Halloween Gifts

Now that Halloween is almost here, it's time to put out the Z&A Halloween gifts again. If you're in need of a prop or two, or even an outfit, for a Halloween bash, and especially something with a little sprinkle of RLV, you need to head down to our main store and slap these boards:

Also don't forget that this weekend is the final weekend of The Femdom Hunt III. If you're intending to do the hunt, and pick up 60+ gifts from around the grid (two of which are Z&A builds -- the one in our main store and the one at Raven Park), and you've not started yet, this is going to be your last chance. If you've not grabbed Z&A's gift yet you really should think about heading down and doing so, it is related to recent product releases and you don't want to miss out.


Avatar Radar v1.6

It's been a while since we've mentioned the Avatar Radar here on the blog. Despite the lack of mention Antony has been tinkering with it on and off since the initial release (it's turned into a bit of a pet project for him -- something to tinker with when he's not busy on major projects) and, today, v1.6 has been released.

The main improvements, since the last announcement, include things like improved workings of the menus, the ability to configure the vertical scale used to position the avatars above the map, an access mode that lets you share the menu with others and some general improvements to the robustness of the detection of avatars and the way the avatar "bugs" clean themselves up.

As always, this is a free product. Just pop down to our main store to get a copy.

While you're there, don't forget that The Femdom Hunt III is now on and this means there is a gift hidden in the store somewhere (it also means there is a gift hidden on Raven Park and at around 60 other locations around the grid). Also, while you're at the main store, why not pop up to our new vehicle test track and try out our new range of RLV-enabled vehicles? They're all free to rez and play on so you can see if you like them before you even think about shopping for one.


Announcing: Z&A Vehicles

It might seem that, here at Z&A, we've been rather quiet over the past few months. To some degree we have been. One reason is that we've been working hard on organising The Femdom Hunt III (kicks off today). But that's not the only reason.

For the past couple or so months we've been working on a new product range. As with last year's release of the cells and the creation of the cell store we're launching with a whole range to choose from. There are 10 vehicles available right now from the main store and from the marketplace. In addition to the 10 new vehicles there are also 10 rezzer versions (these include a copy of the vehicle and a public rezzer that you can use to give access to the vehicle -- perfect if you want to provide a bit of fun for visitors to your parcel or region).

The new vehicles are as follows:

Each vehicle has an RLV-enabled sit point, some where the "victim" is the driver, some where the "victim" is a passenger. When locked on by RLV the other passengers get to control their access to their inventory, their rights to use IMs, etc. They also have the option to strip the victim.

All vehicles have copy permission (so you don't have to worry about losing it) and some are mesh. Because they are copy, rather than transfer, we have a no refund policy. But don't worry, we've thought about that. We don't want anyone paying for a product they've not tried. With this in mind we've created the Z&A Test Track:

We invite everyone to come along and use this facility to try out the vehicles. Just walk down the steps, round the front of the landing area, and touch the rez board for any vehicle you wish to try. You'll also find sale boards there for the vehicles and the rezzer versions.

If you have any questions about the vehicles please don't hesitate to drop Antony Fairport or Zardia Avindar a line and we'll do our best to answer all we can.


Coming Soon! II

Something's changed about the new thing that turned up in the shop last week. Apparently one of the question marks has gone missing, and now and again something keeps popping up in its place...

Surely soon must mean real soon?


Coming Soon!

Zardia and Antony have had a bit of a move-around in the main store. The last set of products to be released, which were sat on the "new" display stand, have been moved into the shop proper.

And this has turned up in its place:

What could it be? How soon is soon? Does it have something to do with The Femdom Hunt III?
