Littlefield Grid Open Meeting, October 2013

For those who couldn’t attend, here is a synopsis of the Grid Meeting, October 4, 2013.

The Hypergrid “4096 bug” has been fixed, which prevented people from hopping long distances in the hypergrid. Firestorm developers Tonya and Cinder did the work on regions provided by Littlefield Grid. Congrats to the developers for solving this problem.

Several people from Littlefield Grid attended the Opensim Community Conference in September. It was a great way to meet people and make contacts from other grids and find out what interesting things are going on around the Opensim world. The conference was very well organized. We are looking forward to next year.

New stores just opened in Littlefield: Kayla’s Designs, in the Victorian village, Littlefield NE – Gorean themed clothing for men and women; Nightfire, in the Adult Mall – adult furniture; Erotique, in the Adult Mall – erotic photos; and Anam Cara Designs, in Littlefield – women’s clothing (Stormm Firecaster).

You can now send group notices that will be delivered to everyone, even offline users, but only if you send the notice from WLFG radio station, located behind the photo store. Just walk into the station, and stand there while you send your notice.

Stonehaven Party Isle opened for Halloween effective October 1. Drop in for some spooky fun.

The Coney Island region is scheduled to open in November. It is a combination of New York’s Coney Island and New Jersey’s Wildwood boardwalk and beach. It has rides and little stores on the boardwalk, a tram car, a video game arcade, and an undersea scuba diving region.

Littlefield Grid continues to grow quickly, and we now have over 600 members in just 6 months and 154 regions.

Be sure to join us for the next Grid Meeting, November 1!

OpenSimulator Community Conference 2013 – Part 2

On September 7-8, 2013 several Littlefield Grid members attended the first annual OpenSimulator Community Conference.

This groundbreaking event took place on a special OpenSimulator grid that was created specifically for the purpose. It was the first attempt to bring together members of many OpenSimulator grids at one time for a conference. It was interesting to hear innovative uses of the OpenSimulator platform for city planning, for teaching English to children in China, and for training for soldiers in the U.S. Army.

The conference organizers did a fabulous job creating the venue and the schedule. Even with over 200 avatars present at one time, there was very little lag and technical glitches were few. The sessions were interesting, and proved a valuable opportunity to meet new friends, network with other grids and see what they are up to.

  • 359 unique accounts attended the in-world conference (out of 419 accounts created/registered).
  • 165 of those accounts were HyperGrid users, coming from 45 different Opensimulator grids.
  • 638 live streams were accessed by unique users on the six conference channels on Saturday, 526 live streams were accessed on Sunday, and 2291 archived video recordings of conference presentations have already been viewed.

If you missed this excellent event, don’t worry–it’s not too late!

Every conference session was recorded, and you can listen to the streams at the OSCC website at your convenience.

The Expo, where sponsoring grids created exhibits showcasing their grids, will remain open to the public through September 30, and you may visit it any time. How to get there via Hypergrid from Littlefield Grid:

  1. Open the World Map in your viewer.
  2. In the search box, type: http://cc.opensimulator.org:8002/
  3. When the map reports “Region Found!”, click Teleport.

You will land on Expo Zone 1. The Littlefield Grid exhibit is on Expo Zone 7. Enjoy your explorations!

Here are a couple more photos from the event:

OpenSimulator Community Conference 2013 – Part 1

Toy McBride’s reflections on the OpenSimulator Community Conference 2013

First day of the conference – Saturday September 7th 2013

With much excitement we gathered in keynote areas on OpenSimulator Community Conference grid, where we listened and watched the very first OS Community Conference.  I wasn’t sure what to expect at this event, or how it would play out, but I have to say I enjoyed it very much.  It was very interesting to see so many people from around the various virtual worlds gather in one place.

It commenced with conference open & welcome with a panel of speakers, then moving on to Keynote Panel, The Future of OpenSimulator.  Sadly after this part of the program I had to log out for the night, Australian time zone can be harsh in the virtual world.

What I can report on though is Littlefield Grid’s OSCC13 dance party held at Speakeasy region on LFgrid.  We had a fabulous turnout from the grid’s community plus some visitors from other grids, we were also lucky to have some of the keynote speakers attend the dance.  Thank you all for attending our celebration for OSCC13, we hope you enjoy your visit to our grid.

Below I have uploaded some pictures I took at the conference and from our dance party.
