Every year when it gets to be around mid February I begin to think about maple syrup. Growing up in the middle of no where I used to see the trees tapped and the sap gathered so it could be made into syrup. So every year it comes around to be about now I start to think…. that’s something that I could put together, it’d be kinda decent. And basically every year something comes up and I don’t get it done.
Finally I got something put together. It’s not a “full” set for this kind of thing, no… if I was going to do the full set I would have done more to it. A more well rounded set with fires and pots while you boil the sap, this is kind of like a beginning thing maybe. Or I suppose you could consider it the first part.
Tappin the Maple Trees set includes quite a bit all by itself. There are 6 trees. Three ‘tapped’ with a spile and a hook holding a rustic looking bucket to collect the sap and then three that are just by themselves. The reason there are three is because people don’t tend to really like leafless trees. While maple trees are in essence tapped while still cold enough to not have leaves there are different versions for peoples choosing. A leafless version, a primmy leafy version that is 6 LI, and then a lower prim version that is only 1 or 2 LI… I can’t remember which. But really even the “primmy” version isn’t all that primmy in comparison to what trees can be. The leaves are ‘young’, meaning they’re lightish in color.
Along with the trees there are a couple buckets. One with a handle, one without and then two sitting logs. One that is meant to be right facing, and one that is meant to be left facing. They have the same sits and in essence are the same thing I just liked having two. 8 embedded animations in each log for male and female to relax or recline.
So that’s the set. Mostly decorative, but not too bad. Fairly low LI all around, link pieces to save prims since some are .5 LI
100% Mesh and done by me.
Here’s the kicker. This set which will be in the store and will have a higher price tag is for sale today only for 25L as an introductory hey how ya doin type price at the main location.
Take care and have a great Tuesday!
