New West Fantasy Batch Of Regions Arrive


In the past week or so a new batch of Fantasy SSPE regions have been added down the western side of the Fantasy sub continent in Second Life. They appear dark on the world map (see below) from SSPE2736 to SSPE2721. The Moles are working on these new SSPE regions now adding hundreds of more Fantasy Linden Homes which will be available in the weeks ahead.

Further batches of new SSPE regions are set to arrive in the weeks ahead around the coastal areas of the Fantasy and Chalet sub continents. When those developments happen I will blog about it for sure. Stay tuned for that.

Keep a look out for new SSPE regions soon. It’s likely we will hear about the next Linden Home theme later this year and that will probably happen at the SL Christmas Expo 2021. At least another two LH themes during 2022 and maybe into 2023.

New Chalet South Development


Update as of 15th October 2021

New south development – 15th October 2021

The new Chalet south development work started recently and soon hundred’s of new houseboats will be added along with Chalet/Stilts Linden Homes on the coastal areas. The Moles are using a number of coloured squares to keep track of overall progress.

From SSPE2215 to SSPE2248 new Chalet home parcel markers have been created already with more work happening in the days ahead. Beyond SSPE2248 there are more houseboat parcels that have been placed going all the way up the east coast of the Chalet sub continent. These regions are not fully finished yet.

The Moles are definitely adding more new areas faster in recent weeks it appears and it’s going to be great once the chalet sub continent has been completed. I think once the east and south development is finished the Moles will most likely move to adding the west/north development.

New houseboats in SSPE2218

Here are just some of the new areas in the south development.

  • SSPE2253: New Chalet homes and Stilt homes have been added. Region not finished yet.
  • SSPE2252: Possible rez area coming soon. Empty at the moment.
  • SSPE2247: Houseboats will be added very soon
