!dM deviousMind “Redlight” NeonSigns **GACHA**

“The night brings different things…”

by !dM deviousMind

“Redlight” is our contribution to Jersey Shore’s “OMG – Oh My Gacha!” running October 1st to 31st. We felt instantly inspired by the poster for the event and the result leaves you with a colorful collection of fun and cheerful vintage style neon signs!

Each round of gameplay rewards you with a random neon sign, each of them effect scripted to turn randomized flickering on/off, or leave the sign permanently glowing or permanently off. Menu allows to set permissions to owner only, group, or public. In total there are 12 signs to collect; 8 common and 4 rare.


Click the mesh to access menu. All commons allow you to set light effects, **GOOD GIRL** sign lets you add particle sparkles on top of it. Also you can resize&stretch the sign through this menu! Please take note, scaling the mesh down will lower land impackt (prim count), making the signs larger will noticably increase prim counts!

All rare signs come with particle on/off option and color change menu to customize your pin up sign to your surrounding.

All signs allow to set permissions to use the menu: On first rezzing this is set to OWNER ONLY. Please change if you would like your landgroup to access or set to public. However, please beware setting it public also means people can resize the sign – this does influence your landimpact, so you may want to only let people you trust use the menu!


All meshes and textures are original designs and have been created by Chandra Meehan for (*chanimations and deviousMind. If you find any of our creations 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!

Groupgift: “Love&Peace – A Retro-Valentine’s”



“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):

• (*love&peace
• (*love&peace_groundsit

• (*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.


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.


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.

deviousMind: DiscoBalls!


!dM deviousMind

THE trademark of the 70s! And to bring this experience as well into your virtual home, we’ve went through the process of creating you the sparkeling light reflections in animated textures, combined with on-touch rotation and optional particle beams for an authentic 70s flair. The DiscoBall can be found along with our lava lamps and other psychedelic home decoration at the south end of deviousMind sim in it’s own building next to deviousPizza photospot!


The disco balls include an owner-only script to turn spinning on/off and add optional paticle beams to the ball. You acces this menu simply by clicking the ball. All menus run in Mono and include a time out to turn listening off when not in use.

Make sure the sim you are in allows for scripts to run!


For interesting mix&match, the set includes 8 different options:
• !dM DiscoBall long/S
• !dM DiscoBall short/S
• !dM DiscoBall long/M
• !dM DiscoBall short/M
• !dM DiscoBall long/L
• !dM DiscoBall short/L
• !dM DiscoBall long/XL
• !dM DiscoBall short/XL

These show slight differences in speed of turning and/or particle emission to imitate their real behavior differences according to size.

An optimal addition to those disco balls are our lava lamps, stop by deviousMind sim to see them live in action :-D


For correct display of the disco ball, you have to have ‘Animate Textures’ enabled – If this is not enabled, the texture is static and not sparkeling. ‘Animate Texture’ should be on by default but if it’s off, you need to do the following:

• Open ‘ADVANCED’ menu in the SL top menu bar by pressing [ctrl]+[alt]+[shift]+D,
it appears as the last menu item (unless it’s open already!)
• Then go into ‘RENDERING’ and make sure you see an X marking ‘Animate Textures’

Keep your eyes open for further livingRoom goodies in the future –
In the meantime, it’s all about disco!

deviousMind: LavaLamps!


!dM deviousMind

It’s one of these things – once you watched them for a while, you just WANT one… or more! And to bring this experience as well into your virtual home, we’ve went through the process of creating you those smooth running lava lamp fluid motions in animated textures, combined with glow and light for an authentic 70s flair. They can be found along with the other ‘psychedelic’ items that you might know already from our park area now in an own building at the south-end of the sim, right next to deviousPizza photospot.


!dM deviousMind offers you two classic styles of LavaLamps:


• !dM BulletLavaLamp – 4 PRIMS
The classic lava lamp, with a wide base getting thinner
towards the top – decorated with an additional colored
glow line at the top of the metal holder.
• !dM RocketLavaLamp – 6 PRIMS
Modern slim and tall lamps, shaped like a rocket with
smoothly rounded off caps. Let them take you to space!

Both lamp styles are available in 5 individually packed color options –
the fluid color is mentioned first, the color of the lava liquid is named second:


As well available an **ALL COLOR** pack which includes all of the ‘Bullet’ or ‘Rocket’ version, as well as the **MEGAPACK** containing all colors of both ‘Bullet’ AND ‘Rocket’ styles plus one bonus-color **PINK/GREEN**!
