[RETIRED] Crystal Series

«Crystal Series» are my crystal items, created for adding light and color to your magical dreams. Right now, the following are available:

Crystal Fantasy Harp



Animated, musical harp. This harp is a cherished work, my personal variation from a RL model, respecting the style of the «Crystal Fantasy» series. You can choose among a total of 30 possible texture combinations, and it plays 5 classical harp songs.

Using your harp is pretty easy:
  • If you click the round base piece, a dialog menu will show, for selecting the new textures. First you'll choose the adornment colors, then a second menu will ask you for the base colors.
  • As soon as you sit, an animation playing the harp begins, but not the music. This allows you using it at live performing, or while listening at the stream at your home, without the music interfering.
  • If there's no music on, touch the strings, and a menu will show, letting you choose one from five classical harp pieces. Once the music begins, a particles effect surrounds you.
  • If there's music on, touch the strings again, and both music and particles will stop.


Crystal Living Room



The light may be set ON/OFF by clicking the lamp. The couch holds up to two avatars.

This set consists on:
  • One adornment gem (3 prims)
  • One couch (6 prims)
  • One crystal table (1 prim)
  • One crystal lamp (6 prims)
  • Two crystal seats (2 prims each)
  • One adornment "Crystal Tear (Abstract)" (2 prims)
  • One rug (1 prim)
  • One shelf (1 prim)
  • Two tulips in vase (2 prims each)


The Fractal Tree



Originally crafted from 165 primitives, then sculpted it to only 3 primitives. This is a decorative sculpted tree that you can copy around and build a glowing forest, or as a isolated one. It's also modify, because you could want to change size for different copies, or even texture each copy slightly differently. Don't forget to keep a copy of the original one before modifying it.


Musicbox (Living Art)



When you sit on the sphere, your avatar is posed as in the picture, the sphere begins spinning, particles are emitted and the music starts playing (first time it will need a few seconds for preloading). When you stand up, music and particles end. Also, being on the sphere, you can turn the music on/off just by clicking it.

Black Tulip

It was september, 12th, 2010, when I opened the store.

It took me half the day (including the time for some -long- interruptions), but I managed to completely rebuild the store: taking measures, requesting megaprims, creating some sculpted parts, texturing, setting the doors and finally, finishing all the work.

Since then, as my work teaching as well as RL allows me, I'm adding items. Welcome to my store: Black Tulip



Second floor is for friends. The third one is used by the "Class In A Box" packs (complete tutorials on building and scripting, plus other tools), animations and sounds, by now. I hope adding too scripts and building tools created by me.



The photo service is also presented in the store:



As well as the furniture section:



Welcome to "Black Tulip".

[DOC-SCULPT] Using your sculpt maps

Guide to use the sculpt maps you've purchased

  • How to use the sculpt maps
  • Ok, now I have applied the sculpt map. How do I texture it?
  • Broken sculpties? LOD settings


How to use the sculpt maps

New to building? Then follow this very simple guide to learn how to use your sculpt maps.

To use a sculpt map, you have to begin by making sure that you are in an area where it is allowed to rez. Then click the "Build" button from your viewer or, alternatively, click CTRL 4.

Now, click on the ground. This will rez a box (unless you had another shape selected from before.)

Right click on this box, and select the "Edit" option from the menu.
Click the "Object" tab from this window, and look at the parameters on the right side of this window.


You may see a drop-down menu labeled as "Building Block Type". Other viewers won't show but the pull down menu itself. Click the little arrow to open it, and then select "Sculpted". The right side of the "Edit" window will change, showing us the following: a "rainbow" texture and a few options below ("Mirror", "Inside-out" and the stitching type.)

This "rainbow texture" is what defines the shape for the sculpted prim, and it's called "the sculpt map." You will find sculpt maps that are not a "rainbow" but transparent. This is okay. Those sculpt maps are "alpha protected" but will work too.

You should click on that "rainbow." This will open a menu that will allow you to select a sculpt map from your inventory folder. You would select one of the sculpt maps you've acquired.

Check the samples provided to know how to fill in the rest of fields: "Mirror", "Inside-out" and the "Stitching type." Usually, you will have to worry only about the last one. All my sculpt maps specify which stitching type you should select in its name.

An example, if you see one of my sculpt maps named as:

[Black Tulip] Shelf 5 - Stitching_PLANE

that means that, for that specific sculpt map, you should select the stitching type "Plane" (or "Plane/none" for some viewers) on the "Edit window" under the "Stitching type" pull down menu.

Ok, now I have applied the sculpt map. How do I texture it?

Apart from the sculpt map itself, which defines the shape for the sculpted prim, we need also to apply a texture on the sculpted prim, as usual, under the "Texture" tab in the "Edit" window.

Some sculpties will need that you define a very specific number of repeats and offsets. Specially, those that have the stitching type "Plane."

At times, those repeats may go over 100. Some viewers won't allow you to type such a number over 100. So in order to help you, your purchase has also several scripts that will change the repeats for you, and after that they will self delete. If you find yourself in the situation of not being able to change the repeats over 100, by all means use the scripts. They won't cause any lag at all, as they get immediately deleted from the primitive after completing their task of changing the texture settings.

Those scripts are:

[Black Tulip] Change Repeats 4x256
    [Black Tulip] Change Repeats 4x128
    [Black Tulip] Change Repeats 2x256
    [Black Tulip] Change Repeats 2x128
    [Black Tulip] Change Repeats 1x256
    [Black Tulip] Change Repeats 1x128

Use the one that better suits your sculpties. Begin by trying out "[Black Tulip] Change Repeats 4x256" and if you don't like how those repeats look like, then try with less repeats.

Broken sculpties? LOD settings

If you see your furniture like "breaking" for you as you get further away from it, by changing your LOD settings should fix this problem for you.

For this, go to your "Advanced" menu (click CTRL ALT D if you don't have it -COMMAND key instead of CTRL for Mac-)
Then, scroll down to "Debug Settings..."

This opens a little window.
Type in it the following:

renderVolumeLODFactor

and then change the suggested value to 3 or 4.

Going over 4 won't make basically any difference and may be overkill if you don't own a powerful graphics card.
Set it to 3 in that case.

You will find also this text under the notecard "[Black Tulip] Broken Sculpties? LOD settings". Its purpose is for you having a notecard with a text ready so you can deliver it to your customers, explaining about the LOD settings.

I wish this information helps you in using sculpted prims in your creations.

[DOC-MESH] Ambient Occlusion Map? UV Layout? How to use them

Ambient Occlusion Map? UV Layout? How to use them


Your mesh package comes with "Ambient Occlusion" maps, and you don't what these gray scale images are for? You've never heard about the UV layout and don't know what the guide image is for?

Then continue reading.

TABLE OF CONTENTS



WHAT IS AN AMBIENT OCCLUSION MAP?

An ambient occlusion map, or also, a "shade" map, is a texture generated inside the modeling program used to create the mesh object. This texture has a specific characteristic: the pixels it shows are the shades cast by the object, when a source of light is added.

They are named, shortly, AO maps (AO map: Ambient Occlusion map).

Although SL's viewer is able to render this (V3 and FireStorm, at least), so objects have a more realistic appearance (not only we see the effects of lights, but now we can also see the shadows), it's a very high-consuming resources feature which not all people may have active all the time.

To emulate this effect, which really adds life to the furniture, the shade maps, or ambient occlusion maps, are used.
They contain the shadows, and "somehow", we have to add these shadows to the texture that we plan to apply on to an object.

How do we do this?
That's explained on the "HOW DO I USE THE AMBIENT OCCLUSION MAP?" section.


WHAT IS AN UV LAYOUT?

Unlike sculpt prims, mesh objects may have faces that don't use the full texture, but only the part of the texture delimited within the UV layout.

We understand here that an "UV layout" is a texture generated inside the modeling program used to create the mesh object, so it shows us the edges that delimit the faces of the mesh.

Its purpose is to give us a visual reference of where on the texture we have to paint.
You would use this in conjunction with the AO map. This is explained on the "HOW DO I USE THE UV LAYOUT?" section.


HOW DO I USE THE AMBIENT OCCLUSION MAP?

To use it, you need to:

  • Download the AO map to your computer.
  • Download the texture you wish to apply the shades on, to your computer.
  • Manipulate both textures within a graphics program that supports layers.
  • Upload back to SL the resulting texture.

Q: HOW DO I DOWNLOAD A TEXTURE FROM SL TO MY COMPUTER?

Depending of the viewer you have, this is done differently.

- Open your texture within SL, wait for it to load.

V1-Style viewers: File menu, "Save to disk" option.
V2-Style viewers: The texture window has a button on the bottom part that says "Save as TGA". Click and save.

In both cases, make sure you type the image extension (.tga for example) at the end.

Q: WHICH GRAPHIC PROGRAMS SUPPORT LAYERS?

The following list is not fully inclusive, but just some programs that you may use:

  • GIMP
  • PhotoShop
  • PSP
  • Krita

If you know of another program that supports layers, then that program is ok.

Now that we know how to download a texture from SL to our computer, and which program to use, let's outline the steps that we should follow. Every program has a different way to name the procedures, so please, consult the documentation of your program of choice to learn how to do this, if you already don't know how.

  • Open the texture you want to apply the shades on in your graphics program.
  • Open *AS LAYER* the *AO map*, *above* the texture.
  • Change the "layer mode" or "blending mode" of the *AO map layer* to Overlay, or Burn, or Grain Merge, or Multiply.
  • Experiment with the different blending modes as well as the opacity of the AO map layer before you decide which to apply.
  • Save as an image that contains the "merge" of the two layers.

IMPORTANT: If your texture should not contain transparent areas, make sure that you flatten it before saving. Do not save the alpha channel in this case!

  • Upload the new texture to SL.
  • Apply the resultant texture normally to your object.

When you do this, you have "baked" the shadows on the texture.
Some creators may offer, apart than the mesh kits with the AO maps, add-ons consisting of texture packs with shadows already baked that will fit the mesh perfectly.


HOW DO I USE THE UV LAYOUT?

To use it, you need to:

  • Download the UV layout to your computer.
  • Download the texture you wish to apply following the shape of the mesh, to your computer.
  • Manipulate both textures within a graphics program that supports layers.
  • Upload back to SL the resulting texture.

The questions "HOW DO I DOWNLOAD A TEXTURE FROM SL TO MY COMPUTER?" and "WHICH GRAPHIC PROGRAMS SUPPORT LAYERS?" have already been answered on the "HOW DO I USE THE AMBIENT OCCLUSION MAP?" section.

Now that we have the textures:

  • Open the texture you want to use along the surface of the mesh, according to the UV layout, in your graphics program.
  • Open *AS LAYER* the *UV layout*, *above* the texture and *lower the opacity* so you can see the lines and your work.
  • Manipulate the texture until you get an arrangement that satisfies you.
  • You may want to open *as layer* the *AO map*, *above* all the composition, to apply shadows.
  • Do not forget to HIDE THE VISIBILITY of the UV LAYOUT layer once you're finished! (or the lines will show on your mesh.)
  • Save as an image that contains the "merge" of all the layers you've used.

IMPORTANT: If your texture should not contain transparent areas, make sure that you flatten it before saving. Do not save the alpha channel in this case!

  • Upload the new texture to SL.
  • Apply the resultant texture normally to your object.


I wish this information helps you in using ambient occlusion maps and UV layouts for your mesh objects in your creations.

[DOC-MESH] Using your mesh objects

Using your Mesh Objects


When you're new to using mesh objects, there are a few important topics that you have to know about: how to show as the creator of your item, so people buying at your store recognize you as the creator, how to texture the mesh faces, and a note about resizing mesh objects. This short document covers those three points.

TABLE OF CONTENTS



HOW TO SHOW AS THE CREATOR OF YOUR ITEM

Unlike sculpted prims, mesh objects don't have a "mesh map" that you can apply on a prim that you've created.
Mesh objects are imported into SL as a piece that contains all the geometry information (plus some other important data), and the person uploading them shows as creator.

However, as a creator, you want that your creations show in your name, not mine.
What to do? This is actually easy.

You only have to link the mesh object to another prim that you have created, making sure that YOUR prim is the ROOT prim!
Remember: The root prim is the LAST prim you select before linking, and once the object is linked, it's outlined in YELLOW.

A simple cube can make it. And there you go: you now show as the creator of your item :-)


HOW TO TEXTURE THE MESH FACES

A mesh object may have up to 8 texturable faces, numbered from 0 to 7. The way you apply a texture is THE SAME as you apply a texture to any other face of any other prim.

  • Right click your mesh item. Click "Edit" from the menu that shows.
  • Go to the "Texture" tab.
  • Click "Select Face" from the options atop of the "Edit" window.
  • Now click on one of the faces of the mesh.
  • You will see the texture show on the "Texture" little square. You can use it exactly the same as you do with other prims. And, as with the other prims, you can also color, apply glow, transparency, etc... to EACH face of the mesh object.

My mesh objects try to assist you in knowing which each face is:

  • I have colored differently each face, so you quickly see where the faces are.
  • I have also textured them with a texture that shows the face NUMBER.

This number is important to know, for some scripts operate at face level, and you will have to provide them the right face number.

TIP: With "Select Face" checked, if you now:

  • Click on the face whose face number you want to know
  • Click at the same time the keys:

CTRL ALT SHIFT T

You will receive in local/nearby chat, or in a little popup/alert window, the number of the face you have selected.


ABOUT RESIZING MESH OBJECTS

As you have noticed, the ad of the product says "approximated LI" instead of just "LI". Why this?
Because of technical reasons, the Land Impact of mesh objects *may increase* as you resize the object.

For example, if you have a LI 0.5 object, and you resize it just a little bit, the LI may not change at all, but if you resize it to double the size, it *may* have the LI raise to 1, and if you raise it to the max size of a prim (currently 64x64x64 m³ as of June 2013), it may have the LI raise to 4, or to 7, or more...

Normally, you will use the mesh objects in the same size the model provides, but keep this in mind if you decide to resize big :-)

For more information on mesh, you may want to check the following links:

Mesh, in the SL wiki
Calculating Land Impact
A guide explaining about Land Impact and the Physics Type


I wish this information helps you in using mesh objects in your creations.

Scripts

By acquiring any script package, you agree to:

  • If a script is supplied in full permissions state, you have to set it as NO MODIFY for NEXT OWNER. In any case, also, use the script/s included in your own productions only AFTER having set its permissions for NEXT OWNER to NO COPY or NO TRANSFER (detailed instructions about how to do all this follow).
  • NOT give away any of the scripts contained in this box under any circumstances.

The script/s you purchase are EXCLUSIVELY to be used in the items you sell/gift: you are responsible for any misuse.

How to change the permissions correctly?


The quickest way is to change them in your inventory, so you have them ready to drop in your items.

To do this, right click the script you want to set permissions for next owner, and click the "Properties" window.
This opens a window where you will see a line at bottom saying:

Next owner can:
[ ] Modify [ ] Copy [ ] Resell/Give away

By checking those marks we ALLOW what the next owner can do. By leaving them empty, we're restricting what next owner can do.

NOTE: Resell/Give away is what, in short, is generally referred to as TRANSFER.

If your build is COPY/NO TRANSFER, you should adjust the permissions for next owner of the main script this way:

copy/no modify/no transfer

If your build is NO COPY/TRANSFER, you should adjust the permissions for next owner of the main script this way:

no copy/no modify/transfer

Use an alt to check the permissions always.

Contact me to help you check them if you have any doubt about this!
It's very important to protect creators rights. By doing it you're also protecting your own investment.

I'm more than happy to help you on this topic, should you have any doubts about it.

The best way to protect against this is to take care of it immediately after purchase:

  1. After unpacking the poses and animations into your inventory, please locate the folder where the animation(s) is/are located and right click to choose "Properties".
  2. Uncheck either "Copy" or "Resell/Give Away", depending on what permissions most of your products are transferred or sold with. Of course, you will be able to change the permissions later if you need to, but if you have them set from the moment you unpack, you will never forget to set them later.
  3. Repeat this for EACH Black Tulip Animation you have purchased or received.

Thank you for your help in keeping Black Tulip Animations safe from unscrupulous freebie distributors and illegal resellers. I hope you enjoy them, and that they help bring your creations to life. Please feel free to contact me, Auryn Beorn, if you have any questions about the animations or this license agreement.

LAST UPDATE: 2013-03-24

By purchasing my «Class in a Box», you're purchasing carefully elaborated supplies, most of them without perms restrictions, plus detailed, informative notes and/or books with instructions and explanations about the topic. Some of these classes were taught from 2010 June to 2012 September while I was at the Builder's Brewery, and others are completely new.

You're agreeing with these conditions when you purchase any of my «Class in a Box» items:

  • All the notes, scripts and other supplies made by me are not for resale or being given away.
  • You can use and modify my scripts/other supplies in your own builds, and sell your builds with them included (see note below).
  • You are not allowed to use my scripts/other supplies in the boxes to give your own classes.
  • You can't use my class notes/books, nor parts of them, for you giving your own classes.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you use the scripts in your builds/kits, ALWAYS set the permissions for next owner, for them, to NO MODIFY *AND* either NO COPY or NO TRANSFER. Also, if you use the textures, sculpt maps, sounds, animations, mesh in your builds, set them to NO COPY, or to NO TRANSFER.
