Sakura Regions Come Online


Sakura regions come online – 27/4/22

Breaking News

Around 68 Sakura regions have just appeared on the grid north of the Stilt homes and they all have Japanese names for this batch. The region names are showing up on the map and at this time not open to the public. It’s not clear where the connection link region will be placed at this time.

Special thanks to SarahKB7 Koskinen who found the new regions this week.

Patch Linden first announced the new Sakura Linden Home theme during Bellissaria Third Anniversary celebrations back on 15th April 2022. There were four preview regions to see this new theme SSPSD1, SSPSD2, SSPSD3 and SSPSD4.

Now it’s going to be interesting to watch developments take place over the coming weeks and months. It’s been exciting following Bellisseria developments since August 2018. I will be tracking for some time yet.

Newbrooke Linden Home Theme Released


Newbrooke Linden Home Theme Released

On Thursday 3rd March 2022 Patch Linden announced the release of the new Newbrooke Linden Home theme. All of the Newbrooke regions are offered in both 512sqm and 1024sqm sized parcels. The new Newbrooke sub continent is located north west of the Chalet sub continent.

Josie Banks is the main connection region linking the Chalets and Newbrooke sub continents together. The Moles will add more in the days and weeks ahead around here.

Newbrooke homes are live

There are 8 stylish house models (Bradbury, Denver, Ender, Faraday, Gatewood = 512sqm & Aldridge, Coniston, Heaton = 1024sqm) to choose from along with the theme specific content pack available from the house controller. There is a new community region called “Newbank” where everyone can hang out and enjoy the new surroundings. The Newbank community area is actually the Welcome Area build in the central area with new hangout areas around the outside.

The full announcement by Patch Linden via SL Forums

Today, we are pleased to release our latest Linden Home theme, Newbrooke!

Our concept of a modern container home community is stylish, warm, and inviting, while being nestled in a contemporary setting of rolling hills peppered with small lakes, ponds, and public pools.

All of the Newbrooke regions are offered in both 1024sqm and 512sqm sized parcels.   In total, there are 8 stylish house models to choose from, and the smaller 512sqm parcel homes can also be placed on a 1024sqm parcel, giving you a larger outdoor area. 
As always, there is a theme-specific content pack available from the house controller, enabling you to match the style and theme with any modifications you wish to do. (Please refer to the covenant rules). 

Also for this theme we have a brand new community region, “Newbank,“ for residents to enjoy and hang out with their neighbors.

We hope everyone enjoys the latest additions to the Belliseria continent and community!

As many know already the Newbrooke theme was first previewed back in December 2021 at the SL Christmas Expo. There was issues with it and so the lab took it offline for some time. Over the last few weeks the Moles have been getting things ready for the big release on 3rd March 2022 and it’s great they have now released it.

Stay tuned for more updates on my blog in the coming days and weeks. Please spread the word about the new Newbrooke Linden Theme release.

A Closer View Of The Modern Regions Batch


As reported this week 49 new Modern Linden Home regions arrived on the grid and now they are all being prepared for the big release happening very soon. This week there has been an increase in Mole/Linden activity happening in various regions and on the red SSP regions on the other side of the grid.

It’s very exciting to see this big development happening now. I can’t wait to see if these group of regions below highlighted will grow further outwards or stay the same size in the weeks ahead. The connection bridge with the Chalet sub continent will take place very soon.

On the north side of the Chalet sub continent there is still more work in the pipeline including new coastlines, new Chalet homes, new hangout areas and hopefully plenty of water region connections with the Modern regions batch.

  • No dates have been announced yet on the opening or the bridge connection.

The new Modern region names are now visible on the world map when logged into Second Life. Check out all the interesting region names below.

Here is updated overall photo below of the well known and famous Bellisseria continent as of 1pm SLT on Tuesday 8th February 2022. As you can see the start of the Modern regions are already showing up on the map. Yay! 🙂

Stay tuned on my blog for more updates soon and feel free to subscribe on the right hand side. Please spread the word 🙂

Fantasy Sub Continent – Developments Update – January 2022


SSPE2772

Earlier this month I blogged about the newest 12 SSPE regions that have been added in the north east corner of the Fantasy sub continent. Today the Moles are still working on these regions adding more Fantasy Linden Homes, new roadways, new rez zones and new interesting areas to explore. These regions should be finished by the end of February 2022.

I have noticed this week that there are more red squares in multiple regions across the Fantasy sub continent meaning things could be delayed for some time until the issues have been addressed. This is the same with the Chalet sub continent in the far north east where there are loads of red squares.

Now – Fantasy sub continent map as of Friday 28th January 2022

Before – Fantasy sub continent map as of Tuesday 11th January 2022

Start of 2022 on 5th January 2022 where the new SSPE regions arrived to complete the continent

Good progress is being made overall and I think at some point in February most if not all of the Fantasy sub continent hopefully will be finished. I will blog about further developments later next month.

SSP Development Area – January 2022 Update

As of Friday 28th January 2022 there are now 17 red SSP regions compared with six red SSP regions on 15th December 2021. The red theme is highly likely the Modern Linden theme which was announced in early December 2021 at the SL Christmas Expo.

Now – 28th January 2022

Before – 15th December 2021

More updates will be posted on my blog in February 2022.

Work Starts On New SSPE Fantasy Regions


SSPE2772 & SSPE2773

The Moles have started work this week on adding new Fantasy Linden Homes in the newly added 12 SSPE regions added in the north east corner. Already there are new bridges, pathways, house parcel markers and Fantasy related stuff dotted about. Developments will continue for many more weeks yet but as you can see good progress is being made.

Here is the fantasy sub continent map as of Tuesday 11th January 2022. The new 12 SSPE regions are now clearly visible on the world map now in the north east corner. In many coastal regions work is still happening around the continent.

Chalet Sub Continent January 2022 Update

A whole lot of houseboats have been added on the east side and south side of the Chalet sub continent. I think once these regions are completed in the weeks ahead then work will start on the west and north side of the Chalet sub continent.

Stay tuned for more new developments soon.

New South Coast Added To Fantasy Sub Continent


This week the southern coastline has been added to the Fantasy sub continent in Second Life and now it’s showing up on the map for the first time. The newest regions are highlighted in red from SSPE2746 to SSPE2755 and the blue arrow on the right hand side is where more regions will be added to fill up the coasts around the sub continent.

Below is the Fantasy sub continent map as of Tuesday 9th November 2021 featuring a brand new west coast line that includes hundreds of new Fantasy Linden homes. The long blue line on the right hand side is what’s coming next with hundreds of more SSPE regions arriving very soon. I think the plan is for the east side coastline of the Fantasy sub continent and the west side of the Chalet coastline to be finished before 2022 starts.

Work will be starting very soon on SSPE2750 and in nearby regions.

I will post more updates on my blog when further big developments happen. Stay tuned for that.

New West Fantasy Batch Of Regions Arrive


In the past week or so a new batch of Fantasy SSPE regions have been added down the western side of the Fantasy sub continent in Second Life. They appear dark on the world map (see below) from SSPE2736 to SSPE2721. The Moles are working on these new SSPE regions now adding hundreds of more Fantasy Linden Homes which will be available in the weeks ahead.

Further batches of new SSPE regions are set to arrive in the weeks ahead around the coastal areas of the Fantasy and Chalet sub continents. When those developments happen I will blog about it for sure. Stay tuned for that.

Keep a look out for new SSPE regions soon. It’s likely we will hear about the next Linden Home theme later this year and that will probably happen at the SL Christmas Expo 2021. At least another two LH themes during 2022 and maybe into 2023.

Fantasy Sub Continent: Mirror Pond Development


Mirror Pond First Preview – 27th September 2021

The Mirror Pond region over at the new Fantasy sub continent in Second Life is being worked on by the Moles. In early August 2021 the Mirror Pond region was empty and now there are new fantasy Linden homes surrounding a big pond in the center. The Moles are still working in the area and may take some to finish. In recent weeks work is still being carried out across the Bellisseria continent and now newer developments are happening. Yay.

3 out of 5 of the blank regions last month the Moles have added new Fantasy Linden homes, small isles, a new bridge and more. It’s worth having a look at the latest new developments.

Fantasy Sub Continent Status Check

  • Mirror Pond – Moles working on new developments – As of 27th September
  • Fairstone Quarry – New Linden Homes and new bridge – As of 27th September
  • Toad Pool – New Linden Homes and small little isles – As of 27th September

The Cthulhu region now has new home place markers for new Chalet Linden homes to be added in the days ahead. New houseboat markers have been added near the water on the east side.

SSP Development Area

No major SSP changes to report this month. There have been active Mole activity in many regions here during the last few months or so.

New Fantasy Sub Continent Now Open In Second Life


News Alert

Just before 4pm SLT today the new Fantasy sub continent got released and already there is 30 people in the Solstace region along with many Moles for testing purposes. There is a new water connection opening shortly between Rigamarole and SSPE2539 it is believed. It’s expected in the hours and days ahead more Fantasy regions will be released for those interested in having a new Fantasy Linden Home.

Region Releases So Far:

  • Solstace
  • Anagonye
  • Acanthis
  • More region releases 13th August onwards

NEW > Patch Linden officially announces the opening of the new Fantasy Linden Homes theme today.

Hey Everyone!

Just when you thought it wouldn’t happen, here it is!

The Fantasy theme is designed to appeal to residents with a flair for the magical and mystic side of Second Life.  The homes are situated on an isolated subcontinent, accessible only by teleportation or through the misty seaway from the coast at Rigamarole.  Wander among fanciful giant mushrooms and glowing crystals. Streets and regional parks are full of bioluminescent trees that come alive after dark with a fairy-like glow, as do the streets, the rocks, and even the roof of your home. You can imagine yourself in a world populated by faeries, wizards, and mythical creatures, a place where anything is possible.  There are also seasonal changes that will occur throughout the year (sorry, no snow!).

Anagonye

Patch goes on to say that more Fantasy region releases will happen on Friday 13th August 2021.

At the time of release, there are four basic models, named Amberbrooke, Mistbrooke, Rosebrooke, and Stonebrooke.  Coming soon, there will be available open-plan versions that look the same as the basic models but have fewer interior walls, so that you can add your own walls to create a customized floor plan. The open plan versions are named Angelspell, Moonspell, Ragespell, and Steepspell.

There will be an amazing community center announced in the near future.  

This release will be paced due to the complexities that lie beneath what drives the homes and all of their magical features.   We will start with a few regions now, and resume the following day (Friday, 13 August) with additional regions as we monitor progress of the region releases as we go. 

As a general reminder and to help facilitate the release process, please do not play “game of homes” by taking and releasing homes during the initial phases of launch.  Also it is extremely helpful to refrain from rapidly switching through different home styles to give the regions time to settle and not overload the backend systems.

We hope everyone enjoys the latest additions to the Belliseria continent and community!

Welcome to the new Fantasy community to all those moving in today. Yay! 🙂

Stay tuned for further updates on my blog and on my Twitter stream.

New Chalet Airstrip Discovered In Buffalo Springs


First Preview Of Buffalo Springs Airstrip

This week the Moles have added a brand new airstrip in the Buffalo Springs region which is located north of the Chalet regions in Second Life. The new airstrip is still under construction and should be finished within the next week or so. There is a rez zone for sailing and a hang out spot I think linked with the new airstrip. This airstrip shows up on the map now for reference.

The Bellisseria continent now has four airstrips to fly between which is really good news. Hopefully the Moles will add more airstrips in upcoming new Linden Home themes expected later in 2021/2022.

Come and fly around the Chalet regions and the Bellisseria continent.
