alien invasions and old french stuff

28 06 2008

if any of you remember the old version of the sim downtown, you may remember the old factory building i made for it. ah the good old days. that sim opened a year ago may 5th and died a miserable death soon after. which in sl years, puts it in the late jurassic. anyway, it was too much fun of a building to just let die, so we refubished it and now its for sale, in 2 versions. (btw, the sim that dt was on, is now owned by my freinds haedon. its now like a weschester suburb, and i have a shop and a liquor store there.)

.

the first is the size of the old one, 2 stories, 20×24. its based on an old picture of a french factory i saw from like 1858 around then. lets just say they DID make french fries there. or french bread. something nationalistic like that.

the big assed one, that i redid as a temporary shop for marly, is 3 stories, 50 x 24 and has an elevator and 2 entrances. it big. 457 prims. dont say prim hog. just dont say it. anyway this is kind an experiment to see if people wanna buy large primmy structures. do yuh?

.. . and to pass the time, we  did an old street light. as life tends to go around here, we were setting up to shoot the factory, and  i started wondering why no one in sl did one of those war of the worlds kinda streetlights. well i think war of the worlds like that george pal version where the martians died cuz they went to church instead of actually doing something constructive.  uh, gene barry went to church, not the martians. anyway, after i saw that movie as a kid, i always thought these lights looked like the martian death ray thingers, which made them a lot cooler, and  a rich internal dialog always made getting dragged off to the kmart by my mom, so much more bearable.

soooooo, the shoot takes way too long cuz we have to make a light, the we have to script it, then well, that cold be a product, then… blah, and blah, ad infinitum. its got a script that makes the lights go on and off with the time of day.  cuz this is america and if your light just sits there, the terrorists win.

all this stuff is at my shops, and on slex.
