New Lindens Homes on Bellisseria

In this episode of Designing Worlds Special we’re visiting the new continent of Bellisseria, and finding out all about the new Linden Homes!

The show goes live on Tuesday 16th April at 2pm SLT on the Designing Worlds Vimeo channel (and, for technical reasons, later on the Designing Worlds channel at SLArtist) – and you can join the special Watch Party (also at 2pm SLT) in our studio on Garden of Dreams, where we are sure there will be lots of lively discussion!

Here’s a taster …

 

In the first part, we take a look at the original Linden Homes, and talk about some of the problems they encountered – the cramped feel of the regions, the lack of surrounding space for each home, and the lack of a community feel.

Then we move to the first two types of Linden Home released – the traditional homes and the houseboats. We talk with Patch Linden about the ideas that have gone into their construction, and the way that community spaces have been developed, centering around activities and places to visit, within the community itself.

And, of course, we take time to explore some of the possibilities you have with the homes, easily changing the styles and redecorating at will!

It all makes for a fascinating and informative show, so please tune in or join us at 2pm SLT.

In this show, we take the monorail to talk to Reven Rosca about the auction and other entertainment that took place at the Expo, we explore some of the designs on display and talk to undercoverlady, who designed our lovely Rainforest Cafe. We also take a look at the homes that were created for the Decorating Contest (and if you want to find out who the winners were, you can read all about them here: http://bit.ly/2YZksoj)

Saffia and Sophia

Saffia and Sophia

In the latest episode of Designing Worlds we pay a visit to Carrie Tatsu and the amazing Zooby’s, home of animated virtual pets and, even more famously, virtual babies, to learn all about the release of her latest project – animesh babies!

DW395 – Zooby’s from Richard Elen on Vimeo.

We see how Carrie Tatsu has developed her business from her earliest prim dogs back in 2007 up to the stunning animesh babies that she is about to release. We learn all about what they can do; the ideas behind their creation; and how Carrie prizes above all the experiences they offer.

In addition to discovering more about her impressive new line of Animesh babies, we learn that Carrie is an accomplished businesswoman in Second Life. We hear the story of her business and gain many insights, including her views on Second Life and where virtual worlds are heading.

Saffia gets her own baby, and learns how to create a mini Saffia of her own. Be afraid … be very afraid …

It’s a fascinating show looking at the evolution of a popular Second life business, and also at how new techniques can be integrated in exciting ways.

You can visit the Zooby’s pet store here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Zoobyland/128/130/21
Be warned – the animesh babies will not be on sale until towards the end of April. We predict lots of Easter babies this year on the grid!
