  1. Hello! I have an update to our release process I want to share with everyone. As I alluded to here, we are going to try and change our release strategy for a little while to see if a particular process works better for everyone involved, including many of you who have been very patiently waiting for one of the new Linden Homes. Many of you have already been witness to the new process unfolding in front of you whether you knew it or not. Those regions that have been called out in various places such as New Hamsterdam down to SSPE136 (soon to be officially named). We did this for multiple reasons, mostly in an effort to show all of you some of the process we go through in real-time to make these beautiful new regions come to life, and give a glimpse into the timeline involved. Starting today, we’re going to try to release a region’s worth of new Linden Homes on a regular cadence. We’re aiming to try for a region per every other day, but as we can not control all the factors involved in the lengthy process, we may have some gaps which could last anywhere between a day to several days and especially on the weekends. This will also mean that I will not update this post with each region release, but keep it for larger release updates, announcements, news, information, etc. This will be followed by the future initial release of the new Campers & Trailers theme that has also now been revealed here at SL16B. This release will be large-scale like other releases we have done in the past, and then also potentially follow the release process I’ve outlined above. Next up, is an area that is going to be our first community events space called the Bellisseria Fairgrounds! Our vision for this space is to grant communal access to an area that is clear and ready for set-up of an event. We are going to supply the outlying basic infrastructure which includes water taxi access to the main continent, an airstrip and landing pad. We will have a scheduling calendar and process in place where the space can be reserved in advance. The first events already in line for use of this space will be around the 4th of July holiday coming up. More information to come about how the reservation process will work in the near future.
  2. I was trying to own the retirement community thing... not deliver ice cream: Eat it is more likely.
  3. Let it forever be known that this houseboat is haunted! Sorry we don't disclose hauntings before acquisition, best of luck with it, hopefully it's friendly. A marker stone has been placed and it should be entered into the haunted tour locations. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Sagarc/103/62/15
  4. Raise the Soon-O-Meter level to: Soonish™
  5. Sadly there is no way for us to do this at the present. It will not scale, and developing a system to replace the current one would quite possibly take more time than it takes us to scale up with more house inventory.
  6. Indeed, this topic has run its course and I feel it's time to...
  7. We won't talk about which channel this one appears on....
  8. Sounds like some new show on SLReality TV...
  9. Hi everyone, I have a small update for you regarding the Linden Homes covenant today. This is in response to the many questions we’ve had surrounding forms of commercialism within the new Linden Homes. The general gist here is: if it feels commercial, then you probably shouldn’t be doing it. Here is the text of the addition to the covenant which goes into effect today: Activities and items that could be construed as commercial and for profit by Linden Lab are not permitted in the residential homes and houseboats in Bellisseria. As a note of clarification and to call out a specific use case example: If a content creator is using a Linden Home as a display model to feature content they’ve created specifically for a Linden Home, this by itself is ok. What you may not do is put up signage on the parcel that advertises it, your store, brand, redirect people away from the home for purchases, etc. You can not sell items off your parcel. What you can do is direct people to your Linden Home as a demonstrator of your creations from elsewhere (your main store or marketplace listings). Also, the little cafe/pub type places that have popped up are really awesome and fun, but should also follow the same sorts of guidelines. We think in spirit, the desire to maintain the community feel of the neighborhood and homes, that this small adjustment to the covenant will help to make things clear that these are homes, not stores or shops. We have other plans in place to satisfy requests for something like a yard sale, where you could feature Linden Homes add-ons in a communal area already in place, to come soon™.
  10. R.I.P. (???) (???) A stone to forever immortalise your presence. It should be added to the... wait, is there a haunted Bellisseria tour?
  11. I also really like the idea, I just wish implementation of it wouldn't be as challenging. As was pointed out, moving the regions would cause huge disruption, not only to those old Linden Homes regions themselves, but we'd also have to make room by relocating regions out of the way where I'd see them going.... and then some (I did look and think about it!). Otherwise, this is why we're doing these sorts of things with the new continent as we continue to plan and build it out.
  12. @Saturday Melody I'm not sure where this is coming from, as there is no risk here as you describe. We don't freeze or lock you out of your account due to a missed payment immediately. In fact, you have 30 days to rectify the situation, which can include downgrading your account back to basic and/or getting help from support. As long as you do within that time frame, and even beyond it, we will still work with anyone to give them their account back.
  13. I'm grabbing this question from way early on to answer it. The differences between the subscriptions types and lengths are what cause us to have to add VAT on the monthly and quarterly subscriptions. There are certain parameters we have to follow which dictate where each plan falls into. The annual subscription does not qualify for all of those parameters, so luckily we don't have to put VAT on it. 😊
  14. Is anyone ever sober when they drive their golf carts?
  15. Oooooo! Retirement homes.... and communities!!! /me adds it to the list I'm going to call it "Sunny Acres"
  16. Your calls have been heard! I need the region owner to contact me directly (via email or through support) to start the process of entering the region into the Second Life Region Preservation Society. I have not seen contact from them so far.
  17. I am pleased to announce the addition of another 709 houseboats to the Bellisseria continent today! The Houseboats are available to select as we release them via the Linden Homes Land selection page, and access to the continent addition is open. We will have a set of region restarts to go through, so please bear with us as that happens if you enter the regions right away. We know they will go very quickly, but as time goes on we will get more out, and hopefully faster. Our next focus will be to bring more Traditional Homes plus more Houseboats in another smaller launch while working in parallel to a larger launch and an exciting new theme. As usual, stay tuned here for more updates!
  18. Howdy everyone! While I'd love to give more notice than this, it is looking like we will have another batch of Houseboats ready for release within the next 24 hours. This is as much of a forewarning I can provide, because of the complexity behind the work that is going into these releases. Each release requires the coordination of several teams, and having all of the resources line up to hit the "go button" is pretty organic. As soon as we are able to do so, I will post another update here!
  19. People say I have a lot of mouse blood running through me. 😂
  20. Ok eagle eye time for a test. Where did Horizons derive it's name from?
