Live Updates: Second Batch of Houseboats sold out

Latest Updates – Second Batch of Houseboats 


11.15am SLT It took 27 minutes for the new houseboats (709) to sell out.

Patch Linden made this announcement within the past hour…

The Houseboats are available to select as we release them via the Linden Homes Land selection page, and access to the continent addition is open.  We will have a set of region restarts to go through, so please bear with us as that happens if you enter the regions right away.

We know they will go very quickly, but as time goes on we will get more out, and hopefully faster.

Our next focus will be to bring more Traditional Homes plus more Houseboats in another smaller launch while working in parallel to a larger launch and an exciting new theme. 
As usual, stay tuned here for more updates!


10am SLT The new Houseboats expansion is open to the public and the second batch is now available here

[10:30] Patch Linden: Ok, we’re technically out of homes again, but we’re seeing the churn that comes after where they are abandoned and snapped back up.

[10:35] Patch Linden: This is that time when those that abandon have a real chance at losing their home sadly and someone else picking it up

  • Patch Linden: Hehe, really soon, we’re going through our deploy checklist now 🙂

  • 10.50pm SLT (14th):
  • Patch Linden said today that the launch will not happen before 7am SLT today

Over 40 residents waiting at the border

Within the past hour Patch Linden has posted a newer update today on the The New Linden Homes Update Post via SL Forums. The good news is that the second batch of Houseboats will be ready for release within the next 24 hours. The new houseboat expansion is now in it’s final position and will not be moving according to Quartz Mole.

Howdy everyone!

While I’d love to give more notice than this, it is looking like we will have another batch of Houseboats ready for release within the next 24 hours.  This is as much of a forewarning I can provide, because of the complexity behind the work that is going into these releases.  Each release requires the coordination of several teams, and having all of the resources line up to hit the “go button” is pretty organic.  As soon as we are able to do so, I will post another update here!

I will post more updates in the days ahead.

  1. Reblogged this on Thar She Blows! and commented:
    In the meantime Inara has posted about the new batch of houseboats as well,
    and now Daniel’s already come up with the next announcement by the lab. 😉 Slowly it really turns into hard work relaying all their important posts.
    But this seems to be important, when like 40 residents are waiting at the border to be let into the new houseboat ghetto and good old Patchy boy Linden posts “to hit the “go button” is pretty organic. “, and even gets sexual pleasure out of this … or did IK rad something wrong?


  2. I’m getting so frustrated! I’ve been a premium for over 6 years and still can’t get either a houseboat or new home ….will I ever? I’m giving up part of my land just to get one… let’s hope I do. 😦


    1. I only managed to get one. The timing of the release was not announced very well apart from sometime after 7am. It all went in 27 minutes due to the high demand.

      Good luck with the next batch. I hope you manage to get one.

    It was a mad rush for the new Linden Houseboats! Some are thrilled and some are disappointed. I cannot stress enough how important it is to stay informed.

    1. Still can’t believe it took 27 minutes to sell out. It was a big mad rush for the new houseboats.

      I got a new home and it’s lovely next to the water sea. I think I will change it according to the season.
