I’ve been practically living at #SL15B.
This year it’s been a lot of fun, with TWO historic walks - one by Marianne McCann and one by the Linden Moles - an epic Federation inspired Auditorium built by Bay City alumnus ADudeNamedAnthony, a dazzling tropical DJ stage rippling with juicy colours by Lim Pikajuna (builder of SL14B's Max Mystery Island sims) and an exquisite 8 bit chandelier “cake stage” by Mikati Slade. Straddling the dark side in 4 sims is the Crystal Rotunda Main Stage by Linden Department of Public Works and the return of Walton F Wainright with a dark, Eastern inspired temple surrounded by serpent spirits for Stage Left.
The Lindens had a greater hand in participating this year and added replicas of two classics due south: The cornfield is crawling with a handful of glytch species and one exclusive for SL15B in Common, Rare, Epic and Avatar versions. The last Bear Island is back, although orientated back to front. Some old classics linger along with some new ones, most of which give free copies.
Jo Yardley also had double duty: Making her annual replica of Berlin for denizens and outsiders to mingle, plus a walk-thru of Time Portal featuring another historic era every few steps.

MIA this year are Loki Eliot at work on other projects and MadPea.
For those unaccustomed to or overwhelmed by so much content in one place, may I recommend the Yava touring pods. They're everywhere and offer an effortless overview of everything.

Noteworthy mentions are that most of the sims - those not cast into perpetual night - appear to run on a 24 hour clock. Also the sun is a blazing plywood cube. Note: if you don't see a cube then be sure that Atmospheric Shaders are enabled.
