New Airship: Air Pirate Zeppelin!

While the scripting of the Prometheus was affected by RL schedules, I finished in the meanwhile the Air Pirate Zeppelin, the big brother of the miniature version I made for the Sinister Steampunk Hunt.


Steampunk Air Pirate Zeppelin!

It doesn't only looks stunning (thanks to materials effects), it is also very easy to fly, has a very reasonable prim-count and offers plenty of positions for Avatars. Take a look at the samples - the model is my lovely Emma Sunshine:



















You can find the Air Pirate Zeppelin at the Marketplace or in my in-world store. I also have it on life-size-display at Mieville Twain.

And since Halloween is coming very soon, I also made a "Flying Dutchman" Mini:


Boo! Scary! A flying Dutchman Airship!

Cute, isn' it? Here is the Marketplace-link: Halloween Mini Zeppelin.

Happy Halloween! And I hope to have soon good news about the release of a certain other pretty large project. Fingers crossed that RL cooperates!

Edit:

I like Halloween Mini Zeppelin so much that I made a full-size version of it too - scary thing!


Ghost Pirate Zeppelin!

And here is the link to it!

Dark Fairy Tales: Some Impressions of the Rebuild Dark Wishes - Part 2

I just can't get enough of Dark Wishes! This time I selected a more gloomy sky-setting, which worked out even better than I did expect. The lighting of the place is just fantastic and a so very fitting to the Halloween-mood I'm into. I had so many magic moments!






































Speaking of Halloween. Dark Wishes will have its annual Halloween Costume-Party this weekend!

When? Saturday 25 Oct, 1 PM SLT

Where? Dark Wishes BDSM Playground

Who? DJ Arch Darwin and the usual lunatics like Talia, me and Emma!

See you there. Will be great fun!

Dark Fairy Tales: Some Impressions of the Rebuild Dark Wishes - Part 1

My friend Talia and her sub Kaylee did a wonderful job in redesigning her sim. I spent quite some time there to catch all the wonderful scenes I found there:


































I already had a second session on monday. I can't seem to get tired of the place!

Feel free to explore the place: Dark Wishes

Femdom Hunt V: The Countdown Is On!



Just a few days till this year's Femdom Hunt starts and again I'm quite excited we are on board again!
Antony from Z&A again does great lengths to ensure it is a smooth running, well organized event and even provides a tutorial for store-owners - nice job!

The hunt starts on Friday, Oct 17 and ends on Sunday, Nov 2. For further Information just hit the Hunt-Blog.

Again we have prepared something special. This we delve a bit in the sci-fi-cyberpunk-direction. Here is a little preview:


Sunshine Technology Plasma Cage.

The captive is secured by force-field bars which are filled with high energetic plasma. It is constantly changing its colours which creates a smooth and quite hypnotic effect. A real looker! And of course fully RLV-eabled. Goes without saying really.
The full-price variant will - amongst other things - feature advanced texture and glow options and fun RLV features we are currently developing.

We also have opened a new Sunshine Technology store at Dark Wishes:


Sunshine Technology @Dark Wishes.

You will surely remember the sim-walkthrough I wrote a while ago. Well I will write a new one soon: they had a quite extensive rebuild and it looks better than ever before - definitely worth some exploring.

New Date For The Sinister Steampunk Hunt: Saturday October 4!

Good news! Emedea sent a message today to the hunt merchants: The hunt can take off just as planned. With a short delay though: The hunt will start on October 4, at 8 am SL time. We also got the kit with the hunt-items and I did set up everything for the big day when the daring gift-hunters come!

Starting the hunt at a weekend is actually a pretty good idea. There are much more people online than weekdays, so what sounded like bad fortune first, might actually lead to a pretty glorious start. For further infos, just hit this sign at my store (the Sinister Steampunk Hunt-blog hasn't been updated yet)


Yes - its happening! Start: Saturday October 4!


Speaking of a glorious start: The building of the new air pirate zeppelin is now to about 90% finished. Just some fun bomb dropping features missing yet and the obligatory test-runs. It should be finished shortly and be ready to conquer the skies!


Air Pirates over Flotsam!


It already had its maiden-flight over Blake Sea, including visits at Hollywood Airport, Honah Lee, Flotsam and Crow's Nest, before landing at the New Horizons Airport. It was a perfectly smooth ride. Very pleasing, despite its massive size: its over 64 meters long! Land-impact wise the ship will be in the 50 Li region, which is a amazing number for such a huge build.


Captain Some!


Floating majestically over the rooftops.


Even the evil zombie-pirates nearby were pretty envious !


Oh and on that note: News about the Prometheus-Class! We will finish the scripting very soon (I know, I said this before, but real-life can delay things even for us ;-) ) and plan the release-date to be coming week!

No Hunt? No Panic!



It seems there are some issues with the Sinister Steampunk Hunt which is scheduled to start today. So far the merchants (including me) didn't receive the hunt items, nor any further note about a delay. Actually there wasn't any note after we got the merchants kit in mid-September. And it appears that the hunt's organizer, Emedea Morgenstern, didn't login since.

Lets hope the reason for this silence is something as trivial as a broken computer. Of course you always wonder (and worry, to be honest) when something like this happens. There is always a person behind the avatar.

Things like this are sadly beyond our control, but I don't want that my customers are affected by it. So I decided to keep up the advertisement for the hunt and put the gift out anyway. The hint where to find the gift is above the Sinister Steampunk Hunt sign, which looks like:

Happy gift hunting and fingers crossed that Emedea is doing well!

Starting October 1st: Sinister Steampunk Hunt 4!

My friend Zen did point me at the Sinister Steampunk Hunt not long ago. It obviously deals more with the dark side of steampunk, which seems 1) pretty suiting to my tastes and 2) in general  to be pretty fun, doesn't it?


The Sinister Steampunk Hunt 4. Definitely an event worth joining!


To have a suitng gift I decided to make a Zeppelin miniature from scratch - exclusively for the hunt.

May I introduce: the Air Pirate Zeppelin!


Of course I am not an air pirate: The picture is just promotional, really!



This one was really fun to build and happened pretty quickly too. A flyable, full-sized variant (some 60+ meters long) will follow soon!
