Lastly, drop by the Gacha Graveyard ( http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Destiny%20Dreams/122/116/25 ) for a chance to play Organica’s gacha machine, which features these cupcake racers! Made in collaboration with NeoBokrug Elytis of Desolate Studios, each racer comes with an optional bobble-head and use of the WoO racing system (full info here: http://www.akimeta.com/organica/?page_id=2043 ) Each car is 11LI and materials optimized. They are Transfer-only with option to exchange and will rez with one permanent trait, which effects driving in a unique way. Play the gacha machine or trade with friends to get a vehicle with the stats you want – there are six traits to collect!

Traits Acceleration Agility Speed
Scurry 4 3 2
Dart 4 2 3
Scamper 3 4 2
Hotfoot 2 4 3
Marathon 3 2 4
Hasty 2 3 4

 

Please note: Due to the nature of transfer-only items as well as the volatile nature of vehicles & region crossings, we highly recommend locking in your vehicle for a copy-only version once you are happy with what you’ve got. Your transfer-only vehicle may be exchanged for a copy-only vehicle at the main store. There is a special, separate exchanger for vehicles. Please check the note-card included with your purchase for the location, up to date as of Ocotober 16, 2016.

Organica can be found at Candy Faire at booth 29 – located here at: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Destiny%20Dreams/31/108/47 from October 17 thru 31st!

Organica at Home & Garden Expo 2013

Organica returns to the Home and Garden Expo this year with a variety of new products!

StStony-vendor
First up, this new structure is the product of a lot of research and construction to capture the essence of an abandonment located in Detroit, called St. Agnes (later, Martyrs of Uganda Parish), but better known as St. Stony by many urban explorers.

Snapshot_018-sml

Built during the early 1900s, the structure was abandoned by 2006 and has fallen victim to a great many acts of vandalism; metal parts have been salvaged for scrap, ornate tiles removed and smashed, pews torn away and organ smashed to bits. By the time I got a chance to visit in late 2010, graffiti had crept ideas way to the interior, and things have only gotten worse since then. While the building was acquired in 2012 once again, it remains to be seen whether the building will be restored or simply torn down, like so much of Detroit has been in recent years.

In any case, the key goal for me with this project was to preserve a sense of the building as I remember it, rather than to produce a straight copy, and hopefully that comes across here.
Snapshot_017-sml

The building is 36m by 60m, with a 20m ceiling and 35m spire. It is packed in a rezzer for easy unpacking and placement, and features high quality textures, efficient modeling, scripted doors, optional window light rays. It’s mod/copy/no- transfer, with some copy- only scripts.

Chandelier-vendor

This wrought iron chandelier is low LI and compliments many environments quite well.  This item is unscripted, and offered mod/copy/no-transfer.

AmazonLily-fatpack-vendor

These new Amazon lilies are ideal for rivers or ponds. 1 li at packaged size, unscripted. Mod/copy/no transfer.

Additionally, drop by to pick up some new RFL-exclusive items! Both are mod/copy/no transfer and being mesh, require a mesh capable viewer. They are RFL exclusives, so remember to pick them up while the fundraiser is on! (Other RFL exclusives from previous years will also be available in the main store as well as on-site at Home Expo)

AmazonLily-RFLpurple-vendor

TulipFlowers-RFL-vendor

Drop by Organica’s spot at Home & Garden Expo to view these items for the duration of the show (May 24, 12PM to June 2), after which everything will be moved to the main store.

MMM Details & some product updates

March Mesh Madness 2012 begins tomorrow!

I’ve finally had a chance to finish up my booth and look forward to exhibiting my work!

Some new items have been released, along with a MMM12 exclusive, a freebie and some discounts too!

Details are as follows:

These trendy star-shaped lamps come in eight colours, all in one set. Click to toggle through on, off or natural daylight. 1 LI each as packaged, mod/copy/no transfer. ( Buy at MMM12 )

 Exclusive to March Mesh Madness, these white-veined blue crocus flowers are offered as part of a potted setting but also include all three crocus flower shapes inside. This colour will only ever be offered at MMM12, so if you like it, this will be your only chance to pick it up. 1 LI per flower, total setting comes to 9 LI. mod/copy/no transfer. Available only at MMM12!

Don’t forget to snag this freebie from the display as well 🙂

Some items have been marked 33% off, again at MMM12 only.

With the exception of the MMM12 Crocus, all items released above will be available in-store at Organica or on Marketplace about a week from now. In the mean time, help make the March Mesh Madness event a success by dropping by, bringing your friends, or just in general passing the word around about the show.

Wilds of Organica Updates:

Updates have been sent for both the Burrowing Owl and Snowy Owl avatars, fixing the top level sit button, preventing the av from getting pushed underground when the ‘birdsit’ button is pressed. The eyelid texture for the snowy owls has also been fixed and should appear black, not brown. If you did not recieve the update, please let me know and I’ll look in to redelivery.

Two new trees, some land updates.

The Releases:

I’ve had some requests for more compact and upright trees that are more suitable to both urban and rural areas. Coupled with the desire to put out some more autumnal offerings, the results are as follows!

Both trees are low prim at 3 prims each. They come with three foliage textures, both scripted and unscripted, mod copy and mod transfer.

As always, they can be found at Organica sim.

Mod/Copy editions can also be found on the Marketplace as follows:

Birch 3: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Organica-Birch-3/2736086

Oak 8: https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Organica-Oak-8/2736102

The Land News:
Six new parcels of land have been made available this month in Sylvan sim. If you have always wanted a spot in this quiet sim, now’s your chance. There are three parcels left, in the north-east corner of the sim and all parcels in Sylvan now have a 1.75x prim bonus, which means you can have 75% more prims on your parcel than you would normally.

The details are as follows:

Parcel size Prims Weekly price SLURL
Parcel 7 – 2432sqm 973 L$1752 SLURL
Parcel 8 – 1696sqm 679 L$1223 SLURL

Home and Garden Expo 2011

Organica will again have a display at this year’s Home and Garden Expo!

As usual, items that were originally RFL fundraisers are being offered again as fundraisers, so things like the Bougainvillea Gate & Tsukubai will raise funds for the American Cancer Society for the duration of Relay for Life. Additionally, RFL exclusive items will make an appearance/reappearance for the fundraiser; the RFL Pink tulips are back and two new RFL exclusives will debut at the Expo, then make their way to the main store when the Expo closes on May 23.

Like the other lilies released earlier this past month, these RFL exclusive purple tiger lilies are low prim, come in 4 shapes to fit various terrain, and are mod/copy/no transfer.

New roses are now available! Ranging from white through red to black, these bushes are low prim and look great! Offered separately or as a fatpack, mod, copy no transfer.

There’s also a RFL exclusive purple rosebush, and it’s also mod/copy/no transfer.

New Oak Tree (with optional tire swing) released!

Many, many moons ago (almost two years!), my friend Todd Action asked for a big tree with a tire swing on it. I didn’t think much about it then, but over time I came around to the idea and how to execute it. I’ve also had a chance to play around with JJacek Antonelli’s Blender .bvh exporter, so I was ultimately able to put together something to my liking that meets the standards I try to keep today.

The result is a 11 prim Oak Tree (3 prims make up the optional tire swing) that is offered with both scripted and unscripted versions (for foliage change) as well as a rez-faux version which uses a scripted tree and swing. Sit on the tire swing to swing – three animations are included and can be switched through clicking the tire while seated. Due to the nature of the scripts and packages included with this product, it is being offered mod/copy only (scripts inside are copy only).

The tree’s available in the store as usual or on site here.
