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.
This week the lab have added five new SSPE regions on the east coast of the Chalet sub continent in Second Life. The new regions are SSPE2218, SSPE2219, SSPE2220, SSPE2221 and SSPE2222. Currently these new regions are closed for public access while the Moles add new Chalet Linden homes and new Houseboats down the east coast.
Cthulhu is being landscaped and is being prepared over the days ahead. The Moles are working on a number of SSPE regions at the moment in the log homes, chalets and fantasy homes sub continents. I think work could be finished before the end of 2021 with new Linden Home themes launching during 2022.
In October 2021 I will blog again on this new SSPE area and any newer developments going on. Stay tuned for that.
Three years ago on 20th August 2018 the first 80 SSP Linden owned regions batch arrived on the grid in Second Life. There was definitely excitement about this new land mass back then. Many speculated that it could of been an extension to Horizons or Linden Realms or the start of a new continent.
The SSP regions doubled in size and then kept on growing into a big continent which opened back on 15th April 2019 named the Bellisseria continent with a handful of Linden home themes to choose from.
Since then Bellisseria has become supermassive featuring many cool Linden Home themes featuring Stilts, Chalets and more recently Fantasy homes. There are more Linden Home themes to come along with more expansion of the Bellisseria continent for at least another year or so.
The Chalet sub continent in the far north east will be finished soon. The new Fantasy Linden homes continent has recently opened just south of the log homes continent and further expansion is expected.
The Moles and the lab have done a great job over the past three years expanding out the Bellisseria continent adding thousands of new Linden homes and adding new interested hang out areas.
I have been tracking progress of the SSP and Bellisseria since mid August 2018 and I will keep on blogging about new developments for some time to come.
More good things to come in the short term and long term. Can’t wait.
More Fantasy regions have now been released since Friday 13th August 2021 for those that want a new Fantasy Linden Home. The fastest way of claiming a new Linden home is through the Second Life land selection page. There is plenty of choice now from traditional, houseboat, camper, stilt home on land, chalet, log home and now fantasy. There are more themes in the works but they are unknown at this stage.
The new Fantasy Linden homes look great with the river running through them. There are many crystals dotted about the sub continent along with a whole range of fantasy flowers. The bridges go really well dotted around.
There are three Fantasy styles in this Fantasy theme including Amberbrooke, Mistbrooke, Rosebrooke and Stonebrooke. The prim limit is 351 prims and the total space for them is 1024 sqm. There are 187 Fantasy regions as of Sunday 15th August 2021 and more regions will most likely be added very soon.
New Water Connection
As many know already there is only one water channel connection to the new Fantasy sub continent at the moment. Dannielles and Glimmer Bay (now showing on the map) are the only two water regions connecting the log homes continent with the fantasy homes continent. Hopefully the moles will add more water regions around the Fantasy sub continent in the days ahead.
Maybe a water region on the east side of the Hanshin region would be great along with more water regions nearby. There is big interest in sailing now since the Bellisseria/SSP first formed almost three years ago now.
Empty Green Regions
SSPE2539, Toad Pool, Fairstone Quarry, Jacksprite and Mirror Pond are empty regions which show up on the map as dark green. It’s not clear at this stage what the moles plan on doing in these yet. It could be used for more new Linden homes, new attractions, new hangout points or rez areas.
On Saturday 31st July 2021 a new batch of roughly 125 green Fantasy Linden Home regions appeared south of the Bellisseria continent in Second Life. They are all located just east of the Retrograde region in a sub continent layout. The new Fantasy regions have been named already when you zoom into them and are they almost done apparently (going through the QA process).
There is no ETA for when the new Fantasy Linden homes sub continent will open to the public. It should not be that long to wait now. I would imagine all new upcoming Linden Home themes will now be placed south of the Bellisseria continent then moving eastwards over time. There is alot of empty void space nearby.
Nelson Eddy region is the nearest region to the new sub continent and it’s going to be interesting to see how this new sub continent will develop over the months ahead. Hanshin region down south is another closer one.
I will post further updates on my blog very soon about this new sub continent for Fantasy Linden homes.
This week the Moles/Lindens have added some more new SSP black themed regions which are now joined together in the SSP development area. SSPNCR appears to be separated (linked with the black theme) away in the north west corner and the SSPSCR region has appeared in the north east corner which I think is the start of a new theme. I’ll be keeping a closer eye on these regions in the weeks ahead.
SSP Development Area Formation Layout
Purple = Chalet regions development
Green = Fantasy regions development
Black = Theme to be announced in the near future
SSPSCR = Possible upcoming theme
These regions are closed off to the public as they are only used by the Moles/Lindens to build upcoming Linden Home themes. In recent months there has not been any major change in formation of these SSP regions until now.
The purple regions below are the Chalet theme regions. I believe the green regions is to do with the Fantasy theme and the black regions theme is still yet to be announced. SSPSCR could be the first region for the next LH theme after the black theme has been announced. We will have to wait and see.
10 new SSP regions have been added recently from SSP3021 to SSP3030 since the start of July 2021. SSP3031 to SSP3035 plus SSP3000 have been on the grid since mid June 2021.
