Some of you may have noticed that the NEW RANGE is finally out in my shops. I have been working on it for a while, trying to figure out the best way to present it. When i first came to SL i used to just have product boxes on the walls witch you could buy. Then as SL developed, scripted vendor machines became all the rage and saved valuable prim space. But as Second Life becomes more and more unstable those scripted vendors have become buggy and fail to deliver. So i have gone back to putting product boxes on the walls. This should be more reliable and also make it easyer for me to quickly update my stuff.

Also OUT NOW is the first LOKI magazine, containing info on my latest range and also some articles about Nemo Beach and Steampunk. You can read it online as a PDF here..
Loki Magazine ONE

Or visit one of my stores in SL for a Virtual Book version.

My stores are located at Legoland shopping mall, InnerChild, Clown Town and the Main store at Nemo Beach!

Hope you had a great christmas, and heres to 2008!!

Well the last year in SL has been an interesting one with plenty of drama and controversy. From the Policy changes enforced by Chadrick Linden (whos now left Linden Lab) to the pointless age verifications. All in all its been a year of madness as the Linden State try to push Secondlife into a small box for investors, businesses and government peers who have no interest in understanding what the metaverse actually is and means to the souls who occupy it.

Heres to hoping that 2008 will bring us support, stability and understanding!

Nemo Beach Moving?????

Yesterday i had a meeting with many regular visitors of Nemo Beach to discuss the posseblility of moving the place to a new private sim shared with my brother Gemini and long time SL kid Kris.

Under discussion was how it might be moved with as little distruption and change as possible. Also good and bad points were discussed.

For those who did not attend the meeting the plan is to move Nemo beach and surrounding areas such as Hawkins Bay and Gypsy Cove to a new private sim. If i agree then this will happen next year between Febuary and April.

I have compiled a list of Pro’s and Con’s that came to light during the meeting…

1. Will own the land, have estate control. Means easier to fix any grief problems.
2. Not Anshe Chung dreamland – Means less likely to be targeted for griefing.
3. Will have input on how the entire sim will look – With neighbours i know and trust you will be able to use the entire SIm to fly and explore and not see huge crap buildings that look out of place.
4. I will have Half a sim rather than 1 third. and with that extra land i plan to make another sea front cabin village for those who want a home close to Nemo Beach.
5. With ownership of the land it will be possible to do larger events including festivals.
6. Monthly Tier for the land will be cheaper than what im currently paying Anshe Chung.

1. Will cost me alot to Buy the land first.
2. Might not be able to get it looking exactly like Nemo does now.
3. The combining of the Vortex Club and Nemo Beach might increase LAG.
4. The Sim will be on its own, no ability to fly or sail into other sims.
5. All Landmarks on the web pointing to Nemo Beach will become redundant.
6. If it does not work out, if it becomes one big mess, i cant go back to Sunrise. Plus id have to keep paying for the land until i find someone else to buy it.

Part of me is excited by the prospect, and part of me is very nervous, because change is so frightening sometimes. I am still looking into ways to move Nemo Beach more exactly, packing buildings, transfering terrain maps. I’m also looking into issues with LAG and talking with Kris and Gemini about what they are thinking of doing. I havent said a definite yes yet until i’m absolutely sure about it.

If you have any questions or advice on any of the issues, please feel free to IM me.

Setting out from Port Babbage

With windlight in hand i ventured out across the new Vernian sea to see what lay out there amongst the waves

The sun was rising beautifully over Babbage Canal District as i left the port and headed towards the giant light house…

In the distance i could see the light house still blazing its beams to sea and beyond that was that island that so many boys are warned never to approach…

As i passed the light house i could have sworn someone was in the window looking down at my raft, but me being well hard pressed on!

And here is was, the old Island. Who lives there, i dunno… but i bet they is scary and have guns! and BIG DOGS!!!

As i looked up i saw the pirate flag, and that was it , i shat myself and decided best head back and get some mates together for an expedition of this scaryness and danger!

Held Hostage by a DOG!

So i was working on my new vendors in the Absinthe Cafe in New Babbage when all of a sudden i heard a growl behind me. Upon turning i saw a wild brown nasty sharp toothed dog that obviously wanted to eat me. But me being all smart and kool quickly climbed onto the bar out of reach.

After shouting meself blue in the face a kid called Billy came to find out what all the noise was. Well soon he was on top of the bar with me out of the rabid dogs reach.

Well eventually the dog went away and me and billy climbed down. We took flight on my airship with my Brother lock’n’loaded with canon, but we was unable to find any trace of the beast….
