Lockwood Venue personal space tours are being held by LH's cajun4life and lsutigersfan72. If you would like a tour of the space, please send a friends invite, and be patience please. We will get to you when we can. Also after you visit the space, we will be removing you from our friends list, so we can add more of the community to be able to come visit it after you have visited.

 

UPDATE: Just to let those of you who I have giving a tour to, the space has gotten some updates;

1. You can now select no music in the space.

2. There is 2 runway tabs, 1st one is the one that you saw, where it takes control of your avatar and does its thing. Now there is a runway tab that allows you to be able to control your avatar down the runway.

 

I will keep you posted of anything else that comes up, and also, if you haven't seen the space, please, feel free to send me a friends request and I will accept you and send you an invite to be able to see the space asap.

Arent there different 'theme packs' to buy etc.?

These are very customizable I think even more than normal apartments.

I have the space and am actually feeling buyers remorse Smiley Sad

 

The catwalk is an activity that wont even let you take pics, and for 12 people it is a bit big.

Can't see fashionshows happening here either, 3 judges, 9 contenders and no audience?

Pretty much every part of this apartment is costumizable. The wall color, the theme of certain areas, the flooring. There are 10 music tracks & 3 stage layouts. You can watch or judge the fashion shows, You can watch or judge a talent contest, and there is a dance floor setting. There are also about 5 or 6 mini animation games around the space as well as a gift machine stand. I believe the bundle will be 8.99 and a stand alone apartment will be 6.99. As well i think there will be some gift machine add ons.

It's a big disappointment for me personally. I got to see the space this afternoo and although it's a very beautiful space it's really not functional for fashion shows.

 

There is no club coming so that rules out 32 users and the runway itself is not even accessable unless playing the game. I'm not sure why they roped it off. It could have been used as a machinima venue for some of us at least. I would hope they'd remove the rope blocking the runway which does not have the game prompt.

I figured out that the ropes go away if you change the flooring. If you keep it as a runway, there are ways around (or should I say over) the rope.  Smiley Wink

Yeah but it shouldn't be that way. One should simply be able to walk out onto the Runway without having to resort to other techniques. It's a georgous space, very large, well lite and so on but sadly it's simply not functional as a real fashion show venue. 

 

We used the public space as a Fashion Venue for a fashion show for The Rich Girls of Home last year. This although not public could have at least provided a very interesting opportunity if it were a club space.

Thanks for the tour, it's definitely huge so far better as a clubhouse than personal space. I was even thinking it would make a cool public space. You can change the wallpaper / floor by section like the Granzella penthouse, which was nice.

 

I didn't care much for the bar; Serving and drinking are just animations that you can activate whenever  - like the hot chocolate machine from Juggernaut. It'd be better if they were connected, where someone has to serve and the glass stays there until you drink it.  Still better than nothing, though. The runway minigame didn't impress me either, viewing angle isn't great and you don't get to control anything.

 

It's different but not heads and tails over other spaces - I think $6.99 / $8.99 is about the right price, as long as the expansion packs aren't too expensive and they make a clubhouse version. It'll be interesting to see what different things they'll add to it in the future.
