I have to agree with many here, I'm afraid.
After being in-world for several years and seeing these new homes advertised, I finally upgraded to Premium a couple of days ago (paying for 12 months upfront). I am really disappointed to find that not enough of the houseboats and homes have been built!
I also find it rather cheeky to say the least that the Lindens are quite happy to offer me one of the older style homes right now, when in their own words "Old Linden Homes will be phased out over time..."
Surely, they should stop anyone from signing up to a new home that could be demolished in a matter of months!
There, moan over...
