We’ll continue our tradition of mythical creatures of course as well for February’s round of Fantasy Gacha Carnival. Since the ocean tends to be a bit too cold this time of year, we’ll go take off to warmer areas with the creatures known as “Harpies”, half bird, half woman.
In Greek mythology, a harpy (Greek: harpyia, pronounced [hárpuja]) was one of the winged spirits best known for constantly stealing all food from Phineus. The literal meaning of the word seems to be “that which snatches” as it comes from the Greek word harpazein, which means “to snatch”.
All mesh pieces are materials enabled to make full use of what SL has to offer these days… but look fantastic without materials of course as well (all images are taken with normal windlight and no materials).
Each round of gameplay rewards you with one random color, !dM “Harpyia” comes in 18 different colors (13 common, 5 rares) to win. All original boxes come with the following pieces [if you purchased the item through a 3rd party, please direct any complaints to them if one of these pieces is missing]:
!dM “Harpyia” Air Spirits consist of rigged mesh wings with attached flexi feathers (optionally with a spread wing pose that overruns arms of your normal AO), unrigged feather tail and thigh-high rigged harpy legs [or “bird hooker boots” as I like to call them ;)] with matching alpha layer. The boots are menu scripted to fit S/M/L size; for info how to access the menu please see instructions further down.
**WHITE DOVE**, **SILVER**, **SNOWFLAKE**, **FLAMINGO**, **PARROT**, **TEAL**, **CHOCOLATE**, **HAZELNUT**, **STORMRAVEN**, **LILAC GRAY**, **WARM GRAY**, **SABLE** and **NIGHTHAWK**
**GOLDEN NIGHTINGALE**, **PHOENIX**, **ICE VOX**, **PEACOCK** and **BIRD OF PARADISE**
[If you’re unsure what a harpy wears these days fashion-wise, take a look at our 2nd machine at Fantasy Gacha Carnival as well, it contains an ensamble of rigged belt and chest piece, decorated with precious stones and entangled strings of twisted silks (as worn on the color key).]
Now the important part (like really I am not kidding type important):
[you get tarred & feathered if you ask me this]
The Legs come with a resize menu. Please note, simple clicking DOES NOT WORK on RIGGED MESH unless it is rezzed. I did not add a hud so there is no listeners constanty running and you’re more flexible to adjust size when changing shape; the script used idles when it’s not touch-activated.
To access menu, right-click when wearing and choose “touch” or choose “more> touch” on firestorm’s pie-menu. Firestorm will as well allow you to use touch function directly from inventory, just right-click the attached item (same like you would choose “add” or “wear”) and chose “touch” in context menu.
If you can’t see the mesh, it’s time to update your SL viewer.
TEXTURES and MESHES:
“Harpyia” is materials enabled and looks both stunning with regular textures (as seen on the vendor image) as well as SL’s new materials!
All mesh parts are own designs and self-rigged, however, the wings are created as a derivation of an old time sculpt package [altered in compliance with the creator ToS]. All textures for this set are original illustrations created by Chandra Meehan for (*chanimations and deviousMind – if you find them used by anybody else not connected to us, please help protect original content in SL and immediately inform us!
Thank you very much in advance!
