Breakfast with Dancer

Breakfast with Dancer

Just like a real horse, my companion RealHorse™, Dancer is checking out the toast rack. We’ll be wiping jam off his whiskers.

Our launch of the ~LP~ RealHorse™ was smooth as silk with no bugs or issues. The testers caught six ‘unplanned features’ and enabled us to launch cleanly with no issues in our actual avatar.

The ~LP~ team makes me proud.

Announcing the Release of the RealHorse™

LP-RealHorse-comingSoon.JPG

We are pleased to announce the release of the ~LP~ RealHorse™ horse breed avatars on Friday, November 20, 2015 at 10 am SLT.

Designed to be simple and easy to use, the RealHorse™ comes with a full AO, gesture HUD, riding system, texture HUDs for additional coat options, and functional genitalia.

The ~LP~ RealHorse™ features accurate gaits and animations; a riding system with synced rider/horse animations; and a fluid mesh that moves so well, you will swear the horse has muscles moving under its skin. In early releases, RL equestrians who have ridden this horse uniformly agree that riding one ‘feels like being in the saddle in real life.’

The ~LP~ RealHorse™ is a highly detailed mesh quad avatar with both breed and gender differentiation already built in. Prior horse avatars provided a generic “horse” that had to be modified in order to best simulate a desired breed characteristic. As a result, much of the unrigged tack previously had to be made loosely to fit the generic shapes as well as all of their potential shape changes.

The ~LP~ RealHorse™ is starting with Arabian mare and stallion avatars and Cleveland Bay mare and stallion avatars. Each has unique body curves and sizes. All of our rigged tack and accessories flow with those different shapes in body-hugging tightness. That’s right – much of the tack and accessories is rigged to accentuate the realism and flow of these beautiful horses.

To ensure the best experience, we highly recommend you leave the basic shape alone. Don’t touch it. We have other breeds in the works that will be available in the not-too-distant future. And each will have its very own, tightly fitting, free-flowing tack and accessories.

Specific Permissions of the parts of the ~LP~ RealHorse™:

  •  All Scripting and Animations are Copy/No Modify/No Transfer.
  •  Eyelids, bouncing balls & cock are Copy/Mod
  •  Gesture HUD, Genital HUDs, AO, Riding System are Copy/Mod
  •  Body/Ears/Eyes are Copy/No Modify/No Transfer.
  •  Base shape & alpha layer: Copy/No Modify/No Transfer.

The avatar retails for $4499 for each breed/gender. We will be releasing the Cleveland Bay Mare, Cleveland Bay Stallion, Arabian Mare and Arabian Stallion.

It Takes a Team to Make a Really Real Horse…Thank You

After 10 long months of work, we are about ready to release our long-awaited ~LP~ RealHorse™ horse breed avatars. An avatar of this quality does not happen through the efforts of one person.  It takes a talented, focused, driven team to gestate such a large project and then  bring it to life.

While I am the face and voice of the ~Ladies’ Pleasure~ team, I am by no means the most important player, just the most visible one. All of our team contributed their unique skills and helped make the RealHorse™ the ‘really real’ experience that it is.  I want to thank the exceptional ~LP~ development team for their hard work and acknowledge them for their creative genius in creating the RealHorse™ horse breed avatars.

The ~LP~ Team:

Cherry Lastchance – Animations, detail checking
Emmalette – Mesh modeling and rigging, synced rider animations, and much more
Dancer Inglewood – Holder of the wrench, critical review, and tester
Honey Heart – Project management, artwork, documentation, dispenser of mints, and whatever else needed doing

Additional thank you’s to others who have helped along the way:

For helping with the base coats, Greko Thorne (thank you so much!);
For helping us (finally) get the specular right, Kaya Angel;
For graciously responding to our cries for help again, and again, and again, Liz Venenbaum;
For their great Blender plug-in, many wonderful tutorials, and continued support, Gaia Clary and the Avastar team;
For his consistently excellent basic vehicle and ao scripting, Tapple Gao;
For additional scripting and greatly needed script hand-holding, Zaphod Plutonian.

Our official test team, who beat on the project to get the undesired features out:

Ascar, Cherry, Dancer, Emmalette, Eri, Lexi

All credit and plaudits for this wonderful avatar should go to my team. All errors and mistakes are my responsibility.

Thank you again, folks. You’re the best.
