I’ve been a bad blogger and not kept this update blog as up to date as i’d prefer.
December and January were both busy months. On top of the flower and spruce tree releases, there was the Openspace/Homestead debacle, which really put me in the situation where I was really getting tired of being asked to pay more for a smaller resource. That’s what the Homestead issue was about, after all. Punishing everyone for the sins of a few, driving up costs and restricting usable assets. The whole problem was really poorly handled and were it not for a friend who himself was removing his presence from SL, I would not have gone ahead with the huge jump and invested in his last remaining full region.
A Winter party was held mid December, and about a week to week and a half afterward, Sylvan was torn down in prep for the move to the new sim, which was renamed to Sylvan and transferred to my possession at the beginning of January.
Since then, it’s been a slow rebuild. I decided to redesign Sylvan entirely – Organica now rests about 900m in the air, I’ve added a build for Kitheres, which is home to my skin and avatar products, and everything at ground level is non-commercial. There will be a small live music venue that might see use if i have the time. There’s also a quiet sandbox in the southwest quadrant for folk to make use of if they wish. The rest of the sim has been seeing lots of terraforming and landscaping, and is basically my testing ground for new product.
With that said, here are the releases that have been put out since my last update:
Bald Cypress trees are now available in three sizes – two megaprim sizes and one normal. Each tree is 3 prims and uses ratioed/oblong sculpts. To view, you will need Second Life viewer 1.21 or better.
Japanese Maples are also now available, in two deep shades, perfect for your garden. Each tree is 3 prims and uses ratioed/oblong sculpts. To view, you will need Second Life viewer 1.21 or better.
Please do pop over and have a look!
