Now available : Large selection of ULTRA LOW PRIM SCULPTY autumn trees. Linden/Lime trees 20m, 30m and 40m in three harmonious autumn colours. Aspen saplings and mature with three diffrent autumn colours in every box. Also ultra low prim sculpty Horse Chestnut trees, sapling and young in 6 different autumn colours.

So why did we create so many versions and so many colours of every tree ? We do it so that when you landscape with Heart botanicals you get a more natural organic look immediately. That's why we always include different stages of growth in the boxed versions of our plants, trees and flowers.

Screenshots from a little bit of landscaping we did at the New England sims. It was fun as we don't usually get to do much landscaping and the New England sims are so beautifully terraformed that is was surprisingly easy to get an immediate autumn forest effect. The palette of autumn colours made a lovely change from summer greens.

Please click the pics to see the full size versions of the Secondlife screenshots of Heart autumn trees in situ at the New England sailing sims

The Heart Garden Centre with Second Life Shadows

Oh my goodness !! Secondlife™ shadows ...... "What a difference a shadow makes". Shadows transform the Secondlife™ virtual world into a far more compelling and intimate experience. Shadows add body and volume to everything enabling you to READ and SEE the world with your RL eyes. There was always something wierd and unsubstantial about a world without shadows and lighting. Shadows are so much a part of our 'Real Life' looking experience .... they are essential for all 3D virtual worlds

How to turn on shadows in Secondlife™
1. Make sure you have the latest version of Secondlife ™ Client
2. Go to Advanced Menu
3. Go to Debug Settings
4. Select RenderUseFBO and set it to TRUE
5. Select RenderDeferred and set it to TRUE
Now use eyes to LOOK and see a trasformed Secondlife !
Of course shadows work best with Heart Botanicals :-))
