Closing Our Doors, but Leaving the Window Open


We have had the pleasure of sharing our creations in Second Life for a very long time, but it's time to change how we do that just a little bit. While it's a privilege to have a very large canvas to create on, it's also a big expense. We haven't been able to spend much time inworld at all this past year, with first life priorities taking the front seat. We sold our 5 sims and opened up a smaller presence on the mainland grid, but now it's time to close that too.

We aren't leaving. We love being able to create! However, since we are not able to do this very often at the moment, we'll be closing our inworld shops, but leaving our shops on Marketplace open to continue to share current releases, and any new goodies we are inspired to conjure up in the months ahead.

Not everything is available on Marketplace, nor will it be due to the constraints on our time, so you might want to take a peek in the inworld shops before we close them down later this week to snap up things like seasonal items, and the 75% off sale we've been running in our jewelry and landscaping departments.

We closed our shop on the InWorldz grid in December, so you'll no longer find our items available for sale there.

Our Marketplace web site shops will continue to be available at:

We'd like to tell you now just a little bit about what lies ahead ...

NEW POSE SYSTEM ON BOARD


We spent a number of months completely overhauling our basic pose system to make it more reliable, and to offer some robust new features that even landlords will love. If you are furnishing rental homes you'll appreciate the new system of "Add-Ons" and "Plug-ins" that not only allow you to dump unnecessary scripts once cosmetic changes are made, but also give your tenants a level of control over rezzables and other features without having to give them modify permissions on your items.

We hope you'll find the new system easier to use when it comes to both customizing animations, and also for tucking in new themed add-on packs as we release them.

This new system is available in the 2 new trees. We will also be updating a handful of existing furnishings to include this as a free update in the months ahead. Watch for an update to the Wingback Chairs and other Satis House collection features, with a bumper crop of new options.

OUR MAIN SHOP AS A PREFAB


On moving to the mainland we completely retooled our main shop to fit a smaller format. We frequently receive requests from people who wish to buy the building itself to use for their own shop. We will be making this available soon as a retail-ready prefab kit, along with the basic fixtures (including display counters, trees, hanging ivy and twinkle lights, stages and industrial lighting).

THE FIN DE SIECLE AETHER SALON


People have been asking about the Gilt and White French salon on display just past our preview cottages. This will be available for sale shortly. (People who currently own the Patisserie merchant kits will be receiving this free of charge).

Watch our blog for pictures and more information on this old world beauty very soon!

Immortalis crafted a very special and very versatile new country roads kit, designed to upgrade our original Empress and Hierophant sim. We will be making this available for sale shortly, including curved pieces, and a variety of surfaces along with winter snow.

PATISSERIE MERCHANTS KIT UPDATE AND RETAIL RELEASE


A limited number of patisserie kits were made available in beta. Updates to these kits will be sent out to the owners shortly, along with new vendor system and updated café tables and chairs.

The retail version of this set will also be made available to the general public later this spring. This includes the Patisserie building, café tables and chairs, display fixtures, curtains, terrace and basic landscaping, lights, and several starter kits containing display samples of many of the items for sale in the shop. People who purchase the kit will also get reseller vendors offering 40% of the profit from each sale.

You can still see a preview of the shop inworld until we close down later next week:

WHERE THE #$@! DID THE ANIMATIONS AND POSES GO???


When Linden Lab converted Marketplace fully to Direct Delivery, it was not without it's bugs. Unfortunately one of those bugs has rendered every single one of our pose and animation packs inactive, with no way to correct this. We have been working with them to get this function restored for quite some time, and recently received word that our bug report has finally been triaged. We hope to be able to make these items available for sale again soon. (As a rule, we're a pretty big fan of Direct Delivery. It rocks! Now if we can just get the rest of our items visible again, we'd do the happy dance ... )
