On 1st May I created a new poll to see what everyone preferred more in terms of the different house types on the new Bellisseria continent. The poll was open for a week and in total there were 66 votes. Thanks to everyone that voted.
I personally thought that the houseboats would come out on top as there will be many new houseboat areas opening very soon. Traditional Homes won the poll with64% of the total vote. Houseboats only had 38% of the vote. I know some that would like to have both house types.
Today Linden Lab have officially announced the fresh new Linden Homes with new themes and larger options. The first of several planned Linden Home updates launches today exclusive to Premium members apparently.
The second generation of Linden Homes are now finally here. The new continent named Bellisseria has 384 regions currently and it’s to set to get much bigger soon. The old Linden Homes will be phased out over time but there’s no rush just yet.
There is a brand new Linden Homes wiki page full of useful information to get started from signing up to get a Linden Home, home themes, house controllers and much more.
There Goes the Neighborhood (Thankfully!)
One of the many benefits of becoming a Premium Second Life member is access to an automatic waiver of the monthly land fees for a Linden Home or 1024m² tier allotment for use towards a parcel on the Mainland. A pretty incredible perk, but it was time to make it even perkier.
Let’s be honest – those Linden Homes from 2010 were long overdue for some updates and improvements. It was clear a fresh coat of paint and some new landscaping were just not going to make the amount of curb appeal we were shooting for. In fact, it was time to return to the drawing board and start a better-built Linden Home experience, from the ground up – literally.
The first of several planned Linden Home updates launches today – with the introduction of New Linden Homes – exclusive to Premium members. Your new home may be in the mountains, along the shore, or in a rolling landscape of low hills and river valleys, but you’ll also be part of a large community experience, with navigable waterways, a network of roads, and community areas to socialize and have fun
There are two new themed styles in this release – Traditional and Houseboats – and some are twice as big as previous Linden Home offerings.
Depending on the theme chosen home parcels will be either 1024 sq m or 512 sq m apparently.
Unlike the first generation of Linden Homes, which offered themed areas on separate Regions, the New Linden Homes blend themes across the entire continent. Depending on the theme you choose to live in, your home’s parcel may be either 1024 or 512 sq m. Your house might overlook houseboats along the ocean or might be inland in a traditional suburban neighborhood. Wherever you live, you will be within range of recreational and shopping areas and will be able to travel around the continent by car or boat if you wish.
First preview of the new Bellisseria continent, new Linden Homes and new Houseboats.
The new Bellisseria continent opens. It’s expected the new south expansion will happen in the months ahead.
It’s going to be worth getting a new Linden Home for the incredible views and infrastructure that has been built. All brand new! 🙂
Everyone can now see a first preview of the new Linden Homes at the 2019 Home and Garden Expo. Check out the new extra special region called Linden Homes Preview which is now open to the public. From first glance the new Linden Homes look really nice and rather cute.
The initial deployment and launch of these new Linden Homes are still yet to be officially announced. When it does launch the new Linden Homes will be available to all Premium members. These new homes will then be made available on the new SSP continent which may be called Bellisseria.
The SSP continent (Bellisseria) will form a bridge between two of the existing Mainland continents to form a much larger continent which sounds very exciting indeed. The new infrastructure on the new continent will include new docks, beaches, roads, parks, coastlines and much more.
The new Linden Homes will be provided on 1024 sq m parcel, parcels will be made available in themed areas and each parcel will be managed by a mailbox.
The Linden Homes preview region will remain open until Sunday 7th April 2019.
