  • Open your Second Life Viewer 2 & login!
    Login using same username & password (for creating your avatar)
    Look for the IM & notifications icons (lower right side of screen)
    Open invitation for UC Davis group – Click JOIN
    3 ways to reach Davis Island (private)
    Teleport to Med Projects, Davis using landmark sent by HVX Silverstar
    Search your INVENTORY for Med Projects, Davis
    IM someone in group and ask for a teleport
    Watch the vido : see the Joining UC Davis Private Group clip: http://tinyurl.com/7xohc8s
    Download the right SL viewer for your computer operating system: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bnWsEwcN2zI&feature=player_embedded
    Macs should use one of the 3rd party viewers until Viewer 2, version 3 is fixed for macs
  • Second Life Grid Survey Region Database
    http://www.gridsurvey.com
  • World Map available in Second Life Viewer
    (World | World map) or on the web. Mini local map also available in SL viewer.
  • Click to Buy Health & Medicine related landmarks (free)
    Search your inventory to locate them
    (click to teleport using the landmark)
  • Instructions for logging in:
    Befriend each other, then Right click on avatars and befriend them, send IMs, use voice chat, etc. and go to a different location and teleport each other to the location where you are standing (tip: look on your contacts or friends list (at the top of the chat or IM windows)… click on their profile link and then you’ll have the option to teleport them… you can change the message from the generica message. Use teleport board to get to Prophylaxis Island to see the two builds: bioterrorism and Virtual Hallucinations (2 new builds). Fly over using your mini map… click on it from World menu or from the button in your SL viewer
  • Virtual Worlds: Simulations & Research
  • Content created by its users – largest of its kind – Linden Lab in San Francicso – Open source OpenSimulator (OpenSim) grids use different servers written in a different language (C#). Examples include Osgrid (largest), ScienceSim, ReactionGrid, RealXtend, Jokaydiagrid, etc.
  • Look for “Virtual World” in Wikipedia
  • Great book! I Avatar by Mark Stephen Meadows
  • Over 26 milion accounts (users can have multiple accounts)
  • http://www.gridsurvey.com
    How many people are online now?
  • http://www.gridsurvey.com
    How big is Second Life?
  • 68,248 Second Life Regions
  • C++ application on inux OS
    Linden Scripting Language (LSL) and C#
    C# to replace LSL on Mono 2.6 UpGrade (with Larger Prims!!!)
  • Second Life Server Architecture: image permission: Linden Lab.
  • Viewer & Simulators (only the viewer is open source)
    Slurl.com http://maps.secondlife.com
