Log Homes Continent New Developments – September 2020 Update


New Linden homes on the south coast

The Moles are still working on the log homes continent and there has been some new developments. In the past few weeks work has started to pick up again across the log homes continent especially on the south coast with new log homes, new waterfalls, new rez zones and much more.

I have highlighted the red area above where the new homes have been built in the past week or so. The blue areas is where the next batch of new homes will be in the weeks ahead.

Check out the new lighthouse in SSPE1149 which looks really nice. I love the waterfall area and how the moles are transforming the nearby regions. Great job! 🙂

The new lighthouse arrives

Possible Water Expansion Coming Soon

There are new blue waterway spacer guide objects along the side of the east coast of the log homes continent. I wonder if this is for a future water expansion or perhaps something else ?.

The SSP83X region looks a little different this month with a new water area located in the north east corner. Could this be the new Stilt home layout ?

Some interesting new developments so far this month and as you can see work has certainly picked up again across the Bellisseria continent. The Moles will be adding more train tracks and new train stations in the weeks ahead.

More updates soon! 🙂

The reasons for the closure is not really known at this point. The good news is that The Shelter building will be archived by Linden Lab very soon. The Shelter will remain inworld for as long as Second Life is still online for. The Shelter group will remain in place however for all new members who want to join they will no longer be allowed in the group going forward now.

This is the official group notice that was recently sent out to all members of The Shelter group in Second Life. It’s a shame that no one can take over the shelter and keep it running.

There is a discussion happening on the Second Life forums for those that want to share their memories from the past 16 years.

The Shelter is closing down at the end of August 2020


The Shelter – 26th August 2020

It looks like the Shelter in Second Life will be sadly closing down at the end of August 2020 after 16 years of operating. Apparently the Shelter build is going to be preserved by Linden Lab as a heritage site. There will be a closing event at 7pm SLT on Sunday 30th August 2020 for the last dance. The Shelter is one of the oldest resident-ran help organisation’s in Second Life since 20th August 2004.

The Shelter was a good place for newbies to get started in Second Life, get freebies, hang out during live music events and much more. There used to be volunteers who helped new residents out every day.

It will be sad when the shelter shuts down as it will be another big loss in Second Life. If anyone has more info about this closure (the main reasons etc) please let me know. I will update my blog when I hear more.

YavaScript Pod Tours Gets Support From Linden Lab


Patch Linden has shared a update on the YavaScript Pod Tours within the past hour which is very good news.

Linden Lab will now be working more closely together going forward and helping to support the pod tours system including further expansion.

For the immediate future the pod tour system should be retuning back to normal. I think this the best news possible to resolve this situation. Well done Linden Lab.

Yay 🙂
