Over the past few days, Makaio has been hard at work fleshing out the interior of the hotel - creating the welcome desk, entry fountain, lounge and xyz bar areas, and the re:fuel kitchen area. I flew out to California this week for the Second Life Community Convention, and he and I have been getting a lot of detail work done while we're both physically working in the same place. We're pretty effective at working virtually from distant locations, but sometimes there is no beating a work session with us both in the same place.
One cool detail piece we worked on yesterday was the bar area. The actual bar will have panels that close during the day to keep the space more family friendly and open at night to reveal the stocked liquor and wine bottles. With a click, these panels flip open and closed in the SL version as well.
