Time Lord Walking Sticks – For Time Travelers And Country Gentlemen

Huzzah and such! A new product (actually, a pair of them):

Time Lord Walking Stick at Second Life Marketplace

Time Lord Walking Stick - Dark Ram's Horn

In honor of the newest Doctor, the walking stick of the First Doctor. This is a common country-gentleman style, so it’s not limited to SF roleplay.

via Second Life Marketplace – @DF@ Timelord Walking Stick – Light Ram's Horn.

I’m very happy to get this done, it’s been a hard slog of prim-twisting, image-wrangling, and animation-tweaking (not to mention script-monkeying).

Good Lord, is that the time? Doesn’t matter, just hop in the old TARDIS and arrive just in time for breakfast, well rested!

The sticks are in honor of The First Doctor, who carried a similar walking stick and apparently fended off something called the Zarbi with it.

This new Doctor Who feller may well end up with a cane, too, if his rabid fan based have anything to say about it. There might be bunnies.

Here’s a variety of hats with lots of different texture options. Some of these are available sized and rotated for Dinkies kitty avatars and classic Tinies, but should all be modifiable.

The Chameleonic hats have texture switcher scripts for the hat bands and bodies, and most of them also have a resizer in the root prim. Just touch the band or body to get a texture menu.

The Royal Wedding/Ascot hat is a teaser – a whole new line will be coming out with single-texture versions, and also a texture change/fatpack.

This is more of a memorandum for myself, I’ve placed an ad at SLUniverse.com for a banner that will reference the images in this omnibus.

And I’ve got a lot of “Victorian Wedding/Ascot Hats” queued up and nearly ready to list at the Marketplace, Caspervend, and promote at SLUniverse. I re-discovered them in my inventory, where they’d been sitting, 95% ready to sell, for months.

More later on why I’m suddenly motivated to build again after a long hiatus…

Anyway, ta da sekrit preview to all of my ones of readers!

Also to do:

  • Finish pinning the hats in the upcoming fatpack and singlepacks for a Victorian Wedding/Ascot hat, because the rotations and positions need to be tidied. I left off with the one I was wearing.
  • Finish boxing them all in one fatpack, then boxing individually
  • List at Marketplace, fatpack first: upload fatpack to marketplace, then singlepacks, then add all the related items at once with the “quick click” method.
  • Stick fatpack and singlepack boxes and marketing textures in the Caspervend box, try the “different color version” thing, get them visible at Primbay.

Fortunately, I had made all the marketing textures already, that’s a chore done.

Silver and Ebony Walking Sticks – NEW at Froobert’s Further West

Dhughan here, having got my stumps under me and motivated, here’s a new walking stick at last:

Silver and Ebony Walking Stick – Walk Like A Gent!

There are actually 2 sticks, one is compatible with the basic AO that is included and also the Gentleman Jim AO by Posture is Everything (Kamilah Hauptmann, proprietrice) and the other is compatible just with the basic AO. The second one is provided as a backup for those who’d like to try adding more animations to the config card. IM me inworld if interested in knowing how.

The bally Marketplace wasn’t working, after carefully setting up the ruddy Merchant Outbox with all the little oojahs that go in there (sticks, landmarks, info card, basic AO, and a poster-texture)… oh drat, it’s probably best if I just relog.

And there it is, visible on the Marketplace at last. The walking stick is also available inworld at the following locations:

Further West Trading Co., Steelhead City: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Steelhead/108/151/26

Froobert’s Tweddle Outlet: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Tweddle/224/226/82

St Helens Dry Goods: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Steelhead%20St%20Helens/64/158/39

And there are stick vendors at the St Helens Nature Reserve and at Further Rest, a walker’s and railbird’s retreat and pub now under construction.

And so forth. Onward!

Zero Brush Addon By: Blender Sensei

As seen at Blender Nation – an intriguing and very intuitive texturing and painting addon for Blender that’s getting a lot of buzz in comments. For one thing, it’s easy to use, and for another, it’s free. There is a library of free textures as well – the license seems to be free to use for commercial applications, no mention of any restrictions for Second Life. The main product looks interesting, a productivity and organizational suite for Blender called Sensei Format that has a lot of useful tweaks and tools for serious Blender artists (especially useful: integrated texture and materials libraries along with a render preview).

Zero Brush by Blender Sensei

Also another video tutorial by the developer/designer:

I’ve installed this plugin and played with it a little – the bumpmapping and specular part alone makes it worth a look for anybody working with Blender. I’m now up to version 2.71 in Blender and slowly making my way through my various tutorials that I’ve found online, and books found online too.

There’s a texture pack available on the video description that can be loaded up as a brush library – a good basic set that seems to be the same full complement of all the categories available from the Blender Sensei site.

I’ve downloaded it but it’ll need to be unzipped and placed somewhere handy for use, as it’ll work as a texture library for GIMP projects as well. There’s nothing fancy, just basic stuff to stand in for better custom textures on my projects.
