Well, I couldn’t resist the charms of the new Kani Rabbit from Lost Forest Creatures. So I’m currently trying out a look, in basic black.
Mathue’s getting into Sculpies. He’s using Rokuro to make lathe sculpy for his lamp:
HUDs are fun, but they can quickly become clutter. To cut down on the clutter, combining a tracker, flight booster, landmark history, etc. into a single tool has been the goal of many SL product designers. There are a lot of good ones out there, but so far I’ve settled on Mystitool by Mystical Cookie.
Well, for starters it has a great kit. It includes:
- a tracker
- flight assistance
- landmark management
- object rezzer
- stationary camera (helpful in those large builds)
- a builders work area and elevator when you need to get away from it all
- instant table and chairs
- URL catcher
- and other handy tricks and devices (3 menus worth!)
Next it has a backup and restore system which makes keeping those setting and easy upgrades. And by easy upgrades, I mean easy! The server automatically hands you a fresh copy when an update is available. At your convenience swap tools, load settings again, and away you go.
This basic tool is a handy kit and I wear mine all the time. It’s available for $423 lindens (less than USD $2) through the usual places including SL Exchange.
Shore waves really add to the look of a seaside sim. Lovecraft Forest has been employing a nice little kit from Ante Flan, aptly named Waves V2. The kit is pretty much is dummy proof, just place and drop along your shore. It comes with both simple “washing” waves and well as classic rolling waves. Different spray particle generators can touch up piers and docks for a realistic splashing action against solid in-water objects. Well worth the L$700, available both at SLExchange and Ante’s in-world store. Ante includes complete instructions as well as sound files.
