Market Watch/High Regard Meeroo Preserve

A wee while since my last post but here I am better late than never 😉

While scamming notices for a place to put my newly born Giant 14.0 Meeroo up for auction I stumbled across the High Regard Auction Notice.  This is a new auction place that will be holding its first ever event today 17th June at 10.00am SL (slurl provided) http://slurl.com/secondlife/High%20Regard/197/81/60.

High Regard Grande Entrance

The building itself is very spacious coated in a beautiful soft beige cream adapting cool grey backwalls for highlight. It boasts 30 comfortable leather seats situated in front of the delicate stone podiums (as below)…

High Regard Auction Area

One thing for me that really did stand out above all was the Special Boards, personally this was a first for me and they are very unique and different from that around that is usually seen. They really would have to be special Meeroos because you cannot miss the full information sketched across the palebackground.

Extra Special Podium

To the back section of the mighty hall you will find an Exhibition Gallery which is full of beautiful stunning pictures of our most beloved Meeroos (you just have to take a peek!). Lanier Matova said (quote) “We wanted to do something different here, we are going to have alot of breeding studies etc”. So you see this is not only an Auction House but hopefully a growing community of fellow minded meeroo fanatical people who wish to share their breeding tips and ideas with others as again Lanier Matova said (quote) “We aren’t going to be people who breed an Amber and don’t tell anyone the secret, but instead work together to learn the breeding trends”.

Exhibition Hall for Meeroos

So why don’t you come along and lets start this community rolling, bring your meeroos,  bring your photos of your beloved meeroos and bring your friends for some in house action to see some Magnificent Meeroos!

The owner Geoffrey Steuart and his Manager Lanier Matova are hoping to have a great turn out for this OPENING DAY!

Stay Spirited 😉

KittyCatS | Relay For Life Kittys

On May 14th KittyCatS released a special Kitty for the Relay for Life event, benefiting the American Cancer Society.  The new Kitty is the Season of Hope collection, which is themed for the seasons – Winter, Spring, Summer and Autumn.  The artwork is original and of the high quality that has become the norm with KittyCatS.  The Kitty’s will be available until July 17 and there are 4 new eye colours being released in the collection and the Seasons of Hope KittyCatS can carry one of the 4 New Eye Colors in the collection as their secondary Eye genes.

Seasons of Hope KittyCatS

There is also a new breed and/or coat as part of this release which can only be discovered through breeding.  The new traits will be in normal starter packs after the Relay for Life event.  The Kittys come with their own matching special collars and include two week’s worth of food and an exclusive set of specially designed texture change furniture made by Barnesworth Anubis.  The specials are random but boxes are trans and there will be a swap held at the KittyCatS store today at noon SLT.

Big Kittys on Display

There are a number of places you can pick up the Kitty, and you will find those in the info nc available in the group.  The display area is very impressive though and well worth going to take a look at.

Breedable Events | It’s All Happening!

Well it seems the US is waking from it’s hibernation due to the warmer weather and no doubt also due to the upheaval our world has been experiencing lately.  The Grid is springing with many great events.  Daniel Voyager has listed some of them, and I’m sure there are many more.  I know there is a cool Furry hunt on at the moment, Cover My Furry Butt Hunt!

You will find Petable at the Fantasy Faire, with a very cute special turtle in a lovely store they have set up there.  The Rovees have a Fairy Princess and Shining Knight that are very sweet also.  Matthew Anthony is named as a Sponsor for the Sim Petable can be found on, Exotic Worlds, although I suspect the whole company was the sponsor.  Great Job Petable!  There is an endless array of wonderful things to look at (and buy)  there, but make sure you stop at Petable first, before the lag kills you.

Petable at the Fantasy Faire 2011

Find Petable….

Project Fur has also began and you will find both Ozimals and KittyCatS supporting this event.  There are also a heap of other great vendors with lots of irresistible things to buy (well I thought so anyway).

Tancho Sanke Special

Ozimals have the Tancho Sanke special release Bunny.  While KittyCatS have 2 specials, one you will find at their main store, but you will find both available at the Project Fur sim.

 

Hope and Compassion Kittys

Ozimals and KittyCatS are next to each other at Project Fur.

And that’s just some of the current Event support breedables are involved with at the moment, not to mention the many breedables that have supported fundraising for Japan in many other various  ways recently.  I haven’t even started on the latest news, and releases that are/have currently happening.  I’m exhausted just thinking about it…..

Ozimals | Project FUR Japan

Ozimals has created another bunny to help raise money for victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. This time the proceeds will be benefiting the homeless animals left behind by this disaster.

Ozimals has teamed up with Project FUR Japan organized by Blazin Aubret and Tristan Careless. For further details about Project FUR Japan please read their blog at http://projectfurjapan.wordpress.com/2011/03/21/welcome-to-project-fur-japan/

For details about the special Ozimals bunny please read http://projectfurjapan.wordpress.com/2011/03/30/ozimals-has-some-special-bunnies-for-project-fur-japan/.  As of this writing there is no date yet released for the start of this event, the availability of this bunny or its pricing.

* For those of you who searched every inch of the Ozimals regions (you know who you are) after Aeron’s “something fishy at Ozimals” comment in the Ozimals Orations and Updates group chat, well now you know he was probably hinting at this koi inspired bunny.

SL Events | I <3 SL

There are some things I love about SL but never get to mention here.  So seeing as I am trying desperately to procrastinate on another assignment.  I thought I would take the time to mention some of them.  Earlier today I had someone ask me when I was going to create a breedable and for some odd reason said Breedable Tracy’s would be popular.  Well yaya but I seriously doubt that, when I discovered the wonderfully talented Skye Galaxy had performed on Metaverse I was reminded of that comment because I believe there would be a long lineup to purchase a breedable version of Skye.  I rarely get the time to go to his concerts but when I do I come away feeling so relaxed (or stunned from crashing in the middle of a relaxed state, lol).  So I just had to share the link with you.  You don’t listen to Skye Galaxy’s music, you feel it, a little like hovering between heaven and earth his music is dream-like yet tangible.  Search for Skye Galaxy inworld and join his group to find out when and where he is performing it is worth a visit, even only once.

Taken Long Ago at JD's Auction Concert

Definitely another big fav is machinima.  And I just love the recent Pop Art Lab Machinima Expo 2011 winner.

 

UK Blogger Joshue Habana also has a great Machinima site, Machinima View.

I also love Flickr.  I love poses and taking pics in SL and there are so many amazing SL artists on Flickr, I wouldn’t even know where to start.  I was awestruck the other day to discover my lovely Suri has been quietly making poses!  They are pretty impressive too.  No wonder I never hear from her.  Sigh.

I’d love to hear some of the things our readers love about SL if anyone would like to comment.

Now back to the usual programming.  (Please note this is not a strictly PG post).

Fund Relief for NZ

Don't Miss Out!

There has been a fund relief effort started in SL to help those in need after the massive earthquake which hit the region recently. There is already a blog up and running and it will go from 26th Feb to the 5th March.

As I’m sure you all know, a devastating earthquake hit Christchurch NZ for the second time in 6 months, this time causing much more damage and loss of life.
Along with some other Second Lifers, I’m organizing a fundraiser to benefit those affected by this tragedy.
Currently we have space from Jori Walter and a small group of creators willing to donate items.

There are alot of quality items available with 100% of proceeds going directly to Garden City Relief.  I particularly noticed alot of poses available for those poselovers (like me) out there.  Just make sure you wear your shopping outfit and save your fellowman from the lag monster.

Oh if you are wondering about the picture, it’s a just because picture, just because I unearthed this bizarrely cool outfit and found an NZ sim.

Meeroos | Best of SL Magazine

Breedables in the headlines!  Extra extra read all about it, Meeroos in Best of SL Magazine!  It appears the not yet released Meeroos will be featured on the cover on Best of SL Magazine for March.  Frolic Mills Show featured Levio Serenity, the main scriptor from Meeroos today in a live interview and attempt to get a few questions the frenzy followings of Meeroos had to ask.  Levio Serenity is one of three co-owners of Meeroos, he has partnered with Catherine Farspire and Chimeric Crescendo to bring you these amazing works that you all know as Meeroos.

Levio went on to explain a little bit about how the Meeroos will operate and a few basic features.  The meeroos will imitate real genetics with a dominant recessive relationship.  The meeroos will have different types such as artic and pine, each type having several variations of coats within that type of meeroo.  Each type of meeroo will eat a different type of food, therefor you will need to be selective on which types you breed or have seperate food types available as a pine meeroo may not share the same food bowl as an arctic meeroo. It is unclear if all types will be based on real world regions or a mixture of fantasy as well.  They will be able to pass on traits such as eyes, hair styles, tails, and “parts.”  What do you mean “parts?”  Well.. the meeroos will be 13-17 prims and have a chance to obtain legendary parts.  At this time no further information on these legendary parts is available but one can assume they will be body pieces that are extremely rare.  Also, Levio stated that they have implemented a stunning 100 plus eye colors!  The meeroos will have several mini games that will directly influence your meeroo and your status in the game that will be implemented with the meeroos to learn more about this game check out our previous blog post about The Wonderful World of Meeroos. The game aspect will include a HUD, this will allow you to check several features of your meeroo.  This HUD will show you stats such a rarity of the selected meeroo traits on a rating scale of 1 to 6, 1 being common and 6 being rare.  Rarity?  What might that suggest?  Perhaps these legendary parts?  Perhaps special variations of coat markings?  We don’t quite know yet!  Levio stated that as you level up you will have a greater chance to obtain these rare traits.  So how long will it take for my meeroo to breed?  Well it will take 10 days till maturity and 10 days for a breeding cycle.  Why so long?  Levio expressed great concern in making everyone’s ability to play equally in this game a priority.  Both the cycle length and the bonus to mini games are a way of helping the smaller breeders keep up with mass breeders, as this will require actual interaction on the behalf of the breeder/owner.  Some meeroos may not be attracted to certain other meeroos and may have more difficulty breeding together, this is not impossible to breed the two [except in the case of inbreeding or breeding with a family member, which will never result in a breeding], but simply may require more attention and effort.  You will be able to breed with your friends meeroos!  A meeroo will produce a single offspring, there is no chance of twins.  Also, no inbreeding will be allowed… more information on how this will be prevented isn’t quite clear yet.  Stats will be a little more complex than a simple 0-100% scale… Levio refused to released these exact details, but I can assure you it sparked an interest in the interview!  Baby meeroos will be born in a nest. You meeroo will be able to be taken to inventory for three days before he/she will run away.  Once your meeroo is gone, you can’t get it back, however, Levio mentioned of the possibility of implementing a special whistle which will call your meeroo back to you.

Ready for a couple random teasers?  It’s possible that aquatic meeroos will be able to swim.  You will be able to play mini games with others to get player points.  Sometime after release it’s possible that they will consider making a meeroo avatar.  The meeroos will have an abnormally high mutation chance.  Mini games will help your meeroo’s stats to aid in a more desirable breeding. Your can feed your friends meeroos.  The team is aiming for under 8 scripts… these scripts are designed to sense when an avatar is within a certain range and will set your meeroo to an idle mode when no one is near.  Idle mode will still allow your meeroo to eat and breed.  The tree stump’s scripts will auto detect sim dilation to shut off unnecessary scripts in the meeroo temporarily until someone is close again.

Alright enough already! When can we get our paws on them?!  No dates are being released as the team doesn’t wish to set a date that would be unrealistic or simply delayed continuously.  The only date mentioned is that Levio and the team hope that all features will be ready and implemented into the meeroo by March.  Beta testing will not hold back on features, all features that are to be available in the release will be available immediately in beta.  How much will they cost?  The team isn’t quite sure yet and hasn’t set prices as of yet.

Any features or information published in this blog is subject to change at any given time, it is after all still in development.  Sorry for the lack of pictures, the lag at the interview was quite mean and wouldn’t allow me to get a picture without crashing.

Should you wish to stay up to date on the meeroos check out their official website at http://www.worldofmeeroos.com also the Real Life store for Meeroos items went live just today!  You can purchase a variety of things for yourself in RL now! Check it out at http://store.worldofmeeroos.com/

The Raven Sparklefairy Gown

monica Outlander was nice enough to send me a sample of this very special gown which is being sold at the EaHH Event Hall with 100% donation towards the Premiers Fund.  The Raven Sparklefairy gown is spectacular and totally fantastical, but for some reason as soon as I saw this wheat while I was on the ProPosers hunt I knew it was the background for me.
