New Babbage - The Steampunk City

Recommended Posts

One of the most heavilly filmed and photographed cities in Second Life has some land available for either Residential, Commercial.. or even both!

The City State of New Babbage was founded in 2007 and is a contiguous estate of 10 regions based on the theme of Steampunk and the Victorian era.


All of the regions that make up New Babbage is mixed commercial/residential the only exception is Port Babbage which is mostly commercial only.


  • All Builds Inspected - No worries about big pink neon glowing box builds appearing next door to you. All buildings, even new ones placed by existing residents, are inspected before they are placed down.
  • Steampunk/Victorian Theme - The entire city is set in the time period of the 1880's, with a major twist of Steampunk thrown in.
  • Formal and Informal Events - A city the size of New Babbage has regular events, wether it be the weekly ones like Foot Tappin Friday, or the large formal events like the ball at Piermont Landing. Socialising and getting to know your neighbours wont be a problem :D
  • Roleplay is OPTIONAL! - New Babbage is a themed city, set in the Victorian Era. However the RP side of it is NOT enforced. It is up to you whether you want to RP or not. We have left the city optional in order for folks to simply... look around and explore the city. No need for OOC tags, no need to dress up in period.
  • Quarterly Meetings - At the start of every season the land owners all meet up in City Hall with Mr Tenk (the city Mayor and owner) to discuss the city and any major events coming up in the next few months of the coming season.
  • City of Builders - Worried that you cant build a home or store that will fit with the theme? New Babbage is well known in the Steamlands as the "City of Builders", someone in the city will be able to build your home or store building for you.
  • Engineers Sandbox - Land owners in the city get access to The Fells sandbox platform, a private builders sandbox in the northern end of the city.


The current land parcel list can be found at the city hall, there is a notecard giver in the middle of the map :) http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Babbage%20Square/160/162/115
