Today is Mesh Day at SL9B. If you have any interest in mesh at all – be it as a builder, a designer a wearer or consumer – there’s a whole lot going on at the SL9B auditorium area for you, with things kicking-off at 11:00am SLT:
12:00 – Qarl Fizz (formerly Qarl Linden) will be discussing the resident-funded mesh parametric deformer project, designed to make mesh clothing more readily available to different-sized avatars
14:00 – A Panel Discussion with Maxwell Graf (Rustica) Froukje Hoorenbeek (Dutchie), Loz Hyde (Meshworx) and Cain Maven (Maven Homes) will be discussing their mesh creations – and possibly showing some examples of their work!
A Note to SL9B Exhibitors
Do you have an exhibit at SL9B that is all or partially mesh? If so, please let us know today! Drop a comment over at the SL9B Blog, and we’ll try to spotlight your work.
SL9B has five main stages for entertainment spread across the regions, all of which are in some way unique. Two in particular have caught my imagination: the Main and Lake stages, both of which I find totally captivating.
I’ve been gathering photos of each of them – and the other stages – for several days, and am rather pleased with some of the results, which are uploaded to my SL9B Flickr set and slideshow.
While my hardware prevents me from creating full in-world machinima, I did put some of the results together in a short video, which I hope captures the spirit of the stages.
Thank you to Donpatchy Dagostino for the beautiful Main Stage and SL9B steam express, to Kazuhiro Aridian for the amazing mesh Lake Stage, to Mikati Slade for the almost edible Cake Stage, and to KT Syakumi and the team for the DJ Egypt Stage and for the imaginative (and completely 11th hour!) Sunken Stage.
Gala: Celebrating SL’s Water-focused Communities
Gala is one of two water-themed regions at SL9B (the other being Frolic, the home of the Lake Stage, although Iwa and Dziewic are also technically water regions, being the home of the Main stage and its surroundings). Gala also featuresa live performance stage, the Sunken Stage, and is the place where you’ll find exhibits celebrating SL’s diverse water-focused communities.
Located towards the middle of the Boardwalk area of Gala sits Botanica’s Community Centre Tower, which is a good landmark from which to start your explorations. Here you can go both up and down, exploring the various floors and levels of the tower.
The Boomer Esiason Foundation demonstrates how the global community of Second Life can come together to fight sickness and disease – in this case, cystic fibrosis, one of the most common life-threatening genetic disorders in the world today.
