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

“The night brings different things…”


======
“Redlight”
**NEON SIGN GACHA**
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.

MENU:
——-

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!

TEXTURES & MESHES:

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!

UPDATE: (*chanimations “PassionParlor” Photostage

(*chanimations RELEASE NOTES


======
UPDATE 1.1 to 1.5
March 26, 2013

-PassionParlor Photostage-
======

Due to a custom request we ended up creating a modified version of the original stage with the 2 alcoves on the backwall mirrored as well to the wall on the entering side – so here’s your added goodie of 4-stripping-poles-alcoves galore ;D

Also added an option to the screen to the side room which allows to change color as well as set different levels of transparency for the screen.

To read up on all the content and more fancy pictures please look here (I updated the old blog post already to reflect the changes).

Hope you enjoy these updates! Happy Easter!

 

UPDATED: (*chanimations “La Burlesque” Photostage!

The important Stuff:
———–

UPDATE for (*chanimations “La Burlesque” photostage is finished since last night with a few new textures, new menu options, some improvements for practical showtime use, and with urgently needed updated curtains! The above picture was taken with SL shadows, so there’s no new texture on the spotlights or any like that. What you see is the light falling through the glass ceiling :D

Now this is where I need your help:

Unfortunately it turns out now, that there’s trouble with the automated update script of version 2.0!

I distributed all purchases since October 2011 manually through marketplace and inworld - if you do have version 2.0 of the stage and the update did not reach you, please get in touch with me! (Inworld, comment to the blog post, Flickr mail, whatever else you can think of). For those who have the photostage since version 1.0, please rezz a copy of the old stage to receive the automated update or get in touch with me :)

Thank you very much in advance!

UPDATE 2.0 to 2.5
January 18, 2013

Added more textures and sculpted curtains
======

For the selections of seasons, you’ll find now 2 shades for Valentine’s Day and one Mardi Gras texture added. Also, not quite seasonal but pretty useful, a black-and-red striped wallpaper if you’re going for more of a BDSM theme in your building ;)

Due to request, we also filled up the dead space above stage and opened up the front more to give better view on what’s happening on stage. For functionality, you also have the backsides of curtain and screen see through, so you have a good idea of what’s happening in front of the curtain while you wait for your show to start.

The Runway in front of stage is added in separate linkset now, so you can take it out if you don’t want to use it :)

To go with more livelyness, we also replaced were the old curtains. Instead of normal squared prims are sculpties now, to give it an overall more airy feel and pick up the curves of the building better. Unfortunately with this change, the primcount raises slightly (5 PRIMS) – The new stats for counts are as follows:

“La Burlesque” Photostage is build on a basis of 40x40m, and with the dome approx. 20m height – it is packed in a rez-faux box (9 PRIMS) and rezzes in five parts:

• main building with 42 PRIMS,
• runway for stage with 8 PRIMS (optional),
• frontStairs to lead up to the runway with 3 PRIMS (optional),
• all special effects and lights 30 PRIMS and
• balcony at the entrance with 4 PRIMS (optional),
———————————–
for a grand total of 87 PRIMS.
(+9 PRIMS rez-faux package at first rezz)

The stage menu was improved to include an option that will allow you to fade the front curtain in and out – this will come especially handy when you’re dealing with a big event and possible lag spikes that cause the animated curtain to act up or not function properly. With the new fade option you won’t need to worry anymore and can keep your show running without trouble :)

If you know anybody else who uses “La Burlesque”, please inform them about this update and to contact me if there’s trouble with getting their upgraded version :)

StageSet: (*chanimations “O Happy Day!”

“A Cream come true… ”

-O Happy Day!-
stageSet
August 2012
======

(*chanimations’ stageSets are our new photography and performance scenes and pretty much exactly what it sounds like: scenery sets when you’re on stage :) Each pack contains two versions – one fit for “La Burlesque” photoStage (“LB fit”) with the exact measures to fit into the stage, and a 2nd version geared more towards a photo studio use with a lot more floor and walls on an approximate 17×19.5m footprint for a larger choice of photography angles. The stage version is set to phantom so you can walk into the scene from behind stage before curtain opens.

“O Happy Day!” is one of my performance sets from July 2012 and (at least for this show) geared towards a white wedding theme set up as a rich layer cake stage with candles, stars, white satin curtains, rich wallpaper, and of course the mandatory release of hundreds of doves in particle form. As additional special effects, it has the options to fade stage-cake and background stars in or out.

The release has been expanded with baloon particles as well in case you’re going for a more “Happy Birthday!” related cake performance or photo theme ;) As you see… the possibilities are endless :D

Please take note: stageSets are scenes without any poses – think of it as 3d photo background!
OhappyDay_polaroidCollage_700
If you’re looking for matching props with poses, have a look at (*chanimations fruitFetish! series [specially the surprise cake - it's a perfect fit for the stage-cake platform] – or of course any of our other sets or any other creator if you’re not rezzing the cake. :)

The set is dedicated to Lucca and by default (with the way this turned out) it’s also a kinda-tribute to “our sim’s cupcake kitty” Elise! (You find her store ‘Cupcakes & Poetry’ in deviousMind’s bakery building) And a full cream-come-true layer cake expansion to our fruitFetish “SurpriseCake” set. Admit it, you’ve always wanted to be the icing on the cake! So you see, there is always an excuse for cake :D

As with everything scripted: Make sure you are in a sim that allows for scripts to run!

(*chanimations’ stageSets are our new photography and performance scenes and pretty much exactly what it sounds like: scenery sets for on stage :) Each pack contains two versions – one fit for “La Burlesque” photoStage (“LB fit”) with the exact measures to fit into the stage, and a 2nd version geared more towards a photo studio use with a lot more floor and walls on a 17×19.5m footprint for a larger choice of photography angles. The stage version is set to phantom so you can walk into the scene from behind stage before durtain opens.

Please take note: stageSets are scenes only without any poses!

If you’re looking for matching props with poses, have a look at (*chanimations “PreciousMoments” (vault with poses) or FetishCabaret SET 30 “RetroGlam” (chaise with gramaphone) – or many of our other sets which will fit with the stage style. :)

"ChicagoUnderground" - Click for large size!

-ChicagoUnderground- has it’s origins from deviousMind’s “The Underground” bar, built by Lucca when we created the initial sim structure in 2009. It’s been one of these things that most people didn’t discover right away – or still haven’t even – kinda like you would picture the classy spot for dirty business with it’s charming back office, huge money vault, and marble desk. Needless to say, it’s been used for so many photos during the course of the years that it’s about time to share a version of our sim history with everybody. :)


The walls are color scripted and allow the following color choices:

• red-brown,
• sand-gold,
• teal-green,
• magenta-red.

As with everything scripted: Make sure you are in a sim that allows for scripts to run!

TEASER: “GoodTimes…”

Somethings coming…

Just a little teaser cause I’ve been so busy lately with a few new things coming up at (*chanimations photography props and poses. :) The posters are some of the wall decoration in an upcoming stageSet, and there’s a new pose-series (meaning, a new theme of future pose sets) waiting for you as well :)

Stay tuned!!

The stage version is set to phantom so you can walk into the scene from behind stage before durtain opens.

-NeonLights- has a special meaning to me, as it’s been the set I made for the first live performance me and a friend were doing in SL burlesque shows – and I’m finally releasing these! So it shouldn’t be surprising that, as I’ve built more sets for the cabaret shows, there will be more and more goodies of this new series ahead of you :)

The walls and screens are individually color scripted and allow to
mix-and-match the following colors:

• black,
