New SSPE Extension Created Linking Log Regions To The Stilt Regions


New Stilt regions have arrived

During the past week or so the Moles have created a whole bunch of new SSPE regions linking the log homes continent with the new Stilt homes sub land areas. The new regions range from SSPE1739 to SSPE1747. It’s important to note that the Moles are still building on them and are not finished yet. It will be interesting to see these new regions develop in the days and weeks ahead.

See at the bottom for the latest SSP news relating to whats ahead.

SSPE1740 – check out these new regions
SSPE1743 – view looking north
SSPE1742 – view looking north east
SSPE1745 – new Stilt homes coming soon
SSPE1747 – new homes coming soon

SSP News – (26th February 2021)

The Moles have added five new SSP regions just east of the purple SSP regions which are closed for public access. These new regions could be apart of the next upcoming Linden Home theme or maybe for another project they are working on. We will have to wait and see.

The big batch of pink SSP regions are no longer on the grid. 

New Regions – SSP2532 to SSP2500
Purple Regions – SSP2001 to SSP2040 plus SSP2005

The Moles Continue To Make Progress On The Log Homes Railway


In the past week or so the Moles have extended the railway track from SSPE1162 (from the tunnel) to SSPE1165. I have added two white lines on the map above where the newly added railway track has been placed. On the map the long green line is where the Moles will be adding new railway tracks.

This part of the railway line is still closed for the public. In the weeks ahead more new railway track will be added going further up north eastwards. The Moles have added more new Linden homes nearby and around the central areas/coastline recently.

Bugs bunny looks at the new railway track curving around into the trees.

The new railway adventure awaits….to be continued.

Log Homes Expansion March 2020 vs October 2020


The new railway line expansion launching soon

It’s been six months since Patch Linden first announced the new release of Log Homes via the official Second Life forums. The first batch included 4, 828 new Linden Homes (over 230 regions) and since then the Moles have added thousands more new Linden Homes on the log homes continent.

I am back, and this time with another staggering 4,828 new Linden Homes ready for your ownership! The theme, as many of you saw in the ACS Demo region, is Log Homes.

– Patch Linden – 1st April 2020

The Randelsham Tree House was added in late April 2020 which is located in the Randelsham Forest region. A nice community hangout place surrounded by lovely scenery. The Moles are working on expanding the railway line further eastwards which is very exciting indeed. I will post more updates on this soon.

Log Homes Railway Version 1 = July 2020

Here is what the log homes continent looked like back in late March 2020. There were loads of clone versions of the log homes all over the place. Access from the west was not possible for a while until the log homes opened to the public. Back then there were loads of empty areas and was not much to view.

Log Homes – 27th March 2020
Log Homes – Early April 2020

Here is the latest new photo of the log homes continent as of 1st October 2020. The Moles have made great progress in six months as you can see below with thousands of new Log homes built and more connections made compared with the map from March 2020.

  • Red = Upcoming areas that will be built on soon
  • White = Areas that are being worked on now
Log Homes continent – 1st October 2020

I would say the log homes continent is roughly 80% done so far. As everyone knows the log homes continent is going to take another month or so to complete. It’s going to be amazing once the Moles finish because then the next phrase will start expanding the continent out futher.

It’s going to be great when the new Stilt Linden homes go live on the grid later this year hopefully. I am looking forward to the other new themes in the works which have not been unveiled yet.

Log Homes Railway Track Progress From SSPE1460 To SSPE1457


Red Lines = New Railway Track

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.

Many signal points ahead in SSPE1459 leading into the trees area
More SLRR placeholders in SSPE1458
New train & road crossing barrier in SSPE1458
A new buffer stop and train station in SSPE1457

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.

Log Homes Expansion Map Comparison – March 2020 vs July 2020


Back in mid March 2020 I blogged about the new mass of regions added east of Bellisseria which turned into the log homes expansion. Since then the Moles have added thousands of new Linden homes along the new road networks, new relaxing areas, new waterways and a railway line that is still being worked on.

The log homes were released back in early April 2020 where Patch Linden announced that 4, 828 new Linden Homes were ready to claim. This was the biggest release to date spreading over 230 regions.

If you look at the comparison maps below you can hopefully see the differences between the both of them. The gaps are getting smaller and smaller it appears now. Hopefully in another three to six months the whole log homes continent will be completed.

Mid March 2020
24th July 2020

It’s actually been interesting to watch this log homes continent grow in size and see the development of it all since March. Four months later and work is still continuing around the log homes continent. Good progress is being made with loads of different project goals happening all at once.

First regions arrived back in mid March 2020

Going forward it’s going to be interesting where the new upcoming themes will be placed either to the north or down in the south. More regions are expected to arrive later this year when Second Life moves into the cloud. The lab have already started moving regions into the cloud (AWS).

I will post more updates very soon on the latest Bellisseria developments.
