A dream in green

25 02 2009

I have to admit it. I like steel and rust more than shiny pipes and black and white modern design. Thus being so, I grabbed some buckets of rivets and my famous rusty steel and green glass textures.
 
What I wrenched out of my head after 4 days of building was my new headquarter in a 140m diameter cogwheel.

Now, after the rivets have cooled down, I decided to pack that up for sale in a while.

I was asked why I would be not selling it right away.

The answer is fairly easy:
To show off a bit. I behold it to be a somewhat unique structure in SL (yes I know well that there are probably a million unique structures around – but this is my personal-lookwhat-I’ve-done-now-structure 🙂 ).

But to offer some solace to the people who already asked me about it because of the looks and the somewhat nifty gate-construction, I took the vastly huge entrance hall and converted it into a separate structure, which I called “The Greenhouse”. This is going to be the first prefab of a new line of products, I call Steelworks

The Greenhouse offers a spacious hall, ideally suited as a workshop,
a store, a gallery or simply a stylish home.

The innovative entrance doors open automaticly and with a massive sound to let you in while the external lanterns allow you to set your entrance to the right light. The lanterns detect nighttime and switch on automaticly as soon as your sim turns dark.

New Product: Gorean Forest Mansion ‘Etaria’

17 03 2008

ps_etaria-001.jpg Spacious and open is the impression, we wanted to give with the design of the ‘Etaria’ mansion. Taken over from the concept of the far smaller ‘Eloria’Forest-Retreat, the mansion is designed to hold your home in a most gracious way, with vast space, with open windows and a lofty balcony to enyoy the view or land without crashes, if needed.The slightly rusty metal roof grants a view to the nights sky as well as on the suns blaze on sunny sims.

To enjoy the building without boundaries, you will also find a Hammerwielder Teleport-System already built in, which you will only need to reset once after rezzing before using it to jump between the spacious halls on both floors. It will also allow you to easily configure other landing points by a simpel 4-step-system (get new destination-object from the TP-base, rename it, drop it where you want a destination to be and reset it).

This building will fit evenly well in a gorean setting as it will in some elven or fantasy surrounding.

Busy-Bee-Weekend

17 03 2008

Now this weekend has seen some work. By the way, did I ever mention that my fiance always sneers at me as I claim to work, while I lay down on my couch, digging under a cosy blanket with my laptop in front of me on a small  table.
The fact alone that my attention is malfunctioning during that time -especially in catching up on her comments about what’s on TV- should tell her that I am highly  concentrated:)

However, during this weekend I managed to work a bit, even though SL was jammy again at  times.

At first, me and my friend Dispensus Waechter got back on the old idea to rent out the Storeshop’s Shop Displays on the Life-display-platform over the shop (God, what a repititory sentence).Hrmmph. Explanation:

In Dhaulagiri, I finally had the chance to get rid of the Holovendor – solution for all of  my products and to put up Life-Displays, people can teleport to and see the structure they  would buy in full size.

This display platform now has its traffic and it naturally costs some prims. Due to the fact, that my main focus is on buildings, I have no big ambition in creating furniture. This means, the the shops always appeared somewhat bare and lifeless, while I alwayswanted to give the customer an impression of what my creations could look like in their place.

So we hammered out the idea to rent those display shops to shopkeepers.

My friend Dispenus Waechter took over the task to oversee the rental business there and will  do so for the upcoming lifedisplay of the segment shops, soon to come.

He bought a hippo-rental server and did set up the rentboxes and rental boards. So far the  boxes seem to be brillo, even though we aren’t smart enough to use the web-based-server  option as of yet:)

We hope to offer some synergy-effect to shopkeepers here, due to its a free-tp zone. This  basicly means that they can offer their customers the chance to hop into their shops while  also the customers of the Hammerwielder Store Shop will pass by their shops to see the structures and  -of course- whats in them.

Now so much for that. I myself at the same time bought a hippo-update-server and  experimented with it. This means, that from now on, I will ship my products in Omega Rez  _locus Boxes which will look for an update every time they are rezzed to build a structure.

The customer will be given any never version on that very moment.

I hope this piece of service will improve quality for I am now able to correct little  glitches found immediately and not have to contact buyers one by one.

And finally what I did this weekend was to finish the forest mansion, I had underway for  quite some time now and boxed it up for sale (see product article above).

Now who says you can’t work on a couch?!
