New this week are a couple of great additions to your garden!
Flowers aren’t always necessary to introduce colour to your garden – Begonias come in a wide range of looks and here are a handful of them to start with. Included are both the individual plants as well as a version of them potted in a wooden planter. Each has a unique set of materials, featuring detailed bump maps and hand-painted diffuse textures, so please do be sure to enjoy these with Advanced Lighting Model turned on in your viewer.
Available as singles or in a fatpack, mod, copy, no transfer, both on Marketplace as well as in-store.
Additionally, here’s a new set of hedge pieces made for carefully groomed gardens! Mingi Mingi are dense bushes from New Zealand that feature small leaves and small berries. Pieces range from 1-3 LI ea, materials optimized, and are mod, copy, no transfer. Available both on Marketplace as well as in-store.
I’ll start off with some housekeeping – It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me, moving the shop, setting up a whole new vendor system, making new content for the build as well as upcoming events…
So it’s it’s with some satisfaction that I can say Organica region is once again open. I’ve opted to stick with open and organized for the moment, some areas are still undergoing refinement, and a new store directory is in the works, but all vendors are now functioning.
I was able to port over all existing store credit from E2V to Caspervend, so you should be able to spend your remaining store credit at your leisure. There HAVE been some significant changes as the result of the vendor service swap, however:
– Gift cards are now available in L$250, L$500, L$1000 and L$2000 denominations. For other denominations, please contact me directly.
– Redeliveries are now available by clicking on any vendor and clicking on ‘Redelivery’. Please note: ALL gacha items still reside on the original gacha vendor service, which is seperate from Caspervend offerings. Fresh, updated, mod/copy gacha items are still available by rezzing your item in the exchanger circle.
– Store credit can be increased through the use of gift cards. It will no longer accrue by the purchase.
– A permanent 5% discount WILL be applied to your account (and credited back at time of purchase) after a minimum of L$5000 in purchases has been accrued. Additional discount tiers may or may not exist 😉 ( Customer Rewards Program )
– Because they do not share the same vendor service, all gacha items are exempt from the customer rewards program.
Organica is now set up at Home & Garden Expo (a day early even… woot!) with a few new releases!
The Altadore Bedroom set includes bed, nightstand, drapes, lamp, rug and chest of drawers. The bed includes single and couple animations, the nightstand and chest have drawers which open/close, the lamp turns on/off on click. Pick up the classy and conservative Charcoal edition or the sassy and creative RFL edition! 1-8 LI, Mod, copy, no transfer, with some copy-only scripts.
These new raised grow boxes have been serving me well in terms of display and they would work well in anyone’s back yard, whether you intend to use them for vegetables or any other sort of plant material. 1 LI ea, mod, copy, no transfer.
Calatheas are stunning tropical plants with a great degree of variety. I’ve chosen a small sampling for this first pack – please let me know if there are particular calatheas you’d also like to see. I tried to keep this initial pack small just to start, but may be open to offering more.
Each of these mesh plants are 1 LI each and they are mod, copy, no transfer.
These two RFL exclusives are also available – ONLY for Relay for Life events, so do be sure to pick them up while you can!
These new items are available at Home Expo for the duration of the event, then most will make their way back to the main store and Marketplace!
Organica may be found at Home Expo 3 region this year. Home & Garden Expo runs May 19 from 8AM SLT thru June 2 at 12AM, SLT. Do drop by and say hi!
Today, I’m glad to announce that the Kitten avatars are undergoing a long-awaited update, which includes additional Bento functionality plus a brand new animation override. This updated avatar is now available in shop, along with one completely new line – the Bicolour coat pattern!
If you already have one (or more) of either the Tabby or Cheshire avatars and purchased it off the Marketplace, you can expect an automatic delivery for each within the next twenty-four hours. A limited number of recent in-store purchases will also receive this automatic update. If you do not receive your update by Jan 17 2018 (EDT), please see below before contacting me by IM:
If you purchased in-store prior to Christmas and do not recieve an update automatically, please come to the main shop and rez your update token (found in your original Kitten package). There may be a delay but you should still get your update that way. If it times out, please contact me (Aki Shichiroji) directly by IM.
This new bicolour pattern is very much intended to reference the ‘tuxedo’ look that many bi-colour cats have. Five colours are available in this line and these new kittens will include Bento functionality, just like the updated originals!
– Facial and tail Bento support
– New Animation Overrider HUD featuring advanced facial animations specifically for this avatar
– Update system now also uses the blue circle exchanger system (Read the included notecard for full details).
Known issue: RFL Purple Cheshire has not been addressed in this update but will be within the week. Please stay tuned for further info.
Relevant inquiries: Will the applier system used for several other recent releases also be used for the kitten avatar?
– While the possibility is not closed to this, the logistics are non-trivial. The Applier system will not be applied to the kitten avatars at this time.
Will dev-kits and/or clothing be made available for these avatars?
– Both are being taken in to consideration at this time and both are very likely. Again, the logistics of packaging and managing a growing number of coats for this avatar are something that I need to become accustomed to before I will have time to address either. Please IM me to let me know of your interest!
Will animesh support be provided with this avatar?
– It’s a bit early to comment, but animesh for this avatar is quite likely. In all likelihood, Animesh support will involve a customized kit that can be dropped in, but given that these details are rather abstract, the final execution may be somewhat different. There are also some non-mesh and non-rigged components which would need to be converted for use with Animesh should a conversion occur, so I would need to account for the additional time cost for this work.

Much like the Cat Ears & Tails, these Bento attachments come with the short ear & long tail AO, which is intended for layering over existing human AO animations. They come with lifetime updates and are optimized for use with viewers which use the Advanced Lighting Model. They are mod, copy, no transfer , with some no-mod scripts.
This Candy Fair edition of webbed wings is much like the original release, in that it includes both small and large mesh, as well as AO, for various body shapes. They come with lifetime updates and are optimized for use with viewers which use the Advanced Lighting Model. These, too, are mod, copy, no transfer, with some no-mod scripts.
You can pick up the Cat Ears & Tail, Mouse Ears & Tail & Candy Fair Edition Webbed Wings at Candy Fair here until December 1! (Some previous years’ Candy Fair gacha releases are also available again at the Gacha Gardens there too!)
Organica has a spot at this year’s Home and Garden Expo!
This new 8 piece writing desk set includes corkboard, books, pencils, fountain pens, blotter, notebook and ink, along with a classic wood writing desk that’s great for any home!
Pieces range from 1-2 LI each and the set is mod, copy, no transfer.
Among many other RFL donation items, these two new hens and chick items are great for both indoor and outdoor use! 3-4LI each, they are mod, copy, no transfer and 100% of proceeds from the following items will go to the Relay for Life!
Organica will be participating in this year’s Candy Faire and brings a few new exclusives – as well as a new treat-themed racing car! Read on for more details…
These parasols are non-rigged, materials-optimized and can either be worn as attachments (a Bento-ready animation is included) or rezzed on the ground for display. Each is 2LI and available individually or as part of the fatpack. 8 colours are offered in the fatpack and 2 mystery colours are offered as Trick or Treat gifts at the Faire. Mod, copy, no transfer.
These circular tables are 2 LI each and great for a shop or at home! Two packs are available (Classic and Halloween edition) and each pack includes four colour options. Mod, copy, no transfer, materials optimized.
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!
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.
First off, the store has moved. It can now be reached here. Some older field plant items (such as the daffodils and the tiger lillies) have been converted to mesh (a housekeeping item that had until now been left unaddressed) and other products are still being moved/reorganized/sorted for retirement. Your feedback on the new layout would be much appreciated; please feel free to IM me (Aki Shichiroji) directly.
Give your backyard character with this huge old elm! This huge and hearty tree will tower above you at almost 20m and comes with three foliage textures! At 27LI, this tree provides a wonderful eye-catching centerpiece to you yard! Mod/transfer and mod/copy, both available in-store here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Organica/138/146/2501
New this week is a four piece fireplace set called The Falls! It includes a poker set, chestnuts with a roasting pan, fireplace, as well as original artwork called ‘The Falls’, by me (Aki Shichiroji / Florence Chan). Pick it up for only L$200 via The Neighbourhood promotion this weekend!
Winter holiday items are also back!

Organica returns to the Home and Garden Expo this year with a variety of new products!
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.
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.
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.
This wrought iron chandelier is low LI and compliments many environments quite well. This item is unscripted, and offered mod/copy/no-transfer.
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)
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.
