While I was putting together images for the new ShapeShifter 2012 site I re-rezzed some of the stuff that was on that sim in order to photograph it (yes, don't ask - I was inexperienced and silly enough not to have made an OAR). And I remembered that I really liked what I had done back then.
I am not sure if this stuff was as popular with visitors as the more 'storyworld' type of stuff that I also do. I am fairly certain that when this stuff was rezzed at alpha.tribe there were not too many photos of it on Flickr, which is always a good indicator as to how much people like what you make.
Does that matter? Well yes, of course it does. I want others to come and enjoy my sims, tell their friends, come back to play some more.
But, I do want to make more minimal things. Because I really like them. Truth be told, I like them much better than the storyworlds. So, could there be a way to combine these two really different approaches?
