Submit a ticket for a Linden Home!

Look at this sweet new Linden Home I got by submitting a ticket! The process is so easy, even though rolling for one is fun too. I’ve acquired some of my favorite homes the regular way, by getting them on the Land Page. One of the perks of a Premium Plus membership is being able to submit a ticket for an available Linden Home. After I got my last Stilt Home, I said I was done. However, I noticed that all these fresh new stilts regions were named yesterday, so I submitted a ticket for one and it was delivered today. Thank you once again, to Whitney Linden! I picked this house because it’s situated on a peninsula and the back deck faces an unblockable ocean view. Pro tip! Avoid any regions that are on void edges, because the chances of them getting blocked are likely.

You can choose your Linden Home?!

You can choose your Linden Home?!

Have you ever wished that you could select your Linden Home? Many people have asked me how I was able to select my stilt home using the Premium Plus choose your Linden Home concierge service, so I’m here to show you exactly how to do it.

Is your dream home available?

Before you upgrade your account to Premium Plus in order to use this service, make sure you map Bellisseria and create SLurls to available homes. Keep in mind that popular Bellisseria themes are frequently sold out and the homes are instantly available on the Land Page, you won’t be able to file tickets for those homes with any success. Newly released themes are more abundant, so you will have much better luck filing a ticket for a home.

Premium Plus is coming!

I went to SL19B to meet the Lindens! Patch Linden gave an exciting interview with hints about the upcoming Premium Plus membership, which will be available on June 23rd, 2022.

For 30 days, the introductory price will be $24.99 per month.

Newbrooke, Linden Homes

@ Newbrooke; new Linden Homes

Hello from Newbrooke! These new modern-style homes are available in 512 or 1024 sqm. I don’t love these homes, but I’m warming up to them! There’s a lot of potential here, especially if you like the modern aesthetics. Like previous themes, you can choose to have any Newbrooke home style on your land.

Stiltlandia

Seaside

Hello from my Stilt swamp! My favorite thing about my little Stilt home is the sand everywhere. The next Linden Home theme is most likely something “fantasy” to tie in with Second Life’s latest live-action commercial and SL18B theme, but I’m still hoping for desert sand with tents and camels.

Making Campers Great Again

Spring Break, 2021

I use to think that Campers were the worst theme. They only came with half the prims, half the land, and some random claustrophobic horse trailers. But I’ve recently changed my mind about campers… cos Chalet is now the worst theme. I’ll write about Chalets in another post, so let’s turn our attention back to campers.

Linden Homes, Sparkle Edition

I have some news to share! As some of you may know, I’m a huge Linden Homes enthusiast. I have had one or a few of each theme type. Since Chalet homes have been released, I can finally tell you guys what has been happening with my Linden homes.

Several weeks ago, I noticed random landscaping objects got returned from my homes, followed by a notification email from Linden Lab. I re-read the covenant and found two rules that may have been ‘broken’:

*Objects that extend outside of your parcel can be returned without warning or notice.
*“Off region” decorations extending from your parcel are not allowed.

As far as I know, I have never done off region decorations, so they may have an issue with some things extending SLIGHTLY outside of the parcel boundaries. The object in question was in no way anchored off the lot, just pushed out a bit so it blended better with the surrounding rocks.

Coastal Living

Coastal Living

Hello from my new Linden Home! I am in love with the sweet little Alderley Traditional Linden Home. This home has a small footprint and not many rooms to decorate, cos I don’t have that many prims!

Coastal Living

I decided I wanted a pastel cottage for this coastal home, and the only way to achieve that is with a shell or an add-on. I found this great Alderley Tudor Cottage Add On from BH&G, which includes a shell, porch, pergola, interior wall partition, and decor! You can use the whole package and have an instantly beautiful home, or mod it to reduce land impact.

Starlight Skies

Starlight Skies

Hello from Starlight Skies! This is my friend Sparkle’s Linden Home that she turned into a magical sparkly forest. She was able to accomplish a lot on a prims budget! Depending on what happens with region pricing once Linden Lab is fully on the cloud; we might bring back some of our regions. I’m ready to do a beach region and park it next to Sparkle’s sparkly forest.

All is fair in Game of Homes (GoH)

**WARNING** This is a GoH post, it will make no sense to my regular fashion readers.

Let’s talk about this week’s Virtual Secrets. It has been over a decade since someone found me interesting enough to make a secret about me, so let’s talk about everything regarding this secret.

Linden Lab created a competitive environment, where they would only release one region at a time, so all of the homes are immediately snapped up within minutes. The best time to roll for a new home is during a new release and/or rolling-release (massive release of a new theme).

To add on to this stress, every premium account only has 5 abandons per 24 hour period, so even if many homes are available, you are limited in your chances to try. And unless you are rolling the minute you watch a region release, it’s incredibly hard to target a region.

When you are a Linden Homes enthusiast like me, you make some GoH friends along the way, these are the people that you run into all the time, on pre-released regions cos you both want a home on those regions. It’s true that I have a few Linden Homes, many of them I rolled during a rolling-release, and few were given to me by friends.
