Fishing boats in Hosoi

Fishing boats in Hosoi

Join us at 2pm SLT today, Monday 25th June, for a episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams as we visit the beautiful sims in the Hosoi cluster, created by Amiryu Hosoi and home to some amazing cvreations, and a vibrant roleplay community.

In fact, there is so much to see in the Hosoi Cluster that we focus on just some of the beautiful builds – such as the Great Wall of China – and we plan to return in the autumn to explore the roleplay aspect and see more of the sims.

In this show, we are accompanied by some of the residents of Hosoi, who introduce us to this lovely area – and also explain a little of the history and lifestyle that those who come here regularly have evolved. It makes for a fascinating – and stunningly beautiful show that you will not want to miss – so do come and join us at 2pm!

Join us at our fantastic studios on Garden of Dreams at 2pm Pacific (22:00 in the UK) to see Designing Worlds‘ second foray into the wonderful worlds of the Home & Garden Expo 2012.

We’ll be visiting the exhibits of a wealth of extremely talented people, and alongside some of the top builders and interior/exterior designers (including an elegant villa entirely mesh-built by Cain Maven and the animation-laden kitchens of {WhatNext}), we’ll be meeting the AI doggies of the Virtual Kennel Club and seeing an exquisitely catpunk exhibit from KittyCatS. We’ll meet one of the minds behind the Builders’ Brewery and we’ll chat about the implications of mesh and the petite furniture market – and much more in this extended edition.

If you can’t join us in person in the studio, then catch the show on the live stream where you can not only watch the programme: you can also chat to other members of the audience (and often some of the participants).

Then soon after it’s gone out you can watch it on the Designing Worlds page at Treet.tv.

PLEASE NOTE: This show was postponed from June 4th.

Join us at 2pm today, Monday 11th June, for a episode of Designing Worlds at our studio in Garden of Dreams where we look back at some of the amazing and beautiful builds on display at this year’s Home and Garden Expo.

We’ll be talking to Nikki Mathieson, the Co-Ordinator of this huge event (14 regions this year – plus the entertainment sim and the breedables!), to Froukje Hoorenbeek of Dutchie (who was the sponsor of a largely mesh sim, set on a lovely Dutch polder), to Marina Ramer & Jaylin Whitewood of Aphrodite, who were displaying some of their pretty cottages, to Cierra Anatine, who was sponsoring a region with a decidedly medieval theme, and Saffia will be talking about her own sponsored region, which took the theme of Minton’s famous Blue Willow pattern china … and developed a special ceremony which you may have read about on the blog – and which you’ll have a chance to see here!

It makes for a fascinating show – so do come and join us at 2pm!

Sadly, last night’s show from the Home and Garden Expo could not be shown due to technical glitches (our server system in Australia suffered an outage – actually, Treet is rather better in this respect than the BBC in the 1950s and 1960s where such things seemed to be a regular feature – I am just old enough to remember watching the testcard while an impeccably BBC voice informed us gravely that “Normal Service will be resumed as soon as possible”.

In this case. Treet is back on the air – or will be shortly – but we have decided to hold over the show until we can have a proper viewing. So the first of our shows about the Home and Garden Expo will be next week – same time, same channel. Don’t miss it!
