It is Second Life's 14th Birthday.  Each year a group of regions is pushed together to form an almighty arena of user-created content, to showcase the amazing wealth of talent that Second Life residents enjoy.

The Birthday celebrations begin today at 12pm SL time (8pm UK) and we hope you will visit London City at SL14B.

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

London City Gateway



New residents joining Second Life will soon be asked for their preferred location when initially joining the world.

We are proud to represent the UK choice and to offer the gateway for London via our new region, The London City Gateway.

Building work continues, but here is the first glimpse of London City Community Gateway..
