A Blank Sheet of Paper
Is it possible to build the remains of a city with less than 7000 prims? Let’s find out!
I cleared most of the Hanamachi sim, leaving just the Secret Bunker, so that I could build something like a ruined city. Here you see my minimal progress thus far. I’m determined but not especially hopeful. So far I’ve spend more time making textures than actually building, or so it feels. The problem with building old/abandoned things is that the nice clean textures you find about the place don’t really work for it, so you need to at least grunge them up a bit. As you can see the place is mostly empty at the moment. I have all these plans, you see. Plans!
Hadn’t been in Metro for a while, realised I didn’t really want the Japanese style place with all nice plants and stuff. Whatever, most of it is in inventory in case I ever change my mind or need a project. (The textures, btw, are available in the Chavland Shopping sim.) There is the vague possibility that I might add another sim next week if I still feel the need. They are pretty cheap even hosted. Certainly it’s not in the triple figures like in SL. It amazes me that there’s so many islands in SL, it really does.
Must focus on not doing details until I have basic structures in place. That’s always a tricky bit.
