Decision time!

So I've decided what to do with my shop and the things in it.

I put big posters, about a week ago, around the store that look something like this:

So there ya have it on Sept 1st Nyte'N'Day is going copy/modify/no transfer. The reasons are in the previous blog post.

I also have lots of other news as well!

- re-doing my skins

I think I've mentioned this briefly in other posts. I'm getting a little tired of the cartoony appearance of them... so will be working a lot on fixing that. And I've gotten lots of good feedback on the current skins that I'm keeping in mind as I go along. I'm looking forward to doing the makeup and will be including more natural makeups (natural was a fairly common request). I've been playing with the skins for about a month now, but since I've put the deadline of Sept 1st on all this stuff will have to be a tad bit more dedicated to them.

- re-build of the store

The rebuild is coming along nicely. I think I'm pretty much done with the actual build and now am moving towards posters. Some have to be re-done but most of the time is spent changing permissions of my items within my inventory. I'm keeping the layout pretty much the same, so regulars don't have to re-learn where everything is.

- versatility

As mentioned on the transfer change "warning" poster most of Nyte'N'Day outfits are becoming more versatile. The texture picker in SL was borked for so long but it is now fixed! Wohoo!! I'm taking the time to put as many outfits as the texture picker will let me on different layers. So for example a shirt will come on the shirt layer and jacket layer.

On that note...if you have transferable clothes that you would like to switch for copy/mod ones please IM me in game.

- gift cards/fashion cards

As I'm stuffing the new posters...I'm also setting them up to accept Nyte'N'Day Gift Cards. You might have seen the system in use before in shops such as Blaze or Pixel Dolls. If you haven't seen automated gift cards before it's quite simple to use. You "wear" the card like you do any other prim object. To use the credit on the card you RIGHT click on the vendor/poster and select "Gift" from the pie menu. Cards will be available in these amounts: 250L, 500L, 1000L, 3000L.

- new clothes

Since my time is being dedicated to all these new things, I've also decided to hold off on releasing new clothes until Sept 1st as well. I know it's a drag to have to wait so long... but with all the newness it'll be worth it! :)

- bigger discount area

I'll be putting more clothing into the discount area (it'll still be upstairs) and also my current skins will be moved up there. They'll be permanently reduced in price but only sold in single packs to save on room (and prims!). Soooo if you were saving up to buy some skins, my suggestion would be wait 'til Sept 1st because not only will there be newer better skins, but the ones sold now will be much cheaper.

And that's all! :)
