Sometime shortly, Second Life will allow a new type of object on the grid. These objects are called mesh & are 3-D creations made entirely outside of SL, using external 3D tools & brought inworld.
What will The LOLO be doing with mesh?
The LOLO Pet Shop is actively developing some new mesh animals for Second Life that we will release soon after this feature goes live across the grid. This new SL development of mesh is exciting for us -- we will be able to offer you even better looking animals. Since working outside of SL allows for faster design processes -- we can also release new generations of animals more quickly to you!
Our new Second Life animals will be packed full of even more fun & more animated too.
They will also be less prims! Yay!
If you've been following us you've seen our earlier mesh bird & we are now working on some new foxes for SL. Check 'em out!
Can you believe that fox is one prim in body? I almost can't believe it myself... I am used to SL having prim counts MUCH higher for any organic shapes. Final release will be more than 1 prim per fox (we still got some mesh magic to add in), but you get the idea... all new release of Second Life animals from The LOLO Pet Shop will be very lightweight on your land!
Cool! A fox is laying in my lap, while two arctic breed foxes watch the scene. This snapshot was taken on the beta grid, since mesh is not fully on the usual Second Life grid yet... but watch for these foxes coming soon to a sim near you!
- Will The LOLO Pet Shop start charging L$ for virtual animal food or care needs?
- Does The LOLO Pet Shop charge L$ for virtual animal food or care needs?
No, there is no such extra charges & we have no plans to ever start charging! People are asking me lots lately if LOLO animals have costs & needs, asking if they are pay-to-feed, or pay-to-care... or if they might be that way in future.
Although some animal sellers in Second Life now charge customers this way, we will just keep releasing our new pets & animals with no costs after purchase.
There is quite simply no cost for us to keep your animals alive in SL, so we pass along this savings to our customers.
Simple to care for:
LOLO animals are very simple to care for. You can just place on your land & enjoy as they go about their behaviors. These animals know how to take care of themselves, so they are okay to survive on their own without dying or getting lost... they are fun & independent intelligent creatures.
The Future of Second Life Pets:
Over the last five years we've been serving the residents of Second Life, there has been many virtual animals released from The LOLO Pet Shop.
What animals would you like to see from us next?
What fun things would you like to see your animals do in Second Life?
The future is full of possibilities!
