Firstly I want to give you a nice Marketplace update. I have added a complete range of scenery design products consisting of bamboos, plants, shrubs, lotus and lily pads, ground covers, you name it. All these products are available on the Kitely Marketplace as from today with export permissions and will appear on Second Life Marketplace later this week. In total we are talking about 136 Japanese themed products including variations! I am sure there will be a great demand for scenery and landscaping products especially in Open Sim based grids. Come and get them all!
Next, I am very proud to announce the very first work has been done to recreate the once famous Edo Japanese Hosoi regions. I have been very busy with the rough layout of the new 16 region plot. Yes, you are reading this right;-) 16 regions! The total land mass will be roughly 4 islands that will be connected by bridges and ferries. One of those connecting bridges is already in place and at the moment I am working on the new Sakura Island. Below you see a few screenshots to give you an impression what to expect. All of this would not be possible without the great work of Kitely and its staff. Thank you, Ilan, Oren, for that!
Remember, we will be in need of a community to be able to start our role play game at the new location. If you are interested to join, please contact Amiryu Hosoi in Kitely or in Second Life for instructions. I would be very happy if some of the "old Hosoi community" could contact me to talk about bringing over the old groups to Kitely. Unfortunately I am not a member of the specific groups anymore thus for me it will be difficult. If anyone feels he or she could help, I would greatly appreciate this.
The pictures below are just rough sketches and the scenery will be updated and refined while the work undergoes updates and tweaks;-)
