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.

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?!

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.
