Say it with me...


Named changed to protect the guilty.

[2011/11/05 18:27:32] Gin Farnsdale: Hi
[2011/11/05 18:27:49] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): hello, may I help you?
[2011/11/05 18:28:10] Gin Farnsdale: Where can I see your: Mystical Crystal light teal & Pan-Galactic Meteor Comet
[2011/11/05 18:28:23] Gin Farnsdale: I am in Isis Cove but I dont see them
[2011/11/05 18:28:29] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): okay one second
[2011/11/05 18:28:47] Gin Farnsdale: Oh I am seeing the Meteors now
[2011/11/05 18:29:06] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): yes I have the multicolored one out
[2011/11/05 18:29:53] Gin Farnsdale: Hi
[2011/11/05 18:30:02] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): let me get out that crystal for you
[2011/11/05 18:31:39] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): here you are
[2011/11/05 18:31:53] Gin Farnsdale: Nice idea about the meteors but, the frame rate dont let see them well
[2011/11/05 18:32:16] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): perhaps you need to adjust your graphics? It works fine for me, on any viewer
[2011/11/05 18:32:39] Gin Farnsdale: in some moments I lost some frames
[2011/11/05 18:33:17] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): it does dip below the surface, are you certain that you lost frames or that it maybe just dipped out of sight?
[2011/11/05 18:33:35] Gin Farnsdale: thank you to show me them...
[2011/11/05 18:33:42] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): you're very welcome
[2011/11/05 18:33:46] Gin Farnsdale: Have fun
[2011/11/05 18:33:51] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): you too :)
[2011/11/05 18:35:46] Gin Farnsdale: I have a lot of objects and Im very picky right now. ;-)
[2011/11/05 18:42:38] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): ahhh
[2011/11/05 18:44:26] Gin Farnsdale: Your objects are cute, but I was expecting a scintillation and some change of collors in your crystals.
[2011/11/05 18:44:57] Gin Farnsdale: And in your meteors somo movements like a meteors whith physics
[2011/11/05 18:45:11] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): actually it's not using physics at all
[2011/11/05 18:45:20] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): and there is a shift in color with the crystal
[2011/11/05 18:45:22] Gin Farnsdale: Yes I saw them
[2011/11/05 18:45:55] Gin Farnsdale: I am loking for a deeper effect.
[2011/11/05 18:46:06] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): I see
[2011/11/05 18:46:45] Gin Farnsdale: and your object are not the cheapers of the marketplace ;-)
[2011/11/05 18:47:14] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): no, I'm afraid not, they're hand-scripted
[2011/11/05 18:47:53] Gin Farnsdale: I paid premium price when I see what I want. ;-)
[2011/11/05 18:48:01] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): As is your right
[2011/11/05 18:49:04] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): most of my textures are hand made also...and you probably have no clue how much work goes into a piece
[2011/11/05 18:50:13] Gin Farnsdale: I had build some object I know how much hard work are involved. But we all made them for fun, and expect to sell several copies. ;-)
[2011/11/05 18:50:58] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): and I do, without complaint.
[2011/11/05 18:51:36] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): you'll also be hard-pressed to find the same sorts of objects having a copy option. All of mine do.
[2011/11/05 18:51:55] Gin Farnsdale: I preffer copy modified.
[2011/11/05 18:52:21] Gin Farnsdale: So I could add scripts, change size and so on
[2011/11/05 18:52:38] Gin Farnsdale: And also use temporal rezzers if I need
[2011/11/05 18:52:44] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): good luck on that, most objects of the kind you saw today aren't copy or modify, that's why they sell so cheap, you have to buy several copies.
[2011/11/05 18:53:54] Gin Farnsdale: I only in exceptional cases but an object that are not Copy Modify.
[2011/11/05 18:54:42] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): the crystals that I've seen, that are on a par with mine, are usually no copy.
[2011/11/05 18:54:58] Gin Farnsdale: On the other hand if I own a special object, I usually only use one Copy, because using more than one, will made it not excepcional.
[2011/11/05 18:55:11] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): *shrugs*
[2011/11/05 18:55:45] Gin Farnsdale: But Copy is mandatory, because we all know what some times happen to our inventory in SL
[2011/11/05 18:57:17] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): actually copy is not mandatory, some merchants don't care.
[2011/11/05 18:57:27] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): and yet others are afraid of copybotting.
[2011/11/05 18:57:37] Gin Farnsdale: For me to buy, yes.
[2011/11/05 18:57:42] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): that's nice.
[2011/11/05 18:58:12] Gin Farnsdale: ...if you want to visit one of my places...
[2011/11/05 18:58:19] Second Life: {redacted} has given you this landmark:
Do you want to keep it? "Block" will block any more offers or messages from {redacted}.
[2011/11/05 18:58:36] Gin Farnsdale: Valid only for 15 minutes... ;-(
[2011/11/05 18:58:41] Gin Farnsdale: ;-)
[2011/11/05 18:58:44] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): say what?
[2011/11/05 18:58:49] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): and why is that?
[2011/11/05 18:59:16] Gin Farnsdale: I send you an LM if you are curios to know for twhat I was thinking your meteors.
[2011/11/05 18:59:27] Gin Farnsdale: One of my places
[2011/11/05 18:59:29] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): ah. Well sorry I'm rather busy at the moment.
[2011/11/05 18:59:35] Gin Farnsdale: np
[2011/11/05 18:59:39] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): and that's not just an excuse
[2011/11/05 19:00:06] Gin Farnsdale: Have fun. Bye for now.
[2011/11/05 19:00:19] Marie Wonka (marie.resch): bye

Inworldz Contemplations

There are some threads over on OutOfWorld that discuss the direction that Inworldz is going. If you're curious about the discussions, sign up for a free account, then go to these two threads:

I didn't read them all the way through, mainly because they got me thinking about my own sims.

One thing that was brought up really made me stop and think. The part about people going whole-hog commercial like in second life. This, alone, explains why many good people have left Inworldz.

When we all started here, it was a Creator's Paradise, and it still is. However, has our yearning for goods we learned to love on SL caused us to go too far into the commercial direction and therefore have we forgotten our original goals?

I'm standing on Fantasia. I just took down the mall area I had built next to our club, and lowered the social area from what used to be the roof, to the ground. It costs nothing for anyone to use this area. There are chairs and other places to sit. The bar is chock full of drink sets - coffee, alcoholic drinks, even pizza. Feel free to use it, that's what it's there for.

I am also contemplating just where I am going to put in my mer area - if it's going to be one place, or several places. More on that later.

I'm having to sell off one of my sims, not because I can't rent it out, but because one of my cats was just diagnosed diabetic and I need the funds for his insulin and syringes. If it weren't for this, I'd sink the entire thing, and that would be my mer sim.

Instead I am looking at some of the land on my rental islands that has laid fallow for quite some time. I may sink it and make it a mer area. It's a fair chunk of one of my sims.

I want to get back to what I came to Inworldz for - creation. And not just for the sake of selling, but for the pure joy of it. I want to share what I create with others.

If you want to enjoy my sims, log into Inworldz and check out: Fantasia, Celtic Dreams, and Isle of Anu. Dryad is the one up for sale.

If you might be interested in something collaborative, especially with mer or fantasy, let me know.
