The 5th Linden Home theme is Log Homes! I’m kind of surprised since it’s pretty much more of the same. I am a huge beach home fan in SL, but I really want a snow chalet too, for some magical Winter wonderland photos. Go check out the Log Homes in-world before the launch.

Hello from Bellisseria South, the long-awaited Victorians have now been claimed by thousands of happy new homeowners. During the Linden Reveal 3 weeks ago, the southern addition to the continent was not public access, so we didn’t get to see the actual regions until the launch on December 16th.
Are these the victorian mini-mansions of your virtual dreams? I waited impatiently along with most of the Bellisseria residents for the 4th Linden Home theme reveal. You can go check them out right now at the SL Christmas Expo, an American Cancer Society charity fundraising event.
From what I can tell, there are 4 victorian home styles to choose from, three of the homes are two-story and one is a single-story cottage. I think the inside walls can be different colors, and the homes all have porches attached, which appears to have the option to select the porch to be on the left or right side of the home.
I don’t know why I’m not that excited about these homes. I think it’s the distressed textures, I am not a fan of super distressed furnishings in SL. I guess I’ll have to see if I can score a mini-victorian on the beach and turn it into a beachy victorian, LOL!! Did I ever tell you guys that I hate grass? Yea, I hate grass.
Have you checked out the new Linden Homes? Will you leave your current Bellisseria home for one of these or get a new account (10% off Premium Membership now) to have one? Let me know in the comments!
Are my neighbors lagging me on Bellisseria? Yes, the more densely populated a region is, the more chances of lag increasing due to scripted objects running on the region and nearby avatars causing you lag. I’ll write a blog post about Avatar Rendering Cost sometime, but I don’t find other avatars to be a problem since I don’t render them. However, since I am living communally on Bellisseria, I do care when my neighbors are using an excessive amount of scripts on their land and increasing lag for everyone on the region. Find out what causes lag and how to reduce lag on the official Second Life wiki.
Hi from the edge of my houseboat on Bellisseria! I never wanted a houseboat until two weeks ago, when I visited a friend’s houseboat. The view outside of the windows reflected gorgeous endless ocean. I fell in love instantly, and prayed to the Linden gods for a houseboat. Prayer answered.
I’m still getting the hang of decorating a houseboat, so it’ll be partially empty for awhile. I wanted a waterfront location to test how the light and sky reflects in the water, cos I’m making some custom EEP settings for personal use in the EEP viewer. Apparently EEP will go live very soon, so I recommend familiarizing yourself with it now!
