Nice to read this. I too have been contemplating why there seems to be so little written about the architectural/content creation in SL.

Nice work. I'd like to see more of this sort of thing as well.

Check out Rustica for some lovely home decorating items also, I'm a fan


This is a great article. I'm surprised you chose to feature Mike's candles instead of his cushions, which are SO amazing and such a steal for the box of copyable ones. Also, I think Barnesworth and Xenius Revere are collaborating on furniture now - I recently got a set of sculpty couch and chairs that is so heartwrenchingly beautiful that I almost feel bad putting it out next to my other (beautiful in it's own rights) furniture, because it puts it all to shame.

And I am TOTALLY with you on the prefabs being mod, and I think they should be COPY as well. I won't say who made it, but I bought an exquisite brick prefab from a very well-known designer a few months back for something crazy like 20k lindens. (I really loved it.) I soon got that stupid bug where some floor prims were acting phantom, and couldn't even rez a second copy of the house to remedy it. I ended up putting invisible prims over them so I would stop falling through, but that's ridiculous.

I have a well-known treehouse that is no-mod, also. It's a shame, because I'd love it a lot more if I could expand it a little bit.

Hi, I just wrote a novel.


Enjoyed this article, lots of great finds to shop for! And finding genuine art isn't easy, agreed, but allow me to add one I am certain of! Check out the wonderful work of RL oil painter Golam Amadeus. He has some of his creations rezzed (and for sale) at Kumarajiva.
