5553 Main Grid sims online as of 2010-02-17

Welcome to SLMaps. At some point I will make a better front page, but this will for now, and is easy enough to update.

(ha ha the above was probably a decade ago, and I never did make a better front page. Anyhow I've moved to new hosting, and done the minimal modernizations to the PHP so this main page and the image drawing will still work. But please note that the as of is 2010, I just haven't been that active in SL in a long time. And I'm sure there are better solutions out there for tracking the grid. But it doesn't cost me any more to keep this site going for the little traffic it gets. Enjoy!

I have a compilation of older Linden Lab maps of the grid, resources for interpreting the Magellan Linden "Dingbat" maps, the ability to see a map of the grid for a certain date, flash maps of grid expansion, and links to similar fansites.

Old Maps

Older maps of the grid, as images, drawn up by Linden Labs. Compiled from my own research as well as other citizen's texture inventories.

Dingbat Maps

A compilation of images and maps for interpreting Magellan Linden's findings from Spring 2004 and predicting future landmasses.

Timeline Maps

Enter a date in YYYY-MM-DD format, and get a PNG image of the map of the grid on that date. Please include dashes.
