Check out the Rascal Platform Shoes from BlakOpal Designs. This is a playful flat shoe with a high platform. It features colorful pebbled leather with contrasting edging and three buckled straps. They also feature high quality models and advanced materials.
Advanced Materials Are Amazing
BlakOpal and I make a wide variety of art in the real and digital worlds. We love working with different tools and materials. I love how light shines, illuminates, and reflects off different surfaces. Take a look at the Rascal Platform Shoes in the video above. That leather looks so realistic! In the past, that kind of detail just wasn’t possible in a virtual world.
Previous generation worlds like Second Life made an effort to support advanced materials. However, they fell short of a truly PBR (physically based rendering) model. It was pretty good at the time, but relied on tricks that designers pulled to force an item to look like it was in a particular environment. The results looked great in certain places, but not so great everywhere else.
SineSpace and Unity do support PBR, so our advanced materials render accurately in real-time. The lights and shadows aren’t painted or baked on. Whether you’re outdoors, in a brightly lit room or at a virtual nightclub, the Rascal Platform Shoes look like they are actually in that environment.
4K Materials Support
The Rascal Platform Shoes also features spectacular 4K resolution materials. SineSpace is introducing 4K support for clothing in the 2019.1b48 and later clients. Users with higher end desktop and laptop systems with fast connections will get more detail than ever!
The idea of creating or serving up content at such high resolution seemed unfathomable on previous generation worlds. Fortunately Unity is a modern game engine. The makers of SineSpace put a lot of thought into designing a grid for people who love virtual worlds. As a result, we can create better items. They load quickly on less powerful hardware, and deliver unparalleled quality on powerful systems.
The Rascal Platform Shoes are available now in several colors in the BlakOpal Designs shoppe in-world. You can also find them using the Shop button in the SineSpace client. Buy for yourself or as a gift for a friend. The pieces look great as a set but you can also mix and match them to create countless different looks.
