1 Prim Plants!

I love, simply adore, decorating and landscaping in Second Life.  It is one reason why I like building things for other people to be able to do so.  Making plants is always a little bit of a pain.  Just how many prims are you willing to waste on a tree, or some grass, or a flower?  Especially when you usually need quite a few to make it look decent, and prims are so very precious.  Hard to come by and let’s face it.  Most people aren’t going to want to buy more land just for some prims.

When the 1 prim sculptured alternative came around instead of the 3+ prims needed for most flowers and things I was ecstatic!  What a great thing!  I loved it and ached to be able to do the same thing.  I fumbled around in programs trying to make a sculpt map for it but to no avail so I wasn’t able to.

Until now!!  Oohhh I finally got them!  I’m soooooooo excited!  I have in the past day or so converted most of my holiday trees (even the blinkie ones) so that they are now only 1 PRIM!  I also have added new rows of flowers in the landscaping area, as well as a brand new set of herb plants!  I figured they’d be great for gardeners, role players, or for someone who wants something a little different than their neighbor.  Available on Xstreet in no copy, and at my main store in both copiable and no copy versions.

I have lots more coming soon and I’ll be converting my other trees to the 1 prim sculptured too.

I’ve been playing with the weeping cherry tree textures for months.  I could never seem to get anything that I liked to come out of it.  They always looked sort of flat, or sparse.  I kept fiddling, and fiddling until today when I happened across one of my weeping willow trees.  Deciding to mess with it I think I finally found a way to do them that I like!  I mixed up the look so that it is lush, full, and verdant looking.  I love them.  They look so much better!  I couldn’t wait to put them out.

Four different color blossoms (peach, pink, light pink, and white), one large version and one small version totaling up to eight different trees.  You have to come by the store and see them, I put a picture of one but it really isn’t the same as seeing it for yourself.

I also placed out a small tea house/pavilion near the front called the Flower Wind.  Japanese styled with very rich texturing.  Not too big, and not too small it weighs in at only 19 prims, included with the packages is a simple set of stairs, and some sculptured prim docks/decking.  Soft light has been placed inside the tea house to give it a glow during the day or in the evening.
