The Moles and Lindens have resumed work on the new Bellisseria expansion. They are busy again building the new infrastructure from new homes, new roads, new water areas to new interesting areas to hang out in.
Land Selection Page– New Linden Homes will be available here. Please note that you have to upgrade to Premium to have a new home!
During the past few months the Moles have been working on the SL17B regions. They have done a great job this year. Well done to everyone that made this year’s birthday celebrations possible.
The SL17B regions are still open to explore. Don’t forget the LH Demo region showing the new Stilt Linden homes at SL17B is still open to the public until 12th July 2020. Visit the SL17B Enchant region.
What’s New ?
I have added a blue line where future new Linden Homes will be built in the weeks and months ahead. There is still a lot of work for the Moles to do before the whole expansion is completed.
The map below shows the early days of the expansion back in March 2020. As you can see there were loads of empty areas and access was very limited. This was one of the biggest releases to date yet.
The map below is the new expansion as of early July 2020. As you can see the Moles have been adding new Linden homes all over – now there are fewer empty areas. It’s worth exploring the new expansion as it has loads to offer everyone.
It will be great to see it once its all been completed later this year.
For those that don’t know where the new testing SSP regions are located on the map. Please see below. These regions are closed to the public.
The big batch of SSP pink regions and the other nearby regions in the north have not changed much in recent weeks or even months. I will be keeping the lookout now for new visual changes and will blog when new developments occur.
I will post further development blog updates in the months ahead.
Linden Lab have been pretty quiet about the next new Linden Homes theme #6. Hopefully during next weeks SL17B Meet The Lindens live talks from 22nd – 26th June we will hear more about what’s coming next.
So far we have had Traditional, Houseboats, Trailers/Campers, Victorian homes and Log homes. I’m reading on the forums it could be a beach bungalow theme, beach house, sea related or something near to that. What do you think the next Linden Home theme will be ?
On the SL17B Map Boards dotted around it shows a LH Demo Area which is currently located on the far west of the SL17B regions currently closed to the public named SL17B Enchant. There are 10 SL17B Water regions that are closed but are they are right next door to the exhibitors builds.
It’s believed that the SL17B Enchant region will move into place very soon on the west side of the SL17B Exhilarate region. It’s just unclear what the water regions will be used for though at this point.
Once the LH Demo Area is open to the public then hopefully we will see what the next Linden Home theme will be. I would imagine then it’s going to take a few months or so for the Moles to release/rollout the new regions. These will probably be the new SSP pink regions I would imagine.
On 1st April Patch Linden announced the new release of Log Homes on the official Second Life forums. The Mole team have now added 4, 828 new Linden Homes for everyone to move into. It’s the biggest release to date spreading over 230 regions which is located east of the Bellisseria continent.
The new log homes are now available on the land selection page. Good luck.
The new Log Homes features…
Four styles of Log Homes
Vast rural regions with stunning scenery, including giant redwoods.
Additional Railway accessibility (coming soon)
More Rez Zones for your boats, horses, bikes, golf carts, ATVs, tractors…
A new community center is coming very soon along with more new regions full of different types of homes. Its great news the Moles have finally released these new homes.
Its going to be fun to explore the new continent in the days and weeks ahead.
The 9th annual SL Christmas Expo opens officially in Second Life on Thursday 5th through until Sunday 15th December 2019. This year the expo will feature over 170 merchants, a snowman contest, gaches, raffles, a kids fashion runway show, christmas entertainment and much more. The first ever Ebbe Linden Bear will be revealed on 5th December and will be available for a L$250 donation to the American Cancer Society.
Everyone’s attention will probably go the 4th unveil for the new Linden Homes that will launch very soon. The good news is that one lucky bidder will receive a 6 month Premium Membership and a 4th Edition of Linden Home with exclusive seasonal content located in a special parcel just for them.
The Linden Reveal region north of the SL Christmas Expo regions is worth keeping your eyes on. The homes have been kept under the radar in recent weeks. Apparently pictures and a teleport will be posted here sometime on Thursday 5th December 2019. Check often throughout the day.
There are 12 regions for the SL Christmas Expo 2019 this year. Check out the first preview of the map of the regions below.
