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!
Two brand new items not in store inventory for 25L Tuesday this week. Next week I’m on the list too and we’re supposed to do a gift I think so it’s all good. You know it’s funny, for quite awhile I been thinking yea I should get on the list once in awhile at least. It’s an interesting thing to do and people like to get a little deal once in awhile. I don’t ALL the time but yanno, to keep it interesting.
Anyhow… I kept wondering why I’d miss the sign up times. They alternate time zones so people have a fair chance. Open up the reservations say noon one week and then the next it’s at 10pm or something. My time that is, in SL it’s like 7pm or something. And I digress yet again, but I was wondering why I kept missing them and guess what?
Well… I had group notices off. heh.
So for this week I have a couple items up.
The first, the meat wagon was actually a customer request. They had some of the other pull carts and was wondering if I had something along those lines. I didn’t and while trying to figure out something for this week I figured why not. So there you have it, at a discount through today. Tomorrow it’ll be placed at normal pricing.
Second item is a set of bondage posts. Short posts with a handful of animations in it, particle chains and gives manacles. It matches the other wooden post that I tossed out there a few months ago. I like it when things match or go together.
So there you have it, 25L for this week. Come take advantage before midnight tonight SL time.
Ahh, I was bored… waiting for things in real life to settle a bit and putzing around in my workshop. Decided I could be a little productive while messing around right? Sooo… I made up a chore for all you hard working folks out there.
Churning butter! Exciting huh? lol I have some new kitchen items coming out (and some have been at the Gorfest this week) so it seemed to be a good idea to get this out there too. Made almost entirely of sculptured prims it is nicely animated. Churning, sweating and working hard you’ll stand every once in awhile stretching trying to get that kink out of your back before bending back to the task.
Smooth lines, rustic type appeal it weighs in at 8 whole prims. Not too shabby eh? Click the churn to get a plunger, jump on and away you go… Simple! The animation is embedded, no ugly hover text or poseball to clutter your scene just like most of my chores. The anim is adjustable through menus for different avatar sizes.
The beginning of a new month so that means someone was lucky enough to win the 1000L and 1000L store credit for the month of May. This past months winner is blackforestWitch Dryke!! Congratulations and I hope you enjoy your things! She was REALLY on top of things, already sent in her wish list. hehehe If you’d like a chance to win all you have to do is come by the store, click on the board for the contest, place Roawenwood in your picks and you’re all set! On the last day of the month I will draw at random a winner and send out another notice.
I’ve talked about a few things recently and got things rolling with some updates. Brand new chore was put out. This one is a little more detailed, not just a bucket or a washbasin but a gathering vulo eggs chore with actual vulo sitting around it. Had a bird made specially just for it so I could be as book accurate as possible too! The chore consists of an embedded animation where the worker scoops the eggs outta the nest and places them in a handy lil basket. I’m going to be working on additions to this as well. Something a lil less prim heavy for those who are needing to keep an eye on that andddddd a few accessories like a coop, and more birds to toss about your land to make it look better.
I also added a brand new dance pit. This one I think is finally more along the lines of what I wanted my dance pits to be like. It is rather large with seating for 8 people. Soft sculptured bean bag type chairs are used, each one with 9 poses in them so you can kick back… recline, relax or find another sit to amuse yourself with. Room between each seat so a girl can kneel down to serve as well. Along with that each seat has texture change so you can have a bit of a different flair if you wish. Done in rich woods and embellished along the edges the pits texture change options have security features so you can set the permissions level to owner only, group only, or free for all. The sands themselves have an animation menu installed in it. This creates something a little different for your dancers. You can add dances (use the ones included), reset the script and when they click the sands the dancer can choose from those available without using a poseball! This creates more role play opportunity! You can get closer, further, or entice those who are watching, it also allows for more than one dancer at a time! The one drawback… well you can’t sync the dances, but then again realistically most girls don’t dance perfectly in sync anyhow.
The Through the Looking Glass Hunt started… and I have an offering hidden down within the landing point for that too.
So that’s about it for now. I’ll pester ya’ll again soon.
It’s the weekend!! And with that lovely piece of news there’s been a lot going on at the store! The Gorean Grid Wide Hunt kicks off today and my lil heart with a dagger through it isn’t that hard to find. It’s near the landing point just take a peek up and you should see it without too many problems. It has a few things in there, I couldn’t decide what to place… along with the fact that I was -trying- to have a little bit of everything so most can find a use for it.
A sexy little camisk is one of the included freebies in there which won’t be put out for sale till after the hunt is over with… can get a free copy now if you like and feel like dropping by.
The Lucky Tribe event through the Lucky Chair Company is supposed to be kicking off today around noon SL. They’re being secretive about it but it sounds like it could be a lot of fun. You play games and go round the grid to participating stores to earn kudos points. As you earn points you can redeem them for prizes at stores that are in the event. Both of the lucky chairs placed out at my store can earn kudos points. A twist on the grid wide hunt idea with some added fun and challenges! Lucky Tribe teaser post.
I added a new little chore… a harvest bag. Nothing too awful major really but a little accessory that you can use for role play or whatever.
Dance Pit Upgrade Offer: When I created the Desert Opulence Dance Pit I included a texture change option. The script that was used for it worked alright but on a reset could end up wiping the thing clean so you couldn’t do the texture change anymore. This really isn’t a good thing… you are paying for that functionality and it shouldn’t get broken that easily. I have since had the script redone and now it won’t. Safe from resets and safe from lil LL or SL snafus unless they change something.
In this vein I am offering a FREE upgrade to the latest version of the dance pit. Anyone that has this dance pit is welcome to send it in a folder along with a notecard with the name of the person to send the upgraded dance pit to and I’ll replace it free of charge. Rename the folder to something like Dance Pit Upgrade Request.
Have a great weekend!
