Today, we are pleased to release our latest Linden Home theme, Newbrooke!

663fff0002781465698a126d30ef184e.jpg

Our concept of a modern container home community is stylish, warm, and inviting, while being nestled in a contemporary setting of rolling hills peppered with small lakes, ponds, and public pools.

All of the Newbrooke regions are offered in both 1024sqm and 512sqm sized parcels.   In total, there are 8 stylish house models to choose from, and the smaller 512sqm parcel homes can also be placed on a 1024sqm parcel, giving you a larger outdoor area. 

As always, there is a theme-specific content pack available from the house controller, enabling you to match the style and theme with any modifications you wish to do. (Please refer to the covenant rules). 

Also for this theme we have a brand new community region, “Newbank,“ for residents to enjoy and hang out with their neighbors.

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

-Patch, the Moles and the Second Life Land Operations team

Today, we are pleased to release our latest new Linden Home theme, Sakura!

 

fd7be52b245a6c46293b3c2d8022e786.jpg

 

Sakura is our take on a Japanese inspired home theme: a mix of modern architecture that respects classical design concepts. Houses are clustered together in cozy neighborhoods with carefully manicured landscaping befitting of a Japanese motif. Retaining walls provide dramatic terrain height changes, canals, and privacy between parcels. The canal and road network runs throughout the theme winding among volcanic peaks and valleys.

All of the Sakura regions are offered in both 1024sqm and 512sqm sized parcels. Sakura provides 8 beautiful and highly unique house models, and the smaller 512sqm parcel homes can also be placed on a 1024sqm parcel, giving you a larger outdoor garden space. Every Sakura region has public rezzing zones for both cars and small to medium sized watercraft (just mind the numerous bridges please). 

As always, we have provided a theme-specific content pack available from the house controller, enabling you to match the style and theme with any modifications you wish to do around your home. Please refer to the covenant rules.

Be sure to visit the walled community region, Shobu, for dozens of small gardens and koi ponds, beautiful sights, and a center structure large enough for most all hosted events. After enjoying the gardens, hike up the snow capped dormant volcano of Mount Soji, a 4 region park marking the heart of Sakura along with the Shobu gardens.

As we announced earlier today, we have released a new feature that enables estate owners to disallow scripted agents from accessing regions within their estate.

Many of you have requested that we come up with a solution to scripted agents and their presence within the Linden Homes regions of Bellisseria.  Therefore, we have enabled this feature on the Bellisseria Linden Homes estate as well.

Additionally, we have updated the covenant to reflect this change.

Announcing… The BelliHub!

For months, we have been working behind the scenes to provide all of Bellisseria (and Second Life in general) a place where they can go to find information regarding Bellisseria, meet up with residents living in Bellisseria and have all of their questions answered. 

Today, we are pleased to release the BelliHub!

BelliHub features:

  • Information: Links to pages with details on things like how to get a home, Premium membership, using the land tools, the Bellisseria covenant, etc.
  • Bellisseria Events Center: where members of the Bellisseria Performers Group can mark their events on the calendar for all to see.
  • Demo Homes: Finally a place where residents can rez and walk around all of the currently released home themes and models.
  • Hangout: A games area for residents to hang out and interact.

The BelliHub and BelliDemo regions are a resource for everyone who wants to help prospective new Linden Home owners, or just hang out and discuss all things Bellisseria.

Come one! Come all! Come down to the Victorian Funfair at Merrymount!

PLAY the games based on actual games popular in Victorian times and WIN prizes!
DISCOVER your future in the fortune teller’s tent!
EXPLORE on an old fashioned big wheeled penny farthing bike.
EAT in the beautiful greenhouse inspired by Sefton Park Palm house in Liverpool UK (originally built in 1896).

RIDE the rides at the Funfair if you dare! (Maybe don’t ride the rides just after eating)
PARTY in the gardens outside the greenhouse amongst the geese, ducks, songbirds, rabbits, peacocks and chupacabras! (What? The chupacabras escaped? Hmm, that’s probably for the best anyway.)

Merrymount is the newest of our Bellisseria community regions and is made for our Victorian theme. Nestled just across from Carrollton Bay, Merrymount is a wonderful place for afternoon tea, a lazy Sunday playing games harkening back to the 1800’s, or taking in a nighttime fireworks display. Now open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. 

Speaking of prizes, do we have some more new ones for you! The long awaited Open Floor Plan Victorian homes are finally finished and ready to go.* When they go live they will be updated on all of the Victorian theme regions and be available from the house controller mailbox. While you’re at the controller, those picking up a new content pack will notice something new as well. Victorian house number signs made specially for the Victorian theme, as well as Victorian wooden pull toys!

*The roll out of the new homes will take some time to update all of the Victorian regions. Please be patient. In the meantime, you can preview the new open plan Victorians on the BelliDemo region:  http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/BelliDemo/170/35/22

“Good things come to those who wait.” We always used to say that down on the ranch. Speaking of which…

Introducing our new Linden Homes theme, Ranch!

 

5bb09f70ec72928829eaa79bbf2e5ef1.jpg

 

The all new Ranch theme features country style Ranch homes in multiple sizes and open floor plans on 2048m2 parcels. It is a beautiful rural area with gravel roads, split rail fences, windmills, silos, and stunning fields of wildflowers.

More land means more land impact. Previous themes have 351 or 175 LI per parcel. These have a whopping 703! Plus a new theme means a new content pack, with wildflowers, hay bales, and such. 

Speaking of ‘plus’, please note that these homes are only available if you are a Premium Plus member. Additionally, due to high demand at initial launch, Premium Plus selection of specific Ranch homes will not be available until July 10, 2023.

GoldyPatch and the 3 Bears

Once upon a time there was a Linden named GoldiPatch. One day he was walking through the Linden Homes Demos and he saw a beautiful little Ranch home. He looked inside and scrunched up his nose and said, "This room is tooooooo small." So he clicked on the controller and rezzed a different house and looked inside. Shaking his head he said, "This room is tooooo big." So he used the controller to rez another house.

This time he noticed something strange. There were 6 more options in the menu. The Moles had added 6 versions of homes with more wall dividers in them! GoldiPatch rezzed one and looked inside. He gasped and smiled and said, "This room is juuuuuust right!"

At that very moment three bears came around the corner from the back of the house. There was a Papa Bear, a Momma Bear and a little tiny Baby Bear. Baby Bear pointed at GoldiPatch and said, "SOMEbody has been messing with the controller while WE were inside looking at Ranch houses, Momma... and THERE HE IS!"

Momma Bear growled and GoldiPatch ran away as fast as his little legs could take him because he saw The Revenant and didn't want to end up like Leonardo DiCaprio. 

The End :)

So you loved the Ranch houses but thought some of the rooms were just a bit too big? Now there are options for the biggest 6 houses with more wall divisions available from your Ranch house mailbox! If you do not see them yet, click and hold the mailbox to reset the script and it should appear.

If you don't already have a Premium Plus Ranch home, you can preview the new versions at one of the Linde Homes Demo regions:

Once upon a time. Long long ago… well, about a week ago… Magellan was wandering… I mean “exploring” through the Fantasy regions in Bellisseria when he noticed the water levels there are actually quite high. Immediately he knew there had to be a call to action. “HOLY SCHNIKES!!! What if there is a flood?!?! Residents are going to be washed away or have wet, soggy unmentionables!!!”

Ignoring that last part, the Moles lept into action. Hammers were hammering, saws were sawing and dust was floating through the air. Once the cloud dissipated, the Moles said, “Voila!” and before Magellan stood a completely NEW Fantasy home… a TREEHOUSE home!
 

e2077837bd3049ed84d3679745b974ff.jpg


Magellan looked around the tree carefully… then he clicked on the rope hanging from above and climbed up to the platform deck in the branches. He looked all around and nodded his head approvingly.

“I like it!” he said. Then he went inside and looked around. He liked the clean lines of the interior and the cute little rooms. But he was feeling a little claustrophobic.

“Make another one but knock down that wall!” And the Moles did.

“Let’s have one with more built in features! Like a cozy little loft and some built in bookshelves, and maybe a spiral staircase with the tree coming through the middle!” And the Moles did.

“Now add some walls back to that one because I’m eccentric and indecisive!” and the Moles did.

When the Moles were finally done, there were 4 new Fantasy Treehouses. Magellan looked around. He smiled and shouted, “SHIP IT!” Then he went to find a safe place to store his unmentionables.

Introducing new Fantasy Treehouses! With panoramic views across the stunning fantasy regions. 

2 completely new models with regular and open floorplan versions, available to both new and existing Fantasy homeowners in Bellisseria. 

One with a spiral staircase leading to a loft and built in bookcases.
Another with clean lines for those who want more freedom in their decorating choices.
Both come with an outside deck, panoramic views at treetop level across the Fantasy landscape and a climbable rope to get from ground level up to the deck.

The new homes should be available to rez on the menu on the house Controller throughout the day today.

In the meantime, you can see the new Treehouses on the demo regions here:

Premium Plus members! Today, we’re happy to announce the release of the captivating Mediterranean theme. Immerse yourself in the lap of luxury with the release of the exciting addition to your living experience.


75264a7db6d8e5c697a663de6822edea.jpg


Indulge in the allure of our opulent residences set on expansive 2048 sqm parcels, boasting decorative walled streets that create an atmosphere of exclusivity. Lined with enchanting Mediterranean trees and fauna, the color palette of pebble sand and terra cotta tones further enhances the Mediterranean charm, creating an idyllic retreat. And with 703 land impact, these homes redefine the meaning of spacious living.

But that's not all – brace yourselves for a unique and cozy feature that sets these homes apart. Several of the houses come equipped with their very own special addition – Fireplaces! 

43692f3d2288fa0dc68a72637ad2f90c.jpg

What makes these fireplaces truly exceptional is their full controllability through a specialized fireplace control panel integrated seamlessly into the house. With this panel, you have the power to rez a fire grate, light the fire, extinguish the flames, clean the grate, remove the grate, or even take away the entire fire mantle and grate. The customization offers you the ability to tailor your living space to your exact preferences. These specially crafted fireplaces do not contribute to your parcel's land impact, ensuring that you can enjoy the warmth and ambiance without any compromise on the overall impact of your virtual haven. 

You can see examples of the homes, both decorated and undecorated, at the special reveal we released at the RFL Christmas Expo. 

Premium Plus membership just got even more exclusive with the introduction of the Mediterranean theme, where luxury meets innovation in the heart of your digital sanctuary. Upgrade your living experience now!

Happy Holidays from Patch and the Moles!
