New Sims

For the past 7 months I’ve been surveying and documenting the regions in the Secondlife Main Grid and reporting weekly new changes on SLUniverse , Here is a link to the my thread. This Blog has become quiet since then, so I’m going to investigate populating it with these weekly reports (including back reports). I intend posting both here and at SLUniverse but will be looking at making my SL Region database available through this site.

I’ve transferred copies of all SLUniverse posts about new regions to this blog. from the earliest on 23rd March 2008.

New Sims w/e 13th April 2008

An interesting week, 76 of the new CSINY sims go off line – I wonder who paid the Tier (if any) on that short lived Grid presence – Corsica Continent is fleshed out further as 36 regions are named and finally the new Gaeta Continent is accessible (Just to the east of Corsica ) Its been visible on the map for several months but overnight LL made it accessible – The 48 regions all have Generic names (Gaeta_5_reg1 etc)

This now brings the total visible number of main grid regions to 18348 ,that is unique names, there are another 133 generic Linden sims with duplicate names bringing the grand total to 18481. The new 48 Gaeta sims are in the new list as two generic names. Continue reading →
