The SL Developer’s Corner is my place in the virtual world “Second Life”, where i experiment and tinker with the features of this platform. I try to publish my experiences and often also include the source code of the scripts on this site. Other posting related to Second life can be also found on Happy Coding 2nd-life section.

A new beginning?


I haven't been to Second Life for couple of month. Why? I was really tired of it. I used SL primary for developing little and nifty things and to publish the source code in this blog. But there was nothing going forward in SL and a lot of companies and other people where leaving -- so I also left and even sold my nice home.
One week ago, I logged into Second Life again, because somehow I got motivated to develop new stuff. But in the end I closed the client after 15 minutes. 15 minutes where I noticed, that 90% of my landmarks had been gone, because the islands don't exist any longer. I don't know.

  • Who has the same experience?
  • Are you also tired of using Second Life?
  • Do you think that they will improve their system in the future?
  • Does it make sense to invest more time and maybe money into it?
I always liked to walk around and using the platform as a 3D developing environment, but now I don't know if Second Life has a future.

I know what you mean, I use to dedicate so much time to creating for companies in SL but many of them left. I feel it was mostly due to the poor economy. I haven't left SL though because as long as they have people that log on there is still a possibility for a future and I feel that SL needs skilled developers to continue creating great content. If you ever log back into SL and find yourself not sure on what to work on send me a IM my name is Fire914 Flaman.
