My place is in a region called manx on linden mainland... the mainland I am in was only half built and it would be nice if it were to get finished off and the whole island was created. Do you have the same if you are based on linden mainland?

More stuff means more lag because more textures.. so.... I’d honestly just prefer to live in a cave sometimes. 😛

Hi, @sparkie Hallard!

I visited the Manx region, and it is all there.  In fact, I don't believe it's possible to create a "partial region", although certainly part of a region may be left undeveloped, or its land sunk below sea level.  Perhaps your draw distance is set too low?

I believe he is talking about the fact that the Gaeta 1 continent was never finished.

I don't know if LL intends to ever finish that continent.  There is not enough land ownership in SL to need the continent finished and it has been many years since that was created.

 

Most of the other continents are full continents - you can scroll your inworld map out and then look around to see them all.  Zindra is also incomplete, with places that just end on a straight edge with nothing next to it.  Bellisseria, which is where the new Linden Homes are being created, is also a partial continent for now.  However, that one is planned to be a full continent when they finish building all of the new Linden Homes.

I'd also like to see them finished rather than have weird holes in the coastline. It'd be nice to see everything finished and linked up. But I've not seen any comments that there's any chance of this. About the best you can do is move to a more complete area.

I think they stopped because they realized there's no way they could make it not look like a dong.

I had a plot along that edge. It sold in no time at all. The outlook was awesome, the sea is far below the plot edge and not 'usable' but the view angle looked awesome trust me, added a beach edge looked fine. But the BEST bit of living there was the low to zero lag, and no crap floating in the sky from the outlook.

I must resolve to visit the mainland. I don't recall ever doing that. I need to surf the world map more often and actually do something useful with it.

Right now for me, the mainland might as well be Antarctica.

I enjoy mainland as I'm an inworld traveler.... car(Jeep)/trucks/boats/airplane & helicopters. It took much to learn to navigate (without TPing), I enjoy that method immensely. Mainland is generally the only sims where regions are 'connected'... now sim crossings remain troublesome. Although there are view settings and other ways to minimize crossing troubles.

BEST way to 'tour' Mainlands is search LAND SALES... and TP around to see what's there. You get all the info, and can glance at World Map as you TP aimlessly.

Most likely you've visited Mainland sims very often... and just didn't realize it. Some stores, and many clubs  are within mainland sims/regions.

Of course… I doubt that you'd be a type that would Hang-out at Truck Stops and Airports! The marina's can be very nice tho. All these type of builds require interconnected regions to provide mobility. Some things are 'skybox' builds that can't be traveled to/from. With those you must find ground level or sea bottom. SL is a very Vertical World, as well.

Maybe when regions move to the cloud they will revisit the continent to complete it and link it up with the not too distant Corsica

I'm sure there is MUCH in 'Cloud' now (with AWS), but that's hardly more than a guess.  Linden's/Moles have done EXCELLENT work in developing 'new' Linden Homes... security system takes MUCH of EVERYONE's consideration into mind and they have implemented it well. There are more to these 'homes' than meets a virtual eye.

Seems a major effort is in 'connecting' continents and such if you are familiar with SL/World Map. The 'hardware' and RL real estate behind this Virtual World/Grid is RL mind boggling, to say the least. I believe most Mainlands will remain in-house at Linden Lab. There are factors with 'Cloud' based land as being private islands that make it more a candidate. Really there may be more 'private islands' inworld than amount of Mainland, anyhow.

No maybe about it.  Last time I checked, about 67% of the grid was private regions.

Not very likely. It was the last continent LL was working on before they got the idea that selling private sims was more lucrative. The oroginal plan was actually to merge Gaeta 1-5 into one big continent. They finished no. 5 and half of no. 1 before they lost interest. NOs 2,3, and 4 weren't even started.

Manx is not on Gaeta 1 though, it's on Satori so I suppose it was all the abandoned land the OP had in mind.

Manx is on the west edge of Gaeta 1:

It must have been hit by some serious continental drift!
