The Community Gateway
Although they haven’t formally announced it yet, Linden Lab is bringing back the Community Gateway program where SL communities participate in attracting and signing up new users into Second Life. We have been chosen as one of the communities, and we’re doing it the typical “GO BIG” Firestorm way. We have six regions for this gateway, five built and designed exclusively by the brilliant Daddio Dow with contributions from Yony Bing for custom sim surrounds, Namuri, who designed the lovely rivers, Mitsuko Kytori, who donated most of the breathtaking trees and vegetation, Raven Seraph who created an amazing custom Phoenix avatar for our management accounts, and finally Whirly Fizzle and Jessica Lyon for donating the monies to purchase everything else.
There is a diverse variety of immersive experiences to explore and learn from, like an airport with flyable aircraft and sky diving. A mystical enchanted Dow Forest, abandoned marinas with driveable boats, a post apocalyptic city, a sandbox to learn building, a classroom for basic classes, an amphitheater/dance area for events, an incredible underwater world to explore and most importantly, a social area with wonderful free gifts to get new residents started on their way.
We are launching the gateway with a month-long Spooky Nights Hunt organized by the Huntress Spooky Mistwallow purposed to create awareness of the gateway regions and what they offer by encouraging existing users to explore. Ultimately we hope to attract volunteers and resources to help us manage them moving forward. We need knowledgeable, helpful friendly people to spend time helping new residents coming into SL. We also need content creators to donate high-quality, free items for them. If you are interested in helping, please contact the following people with a notecard:
- If you’d like to teach classes: Ed Merryman;
- if you’d like to donate free items for newbies: Amaya Summers;
- if you’d like to volunteer as a helper/mentor in the gateway: Gateway Manager Flossy Andrew.
The MadPea Connection!
We are super excited to announce that we’ve formed a mutually beneficial partnership with MadPea Productions! Essentially MadPea will install some of their older games as free play in our environments, and in exchange new residents will learn about MadPea Games to become potential new customers. MadPea will also then be able to send their new users to our installations to learn how to play MadPea games. Being able to bring this level of fun learning interactivity to the new user experience is just a massively huge deal for the success of this gateway, and we are so excited to have MadPea on board!

FIRESTORM’s 5TH BIRTHDAY!
Join us today as we celebrate crossing into our 5th year of providing the most popular viewer in Second Life and virtual worlds! Five years we’ve been together as a team developing and supporting first the Phoenix Viewer and then the Firestorm Viewer used in Second Life and on other grids. It is a testament to the character of each individual on the team as they have all donated their time on a volunteer basis to provide the best experience possible for our end users.
We have a huge party planned starting at 1pm Sept 3rd (regions open at 12:30, so come early!) We have some amazing gifts to give out too!

1PM – 2PM. We open the event with a live performance by the ever popular Seth Regan (Mankind Tracer), who has been performing live in Second Life since 2006. Seth Regan, a native New Yorker now residing in California, is a singer/songwriter who writes music that speaks to his audience through very relatable experiences and insights. His sound combines classic and progressive rock influences with a modern pop/rock vibe.
2PM – 2:30PM A Light, Life & Love performance by the amazing Changhigh Trinity Sisters Fireshow! These folks have created and designed a unique and extremely powerful fire-dancing show, full of lighting effects of many different kinds, all created, scripted and available inside Second Life, using fire balls, prims, particles and poofers, lasers, sparks, smokes and other kinds of realistic light displays.
2:30pm – 3:30PM DjQuad Radio will be spinning up the dance tunes in an hour long DJ set!
3:30PM – Whenever! Ed Merryman, will start his traditional marathon DJ set, taking requests until there are none left! Last year he ran for 17 hours!
Once again we have some wonderful collectible gifts created by generous vendors just for you on this anniversary occasion!
KittyCats! has created a stunning FireFlurry commemorative cat for our 5th birthday!!! This fully interactive pet is loaded with features. You can hold it, play with it, pet it, have it walk around with you and more! We’re thrilled to have this limited edition item for our 5th birthday as a gridwide gift and hope you will enjoy this “great ball of fire”! It’s a purrfect pet for this occasion and for your Second Life! You can pick up FireFlurry at the party locations or at the KittyCats! in-world location. Re-delivery here.
The Fennux Breedables are giving us a couple of hassle-free pets this year! The Holdable version allows your avatar to hug in your arms this never-before-seen, limited edition Firestorm Fennux. The Running Pet will follow alongside your avatar no matter where you go in SL. Both of these Fennuxes do not require any form of maintenance to keep around as they are made to be completely free. You can pick yours up at the party or have it delivered to you via the Marketplace (not live until 12:30).
