About Xzari Curtains

Xzari Curtains was established early 2008. It started in a casual building with a few texture on a prim-curtains, among other home-made things that was set for sale, to help paying the rent for the sim it was located in. The only things that was sold in that little shop-like room, was the curtains. Apparently people liked them and after a few months shops were rented around in different malls with the limited selection of Xzari Curtains. Textures was build in gimp to make the curtains look natural, artistic, pretty, shiny and everything that looked pretty became a curtain-texture to put on the prims.

Now new curtains saw the light of the day. Scripted curtains with sliding open/close.  Then it didn’t take long before there was made enough money to rent a quarter-sim, with room for more curtains.

In 2009 The first full sim was rented, and some full perm curtains was bought to expand the selections. Now all curtains was scripted and could open/close, change color and set glow and transparency.

The script was then refined to have little particles and wind-option. The sculpted curtains that was bought didn’t really fit the scripts that could make them change so time had come to dig into Blender and start learning how to make sculpts. So now both shape, functionality and look was home made. And it still is. Later scripts was refined to include a sun-system and a better and low-lag wind-system and the particles is no-more, except in a few older curtains.

Many full sims around have had a Xzari Curtains through time, and there has been many malls with a Xzari Curtain shop too.

Since 2014 Xzari Curtains is located on the mainland in SL next to a roadside. It has always been a dream to have a shop near a road on the mainland, so when the right spot was available, then the full sim was delivered back to its owner, and 5 plots on the roadside was bought and joined to one big plot. Fortunately there are some very good neighbors that don’t lag or disturb at all, so the shop will probably stay there for a long time.

In 2013 shop in Inworldz was established. Sale went well there too and it could pay for the rent at the plot that was rented for it. In late 2014 the area where the shop was located was almost dead and the shop was moved to a lovely sim with a cheaper rent and an expansion of the shop was made recently that doubled the size of the shop.

In 2014 a shop was established in Kitely and on the new Kitely Market. Apparently it was too early to make a niche-shop there, like curtains are, so after 6 months and no sale the shop was closed down. Early 2016 another attempt to start a shop in Kitely and on the Kitely market was made, and this time it seems to be much better. The market has expanded to more grids, there seem to be more people in Opensim today than 2014. The sale hasn’t reach  a level where it can pay the rent yet, but with a little hard marketing work then it should be a possible goal to reach in near future.

 

 

Curtain Tips

If you’d like more space in your small room but aren’t quite ready to knock out walls and extend the room beyond its current borders, there are ways you can give it a more spacious look and feel. The curtains you choose can either add space or take it away. Choose your curtains carefully, and employ a few tips and tricks to maximize your room’s visual square footage.

Simple, Airy Curtains
Curtains made of lightweight fabrics give a feeling of spaciousness, especially when they are unlined and allow sunlight to filter softly through. One reason is because a well-lit room feels more spacious than a dreary, dark one. Another reason is that lightweight fabrics take up less space in your room, both literally and visually, than curtains made of multiple layers of heavy material. If you prefer a step up from plain-Jane panels and would like some detail on your curtains, keep those light and simple as well, such as ties at the top, simple fringe along the bottom or small tassels down the sides. Multiple stuffy details — for example, poofy swagged top treatments and heavy trims — add weight and take up more visual space in your room.

Floor-to-Ceiling Curtains
Hang your curtains as close to the ceiling as possible, then let them drape all the way to the floor. These long panels of fabric will make your ceilings seem higher and your room larger. Hem your curtains so they fall just to the floor, because while “puddled” curtains look rich and luxurious, the extra fabric takes up valuable floor space.

Color-Coordinating Curtains
Keeping a cohesive color scheme is another way to give your room more visual square footage. When you match your curtains to your wall color, the monochromatic color scheme gives walls a longer, wider, taller look and feel. Contrasting curtain and wall colors divide walls and break them into shorter sections, which makes your walls appear chopped and divided and seems to subtract space from your room.

Light Colors
Calm, light colors add visual space, while strong colors take it away. This is doubly true if you have matched your curtain color to your wall color. Choose curtains and walls in soft gold, light tan, spa blue or pale gray over louder, more intense colors such as dark red, bright purple, teal or dark brown.

Open the Curtains
Open your curtains whenever possible. This lets in light, which adds space. It also extends your room to the outdoors, making it seem larger. If your room is quite tiny, keep visual clutter to a minimum by using curtains that draw only to one side of the window as opposed to being split in the middle and drawing to both sides. Keep furniture placement simple and uncluttered so it is not necessary to crowd furniture around your window. Too much furniture placed near your window blocks views and incoming light and sometimes even prevents you from opening your curtains.

Make It Wider
If you have a long, narrow window in your living room, like the kind found on either side of an entry or other exterior door, keep your window treatment narrow to make the window look wider. Use a curtain that isn’t as wide as the window to cover it, so woodwork and a sliver of window peek out the sides. This creates the impression that the window is wider than it actually is, and in the case of an entryway, the window treatments will also make the door a focal point.
If the narrow window is in another part of the room, you can create the illusion that the window is wider by using longer curtain rods and wider curtain panels.

Go Short
If your narrow window is short or average length, think about skipping the longer curtains for a shorter curtain style such as a valance. Using a valance will keep your window treatment from overpowering the window, and unlike other window treatments, a valance over a narrow window will keep the window’s proportions, which may be important if you have more than one narrow window.
If fabric valances aren’t your thing, try wooden blinds.

Xzari Curtain FAQ

During the years as virtual curtain-merchant, I have recieved many questions about my curtains. I will try to answer the most asked questions here.

 

Why do you have 2 different prices for a product in your shop in SL?

In SL I use the Caspervend system to handle the sale for me. That also allows me to give a group-discount, so if you want to buy a curtain to the lowest price then you can join the “Exquisitely” group and then you are allowed to the discount. (There are a few of the curtains that isnt a part of the vendor-system, and then you will only be presented with one price.)

 

I resized my curtains and now I cant open or close them anymore. Is that a bug?

No it is not a bug. It is because you didn’t reset the curtains after the resize. The new size has to be saved for the script to calculate the right numbers to be able to open and close, and that “save” is done by clicking on the Reset-button in the curtain-menu. That button is located in the OnlyOwner menu. Remember that the curtains are copyable so you can always rezz a new set.

 

I am looking for a certain curtain that I have seen at a friends house, but I cant find it. Can you help?

Through time I have refined and updated the curtain-scripts many times, and when I have to update the curtains with the new script, I sometimes feel for making a new curtain instead of updating the old one. That is probably a typical creator-thing, because its more fun to make something new than to update old stuff. Anyway then I sometimes have to keep the not-updated curtains in the inventory to make room for the new ones I have made. So if you want something you remember having seen somewhere, but can’t find it in the shops around or on the marketplace, then just IM me and ask for it. I will then update and send you a new version if possible, or else you just get the same old version if it works fine.

 

I want to have a custom-look for my curtain. Can you make it for me?

Sometimes I have been trying to please people with a custom-made version for what they need. It can take a long time to create a special look for a curtain, especially because sculpted curtains are dead and mesh-curtains have to be very low-poly (low details)  so people don’t get a too high land-impact of it. Now mesh-curtains and low-poly aren’t a good combination, because the best looking mesh-curtains have a high landimpact, which is a shame in my opinion. You can then “cheat” with the texture to make it look more detailed. Sometimes it works and sometimes it does not, depending on what the customer ask for. I do prefer the requests for minor changes to an existing curtain, because that take less time and makes the customer happy for getting their modified version delivered quickly. If you have a request then let me know, but I have to evaluate what you need before deciding to do it, to be able to see if I can make it like you want or it will be a failure from start.

 

Can I buy your curtains as full-perm?

No, I don’t sell my curtains as full-perm. I did think about it though, but if I do then it will be on one of the 3D-model sites where you download it as a file, instead of SL.

 

“Hi”

Often I get an IM with just a “Hi”….

I know that it is people who want to know if I am online, and I am not online 24 hours a day, BUT I do get an email every time someone IM me, so it is a better idea to write your question to me in full length and then I will come online as soon as possible to answer you. Its not working to come online after I have seen the “Hi” and the IM you, because then you are already looking in other places for what you want, and have totally forgot what you wanted to ask about, according to my experience.
