Starting today the new Linden Homes will be released one region at a time. The releases will start on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Trains are coming to the new continent in the near future which will be linked with the SLRR. The first community events space called Bellissseria Fairgrounds will be used for events happening around the 4th of July. The new area has already got an airstrip, a big statue and soon there will be a new water taxi service set up. New small commercial opportunities may be coming to Bellisseria continent sometime later this year.

Hello!

I have an update to our release process I want to share with everyone.  As I alluded to here, we are going to try and change our release strategy for a little while to see if a particular process works better for everyone involved, including many of you who have been very patiently waiting for one of the new Linden Homes.   

Many of you have already been witness to the new process unfolding in front of you whether you knew it or not.   Those regions that have been called out in various places such as New Hamsterdam down to SSPE136 (soon to be officially named).  We did this for multiple reasons, mostly in an effort to show all of you some of the process we go through in real-time to make these beautiful new regions come to life, and give a glimpse into the timeline involved.  

Starting today, we’re going to try to release a region’s worth of new Linden Homes on a regular cadence.  We’re aiming to try for a region per every other day, but as we can not control all the factors involved in the lengthy process, we may have some gaps which could last anywhere between a day to several days and especially on the weekends.  This will also mean that I will not update this post with each region release, but keep it for larger release updates, announcements, news, information, etc.

This will be followed by the future initial release of the new Campers & Trailers theme that has also now been revealed here at SL16B.  This release will be large-scale like other releases we have done in the past, and then also potentially follow the release process I’ve outlined above.

Next up, is an area that is going to be our first community events space called the Bellisseria Fairgrounds!  Our vision for this space is to grant communal access to an area that is clear and ready for set-up of an event.  We are going to supply the outlying basic infrastructure which includes water taxi access to the main continent, an airstrip and landing pad.  We will have a scheduling calendar and process in place where the space can be reserved in advance.  The first events already in line for use of this space will be around the 4th of July holiday coming up.  More information to come about how the reservation process will work in the near future.

Spread the word.
