  • Gachas Going Bye-Bye



    This is probably the biggest SL news in almost a decade.  Gachas will no longer be legal on the grid as of September 1. You can read the new Second Life official gacha policy here. 

    Now I of course have lots of thoughts on this, so many that it got me writing  a brief-for-me comment on the forums which I have been avoiding of late.  So let's start off with what "I" thought was the most import part of the discussion (you can see the long long long forum post here). 




    From my comment on the forums. (Sorry I can't make this text smaller ^^ ) :


    So this thread is WAY too long and I will put my personal thoughts "elsewhere",

    *********BUT BUT BUT **********

     

    This really needs to be said and in all the post I read (not all as it made me tired) I didn't see this comment.


    While Linden Lab may give you the right to resell your no-copy gacha items as regular items ----- IF you were in some of the top gacha events, you (as a creator) agreed to NEVER SELL THEM ANY OTHER WAY BUT GACHAS.

    Shall I repeat? Nope. You got the idea.


    So that mean for those of us that are honest and keep our word (I have LOTS of gachas made in the past) those items will be discontinued. There is no other way to comply. SOME events let you sell items as both no-copy gachas and fatpacks in the same event. So those fatpacks could still be sold of course.


    BUT (again that BUT thing) -- EVEN if you only made a gacha set for YOUR store and never sold it as a fatpack --- you pretty much PROMISED your customers that it would always "just" be in gacha form. That is how the gacha resellers stay in business.


    Heading off to type elsewhere.


    As the original official blog post states there will SOON (tm) be a FAQ page with questions answered but honestly I didn't have any. I thought the announcement was quiet clear. 

    Personally I am both happy and sad about the decision.   

    I am sad because I know a lot of events and creators will close or at least walk away for awhile. If you have been around during any other major decisions that shook the grid, you know the outcome of these things.  I realize a lot of creators make a ton of money off of their gacha sets -- I certainly did. It is mind-boggling; and that in itself is a reason for sadness of another type. That money came from real people.  I watched one gal play a machine of mine at an event for thousands of lindens just trying to get a lamp she loved. Eventually I wrote her (I have show inworld sales turned on) and asked her what she was after. I told her she had played enough and sent her the lamp.   

    As a consumer I have never loved gachas -- mostly because they are no-copy and fairly easily lost in our boxing ring matches with the database.  I am HOPING that some of the outstanding skills that our gachas creators use on their sets will translate over to some more creative and better REGULAR products, which most of us have noted and commented on have been steadily going downhilll (overall) for more than a year or two. 

    So two conflicting feelings, both relevant to me anyway. 

    On a store owner level I will be heading over to my gacha building and marking down my gachas 60 percent  along with "some" fatpacks.  They have had a good run and I am not particularly sad to see them go.  That area could use a really pretty park come September.   

    May we live in interesting times ---

  • Wicca’s Originals @ Uber // July 2021

    Wicca’s Originals @ Uber // July 25th – August 22nd

    The latest style-blending fashion by Wicca’s Originals is the Lena Top. Drawing inspiration from renaissance blouses and corsets, the Lena Top puts a modern spin on it by trimming the traditional cut down to a crop top. The two-part top incorporates a flattering, low, horizontal cut short sleeved blouse with a short, under-bust corset to lift the bust and create a tantalizing shelf of feminine flesh. The cleavage is teased with the inclusion of a mini-harness, which binds a choker vertically to a strap worn around the waist, hinting at one’s darker desires for power play. This clever merger of styles creates an genuine new look, and the blouse can be optionally removed. The Lena Top can be customized between 10 color options on the different material layers and metals, fitted for Maitreya, Maitreya Petite, Maitreya Flat, Legacy (F), and Legacy Perky bodies.

  • New In

    DeuxLooks - new in

    New in late Summer looks: an easy bohemian hair from ELIKATIRA (!!!!!!) and a mod midi from COCO. I love this whole look. IMO it’s perfect for August, which is my favorite month out of the whole year! The nights get cooler but Summer is still in effect. BTW, I am gearing up for 2 weeks of vacation IRL!

    DeuxLooks - new in
    Elika Returns!

    Were you as excited as I was seeing that Elika is back? All new textures, styles and a sleek new HUD. You get all style, accessory and color options in one HUD for $350L. None of this ‘you can’t change the hairband color without the Deluxe HUD nonsense.’ And, the new master HUD is absolutely gorgeous; a simple and beautiful representation of Elika’s prolific brand in Second Life.

    BTW, don’t mind the fact that you can see my avatar’s underwear in this pose. Much to my horror, I did something very similar recently IRL – only noticing after checking myself in the office restroom mirror. Good grief. Fail.

    Enjoy your week!

    xoxo

  • Working Hard – Hardly Working


    When I quit processing credits to Paypal (I wasn't happy with the small print in the  Tilia TOS and US Privacy Policy) I pretty much stopped creating for my store.  One release this year and I made the house for myself, a recreation of my first mesh house almost ten years ago. And yep, I am a better mesher then when I started -- thank goodness. 

    But creating is pretty much a part of who I am in all worlds, so just STOPPING was not an option.  To that end I have been keeping up my skillset in Blender and other programs by working on things that I need and can't find.   These will all be Advent gifts this winter.  I have three boxes left to fill and most of the completed days are stuffed full of items.  So expect one hellava Advent when December comes around.  

    And here's the rest of the story ---

    A recent gacha event had a very cute bench made from  cinderblocks and boards.  I liked it but there were also a ton of things in the gacha that I DIDN'T want so playing wasn't in the cards. In the end  and a couple of months later I decided to make my own bench.  I turned out quite differently of course and I am happy with my rendition.  I plunked it down in the construction area of my store sim but it needed more clutter.  I wanted an old fashioned construction worker's lunch pail.  

    Long story cut short -- I didn't find one. I did get a mention that a thermos might be good, and ended up making that and it looks great. And I was also gifted this backdrop. It is simple but lots of fun and low land impact as much of what you see is a sharp graphic and not actual mesh.   


     A great value in a hard hat became part of the story also.

  • Highwood Lake Cabin

    Highwood Lake Cabin is, as the name suggests, a wooden house on water... on the lake, river or sea. Of course, it can also be placed on land. It's a house on high stilts, so you can also make use of the area beneath the house for storing your boat if you're on water.
     
    It's also a double-storey house with a verandah. Inside is all open concept with floor to ceiling windows for the feeling of spaciousness. I also did it to cut down on the land impact:)

    Highwood Lake Cabin is only 35LI and has an 18x12 base area. It is copy, mod, no transfer and partial mesh. It is UNFURNISHED. The furnitures in the pictures are mostly from Bazar and the speedboat is a freebie on the marketplace.

    I have made a rezzer for the house and one without.

    Highwood Lake Cabin is available for 90L on the Marketplace.

  • Misery Made Beautiful




    Make me a witness
    Take me out
    Out of darkness
    Out of doubt
    I won't weigh you down
    With good intention
    Won't make fire out of clay
    Or other inventions
    Will we burn in heaven
    Like we do down here?
    Will the change come while we're waiting?
    Everyone is waiting
    And when we're done
    Soul searching
    And we carried the weight
    And died for a cause
    Is misery made beautiful
    Right before our eyes
    Mercy will be revealed
    Or blind us where we stand
    Will we burn in heaven
    Like we do down here
    Will the change come while we're waiting?
    Everyone is waiting
    Will we burn in heaven
    Like we do down here?
    Will the change come while we're waiting?
    Everyone is waiting.
