Hmm, very abnormal so, maybe Abnor Mole did it.

I have reasons to assume that it was Squishy Mole.
Call it a hunch 🙂

"Würfel Hose" is German and means "dice trousers" ... makes no sense either does it? ;)

 

Like it makes sense that Pizza Hut restaurants in Germany still use that name even though it translates to "Pizza Hat."

And you can be sure: half the customers in Germany think exactly that is meant: Pizza HAT

... especially since some of the restaurants have roofs that resembly Chinese hats. *lol*

You're trying to be too exact. It sounds like a mangled bilingual pun.  "Mole" in German is Maulwurf, and the syllable "wurf" sounds sort of like the syllable "waff" in the English word "waffle".  So, a "Würffel Hoose" is a phonic play on words .... a little house for moles.  It helps that the Waffle House is a popular breakfast spot in parts of the USA. The umlaut is extra garnish.  BTW, the Swedish Chef would not say this.  Until very recently, the Swedish alphabet did not include the letter "W", and even now it is not used in many places.  Still, "Würffel"  has the sort of lilting sound that could sound Swedish, in the right mouth. I think it's just a nice game making use of coincidental similarities among our languages, ein glücklisher Wurf. 😁

There needs to be a “babbler” for SL that translates voice to Swedish Chef.

You remember Babbler!  😊  That was a lovely translator.  It disappeared sometime around 2010, but was the standard till then.  I still have a handy Tourist Phrasebook that came with it, for those times when you were trapped without Babbler.  Here a few useful multilingual gems to practice:

That is a pretty dress. You remind me of my uncle.
Eso es un vestido bonito. Usted me recuerda mi tío.

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck, if a woodchuck could chuck wood?
Wieviel Holz würde ein Waldmurmeltier werfen, wenn ein Waldmurmeltier Holz werfen könnte?

My friend likes to dance. May I introduce you to him?
Mon ami aime danser. Est-ce que je peux vous presenter à lui?

What pretty shoes! Are they yours?

We will see how brave you are when I return with my cousin, Rocco.
Vedremo quanto coraggioso siete quando ritorno con il mio cugino, Rocco.

Exactly!! THAT's what I meant!

And I guess that's why they didn't change the name to "Pizza Hütte" which wouldn't sound very inviting.

I did not know about Maulwurf, my German is clearly not that strong :D

Found something new - some sims below the working area - and already partly in the works. These photos are from  SSPE230 (down south on the map, where the "eye" had some missing sims) - also "parcels size greater than 1024 parcels".

I'm afraid that in spite of the hovertext, it does not mean what it appears to mean. 
These squares (green for townhomes, blue for houseboats, and yellow for campers) are scripted and when rezzed will detect the size of the parcel it is sitting on.
However, no parcels, other than for the houseboats, have been created yet, so the square has detected a huge parcel, larger than 1024sqm.

And how do I know that these yellow squares are for campers? Because these prims are named "Camping Parcel 16 X 32". And since 16x32  equals 512, we also know that these are going to be 512sqm parcels.

As for the green boxes, those are path markers, again, their names say so. 🙂

I do wonder how the Moles are going to make this issue work. That raised border exists on the North side and on the East side of the region. There are no adjoining regions south or west, but when there are, they too will probably have raised borders.
Correction, to the south will be another copied and pasted region, that will fit like a glove, but that region too will see the same issue.

Those looks like trailers, and the hovering text is probably wrong? maybe is a message that appears if parcel isnt 1024, and surely enough, campers are not 1024, they are half.
