Is it just me?

Or is the Fantasies Attic Freebies page broken? When I try to access it, I get this:

145 Table './dsaat0_free/whos_online' is marked as crashed and should be repaired
[delete from whos_online where time_last_click < '1406820183']

The rest of the site works, though.

Yay! They’re back — and with a contact form too.

Also, the page index has been changed from “freebies” to “freezone.” Broke all my links. 😥 I think I have them all changed over in the lists, but please let me know if I’ve missed one.

Dial Morph Character: Inez V4

Inez V4, for DS and Poser


Usage: Okay for commercial and personal use.

Info: A Latina morph for V4 inspired by a video game poster. 😛 I was aiming for a character who’s cute, not pinup-girl perfect, and also looks like she’s not taking any crap from whomever/whatever.

Inez is scaled down, her head’s scaled up, her legs are a bit shorter, and her chest a tad wider than the default V4. Morph Follower balks some re: the chest scaling, so you’ll probably need to do manual adjustments for that area of her body. Edited to add that there’s extra shaping to her forehead area, so a few tweaks to hair props will likely be necessary, especially with fitted CR2 hairs. All that said: Separate presets are included for Body+Head and just the head.

Dial morph character only; textures, hair, clothing, props, poses, expressions, etc. not included.

Required: V4 Morphs ++, Stephanie Petite 4, and CDI’s Faerime.

Credits: Elite Ariana, Twin Fair Hair, Aussie Girl, and the sword from Lady of the Lake. The example expressions are all from Just A Girl S4 (though one might be from Oh That Look V4.) Below, there’s Eirene Hair, Slide3D V4 Bodysuit, the overlay from Sisterhood Skin on Ariana, and a background from 2012.

Vector Graphics Tip

I was chatting with a friend the other day and we were discussing graphics and file formats in Paint Shop Pro — which she uses exclusively — and I was surprised to learn she didn’t know it’s possible to convert .ai files to .pdf and read them in PSP as well as PS.

Yup; just change the .ai file extension to .pdf and you’re good to go. The .pdf file acts pretty much like an .eps file, so it’s possible to scale it up or down without a loss of quality.

Not all .ai files can be converted to .pdf, but most of them will work.

More adventures with concession stands

Still puttering away on the market stand texture project. It’s good to have lots of props, both free and commercial, though I’m missing the odd prop here and there. For instance, I had a hard time finding something that would work as a simple cafeteria tray.

Snack Stand on the Beach

Snack Stand on the Promenade

The coffee pot, cash register, fridge, and plate stacks are from several ironman13 products, the fruit bowl is from Exnem, and the background is from a set called Standing on the Edge (all at Renderosity.) The condiment holder was one of those Poser World limited time freebies thing. The rest are freebies.

Not sure yet what to do with the large poster-like prop (Inception8’s True Blood poster freebie at DeviantArt.) Probably should add a menu, tho with a different background. I’m also not sure about keeping the menu sign on the stand. I might try a sign board instead. Most Digital Creations has a free one.

Might do something with the small market stand too. Maybe a coffee shop. Or a kind of beach souvenir shop that sells t-shirts, hats, and sunglasses.
