This week a new batch of pink SSP regions were added on the grid. There is a total of 50 regions under development from SSP1501 to SSP1550. The moles could be doing anything here from testing/planning/building for the next Linden home style. It will be interesting to see what comes next now.
What Linden home themes would you like to see launched next ?
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.
These new regions could be released next week or the week after. I’ll post more updates when newer developments happen.
According to the latest weekly report published on Sunday 15th September the year to date for net Private Estate growth now stands at 88 regions which equals 0.5% growth since the start of 2019. This is great news to report on for once because in previous years the grid had been declining for some time.
There has been more interest in Private Estates this year than in previous years and that’s always a good thing. I think this has to do something with the reduced land prices in Second Life that the lab rolled out earlier in the year. It’s definitely helped from looking at the grid numbers below. Hopefully Private Estates will continue to show more net growth in the last three months of 2019.
The total area of Second Life is now 1594.56 (KM).
Stats as of 15th September:
Total Main Grid Regions: 24, 331
Private Estates: 16, 208
Linden Owned: 8, 123
Back in June 2019 I reported that most of the growth came from Linden Owned regions for the new Bellisseria continent which opened back in mid April 2019. More new regions are expected to arrive in the weeks and months ahead to complete the new Bellisseria continent. Probably around 50 – 100+ Linden Owned regions before the end of the year. If the lab shuts down the older Linden Home continents and the SSP continent it will effect the grid stats deeply. A big shock to say the least.
Stats back on 2nd June 2019:
Total Main Grid Regions: 24, 147
Private Estates: 16, 130
Linden Owned: 8, 017
It will be great to see it go from 0.5% to 1% positive growth before the end of this year. For now it’s good to say the Second Life economy is healthy and it’s recovering at long last.
Since 11th August the Moles have been working on a new trailers/campers area on the south side of the SSP continent. Once work has been completed the whole area will be transferred across to the south side of the Bellisseria continent which could happen before mid September 2019 at best estimates.
It’s looking more likely the release is becoming more imminent with every day that passes. I’ve taken snapshots of the development since early August to keep track of it’s progress via the map.
Once the trailers/campers development is completed then it will be moved across to the south west of the Bellisseria continent. The newer regions could be here later this week or during early September 2019.
