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.

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

Chalet East Development Expansion Continues


Chalet east development update

The new Chalet east development expansion starts at SSPE2218 going down the east coast through to SSPE2243. There are hundreds of houseboats and chalet homes planned that will be added in the weeks ahead. The map at certain zoom levels doesn’t appear the new regions at the moment. The new SSPE regions are actually there along the east coast of the Chalet sub continent when you explore them.

The Moles are working hard adding new Linden homes along the east coast along with cool new hangout areas. The central part of the Chalet sub continent is still being worked on (yellow squares) and I would imagine on the north coast there will be work soon to expand that out.

A new lighthouse area has been added in SSPE2224 which is worth visiting.
