Shengri La Spirit Gets Its Groove On
Ok, ok, I know I promised I’d only dump a few hundred, max a thousand prims into Spirit at a time, so we could look at things. But it’s so difficult to stop when you have prim cattails and prim mushrooms and bunny fountains and crystals just waiting to be planted. At least it is for me. Your mileage may vary on this.
Sprit just got its terraforming done – harder to do that you’d think, given the terrain editing tools and the fact that things in OpenSim are still a little exciting (the wild west of virtual worlds!)
OMG! Only 10,000 prims left!
I’m starting to get a little worried. I only have 10,000 prims left to go, and I haven’t even tackled the back island…or the sea floor. And I want tea sets, and a lot of them. It’s troubling to think I may run out before I see my vision fully instantiated. O, the pain!
A Picture is Worth 34,559 Prims
Heh. Somehow, Spirit is just so comforting when the main SL tm grid plummets like a wingshot duck. It’s just there, with its own issues, but issues that are getting wrung out every day that passes. I wish I could say the same for the main grid.
The Path to the Sacred Grove
So tonight I went ahead and planted a few trees, finished the Sacred Grove, and added a few special touches here and there. My favorite has to be either the prim cattails or the cave of crystals.
The Sacred Grove
I can’t wait for our official photographer to get into Spirit. She did manage a brief log-in, and I discovered a really unique bug. I was trying to im her, so I clicked on her…and got the edit menu…and axes. So being the curious sort, I decided to see what would happen is I dragged the arrows around. Yup, you guessed it: her avatar came along for the ride, all around the sim, courtesy of an edit gone badly awry. Given that its little feet are peeking out from under the curtains, I think we can classify this as a bug.
Hopefully tomorrow we’ll see Calli in and snapping away. She’s so talented, I know she will do justice to Spirit in all ways, especially its historic nature.
Bunny from the fountain
I’m hoping that I’m going to get my promised ‘surprise’ this week, and Spirit can catch a breather and have a bit more tuning done. It’s very exciting and I just can’t wait!
Shengri La Spirit and Her New Terraforming
So the rolecall at the end of the day: 1/2 Calli, 1 Shenlei, and 34,559 prims in Shengri La Spirit! Yay!
