..You Marry The Person Who You Cannot Live Without… (LuxeBox August 2017)

 

We seek the comfort of another.
Someone to share and share the life we choose.
Someone to help us through the
neverending attempt to understand ourselves.
And in the end,
someone to comfort us along the way.

– Marlin Finch Lupus

 

I normally would have an unboxing video to go along with this post but I simply didn’t have the time or the drive to record a video at the moment. If I record one in the next week I will add it to this post, but I at least wanted to get a picture with the amazing items from this month.

If you didn’t join the Luxe Box in time for the month and you would like to get the items, there are two different ways that you can get it. First you can join the Luxe Box group on the 15’th of the month after it’s been delivered for double the price until 12am of the 16’th of that month or Secondly you can join when enrollment begins on the 1’st of the month and go to the Luxe Box Boutique and buy any of the previous Luxe Boxes. All of this information is listed on the Luxe Box FAQ. All previously released Luxe Boxes are available at the Luxe Box Boutique for the cost of 2000L. To receive the latest Luxe Boxes, it costs 1500L to join the group every month before the 15’th when enrollment ends and the box is delivered. To see what’s in the boxes of previous months, check out the Luxe Box Catalog.

..Idle Summer Day..

 

Summer is the annual permission slip to be lazy. To do nothing and have it count for something. To lie in the grass and count the stars. To sit on a branch and study the clouds. – Regina Brett

I Don’t Want to be Saved…

 

The only people for me are the mad ones: the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who… burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow Roman candles. – Jack Kerouac

The Joy of Gardening – Designer Showcase: Apple Fall

A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them. A garden is a grand teacher. – Unknown

 

Currently Apple Fall is having an amazing sale inworld; where items are marked to 25, 50 or 75L only. Please note that giftcards are not included for the sale; those are still full price. Also the sale is only inworld and not on Marketplace.  The sale started on Monday July 17, 2017  and will be going until Friday July 21, 2017. There are so many amazing deals at the sale; that everyone should take a moment and check out. I’ve also personally found 15 items in the mainstore that were marked down to 0L. Free everyone!, of those items; a few were plants and one was the Apple Fall – New York Studio Apartment. The Studio Apartment has a menu where you can change the texture of the walls & floor to 4 different themes, reflecting New York. It’s an amazing steal; and there are many more free items hidden around.

 

Today I bring you a tutorial of how to create your own personal planters using items that I’ve gotten at the Apple Fall Sale. Below you’ll find my video tutorial/vlog on how to unlink items and relink with other items to create your own planter. The possibilities are endless of what you can create with items that are modifiable and can be unlinked.

I hope that you enjoyed the tutorial/vlog and that I helped to show what is possible once you know what to do.

Converting Azz Appliers to Omega

My blog about The Maitreya Mesh Body and Omega Appliers, has already gotten quite a few views and replies on Facebook thanks to Strawberry Singh sharing it.

A common question that has come up is how does one convert their old Phat Azz & Lola Appliers into New Omega ones. It’s quite simple and I’ll walk you right through it but first I need to make a note in regards to Lola’s Appliers. You do not need to convert your Lola appliers into an Omega one. It seems that the Lola’s and Omega notecards are read on the same channel, meaning that Lola appliers should work just fine unless they were not made with full upper textures as I detailed in my last post.

At the Omega store and on their marketplace page, there’s a kit for converting appliers to Omega. If you also have the Maitreya Mesh Body you need to grab their Omega Relay to apply the clothing to the mesh body

Converting Phat Azz or any other Azz Appliers to Omega:

In the picture below, I am showing what came with the Converter Bundle for Omega System. I will just be working with the Omega Classic – Convertsion Kit. -The Combo Bottom Applier

 

Omega Look

 

First you need to rezz out the applier you want to convert, try to do this on a building platform or outside of your home, you don’t want to accidentally delete something and create more work for yourself. Then rez out one of the combo bottom appliers from Omega. Next you need to right click and select edit on the applier you are converting from so that you can grab the notecard. I should note that most are linked objects so while in edit you need to click on edit linked parts then on the prim. For example, I am using a Reign applier, I click edit linked parts and then on ‘Pants’, next going to the Content folder which shows the notecard that I can drag out and drop into my inventory.

Next you will want to right click to enter edit mode on the Omega Applier, once there in the content folder of the object you will already find a ‘Config Pant’ Notecard there, you must right click and delete that notecard one before dropping in the new one!

Drag and drop in your new notecard into the object, it should have been no modify/no transfer when you took it from the original applier. Rename your Applier and take it into your inventory, making sure to place it in theory into the folder the outfit is as it will not do that automatically. Also either take or delete your other applier but make sure it was copyable, it wasn’t then you need to make sure to take it back into your inventory otherwise it will be deleted and then you will lose it!!

Now to test out and see if your applier was made correctly make sure you have it attached, along with your Maitreya Hud and Maitreya Omega Relay. Click Pants on your applier and it should apply, now I also have on my Reign applier as well to show that when the Maitreya Omega Relay is attached you can simply click on the Lola applier and it appears on your body also well, as long as the texture for the Lolas was made with a full upper texture as stated in my other blog.

I hope this has cleared up a few things and explained thing a bit better for those converting their appliers. If anyone else has any questions, please feel free to contact me on my Facebook. Flickr or Facebook Page For The Blog.
