Can’t be sloppy with Appliers! #InWorldz

So I have been learning all about using appliers these past few weeks. I found the E-VOLVE ones very easy to use, but when it came down to the more complicated Mesh Body, Sapphira… the one & only in InWorldz, I believe. Well I needed a bit of help from the Creator & it took me a while to understand how to use them correctly. Now though its plain sailing… apart from, I have learnt that I need to be more accurate with my layer textures, I have always been a bit sloppy, you know leaving things long & using the system to shorten lengths etc Now its a whole new ball game, my recent designs have pristine layer textures, coz ya just can’t alter them once they are on the Mesh body 😉

I have found renewed inspiration for my designs too, I find myself designing for the Mesh body, I have always loved layers, now I simply adore them. All of my new designs have been created for use with the appliers. It takes a lot more time though, bagging everything up before you can release them. I have loads of new designs waiting, which just need bagging before they can be released.

Life as a creator in any world is not an easy one, but it is so enjoyable

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

New Furniture Store #InWorldz

On my return I quickly rezzed out my old stores & filled them as fast as I could. Over the last dew days I have been thinking about changing things, the layout, the decor, even the buildings. In all of the years I have been in VW’s my main focus has always been fashion. I do create other things, like furniture & landscapes, I just don’t seem to Market those as much as I do my Fashion store. In the past I have always just placed furniture upstairs in my Main store, last year I copied my store & placed the furniture in its own place, but still not really focusing on it. Now I have purposely built a Furniture store, where I can place out all of my furniture & Furnishings on display. Lots of room for me to fill with lovely new creations I am working on 😉

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

The 2×2 Deal #InWorldz

Last Month I took advantage of the Free Month & purchased a Region of my own again, in anticipation of the New 2×2 Deal that is expected to start up next week.

I have so many plans for the other 3 regions that will join mine when the deal starts up & I have been preparing builds ready for when I have the other 3 regions.

This is my Region ~ Rose Petal Island It holds all of my Creations so is like a Mega Store 😉

This is the Deal

Four 256×256 meter regions arranged in a square. Each of the four regions would hold a maximum of 12,000 prims for a total of 48,000 prims allowed in a 2×2 area. If you have a region with less than 12k prims you can add the deal.

Today also saw the launch of the much talked about Premium Accounts or InWorldz Plus Membership

Get your own little plot with roughly 1,400 prims at $5.95 USD, with 500I’z per month spending monies, unlimited use of the Plus Sandbox and more!

Don’t need a parcel? That’s fine too! You’ll get all the perks of being a plus member including merchant discounts and access to the premium sandbox, plus 1500I’z at the beginning of each month!

I think that current Region owners will become plus members automatically, but don’t quote me on that one 😉

Branching Out…. again!

In 2009 when I became completely dissatisfied with Secondlife, having been there for 3yrs at that point. I set out to find me a new world, with the intentions of setting up my virtual business on them. Well the 1st grid I found became a disaster after only 2mths in, I don’t think it is even around anymore, but that disaster led me to my present virtual world… InWorldz… my Home. I did try others, with that same intention of setting up a store, but I never felt comfortable in them & most did not have a currency, so I stuck with InWorldz, giving up secondlife entirely when they 1st started changing Tos & it was explained to me that basically, they owned my stuff! I also gave up on the idea of having a presence in all worlds, I had made an avatar in most, but that was about all I had done. There was one I did open up a store in… Avination, but that was short lived, no one there, not at that time, wasn’t worth the effort & it is a big effort to open a store & fill it with your goods on any world.

I have been in Inworldz for over 5yrs now & just recently I have had that urge to discover new worlds again. Not to find myself a new home, I am happy with the Home I have in InWorldz, even if I am tired of all the recent drama we have seen on the Forums. I have the intention of branching out, setting up my store in new worlds & having some sort of presence in each.

I found 2 new worlds… The Adult grid & Virtual Paradise Grid Both Grids owned by People I know from Inworldz #VPGrid being the one I feel most comfortable in because it has a different feel to it, like a breath of fresh air…

So I have been busily uploading some of my content & stocking up my stores in each grid. It isn’t an easy task to do & doesn’t leave me much time for creating NEW, but its a slow time in VW’s with the summer being here & most People out enjoying the Sun & not stuck behind their computers & in VW’s much.

I have also set up a blog for Virtual Paradise Grid with the intentions of running that the same way I run this blog, as an informative place… well that’s the intention anyway lol. I have made some new pages on my Store blog so people can see what content I have in each grid

T.A.G
Virtual Paradise

I hope you will come visit my stores in each world, should you decide to venture there
Bye for now
