-Hanaya- http://hanaya.eregion.de Home and Garden Thu, 27 Nov 2014 10:44:17 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.1 -Hanaya- Iconic Glass House http://hanaya.eregion.de/2014/11/27/hanaya-iconic-glass-house/ http://hanaya.eregion.de/2014/11/27/hanaya-iconic-glass-house/#comments Thu, 27 Nov 2014 10:42:29 +0000 http://hanaya.eregion.de/?p=5044 -Hanaya- brings you an original mesh reconstruction of an iconic house –  single residential build with a land impact of only 16 PE, and provided size of 22 x 37 meters.

The build is a scale reproduction of a famous house built in the late 1940s. It is based on architectural plans that are publicly available from the United States Library of Congress. To learn about the house, please visit http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Farnsworth_House for a starting point.

-Hanaya- Iconic Glass House

The textures include materials, with the exception of glass surfaces. This will provides a 3 dimensional feel to the building elements when you have the Advanced Lighting Model and shadows enabled in your viewer.

The house contains a texture change menu for the window and door glass as illustrated in the following images. The inside and outside windows can be set separately, so if you wish, you can have complete privacy from outside (closed) and still be able to see outside when you are in the house.

-Hanaya- Iconic House (where to touch for menu)

To access the Texture Change menu, simply touch the front windows or door.

-Hanaya- Iconic House Menu Options

Diagramatic instructions with screen shots are provided in the package, along with an extra set of stairs. A version of the house with ground shadow is also provided for those who do not have shadows enabled in their viewer by default.

To help you envision how furniture might look in the house, a furnished model home is on display at -Hanaya- in-world store. Feel free to try everything out.

To purchase the -Hanaya- Iconic Glass House, either buy it in-world or on the Second Life Marketplace. A footprint demo, as well as information about how the house works is available free of charge.

-Hanaya- Muskoka Couples Cuddle Bed http://hanaya.eregion.de/2014/09/30/hanaya-muskoka-couples-cuddle-bed/ http://hanaya.eregion.de/2014/09/30/hanaya-muskoka-couples-cuddle-bed/#comments Tue, 30 Sep 2014 12:10:52 +0000 http://hanaya.eregion.de/?p=5018 Today, we have a brand new release for you – the Muskoka Couples Cuddle Bed with texture change menu and bedding that changes from a messy bed to a nice tidy one.

The bed has a land impact of 14 PE and has 28 animations – 14 synced couple animations and 14 single ones, which are all accessed via a menu (no poseballs). The bed also rezzes mesh props.

-Hanaya- Muskoka Couples Cuddle Bed

To pop up the Texture Change menu, touch the head board. The Texture Change menu has access control to allow you, group, or a list of specific avatars to be able to use it.

As well, the menu allows you to use the bed either in the Daytime mode (the duvet is made up and tidy). In Nightime mode, the duvet disappears and a messy blanket is shown instead.

-Hanaya- Muskoka Couples Cuddle Bed Colour Palette

There are two versions of the bed provided. One lets you select each piece of the wood and bedding separately to change the material. The other has 5 themes as in the image above.

-Hanaya- Muskoka Night Table

Matching night tables with texture change menu to match the bed are also available.

A display demo model is at -Hanaya- in-world store, and will be on the Second Life Marketplace shortly.

-Hanaya- Apple Bobbing Contest http://hanaya.eregion.de/2014/09/27/hanaya-apple-bobbing-contest/ http://hanaya.eregion.de/2014/09/27/hanaya-apple-bobbing-contest/#comments Fri, 26 Sep 2014 22:26:27 +0000 http://hanaya.eregion.de/?p=5008 With autumn in the air, thoughts turn to fall activities such as raking and collecting leaves, carving gourds and pumpkins and decorating our homes and gardens.

I love garden decor – but I really really get excited when the decor is not just a static thing, when it is fun and has a purpose too. That is why the -Hanaya- team got together to bring you the Apple Bobbing Contest. No, you don’t win anything, other than bragging rights.

Watch our 2.5 minute video to see it in action in HD on YouTube.

-Hanaya- Apple Bobbing Contest FOR SALE

How it works:

The custom script in the piece allows for 2 avatar to sit on the apple barrel, and compete to see who will get the most apples first.

The first avatar sits, and waits for a second person to join. Once both are sitting, they will start to bob for apples. The time it takes to grab an apple is random. And who gets more apples is random as well – there is no skill, nor is there any prize, other than your right to do a victory dance.

The first avatar to get three apples wins the contest. The loser has a bit of a tantrum,  the winner celebrates and then both avatars are unseated. And the next contest can begin!

Now available for purchase at -Hanaya- inworld store, and on the Second Life Marketplace. Unless you are the member of one of our groups, in which case you can get it from notices as a gift from us to you :-)

Lessons Learned @ Home and Garden Expo http://hanaya.eregion.de/2014/09/16/lessons-learned-home-and-garden-expo/ http://hanaya.eregion.de/2014/09/16/lessons-learned-home-and-garden-expo/#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 09:39:07 +0000 http://hanaya.eregion.de/?p=4975 As some of you know I was planning to be in this year’s Second Life Home and Garden Expo.

And I was really looking forward to it too. Not just because I like making the kind of things that will be on sale there, but also because it benefits a cause that I am passionate about, since I am a cancer survivor.

To make it short; I won’t be there.

Here’s why:

I had bought some full perm mesh farm animals from a store called Just Animals on the Second Life Marketplace and I had used them in a product which was to be part of the Gatcha @ Expo program to benefit Relay for Life. It turns out that it is possible that the original source of these full perm meshes may be a service called Turbosquid, where full perm meshes are sold for dollars.

The first I heard of Turbosquid, is when a coalesced object of more than 1300 prims was returned to my Lost and Found folder, immediately followed by being ejected and banned from the Expo sims without notice.

I was really upset – who wouldn’t be. But after a sleepless night, I am trying to look on the positive side of this thing. And these are the important points to me arising from the mess.

  1. I am glad that the organizers of the Expo are diligent about potential IP theft. I wish more event organizers were as thorough.
  2. I will no longer buy full perm meshes on the Second Life Marketplace or at any in-world store. Who has the time to do the research to see if the creator of the full perm mesh did not buy it from Turbosquid or something of that sort.
  3. And last, and most important to me, is that I will buckle down and devote time to learning 3D modelling properly. It’s long overdue.

So I will be taking time off from -Hanaya- to go back to 3D modelling school.

Building in-world and using mesh exporting tools like I have been doing is just not good enough.

So …

The -Hanaya- Subscribe-o-matic group and in-world store groups will be closed at the end of September.  I will be scaling down the in-world store in the next few weeks – likely turn it into a little park with only a handfull of my products that I am really proud of.

-Hanaya- Home and Garden Expo

I took this snap of my store at Home Expo 6 before my stuff got returned.
It was pretty :(

Inntertubes and Floaties 2048

Are there benefits to use up a group slot you ask? There is normally a really cute gift at the beginning of each month, as well as a discount on purchases at -Hanaya- in-world store. This month’s gift are arm floaties and innertubes for all your summer fun.

-Hanaya- Arm Floaties [mesh]

-Hanaya- Arm Floaties [mesh]

The Arm Floaties are a wearable mesh accessory that include an upright floating animation, which are also scripted to support you in Linden water to keep your head and shoulders out of the water – like they do in real life. And they include a removable re-sizer to ensure a good fit.

-Hanaya- Innertubes for Singles + Couples

-Hanaya- Innertubes for Singles + Couples [mesh]

There are innertubes for single avatars, as well as for a couple. And they are provided in 3 scripted versions. One is for prim water, and two are for LINDEN water. Drop them out of your inventory onto Linden water and they will bob up or sink down and find their own perfect height in the water. Then hop on and either drift gently with the wind, or rotate a little bit in place.

In-world VIP group joiner free august

So join the group and either grab the gift from group notices, or visit us in-world and get it. Please make sure you activate your group first!

And have a fun summer weekend!

Just finished the set up of the -Hanaya- store at Rhapsody and managed to steal some time to walk around the whole build. You guys are going to be so amazed! The build by
RubyStarlight Writer and Annette Voight is awesome. From the laser light show in Electronic, the zippered store fronts in Punk, and the NYC street scene in Jazz – you will be amazed.

I hope you stop by the -Hanaya- booth (one of the stores at the landing point), and grab our visitor gift. It is a classic mesh guitar with both standing and sitting ‘play guitar’ animations. Versions sized for both guys and girls are included. And it plays a cute instrumental.
