Updates Updates Updates

I recently met Cal (yes I know that this is  normally what people call me), a fabulous guy who seems to have survived from the old days of SL, whobought of my vintage line wholesale package and who turned out to be a.: a nice person and b.:an excellent advocatus diavoli with a sharp eye.

He was so nice to point out several bugs in my designs to me which slipped me as some things do when you work intensely on them and turn into the eyes-wide-shut-mode. So I spent most of saturday with snooping after his findings and correcting them.

 

During this process, I updated the following things:

– The Majestic

And no, I do not have a fancy update-server as of yet, I have to admit. I fancy I slowly have to face the fact that this thing grows bigger and bigger and get me one:)

Kind regards,

Product: Vintage Mall ‘ The Majestic’

21 02 2008

One of the purposes of this blog is to announce and -of course- promote products, I created and offer at my shop. Well, I guess now is a good time to start to do so.

I have already created quite a bunch of vintage shops, homes, a castle and miscellaneous gadgets, but I intend to only spotlight one or two of them and concentrate on upcoming products.

Comments on any product will be highly appreciated. For one reason, this helps me to do better products in the future and for another: I like to hear if somebody tells me that what i do is good:)

Now as for the ‘Majestic’ – Mall design, I maybe should start with the technical data:

The Majestic

 I built this structure because I just bought the location on Dhaulagiri and needed something new to offer my things in.

The Majestic 2The old warehouse, I used was fine and you will find it among my products in the shop, but it was simply not fitting my L-shaped land without taking some of the atmoshpere.The Majestic 4

So I came up with some new idea, I had bouncing round my head for quite some time.

This idea and the fact that i always wanted to experiment about the possibilities of huge prims, enabled me to constrruct this one out of only 130 prims which leaves you only with the problem of footprint(to any troll-feeders: yes i know about the huge prim-debate that has been going on for several years now and due to the jump in server technology, I am of the opinion that LL would do good to invent larger prims that can be modified properly).

 I wanted something bright and shiny but also with what I call ‘the-golden-age-look’. So I took some nice terracotta-wallpaper-texture, made it semi-reflective and attained the look it has now and which still blows me away when I watch it during sundown or dawn-phase without even using windlight.

The Majestic 3

I intend to do some more in that look, just to see where it leads me. But that will be a job for the time, when I boxed up all the stuff i have finished in my pocket.

 The Majestic 5A structure this big always has some temple-like character, so the rezbox, I ship it in holds the open-to all-sides design and an additional rezbox with separator-elements, shopsign-dummies and prims that turn the arches into alcovens by closing the walls on three of the four sides of the building.

This way you can separate the whole building into 24 smaller shops to rent out with even some space left in the middle.  You only need to place that rezbox in the yellow marker in the middle of the gound floor and rez the additional config with the usual-3-click-technique, you are used from rezboxes all out SL. 

Saying that, reminds me that I had loads of requests for the effects of the HAVOC 4 upgrade. I use the 1.11 version of the omega rez-locus scripts on all my buildings which on the one hand works fine with HAVOC and on the other hand enables you to rez multiple buildings from different boxes which do not interfere with each other, which was extremely annoying, when you worked on a sim-wide-level, placing structures to see how they look. 

But back to the building:

Like all my buildings, the ‘Majestic’ comes with mod- and copy-permissions so you can adapt it to your needs at any time.

In the present style, I think it will do good as a small mall, a huge shop, a temple or even as club. If you have the intentions to use it as a home, please remark, that there are no bathroom facilities included;)
