September is “Back to School” month, so here’s a school/college-themed listing.
Environments: Rooms, Halls, and Hangouts
Office Room || Bloody Hospital Room || Floors-n-Walls || Lecture Hall || Gym, with props || Gymnasium || Scoreboards || Wrestling Set || School Rooftop
Notes: The Office Room has a matching window shade prop. The Bloody Hospital Room can be textured to look like a classroom (unless of course you want Zombie High/University.) Floors-n-Walls can also be textured to look like a generic classroom. Chris Cox has a free basketball court for the gymnasium; download it here. A few athletic-related props are also listed in the Summer Solstice #02 list.
Props: Classroom Basics
School Daze || Classroom Chair || UniLab Table and Chairs || Classroom Desk and Chair (DS4 only) || Kindergarten Table and Chairs || Kindergarten Shelves || Desk and Chair Meeting Room || Cafeteria Props || Office Desk #01 || Office Desk #02 || Office Desk #03 || Office Chair || Office Cabinet #01 / #02 || Shelving Unit
Notes: The desk and chairs from School Daze are K4-sized; I scale them up to ~150% for teens and young adults. The lab table and chair set is for DS4, but comes with an object file for Poser users. There’s also a desk/chair included with a V4 pose set listed below. The cafeteria props include the food counters as well as the room environment (adjust tiling ratios in DS.)
Props: Classroom, Hall, Library, Office
Labware || Science Equipment || Microscope and Petri Dish || Hospital Cart || Whiteboard || Office Clock || Bookshelf || Library Bookcase (about halfway down page) || Office Partition || Lockers #01 || Lockers #02 (toward top of page) || Locker Room Set || Stapler || Office Documents || Pen Holder || Photo Mug || M.O.I Mug || Copier || Wall Art || Poster Prop || Lighting Props
Notes: The Science Equipment props are separate; delete what’s not needed, unparent, and move around to suit your needs. Ditto for the Office Documents and Pen Holder props. The Library Bookcase is UV-mapped and can be textured. Classrooms and offices need stuff on the walls; these props are easy to texture. Playground equipment is covered in the Summer Solstice #01 list.
Props: Backpacks, Books, and School Supplies
SP3 Backpack || Backpack || Brat Pack K4 || Geometry Book || Binder Notebook || Notebook Textures || Notepad & Pencil || Pencil (page 9) || Ballpoint Pen || Crayons || Colorful Stationary #01 / #02
Notes: With a little work, the SP3 backpack can be fitted to other figures. The Notepad and Pencil are obj files and the notepad comes with a clean paper texture. The crayons and box are all separate props.
Notebook PC || Laptop || Smart Tablet || Tablet || Smartphone || iPud
Notes: Standard stuff for high school and college students.
M4 Dribble Poses || Kids at School K4 || Always A Man M4 || V4 Just A Girl VI || V4 Desk Pose Set (desk and chair included) || V4 The Office || M4V4 Coffee Break Standing Poses || Coffee Mug and Poses for V4 || Typing V4
Notes: More M4 basketball poses here, here, and here. The V4 Desk Pose Set includes the desk and chair. In general, JLK/Structure/Portrait Studio’s poses are helpful, as are EClark’s sets — especially the V4 Partial Pose Kit and M4 Partial Pose Kit — and i13’s FreePosesDOTNet.
Misc Textures, Fonts, Etc.
Chalkboard Kit || Chalkboard Textures || Eraser Font || Homemade Apple Font || Chalkboard Font || Stapled Construction Paper Alphabet || Construction Paper Layer Styles || Crayon Layer Styles || Seamless Paper Textures || Notebook Textures || Vector Notebook Papers || Seamless Notebook Textures || Vector Post-It Notes & Pins || Vector Rulers || Pencil Image Textures || Manila Folder Textures || Vector Corkboard || Corkboard Texture
Notes: The chalkboard textures are kind of small, but they should still work okay for props. All the fonts can be used for commercial purposes. The paper alphabet would be useful classroom decor for the youngest students, and although the layer styles are for Photoshop, they come with a base texture non-PS users could tinker with. Everything else listed is pretty much texturing-related.
Oh, and here’s an online Embossed Label Generator for all your faux labeling needs:
School Classroom || The Classroom || The Playschool || East Park High Hallways || East Park High Lobby || Skool Daze for Parkside High Recess || Nerd & Preppie || Corridors || School Bus
Notes: I own School Classroom, Nerd & Preppie, East Park Hall, East Park Lobby, Skool Daze, and Corridors. The School Classroom comes with props like backpacks, school books, notebooks, etc. The Nerd & Preppie product is an outfit for V4/A4, but it also has the school hallway and book props. I’m sure there are more out there, but this is what I’ve either bought or wishlisted. Edited to add: And now I own the School Bus; lots of greenpots school stuff on sale for 70% at Renderosity through Aug. 25!
