-Hanaya- http://hanaya.eregion.de Home and Garden Tue, 16 Sep 2014 14:58:23 +0000 en-US hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0 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.
