Help me!

I decided to do a hunt today and one of the prizes in the “Winter Blows” hunt grabbed my attention and so I made my first visit to the “Hearts and Cart Wheels” shop and although on the surface the hint given seems pretty easy I simply couldn’t find the hidden snowflake! Soooo basically if anyone has a spare moment and is a better hunter than I can you look and let me know?

Mind you even if you don’t find it there is some real interesting stuff here inc bargains and also 2 lucky emm petrol pumps.  Simply wait for your initial to come up and you too can have your own “Muff mobile”.

Yup how lucky was I.  So, of course, my first thought was to park it outside of Faiths home next to PD’s muscle car so they now have a “His n Her” set.

Don’t worry Faith I’ve driven off now.  This does come with a standard driving menu and pretty easy to drive, I only crashed about 2 times which is pretty good for me.  This is a shop packed with so many vehicles from the comic, The Flintstones car to the super serious muscle cars/bikes. Also a range of famous cars from TV and films.

The LBs only change every 30mins but the prizes seem to as well but if you don’t want to linger then once you’ve checked out the shop you will find that there is a room packed with 25Lds offers.  A whole random selection of new and old vehicles, some bits n bobs to decor your home/sim ie stage lights, generators etc.  I ended up buying nothing as I simply couldn’t make my mind up in the end and I intend on checking my invent to make sure I don’t already have some of the items.

Fricken Awesome.

I meant what I said in a previous post and on payday I contacted Motor Loon and got myself a boat.  This is a proper boat and not the little wooden dingy we all pick up along the way in SL.  Check out this picture to check out the awesomeness.

Folm

OK so I have played a little bit with windlight but you can too so can’t you just picture yourself in this scene.  All other photos will be taken in the simple Nams Prim and Skin setting which we should ALL use because it is very similar to the normal SL lighting but less harsh and you don’t have to use a facelight to look stunning.

HelmMy RL knowledge about boating is lacking  I can use a paddle and that’s about it but I’ve checked out the menu and glanced at the easy to follow instructions and although a lot of it I allowed to go right over my head it’s easy to see that if you’re an in world sailor or just a poser like me this is a boat for both.  You get a box full of texturing which   means you can change a lot of the texturing on the boat from the hull to the flag and even I managed to change the flag to the Pure Logo.

KitchenLets think “outside of the box” as they say.  If you own a tiny plot with the minimum of Prims then you could make this your home because as compact as it is it has everything inc the kitchen sink because everything comes to a tiny 32prims which means anyone could own a boat of this quality. If you don’t want to sink any of your land when you rezz your boat it comes on a low primmed dry dock stand, a lovely touch.

A lot of thing on here are a simple touch control even the lighting, curtains, hatch or from the menu although the menu is mainly for the sailing bit.  Whats shown here is the steps down to the living quarters and you can see the radio and even ………………………..

Snapshot_038… Ta Dah the toilet!

BedroomBedroom is through a little crawl space under the the rear of the boat or is that stern? From what I can tell it’s just a few poses I don’t even know it it has a cuddle menu in it but not everything needs it nor does everyone want it so that’s not an issue.

Bedroom2One of the poses is of you lying on your belly looking out of the little door into the living area which is so cute.  The whole boat comes packed with poses and the blurb says “Smooth moving parts (doors/hatches etc) and support for up to 32 passengers all with individual animations (though I may not recommend that many for sim crossings). Boat also features working sails (luffing and shaping to wind), automatic spinnaker, working folding prop, working inboard motor (you can flip up the staircase to expose it), working cabin lights, deployable fenders, working anchor and lots lots more”.  Don’t let any of the sailing jargon put you off if your a boating noob like me it’s still so easy.

LivingroomLast photo I promise.  It was so hard to chose which photos to use because they all turned out so well.  This of course it the seating area and you can see that yet again although this is a compact boat it’s damned roomy enough.  The table in the centre is drop leafed so one click and one side is lowered another click and down goes the other side so  it’s even easy to walk around.

As I’ve said this is a real sailing boat and so I braved the open seas and YES it works.  I will have to read the instructions a bit better but all I know is even I managed to steer it and it was FUN.  You get a great AO of you steering the helm and the lovely relaxing sound of waves crashing on the front bit, prow?, even crests of small waves as you cut through the open water  and I deliberately went through 3 sim crossings and not a single issue.

Thanks to a Pure reader who pointed out to me that you can pick up a demo model of the Oceanic from the MP I had gotten a taster of what it would be like but in all honestly I and even  the Pure reader would say PAY the difference and get the Loonetta.  She maybe a bit more expensive than the Oceanic but she definitely has the updated edge to her and is so worth the extra (Loonetta 3500 Oceanic 3000).

So the MP to get the Oceanic demo and the inworld LM so you can have a better look at the Loonetta  for yourself. Almost forgot to say that MLCC  is even bigger on the bikes and cars a real petrol head paradise.

Sugar Daddy Needed

I want this boat (but could only afford the outfit).  I decided to pop back to dollies  to pick up their Glam Affair Hunt  offering of a simple off the shoulder mesh dress but sadly I looked to the left of my screen and on the New Items wall was this lovely tempting little number and I was going to be so good and not buy myself a new outfit.  Frilly but not fluffy.  The top has a lovely fat bow at the back and the skirt is a mini with a frill attached to the back.  Sexy and cute at the same time.  I chose the chocolate-brown but other choices available and of course a demo.

This is my little boat, and also the Glam Hunt dress which is a simple off the shoulder brilliantly textured little evening  dress, my boat is a sad little thing compared to the one I really really want.

Perga11This is what I should be sitting on.  It comes from MLCC (Motor Loon Custom Cycles) and I hope you can see in the pictures all the amazing attention to details and texturing makes this boat an absolute stunner.

Perga3Even down to the small galley kitchen and bedroom this is near damned perfect.  This is the Loonetta Model but in  the boatyard there is a few models to choose from, from this compact boat to something an Russian oligarchy would be proud to be seen in.

Because I’m a woman and I’ve spent the last 45 mins wandering in and out of all the boats I’ve changed my mind and I now want the Oceanic.  Just as beautiful, just as amazingly low primmed, just as many menus, but this comes with 4 factory paint jobs and is wow even less at 3000Lds.  Saving my lindens already to get myself one.

If your a bike nut who needs a place to ride then check out Motor Loon’s profile because he has generously set up sims for people to ride themselves to the ground.
