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: Ventriloq – Personal Greeter HUD

18 05 2008

As a shopkeeper in Second Life ™, you normally have to repeat certain welcomings or product-related phrases to point out this or that over and over. That is, if you happen to be a shopkeeper who seeks ‘face-toface’-contact with customers or have employees for giving personal service.

Examples:
“Greetings. Welcome at SLCME headquarters. How may I help you?”
“Please remark that, if our products get utterly destroyed because of a malfunctioning prim, we will of course redeliver a fresh copy of the respective prim.”

Quite some typing for business-conversation, you have to do multiple times, isn’t it?

Due to this, a gadget, worn as a HUD that makes your avatar actually say whatever phrases you preset with a simple click, would defenitely save you some typing time.

Find it at The Hammerwielder Store Shop, on Second Life(tm) Exchange or on my onrez-site and take a look on a way to make serving customers a tad easier.





Hear Ye! Hear Ye! New Things!

26 04 2008

I neglected my blog for two week now out of a very understandable reason: I wanted to find out, if it is me or SL. I am talking about the the old feeling to jogg in jam all the time. Well it was SL mainly. I found out by buying a new laptop.

This beauty now has two gigs of RAM and a recognizable gfx card. The good point is, I can now run windlight. Another one is, that I was able to heighten my view distance to maximum … which I reduced again immediately to keep at least a little bit of the impression to have my land in a decent neighbourhood.

Now, after I took some time to transfer all data to the new machine, I was finally back in business, only to find out that SL was still darn slow. So much for that hope.

Anyhow, I finally packed managed to box up Jen Wise’s fabulous Tudor House Design and set it for sale on the Storeshop and on my vendor network.

Its a really beautiful piece of work and I agreed to sell it on a comission base for I am still a bit dense when it comes to homedesigns. Check it out either at the shop or at the lifedisplay on Dhaulagiri. Of course you may also check it out on SLX or on Onrez.

Also -leaving all admin work behind- I did some contemplative afternoon-hour, starting to set up another long time-idea: A Newsstand, where you will find all the newspapers, blogs and SL publications. I admit, the idea isnt especially new but I wanted a decent corner for this and a decent building to go as a newsstand, which also can be used as a shop. Well, after some fiddling and some design critics from my sweetheart, I finished the little building, placed the first vendors and IMed people for to send me more. So if you run a newspaper or a magazine or a Blog in SL, make yourself heard and drop me some info or your vendor to place it there.

Now… back to work.

p.s.: did I mention that i soon will have to cut down RL in favour of this?:)
