Launched on 15 April 2019, Bellisseria is the new Linden Home continent. Linden Homes are a premium member benefit where monthly land fees are waived.
If you have a premium account and you have at least 512 sqm of available tier, then you qualify for a Linden Home. For example, if you have a new premium account — you’ve just joined Second Life as a premium account or upgraded from a basic account — and haven’t changed your land usage, then you have exactly 1024 sqm of available tier.
There are currently four themes with another expected to be announced either this week, or next. They are:
Suburban homes on 1024 sq m parcels. The homes are one and two-story buildings with shingle roofs.
You cannot travel on a houseboat, but each houseboat parcel has room for you to moor your own sailboat or other watercraft.
8 different models set on 512 sqm (16m X 32m) parcels in wooded regions.
All homes in this theme are on 32 x 32m parcels and sited in the sort of small community that would have been new 150 years ago.
The Linden Home land grab
There are four old, legacy, themes of Linden Home. Meadowbrook, Tahoe, Elderglen and Shareta Osumai. These homes are still available but are very dated and not as popular as the Bellisseria homes. The Linden Home page on the land section of the website will frequently show no Bellisseria homes available but as people abandon them, they briefly appear on the list once the page is refreshed, As new regions and themes are released, these appear on the list and will typically result in more abandons of other homes. There are a lot of residents home hopping, selecting homes then abandoning them, in order to secure themselves a prime location.
The rules of home hopping
Every resident has 10 browser refreshes every 10 minutes on the land page. If you exceed these you are locked out until 10 minutes passes.
if you abandon and choose a new Linden Home five times in 24 hours, you are temporarily blocked from choosing another. You will need to wait 24 hours before trying again.
The Bellisseria Fairground is open to all Premium Residents of Second Life to use for their events. Private events that require the Fairgrounds to be restricted to a certain list or group of people are not a good use for the space; however, if you are happy to welcome anyone to your events then the Bellisseria Fairgrounds is a great place to choose to plan your next party, get together, shindig or whatever!
Any Premium member can reserve the Bellisseria Fairgrounds for their event, though preference will be given to members of Bellisseria Resident groups. While any public event is welcome at the Fairgrounds, we encourage the planning of events that contribute to and support the Bellisseria community spirit.
