Patch Linden Gives Update On Linden Home Themes 7, 8 and 9


Today Patch Linden posted a further update on the new Linden Home themes upcoming on the Second Life Forums. Read more here.

Firstly he points out there are 4 floor plans to the new Stilt home theme. There will be two placement options on the home selection page soon. Patch says don’t abandon your homes. 

Here is the schedule for the upcoming new Linden Home themes 6, 7, 8 and 9.

Theme 6

  • Theme 6 officially announced on 23rd June – Stilt homes
  • The Stilt homes are basically done and ready for deployment
  • The lab don’t have have the region capacity to release them right now. The lab are aiming at after the AWS project completes when region capacity becomes available to us sometime later this year

Theme 7

  • Theme 7 is nearly content complete
  • Not set up for deployment yet .

Theme 8

  • Getting ready to enter production

Theme 9

  • Getting ready to enter production

Here is the full update posted by Patch Linden…

As has been mentioned, do not abandon your homes.   A quick clarification on styles and such.  There are 4 floor plans to the Stilt Home theme.  There will be two placement options offered on the home selection page of the site.  One of the selections will find the house placed where there are stairs are anchored to land, so those houses will be either the over land or maybe partially over the water for home placement.  The other option offered will be for a home fully over water (no entry stairs).   This is how you’ll be able to choose witch type of placement you could select.

In general, the Stilt Homes while they are basically done and ready for deployment, we unfortunately do not have the region capacity to release them right now.  We are aiming at after the AWS project completes when region capacity becomes available to us sometime later this year.  In the mean time, we’re already working on the next 3 themes after it.  Theme 7 is nearly content complete, but not set-up for deployment yet.   Then the following themes (8 and 9) are getting ready to enter content production.

Loads of new Linden Home themes to look forward to now. Hopefully by the end of the year themes 6, 7 and possibly 8 may be released.

SL17B Soft Opening Day

At 9am SLT today the SL17B regions opened up to the in-world Second Life Birthday group. There was a fair amount of Moles and Lindens at the SL17B Welcome Area welcoming everyone through the gates. The best way to explore the birthday regions is through the SL17B map boards and the SL17B Pods system.

The lag so far seems to be low but it will probably increase over the weekend then balance out in the weeks ahead.
