Raven Park dance this Saturday

This Saturday it's time for another Raven Park dance and, this time around, given the recent announcement of the new Doctor, we thought we'd have some fun with a pretty relevant topic:


Simple enough, yeah? Let's enjoy a SciFi theme again, while at the same time celebrating the female characters to be found there. We'd love it if you could dress up (or not -- it's never required) and come enjoy the musical selection of Miss Eve for a couple of hours.

Here's the details:

Date: Saturday July 22nd
Time: 3pm to 5pm SLT
Where: Raven Park
Music by: Eve Terr

Z&A Vehicle (Kidnap Van)

Today I'm releasing the first of the "refits" of my older line of RLV-enabled vehicles. Given that the previous two releases have been vans of some sort (the Transport Van and the Delivery Van) it seemed to make sense to revamp the original Z&A RLV van. The name has changed from simply "Van" to "Kidnap Van", best reflecting what it was designed for and fitting in with the naming of the other two vans.


A number of other tweaks and changes have taken place. As well as using the new vehicle system (so using far fewer scripts and so script memory) it's also been updated with nice new projector lights.


The lights can, of course, be turned on and off, because sometimes you'll be wanting to take your captive for a nice daytime drive.


While the headlights alone do cast plenty of light for when you do need to see what you're doing at night...


...the roof mounted floodlights can be turned on as well to give an extra boost:



The vehicle itself provides seating for a driver and three normal passengers. In the back there's a nice secure cage for a RLV-controlled "victim".





All in all I think it's a perfect vehicle for a bit of urban/kidnap role play.





For those who wish to make the vehicle available for public use on their region, there's a public rezzer version too:



As well as including the normal vehicle (there's no need to buy both if you want a personal vehicle and a public rezzer version) it also includes a rezzer object that will rez copies of the vehicle that anyone can drive -- with a full clean-up system that ensures your region doesn't fill up with unwanted kidnap vans.

If you'd like to try the vehicle out, see what it looks like, see how it drives, etc, do feel free to pop down to the main store and head to the vehicle test area where you'll find a rezzer set up. As well as vendor boards in the main store you'll also find the vehicle and the rezzer for sale on the Second Life marketplace.

Z&A Vehicle (Delivery Van)

This is another new release based on the new Z&A vehicle system. Designed as a variation on that previous release, this is a delivery van; less about the official transport of convicted prisoners and more about the movement of personal property.


The van has seating for a driver and a single non-RLV controlled passenger. It also contains three crates in the back, each of which can hold an RLV-controlled victim.



The crates themselves are designed to make the experience of being locked in the vehicle quite claustrophobic; the camera angles are set tight inside the crates and the victims will be initially forced into mouselook mode. Those inside the crates also get to "enjoy" a good range of RLV restrictions, all of which can be controlled by the passenger or driver.

The vehicle itself has projector lights and doors that open and close, all under the control of the driver or non-RLV-controlled passenger.




For those who might wish to make the vehicle available for public use on their region, there is a public rezzer version too:

I think it will be the perfect prop for any form of urban/kidnap role play.

Evelock dance

Yesterday afternoon we gathered on the roof of Miss Eve's shop and helped her celebrate six years of Evelock being on the grid. You can find an album of photos from the party over on Google Photos. Here's some highlights:





















Many thanks to everyone who came along and helped Miss Eve celebrate Evelock's birthday, and to Miss Eve for sharing the event with us, for the gifts she gave us, and for the great music she played for us. Here's to next year's party!

Meanwhile... see you all back over on Raven Park in a couple of weeks time.

Raven Park dance this Saturday

This Saturday it's time for another Raven Park dance and, once again, we're leaving Raven Park itself for this dance and heading over to the Evelock store to celebrate the anniversary of Evelock opening a shop on the region as well as the 6th anniversary of Evelock opening for business.


Everyone is invited to come help Eve celebrate, and of course to enjoy her selection of tunes and everyone's company. Unlike previous Evelock shindigs, there is a theme this time, to quote Miss Eve's blog:
So the dress code is simple - dress like either a bitch or like a sweetheart. We can have fun guessing which is which!
Here's all the details:

Date: Saturday July 9th
Time: 3pm to 5pm SLT

Z&A Vehicle (Transport Van)

Over the years I've made a point of re-working and refreshing various product ranges. This process has happened with the core RLV furniture, the restraints and also the cells. All that was left to revisit was the RLV vehicles. In the past month this process has started to happen.

Rather than remake all of the vehicles in one go I decided I'd make a single new one to try out all the little changes I was making and, then, as time goes on, each of the older vehicles will get its own refresh and upgrade (existing customers will get updates).

One main wish drove the redevelopment of the vehicle system: a desire to be able to produce vehicles that have multiple RLV-controlled seats. Simply put: it'd be fun and cool to be able to lock a handful of people on a vehicle and cart them around. Today I'm releasing the first vehicle that uses the new script engine and which also uses this new ability to the full:


The Prisoner Transport Van allows for a driver and non-RLV controlled passenger, and up to six RLV-controlled prisoners in a cell area in the back.


A good range of RLV restrictions are provided, including options such as controlling the ability to interact with IMs, interact with the world around them, access inventory and even optionally speak.

The vehicle itself has projector-based headlights and opening/closing doors.




For those who might wish to make the vehicle available for public use on their region, there is a public rezzer version too:


As well as including the normal vehicle (there's no need to buy both if you want a personal vehicle and a public rezzer version) it also includes a rezzer object that will rez copies of the vehicle that anyone can drive -- with a full clean-up system that ensures your region doesn't fill up with unwanted transport vans.

I think it will be the perfect prop for any form of prison or custody role play.

Pose for illustration purposes only; it isn't part of the vehicle.

PS: For anyone wondering what the prison suit is that I'm wearing in the pictures, it's one of the range of convict jumpsuits made by Anna. There's also a dress version for anyone who might have a need for that.

Raven Park no theme dance

Yesterday afternoon we gathered in the Mansion ballroom to have a dance and a natter and to listen to a couple of hours of tunes selected by Miss Eve. Much fun was had (a large part of it being people recommending items to look at in the Steam sale because.... STEAM SALE!) and you can find a collection of photos from the event over on Google Photos.

Here's some highlights:














Many thanks to everyone who came along, and to Miss Eve for a wonderful musical selection. See you all in a couple of weeks!
