Linden Homes Search

Sunshine
In my Stilt Linden Home

Hello from my Linden Home! By April of this year, it will have been 4 years since I claimed my first Linden Home. Time goes by quickly! I’ve been thinking a lot about my Linden Homes, including how much I’m spending on my region. I won’t say how many Linden Homes I had at my peak, but I have four of them now. I’ve given up homes in the same theme in the past month and decided to just keep one with any theme I like. I’m still trying to leave even more, and unless the next theme interests me, I’ll probably end up with just three homes. Like everyone else, I’m still waiting for those 2048 Linden Homes.

Since the Concierge Linden Home service for Premium Plus came out, people have asked me to leave my homes so they can ticket for it. Sorry, but that’s not how it works. Abandoned homes go into a queue for anybody to get from the Land Page on the Second Life website. I’ve always thought the ticketing process was highly inefficient and there has to be a more instant solution. Even if I wanted to abandon a house for someone to use their Premium Plus to claim, they can’t without risking the house being taken by other residents.

Joy to the grid! I look forward to the month of December for all of the fabulous events and free gifts. My inventory is exploding from Shop and Hop. Just when I think I’m all caught up, the LeLutka Holiday Special begins and there are gifts from 54 designers. The event ends on December 30th, so you have a few days left to get the gifts before they’re gone. Check out the Seraphim shopping guide for a closer look at the items.

Snowball Fight

Snowball Fight

This was my first time attending the Snowball Fight, and I was pleasantly surprised to learn that being a Premium member comes with its perks, including the best gun available – the SnowZooka (not pictured)! It was great for taking on the Lindens and Moles, and I even spotted Patch Linden hiding under a waterfall.

Winter Day

Winter Day

Hello from Aurelias! We launched the region around this time last year, so we’re very excited to celebrate our second winter. We’ve brought back the snow and the Christmas tree on the town square, and we’ve built a lot of cozy places for you to explore and enjoy all around the area. Come take a look!

Linden Homes; New Houseboats styles

Linden Homes; New Houseboats styles
Dock Holiday

New Houseboats styles have landed on Bellisseria! This update brings the choices of houseboats up-to-date, which was long overdue. All the new houseboats have new colors on the outside and a new color HUD system for the walls inside.

The new Linden Homes Houseboat styles are:

  • Dock Holiday (my favorite, very cute)
  • Jolly Roger (huge, ugly floor texture on the roof)
  • Knot Shore (kind of cute, lots of windows)
  • Shore Thing (a maze on the inside, ugly over-hang on the outside)

The older houseboats styles did not get the color HUD update, which is a shame. It’s clear that the Lindens have been paying attention to what residents do to their houseboats since the updates seem to be geared toward people who like to add more floors and rooms. I’ve never liked the look of big houseboats, so I’m not looking forward to being surrounded by the Jolly Roger model.

What is Midjourney?

Made my Second Life avatar in MidJourney

You may have seen Second Life creators selling images made with Midjourney, but what is it? Midjourney is a computer program that uses artificial intelligence to make pictures based on text prompts. At the moment, the bot on Discord is the only way to use Midjourney. I paid $10 a month to play around with the program. It’s a lot of fun to have AI make anything you can think of right away, but sometimes the results are weird.

Most of the images I’ve made are based on my Second Life avatar. I use a photo of my avatar as a reference, then I add a text prompt to try to make something more detailed than what I can do in Second Life or in photoshop.

New Second Life Membership Plans

Second Life just announced a new membership plan called Plus, which gives residents the right to own mainland and that’s it. Is it worth the money? I compare these new plans by only looking at the benefits that interest me, such as the land allowance, the stipend, and the perks that come with linden homes. I was shocked to find out that the Plus plan does not include a linden home, and the price is nearly equal to the Premium plan.
