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.
New Rez Zone in SSPE2773
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.
Within the past 12 hours or so twelve new SSPE regions (SSPE2772 to SSPE2783) have been added to the Fantasy sub continent in the north east corner. This is exciting news because with these new regions actually completes the Fantasy sub continent coastal ring.
These new regions are completely flat, unterraformed and they may not be visible on the world map for some time. The moles will probably start adding new fantasy homes and road networks etc in the days/weeks ahead.
I would expect new Linden home themes to be placed in a north east direction where there is a lot of blue void on the grid. Maybe clusters or separate regions connecting them up with former Linden home themes. There is still at least another two Linden home themes yet to be officially be announced/released.
I will blog on further new developments very soon. Stay tuned for that.
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.
More Fantasy regions have now been released since Friday 13th August 2021 for those that want a new Fantasy Linden Home. The fastest way of claiming a new Linden home is through the Second Life land selection page. There is plenty of choice now from traditional, houseboat, camper, stilt home on land, chalet, log home and now fantasy. There are more themes in the works but they are unknown at this stage.
The new Fantasy Linden homes look great with the river running through them. There are many crystals dotted about the sub continent along with a whole range of fantasy flowers. The bridges go really well dotted around.
There are three Fantasy styles in this Fantasy theme including Amberbrooke, Mistbrooke, Rosebrooke and Stonebrooke. The prim limit is 351 prims and the total space for them is 1024 sqm. There are 187 Fantasy regions as of Sunday 15th August 2021 and more regions will most likely be added very soon.
New Water Connection
As many know already there is only one water channel connection to the new Fantasy sub continent at the moment. Dannielles and Glimmer Bay (now showing on the map) are the only two water regions connecting the log homes continent with the fantasy homes continent. Hopefully the moles will add more water regions around the Fantasy sub continent in the days ahead.
Maybe a water region on the east side of the Hanshin region would be great along with more water regions nearby. There is big interest in sailing now since the Bellisseria/SSP first formed almost three years ago now.
Empty Green Regions
SSPE2539, Toad Pool, Fairstone Quarry, Jacksprite and Mirror Pond are empty regions which show up on the map as dark green. It’s not clear at this stage what the moles plan on doing in these yet. It could be used for more new Linden homes, new attractions, new hangout points or rez areas.
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.
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!).
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! -Patch, the Moles and the Second Life Land Operations team
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.
Latest Fantasy LH discussion can be found on the SSP thread on the Second Life Forums, see here
On Saturday 31st July 2021 a new batch of roughly 125 green Fantasy Linden Home regions appeared south of the Bellisseria continent in Second Life. They are all located just east of the Retrograde region in a sub continent layout. The new Fantasy regions have been named already when you zoom into them and are they almost done apparently (going through the QA process).
There is no ETA for when the new Fantasy Linden homes sub continent will open to the public. It should not be that long to wait now. I would imagine all new upcoming Linden Home themes will now be placed south of the Bellisseria continent then moving eastwards over time. There is alot of empty void space nearby.
Nelson Eddy region is the nearest region to the new sub continent and it’s going to be interesting to see how this new sub continent will develop over the months ahead. Hanshin region down south is another closer one.
I will post further updates on my blog very soon about this new sub continent for Fantasy Linden homes.
