Hangars Liquides





Hangars Liquides will likely be disappearing soon, this after a decade.  A brief trip late one evening took me back to my early days when the cyber punk multi sim area was new and not only futuristic but state of the art in our prim-based world.  Time has passed, but it was still a pleasure to visit  -- and remember.

Questions about Tilia (updated)

Today, July 16th the official Tilia forum thread was closed.  While there were still unanswered questions from early in the thread as well as new ones (I posted two  over the weekend) there were no more ANSWERS from Linden Lab.


The official post advised citizens to contact support with their individual questions.


Remember you have until the end of the month if you want to make any Tilia specific changes -- such as sending dollars out to Paypal for the last time in order NOT to be required to accept the Tilia TOS and Privacy Statement.


If you are coming here from a web search, here is my history of Tilia with reference to the SL forums. 


Update: A week after the town hall meeting there was still no written transcript (officially promised - speedily even :D) and of course the FAQ page that was supposed to offer answers (also officially promised) was still closed.  It's been very quiet.   I am not so secretly waiting for the other shoe to drop. I am thinking maybe in three months.  Then again that shoe may stay on the edge of the bed --- in wait.

It is always a pleasure to see creativity in action.

From   -:zk: at Cosmopolitan  the Paulina Dress in a variety of denims with lace and belt texture change for a perfect styling to fit your mood. Beautifully textured. 


From MINIMAL, a group gift backdrop in two versions. The water is animated. A lovely present, both versions are now part of Backdrop City at LEA6 where you can find a variety of both geometric fashion backgrounds as well as full scenes in many genre types. Explore as there are roads and "alleys" that lead to about thirty environments prefect for photography and filming.

Tilia and YOU - Updated

This original post was updated at 2 AM on July 11th and several other times. Additional information in italics. 

I am not going to comment much about Tilia and the upcoming changes to Second Life here until AFTER the Tilia Town Hall Metting on FridayI am hoping some adjustments will be made to the original announcement; there certainly has been enough outcry to warrant some rethinking of position.

I and others have been VERY vocal however on the SL Forums (Tilia Takes Over thread).  It is very BAD form to make an official FAQ thread and then delete many long, thoughtful and important questions --- let alone not answer any of the hard questions for over a week now.


Here is your homework.

The official Tilia changes August 1 post from The Lab is HERE. 

The Tilia Terms of Service is here.

The Tilia Privacy Policy (only applicable to those in the US) is here.


Be informed. Make your own choices. 


Visit the Town Hall meeting or watch the video. It should be interesting to see the "spin".


Various updates as well as bullet points of the Town Hall can be found by continuing  with reading(long post; want to keep it all together).





******************************

Evening update:  


Post deletion continued throughout the day with many people repeating their original questions and demanding answers. Unfortunately comments continued to be deleted and the week and a half thread remained volatile with  arguments within the questions -- most to be deleted once again when a moderator returns to work.

Many questions still without answers include one of mine from nine days ago; it has been echoed and asked again by many other SL citizens:



 
This unprecedented (in my memory) truncation of  comments has caused some forumites to exit the thread, forums and perhaps Second Life. It is difficult to decipher the specific meaning of comments such as "that's enough of this -- I'm outta here".   One positive action was born of the vitriol, there will be a written transcript available of the Town Hall meeting -- this after many citizens agreed the record was necessary.



A forum comment from 2 AM (not mine):



I will post a link to that text when it is available, so return to this post if you have difficulty finding the printed word version of the proceedings.  


Edit: Friday, 7 - 12 at 1 AM

While I haven't been watching the Tilia FAQ thread as closely as I was it appears that The Lab has now decided to leave all comments in rather than delete some. So towards the end of the waning thread there are many bits of chatter that are NOT questions.  They have not returned previously deleted posts. The have not answered any further questions since Monday.


Edit Friday morning : Not long before the Town Hall was about to happen there was an official post to the FAQ thread stating the there had been a change and that NOW only those with USD balances in there account would need to agree to the the Tilia TOS.  This made me a very happy gal.


Edit Friday after Town Hall:

Overview and bullet points of Tilia Town Hall

OF COURSE  be sure and watch the event on your own or read the transcript and find out information that may pertain to your situation--  and check my interpretation. The original source is ALWAYS the best source.

My personal Tila questions were all either answered or had become a non-issue before the Town Hall. These are the bullet points that "I" personally found most interesting.   There were about 84 avatars at the meeting including Brett, Grumpity and Patch Linden.  

[Grumpity - not a quote see the transcript or video] Since OKing the Tilia TOS will only be needed by those with a current USD balance, then if people do not want to sign the Tilia TOS, they need to "get rid of their USD balance". 
I had already figured that out and plan to have accounts with a USD current balance (left over from premium payment) process their USD balance to Paypal before August 1 so that they will not have to OK the Tilia TOS (which was my personal end goal). 

[Grumpity - not a quote see the transcript or video] for those that have prepaid their membership on the recent "deal" and have a USD account balance that will not need to be used for over a year, they will not be charged the no activity fee as long as they have a premium membership. Beyond that, all people need to NOT get charged the fee would be to log into the their SL web account.   The fee will be no more than $3.00 US.   [Brett originally stated the $3.00 US fee as the maximum; it depends in part on laws from various areas.

[Grumpity - not a quote see the transcript or video]  Soon it will be easy to tell if you will need to supply personal information -- or MORE personal information for those that have already sent things in.  There will be some indication (like button and or link) that tells you if you are good to transfer credit OR if you will need to supply more information. 

[Brett - not a quote see the transcript or video] Tilia can ONLY be accessed via your SL website account. 

[Patch not a quote see the transcript or video]  There is a POSSIBILITY that people may be able to pay tier or membership directly with linden dollars - - thus keeping away from a US dollar balance.  This is NOT A PROMISE (that part is a quote :D) but something that The Lab is looking at. 


Things went smoothly. Grumpity could use a better microphone I think though -- she was pretty blurry sound wise compared to the very clear fellows.   



Many plans have changed from the original Linden Lab announcement, mostly because of people who were willing to take part in the process and explain their concerns and viewpoints. Not all questions asked were answer and likely not all will be, but I am very happy with the concessions made and I can personally continue with Second Life while upholding my moral beliefs. So for me personally this was a good conclusion. I am happy to have taken part.

Vanity Anniversary



Everyone loves a party and there is a great one going on over at the Vanity Event. It's anniversary time and gifts abound.   Not only are the prsents plentiful, they are outstanding.   Here are some of Sami's favorites.

Note that many present boxes are currently set to the wrong group. Clicking and clicking will NOT get those puppies into your inventory. But in time, they will likely be fixed.  Also not all presents packages contain gifts.  I will be heading over to pick up some favorites later in the week and more goodies may appear on these pages. Meanwhile, here is the rundown of just a few of the cornucopia of goodies.

Making Music




From Insomnia Store at Cosmopolitan, a really lovely and well-weighted "dress", Pearls Wrap Dress.  Now that is a fair amount of skin showing on this feminine number, too much for me I guess; I immediately categorized it as a "tunic". looked for leggings -- and then a bra top to cover up even more skin.   Whether you wear it as designed or use it as part of a collective styling, it is well worth demoing.

These Deep Static Chloe Glasses, come with an extensive hud to change color of frame parts and lenses as well as transparency of lenses and a resizer. Find them too at Cosmopolitan.

The rest of my styling includes the new rings from Kunglers at The Sense Event, Valeria Rings

A good companion piece if you are more of a covered up type of gal is the Stories&Co. Harlie Set half bra top tank.

My leggings are an older gift from alaskametro and most likely no longer available. Applier pants or tights will be need for lower covering up.

What's New in Bellisseria - July 1



The new traditional areas are well underway with several sims being completed and released. The landscaping is indeed gorgeous and there are more plants than in many of the original sims. Waterways, creeks and inlets add to the curb appeal and there are many excellent lots to be claimed.




On June 20th the new camping trailers were unveiled at SL16B. Four styles were featured with some variances of exterior textures for some models. This (my favorite) cedar siding tiny home was missing from the festive locale -- possibly because it is not in the 1950s theme.


















Most of us who have been watching the SSP sims over the last nine month are guessing that these will go on the mountainous area which are SSPE84 and their neighbors. There is no confirmation on that at this point, only hints on the SSP map.

On June 24th at the Meet the Lindens talk Patch unveiled the new plan for releases of homes.  M-W-F releases of on region which adds approximately 60 available plots per week. Current turnover as reported by forum folks rerolling is approximately six per day. That is completely unofficial but some folks are running refresher 24/7 so seems like they would have a pretty good idea. People in Europe seem to be doing better than those based in the US -- but one commented that they have a 5G connection which seems to make a big difference.



When questions about timing arose on the forums, Quartz Mole had this to say:





Also new on June 24th a new larger "tiny home" with lots of livability!  There will be eight trailers in all -- some camping and others more for homes.   See them all at the SL16B campgrounds.  The new versions of the trailers theme will be placed on 512 lots.  The 257 li (above) of the building  doesn't count against your plot.


The camper - trailers will be a main group release. No date on that yet; I am guessing August since the first inworld activity (SSP) showed up on the map on the 26th, but they may release sooner -- or not until September.

When asked (by me) to confirm the assumption that he said there would be later releases of 1024 plots with trailers, Patch replied:






An unofficial pole on the forums immediately after the release method change seemed to suggest that the majority of people were happy with the new release plan, but as the second release on Wednesday rolled around it became apparent to some that chances of getting a plot were still not good. The first 15 plots disappeared in a few seconds (like 2), the second release of 25 in about seven seconds (this from reports of people trying for them).  So a fair amount still of unhappy folks.


Personally, I gave up on my idea of making a community "halfway house" for all the homeless citizens; my alt purchased a very nice beach plot of mainland for $1,500 and that free tier 1024 parcel will be a new display area for my shop.  I am extremely happy that I was one of the first to get a parcel when the homes were released. That was a super fun day filled with much camaraderie and joy.  I can't say that the people trying to get a home now are having that same experience.


On July 28th Patch narrowed the release window. That day's plots went in three seconds in the early hours of morning.







This will likely be my last Bellisseria post for awhile. The new areas of traditional houses and houseboats will be happening for quite awhile and the process is well documented.  If you are interested in joining "The Chase for the Houses", I suggest watching the SL forums. Some folks seem to be enjoying the game within a game within a game; for me it was beyond frustrating and certainly not how I wanted to spend MY time :D    There are several ongoing threads about building, finding, getting and decorating the plots where you can keep abreast of happenings.



There is a new ferry boat at the new Bellisseria Fairgrounds. It takes awhile to arrive and is a bit choppy in its movement --- AND it dropped me in the middle of the bay! But it is cute. A friend told me it goes in a circle (sometimes, anyway). It may end up connecting to some part of the mainland at a latter date. The future will tell.

Meet The Lindens



The Meet The Linden talks start today at SL16B.   The stage has been moved today, so it is HERE not where you expect it to be :D.

EDIT: If you got in congrats. The auditorium seemed to be on lockdown which seems pretty strange. With only 33 people it couldn't be connected to. Flying didn't work (many tried) and the auditorium and surrounds (road too) disappeared in the mysterious transparent way it can.  The place is full now. It was working fine for me at 10 when another talk was going on.  Hopefully there will be a video.

50s attire not required, but fun.

Hop and Shop June 2019 - Store List and Highlights




It's that shopping extravaganza time again! Shop and Hop is a Linden sponsored event in connection with SL16B.

June 20th through July 7th

Credits:

Dead Dollz - Izabel - Azure

Hair: Lamb. Angel




Come celebrate, save some lindens and pick up 100 gifts -- how can you go wrong?  This summer's event features a large percentage of female wearables and plenty of hair. Home and Garden is well represented and there are fantasy niche brands sprinkled amid the more mundane genres.

There are a few shops for the menfolk, but  gals once again are the target market -- or at least were the brands who applied!   Each store should have a gift. My personal recommendation is to keep your inventory open so you can see if you really have the gifts you believe you picked up.

There are twenty shops per region and five regions to explore.   You can cam shop from adjacent sims, but my experience over the last few days leads me to believe the end zones work best for picking up demos and scoping out new creators. Most shops have either photos or the gift item out so that you can see; much less work when you only pick up what you think you can use.


Most (not all) shops have items discounted from 20 percent to 75 percent. There are some new marketing ploys this round too, so read careful and be good little consumers.  Note that some vendors (even the old legacy prim ones) will ONLY deliver if you are standing very close to them. This without lag and before opening. No clue as to why.

Dress down and stay on your toes if you venture over during the first couple of days.

Happily the hold also work with some furniture giving you even more photography options.  Choices include a crate option in various colorful flavors which gives out lemonade to guests.

Find them all at the No.59 booth.

What's New in Bellisseria - June




Commercialism

Our Bellisseria covenant has changed at least four times now -- maybe more since I don't bother to read it daily. And with the covenant info differing from both  the wiki or the Knowledge Base article, well it's pretty difficult to tell what rules should be followed.

A long and heated debate towards the end of May looked at the commercial aspects of living in Bellisseria asking what really was "legal" and what was not allowed.  The waters were murky.

On the June 4 Patch Linden address the question of commercialism on the new continent with comments that were clear and precise. Yes! 

So for those of you wondering, here are some forum quotes .


If a content creator is using a Linden Home as a display model to feature content they’ve created specifically for a Linden Home, this by itself is ok.  What you may not do is put up signage on the parcel that advertises it, your store, brand, redirect people away from the home for purchases, etc.  You can not sell items off your parcel.  

*  Also, the little cafe/pub type places that have popped up are really awesome and fun, but should also follow the same sorts of guidelines.


When Jeremy Linden's  Knowledge based article was updated (somewhat) for the new homes there was text referring to "commercial areas" (that seems to have been removed now) and several of us were discussing that on the forums.  Patch's update gives more hints to what that may have referred to:

We have other plans in place to satisfy requests for something like a yard sale, where you could feature Linden Homes add-ons in a communal area already in place, to come soon™.

Plot Roll Number Three




The next edition of the traditional homes appeared on Belliserria June 5, 2019. By the June 6 several regions will filled with homes, place-markers for homes and layout grids for homes. It was great fun to watch the process.  


Below is a shot from above with borders, and houses. Also in the process were bright green "Monopoly-like" pieces to show where house would set -- this for visualizing I assume in the landscaping process. 




On June 7 new sims were added to the Bellisseria continent filling in the landmass and adding areas for houseboats and a large communal houseboat area.



June 11th unveiled many new houseboat slips as well as a new dock and airstrip landmass with plenty of places to party. Or?    I am guessing maybe another "pickle hut".



By June 12th the map of the new lands looked like this:






With the empty grassy regions filled with more traditional homes, the ratio of homes over houseboats will be substantial. This seems optimal since the last roll was 709 houseboats with many folks taking a houseboat when they actually wanted a house.







By June 14th, many more houses and plots filled in the empty areas.  With plenty of work still to be accomplished there is no official word yet as to when the roll will happen.

And as my report posts, we can see the layout on the map for the new regions. It is looking great over there.




Plenty of work yet before Bellisseria can welcome more residents.
