[ba] paris penthouse 2.0

New for Collabor88 August 2015 we have the [ba] paris penthouse 2.0! This is a mesh version of one of my oldest skyboxes. The new skybox features more three dimensional detailing and richer texturing than the original. The windows have been exchanged for Juliette style balconies with functioning doors and flower boxes. The backdrop is now simple three dimensional buildings and trees instead of a flat picture providing much more depth than the original. This is a skybox and the exterior of the structure is largely unfinished but not visible from the interior.

Scripted features include an easy to use central control for access, windows, doors, and built in  working fireplace.

The skybox only comes in at 33 prim impact (mesh), and a 14x16 meter footprint.  The backdrop and scenery adds 26 more prim impact and an area of 64x64 meters. 

Like most of my other houses it is easy to customize walls and floors with tinting or using your own textures!

The [ba]  paris penthouse 2.0 will be available at the Collabor88 main store through September 6th at a discounted price. After September 6th it will be in the main store and on the marketplace at full price.

[ba] plaza store

Over the past few years I have got a lot of requests for my own main store. The store build I use is still prim (because I am too lazy to swap it out!) but I have made a very very similar new mesh shop for sale! 

The new [ba] plaza store features clean lined classic architecture with a spacious and versatile interior. Like all my mesh prefabs it is easy to re-color, re-texture and personalize for your own needs. The basic textures are also provided (copy only) so you can easily add new walls or parts to your store that match should you need to. 


The store is perfectly suited for a quarter sim, coming in at 104x104 meters and only 477 prim impact. The angled design makes it fit perfectly in a quartered sim, but can also be rotated 45 degrees to fit on a half sim with room for landscaping and display bot in front and back thanks to its unique shape. 

A demo has been set up in the sky so you can see the store as it comes. The build can be purchased at the demo location, in the main store, or on the marketplace!
