New Costner Bay Airstrip Area Discovered


First landing at the new airstrip

A new airstrip has appeared in the Costner Bay area on the new Bellisseria continent featuring a huge open area and docking point. It’s not yet known what else will be added here at this stage.

At the moment there are no rezzing areas so it’s probably best to travel in from somewhere nearby. The area does not yet show on the map. I would expect it will show within the next day or so.

More new Linden Homes and Houseboats have been built within the past week. I would imagine the third batch will be released before the end of June 2019.

New airstrip, boat rez zones and car rez zones added on Bellisseria continent


Brand New Areas Now Open

One of the early morning landings today

The Moles have been pretty busy over at the new Bellisseria continent this week creating new rezzing zones for the community to enjoy. These new areas include a brand new airstrip tarmac runway suitable for light aircraft which comes with a rezzing zone.

There are new boat rezzing zones next to the lighthouses around the continent and new car rezzing zones dotted around. More is planned in the weeks ahead.

Here are the rezzing zone parcel locations which you may find very useful to keep.

For the latest updates check out the new Linden Homes section on the Second Life Forums as things are moving pretty quickly each week.

Heterocera, Sansara, Bellisseria and Jeogeot forms one super massive continent in Second Life


The super massive continent in Second Life

This week the lab added a number of water regions north and south of the new Bellisseria continent (new Linden Homes) in Second Life. You can now go straight from Heterocera to the Sansara continent (top) through the new Bellisseria continent (middle) then down to the Jeogeot continent (bottom) or the other way around. This means you can now fly, walk, boat or even walk between all four continents now.

  • North Side: Grand Banks, Lobster Pot, Marianas Trench, Magellan Deep and Albatross Shoals

  • South Side: Delby Depths and Harmonious Sea

Well done Linden Lab for making this possible! 🙂

New Linden Homes have officially launched


All Hours

Today Linden Lab have officially announced the fresh new Linden Homes with new themes and larger options. The first of several planned Linden Home updates launches today exclusive to Premium members apparently.

The second generation of Linden Homes are now finally here. The new continent named Bellisseria has 384 regions currently and it’s to set to get much bigger soon. The old Linden Homes will be phased out over time but there’s no rush just yet.

There is a brand new Linden Homes wiki page full of useful information to get started from signing up to get a Linden Home, home themes, house controllers and much more.

There Goes the Neighborhood (Thankfully!)

One of the many benefits of becoming a Premium Second Life member is access to an automatic waiver of the monthly land fees for a Linden Home or 1024m² tier allotment for use towards a parcel on the Mainland. A pretty incredible perk, but it was time to make it even perkier.

Let’s be honest – those Linden Homes from 2010 were long overdue for some updates and improvements. It was clear a fresh coat of paint and some new landscaping were just not going to make the amount of curb appeal we were shooting for. In fact, it was time to return to the drawing board and start a better-built Linden Home experience, from the ground up – literally.

The first of several planned Linden Home updates launches today – with the introduction of New Linden Homes – exclusive to Premium members. Your new home may be in the mountains, along the shore, or in a rolling landscape of low hills and river valleys, but you’ll also be part of a large community experience, with navigable waterways, a network of roads, and community areas to socialize and have fun

There are two new themed styles in this release – Traditional and Houseboats – and some are twice as big as previous Linden Home offerings.

Depending on the theme chosen home parcels will be either 1024 sq m or 512 sq m apparently.

Unlike the first generation of Linden Homes, which offered themed areas on separate Regions, the New Linden Homes blend themes across the entire continent. Depending on the theme you choose to live in, your home’s parcel may be either 1024 or 512 sq m. Your house might overlook houseboats along the ocean or might be inland in a traditional suburban neighborhood. Wherever you live, you will be within range of recreational and shopping areas and will be able to travel around the continent by car or boat if you wish.

The new Bellisseria continent opens. It’s expected the new south expansion will happen in the months ahead.

It’s going to be worth getting a new Linden Home for the incredible views and infrastructure that has been built. All brand new! 🙂
