Sketchup: Sculpties 2 Go

Well, we've reported on Sculpties coming to Second Life, as part of the 'advanced 3D modelling' things to invade Second Life. One of the questions was if this would set homegrown primbuilders back and give professional modellers an edge in using expensive 3D suites, like Maya or 3D Studio Max.

Well, here's the good news: You can start for free! I found out at the Eightbar blog that you can export Google Sketch-up as well: http://eightbar.co.uk/2006/09/29/google-sketchup-second-life-export/

German Design



Contrary to the stylish designs of the Dutch, the German design looks like they skipped the chapter on texturing. The designs of BMW and Toca Me are of a blinding white that will doubtlessly invoke instant snowblindness.

Sloppy performance by Weber

When one of SL's design guru's, Aimee Weber, was asked to participate in the built of the sim of one of the sexiest SL companies, Millions of US, one thought it would be one big showcase for SL architecture. Well, the auditorium is awesome as you can see on the pic below.




An insider at MoU however told me there was sloppy work involved. When closely examening the structures on the island.... well, you be the judge.
