Pasta Making Time



This is the best Fifty Linden Friday I have seen in awhile so make sure you check out all the offerings.

Here, a pasta making board from Dust Bunny. Beautifully detailed. Beware if your computer isn't hefty though; this is heavy mesh. You can see the demo inworld at the sales point and check it out. Very pretty!!!

KOPFKINO - Farmhouse Flair - Utensils tray

Boat Lounging



New from Tromp Loeil, the Hyannis Boat Lounge which comes in natural as well as a lighter version. Both pillows and cushion have texture change options.  Beautifully detailed, it has long LODs for outdoor use.  This takes up a fair amount of room and weighs in at 14 land impact.  Find it at Uber.

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.


Here is the rundown of speakers:

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.

Birthday regions and Hop and Shop stores open tomorrow at 10.  Over on the forums there is MUCH speculation going on re the new style of Bellisseria homes.  All will be revealed soon.

Lemonade Lounging



New here at Tres Chic, a big collection of frosty lemonade in classy wire top bottles -- and with Bento holds. 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. Typing "cheers" in chat instigates a toast.  Single bottles and groups of bottles act as decor props and there is a wearable option that comes with a hud that let's you choose between four Bento holds as well as turning drinking on or off. Find them all at the No.59 booth.


From Cherry Bloom at Cosmopolitan, the Alexa dress with panties comes in six basic plain colors or choose the fatpack for a large variety of plains and prints.

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.

MMM June



It's Monthly Midnight Madness time. Grab your HUD from the group archives and head over to your favorite spots.  Claim your prizes before the clock runs out, or if you are sleeping in, purchase the items at a low cost (sometimes even free to store group members.


You will need to drop most of your mesh parts in order to have an avatar complexity below 25,000. That's the new target that must be met for prize delivery. 

Here are just two of the gifts you can pick up before noon -- or until they are gone.

Toppers



It's a good time to be premium if you have been trying to get into Cosmopolitan. Not only are this round's offerings creative and fun, there are presents --- and we all like presents.


Soon, getting in will be a bit easier. In the meantime along with some great Home and Garden items, summer tops won many thumbs up from my gals. So here we are with a few of the items you can look forward to in the 7th Anniversary Event.

Beachside




It's getting to be that sun and surf season, frilly girlie dresses in bright colors and all the other good things that happen when the sun shows its smiling face.


From -Sorumin at Cosmopolitan,  Beach Dress (well that's a simple designation). Lots of bright stripes and plains as well as my favorite, this sunny print.

Grab your quarter and take a chance (no rares) on these cute camp canoes from Trompe Loeil.  Both singles and couples animations.  Several pretty colors.

Clean and Tidy




Another fun new release at Cosmopolitan, the KOPFKINO - Washing Day gacha offers so many beautifully model items for your home laundry and mud room.  A big set includes several items that wouldn't fit into my shot. Oh my!

The colors are gray scale with blue.  A caveat here as these items are for the most part not a "game assets" meaning in this case you could think of them as "primmy". So they will not work well for folks on land impact budgets. Still, if you have the land and a hefty computer, this is a lovely set. 

Oh, and there is a coordinating piece to pick up as a gift. Don't miss that if you like "cheeky"!
