  1. If the next theme announcement is at at the Dec 5-15 Christmas expo, this might mean we can expect them to release between Feb-April? Fingers crossed it's a city/urban theme.
  2. Yeah but whats the point of saying there are X homes and X are desirable when you're just pulling those numbers out of thin air?
  3. You go to school in the bay area? My school never went into there being X Linden homes and X of those homes being desirable.
  4. Not sure where these numbers are being pulled from, but someones gonna get hemorrhoids.
  5. Some of us think that orange and green area might be an urban area. See those alleyways?
  6. Yes, it is to bring in new premium members. No, long-time premium members are not getting stiffed. Tbf, existing premium members are already guaranteed income to a certain degree. This presumably is to get more premium members. But it's not as if new members have a monopoly, no one does. Is LL suppossed to give accounts that have had premium longest priority, in which case its pointless signing up for premium to members that have not done so already? The only ones with a real advantage, is anyone paying attention. They're doing a stifled rollout so that people can actually get houses, and they can get feedback and suggestions as the continent is made. It was a long time between when the project started (see the SSP thread to see the process and speculation from members. It was the better part of a year from when it started until when the first bit dropped) and when the first round of houses dropped. It would have been such a disaster if they made an entire continent with no gauge for how it would play out, and then have it fall flat. (Also, "ten more years?" really?)
  7. This is not actually always the case. Many places restrict or ban billboards. I'm not fully apposed to ads, but I think billboards would be crossing the line imo.
  8. SL16B Stunning seems to be a copy of SSP 197, so I agree that it's probably just showing off the current options.
  9. If you search SLB 1 Build, that to me looks like the area. It seems there is a Linden Homes preview in SLB 20 Build, but it's unknown if that's just showcasing the home types that are already out.
  10. Bolded section would be brilliant. Especially with each parcel knowing what house its using, and said houses footprint. Could extend the footprint idea to the security orb settings too: e.x. you step onto the property, 20 second warning; you tp into the home, kicked immediately.
  11. 💯 Just as long as you can pass the same region twice several times before you go "OH... this is just a copy."I feel like it is quite a damper when it feels like a procedural. But I feel like they learned that between the old linden homes and now.
  12. I'm always down to be cammed and I cam those nearby occasionally as well. We're a curious bunch. I rarely hide my parcel (hey if you see anything you don't want, 99% of the time its your fault). I'm on a river/lake so I often sit out and watch the boats go by, so it's only fair they can see me too in my eyes. But I agree with the general consensus that the roads and community areas get enough traffic (for now. will depend how the rest of the rollout goes if they remain popular).
  13. I hope they won't copy paste them too-too much. Even if they are the perfect regions, and they move the landscaping around, each region should still be somewhat unique. I think some basic copy-paste might even help somewhat, as far as keeping the road network uniform and making sense. No doubt they'll tweak once they're all in place. i'm not worried.
  14. "you can do whatever" is not permission. It's a given. I just add it because people like to really put words in peoples mouths here. If I clarified less, I'd have double the number of people taking issue.
  15. It's just something to ask yourself when you decide to get a 2nd home. What if everyone had 2 accounts and did the same? You can do whatever. I'm not sure it would stop me from getting a 2nd home if I had 2 premiums. I'm just saying towards the people whos thought process is : "Well, not many people are going to do this, so if I do it it's fine." That's a risky way to go about your thought process.
  16. We all certainly can do whatever we have the ability to do, but then there is the question: what if everyone made the same decision I made? We must behave in a way that if everyone else behaved in the same way, things would still work out. I feel like, unless I'm missing something, many of you are putting words into the OPs mouth. They aren't saying anything bad about those who DID take a second home (bc you have the right to take as many homes and you have premiums. If 100 people had 5 premium accounts each, then they could very well take a good portion of the continent. It's not dictated per person. It's per premium, and that's fair). They're just putting a For Your Consideration that perhaps if you wait on the 2nd home until there isn't sucg a rush to get into the continent, perhaps more who are eager for a place can get it, which I am a bit befuddled how one can not see as a charitable thing to do when there is scarcity, whether you decide to to it or not (which is fully your right and OP never said it wasn't).
  17. You're doing great just by coming here daily, tbh. Most of those complaining never visit the forums. You shouldn't have to visit the forums to know what's up, but visiting here definitely lets you know of what progress is made, and (somewhat) when updates might be coming. Last rollout, things all went in 24-48 hours, so those who checked the forum once a day all had time. You can also follow this thread to receive notifications when the update drops. The SL or LL (forget which, sorry) Twitter, apparently also will Tweet when the new phase comes out, so if that works better, do that. As for choosing the right parcel: it's all random. NOTE THOUGH: you can change your house style through an item (mailbox if house: live preserver if houseboat) , so if you snag a place, don't make the mistake I've seen many make and get a place and abandon it bc you want another style. You can change the style, but not the placement. Changing placement (or switching from a houseboat to house, or vise versa) is done through abandoning your land, which can be done (I think) 5 times per day. But be careful (especially with this rollout which may go fast) and don't be too picky, or else you may be left without a home.
  18. If you click the pickle jars as the pickle place btw, it gives you a pickle on a stick. Just an FYI.
  19. I'm pretty stoked about a decade theme. Much more open to creativity than last years theme (crystals iirc, right?). Lots of good and bad has happened in every decade. It's important we celebrate the good and do not forget the bad. We would not be where we are now (for better or for worse) without either.
  20. I call Wednesday. Ready to be wrong though.
  21. I think (and hope tbh) that it'll be urban themed. There seem to be alleyways in between the lots, and that double road could be a sort of main street.
  22. I usually hate "both sides" arguments, but in his case, I think it works. You offer the argument: what if everyone wanted a skybox? The current experiment has proved that false imo. People have shown that if they have a home plot they will decorate it for the most part.
  23. That is my thing though: yes, they have options, but this is Linden controlled. No doubt, many just want it all done for them. We are allowed skyboxes here: ok cool. You should be allowed to have a skybox and a Linden home. But I think if we gave the option: many would say: no I JUST want a skybox, do whatever with the extra prims the house would have given. If a small community committed on that, it would allow the moles much more freedom.
  24. I still maintain there could be an option that (so far) is neither Traditional or Houseboat. There will be many people who opt for a skybox no matter what options are available. That is totally fine, and their right as a premium member. In my opinion, though, that even gives Moles more freedom: the homes are, what, 160, 200 prims a piece? Imagine them being able to use those on the ground. And just to clear up a couple arguments: But shouldn't someone be able to have a house and skybox? Yeah totally. They paid for their parcel. Who cares how they use it? They should be able to use their parcel however. But, if they want to purely have a skybox and want to take advantage of the double prims without decorating at all on the ground which they never plan to use (do any of you think they should be obligated to decorate a house they never plan to use, or feel a vacant house is better than a mole decorated ground?) they should be able to. I want to move the convo a bit away from entitlement, which we are currently at. Yes, sure, many feel cheated that some with alts have two homes, while they wait. That'll go away. But, eventually everyone with a linden home will be forced to move. Surely, no matter what the Lindens and Moles do, many will not be satisfied, and/or will just want a sky place to change clothes. In my opinion, if we want the continent/ground to maintain a sense of community/consistency, we should offer those people some sort of option. It could perhaps even be quicker if the moles were able to just make an option and only allow skyboxes in it. I'm fully down for the community experiment: but surely there are those who aren't interested. Give them an option, imo.
