Wow, its been a while since I posted here. I've been so busy with running the shop, shopping and my Fashion Labyrinth blog. So, anyways, someone was talking about a Christmas sim on the Fashion Emergency group, so I knew I had to go check it out. I love Christmas, snow, and Rezzable. Rezzable has done many of my favorite sims, including Toxic Garden and the Greenies Home. I had to go check out their Christmas sim.

Stratos Home Rezzable

Bats and I teleport in - and it doesn't seem to be Christmas-y at all. It was a race track. However, It had snow, and adorable little penguins, the fact of it being a race track didn't stop me from wanting to explore! I set my windlight settings to the "Blizzard" preset, and started snapping pictures.


Under the ground, there was an actual race track. It was indeed pretty cool, with falling ice and all. But, you also see some really cool things, like this mammoth that had fallen through some thin ice.

Underwater City

Also - don't forget to go under the racetrack to see the underwater city. This place was oddly beautiful, in a grungy, ghostlike way. Getting pictures underwater is a pain with all the fog and all. Luckily, I found out how to turn off the Fog rendering in the Client menu. Made exploring and picture taking a lot more enjoyable.

I have been waiting MONTHS for the return of Windlight - and its finally back! .... However, it isn't all I was hoping it would be. I downloaded it yesterday, but finally played with some presets and settings today. And, I was standing at home while I did this, so my pictures of the awesome Windlight is taken at Bats' and my SL residence. Hehe~


Yes, Windlight is amazingly pretty. I love it. However - my PC is over a year old, and apparently can not handle many of the features. When I turn on the pretty clouds, my SL performance goes downhill. It becomes very choppy, which is very annoying for me. The clouds are great for picture taking, because my computer can't handle them all the time.


Another thing - it messes up my facelight. For those who know me well, you know that is catastrophic for me. Anything that interferes with my facelight is trashed. Because of this reason alone, I don't think I will be using this viewer too often. Also - I also noticed that after moving the camera around, and reseting it - things refuse to rez. This morning, I was out shopping, zoomed in on something, and my avatar refused to rez when I reset my camera. I had to relog to be able to see myself again. O_o



Wow, its been a while! What have I been up to? Well, for starters, I've visited the awesome sim, TheAbyss! If you haven't been there, you are really missing out. This place is incredible, and kind of reminded me a little of "The World That Never Was" in the PS2 game, Kingdom Hearts II. Its very beautiful, in its surreal way. No picture can show the true beauty of this place, you should really check it out in world. SLURL: TheAbyss, The Abyss (96, 136, 237)

I've also learned a lot about animation overrides last night. I had purchased a Vista AO, and decided I didn't like the walks. So, I set out to find a new walk. I purchased a walk, put it in successfully, then decided I wasn't fond of the fly animations. I waited until Bats came on, and we spent a few hours looking for fly and landing animations. (Well, I was looking for fly ones, he was looking for ground sits).

I finally found some that looked halfway decent, but then decided I might as well update to the newest version of the Zhao II. Bad idea. I picked up a copy, and Bats did as well. So - we spent the rest of our night in utter confusion of how to program these things. We finally succeeded, just in time for us to test our animations and Bats to go to bed. *Sigh* Someone needs to make a "Zhao II for idiots" guide. Actually - I learned so much about what NOT to do last night, I could probably write that guide on the Zhao II.

Anyway. So, I woke up this morning, logged in at class, and decided I didn't like the fly or jumping animations this time. Yep. I went animation hunting again. I think I finally got my AO working how I want it this time... but - I can't seem to stop the face plant animation. You know... the one where you fall from a high distance and fall flat on your face? Yes, I hate that, but can't figure out how to make that go away. Ah well.
