UPDATE: 7th June: New regions have been added = SSPE89, SSPE90, SSPE105, SSPE106 and SSPE107. Not visible on the map yet. Looks like new houseboats area will be launching soon and a red circle. The empty green space nearby will be used for more new Linden homes.
The new Linden homes development area is starting to take shape on the new Bellisseria continent which is still under construction. These new Linden homes can be found in four joined regions from SSPE71, SSPE72, SSPE73 and SSPE74. There could be as many as 80 new houses which will come available probably sometime this month. No ETA yet.
From the air looking down they look very nice now with the roadways and pathways connected but it’s not finished yet. Patch Linden said this yesterday on Wednesday 5th June 2019…

Patch Linden: See that region there to the east? (SSPE71 – SSPE74)
Patch Linden: Remember when I said we might try something different?
Patch Linden: Just keep your eyes on that
Patch Linden: We’ve got a little bit of a competition on resources with SL16B right now too, but I promise we’re still working on more
The lab are focused on SL16B which starts in exactly two weeks time so I’ll be surprised if these new Linden homes will be fully ready before then. If they do become available within the next few weeks then I would imagine they sell out pretty fast like the houseboats batch did.
Patch Linden posted a small update today on The New Linden Homes Update thread on the Second Life Forums regarding the Linden Homes covenant and in response to many questions the lab have had on the “commercialism within the new Linden Homes”.
The general message is this “if it feels commercial, then you probably shouldn’t be doing it”. Here is the text of the addition to the updated covenant which comes into effect from today.
The new section….
*Activities and items that could be construed as commercial and for profit by Linden Lab are not permitted in the residential homes and houseboats in Bellisseria.
The small update in full…
Hi everyone, I have a small update for you regarding the Linden Homes covenant today.
This is in response to the many questions we’ve had surrounding forms of commercialism within the new Linden Homes. The general gist here is: if it feels commercial, then you probably shouldn’t be doing it. Here is the text of the addition to the covenant which goes into effect today:
Activities and items that could be construed as commercial and for profit by Linden Lab are not permitted in the residential homes and houseboats in Bellisseria.
As a note of clarification and to call out a specific use case example: If a content creator is using a Linden Home as a display model to feature content they’ve created specifically for a Linden Home, this by itself is ok. What you may not do is put up signage on the parcel that advertises it, your store, brand, redirect people away from the home for purchases, etc. You can not sell items off your parcel. What you can do is direct people to your Linden Home as a demonstrator of your creations from elsewhere (your main store or marketplace listings). Also, the little cafe/pub type places that have popped up are really awesome and fun, but should also follow the same sorts of guidelines.
We think in spirit, the desire to maintain the community feel of the neighborhood and homes, that this small adjustment to the covenant will help to make things clear that these are homes, not stores or shops. We have other plans in place to satisfy requests for something like a yard sale, where you could feature Linden Homes add-ons in a communal area already in place, to come soon™.

Within the past 12 hours or so it looks like new Linden Homes are being set up in the SSPE71 & SSPE72 regions of the new Bellisseria continent. There is not much to see at the moment apart from the parcel green outlines. There may be a few new Houseboats added soon around these regions. There is no ETA on when these new Linden Homes will be available.
It’s going to be interesting watching the Moles build this new area in the days ahead. It’s best to watch from a distance so the Moles can get on with their work here.
Watch out for the new danger sign in these regions. If you click the sign this message appears…
[06:55] Under Construction Sign:: Please pardon the dust. Access to this region has been temporarily restricted while we work to bring you more Linden Homes. Please don’t bother the Moles while they are working. The faster they can complete their work the faster homes can be made available.
There is a new road interchange section in the SSPE72 which is not connected to any roads at the moment.
Stay tuned for newer continent developments in the weeks ahead.
