InWorldz is developing

January 28, 2013

It is time for an update as there has been some key changes at InWorldz with some huge milestones met in the last month. The big one for many residents is that PhysX is here and has been rolled out on the main grid. Everyone is all chatter about it. Also the other bit of tech news is that Mesh is enabled on the Beta grid.
avatar choice
The other night InWorldz reached 70,000 users. When I joined it was sitting at 6,000 so I feel I have watched this world grow. One of the things that first dismayed me was that the first avatar newbies were given was such a Ruth! Now new residents have a much better choice. Of course from this point on you can customise all you want and  the InWorldz Mentors are around to help new avatars and there are many freebies to assist with the transition too.

To my regulars I have been a very tardy blogger lately. My excuse is that it is summer. I live on the East coast of Australia and to be honest it has been a hot dry season with most of the east coast on alert with high fire danger days. North of me there is floods. South of me their has been fires. Hopefully I will return to regular updates soon.

christmas hunt gifts

My seasonal photo is made up of some of the many prizes to be found on the Third Annual Christmas Treasure Hunt 2012. The hunt will be continue until the 7th of January 2013 so you still have loads of time to do it.

What is the starting point?  Cozumal (103, 61, 37) or, once in InWorldz type Teal Etzel into search under the people tab and look in my profile picks for a start point landmark.


Magic Rezzing deck from Luna Bliss as hunt gift

December 17, 2012

I have been a bit tardy with my hunt gift unpacking as family visitors means that I am not InWorldz as much but with this post I want to highlight this fantastic hunt gift thanks to Luna Bliss. I said there are some really good prizes in the Annual Christmas Treasure Hunt and this is another one.

relaxing in gardens
Well what is it? Here I am relaxing at the Old Mill Garden. This garden deck of 4 prims contains all sorts of items that you can rezz and enjoy. In this deck there are 30 animations for singles, couples and groups,7 types of food and drinks, 5 types of lights, 12 sounds and 9 types atmospheric effects. You can set the mood for all sorts of social interactions.

box label
The box label for the Magic Rezzing deck gives you an indication of what it contains and I want to say they are all well built and designed items. Thanks goes out to Luna Bliss. When you land at her spot on the hunt do take some time out to see the gardens she is building here at InWorldz.

The  Third Annual Christmas Treasure Hunt 2012 is held on the InWorldz grid and continues until the 7th of January 2013. So you still have plenty of time over the holidays to pick up some wonderful gifts

Where does it start?
The first chest is at Cozumal (103, 61, 37) but the easiest way is to look at the picks in my profile (Teal Etzel). I have the starting point listed there, and you can teleport directly to the first chest in the hunt


The hunt is spinning me round and round

Christmas hunt gift spinning topNow what is my avatar doing sitting on this big spinning top? I have been having loads of fun.

I have been unpacking more of the the hunt gifts and these huge spinning tops are thanks to the generosity of Taika Wirsing. Actually I got totally sidetracked with this one as I ended playing then ‘arranging’ them in the fun park at the Old Mill!

They spin and have some funny sit animations in them. I like them so much I am going to keep them as permanent feature of my Fun Park at Mille.  (I am not telling where to find them, there is a hint list in the first chest and that is more than enough of a spoiler!)

There are some really good prizes in the Third Annual Christmas Treasure Hunt 2012 which will be continue until the 7th of January 2013.

Where does it start? At Cozumal (103, 61, 37) or the easiest way is to take a peek at my profile (Teal Etzel) and see the picks as I have the start point there and you can teleport directly.

As usual happy hunting from The Hunt Club!


Gallery Freenote is relocating to InWorldz

December 11, 2012

Many members of the SL arts community know Teal Freenote and her Gallery. Today on her blog Teal has announced she is relocating to InWorldz.
In her blog post announcing the move Teal Freenote says

“It seems ridiculous to keep maintaining such an expensive space when all my creative energy is being funneled on another grid for much less expense and much more creative freedom.”

Teal Freenote describes her work as virtual sculpture that concentrates on symbolic and dream imagery. Teal also works with virtual photography.

So when you visit InWorldz add Gallery Freenote to your tour of art establishments to see.

To get there, on the map it is Dreamwalker with co-ordinates of 204/148/24 or In search under people tab type in Teal Freenote and you will find a teleport link under her picks.
