12 New Regions Added On The East Side Of Newbrooke Sub Continent


Within the past 24 hours 12 new regions have been added on the east side of the Newbrooke sub continent showcasing Modern Linden Homes. The region names are Jazz Band, Funky Blues, Okay Pop, Prince Charming, Fitz Inn, Picnic Grove, Judge Knott, Bullwinkle, Lavenders Blue, Dot Matrix, Hexadecimal, Shields Brook. They are all showing Black for some reason and will update very soon showing the right visuals.

Work is now underway to complete these regions for release very soon. These new regions are open to the public.

Patch Linden has said this week that “Due to the popularity and dwindling availability of the larger parcel variants, you may see the map update soon with a number of new regions being prepared to increase Newbrooke availability to meet demand. We hope that you continue to enjoy the Newbrooke theme!“.

This means that you can expect to see more new regions being added in the coming weeks to the Newbrooke sub continent as demand grows. It’s probably going to be double the size before Easter arrives. There is plenty of room to grow on the west, south and north side of the Newbrooke sub continent.

Newbrooke Covenant Update

On Friday 11th March 2022 Patch Linden posted a Newbrooke covenant update including two additional lines (outlined in bold below).

Hi Everyone!

As a follow-up to the conversation some of you may have noticed on the forums, we are further clarifying the covenant with two new additional lines:

* Additions to Newbrooke houses must be in the Newbrooke style (flat roof shipping container homes) and blend in seamlessly with the neighborhood theme.  Garage and room additions are permitted while maintaining architectural consistency with the theme (eg. roof line, colors, trim, etc).
* Newbrooke homes should not be modified architecturally with exterior add-ons, such as roof altering additions or changes that are out of theme.  Items such as roof top gardens, decks, porch and overhang extensions are permitted. 


Additionally, we have been noticing people are rezzing outside of their parcel boundaries more than usual on Newbrooke. While we’re not going to be hypercritical and measure down to the millimeter, we do want to remind you that per the New Linden Homes Covenant, public space outside your parcel lines is just that: space for the public. Please take extra care not to extend objects outside of your parcel in a way that will block, wall off, or “claim” public areas for yourself to the exclusion of other residents. Items such as these could be subject to object returns upon report/discovery.

Current Progress Update

  • The Moles are still working on the Chalet sub continent and the Fantasy sub continents adding more Linden Homes and adding the finishing touches due to be completed within the next month or so at best estimates.
  • Work has already started on the new 12 added regions on the east side of the Newbrooke sub continent.
  • No updates yet on when the north side of the logs home continent will be finished or the west side of the chalet sub continent

What’s Next ?

The Asian theme seems likely to be next Linden Home theme to be announced I think as it’s the only theme from the original old Linden Home continents that has not been duplicated yet in the Bellisseria continent. It may be something different like sci-fi, tinys, ancient, desert, ultimate Retro etc. We might hear something at VWBPE 2022 which is only three weeks away now (31st March to 2nd April 2022).

What do you think the next Linden Home theme should be ?

NEW: Linden Lab will be announcing details about Premium Plus before end of March 2022. Q2 2022 starts 1st April through until 30th June 2022 so I would imagine it will launch in this time window. This may relate to the red theme colour SSP regions.

We will have to wait and see what happens.

Red SSP regions as of 12th March 2022

More development updates will be posted very soon on my blog.

Red SSP Regions Double In Size


Red SSP Regions – 27th February 2022

During the weekend a whole lot of new red SSP regions were added in the SSP development area. The red SSP regions relates to the Modern Linden Home theme (Newbrooke) due to be released very soon. This is the size it gets normally when a release is about to happen. Keep a watch out on the Second Life Forums under the Linden Homes section.

Over the past few months more and more red SSP regions have joined up together. These regions are closed to the public and are used for Linden Home developments.

See the expansion progress below….

Modern Regions Development Now underway


Modern Sub Continent – 11th February 2022

The Modern regions arrived on 6th February and since then the Moles have been building new roadways, lake areas and new Modern homes it appears. There is one region separating the chalet sub continent with the Modern sub continent in the far south. There are a lot of red squares at the moment and they are all going through many checks in order to get them ready for release very soon.

I predict the Modern regions will be released and open to the public before the end of February 2022 if you go on previous Linden Home release trends. I would expect the region mass will increase over the next few weeks and it’s possible that the work on the coastlines will start before Easter.

Latest New Developments as of 11th February 2022

  • The Newbank region looks like a new community center area or a shopping complex perhaps
  • There is a pond lake in the Home Grown region and many bridges in many areas
  • SSP3504, SSP3505, SSP3509, SSP3510, SSP3514 and SSP3515 regions have been added to the red SSP regions block

Releases Update

On Wednesday 9th February Patch Linden said this on the Second Life Forums “our release schedule isn’t tied to any event, or time/date for that matter at all typically.   What matters to us is that when it is done and ready, then it will be released“.

Possible community centre in the Newbank region – 11th February 2022
Water lake in Home Grown region – 11th February 2022
Six more regions added in the red SSP block – 11th February 2022

I will blog more about further developments in the next week or so. Stay tuned on my blog for that and please subscribe to stay updated. Thanks 🙂

A Closer View Of The Modern Regions Batch


As reported this week 49 new Modern Linden Home regions arrived on the grid and now they are all being prepared for the big release happening very soon. This week there has been an increase in Mole/Linden activity happening in various regions and on the red SSP regions on the other side of the grid.

It’s very exciting to see this big development happening now. I can’t wait to see if these group of regions below highlighted will grow further outwards or stay the same size in the weeks ahead. The connection bridge with the Chalet sub continent will take place very soon.

On the north side of the Chalet sub continent there is still more work in the pipeline including new coastlines, new Chalet homes, new hangout areas and hopefully plenty of water region connections with the Modern regions batch.

  • No dates have been announced yet on the opening or the bridge connection.

The new Modern region names are now visible on the world map when logged into Second Life. Check out all the interesting region names below.

Here is updated overall photo below of the well known and famous Bellisseria continent as of 1pm SLT on Tuesday 8th February 2022. As you can see the start of the Modern regions are already showing up on the map. Yay! 🙂

Stay tuned on my blog for more updates soon and feel free to subscribe on the right hand side. Please spread the word 🙂

Modern Linden Home Themed Regions Arrive On The Grid


New Modern regions now in the grid

Over 40 new Modern Linden Home regions have arrived on the grid during the past 24 hours. They are all located on the north west side of the Chalet sub continent. This was a surprise to many as thought they would appear next month at the earliest.

The Modern theme was announced at last year’s SL Christmas Expo that included a Linden Reveal region to preview the new theme. Two months later and at long last the regions have arrived.

As of Monday 7th February 2022 there are 49 new Modern regions. The infrastructure and new homes will be added very soon. I think the regions are closed for public access in the short time. It should not be that long now until the Modern regions are connected with the chalet sub continent.

More updates soon.

Linden Reveal Region Shut Down For An Update


Just after 10am SLT this morning Patch Linden has posted an update via the Second Life Forums on the current status of the Linden Reveal region which is now showcasing the newest Linden Home theme Modern homes. From the feedback the lab has received during the past 24 hours the lab have decided to shut down the reveal region for an update.

It should not last very long though as the reveal region will be back Really Soon after the Moles have “put some touches on it to make sure our imagination is still reflected in our work”.

From the sounds of things something has gone wrong because I can’t remember this happening in previous year launches. Hopefully the lab/moles will be able to sort this out as soon as possible.

Patch Linden Full UpdateSource

We have heard your feedback and we have decided to shut down the reveal region for an update.  It seems that this may not have been representative of our best foot forward approach we have taken with the homes over the past.  So I am here to make sure that everyone knows that we have not changed course, lessened our quality, mindfulness or retracted any of the heart and soul we put in to making these homes, themes and community building areas.  

Proof of the fact that I feel less present is actually due to how busy we are with continuing to do more, which is taking more and more of my time.  I am still present, we all do still participate in everything we can in world within Bellisseria, and we are always trying to find new ways to engage on everything we can, including some great Resident run efforts and projects that I know many are involved in.  

That said, the reveal region will be back Really Soon™ after we’ve put some touches on it to make sure our imagination is still reflected in our work. 
Thank you everyone from the team and I for being involved!  ❤️

I will post more updates when I hear more.

Poll: Do You Like The “Newbrooke” Linden Home Theme Preview ?


I have set up this new poll to see if everyone likes the “Newbrooke” Linden Home theme preview which was revealed on Monday 6th December 2021 at the SL Christmas Expo in Second Life.

This poll will be closed on 28th December 2021. The results of this poll will be published soon after on my blog.

Modern Homes Is The Next Linden Home Theme


First Preview

The new Linden Home theme is Modern which was officially revealed to the public this afternoon on the Linden Reveal region at the 2021 SL Christmas Expo. The official theme name is “Newbrooke” and it’s many are saying it’s Meadowbrook 2.0.

  • The Linden Homes Preview link on the Second Life Destination Guide has just gone live today
  • There may be more than 30 homes per region when released

Don’t forget that the Linden Reveal region is just a demo of what’s to come and this is not a full representation of the finished production regions. There are some larger and some smaller Modern homes located on the preview region with a few swimming pools, seating areas, rez zones and more.

Modern Home Types

  • Aldridge – 1024 – 2 storey
  • Bradbury – 1024 – 1 storey
  • Coniston – 1024 – 1 storey
  • Denver – 512 – 1 storey
  • Ender – 512 – 2 storey
  • Faraday – 512 – 1 storey
  • Gatewood – 512 – 2 storey
  • Heaton – 1024 – 2 storey

The feedback has been very mixed inworld and on the Second Life forums Linden Homes section. I think this may be a good upgrade for those that have a Linden Home on the old Linden Home continents and the Moles have said this is a work in progress until the big release happens soon.

Coming Soon!

  • There will be colour options coming soon
  • Exteriors will have colour, trim types, interior walls and other customization options
  • There are going to be 512 and 1024 with each having a complement of styles
