This Week in Carriage Trade
New in the Tack Room:
Interactive English Sets for Light Horses – but these are even MORE special, because these are the long-awaited Interactive English Sets. The note card describing everything that is in them is attached, but suffice it to say this is one of our biggest developments in the creation of interactive tack ever. With a texture, color, shine, and resizing HUD; built-in roleplay gestures; full interactivity to allow a rider to tack and untack their horse; plus chat commands to extend the use of the set, including two bridle options, and a scripted halter. This is an exceptional set that includes 12 colors, 4 metal options and 8 wool options, all in a single, beautifully developed set.
The set is available in Carriage Trade, the Water Horse sim, and SL Marketplace. Pony set to follow soon!
Also, 3 NEW texture HUDs for your Interactive English sets: Pastel, Pretty in Pink and Gothic. All have 12 unique leathers, 4 unique metals, and 8 unique wools, so there is no overlap between any of the sets, including the ‘Basic’ pack that comes with your tack!
