New Sims w/e 27th July 2008

As mentioned earlier this week a lot more estates sims going off line than in previous weeks. Growth is still positive but has slowed significantly.

In total there were 537 new sims which after removing renames and 22 mainland sims comes to 448 new estate regions slightly less than previous weeks . This compares with 310 regions going off-line – Again when you remove the renames, mainland sims and also the 31 special ACS single event Heroes regions – this is a loss of 212 estate regions. The prior three weeks have been stable at a loss of 63 ,69 & 63 estate regions each.

Signs of softening of private estate market

A mid week update as there are subtle changes to the number of estates sims going off line this week – To date there have been 262 new sims delivered (+ 33 renames) since Sunday – this is broadly in line with the previous 7 or 8 weeks, but what has changed is the number of Estates sims going off line – 153 for the first 3 days of this week (this also excludes renames and the 31 ACS Heroes sims which went offline) – This is a significant jump on previous weeks ( 63,69 & 63 going off line for the whole of the last 3 weeks) .

Net Growth is still positive but there seem to be signs of softening of the private sim market . This doesn’t seem to be a single large estate holding folding – the names are varied and I can see no major pattern. The turning off is spread over the past 3 days fairly evenly

New Sims w/e 13th July 2008 – Goodbye CSI, Hello Heroes

This week we have 638 new sims bringing total regions to 25878 (20889 estates & 4989 Mainland regions).

The new sims include 10 new help islands as well as large 35 region H shaped continent (close to mainland – just nw of the SL5B area ) made up of regions named Heroes 1 to Heroes 35 – Is this a Heroes TV tie in with Sl similar to the CSI one? They are currently inaccessible and I’m treating them as private estate until I can confirm otherwise.
