Friday Find: xin.
Xin is a mens store owned by Superjaix and he recently redid the mainstore. The sim is very well done, brilliant textures and lots to explore. The store itself is on a small part of the whole sim, the rest of the place has a bit of a post-apocalyptic grungy feel to it. I decided to do a couple black and white images as well. You can see more of my images of the sim on my flickr.
There is also a hunt going on at the sim with a free unisex bomber jacket available, if you find it. You can see an image of the jacket and a hunt hint on Superjaix’s flickr.
