** Dunes ** Cherry 2011 Shape is Out!

Hello,

I’ve updated the first shape of the store to fit better 2011 tastes.

Dunes Cherry Shape 2011

Cherry is a young and joyful girl who likes to party and hang out with friends. She still has the roundness of late teenage years though she is definately a woman with appealing curves. Her face with pouty lips and doe eyes show her natural softness.

There are 4 body sizes included in the package
Petite
Medium
Glamazone (tall)
Runway
+ system skirts versions.

The shapes come with a style card and a bald base if you want to look exactly like the model.

The shapes are mod, copy, no transfer. Please, make sure to try a demo first, free demos are available at the ** Dunes ** Mainstore store.

The shape is also avalaible on the Marketplace.

Bye bye,

Tana

Kirstens or Beta?

Hello,

At Cheesecake

A new Second Life Beta viewer – version 2.6 was released on 21rst March. I won’t go into details about what’s new, it is mainly bug fixes and the option to choose between basic and advanced version of the viewer to help new residents to navigate faster. I was curious to see if I would still crash as much while taking pictures. Unfortunately, the answer is yes. Lately, I’ve been using the Kirstens Viewer S21 (6) as it allows for easy shadows, depth of field and not crashing at every single try at snapshotting. But unfortunately, I am not so happy with the quality of the pictures, mainly the anti-aliasing is better with the official beta. I am also seeing problems with alphas which tickle me.

I am probably too picky with Kirstens as I take snapshots with a 4000×5000 pixels resolution in png. When I downsize, it often removes the flaws and in the end, noone notices or care… but i know it is there. So, after 2 hours of tries, crashes, and some hair pulls, i’ve come to some compromise with beta: lower resolution, lower anti-aliasing and I keep the same quality as with Kirstens, except that Beta has animation texture on and Kirstens will lag on me to being unable to move at all.

I’ll have some more tries in the coming days, though being the lazy ass I am, I am likely to go back to Kirstens for easy pictures. I so wished I could push the official beta viewer as much as I am Kirstens.

Jack

The night was coming to an end. She had made some money at the club, dancing for a living.

She had known better times, when dancing did not have to finish naked, until she had fallen in love with that guy… Now is time to go back to her small appartment. A man is following her. She had noticed him in the smoky room, something special about him, she cannot tell, something weird. He was not looking at her the way the other men did. And that made her uncomfortable.

Jack 3

Dawn is here already, the beginning of a new day. She changes direction, tries to avoid him but he starts walking behind her, following her…

Jack 2

… too late, she has met Jack.

Sylvan

Hello,

Sylvan 12

After teasing us for months with previews of her new skin, Ryker Beck from Exodi is finaly about to release Sylvan. She was kind enough to offer me a blogger pack, sorry, I have to rephrase, a MEGA fatpack, with all the skintones, all the different make-up (15 of them) options and all the eyebrows (Dark, light, red), with or without freckles and cleavage enhancer. As a side rant… gah, I was planning on lowering my inventory count. Major failure!

Sylvan 9

The skin comes the old way, without tons of tattoo layers options. Of course, when you’re used to the 2.0 viewer the tattoo layers are awesome, I personnally and selfishly prefer tatoo layers but it nice to see a designer is also thinking about people who don’t want to move to 2.0 or people who just don’t care about playing with layers.

I have to say there is something special about this new face, she’s got temper, a trait I often miss in a lot of skins. This might annoy some of you, as the contrasts and shadows of Sylvan are designing a face which is a bit harder than what we are used to see. At the same time, that is what I like about it!

As a final note, I have to give a little warning about my pictures. They are post-processed, because I like it that way. So, if you want to see the “real” Sylvan you will have to go and demo it by yourself on the 11th of March at the Exodi mainstore.

New WoE and Exodi Sim

Hello,

New WoE & Exodi Sim

It is time to update your landmarks as Exodi and WoE have moved to a new sim! The new western desert decor is just fabulous, I am sure many will like it. Yesterday, Ryker Beck spoiled us again for Fifty Linden Friday with a special edition of the soon to be released Sylvan skin which is due on March 11th. Another great FLF offer yesterday was the jewelry set from League.

You’ve seen them everywhere already but the new hair textures with darker roots from LeLutka are simply to “dye” for. (yeah, I know, easy one, I just couldn’t resist)
