New screenshot of the Project Sansar Login Page

I’m sooo glad to see a new picture for Sansar – the other one was getting a bit boring. 🙂

On Friday 18th September 2015 from 6pm to 8pm PDT there will be a special Project Sansar Preview Workshop going on at the headquarters of Linden Lab in San Francisco. This event will allow the early users to preview Project Sansar for the first time.

This interactive virtual reality workshop will provide a hands-on preview of the new 3D virtual experience platform, code-named Project Sansar, being developed by Linden Lab, the makers of the popular virtual world Second Life. This new platform will enable people to virtually walk through 3D

At the moment Project Sansar is in the closed Alpha phrase with early users under heavy NDA. I am not apart of the closed alpha yet but i’m pretty much looking forward to the launch of the new generation platform next year.

There is a new screenshot of the Project Sansar login page that I found on Echt Virtuell’s blog …

Linden Lab are transitioning to a new payment system

If you haven’t updated your payment information yet, you should do it soon to avoid interruptions in your services. I updated mine today!!

Daniel Voyager

Linden Lab have announced this week that Second Life is transitioning to a new payments processor for credit cards and that they want you to update your Second Life Payment Info today.

The lab mentions in the blog post that you may notice small authorization charges made to the credit card linked with your account. “These charges are made to confirm the validity of the billing information on file and will be automatically voided by your bank or credit card issuer.”

It’s not known yet when the new payment system will be completed but this is a good time to update your Second Life info.

The blog post explains more…

Second Life is transitioning to a new payments processor for credit cards. If you use a credit card for Second Life payments and have not added or updated your billing information since July 7, 2015, we strongly encourage you to re-enter…

Article gives us a new glimpse of Sansar

Interesting tidbits about Sansar continue to dribble out . . .

Jo Yardley's Second Life

Today a nice article about Sansar, the next virtual world Linden Lab is building revealed a few new details.

The article was published on WDSU, a NBC-affiliated television station located in New Orleans and CNN Money.

A few interesting things were mentioned so I thought I’d share them here.

Think of it as the YouTube of the virtual world — an entry point for anyone who wants to build a VR experience without investing a ton of time and money.

I think this is a rather brilliant way of describing Sansar, or any kind of user created virtual world.
I prefer it to the WordPress comparison made before.
I also think this is the way to sell Sansar to the world; this is the entry point for anyone interested in creating their own VR experience, just like Youtube has brought millions to the world of making this new kind of…

IP Replacement Update

A week or so ago, I logged in to find my DQ chat blowing up with cries of horror from other dancers.

LL had IP replaced tons of animations (with no warning to most of us).

I happen to save all my animations in boxes, which I leave at my LL home.  So, I went through my inventory to see if I could figure out what was missing, and replaced it.

(This process is a LOT faster if you box your animations by creator.  I had stopped doing that – I’m going to have to go back to that!)

Everything worked great – until the next day, when I logged in and found it all IP replaced again.

Several of the feeds I read said that 1) it was a LL error that would be fixed and 2) you could get replacement animations from the vendors.

So, I went around to the various vendors and had my missing items redelivered.

The next day, when I logged in, the redelivered items had been IP replaced as well.

Argh.

So, I left the IP replacements sitting in my inventory (after reading that LL would indeed be replacing them with my honestly purchased content).  If you delete the IP replacements, then the computer doesn’t know that you are missing those items and that you need them replaced.

Then I proceeded to ignore the animations for a week or so.

Yesterday, when I logged in and was sorting through the piles of advent stuff, I happened to notice that some of my IP replaced items had indeed been replaced with the actual working animations.

So, I went back through my inventory, looking for animations I knew had been IP replaced in error, and sure enough, they were all back, safe and sound.

Yay!

If you haven’t done so already, check your inventory and see if your missing items have been returned.
