  1. Welcome to the Bellisseria's community blues cafe. We wanted to give something back to the community, a place to gather, socialize and enjoy a cup of java (we have whiskey and beer, too) . A place where we could share our stories. The excitement of a new community on a beautiful continent that Linden Labs created, not just for the premium members that are nestled into the houses and houseboats across the regions, but all members of Second Life. A place for those already residing here and those waiting, eager with anticipation to hold residence on this gorgeous landscape. Its a friendly place, set on a bluff overlooking the sea and rows of houseboats below. The most exciting thing about Bellis Blues Café is the music! Offering the only blues music venue on Bellisseria. Our goal is to hold events with live DJs, providing the music we all love. This will include not only blues music, but giving patrons a diverse listening pleasure to all genre of music as they visit the coffee house to mingle among their friends, dance and share their stories. Providing a community place is a work of dedication by many. @Chic Aeon offered her skills and designed the addition to the building along with her interior decorating flare. Cian and I, were very excited to have her onboard to help launch this venue for the community. The cafe is open 24/7 to any and all that wish to stop on by, relax, listen to music, dance and find a bit of solace, or celebration and a slice of Bellisseria they can call their own. Most of all, to those without a home, come to the cafe, make this place your own. Let off a little steam from the frustration, share your thoughts with others seeking a home and find commodity together, become a part of the community with the rest of us. I'll be reaching out to the Pirate DJs of Bellisseria, in hopes of scheduling events at the blues cafe to feature your music style. If anyone would enjoy volunteering their time to host/hostessing here, please contact me. Also, if you have skills at management and would like to volunteer your time at the cafe, scheduling events and making up a calender, send me an IM or notecard in world to: prudenceanton Please be sure to join our group when you visit the coffee house so we can keep you updated on events for the community. Note: This is a faux community establishment and not a real business. Its a non profit place, abiding by LL covenant. (This covenant is subject to change in accordance with LL ToS) Credits and thanks to: @Chic Aeon for her generous contributions to the cafe. @Dick Spad for the photos of the Bellis Blues Café Landmark to Bellis Blues Café : http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Domingos/38/241/36
  2. Since there is no thread yet about it, and it has been pretty much confirmed (atleast the plans) that there should be a Train sometime in the future roaming areas of Bellisseria... here it is! Patch Linden talked about plans of a new train for Bellisseria at the SL16B. No details were really given, but it was mentioned that would relate in some way to the current SLRR. Here is a view of Mole Island 30 where appears to be train tracks in an oval shape, with a locomotive at the north side of the tracks, a small train station and couple track switches (Blue rectangle). This could be or could be not the actual train being developed, but is a good conversation starter.
  3. What kind of kitchens are you all using in your traditional homes? Has anyone found a kitchen that isn't prim heavy? I am in the Winchester model and my kitchen's LI is around 55. This is my current kitchen. I like it but would like the LI to be a little lower. How about some pictures of your kitchens!! It's LAQ.
  4. This isn't about houses, because I don't want one. It's about exploring the new area and what I've found so far. I had issues finding landmarks as only one is in search, so I thought this might help others who don't have time to walk around the whole thing. Other people also might have found some things I haven't, so let me know! The first location is the one in search, which is the fairgrounds. This'll be great for vehicles, as there's an open rez area for the dock and for the airstrip. There are other open rez docks elsewhere, but this is the only one I found for air vehicles. All round, this area is good for flying with the sandbox and security rules. I only got warned once when I was flying a bit lower with my flying boat. The dock/pier area also has a water taxi that goes to one of the lighthouses and the Bellisseria mainland. I didn't find any other similar taxis around the area, so if I missed one, I'd be interested in knowing where they are. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Bellisseria%20Fairgrounds/128/128/23 There are a bunch of lighthouses. The most useful is Kuga Lighthouse. It's at the start of a corridor of water sims that end at the old mainland/Pyri Funfair. I don't believe there's a ferry here, though it's set up as though there could be later. The corridor water is deep enough for a small submarine or mershroomie. There currently aren't any points of interest on the route that I could see. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Kuga/39/82/21 The Squishy Pickle was tricky to find, as people kept talking about it, but not saying where to find it. I got my free pickle on a stick. No one was hanging out when I was there, but I can see why it's a useful location for parties. http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Brodovima/116/88/28 I didn't see any signs of the train yet, but there's still a lot of open space in the middle.
  5. Alright, lets talk about Bellisseria roads and road vehicles for a second. We all have seen nicely done boat rez zones conveniently placed around the continent. They all have reazonable space and are clearly marked to let everyone know you can rez your water vehicle there. We have also seen couple air strips appearing in the area, each one with their own dedicated rez zone for aircrafts (not clearly maked but atleast they are there), but lets talk about Road vehicles and road rez zones... Bellisseria has a problem with road vehicles rez zones. Current road rez zones seems to be placeholder or temporary solutions. They are all currenly found on undeveloped regions arround the developed areas, nothing in between. They are also lacking any kind of marking to let people know of their existance. Newly developed areas seems to also not take vehicle rez zones in consideration as there is none to be found to the date of this post. I am personally hoping that these rez zones has their own space on the developers list of things to have as road vehicles are certainly important when the continent has so much space dedicated to roads alone, and a large community with big interest for road vehicles. Let's make sure they are not forgotten shall we? Is not lag, or your bad driving... the roads are actually broken. Maybe you have noticed that driving around Bellisseria is not exactly a smooth experience. You are not crazy... roads has some issues you can't really see. Bellisseria roads seems to be the first road by the LDPW made out of mesh pieces and they aren't exactly perfect. After some driving, I noticed my vehicles were pretty bouncy, specially on curves. I also had many issues with my vehicles simply refusing to move, randomly, in some areas.. just revving the engine without moving. Upon closer inspection I realized that the road custom colission shapes had various problems that caused various types of issues with the vehicles. These problems has been properly reported and we hope to see them fixed soon. More on that: https://jira.secondlife.com/browse/BUG-227210 Bellisseria is a great place to take a drive! The continent is without doubt one of the top mainland areas to take a scenic drive. Let's support improvements like these to help polish that experience!
  6. Navigating the Bellisseria roadways can be confusing. As I am riding my scooter or jogging I tend to have to stop and look at the map to figure out where I am. Can the streets be named? It could even be done as a contest perhaps. I just think little roadway signs on the intersections would be a nice touch.
  7. I have a recently growing confussion regarding Second Life's meanings when it comes to Advertisement and Branding and hopefully an official source could put light onto the subject. Recently there has been plently of mentions regarding advertisement and commercial activities on Linden Lab official things like Linden Home Covenants and SL16B Guidelines. What I understand on these is that branding is being seen as commercial advertisement, but is not exactly clear. For example: Recent changes to Linden Homes covenant as described by Patch linden: "As a note of clarification and to call out a specific use case example: If a content creator is using a Linden Home as a display model to feature content they’ve created specifically for a Linden Home, this by itself is ok. What you may not do is put up signage on the parcel that advertises it, your store, brand, redirect people away from the home for purchases, etc. You can not sell items off your parcel. What you can do is direct people to your Linden Home as a demonstrator of your creations from elsewhere (your main store or marketplace listings). Also, the little cafe/pub type places that have popped up are really awesome and fun, but should also follow the same sorts of guidelines." SL16B Exhibitor Policies: " Your display at the event should not be commercial. Exhibits promoting buying and selling of goods and services do not fit in with our policies and theme. Any part of an exhibit that violates this rule will be removed. While commerce is a very important part of SL, this is a party, not a mall or sales fair. No selling is allowed and no advertising will be permitted. " What does the word brand means for Linden Lab and what exactly falls under advertisement? It is extremely common in Second Life for users to advertise a variety of things in many ways. The most clear way of advertising would be using logos with messages that would direct others to either visit a location, a website, open a group, etc, often of stores or content creators, but the problem starts when they also advertise groups that are not exactly identified as stores or paid services. They can be advertising groups of people with something in common, or a society with same interests, or even a legitimate non-profit organization. Eeven these cases that are not stores by the mean of the word, they do also have a brand, often a logo that identifies these groups, societies and non-profits, and those logos or brands are also widely used by Second Life users on all kinds of situations. Now, what I understand is that branding is branding no matter what the brand is for, the brand purpose or what it represents. I also understand that branding does not necesarily means advertisement. A logo could be use in a way of showing support, giving credit, or simply the logo is part of an object or texture already and there is no intention from the user to use it as a way of advertisement or brand awareness. There are numerous cases of logos (or branding) being use for other purposes that are not commercial, for example: Belliseria houseboats commonly features large yellow flags with a logo that represents a group. These homeowners clearly don't intend to commercialze the land with these, but non the less, the logos are a brand and they could be seen as advertisement depending where Linden Lab draws that line. Would be interesting to know what other people thinks about this matter, and if someone has been affected by perhaps some loopholes that may exist giving this situation.
  8. I really like Bellisseria. Good job, Moles of Linden Labs! I think the homes are cute and an improvement. I like the sailable waters, the streets, the community areas.... I already appreciate the friendly community chatters, and I look forward to my partner and I both having a house (or 2) in Bellisseria. I've joined several of the groups already, and I watch the progress daily. I am on my dashboard trying really hard to be one of the lucky F5 key hitters to claim a Bellisseria home. And I am okay with the premium membership increase. It really wasn't that much of an increase... And being a premium member has always been worth it to me. I love having access to 4 sims of sandbox. But I have a thought. If Linden Labs would simply increase the weekly Linden Stipend to Premium members it would really sweeten the pot. Just a suggestion.... ❣️
  9. Everyone has heard of the game "Where is Waldo?" How about we start a new tradition in Bellisseria... "Where is Bellisseria Squirrel?" Keep your eyes peeled on the continent of Bellisseria and if you manage to spot our little friend snap a photo of her and post it up here for everyone to see where she is at... Post a photo and post the name of the sim you found her in! Here she is today at her home in Crowsnest enjoying her new hobby of fishing!
  10. So, as I so often feel about LL, they have good ideas and are headed in the right direction, but I feel like they misread the motivations of residents pretty often. Bellisseria is not a jumping off point, it's a long sought destination. I've talked to quite a few Bellisserians about this and a theme has emerged: oldbees (like me) after years are rediscovering what is good about SL, prompted by a newfound sense of community. The new continent, with it's banning of banlines & beautiful, public congregation spaces is encouraging us to get to know each other & open our homes & hearts and that's what we wanted from SL all along. Many if not most of us call this home now and if we move at all (unlikely since the community sense in Bellisseria is rooting itself quickly and deeply) will likely move to other new homes on different themed LL continents as they are built. So, I really believe, LL should rethink the whole idea that these are "starter" homes we'll graduate from. That is not how the citizens with the longest term commitment to SL are perceiving this, by and large. Know your market, LL.
  11. One thing I am noticing is there is a really active social scene going on in Second Life. How about a place to post your casual party photos to highlight the fun we are all having... Just a little selfie to kick things off from the pool party that broke out in Hartnell today... PARTY ON!!!
  12. Beautiful parcel with protected sunrise views overlooking sail able water (the water directly below the cliff is a rez zone, so you can actually go down rez a boat and sail to the new Linden Bellissria area). 1024 SQM 351 PRIMs - $18,900L Come have a look: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Whitlow/253/22/48
  13. If you want people in the know who will show when you're ready to go, and please pass the word on to others who don't hang out in the forums. The link to Bellisseria Happenings is in my sig and I'll be adding a Link to our fine paper, The Bellisserian, which will be covering events. Free buzz is a hard thing to get these days, so bookmark and share
  14. Since Ziggy posted about the Bellisseria cat, I've been wondering how many of you intend to RP in Bellisseria & what will you be... we have sanitation workers and cafes already. Will there be a Montessori school? Who will drive public transit & school buses? Library? Palm Reader? How do we RP in a way that encourages family , community & fun but respects the boundaries of those who don't wish to partake?
  15. Bellesseria appears to be made for cycling. The moles did a fantastic job creating an extensive network of roads along with diverse terrain and landscaping. Plus there is ample open space if you just like to ride free form. To get things started, I have created a bike tour that circles the existing connected land (as of May 20, 2019). The "Bellesseria Big Loop Bike Tour" chart shows where it goes but you really need a nav HUD, so I have provided one. Everything you need is at the Beckridge Gallery http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Beckridge/201/138/25 , including a guest bicycle. Have Fun!
  16. Hello everyone, This post is specially meant to be about the Waterways around Belliesseria I haven't yet expressed my opinion about or shared my suggestions for Bellisseria in any community topic but I will say in general.. Bellisserisa is AMAZING! it's been exciting (still is) and definitely a major step forward.. or lets say a high jump into the sky in terms of improvements, and SL is the only place in which we can fly without limits! It's absolutely overwhelming to see this huge amount of attention, participation and love for the new continent, finally a beautifully-made community connects residents together not only through Bellisseria but also through all of the Mainland. it's all about connecting... and by this I don't mean the gnarly sim-crossings! which is one of the most challenging issues throughout virtual simulators, of course it depends on various factors but mildly still works to get you there and sometimes perfectly - based on a standard - most of the time when it doesn't go wrong. (lets keep it positive shall we? *wink*) So, who doesn't like water and everything associated with it? you probably choose a beach or somewhere near the sea when going on vacation! ... now in the matter of discussing water in the virtual world; it's proven that waterfront is the most desired and valued location for land, either for the view or navigating abilities, a parcel of oceanfront land is most likely to be occupied at all times (evidently the quick sell-out of the new houseboats and the high demand on them in particular). Then why not have more of it? I suggest adding more water sims while LL has done a brilliant job in that matter.. wow, thank you, more please! 'Openspace' Mainland sims; they're efficient and do the job with minimum costs. Let's hope LL is going to add more and more of Coastal Waterways everywhere on the Mainland, This will revive more areas and best of all connect more and open new possibilities for boating and flying and all kinds of fun water activities. Here is a cup of water for y'all.. Cheers! P.S: oops! its water from a Linden Ocean.. is it salty or had LL managed to make it sweet?
