  1. This again? Sigh... Sooo... let me guess? Let's all get our sickles and go in a witch hunt of sorts right? Look, that guy doesn't have enough trafic in his parcel! Away with him. And there! That other completely unknown person doesn't have any prims in his parcels! Begone with him! That one does have 6 LI in his parcel, so that's a completely different case. He is worthy to stay! See where this is going? You will have people judging others without knowing the truth behind why their parcel aren't used enough as per your personal opinion. Worst: we already have people "checking" other people's parcels, in order to see how many prims are there, how much trafic, existence of a skybox, etc... And somehow, this kind of behavior is supposed to "bring us together as a community"? Really?
  2. Okay, this is straight from the man himself... "[15:34] Patch Linden: I predict that they will not launch before 7am SLT tomorrow" But then, he did: "[15:34] Patch Linden shakes his 8 ball for some more advice" So, heh, who knows, right?
  3. Okay, that does it! I motion to a vote that for now on the word "soon" shall be completely eradicated from any mole or linden vocabulary! It shall be replaced by the words now, instantly or momentarily.
  4. Quartz Mole just confirmed the current position guys " Quartz Mole: ? The new regions that have appeared to the North East corner of Bellisseria are in their final position"
  5. Hey! I just realized once they are released we will be 6 sims shorter to the Satori connection dream! We're almost getting there! Almost! Err... okay, I might have been mildly exaggerating here, but still, progress, right?
  6. Yes. Yes! Any minute now... within the next few days, that is
  7. Laggy? Possibly, but theoretically that could be solved by lowering ones fov, right? We do get a whole sim of water, at least, between both. Official name? No idea, but "Pickle Island" is probably going to be its unnofficial name, at least. I mean, it even has a named bar after it, right? 😛 And yes, this will be excellent for sailing. Too bad the moles didn't open up a bit more around Pickle Island. If they did, circumventing it would probably become a thing. As it is right now, there are a few houseboats that gets in the way, which means one would have to go through it in order to get to the other side. But yeah, that new channel looks gold for general boating.
  8. I would be very, very surprised if this happens. Why? Because the moles have already started setting up each parcel. If they change its location, they would have to do it all over again. I believe what we are seeing now is, indeed, the final placement.
  9. Thank god! If that ever goes offline, then I think SL is gone for good
  10. This! You're charged for peak land usage on a given period. Even if for just a couple of hours. The tier per se doesn't mean you will pay for it. But if you actually use the land (or donate it), then you will be charged for the biggest amount you used.
  11. Not necessarily. And, again, I'm not (or trying to, at least) taking sides here, just trying to remember arguments from back in the day. i.e. I did manage to get a house, and learned about it in game, in one of the groups I'm part of before I read it here. And because people didn't know beforehand, those houses were available for 48hrs. Maybe, if this was given a proper time frame, they would be gone much sooner, as more people that go to the forums would know about it, and prepare accordingly. By not giving us a precise estimate, the biggest "advantage" we have is that we know when they are available once it's finally released. And those of us that aren't able to claim it at the time (RL issues, no internet, etc) will all be in equal grounds since no one had any information previous to its release. The argument back then was something of the sorts, if I'm not mistaken.
  12. Back in 2004-2005 this was discussed ad nauseam on the forums when the first land program was a going thing. There were people asking for a timeline, so they could better prepare in order to try to catch the land they wished, and those that argued that this would give an unfair advantage to those that follow these forums which, at the time at least, was a vast minority of all Second Life users. Not taking any side here, but it became clear that LL agrees with the last group since then. These type of things are never given a precise estimate. "It will be available when it's available" is how these things usually go. As such, I would be very (but pleasantly) surprised if LL gives us anything besides a "soon". Shockingly surprised, even It would be one of those times where I would love to be wrong, you know?
  13. Sincerely? I would love having the ability of limited movement of the Linden House placement itself. And the direction it's facing. Nothing major, but just enough so we could better align it to things surrounding it, and possibly choose which windows gets which view, within a limited range, of course. Another plus of such ability is that the neighborhood as a whole would possibly look quite a bit more "organic", with neighboring houses not in the exact same location within its parcel and facing the exact same direction.
  14. If you're talking about truly gorgeous sims, the likes that get featured in sites like Inara's, etc... I guarantee that very, very rarely that can be done in a week. A month (considering planning, building, etc), if lucky, would be a much more realistic number. Possibly way more. Still, let's work with that "one week" number of yours: The next "batch" of Linden Homes will be the "Pickle Island" Houseboats, which has 40 sims in total. If each took one week, it would take the moles 10 months (!) to finish just that. Instead, they will probably deliver that in little over a month. That's roughly 8-10 sims per week. All carefully manually done and tested, with no copy-paste stuff in it. Considering the end result, that's a pretty amazing job if you ask me. Just saying
