New years, new ambitions, new armors

15 01 2009

I know, I am about half a month late there but a happy new year to everyone.

New year, new groups, new motivation, new products could also be a headline for this.
After the last year being devilishly busy, this year started somewhat calm
during holidays I was even able to build some new things.

One of those was my new mainstore,of which I will report in some following post. I

I felt quite honoured, as the folks of Public Sandbox Group (PSG), a group of gifted builders,
who run several sandboxes like at Hyboria, Mauve, Columbine and Kings Bishop and who teach people to build,
invited me to join their ranks.

Due to this I returned to building in sandboxes instead of working alone up on my shops skyplatform.
And it seems to be true enough that company forwards creativity.

Soon after starting again to hang out there, I dug out some old project idea: the Panzerklein

A powerarmor that will protect you from all hardships of life

This is a concept, I saw in a computer game once (and even though suspected by some, it was not
Bioshock) where people used self propelled armor-suits with heavy weaponry.

Except for the heavy weapons I liked that idea and decided to give it a try. Ad finally here is the result.
A steampunk hazard suit for the adventurous avatar, which will allow him to move to the most dangerous envivroments
without any harm.:)

Besides it will amuse its owner with some nice features like some weird sounds coming from the engine, a walk that
indicates that the constructor may have been doing something wrong here and there and my favourite:
a gramophone-sound system to amuse yourself and bystanders.

I also offer a free product demo, so everyone could try this peak point in steel-fashion before
buying it.

Segmented life

29 02 2008

Now these two weeks saw some ups and downs:
at first, my shares of the Mainstaululu-advertising-Network droppend with the uncertainty
of LL-Lab’s new policy regarding spam.
Secon: After my recovery from my personal >>nose-plague<<, my RL-boss was so kind to shove a heap of workload on my desk, which was able to keep me from my anydaywork and finally I had to teach some people in law-classes.

So, when old Friday came around, I was all fed up, while not being able to enter SL for more than two hours all week.

Now that my week had been segmented already, I started to dig up an old idea, which roamed
around my mind for quite some time: shop segments which could be copied and combined to form
a mall or a shopping-street.

While just having finished >>The Majestic<<, I decided to keep that very style for the new
designs as well.
Now I was all set to do, what I have been doing all week: neglecting my anyday-work to have some time of pure fun and contemplation while building.

When finished, I had attained two results.
First: I need more prims! I am eager to set these on a life-display as well and -oh dear-
I am short on prims, so I went over to a new tierlevel and started to buy whatever land was left on Dhaulagiri to realize my idea.

Second result was that I was much more relaxed after the weekend. It’s good to create some content now and then instead of doing admin-work for the shop.

Another idea, I had with buying more land was to refinance a bit of the whole thing by showing my new designs ‘in action’, which means, I rent them out to tennants for not too much money to cover some of the land-tierfee. Due to the 19% VAT I pay this wont work out
on the perspective of huge earnings, but it will help nevertheless.
But then again: where to get more prims for doing so?

Decisions, Decisions, Decisions …*sigh* back to admin work.:)
