No, it's not a texture HUD... This one will rezz poseballs so you can have fun anywhere!
Brand new animations in both items, and sounds!
Remember that, like the walls, you can/should make this box transparent and place it anywhere (instructions inside). They HUD only needs attaching!

This one was a special request for my dear friend Ed. While I am not fond of gender-labeling poses, there's some value on highlighting the focus. This hammock comes packed with +400 animations tailored around MaleOnMale poses.

Uber: hop://playground.darkheartsos.com:8002/Darkhearts Boutiques/389/368/23
NEW: This circular/pallet bed comes packed with +500 animations, some decor, and HUNDREDS of textures.
I have spent a good amount of time making sure you get all the versatility and can change the texture of each piece of the set individually, pillow to pillow!

Aurora Starchild: @sodasullivan - didn't you want textures!? There you go 21 per each of the 6 pillows, 13 for each of the 4 throws lol 5 days ago
My favourite out of the latest 3 new items. Comobo of stand alone gaming chair with really steamy animations, as well as a fully linked set of the same chair animations + additional ones on the station itself.
Comes packed with hundred of textures as well, and of course - materials! (amazing material layers on this one, by the way).

Prepare for some notification spam! First new item is a set of two new urban-styled barstool.
As per the new update en additional work on the new items+review, comes with a texture HUD and materials.
Great looking alternative to the two other type of barstools we have at the store (also different set of animations).

Out new, a new chaise focused on threesomes. 490 animations and all possible combinations: FM FF MM FFM MMF FFF & duo pegging FMF.
Includes [AV] select, and HUD with all textures - as well as materials. I have also replaced the usual box for a add-able unpacker.
Uber: hop://playground.darkheartsos.com:8002/Darkhearts Boutiques/381/373/23

Sodasullivan: *googles "duo pegging" and swallows my gum. That is a LOT of animations I will likely never use, but the chaise looks SO great I have already found a home for it in the Park. 12 days ago
Okay, this one goes out to @sodasullivan who keeps moaning about me only bringing alcohol. So some Hazelnut Coffee it is...and a 'Hidden' wine cellar.
Both items dispense drinks with hold/drink animations: Cellar 2 different ones.
Cellar frame is scripted so it moves and hides the drinks! Pourover dripping is scripted too.
All include bumpiness and shine layers and values.

Sodasullivan: Thank goodness. I thought I was going to have to start a virtual 12-step program. Seriously though, these look beautiful. Thank you for the hard work you put into everything. If anyone has not shopped... 12 days ago
Not dead! Taken a bit to get back to next step at Starchild Shoppe: furniture review. During the first months the goal was to make available as much as I could. Now it's time to refine, some based on your feedback, it will be a slow process, but Float and Mattress are done!:
- Bumpiness and shine layers now included.
- Permissions have been reviewed so they are Copy+Mod
- Wear props have been reviewed with Matthew Stevenson's fix so they rotate properly.
- Includes a HUD, and I have added the remaining 15 textures.
The updated items will also get their vendor updated, so just click on the screen for those (rather than the usual GET button).
hop://playground.darkheartsos.com:8002/Darkhearts%20Boutiq...

Sodasullivan: Yay for adding materials! I honestly do not understand why so many creators do not bother with this simple process. It is fairly easy to do and adds so much benefit. and if you have not been to Starch... 14 days ago
New drink item at Starchild Shoppe. Board and decor champs mimosa glasses both dispense a wearable, hold+drink+animated smaller glass via prop. Bubbles animated too.
Comes with 2 hold+drink poses (initially Male Female, but just renamed them to Pose 1 and 2)

Hi folks - if someone hasn't tried @valerieluv0 's rental system, please do. Amazing stuff... and she is super supportive.

For some, it seems to be sometime tougher to be kind behind pixels. Our values and standards should not change, just because there isn't an immediate and apparent accountability to what we do or say. Be kind.

[About Chelsea’s Point]
Chelsea’s Point is the [work-in-progress] result of the Darkheart’s Playground vision on a VIP residential home region, and Brandy Darkheart’s aim to offer a high-end designed home option.
It is also the labour of creativity and love (and frustration!) of Anael Starchild, who crystallises this vision in a residential region with furnished homes with fully landscaped surrounds.
[What is different about Chelsea’s Point?]
Darkheart’s Playground already offer free land to all grid member, and parcels with higher prim allowance to VIP members who support the grid through its Patreon tiers.
Many of us do however come from virtual worlds where there are designer homes and parcels for those who want the perks of a fully furnished home integrated into a landscape, without having to go through ordeal of landscaping of furnishing it themselves!
People who have been there also know that designer sims or home in other virtual words have a waiting list, and a custom ones goes for around 800$!
Chelsea’s Point offer a holistic cohesive designed blended across each parcel. Each home is fully integrated into the landscape – parcelling only happened AFTER the design was ready.
[Why ‘work-in-progress’?]
The full scope of Chelsea’s Point is a 4x4, that is…16 ‘sims’. While it might not be sound like much in OpenSimulator, the level of detail has been matched to other virtual worlds where the focus is at a ‘sim’ level.
First Phase is now ready, and we wanted to make it available as we continue landscaping the rest of the region.
[How can I rent a home?]
Any DH VIP member can rent a home at Chelsea’s Point – check out our tiers at Patreon! Once subscribed, please contact @Anael Starchild in-world.
For the initial first 2 weeks VIPs who do not own a residential region (i.e. tiers of 5$ or 10$) will take priority – this is to ensure that we priorities members who might subscribe for access to them.
[What are the ‘specs’ of the homes?]
Each home is decorated differently, while keeping the overall design of the region and it surroundings. As such the parcels might vary.
[What are the particular conditions?]
Homes are rented AS IS: i.e. With everything that is included. New furniture can be added indoors, or outdoors if it doesn’t conflict with the overall design of the region. Pre-existing furniture might be replaced via contact with Anael Starchild (this is to ensure that the home can be ‘brought back’ to its original design if rental expires, and new renters can enjoy it ‘as it was’)
Rental doesn’t need to be renewed – it lasts for as long as the VIP subscription does.
Skyboxes are allowed, at a reasonable height (above 2,500 meters).
All renters, and other VIP member, can enjoy the ‘Chelsea’s Point Commons’open area.
[Next design steps]
>>>Design outline: The ‘southern’ part of Chelsea’s Point (left and right of current development) will be Phase II – and it will follow the same ‘style’ of landscaping as the current developed area. More modern to the right, more suburban to the left. Phase III will continue up to the north with a lakeside area. Further phases will continue up to the mountain range that will have a small village at its bottom.
>>>>Early ‘bookings’: If you are a VIP member, and have a vision about your ideal home style, that you think would fit within Chelsea’s Point overall design, we can take ‘advance concepts/bookings’ to design it for you and include you in the process. Please contact Anael Starchild in world for that.

Sodasullivan: I agree with Sally, it looks really amazing. The pics are great but everyone should go look in person. 1 month ago

I'm *thrilled* to finally bring you this one. Has taken me a while because it's PACKED with cute props (90!) that make very nice static scenes, and very funny situations. If it wasn't enough, it was more than 1300 new animations (I bet you haven't seen most before!).

Hand of 'God'
Today I had another of those moments many can relate with... as I was placing some lamp posts, the bridge I had place for mere practical purpose called me. There were stand-alone lanterns in the set...and there it was. If felt 'right'. But why? Why was so excited? There was nothing groundbreaking on it, I was eventually going to put lights there so..why? The pixelate landscape had suddenly become a place, a scene, a story. The mesh suddenly 'blended' together to emulate the quirkiness and choesive imperfection that we find in the real world by the Hand of 'God'. And it dawned on me that that's what many of us seek on this creative process. Not terraforming, or landscaping, but emulating the Hand of 'God'. The dimly lit wooden footbridge soon demanded some eery fireflies and bushes. And I know it will soon demand more: a forgotten fishpole, maybe a misplaced plank, a rock coming up from the river that never quite fit with the wooden structure...

Morning haze at Darkheart's Chelsea Point while working are ongoing.

I remember 2 years ago when I didn't even know how to edit-linked! Soon after I discovered landscaping and the gratification (and frustration) that comes with it.
Current project: a 16 sims joined into a private residential area for Darkheart's. A lake area in the middle, mountains at the very end (not visible).
This is the first piece of land, still in progress - just main shape buildings and cliff-ing.

Brandy_Darkheart: Your doing amazing work with it, quality takes time....but it always shines through! 3 months ago
Because sharing is caring? 8 people... so up to 4 simultaneous couples at the same time with more than 1000 animations all up! Because it is all flat...you could even make the rug 100% transparent and just place it on a beach! Possibilities are endless - the challenge might be to fill all the sitters!

RafaGuzn: Thank you for the gifts, a little bit too laggy though. It might help to make one package for each product, instead of separated single items. Just a suggestion. 3 months ago

This new addition is more tailored towards some rougher poses. Includes fist animations as well as some cuck flavoured poses.

And here it is: You will find a good number of new decor items on the small stores next to the main shop...more incoming!
Uber: hop://playground.darkheartsos.com:8002/Darkhearts%20Boutiq...

Caveats:
1. Please bear in mind that many items have been uploaded with High LOD to perserve quality. Do consider not overloading your sim with those!
2. Rotation on scripted, triptych, frames isn't perfect... lacking some practice there with non-axis ones!

Sooon... like I said...working on some decor & clutter items for you folks.
*mimics Ariana Grande's impression of Rhianna's 'Work'*

Hey folks. Grid owner just mentioned that her and Sr. Staff are already working in some stuff. So will delay the previous survey until I have some clarity. Starchild out!

A bit on erratum (?). Recently uploaded the corner and row store and today, shopping at R. Lion for something else, I realised they are there? *sigh*
Anyway, just a good excuse to remind you folks of this GO-TO store: hop://watersplash.inworldz.net:8002/iPleasure/312/51/1979

My Reviews

ValLands

Amazing, original, scripted stuff. They rental system is breath-taking. And Valerie is extremely supportive to guide people through challengues!

FLORA

This is THE place to go if you have to landscape. As Frank says in another review it's extremely well organised, easy to find massive packs of stuff. And the sim looks amazing as well.

TierraDeVolcanes

Went to visit today, and what a treat! Gave me R.Lion vibes (and that's a good thing!) so much stuff that I had to just bookmark and decide to "raid" it later. All newly brought stuff too! Amazing work! Thanks for that!

Parrots Bay

Great place: good parties and amazing support!

Nautilus Middle Earth

Gorgeous sim! And thanks a *million* for sharing the landscaping too - had been looking everywhere for a couple of very specific bushes and....there they were!

Moonrose Shopping

I love how the mall is arranged around the plaza - very easy to navigate and find things. Nice selection!
