Earlier this week I posted the latest railway track progress going eastwards on the log homes continent and this blog post looks at whats going on down south to the buffer stop. It’s worth exploring if you love new areas.
It’s worth mentioning this new track going down south is not open for use yet. This is just a preview for now until the Moles fully complete the area very soon. I am very excited about the new developments going on this month.
The start of the new railway track going down southwards starts in SSPE1459 with the LH Signal Bridge with some red cube placeholders nearby. The railway track then follows main road down south passing many signal points along the way. The railway track then goes into a forest where there is a new train station and finally the line ends with a buffer stop post.
As you go down south there are newly built log homes along the side of the new road with the railway track next to it which looks very nice.
I can’t wait for the south and east railway line to open to the public in the months ahead. It’s going to be super fun for sure.
The Moles are now extending the log homes train track futher eastwards from SSPE1460 to SSPE1162. There are new signal points and two new victorian tunnels that have been built so far. Within the next few months the new railway will go up the east coast of the log homes continent with brand new train stations and more new areas to explore.
Exciting times ahead! 🙂
It’s worth pointing out this new extension is not completed yet so it’s best to wait a little longer before driving trains near this new area. The new railway splits into two in SSPE1460 where if you go down south are new signal points along the way.
Can’t wait for the whole new extension to be completed very soon. I will blog more new developments next month.
The Moles are still working on the log homes continent and there has been some new developments. In the past few weeks work has started to pick up again across the log homes continent especially on the south coast with new log homes, new waterfalls, new rez zones and much more.
I have highlighted the red area above where the new homes have been built in the past week or so. The blue areas is where the next batch of new homes will be in the weeks ahead.
Check out the new lighthouse in SSPE1149 which looks really nice. I love the waterfall area and how the moles are transforming the nearby regions. Great job! 🙂
PossibleWater ExpansionComing Soon
There are new blue waterway spacer guide objects along the side of the east coast of the log homes continent. I wonder if this is for a future water expansion or perhaps something else ?.
The SSP83X region looks a little different this month with a new water area located in the north east corner. Could this be the new Stilt home layout ?
Some interesting new developments so far this month and as you can see work has certainly picked up again across the Bellisseria continent. The Moles will be adding more train tracks and new train stations in the weeks ahead.
It’s now been two years since the first SSP regions arrived on the Second Life grid. There was just 80 regions back then and no one really knew what the regions would actually be used for. Many speculated that it could of been an extension to Horizons or Linden Realms or a new continent for something.
Linden Lab back then said it was to do with a Super Secret Project they are working on. The Second Life Grid Survey picked up the new SSP regions on 19th August 2018. I discovered the SSP regions on the map the day after on 20th August 2018 with many others. There was so much buzz about these new SSP regions so a new thread was set up named SSP? on 21st August 2018.
The community excitement grew more a few weeks later when more SSP regions were added. The SSP continent grew from 80 regions to 384 regions. This became the working grounds for the LDPW Moles to start preparations for the new Bellisseria continent. The SSP continent grew further out in the weeks and months that followed until the grand opening on 15th April 2019.
Since 15th April 2019 the Bellisseria continent has grown doubled in size with new Linden home themed areas and mini-continents etc. It’s been great following the new developments during the past two years and Bellisseria still has room to grow still.
Looking Ahead – (Late 2020 & 2021)
The logs home continent on the east side is still being worked on and hopefully that will finished within the next three months or sooner. The train line expansion will be worked on very soon and that’s going to be amazing once thats opened. The Moles are working along the coastline adding new homes and cool new areas.
Once Second Life has moved into the cloud before the end of 2020 then the lab will add batches of new SSP regions again. You can expect this to happen more during 2021 if all goes to plan with more new Linden Home themes launched.
The new Stilt homes will be launched on the grid either later this year or early next year. Still no confirmed date for that.
