pssst!

Sooo ... about these big houses  😈

They all have multiple entrances, easy access to the rear of the property as well as the front.  And they're fantasy.

Why not get a big mesh hill and bury half the house in it?  Then add a shell to the outside of the house, texture it with some stained old stucco, and add a bunch of vines and ivy.  Inside, either make the hill part of the house, or simply wall it off.  

Voila! Small house built into the side of a doubtless impeccably landscaped hill, big garden.  Worth a shot, hmm?

The neighbors might not love this

True, if not done well.  Like with all builds, it needs to look in-theme.  So this is not something you'd want to try along a row of homes in a flat landscape.  You also need to pick your style of home carefully, so you're not adding a hill above the 15m height limit. 

You need the right parcel, in a hilly area, ideally a little secluded.  In most themes, you'd have to search a little.  But I wouldn't be surprised to pick up the perfect parcel for this idea as an abandon, while everyone else is trying desperately for a parcel with a river on three sides :)

Couldn't sleep, Belli chat was active!

The fantasy demo region is open again - and there are 4 open floor plans as well as the 4 original ones.

ALSO!!

The fantasy regions will have seasonal foliage!!!  You will see only one season in the demo region, but Patch very kindly took pictures:

They all look fabulous and making me even more drawn to that theme to know seasons are featured!

I totally love the environment of the fantasy region with its beautiful plants, crystals, arched bridges, lovely effects, etc... but I had been perplexed by how large the homes are and wondered if I would be able to decorate one to my satisfaction.

After wandering around them for a bit, I found one style that I think that I could decorate comfortably: The Mistbrooke. It has more traditionally sized rooms and a nice one story layout that could easily become an entry, living room, bedroom, kitchen and dining room.

The model is located here (at least while the demo region is up) if you want to see it:

Awesome how pretty and subtle the colors are.  It's not as "techno color" as Elderglen (still love it there tho), instead it looks very soft and shimmery like a watercolor painting. :)

I love how you keep us all updated on stuff. Thank you!

I will definitely gravitate to the fewer walls versions - the ones ending in 'spell' and not the 'brooks' with all the walls and tiny spaces.  I am thrilled they made open floor plans available. 

The changing color glow for the seasons is a nice touch.  I am excited to try for one when they are released, so maybe it's time to release my chalet since this fantasy type house is what I really was trying to turn it into.

I really hope they find a fun way to connect it to the rest of Bellisseria like a huge mist or fog wall to sail or fly through (ooooooh stormy seas!  or the Bermuda Triangle!) rather than a just teleporter.

I visited the demo area and honestly, everything was so beautiful. The environment was just so breathtaking and a beautiful theme.

The environment is currently set-up for best viewing at midnight.  The effects change with the day/night cycle, however everything in the region is currently locked to midnight and one season.

O awesome Patch, I'm on vacation next week...is that going to intersect with "very soon"? 😬 Cause there's no way I'm missing the opening of this one

I love that the Lindens keep updating. A quick inspection shows that Magic Mole updated mesh parts of homes ending in "brooke" on June 6th. And the newer versions ending in "spell" had pieces updated as late as two weeks ago, July 14!  (See photo highlighting selected pink mesh.)

The Lindens certainly have been planning this theme for a long time. Glowing and Ancient Moles made some of the iconic plant life back in October and November of 2020.

Time to dump the trailers and get the tier ready.

I'm still bothered by the sheer square footage and BIGNESS of these houses. But since I complained about how tiny the first ones, and I feel cramped even in the two storey spacious log cabins, I can't really complain.

Based on the new selection, I like Moonspell the best. One floor, a little patio to turn into a patio garden, one small room for slime moulds and the rest open for everything else. Everything a fungus could need.
