Just to clear this up:   Last week, I said "Not this week, or next week".   That now refers to the week of 22 March through 28 March.  I also said "thousands" as in over 4000. I don't know, may

I've died and gone to Bellessaria Heaven. My new place is better than I could have imagined. Roads on 3 sides, with an edge of protected land so it gives the illusion my yard is huge. A river mou

I got a home !

A few Victorians have shown up. Caught 2, threw one back. Keeping one in Forsyte on an alt, corner lot, 3rd row up from the shore, hill top, corner lot with big protected land next to me. Actually quite nice considering how little is available for Victorians right now.

I don't see why they couldn't. If people were to use addons it's going to use up prim and then it's harder to decorate.. I wish they would so we wouldn't have to gamble even further. :(

Here is the response I gave to your question about this in the other thread:

The biggest reason is that the Victorians take up more land space, so it is highly unlikely that you could rez one on your land on not end up with a nearby tree poking into your house.  That is why LL uses those monopoly looking pieces when they are landscaping -- those pieces encompass the complete size of all houses for a specific theme that could be rezzed on a plot.

Additionally, per Patch, the Victorian homes are truly a different theme than the Traditionals and would look out of place mixed in with the Traditionals.

I personally don't see how it would. They still have campers and houseboats.... (to me) It'd make since to just put all the houses under one category to make it fair since we are paying for them... 

 

It's all a question of aesthetics too. The themes are set into neighbourhoods,  it's much better for all the buildings in particular areas to be linked in style. If any building can go anywhere, you start to get an anarchic look, similar to the mainland, which is contrary to the appeal of Bellisseria.

From what you've said, I would gather that you've chosen to have a traditional home. If you want a Victorian, a move would have been easy to do in the last week.

Your argument about about making things fair since we are paying for them could also apply to location. Someone has a water view from their house. Another has two sides of their property bordered by water... should everyone have water surrounding their parcel which would contain ALL the themes available in their rezzer because we're all paying for them? I'd certainly not want to live in a continent that had that. They are out there, many private estates provide that sort of land set up for their tenants, and for those that like that sort of thing, they're very welcome to it.

The fact that you CAN choose any of the buildings within the theme of the parcel YOU chose, is a great improvement on the old Linden Home areas. Celebrate that.

This is a biggie.  In the old Linden Homes, if you wanted a different style of home within a given theme, you had to abandon and then go pick the new style - and hope that you then liked the new location also.  Being able to stay in one spot and just rez any of the styles within a particular theme is a much, much appreciated improvement over the old way.

When I've had a traditional, I've avoided the Winchester; because it seemed huge. The Vics seem massive (except for the Doyle). I got a traditional in Worth a little while ago. The Winchester seems cosy in comparison.

This is what autoreturn is good for. First thing I set anytime I get land - auto-return of 1. Instant zaps anything left.

If something is there but seems to fail to get zapped, because it's root prim is outside the plot - right click it and pick return...

 

My alt just caught a traditional that had red lettering on it, in Forrest Field.

Autoreturn did not handle it.

But looking in about land I noticed Abnor Mole was using up 67 of my land impact. So I just selected the entry with his name on it and hit return manually. Red lettering and everything else zapped away.

Anybody saw an abandoned victorian last few hours? 😛

You can hunt for Victorians the same way we used to hunt for ANY home the last months ... use an autorefresh program and just set the searchword to "Victorian" instead of "Bellisseria". Here is some advice if you do not know how.

PS: Sorry hadn't read the rest of the thread. See your problem is solved meanwhile. But there might be others looking for a Victorian. Still not on the landpage- but all other three themes are- so after realizing the boat I have is much nicer than the ones offered to me yesterday, now I start my C&A game with traditionals! ;)

I logged in for a last go this morning and immediately landed the riverside front view of lake traditional I had looked for for months! More alts = more dilemma! 

Anyway, just wanted to wish you all well for the holidays - in RL I lost my husband to suicide at New Year time four years ago and since then SL has been a big help in dealing with the loneliness - this community even when we are all arguing 😂 has been of value to me. 

So happy christmas fellow "players" :) have a wonderful time!

They are obviously just releasing Westlake! My alt got a parcel there without a house and with a green barrier around it. But she could build a house and just return the barrier! She will give it up though in 56 Minutes since I do not like the region ... If you do: here is your chance! ;)

How tragic! So sad to hear that! One nearly dares not to wish you "Merry Christmas and a happy new year" then ... Still I wanted to thank you for your good wishes and to wish all the best to you! Have a good Christmas (with the children? I think you mentioned having children?) If they are young they will make Christmas merry for you nevertheless. :)

This is so sad.. :( I'm sorry to hear this. 
Nevertheless I'm wishing you some peaceful days at least. My thoughts are with you during this tough time of yours. Sending hugs from afar. 💜🕯️

So sorry to hear what you went through, I hope that SL is an escape for you ( as it is for me too) and makes your RL more beautiful.  I wish you many happy years to come in both SL and RL ! Merry Christmas..... the festive glitter always takes my RL problems away :)

And me the second time (see above). Like Santa has his elfs we are the Moles little builder helpers! Last time I rezzed a Winchester, this time a continental, next time I'll leave an Alderley ... and colour it a bit! ;)

I know what you mean - but that would be mailand light! ;)

In this case they just forgot to rezz the houses but the mailboxes are functionable - and they left their green borders- can be returned!

Jippie!! It has been worthwhile!! Just landed a keeper sourrounded by water

http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Conger Reef/148/42/27

There are several green dots - might be a release?

image.thumb.jpeg.2077f7b51e68eb139cbc80a7a82ef0f0.jpeg

THAT catapulted right away to place two of all my property!! It is at least as nice (if not much nicer) than the best lots in Rocky Hights that I had been sooo keen to get and had missed out completely. Best Christmas present LL could have made me!! ... now the RL festivities can start!!

MERRY CHRISTMAS to all of you!! :)

PS: I still cannot believe it! THIS is the view from my balcony!

Merry Xmas Chloe. I hope someone as nice as you, has a wonderful night. I can't imagine how hard it must be, but I'm sure you will have those who love you around. And someone special looking after you from the Sky

Lovely house @Leora Jacobus I think Westlake is the current release though? Just got four of those and some neighbours have red writing.

Westlake goes around for the last 5-6 hours, but most homes get abandoned at the first visit. I got it 4 or 5 times....

I've seen neighbours decorating without obviously knowing that they can return objects that don't belong to them.

Activating autoreturn is always my first move after getting a home :)
