The new round of Creators Market is about to start! (April 1st - Not a joke!) Be ready for the six new releases under the "Dipped in" theme: Mesh, a script, textures and animations.
UV Mapping and Texturing Basics isn't finished yet (there's all the material related to texturing, AO, etc.), but currently, it is possible to follow the next series in parallel. For this reason, this weekend, we're starting with two books to have us acquainted into working with Curves. Curves are a useful tool, and also easy and fun! The books are released to promotional price this weekend only, under Sixty Linden Weekends.
New full permissions mesh street lamp for Builders Bargains, materials ready. Released to promotional price this weekend only, 50% off. Grab it at Black Tulip's store at Creators Market before the price goes up!
"My daughter" is a couples street lamp, and the new release for Woeful Wednesday. There are six cuddle and kiss animations included, but hold still, it's not going to be that quiet to just enjoy them. While the couple are enjoying themselves, a little ghost will show up and whisper things in local chat. Stop by the store, Darkness section, to know more about :o)
This weekend we have a new poses pack, including the mirrored versions. Set to promotional price during this weekend, grab them before the price goes up! Also, remember submitting your photographs to the store Flickr's group. Join here and add your pics.
This week's new release for Woeful Wednesday is a pair of unrigged mesh eyes with color change and resize HUD, "Cute as a button". In the right (dark) lighting setup, this turns to be a fine piece that will accompany you in your creepiest nightmares. There are two versions of the eyes, with and without specular maps.
It's ready! In addition to Twisted Hunt's main gift, you can also stop by the store, and click the easel for directions to complete a side hunt that will lead you to the following set of poses and corresponding mirrored poses:
As an extra, there's included a low LI mesh Magick word (with materials). This hunt gift is set to L$5, and will be available after the hunt at full price.
Should you decide hunting for it, this is how it works:
The twisted statues in the store have the clues
Each statue asks you a question and gives you several possible options as answers, showing from a menu
When you choose an option, then the statue gives you a clue
This clue could be a good clue, or not - Only one answer is the right answer, per statue
When you obtain the right clue, this clue tells you which statue to ask next
When you have all the right clues, the answers you gave in the menu, written in order, lead you directly to the gift
The order is relevant, so you have to know which is the first statue to begin with!
This is your first clue to find it:
«Everything begins at the beginning, and this is no exception. Beginnings at times show you the world upside down and may look like the end. It's all a matter of perspective. However, beginnings always have a distinctive mark. A good explorer will find it.»
Of course, you can just hunt for the object, a small black tulip, but I hope this way is more fun!
In addition to yesterday's release (the barbeque kit for designers: mesh, scripts, animations), this weekend we have yet more news, released for Sixty Linden Weekends. Two new full permissions mesh items, and an essential book within the Blender series: Materials in Blender. This, together with the next books in the series, will lead us to learning how to create normal and specular maps, what it's been called Materials in SL.
