Vendors… Multi or old style? #InWorldz

For years I used the 1 prim old style vendors for selling my wares, then about 2yrs ago I went to multi vendors really only for the gifting & discount options that you can offer to customers. I was out shopping a few days ago & had not really noticed this about myself before, but I really only purchase items from 1 prim, old style vendors myself. So it got me thinking (which is often a bad thing lol). I do not like to stand in front of a multi vendor flipping through to find something that I like, sometimes having to wait a while for the photo’s to rez in, so what makes me think that my customers do?

So for the past few days I have built a new store which I am now filling with old style 1 prim vendors, its hard work, I had forgotten that lol. But I am also having the multi vendors around for those who prefer them. It is going to take me a while before I can launch the new store, so my old one is still up & fully stocked with multi vendors filled to the prims with all of my creations 😉

I like how I can display my items in one prim. I like how I can make the store more user friendly with 1 prim vendors. My multi vendors are great… but no matter how I lay them out, you still have to wait a bit for the next page to show the photo’s

Venice Project Progress #InWorldz

It has been a few Months now since I began working on this project, creating the textures has been challenging, but so rewarding too. This is where I am today

I am at the stage where I can no longer go from the maps, I have to just improvise. Perhaps had I used all 4 sims for this project I might have been able to do it more justice, but I have used 2 sims & you just cannot fit it all in on 2 sims lol

I wanted to create a scenic place for shopping & entertainment & I think I have achieved that so far. I am not looking to make money from it, my store rental prices start from just 7 izzies per week. I will be offering residential rentals too, once I complete the work. I have 2 styles of Houses I have built for residential. The Palace style & the canal Style…

The Palace House is large & will be furnished

The canal House is roomy but much smaller than the Palace House

So that is where I am so far… still a way to go yet, but it is coming along nicely 😉

Venice #InWorldz ~ Coming along ;)

They say Rome wasn’t built in a day, well I can tell you that Venice #InWorldz ain’t going to be either!

When I began this project I knew it would be time consuming, having to create the textures as I go, mesh the builds as i create them (who would have thought we would ever be prim concious in #InWorldz… not I)  It is coming along nicely though, even if I do say so myself, what do you think?

A few pics to show the progression 😉

Venice #InWorldz

A life long dream of mine is visiting Venice, which I hope to do some day soon. In the mean time I am creating Venice in the virtual world of  #InWorldz. Phase One – Saint Mark’s Square – is almost complete, I have 18 shops for rental. I am currently offering them at just 1 izzy per week & that price will remain for anyone taking up a store rental now – so long as they do not let their box run out – Once phase one is completed, the rentals will go up. I have plans for entertainment once this phase is complete. Gondola’s are equipped & ready to go 😉

The Enjoyment of Building in #InWorldz

I had forgotten just how much I enjoyed Building, I am currently building up my 3 new sims having taken the 2×2 deal 😉

Google Map has become my very best friend, a godsend for the textures I needed to create. I am almost ready to reveal the 1st part of my Build, just a few more things to finish off & it will be ready, perhaps not till after my RL Holiday in July… I am off to Gran Canaria for 10 days! I am going with my middle daughter & her family, so exciting! 😀

Later in the year I hope to be visiting the country, that I love with a passion & those parts of that country that I am trying to Construct in 3D

I build in prims & convert to Mesh to keep the prim usage down, thanks to Benski I have discovered just how easy that is to do. I am also trying to attempt some builds in SketchUp, again I owe my thanks to Benski & his tuts 😉

Life is very good for me right now… I am Happy… I am Content… I look to the future with Enthusiasm
