A few years ago, after the freebies were removed from IDI (welcome center), Wolf-Tek created the Freebie Ring. I have always used it dotted around my region & it has brought lots of residents in to it. However there are only a handful of Merchants/land owners actually using it. Considering that the main cry by most in IW is that there are no people about, or ‘no one ever comes to my region’ it really surprises me that there are not more using this vital FREE tool for bringing residents to your Region. It is so easy to set up & use, there is a website where Residents can look to see where the freebies are & what is on offer, or they can just use the inworld ring to jump from one to the other.
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 😉
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?
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 😉
