Second Life Downloads
Tips and Second Life downloads can vastly improve your Second Life experience in many ways. The second Life virtual world is so large and far reaching that every user needs advice on what to do, how to do it, and where to do it. Without this advice you might miss out on some great opportunities.
Second Life provides downloads for members, and these downloads come in several different forms. First, the game itself, the Viewer Interface, is considered a Second Life download because it must be loaded on your computer in order to function. This is a quick download that should take no longer than five minutes on an average speed computer.
New software and upgrades can also be found in the SL downloads area. Whenever Linden Lab, the creators of Second Life, comes out with upgrades, they put a warning message with a link on the second life viewer logging page. You need first to download the upgraded version of the viewer through this link in order to be able to log into Second Life. Sometimes important information and notices can be sent by email to users from Linden Lab. All these options make keeping your program up-to-date very simple.
In the download area you can find different Second Life viewers including the standard viewer and the Release Candidate, which includes all the new features soon to be released and bug fixes.
Another popular Second Life download concerns avatars. After becoming comfortable navigating their avatar many users want to change the appearance of their avatar. Second Life offers members free templates that allow them to create and design their own clothing. These templates can be downloaded to your computer for use with Adobe Photoshop.
New members will find that experienced Second Lifers are a fountain of information. Usually more than happy to give advice, experienced Second Lifers will answer questions and point you in the right direction if you become lost.
This camaraderie found on Second Life is one of the reasons the program is so popular. It’s not a competition, it’s an experience.
Second Life experts say the best tip they can give new users is to take it slow. There is so much to see and you can easily become overwhelmed. Spend time exploring the different virtual environments available to members. You may have joined to become a Second Life land baron but your will have a better chance of success if you spend time in world meeting other users and getting the lay of the land before making any commitments. If you are starting your second life a good recommendation is to download the Quickstart Guide, a PDF file including all the basics. You can download “Adobe Reader” to read PDF files here.
Once you feel comfortable with the basics and navigating the Second Life virtual world it is time to get to work. You can open a clothing store, design a home, buy land, or party all night long. There are opportunities for education, networking and chances for you to travel across the globe.
All of these experiences will be greatly enhanced if you have the latest Second Life software so visit the Second Life downloads area often. There you will find what you need to insure you have the ultimate experience online in your virtual world.
