Day Three – Castle Queen Pea gets her walls, and Shengri La gets terraformed (poor dear). After getting flung into outerspace last time, I return to discover interesting anomalies. For whatever reason, the sculptis have become full bright, or maybe they were full bright and I didn’t notice them. Eek. Despite the obvious need for assistance, I focus instead on walls. The first set is laid:
The courtyard detailing presents challenges:
After some really annoying linkage issues (link, and one prim goes haywire. Always one prim, never two, or three. But that one is a doozie, witness the prototype plant hanger. It fights me all day, with that one stupid prim rotating. After the fun and games yesterday, and knowing these things need to be copied in multiples, I don’t dare unlink. the lamp presents a challenge all its own. I plan to fix it once I get a nimbus script that works.
Shengri La Spirit gets most of her landscaping ‘bones’, with only moderate squabbling. The process of terraforming really hammers the server, which means I can build, or Spirit can be terraformed. Check out Spirit’s fjord. At some point, I’ll throw a span over it so we can visit the light house from the castle. If only we had a smooth tool in OpenSim!
At one point, I wander back to Second Life to Shengri La to work on our community gateway for the fashion industry, only to get distracted with arcane questions like ‘how do you know the coordinates of the island on the world map?’
Despite these distractions, eventually the bulldozers get tired and I return to work on Castle Queen Pea.
Still some fullbright on the stone swags. Since we’re not making these swags out of radium-rich granite, I begin the process of ripping fullbright out of them.
Full bright completely gone. Ready to assault the walls.
Details of the courtyard at sunset. Check out those FINE lamps, will you?
Details of the crenellations and stained glass. I definitely will crank up Illustrator tomorrow.
Details of the seagate, at sunset and midnight:
Finally, after trials and tribulation, we present Castle Queen Pea, with WALLS. And Lamps. And non-full-bright stone swags. By moonlight (so romantical) and by sunset, here are her bones. Tomorrow, the sea market begins to take form. And maybe she’ll get those 400-prim flower arrangements I’ve been considering. Prim count at the end of Day Three, a paltry 4,000 prims.
