    A small country store or mom and pop store would have required fewer props :wink:

    True, and I was thinking about some of the comments on the SM Poser forum about using a "facade" or fake props would work for a second row behind the actual props. That won't add as much in the way of poly count as a second row of individual props.

    I think I need to widen those aisles.

    Wouldn't have been as satisfying to me. To be honest, I'm STILL thinking about the shoe store. I could have finished IT by now. Of course, since I still have the register done, It wouldn't take that long to knock it out. Of course, I run into the same problem there of having products to put on the shelves. It's kind of a shame I can't just make freebies for Hivewire to give away, but since I am still a vendor at CP I guess I could do it there instead.

    Not really Earl. If you think about it, no shoe store, at least not the nice ones, have that many pairs of shoes on a shelf, as you would have bottles of soda in a supermarket.

    In fact, the shelves wouldn't be that long, like in a large supermarket.

    I wouldn't have as many shoes to make, but I'd still have to make them. I'm terrible at shoes.

    Oh, I've never even tried to model shoes, so can't imagine what that's like. Then again, you can have other "accessories" as well, like purses to go with the shoes, so you wouldn't need all shoes on a shelf, or should I say only shoes on a shelf.

    I went ahead and modeled a boutique today. Basically just the walls, doors and windows. I didn't realize until I had pretty much finished that I was once a security guard for a "The Limited" store in a shopping mall near my home. This structural layout is almost identical to that store. The Limited sells, or rather, sold women's clothing, but I think I can make a few changes and it would be just as good as a shoe store.

    Ohhhh, sounds good. Post a screenshot/render when you have something for us to look at.

    It's just wireframe now. I did put in a salescounter near the rear wall, but no displays or dressing rooms yet.

    Would you HAVE to make shoes for a shoe store? with all the outfits that our 3D characters have, couldn't the shoes from them be used? (people use from their own collection I mean).

    eclark1894 Distinguished

    Of course. Any shoes I make would only be props for display anyway. So any renders with Dawn or Pualinine or Maisie or whatever figure you use would need to use shoes made and rigged for that specific figure.

    And here's the boutique so far. If you're wondering what the structures are in front of the checkout counter, they're light refractions of the checkout counter as seen through the front bay window display.

    I get so distracted sometimes. But I'm really starting to like that 3D text in Blender.:sneaky:

    And I finally got to use the spin tool on the door handles. that is SOOOO cool!

    Oh, I've been playing with Spin the past couple of days as well. I had first played with it while playing in a trial version of Rhino 3D years ago, and I liked it, but never tried it in more recent versions of Blender. I've been working on a set of glasses. The first, a wine goblet came out pretty decent. Now I have to figure out a nice Cycles material setup for it.

    This is really coming out nice, but I have one question. Why is the front wall so much thinner than the other 3? Or is that just the perspective view of the camera causing that?

    No, that's just kind of the way the floor plans look. The backwall and Outside back wall have a space between it for a stock room. You can see the entrance from this angle, but there's a entrance in the back corner.

    I had to put some fixtures into the boutique because it really started to look too small. So I put in Dawn behind the checkout counter, equipped with the register and card reader I made for the Supermarket. I also put in a bench for the customers to sit on while trying on shoes. I imported some of V4's old shoes for display purposes.

    That certainly puts things into a better perspective.

    Heh, I did not know there was an actual Clark's shoe store. This is in the UK.
