Abnor Mole has kindly added a new airstrip in the Bergheim region where new Chalet Linden Homes are being built now. There is a small aircraft rez zone and small bridge leading above the new railway tunnel which heads towards the Chalets. It’s worth pointing out this area and nearby regions are still being worked on by the Moles.
With this new addition of this new airstrip in the Bergheim region it now brings the total airstrips number to three around the Bellisseria continent. There are outside continent airports like one located north in the Meighen region and one airport in the south within the Jinsil region. There is another airport in the north east in the Yuri region. It’s long distance flying and it’s great flying over all the different Linden home themes.
On 5th May I opened a new poll called Which Linden Home Theme Is Your Favourite In 2021? and the final results are in. The most popular choice was Stilts with 53 votes (42.06%) followed by Chalets with 19 votes (15.08%) in second place with Victorian getting just 14 votes (11.11%). I guess this is a quick snapshot of what’s popular right now.
Last year the most popular choice for Linden Home themes was Log Cabins followed by Houseboats in second place then Trailers/Campers in third place. This year Log Cabins, Houseboats and Trailers/Campers have had less of the votes share.
The old Linden Home themes did not do very well at all this year with just one or two votes between them. Last year they came bottom of the poll options. I think Linden Lab needs to either improve the old Linden Home themes, merge the regions together with the new Linden Homes or pull the plug on them.
2021 Poll Results
2020 Poll Results
I will create another poll like this next year to see what’s popular for Linden Home themes.
There are many nice Linden Home themes now then there was a few years ago so I would love to know which Linden Home theme is your most favourite one in 2021. When the poll results come out it will be a quick snapshot of what’s popular right now.
Last year Log Cabins was the top choice for favourite Linden Home theme for 2020. See the poll results here. Houseboats came in second place followed by Trailers/Campers in third place. It will be interesting to see how the new Linden Themes compare.
Poll options include the old Linden Home themes and all the recent new Linden Home themes. The poll results will be published on my blog before the end of May 2021.
The next Linden Home reveal will most likely be after SL18B has finished in early July 2021. The wait is almost over.
It looks like Abnor Mole has added some new tropical beach waves in SSPE1768 recently which looks really nice. The Moles continue to add new Stilt Linden Homes in nearby regions. Once this area has been completed I think it will be another cool area to hang out with friends.
I really do love the palm trees around SSPE1756 and other areas that the Moles are adding now. For those wondering what the blue boxes are surrounding the these new Linden homes it’s the Linden Homes Stilt Homes Self Centering Bounding Box V2.4.
When looking around the area there are region centerpoint markers 2.0 dotted some in red and some in green which the Moles use as a main marker to work out where the center is of each region for region developments.
As you can see above on the map there are many empty areas of land where more new Stilts will be added very soon. I will revisit this area in the weeks ahead to see whats been added in a upcoming blog post.
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.
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.
