Patch Linden has just posted up a new update today relating to the release process on the Linden Homes section on the Second Life Forums. Starting today the new Linden Homes will be released one region at a time. The releases will start on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. There won’t be any releases during weekends or during holidays apparently. The new Campers & Trailers will be released in one large batch and will be 512 sqm lots. No time has been given when these will become available to the public.

Trains are coming to the new continent in the near future which will be linked with the SLRR. The first community events space called Bellissseria Fairgrounds will be used for events happening around the 4th of July. The new area has already got an airstrip, a big statue and soon there will be a new water taxi service set up. New small commercial opportunities may be coming to Bellisseria continent sometime later this year.

Hello!

I have an update to our release process I want to share with everyone.  As I alluded to here, we are going to try and change our release strategy for a little while to see if a particular process works better for everyone involved, including many of you who have been very patiently waiting for one of the new Linden Homes.   

Many of you have already been witness to the new process unfolding in front of you whether you knew it or not.   Those regions that have been called out in various places such as New Hamsterdam down to SSPE136 (soon to be officially named).  We did this for multiple reasons, mostly in an effort to show all of you some of the process we go through in real-time to make these beautiful new regions come to life, and give a glimpse into the timeline involved.  

Starting today, we’re going to try to release a region’s worth of new Linden Homes on a regular cadence.  We’re aiming to try for a region per every other day, but as we can not control all the factors involved in the lengthy process, we may have some gaps which could last anywhere between a day to several days and especially on the weekends.  This will also mean that I will not update this post with each region release, but keep it for larger release updates, announcements, news, information, etc.

This will be followed by the future initial release of the new Campers & Trailers theme that has also now been revealed here at SL16B.  This release will be large-scale like other releases we have done in the past, and then also potentially follow the release process I’ve outlined above.

Next up, is an area that is going to be our first community events space called the Bellisseria Fairgrounds!  Our vision for this space is to grant communal access to an area that is clear and ready for set-up of an event.  We are going to supply the outlying basic infrastructure which includes water taxi access to the main continent, an airstrip and landing pad.  We will have a scheduling calendar and process in place where the space can be reserved in advance.  The first events already in line for use of this space will be around the 4th of July holiday coming up.  More information to come about how the reservation process will work in the near future.

Spread the word.

First preview of the new Trailer theme at SL16B Spellbound

First preview of the new area

Here is the first preview of the new Trailer theme at SL16B Spellbound which looks pretty impressive. As member of the press and greeter I took these snapshots hours before the grand opening to show everyone now it’s past 10am SLT. This new area is still work in progress apparently and the final live regions will be different when it launches sometime this year.

Camping Demo Sign:: Please keep in mind this region is just a PEEK at content that is still a work in progress. The final live regions will be somewhat different and will have some variety built into them just like the previous themes do, but it does give a taste of what is coming.

There are new small Trailers and Campers that surround the water lake with mountains around the outside. There is a dirt road with lovely trees across the region with rocks/wood in certain areas. There is a water tower in the north east corner of the Trailer park. Check out the new Community Center Cabin at the main entrance of the new trailer park.

The Lindens and Moles have done a fantastic job overall for SL16B.

What do you think of the new trailer theme at SL16B ?


There are new Linden homes and houseboats next to the trailer park in the south east corner of the birthday regions.

 

New Costner Bay Airstrip Area Discovered


First landing at the new airstrip

A new airstrip has appeared in the Costner Bay area on the new Bellisseria continent featuring a huge open area and docking point. It’s not yet known what else will be added here at this stage.

At the moment there are no rezzing areas so it’s probably best to travel in from somewhere nearby. The area does not yet show on the map. I would expect it will show within the next day or so.

More new Linden Homes and Houseboats have been built within the past week. I would imagine the third batch will be released before the end of June 2019.

Let us in

It appears the new second batch of new houseboats have arrived next to the new Bellisseria continent. The lab have moved over the new houseboat expansion in the past 48 hours or so however they are still not accessible to everyone yet. If you max out the draw distance to 1024 (m) in preferences you can move around the new houseboat regions.

Teleport to the (Le Prince) region in Second Life and have a look at the new houseboats.

The houseboat parcels are to set to 32 x 32 (1024 sq) and 16 x 64 (1024 sq). If you zoom into the houseboats (green specs) there are new region names. From first glance it looks really nice and the layout is great. There is a new pickle shop in the centre where you can get free jar of pickles lol.

I would imagine we will see these new houseboat regions open sometime this week. It looks highly likely now.

The new houseboats location = loading
