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!

London City now has Featured Destination Portals to offer residents the opportunity of visiting other recommended destinations in Second Life.

The Featured Destination Portals, will be used for events and stunning locations both inside and outside of the estate.

We are seeking well designed locations that enrich the Second Life experience with concepts that differ from those in London City.

So if you know of a location that everyone in Second Life should visit, please submit your suggestion using the Support Ticket option at the top of this page (or add a comment to this story) and be sure to include the Slurl of the destination and a brief summary of the region.

Today we have added the destinations: "Whimsy", a picturesque 6 region estate, "Kaboom" home of the Robot Sanatorium and "Another Somewhere", a landscaped and beautifully created habitat full of places to explore and "Camp Kawabata", a woodland area with canoes, log cabins and campfires and "Planetarium", a fully animated virtual encounter with the stars in our solar system. 

The destination in the portal changes every 30 seconds, so step through the portal when your chosen location is shown and be teleported instantly to explore a brand new location.

Advanced Creator Tools > Singularity Viewer



Experience Editor in Singularity
London City is working closely with our friends from the Singularity Viewer Development team on Linden Labs Experience Tools, to bring the Experience Permissions system to you as quickly as possible and to ensure that third party viewers can handle the new Experiences correctly and as efficiently as possible.

An initial Singularity Experience Editor (early development and not yet available publicly) is already functional and it will not be long until the full experience package is available to everyone.

For transparency, we would like to make everyone aware that from time to time, Singularity Dev will need to rez objects containing the Experience Keys, but only scripts created by us and only in the London City2 region.  All our scripts are safe.  Singularity developers working with us will be clearly listed within our content creators tab within the Experience tools search option.
