“A Retro-Valentine’s Gift”
(*chanimations and deviousMind GROUPGIFT
We’ve seen quite enough of reds and hearts these days – so it’s time to show our love with something else now, that’s more likely to survive as well spring and summer season – and say a big “THANK YOU!” to you all for ‘sacrificing’ group space, and sticking with us during all this time. (It is still in past messages, so if SL ate yours, make sure you look it up in time, messages are only kept 2 weeks! Should anything go wrong with the past notices for you, it’s available for groupmembers as a dollarbie in our mainstore)
At the same time, this gift might be still useful to any of you who aren’t so much into the red-hearts and I-love-you’s to send a Valentine’s greeting to a loved one.
“A Retro-Valentine’s Gift” is our group gift to you and includes the following photography props and poses:
POSES and PROPS (no mod/no transfer):
• (*chanimations – retroValentine’s – 10 PRIMS,
• (*chanimations – retroValentine’s (standing box) – 10 PRIMS,
• (*chanimations “Love&Peace” multiPoseball (optional) – 1 PRIM
• (*chanimations sunFlower Heart (right upper arm)
• (*chanimations DaisyFlower (mouth),
• (*chanimations – LavaLamp **BLUE/YELLOW** (left hand)
As usually, sit on the rezzed giftbox, and pose-menu appears when clicking the box again. The poses can be adjusted to your avatar size by chatting /1a in local chat while you are sitting on the prop.
OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION:
The LavaLamp requires SL preferences to have BASIC SHADERS (in SL preferences, Graphics Tab) enabled. If Basic Shaders are turned off, the lamp appears dark and the typical glow and radiance they have is missing. As well you have to have ‘Animate Textures’ turned on – This should be on by default, but if it’s off you need to do the following:
• Open ‘ADVANCED’ menu by pressing [ctrl]+[alt]+[shift]+D
• Then go into ‘RENDERING’ and make sure you see an X marking ‘Animate Textures’
When clicking the top metal cover of the lava lamp, you can toggle light on/off – to see any effect, ‘Local and Nearby Lights’ rendering has to be enabled in SL preferences (Graphics Tab). The light emits in an radius of 10m.
The Lava Lamps have been released in several different colors and styles this week at deviousMind little Retro- & Psychedlic store – which I spontaneously named “Time Warp” as it seemed most fitting to our otherwise ‘less modern’ sim setup. Stop by there some day, it’s next to deviousPizza photospot, and will have an own TP sign soon as well. The floorpillows and mandala’s from the park-area will move there as well some of these days to de-clutter everything a bit!
The Lava Lamp textures are illustrated animations by Chandra Meehan created for (*chanimations and deviousMind. Please inform us urgently if you find them used by anybody not connected to us. Please help protect original content, as it required a lot of time to create them.
BAD SCULPTIE RENDERING?
If you have problems with sculpties seeming rough edged and not properly rezzing – go to Advanced Menu (if it doesn’t show on the top bar, press CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-D to show it), Debug Setting… – type ‘RenderVolumeLODFactor’ (without quotes) and set it to 4.000. It will take a short moment and your sculpties will render smoother when looking at them from a distance! Search the Wiki if you want more info about the RenderVolumeLODFactor.
