Beginners in SL

On this page you can find a link to Second Life’s web site where you can create an avatar and download the free program. Here you can also find the system requirements . Also there is a thorough introduction to SL user interface, where you can get help with all the functions in the program.

To get the most out of SL and gain the best experience in SL, there are a few essentials you need to master. When you are at a given location in SL, you can move by walking, running or flying. To move between locations you must use the teleport function. The teleport is much like a link on a website that takes you from one place to another. When you are logged into SL, you view the platform through a camera. There are different ways to operate the camera, enabling you to zoom in or out and allowing you to view the world from different angles. You can communicate by using text chat or voice chat. Your communication will be open for everyone nearby to see or hear. You can also choose to communicate in private with an individual or a group.
