God Mode can do numerous stuff such as allow a linden to edit land or region info, kick,or freeze avatars,claim land or objects to themselves, and even Log everyone of second life! Lindens access god tools from the "Server" Menu. if any resident will try to log into god mode, they get an error message stating "request for special powers failed. This Request will be logged." there used to be a big bug allowing any resident to access god mode. the lindens are POWERFUL! if you wish to see what what you can do w/ god mode, open the "Client" Menu and at the bottom there is "View Admin Options". you will then enter a "Client-Side" God Mode. This can be used to view region statistics, etc. I have observed one admin option you do have is being able to fly in no-fly areas.

"God Mode" is the term used to describe the enabling of administrative tools and features in the Second Life Viewer.

Although the features and menus are compiled into the viewer, if an unauthorized user attempts to enable "God Mode" via [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [ G ], or the Advanced > Request Admin Powers menu option, a dialog is displayed informing the user that "Request for special powers failed. This request has been logged". The options available to an authorized user can still be viewed via [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [ V ] or the Advanced > View Admin Options menu option- although "God Mode" appears to be enabled, the server will not act upon any attempts to use them.

What it can do?

In Linden-owned grids (such as Agni), "God Mode" enables Linden Lab employees to perform tasks entirely in the viewer, such as:

  • edit land or region info
  • kick or freeze avatars,
  • claim land or objects to themselves
  • Log everyone out of Second Life

"God Mode" also allows parcel restrictions such as "no fly" to be ignored.


What do they use it for?

Linden Lab employees may use "God Mode" for many reasons, including the privacy granted from being hidden from maps invisible to sensors etc., reclaiming abandoned land, dealing with griefers.
