More Linden Home Themes Are Coming (End of 2022/Early 2023?)


This week Patch Linden officially confirmed more Linden Home themes are coming soon which is good news. There will be additional floor plans and things out for previous Linden Home themes between now and the end of the year. Yay.

I think there might be a sneak preview of the Ranches at the upcoming SL Christmas Expo in early December 2022. This would be a good time to showcase the new Linden Home theme with a possible release in early 2023.

2022 Linden Home Themes

The lab have released the Newbrooke and Sakura Linden Home themes so far in 2022 including hundred’s of new homes and new hangout areas. It’s amazing to see the Bellisseria continent expand out further throughout 2022. More work is planned for 2023 by the Moles with more new themes in the works.


Ranch Theme – (Possible preview in December 2022/possible release in January 2023/February 2023 at the earliest)

The Ranches are coming along nicely according to Patch for Premium Plus members. Patch mentioned that the lab have not set a particular date for the release yet.

First Premium Plus selection of Linden Homes will be available at some point. There will be more themes for Premium and Premium Plus.


Theme 11 – February 2023 – April 2023 – (my prediction)

No details have yet been announced for this theme.


Theme 12 – June 2023 – August 2023 – (my prediction)

No details have yet been announced for this theme.


Can’t wait to see what comes next.

Lab Gab With Patch Linden and Grumpity Linden


On Friday 21st October 2022 there was a special live episode of Lab Gab featuring Patch Linden and Grumpity Linden. There was a lot of topics mentioned during the live session and some announcements too.

I think probably the biggest thing to take away is the Premium Plus will be able to hold a Homestead regions ($109 a month tier for a Homestead) without having the need to pay for a Full region. Premium Plus subscribers in Europe will soon see the removal of VAT from all subscription options (TBC).

There was a update on Linden Homes including the first premium plus selection of Linden Homes will be the Ranch theme – launching end of 2022 / early 2023 release (more themes are coming soon). There are new plans to get new floor plans for existing Linden Home designs before the end of 2022.

The lab are working on mobile plans and apparently there might be some teasing of this option in early 2023. Speedlight is still a third party viewer and is not part of the lab’s mobile development. The avatar expressiveness project is still in the early phases of development (more in 2023). The lab will be rolling out some big improvements to a first-time avatar customisation process soon. New starter mesh avatars may be released in the next few months or so.

There was more projects and updates mentioned. If you missed the live episode you can catch up below in two parts.
