  1. Gah! You found the original pickle! 🤣 Everyone knows.... the entire continent looks like a dragon eating a pickle... right?
  2. Uh oh.... Operation squishy pickle has been found!
  3. Any cartographers among us? Remember, Magellan is missing! We can't rely on him to map and discover things for us right now. I would be supportive of perhaps someone putting together a listing, with some nice descriptive text, maybe some thumbnail images in a post and I can pin it here in the forums for everyone.
  4. Folks, please keep it civil. I really don't want to have to lock this discussion down.
  5. Read the covenant in your about land details. ☺️
  6. No, I am addressing your post of which seemingly speaks to overall deployment and supply, along with our simulator capacity, at least that I what I believed you were speaking to. So please do not confuse that with my updates of the fact that more homes, specifically of the houseboat type (first) are coming very soon and the fact that none of what you are speculating as to why we didn't put out more in our first round of deployment has anything to do with simulator capacity or my inability to predict demand.
  7. This is pretty far from the truth unfortunately. I have more than enough "server space", that's not an issue at all in this. Predicting demand, also not an issue, I knew these were going to be very popular. The issue is, creating a multi-thousand, unique layout of homes is going to take time. Lots of time. Alternatively I could take what we have now and stamp it out a few dozen times. That's not very appealing to me, and I think you'd agree.
  8. Yes, I've been saying it all over the place, we have a batch coming in short order, and sorry we ran out so fast!
  9. Well that was fast! In less than 48 hours, our new Traditional Homes and Houseboats on the new Bellisseria continent have been claimed. We're really pleased and overwhelmed at the positive response to the new models and at the rapid speed with which they were acquired. Welcome to the neighborhood: we’re glad to have you here! For those of you who weren’t able to get in, don’t worry: you’re not out of luck. More Houseboats will be coming in the very near future, followed by additional Traditional homes and newer themes that we hope you’re also going to love. The LDPW and Moles are hard at work crafting the themes and the rest of the continent for your enjoyment, so get ready for new styles and new neighbors over the course of the year. Stay tuned to this post: we’ll be updating the status of home availability and other pertinent information as we go forward, so you’ll be able to jump in and get your new home. Current Inventory Status (18 April 2019 @ 7:30am SLT ) Traditional Homes: Out of Stock Houseboats: Out of Stock
  10. Merged, because we do not need multiple threads on the same topic. That said, there are many, many other reasons to have a premium account. A houseboat, or any Linden Home (old or new) for that matter are just one feature besides weekly stipends, Live Chat customer support, increased group limits, increased offline IM limits, premium gifts, exclusive region access rights, etc. https://secondlife.com/premium/
  11. What's that supposed to mean? Perhaps message me so you can enlighten me.
  12. Working on it! Keep in mind folks, we're just getting started with what we have to reveal! 😉 We have lots of things in the works, and we wish we could have just plowed it all out at once. The attention we're giving to detail and being as meticulous as we are attempting to be across all of the various pieces of the project, means these things are having to roll out in phases.
  13. We do have more houseboats coming soon! You can always take a Traditional home today, they are still available, and then switch later as more houseboat supply becomes available.
  14. Show off your new Linden Homes pictures!
  15. It's a Linden Homes forum to post all your Linden Homes things to!
  16. I politely disagree. I do not think giving everyone an "easy button" to set your cruise control and point your vessel of choice in a direction to not navigate your way around is best... and because you used way to many "s-words" in your post. 😉 There will be plenty of navigable space in the REGIONS that will wrap around and follow the contour of the continent on it's way south, at least a region wide in most places of protected land that will never be owned by anyone but Linden.
  17. I don't particularly care about how may regions it will take to do this, I'd rather go for realism than a region tunnel any day. I am more apt to follow the coastline and put in whatever is needed to navigate through and around the area in red.
  18. Yes, the second screen shot is that actual region in SSP (hence the different house colors), but same street, region, etc. The demo region is a copy of the original SSP197. Even though my draw distance is only 128m, you still have the impacts of the attached regions that surround the demo region. Draw distance doesn't just hard stop everything out of your view. The simulator REGION you are standing in is still working to process the neighboring content, avatars, etc. to some level, and that is still going to impact you standing there in various ways. We did also test how the demo region was performing with our viewers when the demo region was nothing but a blank green slab of empty terrain prior to copying SSP197 to the expo. We had the similar FPS reductions on our viewers, and there was nothing in our region to render.
  19. Ok, here is the demo region at the expo: Here is the same region as best I could line up camera angle, etc. As you can see from my everyday operating settings, there is quite a difference in performance I can measurably see.
  20. Door handles are such a hot topic of discussion, that most of the team decided to put things in perspective... We are quite a diverse group of avatars! What fits some of us, doesn't fit the rest. We try to choose the middle when scaling things to accommodate everything from large to tiny. In this case, we may have been a bit off on height and handle scale, so we'll be sure to include step stools for the smaller avatars in our content packs!
  21. Uhm. I think, just to be clear so there's no confusion, the houses have modern control panel systems inside that allow you to lock up the house, access list it, etc. The demo houses in the preview are open for everyone to walk through and the control panel system is disabled.
  22. Yes, in fact this is the sort of modification we'd hope for. The houses were designed to permit this sort of addition of space with the usable parcel area we left. I saw a comment about the sizes of the homes, but this was part of our thinking. We wanted to create a model of flexibility and I think the convenant bears that out by example. We will be much more active in the enforcement of the new Linden Homes continent.
