Paku-paku-paku-paku



Unfortunately I can't read the listing, so I don't know if they accept World of Warcraft gold for the rent. Perhaps they prefer Sims money? Or pac-dots?

Okay, Second Life Realty is going WAY too far now.

Or are they ...?

when I have to start real estate shopping for my avatars I know it's gone just a bit overboard!

The architects I used to work didn't believe in gravity. Apparently they're not alone. The other render has floating trees! Check your shadows people! If they're several inches away from the object, fix it and render again. >.> It's a pet peeve of mine.

Hey, finally a use for my millions of Second Life "Linden Dollars". :D

Why is the ceiling reflective?

I read a little Norwegian, and the listing isn't very enlightening. I thought there would be something in it about, oh, what the heck they were thinking in drawing pictures?

If the building isn't done yet, I wonder if I can buy/rent with money I haven't earned yet.

I am amused that this virtual space appears to be furnished by virtual IKEA. I mean, I'm not dissing IKEA here (if you saw my living room you'd know I have no business dissing IKEA). I just think if I were making up virtual furniture and could therefore have anything I wanted, IKEA might not be what I'd go for. Or if it was, I'd at least go for the more FUN items from IKEA. I mean, doesn't this picture need a purple chair and a lime green table, with one of those wavy or bulbous or otherwise oddly-shaped lamps?

@7Seas re: the reflective ceiling.

I'd say they were attempting the Fresnel effect, but then the walls would be reflective too. It'd still be stupid since the Fresnel effect only effects the paint's specularity (glossy-ness) not its reflectivity.

More likely someone wanted a glossy material and forgot that glossy materials default to a mid range reflectivity.

This building is not yet completed. Year of construction 2008, but it's not finished yet. Or at least it wasn't on October 27th, when the listing was posted. (I am Norwegian and hence can read the listing ... :-)
