You may have seen Second Life creators selling images made with Midjourney, but what is it? Midjourney is a computer program that uses artificial intelligence to make pictures based on text prompts. At the moment, the bot on Discord is the only way to use Midjourney. I paid $10 a month to play around with the program. It’s a lot of fun to have AI make anything you can think of right away, but sometimes the results are weird.
Most of the images I’ve made are based on my Second Life avatar. I use a photo of my avatar as a reference, then I add a text prompt to try to make something more detailed than what I can do in Second Life or in photoshop.
Second Life just announced a new membership plan called Plus, which gives residents the right to own mainland and that’s it. Is it worth the money? I compare these new plans by only looking at the benefits that interest me, such as the land allowance, the stipend, and the perks that come with linden homes. I was shocked to find out that the Plus plan does not include a linden home, and the price is nearly equal to the Premium plan.
Hello from Ethereal City! I had a lot of fun here, and the whole region is a great backdrop for my photos today. I’ve noticed that I only have two styles these days: very casual (cardigans, sweaters, etc.) or “Sugar Baby Chic,” where I go all out and wear something sexy but still cute.
I wrote about how to sell Lindens almost ten years ago, but do you know how to buy Lindens? If you still click the Buy L$ button in the viewer to get money to spend, you should read this blog post to find out how to get the most Linden dollars for your money.
First, go to the L$ Exchange Settings in your SecondLife.com dashboard and change the Interface Mode from Basic -> to Advanced.
Hello from Zepeto world! This mobile virtual world is created by Naver, a South Korean company, and is immensely popular with over 300 million users. I had never heard of it before until a few days ago when I saw Truth Hawks promoted his brand Super Fun in Zepeto. You can now dress your avatar in even more Truth stuff in other worlds!
I decided to try Zepeto, and in just a few minutes, I had a cute avatar that looks like Gogo. Within 24 hours, I had invited several Second Life friends to join, taken photos, made videos, and even set up a social media account like Instagram.
One of my favorite things about Zepeto is that I can pose with friends even when they aren’t there. Zepeto has these things called Express with booths, which are pre-made templates for videos and photos that come with music and poses. You can go into a booth, add members (yourself and your friends), take a photo or video, and either upload it to your feed or download it to share it somewhere else. This only takes a few seconds, which is why I like Zepeto so much.
It’s like a mini-version of Second Life for your phone, and they do so many things right that I can see a lot of Second Life users and people who just like fun dress-up games playing this.
You can get the JuicyBomb – Autumn Skies EEP Settings on the Marketplace! These are Autumn Skies EEP Settings with six different color variations. I made the cloud texture so that you can change the color to create vibrant environments. Feel free to customize!
It feels so good to finally get into the Top 10 in the Bellisseria Trick or Treat event! Last year, I came in Top 35, but I thought that if I had just gotten a few more candies, I would have been in the Top 10. So, my goal for this year was to try to collect all of the candies by going to all of the homes. I got 283 candies on the first day, and by day 7, I had 771. I found out that some of the top 10 winners only had 700 candies, so I could have stopped looking last week. I didn’t want to lose again, so I kept looking and looking until the very last hours last night! In the end, I had hundreds more than I needed to win but I still wasn’t sure I had won until Derrick Linden sent me the bears! <3
Good morning from Evermore House on Aurelias! Why haven’t I ever been to this house before? It’s so eerie and beautiful, and sits all by itself on this deserted corner of the island. When I asked Sparkle about the reason the previous owners moved out of the house, she said that she had no idea either. I promise that as soon as I learn the real story behind what took place at Evermore House, I will post an update!
You’re cordially invited to the Evemores— forever more. The Evermore House was once home to the most notable family on Aurelias. The first Evermores arrived in the 17th century and established themselves on the island. John Evermore, his wife, and their daughter are the last known members of the Evermore family to have lived there. The house has been deserted for a very long time, and it now sits all by itself, patiently awaiting its next guests.
Hello from Lavender Bay, an Italian Tuscany-inspired region! I needed a break, so I went to this lovely region with its rolling hills and inviting courtyards.
Do you enjoy holding things as much as I do? I’m a sucker for anything I can hold while striking a lovely bento pose. I now only want items with built-in bento poses because the fingers look so much more natural. This adorable Littlep Wake Up (Cold Brew) set includes several items that can be held simultaneously, making it ideal for strolling around on my vacation.
Second Life makes a lot of effort to get users to upgrade to Premium Plus, but they keep falling short. I occasionally upgrade my alts to Plus in order to get the Linden Home concierge service, but none of the other features—not even the larger land holdings—interest me. I was immediately interested in reading today’s blog post on the new SpeedLight benefit for Plus members. Even though I don’t to use Second Life on my phone, it would be convenient to be able to send money, chat with friends, and perform some basic land administration.
What exactly is SpeedLight and do you need Premium Plus to use it? SpeedLight is a mobile viewer that is free to use. You don’t need Plus or Gold (which costs L$1,990 Lindens a month) unless you want to utilize some extra features like 3D World. So I thought to myself, if 3D World renders Second Life as good as the low graphics settings on a viewer, I would be okay with that.
