Two home items, one new tree!

There are a number of new releases this week!

Two home items, one new tree!

This is a bookcase made from sculpties, so you’ll need to rez items on the ground then place them on the shelves. Low prim, Asian design, realistic lighting and shadow base. Great for your home! Available mod/copy only.

Two home items, one new tree!

This is both a decorative and functional tea set. Scripted and unscripted versions of the teacups are available (for wearing) and it’s possible to make the teapot steam when clicked. A pouring gesture is also included so you can pour tea while holding the teapot in your hand. Available mod/copy only.

Two home items, one new tree!

Folks who have been following Organica for a while may recall a couple of Acer tenuifoliums which were made many many moons ago and which were relegated to the discount wall. Well, finally I’ve gotten my act together and put together a new version of that tree; it’ll be known by its more colloquial name, the Full Moon Maple. This new tree comes with sculpted foliage and more efficient trunk. The foliage has also been completely redone to take advantage of the sculpt type most of my trees are made with now. This tree comes with: green, ‘turning’ and red versions (unscripted), foliage changing (scripted), and particle emitting (for leaf drop) on the ‘turning’ and ‘red’ versions. Available mod/trans or mod/copy.

As always, all products are available for purchase at the Organica main store.

Playing catchup on releases since December

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:

swampcypress-vendor

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.

japanesemaple1-vendor

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!
