Details

Waiting for SL2? You now can already make mesh-models in SL, save them onto your hard-disk. Use them in SL, other games, or whatever. Build your own creative portfolio.

Celzium is an inworld mesh creation tool for SecondLife.

You can select from 32 mesh objects and create more complex build with these, Upto 8 different textures/materials are supported, includes UV-texturing and layout. Upto 200 sub-meshes can be rezzed and converted to a collada .dae file. You can upload into SL, or like blender and other 3D software packages.

I allow people to use, give away and sell the creations created with celzium (if using more then 2 building-blocks of this tool ) inworld, on other grids, to use for graphic & games, your portefolio.
(Selling or distributing the the individual building blocks of celzium I do not allowed at the moment)
And I would ask you to be wise about the distribution of your work, like giving it out copy/mod.
So it doesnt endup in a big biab-pile.

Although I work with standalone 3Dsoftware, I still love the ease of building and sketching in SL, for fine-tuning for certain models, I use like blender now and then.

The idea behind it is, easy to create mesh objects and builds. From beginning to more advanced builders. Its nice to have an inworld tool, from simple sketching, collision models for your more complex builds.. etc.

Can these shapes be cut like sl prims?
No, the shapes are individual types of mesh themself, low-poly mesh-objects including the UV-layout. They can be scaled/rotated/translated, like sculpties. In the future I want to add more mesh shapes and Celzium addons to choose from.
(There are some other tools around for 'normal' sl-prims to 3D-models incase you need that)

Needs:
Second Life client
You need land in SL where you can create and build, and can use scripts.
The tool itself is 1-prim, and 1 prim for each for every building block rezzed (max 200+)
Only the owner of the tool, can use it

A recent browser
To convert the data generated in celzium to a .dae collada file.
Current supports Firefox/Chrome/Safari/Opera with java-script enabled.
---> (the xml-file generation is not working on the current Internet-Explorer browser at the moment!)

For this tool I had in mind, simple/easy to use.

Excellent

So, for me this is one of the tools that are must-have. Can't overstate how often it has come in handy.

Most of the time I just use simple box and plane submeshes. Of course, it lacks some simple shapes (What comes in mind first of all is a single-face circle with planar texture). I doubt I will ever make it to make, say, a sofa (even comical one).

But for structures.. Oh boy, there's been hundreds of times it saved me some prims and time (just slapping several planes in SL is way easier than doing that in blender for me, expecially if the planes need to align with inworld objects. This can, of course, be done by exporting from viewer directly, but then you would have to fiddle with the UVs and materials, which is, well, slower)

What I love about this toy is that it is "just like the old days", when we've built everything out of prims and sculptie prefabs (sculpties were hard to make, and I usually reused a sculptie I made many-many times).

Inworld building ftw!

not what i expected

Posted May 19, 2021 by Dot Dakota 3 stars

for almost 2000 linden one may expect a bit better quality

the shapes are poorly textured the edges just come out ugly (could not see that in the demo version as that one only has 1 standard cube and that happens to be the nicest textured block in there
on edges textures droop/ look smeared (better then trying to texture a sculpt, but bad if you expect high end mesh)
and because this machine uses meshes, there are no seperate sides so again you have limited options there

3 starts because it does work as described .. just not 5 because there is a lot lacking here

very few options for builders, you can only use the meshes provided in the rezzer, and as said, they are not the best textured

you cant incorperate sculpts of regular prims, and it is hard to get a low LI wiithout losing LOD

wish I had not bought it, but also noticed that i did buy a product launched in 2012 making it nearly a decade old ..

in teh vids on youtube the man seems to "want to" make a lot of improvements, seeing how old the vids are and how extremely basic this tool is, i think there havnt been any upgrades yet

even if you rez a mesh and generate it it will be 1 solid li, not lower then that, bit of a shame cos the only thing i used this pricey tool for was to make couches and chairs and i loved the pillows in here ..
but at 1 li each im not going to be using it at all

thankfully it was only around 5 euro but i wuold on hinesight have loved to spend that on something newer and better ..

i did not contact the creator, because i hope he puts the earnings towards upgrades
