Happy New Year 2017

Another year come and gone, the good and the bad, the highs and the lows, things working and not working. Another fun year of Second Life with Firestorm. 2016 is over, in the past, ancient history, let’s wave good-bye to a great 2016.

Now along comes 2017. A new year, new possibilities, new resolutions for those who attempt new year’s resolutions. A new year of Second Life, a new year with Firestorm, role playing, going to clubs, hanging out with friends or enemies, basically doing your Second Life thing.

From the Firestorm team, we thank you all for making us what we’ve become, the greatest viewer on the grid, and we wish you all a wonderful and prosperous new year!

  • Hi,

    Thanks to you SecondLife continues to survive and is getting more stable with less trolls on it, There has been some good work on the RC servers and the Bento projects to make SL great again <- pun intended 🙂

    All in all FireStorm Viewer should easily become the goto viewer, many of the great tools it has are ESSENTIAL especially for owners, developers, and people who do more than walk-n-talk in Second Life 🙂

    Keep up the great work! thank you!


    January 4, 2017

  • Yes, it’s the viewer I’d suggest too. Owners and developers are only few though, while the vast majority are indeed “people who do walk-n-talk”. Won’t LL Viewer be enough for most people then? But Firestorm isn’t just a Viewer for devs and builders. Of course there is the large BDSM community who use it for RLV, as you can see how much they cried, when they wanted the functionality being updated in Firestorm. Not my thing, but there is that. There are also a ton of obscure functions, that not everyone even know. I met various Firestorm users who didn’t even know about area search, and that’s a pretty visible function! However Firestorm has many little interesting things that appeal everyone, plus they listen to the community and make the UI more handy and usable (e.g. the snapshot floater or search in preferences), even simple stuff as when you look for a group gift, right click -> edit -> click on the group link. Not to mention that Firestorm is more stable, plus it has a working 64 bit version since a while, and the Linux one works pretty well too.

    On other hand, they used to lag behind LL updates, sometimes for months, and that annoyed who had their products ready for sale and they had to wait for months until Firestorm finally updated. Sometimes it was because of LL buggy updates. The last time with Bento there was plenty of cooperation between the community and LL instead, and I hope it will keep working in that way 🙂

  • Happy New Years to Jessica and the entire Firestorm team who work tirelessly to bring us such a great viewer. Thank you one and all and here’s to a bright and happy 2017 to all!

  • i have release 52150 so does that mean i have bento? my also clearing my cache doesn’t effect my inventory right? mt sl seems a bit choppy which i understand it can be mt wifi or computer, any other suggestionds?

  • Yes, 52150 has Bento.
    If you want to try some free Bento content, these Bento hands with Bento animations are free:

    Yes. clearing cache will affect your inventory.
    If you clear cache (which includes inventory cache), your inventory will need to all fetch again from the LL server. That should only take a couple of minutes at the most though, depending on your inventory size.
    Hard to say what’s causing your choppy performance without more information. If you want help troubleshooting that, please file a JIRA issue ( and include a paste of all your system information from Help -> About Firestorm & as much detail as you can about the problem & support can help you.

  • Happy New Year 2017 . Just lets hope Donald Trump dont kick outsiders out . Hehehe , who knows what he gonna do , all can ens , even sl . If he keeps usa first promise .


    January 20, 2017

  • The fun thing is the USA are made of immigrants. If you kick all the outsiders out, there will be just Cherokee, Navajo and other native Americans. And you would lose some valuable contribute to SL too. Here is LL statement on Trump’s EO: That EO sports the same list Obama had, but that’s subtly manipulative, because circumstances are different, as well as intentions, and indeed it’s resulting in different consequences as well. Nor will save you from criminals. Look at who is banned and who killed US citizens instead:
    Although terror isn’t just killings. And they are all failed countries though, that’s why there were included originally in 2015, under precise circumstances. But foreign nationals from those countries were not explicitly banned from entering the United States, but only asked to reapply for their visas.
    And look at the number of Americans killed annually by…
    Actually you should beware or armed toddlers more LOL
    So it won’t really help if you are aiming at a precise issue, it’s just grabbing incoherent stuff and scapegoats, and making you believe it’s a strong stance, while in truth is just causing problems to a ton of honest citizens, damage hi tech companies and so on. So LL statement of disappointment, opposition and rejection isn’t surprising. Let’s hope in a good year, but the start wasn’t so great, again.


    February 5, 2017

  • Lets hope he does however kick out the illegal criminals. Never fear the unknown. Never worry. Worrying it like a rocking chair,…it will give you something to do but it wont get you very far. Stay strong and keep the faith and lets make Second Life great again! woot!
