It is December, one of my favourite months of the year. So let me talk about Christmas trees, since the primary reason for this post is just that. A brand new release from -Hanaya- to add to the thousands of pixel trees out there on the grid. But I happen to think this one is just a little bit special. Want to know why?
First, the new -Hanaya- Traditional Christmas Tree comes in 3 sizes to fit into most homes. And the best part is that those of you who are in the -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles in-world group get the littlest one as this month’s group gift. Woo!
Second, all three sizes of the tree come in 2 rez options – normal rez that takes up lots of prims, and a temp rezzer version with a custom-written, low lag script, which only uses 1 prim on your parcel.
So, to describe the trees – they are sculpted pine trees with gorgeous glass ornaments of many shapes and colours. I also made a string of flashing lights and some garlands, and topped the whole thing with a shiny blown glass tree top. The tree sits in a wood tree stand and has a built-in shadow. All three sizes include a ‘Trim the Tree’ animation and give you and your friends or customers a box of ornaments to wear. A bare tree in a tree stand is also included in all three sizes, in case you want to hold off putting out the decorated one until it is closer to Christmas – like me.
-Hanaya- Traditional Christmas Tree
The largest of the trees (image above) is 5.5 meters and includes a separate ladder with the ‘Trim the Tree’ animation and ornament box giver, so that you can get ornaments on the upper part of the tree. The Traditional Christmas Tree also has more ornaments like lighted candles and pewter bird ornaments, which are not included in the small version or the group gift version. That is me and our store tweeny Hana posing for the vendor pic 🙂
-Hanaya- Small Traditional Christmas Tree
The small version of our Traditional Christmas Tree is 4.5 meters high – sure to fit a standard-sized SL home, which usually have ceilings that are at least 5 meters high. The ornament giver and ‘Trim the Tree’ animation are included.
-Hanaya- December 2011 In-World Group Gift
The littlest of our traditional Christmas trees is 3 meters high, and is our gift to our customers that are part of the -Hanaya- Yummy Collectibles in-world group. The tree includes the ‘Trim the Tree’ animation and gives the ornament box like the 2 ‘for purchase’ versions.
-Hanaya- December 2011 Subscribo Gift
The box of Christmas decorations which can be used to trim the Traditional Christmas Tree is a gift to our customers who are part of the -Hanaya- Subscribe-O-Matic Newsgroup.
We hope that you will find room in your Second Life home for one of our Traditional Christmas Trees – one will be on display in our in-world store during the month of December. Or if you are feeling stressed and lazy, the purchase versions will be available on the Second Life Marketplace in the next few days.
