Weather System v2 
It's been a while since a last update, but meanwhile we've been very busy with developing a new version of the weather system.

So what does the v2 version got that the v1 version doesn't?

New weather effects:
1. blood rain, including special clouds, and blood on the ground

2. hellfire, including burning fires on the ground, flames from the sky and falling meteors

3. tornadoes

Improved weather effects:
1. Snow: the snowcover has been majorly improved using sculpted prims and now adds lot more coverage on large areas (still all without adding to prim-count of parcel)

2. Thunder & lightning: the lightning has been reworked and is now no longer showing weird artifacts, thunder sounds are much clearer
3. Rain: rain now has growing puddles and wet spots on the ground
4. Fog: fog now comes in multiple levels, from a morning ground mist to full fog

Improved interface:
1. A complete restyle, no more confusing 'on/off' switch, but much clearer
2. A HUD will now be available to control system. Initially within the sim, for the rezzed system, in future versions, allowing complete control of multiple systems spread over multiple sims
3. Rezzing control panel. When you don't need it, it's not there. Reducing the prim usage of the weathercontrol to a single prim.
4. Interface sounds

Backend support:
1. All systems register to a server backend, allowing you to in the future control all systems from one central place. Also this will be used to generate grid wide 'weather reports'

So, quite an update.
It will take a while before the whole thing has been finished, but i hope to have it finished before the holidays. ;)
People who bought the v1 version will have an easy option to upgrade to v2.

The Ghotik Mansion 
A week or so ago, Damani released a new prefab, the "Ghotik Mansion"

Based on old english manors, the ghotik mansion is a big 2 floor open dwelling, with archways and staircases.
The house is not made to be low prim or as a first house, a lot of time has been spent on adding little details.

New sound effects have been added, like the sound of stone when you step on the steps and stairs.

Also, this house is the first featuring complete autorezzing. I will add autorezzers to all multi-part houses in the coming period. The bigger ones will have priority in this though.

Damani featured on secondlife.com main page 
Since a while already, one of the rotating pictures, shown when going to the Second Life homepage has been the Damania sim.

By the way, if anybody recognizes her (or himself) as the angel shown in the picture, please send me a mail or comment. I'll put in a free damani roadster for the first who comes up with the avatar name ;)
