Loads Of SSP Regions Appear Offline


Loads of SSP regions appear offline

There appears to be loads of offline hidden SSP regions near the SSP pink regions on the map on the west side and more towards the north. According to Abnor Mole all those regions still exist in a saved state and they are all offline to conserve resources until the cloud migration is completed later this year.

It will be interesting to see these offline batches of new regions come online later this year. It’s believed that in the distant near future the Bellisseria continent may connect with other continents.

The Moles are working on a number of new Linden home themes at the moment which will launch most likely within the next 12 months or so. The Moles are building new Linden homes on the new expansion area currently.

The Bellisseria Continent – 9th July 2020

More updates very soon.

Bellisseria Expansion Latest Developments – July 2020 Update


The start of the new railway expansion

The Moles and Lindens have resumed work on the new Bellisseria expansion. They are busy again building the new infrastructure from new homes, new roads, new water areas to new interesting areas to hang out in.

  • Land Selection Page – New Linden Homes will be available here. Please note that you have to upgrade to Premium to have a new home!

During the past few months the Moles have been working on the SL17B regions. They have done a great job this year. Well done to everyone that made this year’s birthday celebrations possible.

The SL17B regions are still open to explore. Don’t forget the LH Demo region showing the new Stilt Linden homes at SL17B is still open to the public until 12th July 2020. Visit the SL17B Enchant region.

What’s New ?

New homes appearing near the water areas (red squares)

I have added a blue line where future new Linden Homes will be built in the weeks and months ahead. There is still a lot of work for the Moles to do before the whole expansion is completed.

Upcoming new homes will be located here

The map below shows the early days of the expansion back in March 2020. As you can see there were loads of empty areas and access was very limited. This was one of the biggest releases to date yet.

The map below is the new expansion as of early July 2020. As you can see the Moles have been adding new Linden homes all over – now there are fewer empty areas. It’s worth exploring the new expansion as it has loads to offer everyone.

It will be great to see it once its all been completed later this year.

SSP Update

For those that don’t know where the new testing SSP regions are located on the map. Please see below. These regions are closed to the public.

The big batch of SSP pink regions and the other nearby regions in the north have not changed much in recent weeks or even months. I will be keeping the lookout now for new visual changes and will blog when new developments occur.

Bellisseria 1 Year Anniversary Celebration


This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is cabin-log_011.jpg

On Wednesday 8th April Patch Linden posted new details about the upcoming Bellisseria 1 year anniversary celebrations in Second Life. The first anniversary celebrations will take place between Friday 17th to Sunday 19th at the Bellisseria Fairgrounds. Everyone is welcome to attend and have fun. 

April 15, 2019 saw the launch of the new Linden Lab premium homes and Bellisseria was born. Soon those that nestled into the comforts of a brand new home found more than just a nice place to live, they found community, discovered new friendships, parties, adventures and so much more.

There will be live DJs, a particle show and a boat parade along with much more. The anniversary is sponsored by Linden Lab, Bellisseria Citizens Group, Bellissseria Entertainers & Events and the Bellis Blues Cafe.

Watch Bellisseria’s 1 Year Anniversary celebration video premiere on 16th April at 9am SLT. Patch Linden said recently it’s taken “more than 1,000 film clips, countless previews and edits, 100 plus volunteers and 60 hours of diligent work, its finally ready”.

New mass of regions added east of of Bellisseria


During the past 24 hours the lab have added roughly 96 new regions east of the Bellisseria continent which are currently closed for public access. It’s believed this new mass could be the new log cabin regions which Linden Lab have been talking about recently.

When you zoom into these new regions there are many cloned groups of regions and most them have been named now. Thousands of new Linden homes will be available very soon.

See below for screenshots that I took today.

Most regions can be seen and others not

These new regions could be released next week or the week after. I’ll post more updates when newer developments happen.

New track line completed on SSP continent


Screenshot of the trailer/camper area on SSP continent – 7th September 2019

The Moles are working hard over at the SSP continent creating the next big batch which could launch sometime later this month on the Bellisseria continent. The new trailers and campers will be nearby new small lakes/waterways. The landscape will be very nice to live in I think. Good luck to all those wanting a home there.

This week work started in SSP280 with new trailers/campers being built. It looks like the Moles are working down south. It’s believed the Moles have built a new train station in SSP264 where trains will running regularly hopefully.

It’s unclear if the trains will be automatic around the track ? or will everyone be allowed to rez their own trains ? like in other continents in Second Life. It could be a light rail tram system which would be quieter. Any new train system in Second Life is most exciting to say the least.

Train station

A train journey around the trailers/campers area could possibly be very exciting indeed. It’s going to great to see these regions when they get moved over in the weeks ahead. I’ll blog more when new developments occur. I do post updates on my Twitter account (see right).


Pickle Island Progress Update – 7th September 2019

Work is still on-going over at the new Pickle island where new Linden homes and houseboats are being built. New residents have already moved in on the north side and in the weeks ahead more residents will slowly move into the new neighbourhood.

The new water lakes are very nice indeed. It’s worth checking these areas out if you love relaxing in Second Life. In the north west a new underwater area has been built where there is so much to discover. Best to put on a diving suit or something water protected.

1 year later since the SSP regions first appeared on the grid


80 SSP regions arrived on 20th August 2018

It’s been one year since the first batch of 80 SSP regions arrived on the grid. Back then all we was told it was a Super Secret Project. Many speculated it could be the start of a new continent or perhaps Linden Realms or Horizons etc.

The day after I first blogged about the new batch of regions a new forums thread named SSP? was started. A year later and the thread is still active with 110+ pages. It’s a good place to get first previews of new developments happening. Soon after that the lab did set up a new Linden Homes sub forum.

The Second Life Grid Survey picked up the new SSP regions on 19th August 2018. I discovered the regions on the map the day after on 20th August 2018 with many others. I can’t believe it’s been a year already. Woooot!!

The excitement happened about a few weeks later when more regions were added. This then became the working grounds for the LDPW Moles to start preparations for the new Bellisseria continent. Yay!

In September 2018 the SSP continent grew from 80 regions to 384 regions. New roads, lakes, housing blocks and houseboat slips were put in from October 2018 onwards.

Terraforming changes – 2nd September 2018
New areas appeared – 1st October 2018

Between October 2018 and January 2019 hundred’s of small dots started to appear across the SSP continent. The new Linden homes foundations were put in. The houseboat slips were built around the outside during this time period.

16th January 2019

The SSP continent started to take shape during February 2019 with even more developments going on. Two new small islands appear on the east coast of the continent along with a new message.

19th February 2019

At the end of March 2019 the top half of the SSP continent was copied over and placed between the Sansara continent and the Jeogeot continent. Tons of water regions connected the north and south of the new continent making one huge super continent.

17th August 2019
Bellisseria Map – 18th August 2019

Between June 2019 – August 2019 the Moles have been working hard on building the central parts of the continent. There are now more Linden homes, houseboats, a new airstrip/fairgrounds area and new underwater areas. More work is planned in the weeks and months ahead.

The Moles are now working on the new Pickle island which is due to be completed next month. The new trailers is being worked on and should be released very soon. The top half of the Bellisseria continent is now online and hopefully the bottom half of the continent will come online before the end of 2019.

Key Moments During The Past Year

It’s been a very busy first year with developments, music events, new groups forming and plenty of discussions on the forums. It’s been great to follow the latest developments and discover new areas. I’m looking forward to see what will happen next.

A very well done job by the Moles and Lindens so far. Woooot!!!
