Grizzly Creek Sculpted Blue Jay -Rez or Wear-

Details

This listing is something of a departure from our usual songbirds because the Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata) is NOT typically considered a songbird. Being a "corvid" (the same family as crows and ravens to name two) they are not noted for their singing ability. However, because of their stunning coloration, popularity and bright personality we felt that the Blue Jay should be included in our line.
The Jays as a whole can make quite a bit of noise when they want (and so can ours) and are not terribly melodic so, for this reason we have included a full set of additional "silent" birds that you can display or wear without the extra screeching and whistling.
Our Jay includes ALL of the features you've come to expect from our line of premium songbirds and we think you will quickly fall in love with your new friend. Of course a shoulder pet is included to take him with you wherever you roam.
This bird also contains our latest custom, upgraded scripting making their animation and movements even MORE random and realistic.

--------About the Birds-----------

Our birds will all add a very high level of realism to your home, forest, garden or sim. They are built with the specific purpose of giving you the highest quality, most unique and best value of any on the grid.

Hundreds of hours have been invested in putting these birds together as a part of our "Second Nature" Collection. A new line of Grizzly Creek products built specifically to bring the wilderness into digital space.

Textures: Each one is carefully sculpted in Blender and every texture from butt to beak is hand painted over a high resolution photograph. This eliminates seams, bleeding, blurriness, over saturation, "cartoonyness" and any of the other myriad of mapping issues, purely photo based textures suffer from.

Animation:
Our songbirds use all three primary forms of animation. Sculpt- To produce a bird which naturally looks around and tilts its head quizzically.
Texture - Using texture flipping to have each bird blink its eyes naturally .
Prim - This rounds out the animation by randomly having each bird assume a unique body posture.
Because each of them relies on some sculpt based animation it can be actually built as many as 9 times to produce a new sculpt map for each pose the he/she may adopt at any time.

Our prim based animation adds an additional level of movement that you would expect from a living creature. Your bird may shift its weight, bend over to look at something on the ground or up at the sky all in a completely random manner, rarely producing the same posture combination at any given time. This eliminates the mechanical repetitive feel that is usually the case. We made a very concerted effort to avoid the famous "drinking bird" effect that seems to be very common amongst most of the small birds made today.

Sounds:
The sounds used for all our birds songs are species specific and NEVER generic. They are derived from high quality recordings made by the builder himself or obtained from various sources including close friends and acquaintances in the ornithology departments of several major universities. Each clip is unique and may contain as many as 3-5 songs per clip. We have also taken into account regional variations, and put them in as well.

Prims:
Each bird in our Basic Sets is only 3 prims and you can easily add as many as you would like without a large impact on your overall prim load.

Scripting:
All of the scripting was designed to be as low lag as possible so you can rez multiple birds without any major impact to your sim speed.

Conclusion:
When added to your environment we think you will immediately see the difference. Not only are we bringing you a product on a level of excellence rarely seen but we also are giving you FAR more value for your investment then any other comparable bird. We invite you to compare our birds with any others available and we will stand behind the Grizzly Creek Songbirds.
There really are far more features and considerations we really don't have the room to list (believe it or not) here so feel free to review the documentation and just dig right in and and play with the models.
We will be offering our latest songbirds regularly and in no time you can build an impressive collection, all for the same low price and guarantee of quality and precision.

We are VERY excited about this new line and think you will be also once you try any of them.
