With even famed sites like Insilico leaving Second Life while other private sims leave the grid at a rapid pace, Linden Lab needs new ways to shore up its revenue base and convert people to becoming monthly Premium subscribers. The latest benefit is a smart one -- more exclusive sandboxes:
First up, we’re proud to introduce 5 new Premium Sandboxes! Like other Premium sandboxes, these are only available to Premium members. We have allocated 4 new regions for cross server code testing, perfect for those multi-region experiences; the Blue Steel, Magnum, LeTigre and Second Life Main regions are each Premium sandboxes arranged directly adjacent to each other in a square... The fifth new region is called: Sandbox Premium Weapons Testing which, as the name suggests, is dedicated to testing your SL munitions! In the past, weapons testing was done in general sandboxes where it was prone to overcrowding, griefing and instability. It was very difficult to get testing done. Now we’ve opened up more space for Premium members to test their combat gear in a less disruptive environment.
Second Life's sandboxes have always been the best part of Second Life -- when they're not overrun with resource hogs and douchenozzles, that is. Adding more premium sandboxes to Premium accounts are a great way to create exclusive social spaces for established users.
And Zoolander approves of the sim names.
