Join Designing Worlds as we celebrate Thanksgiving with old friends – now on the web!

22 November 2017

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – when we meet up with some old friends for a special Thanksgiving show– is now on the web!

Saffia, Elrik and Aisling attend a beautiful Thanksgiving Dinner organised by Honey Heart and Aisling, and catch up with Honey herself, Kess Crystal and Victor Mornington.

Honey tells us about her new pasture pets, available at her store of ~Ladies Pleasure~ , while Kess has news of the new project from the Blogger and Vlogger Network – the BVuNiversity. And Victor Mornington (also known as the Assistant Maceholder of New Babbage) shares with us his other internet project – Vaping with Vic!

And we all talk about the aspects of Second Life that make us grateful this year … and what we are hoping for from Second Life.

Celebrating Thanksgiving

Designing Worlds explores Linden Endowment for the Arts installations – now on the web!

18 November 2017

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – when we explore some of the Artist in Residence regions of the Linden Endowment for the Arts (LEA) – is now on the web!

Artists in Residence at the LEA are holders of an LEA Land Grant. This is a six monthly program to distribute 20 regions (LEA10-LEA29) donated by Linden Lab. These regions are to be used to promote art and artistic endeavors in Second Life.

Full regions of virtual land are made available to in-world artists through an application process. The AiR Land Grants are held for six months, and artists are free to use that time to create, amend, develop and display their work. Application cycles are announced through various LEA channels – and we’re in the middle of an application process right now!

Go to http://lea-sl.org/form/lea-air-land-grant-application-round-fourteen to find out more (and if you would like to apply yourself).

OUTRAGE!!! by Rage Darkstone

Artists may be experienced and well-known in Second Life, or they could be new and exploring Second Life’s potential. On the show you’ll meet both artists who have held AiR grants before – and artists for whom this is their first AiR grant. And there’s a fascinating range of installations to seem, from The White Cliffs of Dover to a steampunk psychological mystery, from angular prim installations to an exploration of a project to promote world peace, from an examination of the avatar experience and narratives, to a visualisation of the experience of real life exile.

You can see the regions here:

Artists in Residence whose work appears on the show include:

Designing Worlds’ Halloween Special in Octoberville is now on the web!

31 October 2017

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – with a spooky tale in a very spooky location (Octoberville!) – is now on the web!

We start by talking to Cherub Spectre and Master Kaos, the owners of Octoberville, who tell us all about the wonderfully spooky – and hugely popular – region they create for one month every year to celebrate Halloween. We explore Octoberville and learn something of its history – with roots in the real world, as well as its developments in Second Life. And we find out all about the amazing community that has grown up around it.

There’s still time to visit as Octoberville will be open till 5th November!

In the second Part of the show, we have a spooky tale for Halloween (filmed largely in Octoberville). It’s the famous story by Washington Irving – The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, adapted especially for the show by Caledonia Skytower.

You can also view the Legend of Sleepy Hollow as a standalone tale here.

Enjoy – and have a Happy Halloween!

Designing Worlds explores Hope Village and RFL in Inworldz – now on the web!

29 October 2017

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – when we travel out of Second Life to visit the Inworldz grid, and discover non profit activities that are happening there – is now on the web!

Inworldz is one of the ‘walled garden’ alternative grids, which are based on the technology of Second Life, although many – like Inworldz – have developed their own alternatives to some of Second Life’s developments. But the ‘walled garden’ grids are different from the Open Grid and other associated grids like the Canada Grid, in that they don’t allow hypergridding – that is jumping from grid to grid.

Hope Village, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

In this show we look at some of the nonprofit communities in Inworldz, centred around Hope Island. We talk to Miss Eilidh McCullough and Bain Finch, and take a trip around the Hope Village community. And we also explore Relay for Life of Inworldz which was coming to its fruition the week we were over there.

Designing Worlds visits Inworldz and explores Hope Village and Inworldz’ own Relay for Life!

23 October 2017

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 16th October, for the new episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams, when we will be travelling out of Second Life to visit the Inworldz grid, and discover non profit activities that are happening there.

Inworldz is one of the ‘walled garden’ alternative grids, which are based on the technology of Second Life, although many – like Inworldz – have developed their own alternatives to some of Second Life’s developments. But the ‘walled garden’ grids are different from the Open Grid and other associated grids like the Canada Grid, in that they don’t allow hypergridding – that is jumping from grid to grid.

Hope Village, photographed by Wildstar Beaumont

The advantage of the walled garden grids is that they offer the ability for creators to sell their work, and a measure of protection from copyright theft, and also, usually, at a cheaper price for land than Second Life. The downside is that for these grids to be sustainable, they need to attract a certain level of creators and residents – and that can be hard. But Inworldz is a grid that has succeeded better than most, not just in attracting residents but – and this seems to be the secret of successful grids – in building communities. Tinies, dinkies and elves all have strong communities here – and there are opportunities for ordinary human avatars – and creators too!

Designing Worlds’ visit to the Riviera Estate and Funfair – now on the web!

14 October 2017

The latest episode of Designing Worlds – where we explore the beautiful Riviera Estate, and the amazing funfair that is a part of it – is now on the web!

With the escort of the owner, His Royal Majesty King Brick Haworth-Masters, we will be exploring his lovely house and grounds – but we’ll also be visiting the amazing funfair he hosts up in the sky – and trying out a few of the rides.

The estate is attached to the beautiful – and exclusive – Grove Country Club, and the proper entrance to the Estate is located at the gates there – leading to a gondola trip followed by a carriage ride to bring you to the house itself.

Both the house and the funfair are open to the public, as are the concerts in the grounds (one of which we are able to join).

Places to visit:
The Gates to the Estate: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Park%20Circle/162/243/28 (walk through and take the gondola across to the island)
The House: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Riviera%20Drive/154/156/51
The Concert Area: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Riviera%20Drive/80/65/22
The Funfair: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Machias%20Seal/140/222/2002 (walk through the turnstiles and catch the special ride to take you to the full funfair!)

All the Fun of the Fair!

Cake Against Cancer – best ever year!

13 October 2017

The totals are in, and Cake Against Cancer, our annual event for Macmillan Cancer Support and the Biggest Coffee Morning in the World, this year raised more than ever before, so that the final donation to the charity was £170!

That’s US$225 – which we think is a great total for selling virtual cakes (and, admittedly, a couple of real ones that Saffia sold in her office!).

You can see the total on our Just Giving page – we raised 118% of our target!

Thank you to everyone who baked (and supplied recipes), danced, partied and generally had a good time. Do comment below if you’ve made any of the cakes – did the recipes work for you?

And many, many thanks to the Second Life Cheerleaders and Lisa Tredwell who staged a wonderful event in support and sold cakes at their headquarters in Cheertopia!

Last Day of the ForMax event!

10 October 2017

The event to support Maxwell Graf and Lyyric Fei in the Apple Fall region closes at midnight SLT tonight (Tuesday 10th October).

There have been some great items on offer – such as the fun bubble car created by Culprit, the beatiful flowers by Kaerri, and the adorable raccoon by  Jian.

The raffle will be automatically drawn at Noon SLT, so now is the time to grab a few tickets to stand a chance of winning one of the awesome prizes.

The raffle for Max with prizes

After that, items will start to wind down after the raffle, so the sim is fully closed by midnight SLT. So make sure you don’t sleep (like the raccoon) and miss the end!
