Grass Tops, Hyacinth and Morning Glory now available!

Grass Tops

This newest offering from Organica has been a long time in development. Back a few years ago, I released a couple of Erosion sets, which serve to create transitions between higher and lower terrain, offering opportunities to create a terraced effect between land & land as well as land & water. At the time, the greatest aim was to create such items such that LI could be kept low. With those goals in mind, the erosion sets have gone on to do very well.

With that said, I’ve since received requests for similar items with grassy fringe, which would create a better blend between the top texture and the rock texture, so I’ve taken some time to create and test a new set of grassy top items, as follows:

GrassTop-vender

These pieces range from 1-9 LI at packaged size – This is a bit higher in some cases than the original erosion sets, however with the increased degree of geometry, it is unavoidable. (If LL offered the opportunity for content creators to apply an alpha mask to a material separate from a diffuse texture, we would be able to make further LI savings, however that appears to be outside the scope of potential tool development at this time). These items feature baked soil/rock texture and the usual leafy texture that is offered with the original erosion pieces by default. All pieces have a tapered edge for easier blending and placement. As with the erosion sets, you can also apply your own terrain texture if you wish. Six shapes are included to give you the most flexibility while landscaping. Check them out in-world here or on Marketplace here!

Additionally, two new types of flower are now available!

Hyacinths

Hyacinth-Fatpack-Vendor-768

Each package offers both potted (3 plants per pot) and unpotted (individual plant) items and there are ten different colours to collect, mix and match, both separately as well as in a fatpack! 1 and 3 LI each, Mod, copy, no transfer, available both in-store here and on Marketplace here!

Morning Glory

MorningGlory-Vendor-LaVieEnRose MorningGlory-Vendor-Venice-768
MorningGlory-Vendor-MountFuji-768 MorningGlory-Vendor-GrandPaOtt-768

Featuring signature trumpet-like flowers, these vines grow around an intricate wrought-iron trellis and grow from a beautiful, ornate planter! Available in four varieties, materials optimized. 7 LI each, mod, copy, no transfer, available both in-store here and on the Marketplace here!

Winter Fair package now available as part of The Neighborhood event!

WinterFairPack-vendorHi Folks, It’s been a while since I updated, as I’ve been super busy working on a few client projects over the past couple of months. I took last month off for The Neighborhood, but good news! Available today (although really more like the full weekend, since this blog post is a little late and I want to give everyone a fair shake at picking this item up) is the above winter fair pack, which is a great kit for anyone seeking to add to their outdoor winter display! The pack comes with three booths (one with a counter, one with seating (up to three people) and one empty (ready for displaying your creations)), a wooden bench, ice rink and snow shovel. Everything is mod/copy, although there are some copy-only scripts in the furniture and there is a copy/trans only coffee mug for one of the poses.

This pack is now available at the main store for only $200L for this weekend only, after which the price will return to normal. Please drop by and pick it up if you can!

New Halloween & terrain items released!

These highly detailed pumpkins are sure to be a welcome addition to any festive halloween display! Each is 1 LI at packaged size and is mod, copy, no copy. Available in-store or on the Marketplace!

Some of you have been asking about some of the newer assets that have been used in Organica sim lately; namely the dirt roads as well as the waterside erosion pieces.

These two packs include four shapes to mix & match and place up against the edge of your land, typically between water and land but also usable as wall pieces if you wish. Each piece is 1 LI at packaged size and all are mod, copy, no transfer. Replace upper texture with your preferred terrain texture if necessary. Available in-store or on the Marketplace (rock) (sand)!

 

This dirt road package includes 13 tile shapes in total to best accommodate your terrain shape. Pieces range from 1-7 LI at packaged size and all are mod, copy, no transfer. Available in-store or on the Marketplace!

New Coleus plants + Rock walls now available

Brighten up your garden with these brilliant coleus plants!  Each one is 3LI with or without the pot, and sports vibrant hand-drawn foliage with realistic lighting and detailing. Ten varieties are available either individually or as a fatpack. Mod/copy/no transfer. Requires mesh capable viewer. ( Buy in Store ) ( Buy on Marketplace )

 

These rock walls have been requested somewhat regularly since i first started using them at Home Expo. While I wasn’t ready to offer them then, I’ve finished up the things I wanted to do with them and now make them available for you.

To use: Simply rez and move up against areas where you’d like a rock wall. Do note: these items do not have backsides in order to cut down on LI and reduce viewer resource use. To give these items a backside, consider duplicating and facing the other way, using other prims or backing these items up against terrain.

Available mod/copy/no transfer. Requires mesh capable viewer. ( Buy in store ) ( Buy on Marketplace )
