we would like to draw upon your wealth of experience and invite your comments, suggestions and ideas for additional 'instructions' that should be included.






Please visit London City Community Gateway and imagine yourself as a brand new user. If you have a suggestion for something we should include as a basic but essential skill that a new user will need within the first hour of their Second Life, please drop a note card in-world to Billy Arentire.

At this point we are not seeking to demonstrate building skills as a part of the tour as this will be included in a dedicated area.

Thank you to all your suggestions so far.  Please keep them coming.

London City Gateway open for a PREVIEW



Whilst the building for London City Gateway continues, we are pleased to let you know that the initial phase of the completed building work will give a good flavour of what is yet to come in the Gateway in terms of  additional content, useful guides and free items.

The region is now open for Preview.. and by preview we mean that not everything is working yet, not all texturing is complete and there are a lot of things still to be set in their correct position.

If you would like to have a look around the London City Gateway region and see our progress so far visit: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/London%20City%20Gateway/183/85/24
