Making Campers Great Again

Spring Break, 2021

I use to think that Campers were the worst theme. They only came with half the prims, half the land, and some random claustrophobic horse trailers. But I’ve recently changed my mind about campers… cos Chalet is now the worst theme. I’ll write about Chalets in another post, so let’s turn our attention back to campers.

Linden Homes, Sparkle Edition

https://www.flickr.com/photos/gogolita/51002014449/in/datetaken/

I have some news to share! As some of you may know, I’m a huge Linden Homes enthusiast. I have had one or a few of each theme type. Since Chalet homes have been released, I can finally tell you guys what has been happening with my Linden homes.

Several weeks ago, I noticed random landscaping objects got returned from my homes, followed by a notification email from Linden Lab. I re-read the covenant and found two rules that may have been ‘broken’:

*Objects that extend outside of your parcel can be returned without warning or notice.
*“Off region” decorations extending from your parcel are not allowed.

As far as I know, I have never done off region decorations, so they may have an issue with some things extending SLIGHTLY outside of the parcel boundaries. The object in question was in no way anchored off the lot, just pushed out a bit so it blended better with the surrounding rocks.

All is fair in Game of Homes (GoH)

**WARNING** This is a GoH post, it will make no sense to my regular fashion readers.

Let’s talk about this week’s Virtual Secrets. It has been over a decade since someone found me interesting enough to make a secret about me, so let’s talk about everything regarding this secret.

Linden Lab created a competitive environment, where they would only release one region at a time, so all of the homes are immediately snapped up within minutes. The best time to roll for a new home is during a new release and/or rolling-release (massive release of a new theme).

To add on to this stress, every premium account only has 5 abandons per 24 hour period, so even if many homes are available, you are limited in your chances to try. And unless you are rolling the minute you watch a region release, it’s incredibly hard to target a region.

When you are a Linden Homes enthusiast like me, you make some GoH friends along the way, these are the people that you run into all the time, on pre-released regions cos you both want a home on those regions. It’s true that I have a few Linden Homes, many of them I rolled during a rolling-release, and few were given to me by friends.

New Linden Home; Log Homes

Log Homes; Linden Home

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.

Do you currently have a Linden Home? Do you want a Log Home? Let me know in the comments!
