Bellisseria Parade Of Homes Video


Pring Productions has uploaded a new video today showcasing many of the beautiful decorated Linden homes over at the Bellisseria continent in Second Life. The video runs for 6 minutes and 32 seconds.

I loved watching this video seeing the lovely interior and exterior designs of the many different types of Linden home theme styles. The video features Traditional, Houseboat, Trailer, Victorian, Log and Stilt homes.

According to Patch Linden recently the Chalet Linden Homes (theme #8) release is probably going to happen within the next few weeks at the earliest. The regions have arrived (search for Timberloft) and are now located north east of the Stilt homes area. They are not showing on the Map yet in terms of the visuals.

Some activity going on on the new regions

The next Linden Home theme (#9 & #10) is expected to be announced after SL18B is over which is normally around early July. Patch has said this about the upcoming new theme after Chalets “It will “blow your socks off” and it will be “probably be our most impressive theme to date,” with “unique capabilities unlike any other theme”.

I will blog on the Chalet release when that happens on my blog and other new SSP developments. Stay tuned for that. Exciting times ahead.

Log Homes Railway Stations – Randelsham Forest To SSPE1110 Train Station


Here is a preview of all the new train stations from Randelsham Forest going all the way to the end of the line at SSPE1110. It’s important to remember the Moles are still working on the east side of the log homes continent building new log homes and new interesting areas. The SSPE region names will change at some point in the months ahead.

Log Homes Railway Map Version 2.0 – February 2021

Key Areas

Log Homes Railway Development – January 2021 Update


In recent weeks the Moles have added more railway track and more railway stations on the east side of the log homes continent highlighted in blue on the map below. It’s not yet open to the public for rezzing trains. The wait is almost over.

My last blog post back in late October 2020 I posted that the Moles extended the railway line from SSPE1162 to SSP1165. Since then the railway line has expanded through the middle of the log homes continent going east then turning up north near the new recently opened Stilt homes regions highlighted in red squares.

There are now new railway stations, rez areas, signal points, victorian tunnels, bridges, railway line crossings and much more. The Moles have been working on this railway development since early 2020 and have done a great job going through the different Linden home theme styles.

The latest new railway line starts roughly from SSPE1125 all the way up to SSPE1111 where there is a big loop around. There is a new railway station in SSPE1111 and a train on the tracks nearby.

I believe this is the end of the railway line on the east side of the log homes continent for now. I will blog again if new changes happen next month.

It’s worth flying over the new railway line from one side to the other side of the log homes continent seeing what’s new. I think you will be amazed at all the latest developments.

It’s going to look really exciting when the railway track finally opens in the weeks/months ahead along with new Linden homes. I can’t wait to ride the new railway soon and I’m sure many can’t wait to rez trains too.

Great progress so far overall and I can’t wait to see what comes next throughout this new year.

Stilt Linden Homes Planned Release Expected Today


On 20th December Patch Linden posted a promising update in the Linden Homes section of the Second Life Forums saying that the Stilt Linden home release is proceeding as planned for Monday 21st December 2020.

It’s expected there will be more than 3000+ Linden Homes released later on today including houseboats, campers, log homes and Stilt homes. 

Delays are likely but hopefully everything will go as planned today. 

Heed the big huge disclaimer at the bottom of my Flickr posting:

[Giant Disclaimer™ – if everything goes according to plan]

I’m going to clearly warn you all now, if you leave your homes and this DOES NOT work, there’s no going back potentially and you’ll be homeless.

I suggest you do NOT abandon your homes until we are absolutely sure the release is proceeding as planned tomorrow – we will not run out of Stilt homes for several days.

This is very exciting news for anyone wanting to get one of the Stilt homes in the new extension area east of the log homes continent. The wait is almost over. 

Sty tuned for further updates later today and during this week. 

11 Linden Homes Themes Are Planned

Patch Linden comment via the Second Life Forums…

For those of you counting the themes:

  1. Traditional
  2. Houseboats
  3. Campers
  4. Victorian
  5. Log Homes
  6. Stilt Homes
  7. The next theme
  8. The theme after the next theme
  9. The theme after after that next theme
  10. The theme that is after that
  11. The theme that is after #10

The pattern to my teasers is pretty clear.  I don’t tease well in advance, and the timing of my teasers is consistent with when things are due to be released.

Have fun!  😉

The lab may say something about the 7th and 8th Linden home theme during the SL Christmas Expo taking place next month in Second Life. 

We will have to wait and see.
