    Here's the wording from the covenant: "Additional buildings or structures are allowed as long as they are in theme and meet the height restrictions."

    This particular structure, which is modular/modern and longer (though not higher) than the trad itself, is hardly 'in theme'. Definitely a judgment call to be made by Lindens...

    I wonder if the resident knows they can rezz other home options on their parcel because their modular/modern home makes no sense.  I also noticed a rezzer in the front yard for a camper.  Eep.

    This happens to me often.... I started rezzing a box and sitting on it to get out from under the stairs.

    What I do is TP out from under the stairs using the mini map. For those unaware, you can double click on the mini map to TP to your desired destination within the visible range shown on it. I just double click close to my dot and I am out in a flash. :)

    Since Lil still has the Traditional she picked up the other day, and I'm still debating between it and the one the my alt has had since the initial release, I don't have anyone else that can look for houses. 

    I need to decide on my Traditional.


    If the one you picked up the other day is Gentle Grove, that used to be mine on an alt that I thought was the one that was  the monthly premium, but I was mistaken and let it go by accident (which I am over now lol).  I think it's in a unique position which I found really neat with the water on both sides and sitting at a dead-end street.  I love uniquely placed homes. :) 

    I remember your post a few days ago mentioning Gentle Grove.

  4. I just got caught up on the last few hours of posts and just want to comment about the multiple accounts acquiring homes.  Folks do it in real life....celebrities for example, with their homes in various countries. Since I am an American, I think of a sandy lot as having a vacation home in a warm climate like Florida. Another home might feel like Colorado in the mountains.  My camper feels like a weekend getaway in Michigan. I haven't been able to get away on vacation in a few years, so these homes make for a nice get-away fantasy for me for the time being.

    Speaking of celebrities, if I happen to see any of you from the forum in the neighborhood, I feel like I am having a celebrity sighting.  I will refrain from asking for your autographs, though. Ha.

    Alrighty, thanks for reading and Happy New Year, everyone!

    Yeah... share the love of a landmark... folks gotta see this for themselves... I am hoping this is just a bad angle or something, but... the WTFery is strong in this one...


    I had to have a look, and that's not even the worst angle. The structure has no rhyme or reason to it. It was created by the resident living there.

    Patch showed up in Chat about 5 minutes ago. So, for those looking, release within the next hour?

    From what I have observed the past few months, Patch being in chat has never really coordinated with a release. He has been promoted and Whitney Linden does the releases now. Also, the last few releases seem to have been later rather than earlier.

    After loooong time of Meadowbrooks I just let a camper pass by 5:48 am SLT

    As usual these days it is a persistent camper - noone wants it!

    To avoid constant alarm I had to change the searchword to Traditional

    This way I miss the houseboats though!

    You can use more than one search word, can't you?  I am not sure which refresher it is, but I even saw someone mention that you can use partial words, too, such as boat.

    To people looking and doing the click click click thing, just a reminder to pull down the menu tab. I've caught it several times today when the screen comes up Meadowbrook but there is a Bellisseria home available by using the menu pulldown. (And I only just now noticed that the OP misspelled Bellisseria :) )

    In case you didn't know, Bellisseria staying at the top of the drop down menu works in the same way that it does when you enter the name for your home and then click the next button. For instance, is you are not looking for a camper, but Bellisseria pops up, click "next" anyway and then go back to the previous page and that will seal it in to appear at the top next time.  Also, when a release happens, it may not show at the top the first time, but if you get the "sorry" message and try again, Bellisseria will be at the top of the menu for subsequent tries.

    So one of the recently released regions had a community cabin on it....  If that's what the upcoming new theme is gonna be, I'm so in!  Omigosh, it's so freaking adorable.  I'm really wanting a winter themed perma-home

    no its not the new theme has been hinted to be Victorian 

    Just as the traditionals, houseboats, and campers have several style choices, maybe the new one will include a cabin as one of the style choices along with a Victorian if that is, indeed, what the hint is. 🤷‍♀️

    Well first there is the realease ... and then there are those who abandon right away without annoncement - sort oft afterwave of release.

    And then I announce at a certain time - so the people who missed ot and didn't notice in time can have one.

    And I announce a certain time so the people who do NOT want this can pause for some minutes.


    Ah, makes sense.

    Better not ask me that ... or there might be someone coming down on me like a ton of bricks! *lol*

    You know:  ALL regions are nice!! depends on what you arte looking for! This region is for people who do not like water.

    Whell I am defenitely NOT looking for Doodah ... so who missed out ... second chance! Camper in


    will be abandoned in 25 minutes at 7:30 am SLT






    Since it's a new release, shouldn't you just abandon it right away without the announcement?  I don't understand the 25 minute wait.

    A funny thing happened to me.

    I took a trailer via auto-refresh, because I wanted the content pack. Textures are transfer, but things like lamps are no transfer. Rezzing in there, it looked so pretty that I thought: "I never really clicked with trailers, but this was a very nice place". I wanted to test if I could abandon it and grab it with an alt. So I did. It was hanging in Maintenance so long. The alt used up her 10 refreshes at least 4 times = refreshed the page 40 times. It still belonged to Governor Linden. Then she got a camper, and I thought yes, it went well. Just that it was another camper, what do you give me? 😋

    I logged her in asap and she abandoned it, but then the first camper was taken. I will never dare to do it again. This camper was not important, but other land could be.

    I like to hear the different situations that happen when people try that, or any situation for that matter.  So sorry that it did not work out for you, but you helped to possibly understand a bit more how the systems works. Or maybe not, since it seems unpredictable, too.  Thank you for sharing!

    I can't say it's completely the houses. I am dealing with some health issues right now as well, but even a slight amount of stress throws me in to a downward spiral. I appreciate the thought, and I am looking forward to being in more of a positive mindset once I can get some distance.

    I hope you will be feeling better soon, and I was thinking that maybe you can use the house hunting as something to look forward to.  Maybe there are other homes on lakes or rivers that we don't know about yet, and it could be a welcome surprise to you.  Hang in there and maybe think of it as fun, rather than a hopeless task. There has to be something out there for you...maybe even an abandoned one that will be right up your...river (alley)!  :)
