New! Scripted Compass and Altimeter

I've just released this scripted altimeter. It registers, in both analog and digital format, altitude to 10,000 meters. It updates several times a second, so remains accurate without overworking the simulator.

It's designed to be worn n the upper left HUD position, but can be attached elsewhere on the HUD or rezzed on the land. It can even be attached to your airplane or other vehicle! It's copyable and modifiable, and has a land impact of only four.

When you're underwater the face of the altimeter turns aqua. It's very cool to see it turn from white to blue to white again as you dip in and out of the water.

Above 4096 meters (the maximum height for building), the face turns yellow. If you go below zero meters (yes, it's possible!), the face turns red. I have to say, it's very strange below the surface. The lowest I've ever been is -340 meters.

Let me tell you-- it gets strange fast when you're below the grid!

Here's my scripted compass. When worn on the HUD the direction you are facing appears at the top. Here it's north, with west to your left, east to your right, and south behind you. It's intuitive--easy to use.

Like the altimeter, the compass is copyable and modifiable, and can be rezzed on the land or attached to a vehicle (land impact is 1).

Like the altimeter, the compass updates several times a second for smooth movement.

The price is just $149L.

The compass, priced at just $99L, is inexpensive and indispensable.

Reintroducing My Maypole

I love this maypole. It seats four avatars with custom poses and whisks them happily around-- and not only on the first of May.

Touch to start. Touch again to start music. Touch a third time to stop both movement and music. 

The carousel times out after three minutes, so you won't log in to find it's been revolving since last Saturday.

The carousel is copyable and modifiable, so feel free to remove some of the ribbons and balls to reduce prim count.

I've reduced the price to a low, low $125L. It's a steal!

Pick up yours today at my Flights of Fancy store. You'll find the SLURL at right in the sidebar.

Price Lowered on 1920s Fruit Crates

I've lowered the price on this pallet of 1920s fruit and vegetable crates by 50%. They're on sale on the Second Life Marketplace for $150, and at Flights of Fancy Creations for $140. They're now modifiable and copyable, no transfer.

Until I update the sign I'm including a mod/transfer set also. That means you can make copies of the crates and yet give the transferrable ones away. How sweet is that?

What makes this set of crates special is its connection to organized crime. The top to one crate has been slid backwards, revealing a dozen bottles of bootleg champagne. An orange half, pierced with a knife, suggests someone was having a snackie-poo when, oh, I dunno, maybe the Feds busted in.

New Low Price on Kaboom Teleport Rocket

If you've not tried my teleport rocket, you should. Riding it is a great experience! You sit, it counts down, and zoom! You're 700 meters above the ground and still climbing!

It's totally awesome to go into mouselook and watch the ground drop away. Positively NASA!

When the rocket loses intertia and begins to fall back to earth it explodes and the rider is teleported to anyplace in the sim the owner has chosen-- anywhere. Meanwhile, back at the launchpad, a new rocket materializes.

The owner can always set the return point a few meters away from the launch port and turn the rocket into just a fun ride.

I plan to build a larger multi-seat version which just might make the teleport rocket the only teleporter in Second Life that will move multiple people. Someone else might have built such a thing; I'm just sayin' I've never seen one.

I've lowered the price from $750 to a cool $395. It's that or pay Richard Branson a quarter-million dollars. You choose!

Check out my other Second Life Blog for a post soon to appear about a new use I discovered for the teleport rocket. You can adjust the tilt and fly across multiple sims! Fun! Dangerous! Dangerous fun!

You can see a visual display of the rocket at the Flights of Fancy Store or go to the Sea Decks on Whimsy Kaboom and ride it for real. I'll have to get down there as soon as this posts and reduce the price on the sales sign!

Southwestern-Style Jewelry: Now Improved-- and Less Expensive!

My Southwestern-style jewelry has sold well for years, but frankly, it was a nightmare to sell.

With nine pieces, each available in nine stones in both gold and silver, there were several hundred items to manage on both the Second Life Marketplace and my vendors-- so when the Lindens announced they were going to kill the old-style magic boxes that held my items, I re-thought the line. Here's what's new:

That's right, the jewelry is now scripted. My customers can now select from any of nine beautiful stones via script. Each piece contains just one script, so lag is nearly immeasurable.

Prices are significantly lower, too. That means for less than the price of a single item, you get what were once nine products!

As with all my jewelry, it's copiable and modifiable.

The jewelry is stunning, as you can see from the topmost photo. Look below the fold for more pictures.

Don't forget there's a 25% discount for members of the Flights of Fancy group. There are handy signs at the store.
