In this episode, Designing Worlds visits the new Second Life Continent of Bellisseria, where the new style Linden Homes are located, discovering the amazing communities that are are growing there and seeing some of the things that people have done with their new homes, as well as how the Lindens and the Moles have created some fascinating public spaces that enhance the communities.

DW410 – Bellisseria Community from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

In the show, we meet three of the people behind the Bellisseria Citizens Group, an important unifying force in the community: Mirah Vieria, Gingir Ghoststar and North Crannock. They tell us how the community has grown over the last seven months since we first visited – when the land was uninhabited and new. We visit the Fairgrounds, where residents can hold events, and some of the other cool places to hang out – both Mole-created and resident designed.

The Lindens (and the Moles) are catering for a wide variety of interests in Bellisseria, such as horse riders, dog owners and railway enthusiasts and – much to her delight – Saffia gets to swim with the Mers of Belliseria!

And we sent our intrepid photographer Wildstar Beaumont off with a very, very long list of the highlights of Bellisseria – it’s well worth seeing what he captured!

It’s also guaranteed to make you want your own new Linden Home – at least, Saffia went out after the show and got her own Linden Home (one of the smaller sized trailers) then had enormous fun furnishing it – and all on 175 land impact.

New Linden Homes on Bellisseria

In this episode of Designing Worlds we visited the new continent of Bellisseria, and found out all about the new Linden Homes with the aid of Patch Linden and a gathering of Moles!

DW398 – New Linden Homes from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

In the first part, we take a look at the original Linden Homes, and talk about some of the problems they encountered – the cramped feel of the regions, the lack of surrounding space for each home, and the lack of a community feel.

Then we move to the first two types of Linden Home released – the traditional homes and the houseboats. We talk with Patch Linden about the ideas that have gone into their construction, and the way that community spaces have been developed, centering around activities and places to visit, within the community itself.

And, of course, we take time to explore some of the possibilities you have with the homes, easily changing the styles and redecorating at will!

dw-special-2016-11-3_017The Designing Worlds special – where Patch Linden reveals the exciting news about the increase in prim allocation – is now available on the web.

Patch supplied a breakdown of how the new pricing structure would work, and also discussed the ways in which created could use the new land impact to improve mesh.

Prim increases

Prim increases

All the upgrades in prim limits will be automatic – with no cost. Mainland regions (including Linden Homes) are upgrading immediately. Private estates will be upgrading in the next couple of the months (once the Lab have assessed the effect on the mainland).

But the really exciting news that came out on the show was that of private island owners want to, they will be able to upgrade their prim limit to 30,000 by paying a one time upgrade fee of $US30 on a region, followed by a monthly payment of US$30. This seems quite a bargain for double the prims!

After the show, Patch and Saffia discussed the changes, with questions coming from the audience. Pantera Północy very kindly filmed this.

Designing Worlds’ meeting with Patch Linden and exploration of the fantastic builds created by the Linden Department of Public Works (otherwise known as the Moles) is now on the web!

We hoped we would meet some of the elusive Moles … but that was not to be.  However … some did sneak into the show so you can play the Chocolate Mole game as you watch this episode – every time you see a Mole – eat a chocolate!

The elusive Moles are creative residents of Second Life who – with special Mole surnamed avatars – work on Linden infrastructure, events and gifts.  Recently, a special island for the Moles has opened, known as the Meauxle Bureaux, which residents can visit.

But the work of the Moles extends over (and under) the mainland, as well as projects around the Portal Park – like the Haunted House for Halloween, the Winterfair, the Linden Realms and the Cornfield.  They have worked in partnership with residents on major developments like Bay City and Nautilus.

We talk to Patch Linden about the work of the Moles, and about his own work at Linden Lab.  He talks about the future of Second Life (as its own entity – and in relation to the new platform Second Life are buildingg) and about plans for development within Second Life – including in the Welcome Areas.
