When did you last see a Bellessarian home available?

Square is better than rectangle.

Except for the people who think rectangles are better. ;)

There are pro's and con's to both! I have had both, and liked them equally for different reasons. A lot of it had to do with the location of the parcel itself in relation to its surroundings and other boats in the area, as well as the orientation of the various models on the particular parcel. There is no one right answer to the question because there are too many variables.

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

Thank you for this clarification as well, I like knowing that there are pros to both and I shouldn't feel too scared to release one houseboat parcel in order to roll for something different. Seems like they might not be as risky to lose as a particularly good home parcel.

Square houseboats rotates, rectangles do not.

HBs are a bit more plentiful at the moment due to the upcoming stilt homes release, but in general, they tend to be scarce on the LP.

I'd say right now is a pretty decent time to try to catch a HB, so if you are inclined to gamble, this might be when you should consider doing so. :)

I would like to see a screenshot of this, because I am at my square HB parcel right now, not seeing this option on the menu.

On rectangle houseboat parcels, every houseboat faces the same way, no matter the type. For squares, it is varied. To clarify, even though you cannot specify rotation, all of the styles don't face the same way. Some are in/out or left/right, etc.

Which is the same thing I said about orientation of the various models of boats. OK.

I'm glad to see that you're enjoying the GoH!

Please be aware that Houseboats have historically been VERY sought after and thus hard to find. Seeing them on the LH page is usually a rarity. This may well change once the stilts are released, but at the moment I'd hate for you to reroll a Houseboat only for you not to be able to get another one for some time.

Thank you so much! I'll likely stick with this for now but those stilts will be VERY tempting when they hit.

Campers can be rotated, via the house selection menu.  Houseboats cannot be rotated.

 

 

Houseboats on rectangular parcels all have one end against the land area (or against a pier with another houseboat against the other side of the pier). Whereas the square parcels will always have one side against the land area (or against a pier with another houseboat against the other side of the pier). 

IF the houseboats were driveable, you could drive the rectangle houseboat straight out of its parcel. However, it would take lots of back & forth maneuvering to get a houseboat out of a square parcel.

I'm one of them, I just find them more flexible.

You have LOTS of time, if you have just discovered Belli!  As someone mentioned, there are a lot of things to look at when evaluating a parcel.  Here's a post where I ran through some of my favorite criteria.

That whole thread is like a class in what people love about particular parcels.

I claimed the square HB parcel in Saltmarsh that @Moe McAlpine abandoned recently when it was first released.  A nearly perfect parcel by all criteria, but it just didn't SPEAK to me, I never started furnishing it, and let it go.  As opposed to the less perfect parcel that I posted about above, which I stuffed with every toy in my book within 3 days of getting it, lol.

I still mourn a quirky camper I let go in Antelope Lake; sometimes you just love a place, for no clear reason.

Private with a very cute entrance, this Trad going back at 11:30.  The mole-pond up the hill in back has a sitting bench and a couple of angle-fishies.  ETA: I derendered a tree next to the red one on that median so as to get a clear pic.

Taken within 2 minutes.  Sorry, Lil, I didn't see your post, had to take care of things RL as soon as I posted this.  And must do so again now ... enjoy, new owner, it's a real cute neighborhood!
