NEW THEME!! Beachy/Summery?


Recommended Posts

Chat is ending.... time to go see the display homes!

ETA: Homes are NOT launching today. They are being worked on, in the background, as are the areas they will be released on.

ETA Again: Another theme is almost ready, too, with two more themes coming afterward. Double theme home release MAY happen in the winter.

As has been mentioned, do not abandon your homes.   A quick clarification on styles and such.  There are 4 floor plans to the Stilt Home theme.   There will be two placement options offered on the hom

STILT Homes (as in S/E US).

There'll be three styles, all on stilts.

  1. Overland
  2. Overwater
  3. Mixed (over land AND water)

They'll just be on demo, for now. They cannot really proceed with any regions until their Project: UPLift is complete (move to cloud).

1024m², as well.

JUST got crashed out of the region - so - yeah, it'll be a while.

YW! It was quite crowded, and there was someone there actually complaining to a Linden right off the bat because she did not like the theme. Sheesh!

I saw four models of homes, all 1024x1024, each of which could be sited either all on land, partially on land, or all on water.  All on stilts.  Patch seemed very clear that there will be space to put a boat on both the all over water AND the partial water parcels.  And yes, stilt home regions will, at least sometimes, be sited near existing or new houseboat regions.

The only thing said about release dates was Patch dropping something about a possible winter release of 2 themes.  So these are NOT coming soon to a region near you :)

There are no underwater homes in this theme.  But it would be easy to BUILD a mer home under one!

I love this one!

Yes me too. I see that one become a tropical holiday retreat. The others feel more like traditional family homes... on stilts. To me.

And this worries me...

All 1024 sq m homes. Huge decks on the back. Google Florida stilt homes for an idea of the theme.

We saw a lot of those when we drove to the Keys for vacation a few years ago.  Some were really nice looking.  Will make for interesting landscaping and add-ons.

I think the only one I don't see pictured in this thread yet is the Tortuga.  To me this one feels like a yacht club!

All of them have quite nice decks.  Here's the Lauderdale from the back, complete with an Alotta :)

The Santiago feels the most like a regular family home, to me.  Its deck is more modest.  I think this is the model Patch used in his hint pics.

... he said something about being able to park cars underneath houses.

For the homes in Florida, many will put a cement pad under the house for parking cars and some even enclose it for a full garage:

Oh that looks great! I thought I might want a water one, but now I'm reconsidering. I do like the Havana model best because it appeared to be smallest, though I didn't have time to explore them all thoroughly (had to go cook dinner!), so I could be wrong about that.

I'm back checking out the homes again, and note that the Santiago model has balconies on the front AND back sides! The other  models don't have that feature. 

ETA: Love the sliding doors!
