Evening Star Boxed Set for Sale

Evening Star Airships - Boxed Set -buy it HERE

Sail the skies of Second Life with these 18/25 prim, physical airships. Always wanted a airship but steam power and all that brass of Steampunk not your thing? These airships were inspired to blend into nature instead of overpowering it. Drift low and quietly over your favorite areas in Second Life while the flaming beacon guides your way. Listen to the waves crash, the birds sing, the wind blow through the trees. The Evening Star Airships are powered by sail and lift is provided by hydrogen, helium, fae magick, you decide. The perfect airship for a "non-airship" area and yet blends perfectly into any Victorian/Steampunk Sim.

The Evening Star Boxed Set of Airships contains two versions of the Evening star. The 18 prim Evening Star I and the 25 prim Evening Star II complete with wood fired, flaming beacon. These airships feature seating for two and are very maneuverable, perfect for flying low between the trees. Easy controls so you can focus on the view and interacting with your passenger.

Recession Hits Airship Ventures

Airship Ventures located outside of San Francisco just closed their second round of fund raising for $2.5 million.

The company which operates the 246 foot long, 12 passenger zeppelin Eureka says this round was smaller than the original funding of $8 million and that the number of customers who are willing to pay the $500 per flight have dropped since the economic downturn and will result in a "longer ramp up".

Note the look the pilot gives the gentleman when he asks if she is the only woman pilot that does this. Yeah, like there are so many zeppelin pilots out there! Who cares if its a woman or a martian?

Things don't exist with out a name. And since our brains work in images, things to a lesser degree don't exist without a image. Thus.... The new logo.

I know what your thinking... Aether you must have spent days working on that.

Okay, maybe your thinking..Aether you must have spent seconds working on that.

Second Life Group

New Second Life group - Inglewood Airships.

Mostly a update group for my little airship builds. But I thought also a handy way for fellow airship geeks to meetup and stay in contact with one another. Did I mention freebies? Gots to love the freebies.

Hey, if nothing else give it a look for the nifty tags I came up with. Ever wanted to be one of the following?
  • Aeronaut
  • Airship Ballast
  • Airship Gypsy - Thanks Cayce!
  • Airship Pirate---Argh!
  • Pirateer--- same as above but with less social complications.
  • Airship Cannon Fodder - Hey! We can't all be Captain!
  • Airship Geek
  • Spunky Sidekick
I know, I know...those tags alone are worth joining. Once again Inglewood Airships-free-fellow airship geeks-free stuff. Go!

Cross post from Aether Chronicles from a few months ago. Video of myself building my first airship. And for the record. I'm still asking "what does this button do?".
