First Preview of the new area Campwich and Trailers/Campers


The first batch of new regions opened this morning south of the Bellisseria continent on Monday 16th September. Check out the new Campwich Station, Forest and Lodge. There are trailers/campers nearby to view. The regions will be opening up in phrases.

New track line completed on SSP continent

The Moles are working hard over at the SSP continent creating the next big batch which could launch sometime later this month on the Bellisseria continent. The new trailers and campers will be nearby new small lakes/waterways. The landscape will be very nice to live in I think. Good luck to all those wanting a home there.

This week work started in SSP280 with new trailers/campers being built. It looks like the Moles are working down south. It’s believed the Moles have built a new train station in SSP264 where trains will running regularly hopefully.

It’s unclear if the trains will be automatic around the track ? or will everyone be allowed to rez their own trains ? like in other continents in Second Life. It could be a light rail tram system which would be quieter. Any new train system in Second Life is most exciting to say the least.

A train journey around the trailers/campers area could possibly be very exciting indeed. It’s going to great to see these regions when they get moved over in the weeks ahead. I’ll blog more when new developments occur. I do post updates on my Twitter account (see right).


Pickle Island Progress Update – 7th September 2019

Work is still on-going over at the new Pickle island where new Linden homes and houseboats are being built. New residents have already moved in on the north side and in the weeks ahead more residents will slowly move into the new neighbourhood.

The new water lakes are very nice indeed. It’s worth checking these areas out if you love relaxing in Second Life. In the north west a new underwater area has been built where there is so much to discover. Best to put on a diving suit or something water protected.

New Trailers/Campers Development Area – August Update 2019


Since 11th August the Moles have been working on a new trailers/campers area on the south side of the SSP continent. Once work has been completed the whole area will be transferred across to the south side of the Bellisseria continent which could happen before mid September 2019 at best estimates. 

It’s looking more likely the release is becoming more imminent with every day that passes. I’ve taken snapshots of the development since early August to keep track of it’s progress via the map.

Once the trailers/campers development is completed then it will be moved across to the south west of the Bellisseria continent. The newer regions could be here later this week or during early September 2019.
