  1. I see all these arguments concerning what would be "realistic" in Bellisseria based on the real world. AND .. .then I look around and see giant hamsters, talking cats, a "mayor" who is a mouse, mermaids everywhere, and I wonder whey so many people are fighting for "realistic". I honestly love the variety and creativity that I see in SL and hope that it continues. It just seems to me that some people are taking the whole thing to seriously.
  2. This is again one of those questions that, unless your last name is "Mole" or "Linden", the only thing you can give is your opinion. If you want to decorate with snow - go ahead. If you don't like someone's decorations - AR them. Let the Lindens sort it all out. I think, as we have seen numerous times, the covenant can be a source of confusion and debate. It's wonderful that people feel free to voice their opinion here in the forums, but the final decision is not ours.
  3. This was my first home in SL. It was through the old "First Land" program of LL. It was 512m on a hill by the road in Cortina (one of the original snowy themed regions). I started out there with a tiny little cabin and a few pieces of furniture. I ended up later buying more land and at one point owned about half of the region. The first two pictures show my cabin. (Taken November 2014) Third Picture is my Castles that I built later. Fourth Picture is the area today. (Cortina was mostly abandoned land for a long time).
  4. Three topics that discuss the idea of lists. Might take a bit to read through all of them, but it has all been said before.
  5. My two cents ... ok .. maybe only one cent ... Bellisseria will be whatever the residents want it to be. That has been show already by the people who have created pubs, community centers, brothels, and whatever else there already is. As far as I go, I like to stay home, wader around and sight-see, boat and other stuff like that. If people want to be social they will, if they want to gather they will, if they want to be a loner they will. I don't think that LL has to try to build those things into Bellisseria. I think that the Lindens and the Moles are doing an amazing job and look forward to everything they do. It also concerns me sometimes that people think they have more say in what should and will be done in Bellisseria. We are only tenants using a perk of our premium membership and can always move on if there are things here we don't like.
  6. Starting to look like Autumn at my camper
  7. I decided to add some Halloween touches to my houseboat. It is much easier to decorate a land-based home in my opinion, but I am happy with it so far.
  8. Did a little decoration for Halloween on my Adams house. I will probably add some more, but I'm happy with it so far.
  9. I have been working on some walls for my trailer but am having trouble with the textures for the"trim". I am using the Laramie trailer and wanted to match the wood trim on my wall section. I can't find any texture in the packs that seem to match. Am I missing them? Does anyone know if they are there? Thanks for any help.
  10. A few, in progress, photos of my trailer. Still a lot of work to do, but I am pleased with how it is turning out.
  11. Just starting to decorate a trailer - using the Shenandoah and trying to make it feel like a place we would go on vacation. Keeping it simple so far. Lots of stuff from Soy (I think I spent way too much today). Also used a few things from the Content Creation Pack. I'm sure I'll add more soon. Excuse the photo, I find it kinda hard to get good pics in smaller spaces.
  12. The person stating that cannot be sure about the bots on Bellisseria. And, even if they are harmless, does not mean they are not annoying and an invasion of privacy. If I had bots (harmless or not) showing up in my home while I was there I would be upset also. They have no business TP'ing into someone's property. The fact that LL seems to be doing something about them and they have stopped is a good thing.
  13. I prefer the body to still have the alpha cuts. Most of my mesh clothing did NOT come with alpha masks and I am not interested in having to start making masks for all my mesh clothing. I am hoping that all the bodies will give that option to the end-user.
  14. I ended up making a version that I could sell. Had to change some things and it is pretty simple, but if anyone wants one, it is on the MP.
  15. Something I put together from different sources. Parts from here and there. It is not very precise (especially when you look up close) but it is good enough for me
  16. I changed the siding/color of my Continental and also added a tower room/library. It makes a nice cozy spot to read or relax. I also started to decorate for Fall and can't wait to put up my Halloween stuff.
  17. That little room on the back is wonderful. Makes a great place for a kitchen. I also love the wall in front of the house, not sure if that will work with my location, but may give it a shot after Halloween. I have plans for the front for Halloween already.
  18. Decided to change houses again and the Continental was the only one I had not tried out yet. I think it is the most challenging (for me), the rooms downstairs are kind of small. But I love the porch add-on and I think with a few color changes it will make a cool Halloween house.
  19. The basic flaw with the original question Why do we need a 'security system'? is the use of the word "WE" Everyone in SL is different, each of us has our own desires, needs and wants. Why I might want a security system is very different from someone else's opinion. So I don't think you will really get a good answer to that question. As far as why "I" want/need a security system ... well ... that is nobody's business except my own. If I choose to use a security system that is a choice that has been given to me by LL and I do choose to use one and have on all my properties for more than a decade.
  20. The current look for my humble home. I have gone through just about all the styles, and settled on the Adams. It is a cute little house with just enough space. I really liked the Winchester, but so does everyone else on my street. So, I decided to stick with the Adams .... for now ...
  21. That's kinda what I figured - looks very random and odd. I guess the Moles just like to have some fun
  22. Not sure if this is relevant, but on SSPE185 there is a railroad station, tracks, a water tower, and a Tactical Nuke - all placed there by the Moles. Also some other random things (camels, a goat and a rail handcar). I have no idea if they are the beginning of something, or just the moles having fun.
  23. Love the idea to see some positive things here in the forums. I also got my houseboat on the first day release. I was very lucky and got one in an excellent location. I have seen some real nice locations being developed now by the Moles (who do an AMAZING job), but I don't think I would ever give up what I have. I've been in SL for over 14 years, and have lived in all kinds of places (rentals, owned mainland, owned private island, original Linden homes, the old linden starter land, and now Bellisseria). I had started to feel like SL was getting "stale", but am so happy now that they have created this new sense of community. Bellisseria is definitely beautiful, but what they have really created is a sense of "home". There seems to be a pride of ownership and the things that people are doing with their homes are just amazing. It has made logging in to SL so much more fun. I really look forward to seeing what's new every day and touring around the new homes and lands. I have boated, ballooned, biked, hiked, skateboarded and walked more around this continent in the last few weeks than I had in the past 12 years.
  24. This is great, thanks for opening this up. Unfortunately I won't be able to be at the grand opening, but I look forward to other events and just hanging out there.
