Rethinking my Product Line

Rethinking my Product Line

Written 16 March, 2013

I've been stuggling for a couple of weeks now, relisting my products on the Second Life Market place and repacking my in-world servers. Redoing my Navajo-style jewelry line has been tedious because there are nine items in nine stones, all in both silver and gold. It makes my eyes cross.

I turned in early last night and awoke at 3:30 am with the realization that I should overcome my reluctance to add scripts to the jewelry. Doing so would turn hundreds of products into just eighteen-- and I can easily write the needed scripts.

I don't want to be responsible for hundreds of pieces of jewelry containing scripts, so I'm thinking I'll set the scripts to turn themselves off after a few minutes.

I will be revitalizing and redesigning my Flights of Fancy blog and listing new products and products I should have featured long ago.

Members of the Flights of Fancy group will receive a 20% discount with all purchases from my in-world vendors.

Visit the Suborbital Asteriod Retreat 4000 meters above Whimsy. It's home to the Flights of Fancy store and there are great games in the dirigible overhead. And most importantly, visit again in a couple of months when the results of my hard work will be apparent.

One thing I really love that is a new innovation is people having colorung HUDs. You put the HUD on, it colors the jewelry, you take the HUD off, and all or most of the scripts are GONE. katat0nik uses them now, and De La Soul, and SLink, Dilly Dolls and... more, but I'm blanking on them. Might be a good option if you're script conscious.

I've seen those, Deoridhe. It would be easy enough to implement, but the blue menu popup I wrote is working fine. I got up early this morning and wrote the code. The menu changes stone textures, texture density, and color of specified prims. If I had more than nine textures I might consider the HUD. Personally, I find most of the designer-made HUDS a bit claustrophobic because they take up so much screen space.

I do have a delete choice in he popup menu. I'm finished except for adding a confirmation step- and I will need to set the touch event to respond to the owner only.
