Demon Studio - Iconica Horns Now Available

Iconica are very large Captial style horns that represent a bit of a departure for me, in that they are actually beautifully detailed, but very simple.
No metal or blades or gems etc. Just straight up, get the point horns.
But with a little bit of a twist.

As you can see, these are Omega and ADV ready. Where the horns join the head, there is a flesh sleeve that wraps on to the horn, and this sleeve is actually SL UV compatible with the Avatars head, to match up.
Out of the box they work with Violet Studios ADV appliers for skin, and they also include a simple HUD you can wear that will, with the Omega Installer from Omega that costs 99L$ and works with all Violet Studios Products like Fusion etc, you can use Omega appliers too.

If you dont want that though, I have also included a second version which doesnt need skin appliers but uses bones instead.
You get the usual suspects though. Regular or Tones Versions, Materials enhanced, U3 ready with 140+ textures to play with for the bone, and the Materials applier system ready.

And they are just 200L$...

Redesigning the Violet Studios Sims.

As you will have noticed I have been busy working on redeveloping our sims of late, compressing the structure down so it is easier to see everything we do.

As a result, several store have now moved to new locations, some minor moves, some major.

As you will have seen LTX opened a new high tech store on the Deaths Head sim. I can now confirm this is the new LTX main store, and the original store is now decomissioned.

Verotic clothing has also moved to the space next to the new LTX store. I had thought about another unit, but as Verotic clothing will have new additions coming, I though it best to have some space available.

If you hadnt noticed, Beholder moved to Deaths Head quite some time back, now located on the ground level under the Cyber Studio (which also moved).

Next to Beholder is the updated Headmaster Store which is almost in the same place, but down a level.

To finish up, is an ongoing move.
Those who have had a quick fly around the sim will have noticed other changes too, specifically the introduction of mall spaces on the lower level, and the move Viicous Tattoos in to the main bowl area.
These spaces are specifically to take renters from the Busty Village / All Meshed Up mall and the transfer of stores to the new Bowl is in progress.
Once the original mall has been cleared, I will be removing it completely.

As a result of these changes, the access to Sveller Labs has been changed, and while a little sad to say it as it took so long to build, the Caldera Project on Pheadra has been removed.
Dont worry though - the Deaths Head side is still open and I wasnt going to delete the Worlds End pub, which has now moved to the Deaths Head Sim part of Caldera.

I have updated the Landmarks on the side so you can get to where you are going.

Demon Studio - Koras & Urban Demon Boots Version 4

When I first released the Koras and Urban Demon Boots back in 2009, I had no idea where Violet Studios was going or how the technology on SL would change.
Today I am pleased to introduce the Mark 4 versions and what a difference 6 years makes.

Urban Demon has progressed over the years from its original Prim version then to Rigged Mesh and picking up features and improvements along the way.
Version 4 of the Urban Demon Boots however move to a whole new level.
Firstly you get Fitted Mesh, which means now you get full shape file control. That said I have included other improvements. There are two sizes in the pack – Regular and Wide, which can be used by male or female avatars and all depend on your desired shape. In addition, you get Tartarus Generation hoof bones offering a far more realistic design.
I am also happy to say the Unrigged Version 1 boots have now disappeared from the pack ... finally. In their place are full mesh Version 4 boots, unrigged and easily scales up or down.
As with the Version 3 models you get all 19 LTX textures however for this one, you get another change with the Forza generation of leather textures. You get 10 textures, which are far more toned down and more realistic for leather.
As with the Tartarus philosophy though you also get Materials support throughout. With Latex and Leather textures beautifully finished on the specular and normals mapping to give realistic light reflection and surface textures, and with metal and bone control from the Unlimited 3 materials system, this generation of the Urban demon is simply gorgeous.

Moving over to Koras, this presented a far more indepth redesign.
The original Koras boots were beautiful and sadly as I progressed to the Rigged Mesh versions, down the road, I lost my way a little with them. Specifically the older design was toned down, and for reasons related to Rigging, they got ... wider.
When it came to the Version 4 Koras boots, I knew I wanted to go down the Fitted Mesh route, and as such the development work done on the Rigged versions was technically a dead end.
So, the new boots were started from scratch and to get there, I went right back to the beginning with the Koras Prim versions.
Finessed over many months Koras 4 has been tested in depth, and offers a beautiful design, rich with detail and shape. As always fitted mesh gives you full shape file control, adapting to your avatar.
You also get two version – Slim and Wide so you can pick and choose your style.
There is full control over your options, and via the Koras Set up hud, you can choose to remove the straps and laces if you want to.
As with Urban Demon you get all 19 LTX texture and the 10 Forza Leather options, with full Materials support creating a stunning look.

Finally... If you bought the Urban Demon 2, or Koras 2 Boots previously, these are a free update - just wear the updater that came in the original sales folder to get your copy.
