History & sources:

DannyGrun drew the wing outlines from which I made the wing texture.  The skin, other textures, the mesh and the sculpt I made entirely.

The scripts are lightly modded from 7Seas Fish Developer’s Kit which will be provided in the class and will work exactly the same for adding to their system.

This class is being taught for the first time.

About the Sources:

I started trying to make a drinking bird February 9, 2009, but couldn’t figure out how to move it and it stuck in my inventory ever since.  Then in January 2016 Shermira Atlass brought a sample that she had made and offered it as a class … So I merged the two together, made meshes, textures and worked on the script, and here you have it… The drinking bird!!

Hearts Go Round

A long time ago, in an SL sim far away, Jezebele Dagger asked me to write her a music box class… well in those days that meant lots of prims, and three scripts for students to work with (2010-style) and it was an adorable class, with three fishies chasing each other around a round cylinder prim which rotated only the texture… About 3 years ago I taught a “Rotating Ballerina Music Box” class where we spun a single prim with a texture on it… Fast forward to 2016 – mesh is everything – this time we’re spinning a new mesh heart on a new mesh base … and making a mesh key spin!  Special trick for getting the rotating objects back to zero again!!

About the Sources

The sound files are from Freesound.org user Pogotron, although they’re easier to find on YouTube. I modified the sounds to upload to SL.  Wikipedia  tells us that “Teddy Bears’ Picnic” is a song consisting of a melody by American composer John Walter Bratton, written in 1907.”  Since it was published before 1923 in the U.S. it’s automatically public domain.

Candy Hearts are OLD!! Your great grandparents probably got green and blue tongues too!  Wikipedia for the win again: Oliver R. Chase invented a machine in 1847 to cut lozenges from wafer candy, similar to Necco Wafers, and started a candy factory.  Daniel Chase, Oliver’s brother, began printing sayings on the candy in 1866. He designed a machine that was able to press on the candy similar to a stamp. The candy was often used for weddings since the candies had witty saying such as: “Married in pink, he will take a drink”, “Married in White, you have chosen right”, and “Married in Satin, Love will not be lasting”.
