“When plants take over the planet…”
With the month of May, nature has long been awake from its winter sleep and spring has long brought back the greens and colorful blossoms each living plant calls their own. “Thyia” is our homage to nature and all nature spirits protecting it in mythology and fiction. The seed was dropped for quite some time, but now she’s finally stretching her leaves for Fantasy Gacha Carnival in May 2014, and will come to deviousMind mainstore afterwards.
This round’s theme has asked for creations inspired by the letter F – so here’s what we came up with: “Thyia” is a fantasy creature, best described as a Forest Elemental combining both fragile and furious aspects of nature. She walks the line of forest nymph to nightshade creature with futuristic and mysterious elements, and is sure not a force to be underestimated. ;)
Each round of gameplay rewards you with one random color, !dM “Thyia” comes in 10 different colors with 2 set parts per color (fancy body foilage and ivy jewelry adornments), as well as 5 spectacular rare pieces (color change) to distinguish one plant creature from another. So we end up with a total of 20 commons and 5 rares that can be won in the following colors:
**IVORY** (white), **SPROUT** (pale green), **SILVER THISTLE** (lilac), **POISON IVY** (satuated green), **NIGHTSHADE** (dark turquise), **WHITHERED LEAVES** (anthrazith), **FIRE IVY** (dark brown with vibrant orange hues), **ICEFLOWER** (pale mints and blues), **TIGER LILY** (greens & oranges) and **SCARLET FALL** (array of satuated autumn reds).
All mesh items are material enabled to make full use of what SL has to offer these days.. but look fantastic without materials of course as well (the gacha key is taken with normal windlight only).
ATTENTION, please take note of 2 important things:
• This costume requires an updated SL viewer that supports fitted mesh! Please don’t message me that your mesh looks broken, that’s what happens when your viewer doesn’t support this mesh type yet.
• The skin used in pictures is not part of the costume and was created by Aikea Rieko from “The Plastik” for Fantasy Fair 2014 (please see more info further down).
The following sets are available and can be won randomly in one of the above colors:
(10 common colors)
Body foilage sets include rigged mesh bottom and top wrap to rest on hips and chest, with ivy “bra” cups and modesty cover foilage. The leave spine and lotus flower elements can be adjusted to your mood through color menu.
The chest is scripted to be worn cupless or with pasties, and you can choose between 3 different base avatar breast sizes (breast slider 0-40, 40-70, 50-100). Included is as well an unrigged ivy cover to allow you to freely place it on your avatar. Modesty leaves and pasties are unrigged with resize&stretch option.
IVY JEWELRY ADORNMENTS:
(10 common colors)
Fitted mesh rigged posture collar with alpha mask (this is needed additional due to the collar shape) as well as unrigged ivy wreath with flowers, ivy hair piece and bracelets with resize&stretch option. The lotus flower elements can be adjusted to your mood through color menu.
(fitted mesh rigged)
Thigh high plant boots combining a very futuristic feel with the elements of nature. The boots have a bark-like surface structure, grow thorns, and have a thorn vine with calla blossoms wrap around the left boot. Includes color change menu for glow color elements and base textures to match with your commons.
Venus Flytrap Spaulders:
(fitted mesh rigged)
The spikes that indicate your opponent “don’t mess with this one!”. Intoxicating shoulder adornment inspired by the leaves of “Venus Flytrap” plants. Includes color change menu for glow color elements. The parts can be worn together or only one sided, and will fit as well with the arm vines should you be lucky to win them as well. .
(fitted mesh rigged)
Beautiful arm adornment inspired by Calla blossoms and thorny vines, wrapping around the length of your arms and radiating exotic mystic. Includes color change menu for glow color elements. The parts can be worn together or only one sided, and will fit as well with the spaulders should you be lucky to win them as well.
Made of ivy, leaves, plant elements and exotic flowers – a crown befitting any fairy queen or ruler of the forest! Includes color change menu for glow color elements, base textures and flowers – all pieces can be individually selected for customized color combinations. Resize&Stretch option.
Made of ivy, leaves, plant elements and spikes for the forest warrior nymphs – you wouldn’t dare to mess with those! Includes color change menu for glow color elements, base textures and flowers – all pieces can be individually selected for customized color combinations. Resize&Stretch option.
HOW TO ACCESS COLOR MENUS:
To access any of the color menus on rigged mesh items, right-click the mesh when wearing it and choose “touch” [or choose “more> touch” on firestorm’s pie-menu]. Sometimes you need to edit a non-rigged item on your avatar first before you can edit rigged mesh.
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.
[You could rezz the piece as well, however, we would advise to use one of the above options preferably. As gacha items are no copy, please ensure grid status and/or land settings before attempting to rezz. If it gets lost due to SL asset server failures, it unfortuntely can’t be replaced.]
If you can’t see mesh in general, it’s time to update your SL viewer. (You knew that much already!). If the mesh pieces look all crazy spiked glitchy too you, then you are not on a Fitted Mesh compatible viewer and need to update to latest version. (Official SL viewer and Firestorm support fitted mesh at this point; more to come for sure!)
Please be aware that fitted mesh is not a perfect “One for All!” solution and it cannot handle extremes very well. There will still be moments where you need to adjust your shape for an exact fit.
Prizes are random, no matter how often you play it. Please understand, that we cannot sell you a color directly or exchange it for you; it’s unfair to those who play it and won’t happen, so don’t ask. Doubles and tripples are part of the game, and there is plenty of gacha trading groups in SL where you may be able to trade your doubles for those pieces missing.
We are not taking any responsibility for 3rd party sales (such as via yard sales etc.), so please be sure to check the box and content for validity and if you have any trouble, contact the person you bought the double from.
The gacha will be available at our mainstore after the event, so you have plenty of time to get what you’re going after.
TEXTURES and MESHES:
All textures and meshes for this set have been 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!
Sometimes things are just ment to be. One of them was coming right at me one morning while browsing flickr and seeing Vae’s new release for this year’s Fantasy Fair. So one thing came to another and as a result, all colors for our “Thyia” set are made to blend in perfectly with “Asaia” skins created by Aikea Rieko from “The Plastik” for Fantasy Fair 2014, which started parallel to Fantasy Gacha Carnival this month. Thank you again so very much for this fantastic creation Vae, it’s amazing how well “Asaia” and “Thyia” work together ?
Please stop by her inworld mainstore at GROWL/185/71/69 if you like to grab the skin for yourself (or any of the other endless fantasy colored skins in her store) and don’t miss to take a look at The Plastik’s blog for further info and skin color charts: http://thebeautifulmachine.com/2014/05/01/fantasy-faire-2014/
