Dog Day Afternoon

with 8 comments

A hot, sultry afternoon at the end of August, when all you want to do is to lay down with a nice ice cold beer. It’s baking down at the garage and nothing is moving except for puppies and pigeons.

Introducing KraftWork‘s “Converted Garage” which will be at the upcoming FaMESHed event, starting September 1st.  This is a collaboration with TRIIN and if you think you’ve seen something similar, well you have!  It’s the custom build garage from The Lost Forever sim but converted so that you could also use it as a home.  Also showing the Vintage Truck Bar and Mirror by unKindness which is currently a special Marketplace offer to August 30th.

 

Now you also get that gorgeous Smith & Sons sign!  The garage doors fold up and down with a click and inside there’s a large space for the cars ‘n trucks and that opens up into a room that is plenty big enough for the essentials of a house.

 

Let’s go around the sides of the garage. Here at the back you’ve got the garage silo which is a nice piece architecturally in itself.

 

Then here you’ve got the side front elevation, showing the TV mast at the end and a side entrance into the large back room.  The base is part of the build so you don’t have to go looking for a suitable flat piece to park your garage on.

And here we are at the back.  This would be rather nice set into a landscaped garden if you were thinking of using it for a home.

Trucks and pets to finish with!  That dog’s got the right idea.

KraftWork – Fire Station

with 4 comments

 

In North America, Jamestown, Virginia was virtually destroyed in a fire in January, 1608. There were no full time paid firefighters in America until 1850. Even after the formation of paid fire companies in the United States, there were disagreements and often fights over territory. New York City companies were famous for sending runners out to fires with a large barrel to cover the hydrant closest to the fire in advance of the engines.  Often fights would break out between the runners and even the responding fire companies for the right to fight the fire and receive the insurance money that would be paid to the company that fought it.

 

Quite a difference in modern times;  the Fire Department of New York employs approximately 10,200 uniformed firefighters and over 3,940 uniformed EMTs, paramedics, and Fire Inspectors and the department serves more than 8 million residents within a 320 square mile area.  The FDNY’s motto is “New York’s Bravest” and the same could be said of many modern day city fire departments.

 

 

The pictures show KraftWork‘s tribute to firefighters – the Firehouse –  and it’s available at the 5th Anniversary round of FaMESHed which runs to the end of the month.

 

There’s 2 versions in the pack:-

KraftWork Central Fire Station (all) – LI 293 – copy/modify
KraftWork Central Fire Station (only main building) – LI 216 – copy/modify

The main building has two floors, scripted doors at the front and a working side door entrance.  It’s a beautifully observed, highly detailed building and would suit city sims and roleplay areas.

In the Back Row of the Movies

with 2 comments

 

“Smoochin’ in the back row
Of the movies on a Saturday night with you
We could stay forever, you and I
We could stay forever, you and I
Huggin’ and a kissin’ in the back row of the movies” ~ The Drifters

That’s a catchy song and a real feel good one, too!  It’s all to illustrate KraftWork‘s fabulous new “Palace Movie Theater”.

You’ll need 160 LI to rez this beauty.  You get a wonderful Art Deco styled building, complete with foyer concessions counter and seating. The seats have animations for male and female. 5 each if I remember rightly.  Just choose the seat you want, and right click to sit.

 

 

There are two versions included.  One is “no modify” so that if you’ve got it on a town sim, nobody can mess with the settings. In this version, the doors open automatically.  The other version is “modify” and you can change the size and textures, including the screen, even unlink parts. However, the doors will remain open so you’ll need to add a door script to get them to move.

The Movie Screen is just a prim. If you are using the modify version, you can delete it and add any movie/TV device you want so it’s nice and versatile.  The Movie Marquee (above the concession counter): here is a full perm texture so you can add your own words to it. Open and save this texture to your computer, edit with any software you have, save it and upload back to Second Life® and apply to the face of the marquee sign while editing “select face”.

 

 

When you drag your “Palace Movie Theater” from your Inventory to the ground, it will appear a few metres above it so you have some space to move it to the desirable place. Don’t panic like I did thinking, well where is it matey, just look up!

The price for this unique and original Mesh item is L$795 and it’s available at the current edition of the Draftsman Event, which runs to May 15th.
