the arcade! march ’13

Ok, I normally avoid Gachas, but the arcade is just frigging awesome.

I’m going to type out my play by play reactions to what I’m seeing on the shopping guide. I’m only commenting on things that I have a strong reaction to. I like/dislike other things too, but there are a zillion vendors, and id like to go to bed sometime tonight.

[edit] Btw, whether I like an item or a shop has nothing to do with the person CREATING the item itself I’ve loved shops and items made by people I hate, and frequently hated items from people that I love. Even if I hate items I can usually still admire the creativity and talent it takes to make them, unless I specifically slag off the laziness of said item. Then no :p[/edit]

I haven’t even SEEN what intrigue is making but i KNOW i want it.

mesh or skins? decisions, decisions

So my friend Ori is trying to talk me into making skins again (I lurves you Oir!). I was all gung-ho about it, but now that I’ve really looked into it, I soooo don’t want to. Making the SKIN is pure hell. The makeup is the only part I care about. I’m seriously tempted to make a totally alliterative skin, that look more like the vector images I make. It would be weird but could be cool.

What I really want to do is make mesh crap. I love the idea of mesh, but I have software issues. I only know how to model in 3ds, but my version is too old to work properly with the mesh plugins. I can export the models into blender, but I have no idea how to texture in blender. And everyone is so secrititive bout how they do things that i cant really ask anyone without them getting all RWAR or wanting to charge me umpteen billion dollars. makes me nuts, because i know how to make things look awesome in 3ds.

gah.

I want cake.

Thoughts on SL architecture

I’m diving into SL architecture again. I think that SL architecture really needs a shake-up. Badly. For a few reasons:

It’s a virtual world, which means nothing is real, so why are we holding so tightly to the realistic constructs of physics, weather and time? Why do all houses and stores have to have the basic all enclosing walls, doors and roofs. Are we warding off mud flinging Read the rest of this entry »

I has a sadface. QQ

So, I get back from holidays. I log in. What do I see in the region name at the top of my screen? Xeniversity Sandbox.  Bit what’s right after it?

‘- SANDBOX IS CLOSED’

!!!!!!!!

What do you mean, closed!  I pretty much LIVE there! I’m there 23/7! The only sandbox I’ve ever sen that’s not full of griefers laggy moons and the dregs of SL!  Nooooooooooooooooo!  I cry.

Well, thanks for the good times Xen, I really appreciated it while it lasted<3. Anyone know of another GOOD sandbox that's not all nooby and greiferey, and us actually still open?

In other news: I saw a bike infested with honey bees today

wow. just.. wow.

So, Emerald is dead, and we cant even say that it went down in a blaze of glory. From what I’ve been able to learn this morning, all of the problems were because of the malicious, childish and selfish actions of the few, which destroyed the fantastic project for all of us. Its kind of sad really. I also think that the way that LL handled the entire situation was somewhat stunted, but I guess that doesn’t matter – when has LL ever cared what the users think?

Fear not! As has been stated all over the grid and the web today, Phoenix rises form the ashes of Emerald. We can all continue to enjoy the same great aspects of Emerald without all the uncool things that went along with it. Kudos to all of those of you who are continuing the development of this great viewer. I, a looooooong time user of SL, and many of the other residents of SL thank you.

Reek is awesome

So, I was doing that GOOD SH*T HUNT and I kind of got stuck on #2, Reek.  Not becasue I couldn’t find it, the prize was easy to spot.   But the store.. holy crap.

Think of all the bling-tards you’ve ever seen.  All of the terrible hair you’ve ever seen.  All of the nasty skins you’ve ever seen.  Think of noobs circa 2006.  Remember how AWFUL those made your aesthetic sensibilities feel, and how they made you want to scrub your eyes out with a pumice stone?  Reek is the EXACT opposite.

I didn’t even move from the TP spot before I took a photo to show my husband, who doesn’t even play SL.  THIS is the outside of the store:

New Skins!

So, somehow my skin files magically resurrected themselves, so I’m going to finish making up the sets with these ones and then make new actual skin bases. I have nine new skins to release shortly.

New build, new makeup (rl)

So, not that anyone goes to my store, or reads my blog, but I have (another) new build. The hole in the wall to envy is gone, because envy moved away/closed that location. She also sold me one of her little plots, which I’m just using for prims.. so have a little lawn space beside my store. and i needed more space. so skins are downstairs, eyes are upstairs.

What makes me all concernicus, is my freaky desire to use pink in the build. I don’t even like pink. In fact, I HATE pink. But because of MAC’s damned Hello Kitty release (more about that later) I feel inable to create anything that isn’t black-white-pink-grey. I’ve included my own color change script in most of the pink things so when I finally snap put of this, it won’t take me 20 years to get rid of all of it.
