S.I.P.H. Avatars


While the group gifts are available (they will be at the shop for a week, until Saturday 20th March), the group will have a joining fee of 250L. After this time, the avatars will be for sale for 500L each.

So if you’re not part of the group but you like them, you can join the group and get both avatars with a great discount:  the two avies just for 250L (the joining fee).

Please, don’t IM asking us to change this, complaining or claiming you didn’t notice the fee. The group gifts are limited, so please, don’t ask them once they’re retired and placed for sale, even if you lost them. We won’t make any exceptions. Period.

The previous comments can sound bitchy, but seriously, we’re fed up with certain situations.

It’s been a long time since we opened Boxed Heroes (August 2007) and lots of things have happened during all this time. We would like to thank our group members for their support through all these years with a couple of avatars. This is the first “big” group gift we make, and it won’t be the last one 😉

SIPH Group Gift vendor

S.I.P.H. aka Sometimes I Play Human is an android with a little beating heart that should be handled with care. The avatar pieces are dirty and rusty and oil tears run down their faces. They come in five colour versions: dark blue, light blue, fuchsia, green and orange. The avatars are copy/modify/no transfer. We recommend you to keep a copy of the avatars boxed.

The avatar is made to be used with the new 2.0 viewer, because although it has a terrible user interface, it has a great thing (probably the only one?) long time expected: alpha layers that allow to make invisible parts without the need of using the invisibility prims. We understand that most of you don’t want to use the beta version yet, but it seems that sooner or later, the new SL 2.0 will be required. So although you can’t use the avatar in the current 1.23 version (you won’t be able to wear the alpha layers and the avatar shape will show), come to the shop to get the group gifts and keep them for future use 😀

Inside the avatar boxes you will find an updater. You must keep it to get future updates of the avies. You just have to rezz the updater on the ground. It will contact the server to check for updates and if there’s any, you will automatically receive it. If we make any update of the avatar we will send a notice through the group. You will get it once you rezz the updater, but if there’s no update available it won’t do anything. Be careful not to delete it!

So, how can you get the group gifts? Activate the group tag and go to Boxed Heroes main shop. Near the freebie section you will see the vendors of the SIPH avatars. Left click on them and you will get them. That’s all.

Here you have some pics of the avies, you can click on them to enlarge.



I love these two details hehehe

    Simply superb avatar, I say it should be known to all the sci-fi/futuristic theme lovers gridwide!

    I’ve had, and enjoyed, the pink and white female SIPH avatar for a few months now… On a whim, though, I made a spare copy and started tinkering, and came up with a very fun effect. Edit any one part, hold shift and keep clicking attachments ’til you’ve got them all (don’t forget the eyes), then set the texture to blank, the color to black, the shiny to high, and the glow to 1.00. Be sure to do this on a spare copy, of course, because blanking textures cannot be undone, but the result is… very difficult to describe, but quite visually striking.
