Today’s post is unique, because for the first time, I’m showing household items. With the Home Expo a day away, I have been given the opportunity to have a look at the reBourne Multiscene product. It is the ultimate in skybox scenery with over 100 scenes to choose from if you buy the premium version, or you can buy a small pack that includes the rezzer and scenery picker that has 11 different scenes based on a theme. There are 11 themes altogether.
Because I was limited in prims and a bit short on time, I used the skybox from Barnsworth Anubis in creating the home setting from which to view the reBourne Multiscene package. This little house is well laid out with ample space in all the rooms.
View from the bedroom. The easel in the kitchen is by Boogers. You can actually draw on them. Furniture is from What Next. The Burbury blanket with the Tic Tac Toe game on it is a gift for buying the premium version of the Multiscene Panaramic Vew.
Looking out into the Dutch landscape from my bay window you can see the way in which the Multiscene Panoramic view provides a realistic feel to the skybox in which you are in. Looking at this picture, I almost have to do a double take to figure out I’m looking at a computer generated wold and not a real house. The Multiscene has 11 sound variations that last for 90 seconds and are looped together to give a complete overall immersion into the environment. You can have birds chirping, crickets singing, and the sound of an urban sprawl, depending on the choice you make from the controller. The Multiscene can also be resized in three configurations, 30m, 45m and 64m so that it can fit a variety of skybox sizes.
Is it real, or is it SL? I almost have to wonder.
Well, what if you tire of living in Holland? How about a large city? The Multiscene has a scene for such things.
Such a neat view with the apartments. Makes you feel like you’re right downtown in the heat of the action.
Tired of the city life? You can leave it all at the click of a button! Next Stop Tahiti!
These plants have to go…
The Multiscene completely surrounds the building, so you can if you wanted put up a regular house in the middle of the Multiscene, you would have a complete surround of scenery no matter what direction you look, including up.
A rocky overhang meets the sky viewable from inside the skybox. Completely surrounded by 360 degrees of scene.
Sometimes you bring a little of yourself into SL, be it a picture, something in your profile or what have you. When I started decorating this house I thought about what kind of artwork would look good on the walls, and I decided to use a local artist from my home town. Greg Curnoe.
Three pieces of art grace the walls by Greg Curnoe, a celebrated Canadian artist from London Ontario.
Greg Curnoe was an avid cyclist, and a lot of his work revolves around the bicycle. Wheels and full bicycles being what he loved to do pictures of. Sadly in 1992, Greg was on a club cycling tour with the London Centennial Riders when he was struck by a car and killed. However he left a legacy of beautiful art, and I’m glad I was able to find some to put up in this skybox.
Greg Curnoe’s famous painting of his Mariposa bicycle. These bikes were custom built for Greg in Toronto Ontario.
I love the Multiscene. It’s a wonderful addition to any skybox and well worth the Lindens. Be sure to check out a demonstration of this product at Home & Garden Expo 2013!!
