Think and wonder…

…,Wonder and Think by Dr. Seuss

Happy weekend everyone!!

Showing some fashion items that are currently at The Season’s Story, that continues on until the end of the month. If you haven’t been, now is the time to go when it’s quieted down.  The iron fence and gate is by Merak and also at the same event.

I’m also featuring items from this month’s round of Deco(c)rate, which is the barn by Merak and the basin sink and towel rack by Peaches.  The barn has a land impact of 68 and the sink is 5 and rack only 1. These are items are a monthly subscription, so if you click on the Deco(c)rate link it will take you directly to their site where you can learn about this event and how to purchase these items.

Have a good weekend!

The American Countryside

027ps2

There’s a bit of excitement in the air as the month draws to a close when the doors will open for the next round of the Arcade.  The gallery is now up, but I’ve not really had a chance to sit and go through it just yet.  Though what I’ve seen so far in the blogs and flickr it’s another great round of amazing stuff starting with another set that I’m showing today by Hive.

008ps

The American Countryside gacha is just fantastic. There are 17 commons and 2 rares, which are the barn and the shed and the reward for hitting the machine 25 times is the fence kit that has a secondary color option on touch.  The two rares have a texture change option — for the barn: the bottom front panel and for the shed: the side displaying a faded american flag.

So many wonderful pieces to use as a single unit or as a complete set to decor your own homes.

Have a great Saturday!

A day out in the country

011ps2

Today I am featuring the upcoming new release by JIAN of their lively labs that will be at the upcoming September round of The Arcade.  These are just a few of the dogs in the collection… the animated ones and if you think these are cute wait until you see the static decor ones.

The complete collection consists of 19 dogs, 16 commons and 3 rares with 1 reward to collect after you play their machine 25 times.  There are 4 rezzed wandering pups, 4 worn companion pups, 4 held ones and 4 static decor pups. Then there is 3 animated adult labs that are rare.  The decor pups are not shown in this post, but I can tell you as mentioned above they are cute and just adorable.  The colors of the dogs are white, chocolate, black and golden, which I’ve made sure to feature one of each color in this post.

Besides the static ones all the animals have unique little things they do. For instance the adult animated worn companions are idle, walk, runs, chases its tail, pants, barks and digs in the dirt as shown here. I really loved seeing this as it just brought it to life for me.  To give you another idea the small companion pups are idle, walk, run, pant and bark as well as yawn and scratch its ears as they walk with your avatar.

I can’t wait to show you the rest soon!

El Sabor de la Mexicana

Cinco De Mayo 015

When I saw this top and skirt from Ala Folie several days ago I thought it would be perfect to go around in for Cinco de Mayo.  The outfit comes with a HUD to change the colors of the top and skirt and my only wish was that I could have done that also for the middle portion so I could have made it white to reflect the Mexican Flag colors a little better.  This still works really well and I added the white head piece from LODE.  I am really loving the head accessories from LODE these days and this one is no exception and at 50L chance gacha you can’t go wrong with any color you get.

I’m a bit squirrely.

Only because I spent the good majority of my time in Second Life this evening resolving my issue of not being able to use shadows and was successful only to not even use the picture showing the shadows.   Maybe tomorrow.
To make a long story short. I updated my driver, which after some slight adjustments fixed the crashing problem when I enabled advanced lighting.  Though if it were that easy.  That in turn created a problem of mesh going invincible as a result of the AMD Catalyst 14.12 driver not rendering rigged mesh unless the hardware skinning is disabled.  Well doing that meant I couldn’t use advanced lighting and that means no shadows.  A little more researching the issue led me to Inara Pey’s blog, where it provided a workaround to this problem.   Basically copying some DLL files and placing them into your viewer folder and that ultimately solved the last problem.
I feel all sorts of accomplished now.
