Chalet Linden Homes Development Update – July 2021


Chalet sub continent – 5th July 2021

The Moles have been very busy in recent weeks building new Chalet Linden Homes and landscaping more of the Chalet sub continent which is apart of the Bellisseria continent. Good progress is being made through the middle central areas heading up north eastwards. Development mainly started in the Hydrant region at the start of June 2021 and now it’s reached the Brookside region. There is some work being made east of the Stilt regions which is due to be finished soon.

Work will start soon in the Baylor Creek region which will head all the way up to the Carmine Sky region. More Chalet Linden Homes are expected to be built in the weeks ahead and the new extension of the new Chalet railway line. There is still loads to look forward to and more new areas will be added in the weeks ahead.

As many know there is a new airstrip that has been built recently in the Bergheim region which looks really nice now. There is a rez zone here to unpack your planes/aircraft.

I will blog again next month on the latest Chalet developments. Stay tuned for that.

SSPE1790 Bridge Update


New Stilt Linden Homes Coming Soon – 1st June 2021

The Moles will be adding a whole lot of new Stilt and Chalet Linden Homes in the days and weeks near the SSPE1790 Bridge. The road goes through the south part of the Chalet continent merging with the new homes already built. At some point later this year the Moles will add more bridges connecting the north and south parts of the Chalet regions.

Work is still in progress with more new areas coming soon. This is still a massive Linden Lab/Moles project and its going to take time to finish all the recent Linden Home themes.

New Chalet Linden Homes Coming Soon – 1st June 2021

The Moles continue to add more Stilts around SSPE1783. There are more Stilts being added nearby which will be finished soon. It’s worth pointing out there is alot of development happening now even on the log homes continent.

Recently new built Stilts – 1st June 2021

The Chalet continent remains unchanged in terms of work developments as of 1st June 2021. It won’t be long until the Moles start adding new bridges and new homes. The outer edges of the Chalet regions are not complete yet.

Chalet continent – 1st June 2021

The next Linden Home theme reveal should hopefully be known before early-mid July 2021 and it will be most interesting to see where new upcoming LH themes will be placed.

The SL18B regions have come online and at least one of them will have the next LH theme I believe.

New Chalet Regions Released!

On Tuesday 30th March Patch Linden announced the chalet regions release via the Second Life Forums under the Linden Homes section. This release is ahead of when the lab initially anticipated it would take place. This is good timing just before the Easter holidays start. The chalet homes come in four basic models named Matterhorn, Alpenrose, Edelweiss and Reizend.

The Chalet theme homes are modeled after stylized European alpine wood-timbered houses (fachwerhaus). The chalet homes are set on 1024 sq m parcels featuring hills, mountain streams, windmills and more.

The Chalet Linden homes new community center “Die Betrunkene Maus is located in Muehlenbach. This is a great place to hang out with friends and see the seasonal changes. Roughly there is 100 Chalet regions between the Bellisseria continent and the Satori continent.

Here are the continents below in Second Life as of 31st March 2021. The chalet home regions are not showing on the map however I have highlighted in red where they are located.

Once the World Map is fixed it will be great to see the visuals of all of the chalet regions and latest SSP regions when zooming in/out. I really hope the lab gets this sorted during April/May 2021 as its been broken since late October 2020.

The next Linden Home theme will be announced after SL18B so most likely in July 2021.
