This is GOD. Am I going to Hell for the title of this post?
“Garden Of Dreams” to be exact. This is a shop that has been in-world for as long as I have so it’s ancient but it’s nice to see that although it’s kept it’s unique approach to builds in SL it has moved on with the times.
I know Faith has a bought a few of their “Dream Scenes” and I also own a couple of the free scenes myself. OK gonna try to explain this as clearly as poss.
You can buy individual “scenes” such as a ballroom, library, dining room, cave, space, Hell etc and you load your purchases into an installer and using the globes you simply “slip in” to them and chose from the menu which scene you want to go to and not only does this take you to the scene but in fact the scene isn’t permanently set out and as you TP it rezzes around you. This means that you can change the space around you at one click to suit your mood. These scenes are primmy but that’s because they come complete with everything you would want to see and use. If you want to keep your scene out permanently then you can and then, of course, you can add any extra decor item you wish or just remember when you pack away your scene to pack the items you rezzed out before hand.
OK Clear as mud but the best way to understand what I’m blabbing on about is to try it for yourself. You might just be able to make out the globes in the picture and you want to head for them.
Click on one of them then simply “slip inside” and out of the menu chose which the scene you want to check out and it takes you there. You have 15 mins to check it out which is more than enough time. You can then just slip back into the globe and check somewhere else out or return to the shop.
Don’t worry when you “stand” the globe does disappear but you will spot a white glow in the scene and you just click on that and the globe reappears again to take you to the next destination.
If you check out my last post “Sweet Poison” that picture was taken in one of the Scenes and it’s not a flat texture behind me but an extraordinary room. If like me you’ve not been to GOD for a long time you will be trapped by checking out all the new scenes and a lot of the old classics which have stood up to the test of time.
I also believe that the more “scenes” you purchase then if you contact the management you will get a discount and they will do all the installation work, but I don’t think it’s actually hard to do it yourself but deffo check it out for the discount as they’re not cheap BUT for the quality and uniqueness a bargain.
Now for the FREEBIES cos there is a lot of them.
OK, this one has suffered from the passing of time, it’s a desert skybox. If I had a Road Runner or a Coyote toy I would have placed them in this scene lol, I only picked a small handful of the freebies up and that does inc a few more of these scenes which you can just rezz or use the globe.
This freebie in this picture is just the balloons. If you’ve been over to our sim before then you might recognise this as the landing spot we have set out, of course, you’re free to wander the whole sim but this is a lovely hang out area just for you lot.
Yes, that’s Moi in the bottom right-hand corner. These balloons are really old gifts but I think these might be updated from the ones I have as I’m sure the older version didn’t have a slow movement to them. Doesn’t really matter as they’re only a total of 2 prims and I actually like them where they are.
The hay cart and the bales are also freebies. The cart again suffers from primmage but those bales are more than reasonable and pretty big. They also come with a menu which inc singles n NOOKIE ones! I also picked up a matching well but I lost that and a new large wood candle stick out of all the giftes. You will find these on the next level up, look at my first picture and at the lower right corner you can see the stairs that take you to the next level and all the goodies at the back.
Now for the keepers.
Although in this picture I’m just showing you one of the shrubs from a pack of many I’m really pleased with them they all seem to have a very Autumnal tones. A mix of single and ground cover shrubs and grasses and only a single prim. When we start to change our sims season these will be appearing everywhere.
The whole sim is open to everyone to come and enjoy. It has been uniquely landscaped and covered with areas of interest and lots of lots of dancing AOs. So a lovely way to spend a lazy Sunder, check out the shop and the scenes, grab some freebies and then spend time wanding the sim.
PS There is also a lot of sim landscaping for sale in the GOD shop.
