Xeniversity is having a grand opening tomorrow and you're all invited! I had the pleasure of checking out the sim today and it is so different from other furniture/prefab shops. The 'build' consists of a platform made up of cubes with platforms on different levels for you to shop in an open, unconfined space. There's already furniture and a prefab there, with promises of more to come soon.
I had the pleasure of seeing the Canal St. Loft prefab skybox up-close and I am so impressed with the textures and built-in features. Here is the official graphic with some pictures and all the specs listed:
Here are some pictures I snapped in-world, totally un-retouched so you can see that the skybox will look exactly like it does in the vendor ad. All the shadows are baked onto he textures so it really does look like this once you rez it!
Outside view (texture-changeable)
Incredible ceiling & Door (it's scripted to open & close)
For a box that is 22x22x12meters, it sure looks big! Here's a picture of me inside the loft skybox. There's plenty of room inside for furniture, or a studio or whatever you want to use it for. The open space is very versatile.
Well, you know I can't do a blog post without a picture of me somewhere… 😀 I think this skybox is great for photographs.
Here's a little tip for you guys reading this, if you can't wait to see the Canal St. Loft up-close; it is set for sale right now, even though the sim has not officially opened yet! Tp to Xeniversity.
Here's a copy of the invitation notecard with relevant date/time information for everyone interested in attending the grand opening party tomorrow:
