I was so impressed by the work that C3rb3rus had done in creating his new urban science fiction experience, 2077, that I went back today to take some video of the view from his penthouse suite.
It wasn’t just me that was impressed. Ebbe Altberg, the CEO of Linden Lab (the makers of Sansar), joined us on our exclusive first tour of the new experience yesterday, and he was very impressed too! He basically said, “Whatever you need to make this even better, C3rb3rus, let me know!” When you’ve got the CEO’s attention like this, you know you’ve made it!
As I already said in my earlier blogpost, the entire experience has the look and feel of something from the movies Blade Runner or The Fifth Element:
I don’t know about you, but I would totally want to rent this apartment! If you haven’t visited Sansar yet, this is the best reason I can think of to come do so!
You can install the Sansar software client, if you don’t already have it, at https://www.sansar.com/download. And then you can visit 2077 by searching for “2077” in the Sansar Atlas, or just by clicking this link: 2077. See you in-world!
Two very experienced Marvelous Designer users named MD-Angel and Vintorix are sharing their avatar clothing creation expertise with us on the discussions in the Fashion channel of the official Sansar Discord server. This information is much appreciated by newbie users of MD, like me!
One thing that I did not know until today, is that MD has modular pattern pieces stored in a library, which you can use as a starting point for your own garments. I was playing around with these today, just to see what I could make. The first thing I tried was a men’s dress shirt. Here is what my men’s white (untextured) dress shirt looked like on the first try. It still needs a lot of work to look better, but it’s a very promising start! It would have taken me HOURS of working my way up the learning curve to try and build such a nice-looking buttoned shirt collar on my own.
The second garment I tried to make was an oversize women’s V-neck T-shirt, and it turned out so well that I am placing it for sale on the Sansar Store! Here’s what it looks like on Vanity Fair (see picture, below, taken in my own experience, Ryan’s Garden). Here’s a link to the T-shirt listed for sale on the Sansar Store. I’ve priced it at S$5, like my other clothing in the Store (except for a few freebies). I don’t think it’s fair to charge too much money for items made while I am still learning how to use the Marvelous Designer software properly. I also want people to buy my clothes, so I am deliberately keeping my prices affordable! I get such a thrill whenever I make s sale, and whenever I see someone wearing a piece of clothing that I made 🙂
I would like to thank, from the bottom of my heart, the very talented and experienced Marvelous Designer creators like MD-Angel and Vintorix, who are freely sharing these valuable tips and techniques with us! These people are working hard, for no pay, to provide truly helpful advice for the entire fledgling fashion designer community in Sansar, so please be sure to thank them when you meet them in-world or on the Discord channels!
