News from the Lindens:
That platform is called Sansar, and it’s designed to enable people to easily create, share, and ultimately sell their own social VR experiences, which can be used on PCs as well as with head-mounted displays (HMDs) like the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive. Though there are some conceptual similarities with SL, Sansar’s been built from the ground up with very different approaches in many areas, including scale, discovery, performance, design and ease of use, and the platform’s business model to name just a few. Sansar is very different from Second Life, and it’s not a sequel nor a replacement.
Over the past months, the Sansar team has run a limited “creator preview” program, and some of SL’s most talented creators have been among those invited to test the platform. They’ve created some amazing experiences - from immersive artworks to narrative experiences, educational spaces, games, fantasy words, sci-fi scenes, roleplaying environments, and much more. Today, Sansar’s creator beta opens to everyone, which means you can create your own experiences with Sansar, list virtual items for sale in the Store, and explore the creations others have published.
If that sounds interesting, you can sign up for free at Sansar.com right now. A few things to bear in mind:
You don’t have to have an HMD to use Sansar. You can create and explore in desktop mode - but the VR experience is highly recommended.
It’s free. Free to join, free to create your own experiences, free to explore.
It’s a beta. It’s a big step for the new platform, and it’s also just the beginning. Many Second Life Residents - especially those interested in VR - will love what they can do with Sansar today. But there are still many features and capabilities yet to be added. Just as SL has dramatically improved with new additions over time (remember the days before voice? before Windlight? before mesh?), there’s a lot the team is looking forward to quickly adding to Sansar.
Only you can use your SL name as your Sansar avatar ID. Sansar’s name system is different than SL’s. Everyone has a unique “avatar ID” (like a username) and an avatar name, which doesn’t need to be unique (like a display name). If you’re JohnDoe Resident in SL, no one else can use JohnDoe-Resident as their Sansar avatar ID. Stay tuned for info on how to claim your avatar ID; for now, if you try to use an SL name as a Sansar avatar ID you’ll get a ‘not available’ error.
Second Life Is Here to Stay!
We want to be very clear that the opening of Sansar’s beta does not at all change our love of and dedication to SL.
We are continuing to invest in Second Life, and the SL team (which is separate from the team developing Sansar) remains absolutely dedicated to Second Life and all of its Residents. We’re working hard on some new projects to make Second Life even better, and we won’t be stopping. As always, keep an eye on this blog for updates on exciting upcoming SL developments.
In an effort to honor our recent falled Brother SilentDeath we will be placing up a CSGO server.
Stay tuned for more info....

Travis' mother asked if I would let it be know how much the gaming community meant to him.
I know there was a time in my life when I moved from my hometown and really didn't know anybody in the new area.
I found a game called "Counter Strike" and fell in love with it.
One day I stumbled across a warcraft server called CGZ, and found it facinating. Every time I would log on I would jead straight to that server. I found the players there helpful in teaching me the ins and outs of the game. Low and behold I was asked to join the clan, I was ecstatic. In time I met some cool people (not knowing what they looked like) that help with not only the feeling of being homesick, but know I knew people.
I know Travis had some bumps along the way. But I also know he games. We all have games. We will always Have CGZ.
So just know that as you guys made an impact on me, I know you made an impact on Travis.
Thank you DOA for creating CGZ (CyberGameZone.
Godspeed Silent Death."

" Well said Dead_Naked_Pimp. As each member joined CGZ in the past they held a spot in my heart as I led the team to some awesome gaming moments. It was a honor and pleasure. I did form a special connection to SilentDeath/Travis. He would share many things he would be going through. Travis was a fighter, learner and more than anything; he loved all those around him. He would find the good in any bad and make something out of it no matter how bad it was. I was very lucky to have met him in real life. I will never ever forgot that time, nor with the others that were able to come. You are still mean alot. I even wish we all played together again but I know its hard once you grow up. RIP Big SD. -Doa"
For those reading and like- what's going on. CyberGameZone is a gaming community and has been since 2000. I was one of the original Founders and Creator of the [-CGZ-]. During our peak times, we have over 100 member and covered nearly 10 games. CounterStrike was the CORE. This was around CS 1.1 or 1.3. All CGZ members when joined said "CGZ 4 Life". And that is exactly what we believe. On 7/28/2017 a long/OG Member of CGZ / Brother passed away. RIP Bro. -DOA aka Adam
