Fun for the Whole Family?

Posted 2007.02.13 1.00 in Computers/Internet/Technology by Stephanie

Well, just in time for Valentine’s day, the guillotine is ready. As my friend Kim commented, ‘How romantic’. 🙂

Making an avatar’s head disappear is quite problematic and it’s still not perfect… at the moment, the head vanishes but if they’re wearing primmy hair, the hair stays put. We’ll have to put more work into that.

For now though it’s pretty good, with the falling blade, slicing chopping sound, and gushing blood. And a head rezzes in the bucket.

We’ll work out how to vanish primmy hair later. For now, here’s a picture – not just a picture, but our sales poster, and a link to the shop!

Ok I get to post this one because I’m the one who had to pose for all the stupid pictures and do all the painful tests in the design and development phases.

And let me tell you — I hear the next big effort is going to be a Valentines’ Day Guillotine — I am Not looking forward to testing that!

This one wasn’t so bad. The sound effects are grating, but otherwise it just tingles a lot.

Bzzzt! Bzzzt!

..Sort of a sharp pain, in my back?

More disturbing macabre fun in SecondLife 🙂

This one was pretty easy to script and pose, but more challenging to texture… getting the blood to soak into the wood while leaving the woodgrain visible, was tricky – especialy up at the point where the blood is darker.

Yeah, pretty twisted. But darkly humourous, I think.
