New!! Nesworth Prefab on special offer now!!

June 16, 2008

So, I was playing around designing as usual and thought i’d try my hand at making a multi role space. I realise that a lot of people have fairly diverse uses for their property in SL, and I wanted to make something that was versitile to fulfil their changing needs. So with this in mind, I give you.. The Nesworth!

The Nesworth house/prefab was designed with simplicity and elegance in mind. Its gentle use of textures create a space inside and out that will let your store products, art gallery pieces or homely furniture breath and express your creativity and style, instead of imposing its own. Suited for a variety of roles, the nesworth is as comfortable as a cosy costal retreat as it is in a busy city centre as a small store, club or resturant.

Inside, a simple approach to architecture and texturing has left an open, airy space, ready for your customisation, and customers. An elegant wooden floor provides a highlight to the piece, creating enough flair to be visually appealing without dominating the environment

The split level open plan layout has been designed with modern living in mind, whilst large windows all around let in lots of natural light and allow you to make the most of your location. Automatic and locking doors keep out those you dont want let in, while a reliable rezzing system makes it easy for even the newest of residents to enjoy the benefits of their purchase immediatley!

The Nesworth prefab is priced to move with an introductory price of L$1000 – a perfect starter home or business for the resident looking for modern style at an affordable price.

New Prefab : Rowen House

May 18, 2008

Hey folks!

I’ve been tinkering with this for ages, but seeing as I have some downtime between projects I thought I’d finish it off and try to get a few prefabs out there for you all to enjoy.

So, drum roll please, presenting SL’s newest prefab (for about the next 6 seconds) The Rowen House!

Rowen House!

As I mentioned, I’ve been tinkering with this for a while, so I had the extra time to put into some nicely detailed texture bakes, and to do unusual things I’ve not done before like the reverse slanted roof and the sliding door on the front. I included a nice patio area at the front of the house, so you can sit in the sun and bask in windlights glow with your friends

All in all she weighs in at about 190 prims, which is a little heavy, but with all the extra detail, I think its worth it. At any rate, the base and railings are seperate linked objects, so if you need to preen a few back its easy to do.

Inside, the modern open plan living space is split onto two levels, with a larger communal area to live and love and share with friends, while a cosier snug area up some stairs gives you a bit of personal space and a great view out of the elevated windows. This flows through into the bedroom or study, with high concrete walls providing privacy and a protected environment to make your own.

Overall I’m really happy with the way the build came out. The bedroom might look a little sparse with nothing in it, but with some nice pictures on the walls and some cosy furniture the place really comes alive, the contrast between light and heavy works really well. I wish my place in real-life was more like this, actually!

I had fun with the sliding doors, I’ve never used them on a prefab before..

So thats the Rowen House Prefab! I’ll be selling them for L$3500, and they come all nicely packaged up in SL’s easiest to use and most reliable auto-rezzer – so you’ll be up and partying in your new home quicker than you can say ‘missing image.

As usual I still don’t have a shop set up yet, but if anyone’s interested then drop me an IM in-world (Neil Robinson) and if you mention my blog, I’ll give you a whopping L$1000 discount! Hows that for an incentive!

Thats all folks, watch this space for more updates and special offers!!

Keep on primmin’

Roundhouse

January 28, 2008

So, this is the first thing I’ve built for a while that wasn’t a commercial development for another company. I did this originally as a club for a friend, but then realised that if I retextured it, it could make a pretty nice space for general living, conferencing, or just hanging out. Fast forward a few hours and presto – The Roundhouse, for your perusal.

So there you have it.. I’m planning to sell this via my new OnRez store, priced at L$3500.. it has a full auto-rezzer system so its super easy to put out on your land – just rez the box, click, choose rez and then move the box and the build will auto-reposition..

I tried to go for a mashup of two styles I’m really into at the moment – I’ve fallen in love recently with some of the bali/tiki/tropical style residential places I’ve seen some designers doing at the moment, so I guess it has a bit of that in there, but I didn’t want it to just be another ‘me too’ type creation, so I injected a bit of oriental simplicity with the textures and layout – for me it kinda has that zen like tranquility to it inside.

I think it’ll be good for anyone that wants something a little bit special as their ‘virtual home’ – the open plan layout creates a light, airy atmosphere, with plenty of space above (so no nasty camera problems), as well as making it ideal as a club, conference/meetup space, or just a cool skybox to have fun in. That central grass/water combo is just waiting for your favourite tree to create a fantastic indoor arboritum feel, or pave over it to give yourself access to the centre and chair your meetings in style!

Oh, one other thing, I don’t actually have any ‘virtual land’ to display this one on, so if anyone wants a free copy, give me a ding in-world (Neil Robinson) and I’ll hook you up with one, if you let me sell it from there too.

See you on the metaphysical side…

Hobbits!

January 23, 2008

One of my Super Favourite Designers Cory Edo has just released this lovely little hobbit cottage thingymabob. Its everything I love about Corys work, well detailed, really inventive and new, and her texture work has an element of simple purity to it that i’ve always really been a fan of and tried to get into my own work.

You have to see this thing really, to fully get how nicely put together it is. Which is why later on I’ll post a direct teleport link (forgot to get one first time around!)

Until then, you’ll have to make do with these pics 🙂
