Build Patterns Wiki

Welcome to the Build Patterns Wiki

This wiki is about Linden Lab's new Sandbox game called "Patterns"! It's a sandbox game like no other, as it uses realistic physics and fluid system, and is about creating, and making sure that creation won't collapse because you used the wrong material!

Currently Patterns is in early public alpha, and you can get a keyhere.

It's set in a world build from triangles set in awesome patterns you make!

Be sure to add more as the game gets more features, and feel free to edit to maximize the knowledge given!

See the current (and historic) feature list here

An Update from the Patterns Team

Hello Patterns Customers, Our first update is right around the corner. We're going to be updating to a bigger world, adding more shapes to find in the world and - based on your feedback - we're adding the ability to place formations on your own creations as well as ours. We're also fixing plenty of bugs.

Our plan is to update on Thursday October 18 on Steam. We'll keep you posted on our progress.


V0.0.1 Genesis is now out for direct puchase from Linden Lab. All pre-order customers should shortly be recieving beta keys for steam!


First there was an announcement, then a trailer and a forum. Then someone started a wiki and then a news section got added. This is the news that a news section got added.

More importantly:
