Chucking prims together

Chucking prims together: the Victorian skybox

I’ve had this sitting on my main building platform for weeks now, but I finally got the inspiration to finish it yesterday. It still needs a few tweaks, and I have to go through all the rigmarole of getting it out for sale in various arenas, but it’s just about finished.

The Victorians were renowned for cramming together stuff willy-nilly, including patterns and textures. There was nary a Victorian parlour that wasn’t jammed with objects, so in furnishing the main room I bore that fact in mind. Above is one view, and this is looking the other way:

I’ve left the hallway relatively bare, except for some wall lighting, a sideboard, and an old settle. I may add some more bits and pieces here, maybe not. I love  this wall texture, though. Again, completely OTT and crazy on the patterns, just as was done back then:

Lastly, the study. I am so  pleased with how the curved bookcases came out. Slightly less pleased with the desk texture (I can’t find one that works to my liking, so I’ll still be fiddling with that for a while, methinks).

Incidentally, at the beginning of the post I mentioned ‘all the rigmarole’ of getting a build like this out for sale. This is my own personal rigmarole:

– Rex Faux the build & test-rez to make sure it works
– Pack into a box
– Take high-res snapshots
– Create ad images & upload
– Load boxed build into Caspervend dropbox
– Set up Caspervend vendor
– Set rezzed version out as ‘rezzed build of the week’
– Change teleports etc in store to new rezzed build
– Load into holovendor (not yet fully in use, but loading everything new for now)
– Write group notice & send to update group & Subscribe-O-Matic
– Send build etc to Marketplace
– Write up Marketplace listing
