Introducing my first foray into non-horse territory (sort of) — the Jinx Centaur! I have to admit I wasn’t super into centaurs at first, but the Jinx version grew on me and now I’m wearing it everywhere haha 🙂 I especially appreciate it using 2 AOs (didn’t even know you could do that), so upper body movements are still unique.
Lunistice is now on Facebook! I held off making a SL presence there for a while, since I’d heard about other avatars getting their profiles deleted … but that doesn’t apply to pages! I also like that it can stay completely separate from your RL profile, and your RL friends aren’t spammed with posts in their news feed (unless they actually “like” the page). I plan to keep it updated as well!
In the new year I’ve decided to start making textures for the Teegle Horse as well as Water Horse! These will work with both the Teegle avatar and the new animesh Teeglepet that’s coming out soon.
I plan to convert my most popular items over to Teegle (along with any other requests), starting with my Andromeda Body Coat & Hooves. These are now available in-world and on the marketplace! See the preview below, and then come visit/see a demo at my brand new shop on the Teegle sim 🙂
Update: The Frozen Body Coat & Hooves below are also available!
Process-wise, the UV map for Teegle is different than Water Horse (of course), so it takes a bit of finagling & reworking. But no eyelid or HUD textures to worry about, and the horse comes with a built-in shine slider, so you don’t need to create a specular layer.
The applier creation steps are also a 180 from WH — no copying UUIDs and editing code (mostly dragging scripts into a cube & following their instructions). The only negative I’ve run into is the applier scripts don’t always function if I need to fix something after hitting the “finish” button.
Anyway, I love the expressiveness of the Teegle and its emotions & animations, and am looking forward to the Teeglepet release. I just wish the gait sounds were in sync with the hooves hitting the ground!
For the foreseeable future, please follow me on Flickr for all my texture updates and new releases! With the recent news about Flickr accounts, I’ve decided to upgrade to Pro and post the majority of my product-related content there moving forward. I’ve also taken the recommended steps to ensure my account follows Flickr’s guidelines for digital/virtual world images.
Note: Flickr is running a 30% off promotion for all free accounts that upgrade to their annual plan by November 30, 2018 (this is what I used).
That said, I will still keep and use this blog for longer posts … or those without an accompanying picture.
For the month of October, I’m participating in the Quest Fur Cover hunt at my main store! The hunt prize is a new body coat titled Tangled Branches, and this time there may or may not be decoys 🙂 I made this one at the same time as the Tangled Flames coat for the Twisted hunt, but with more pastels and less of an inferno. See the complete list of merchant prizes and hints here, and start by visiting store #0!
My hint is: “Oh keeper of magic and rainbows, where are you?”
