Wrap up Warm

It must be spring, it's snowing!

They say this every year, but maybe this time they are right.   The UK is bracing for what promises to be a return to winter this week, with the worst snowfall seen in the country in over five years.

Just about everywhere is going to receive a good 6 to 8 inches of snow over the next 24 hours.

There will never be a better excuse to get snowed-in and play Second Life until at least Thursday or Friday, so keep a beady eye on the forecasts, and make sure you have plenty of Armageddon-proof food in your cupboards.

So wrap up warm, get the kettle on and login to London City, where a cup of hot Bovril awaits you.

The Weekend in Video Review

It was another great weekend in London City.  We celebrated the Rock n Rolls years with The Jersey Boys Concert, the opening of our newest club, Edge! and the deployment of the London City weather system.

Enjoy the video.

London City Exclusive - Immersive Weather Experience

We have developed what we believe to be Second Life's first completely immersive weather system here in London City.

Traditional weather systems rely on the use of particles which invariably remain as grey unrezzed blocks swamping the local area for up to a minute, sometimes even longer and lack the finesse that is available via modern specular mapping.

The London City Immersive Weather Experience is extremely low lag (far lower than any particle system)  and uses a single multifaceted mesh prim to draw in the weather (be it rain or sunshine glistening on the pavement) in the wink of an eye, using photo realistic animated texturing, with support for the Advanced Lighting Model.

Seeing is believing so... You can check out this new system for yourself with scheduled showers lasting five minutes each at: 11.45am, 3.45pm, 7.45pm, 11.45pm (UK times) each day here:

As soon as we are completely happy with the performance of this new system, we will bring it to the Market Place.  For now, you can experience it exclusively in London City.
