The New Linden Homes Update Post


Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

In theme with posting updates about Linden Homes progress, we have a systems update for you:

We’ve fixed the issue of Residents with the surname “.resident” not being able to be added to the whitelist and controls, as well as the control panel’s difficulties in retaining the owner whitelist settings when changing homes. This will improve your ease of management for who can access your property.

Additionally, we have implemented the ability for parcel owners to reset their house controller scripts (the mailbox or life ring for rezzing a different house) should a Resident encounter an issue generating the house selection menu.  If you do not receive a house selection menu when you click your House Controller, simply click on and hold the Controller for at least two seconds to reset the scripts. This should correct for most issues of this nature.  If the problem persists after attempting this, please contact support.

The updated models of the Linden Homes control panels and house controllers have been installed into Traditional Homes and Houseboats across the Bellisseria continent.

Hey folks!

As that special time of year approaches, full of joy, fun and festivities, we would like to celebrate along with you. As a special feature to help with your seasonal decorations, we have now included snow caps and Winter lights in your Linden Home content packs for Traditional, Houseboat, and Trailer homes!

The content packs are available via your house controllers. Please remember to adhere to the 🎄 Seasonal Content and Decoration Guidelines 🦃

An update to our release schedule - We’ve been hard at work on releasing regions and as I’m sure many have noticed, our new “normal” release schedule is generally 1 region per day minimum, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays and other special circumstances. 

We’ve got a bunch more surprises to come.  🎁

Have fun decorating!

Patch and the Moles.

Ok folks, we do have a little issue we've uncovered.  If you abandon a home, it seems to be stalling the delivery queue.  While we work on fixing that, we're asking you, please, do not abandon homes if you can at all avoid it (in other words do not play Game of Homes right now).  This is impacting the release of new homes, and it's looking like we may not be able to fully get through releasing all of the new homes today. :(

Hello everyone!

We have a new Linden Homes release, this time featuring Stilt Homes and House Boats.   There are 3900 Stilt Homes, and 552 House Boats in this release.

The stilt homes offer upscale living along the coasts of Bellisseria. Homes are raised on stilts, well above sea level, in the style of many shoreline homes in the Southeastern USA. Some homes are placed along or very near to the beach. Others are over water, attached to wooden piers. Others still are freestanding over water, only accessible by boat. Enjoy the luxury of a home on a full-sized 1024 sq m parcel and access to nearby shared public recreation areas.

You may choose any one of the four one-story or two-story styles from your house controller, regardless of where your stilt home parcel lies. Each has a large deck, where you can enjoy an evening meal or watch the waves. (Note: some land-based parcels may still have a small amount of water within the parcel lines, while some water/pier-based parcels may have a small amount of land in them.)

We hope you enjoy the new homes as we continue to grow the Bellisseria continent and community.

Happy Holidays!

Hi Everyone!

An update on where we're at with the Stilt home regions release.   We tried with all of our might today to get them in to everyone's hands that wants them.  Sadly our plans were thwarted by unforeseen complications.  We're hoping to work through some more of this tomorrow, and I'll be back with another update as quickly as possible!

Have a great evening and thank you for your patience with us as we work through these issues.

Howdy!

Back with another update, and probably the last prior to the Holidays.   I have restored my original release post above. 

We have concluded several rounds of testing region releases and have determined that we can proceed at a paced release.  We will release regions on a timed frequency throughout the rest of today while monitoring systems and progress.   We will pick up doing so again after the Holidays.   I can not predict how many we may get through or by when, but we'll do our best to get as many out as safely possible. 

That said, the KVP system while fixed is probably not in an optimal place.   Please do not play "Game of Homes" - that is if you get a new home, hold on to it for a few days before releasing the home to try and get another.  This is for any home types.  The more stress and load we place on the affected systems, the more likely it will become that we may have to stop deploying regions.

Thanks again for everyone's patience and to the many of you who worked through this with us.

Happy Holidays!

Hello and Happy Tuesday!

 

 

We are going to start our release of the Chalet Linden Homes today, and we’re excited to be getting them out ahead of when we initially anticipated.

Chalet theme homes are modeled after stylized European alpine wood-timbered houses (fachwerkhaus), of a type that you might expect to find in mountains of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Slovenia, Croatia, or northern Italy. These are not rustic buildings, but contemporary homes ready for 21st century living. There are four basic models, named Reizend, Edelweiss, Matterhorn, and Alpenrose.  Each is also available in an open-plan version that looks the same as one of the basic models but has fewer interior walls, so that you can add your own walls to create a customized floor plan. The open plan versions are named Ravensburg, Eikelen, Moritzburg, and Albus.

The chalet homes are set on 1024 sq m parcels in regions with craggy hills and mountain streams, among tall hardwood and coniferous trees. Imagine yourself living in a small village, somewhere far removed from the busy life of the city. Sounds of small birds and gurgling streams are around you, and if you close your eyes you can sense the mountain breeze and the smell of alpine flowers.

Winding streets with brick sidewalks are interrupted here and there by small town squares where you can sit to enjoy conversation or bring lunch to share with a friend. Or you can just sit and contemplate some amazing bronze statuary.

And for a special outing, visit one of several windmills in the chalet regions to watch how wheat and other grains are stone-ground to produce artisan flour. (No, we don’t have any for sale.)

The Chalet Linden Homes feature a brand new community center, “Die Betrunkene Maus” located in Muehlenbach.

This new community center has a fun pub like atmosphere and will see decor changes seasonally.

As a general reminder and to help facilitate the release process, please do not play “game of homes” by taking and releasing homes during the initial phases of launch.  Also it is extremely helpful to refrain from rapidly switching through different home styles to give the regions time to settle and not overload the backend systems.

We hope everyone enjoys the latest additions to the Belliseria continent and community!
