For me, the only reason I go to stonemason’s store to buy his fantastic buildings….He is truly gifted at making them

Agreed.

But i’m cheap at the moment so I didn’t even look. I saw all his stuff during the PA sale wink Don’t even think I’ve used my forest in a real render yet LOL

Sadly, me too. I didn’t bite during the PA sale and wish I had. I really love the realism of his work, but if things aren’t on sale, I have a tough time paying full price.

The 30% you are referencing is a coupon code given to Previous Stonemason customers.  You must put Lava Planet into your cart with other Stonemason sets and use the code to get the 30% off those other sets.

All working in Opera now.

Only issues I see are a couple of squished promos, which Stefan says he’s working on, and only two items at 30% off when I read the email as applying to Stonemason’s entire store.

Kevin does that above statement mean I cannot use to 30% coupon on its own if I don’t buy the Planet Lava?

I have seen this new product by Stonemason and I have a question for You guys:
there’s a very nice robot/mecha shown in the last picture of the promo “strip” of images…
is some kind of “preview” or an existing product?

Thanks

PS
Yes, of course the LavaPlanet is now in top ten of my wishlist items!!

I suspect, as Stefan has done this in the past, that nice robot/mech is something he created for his own use, and not a “preview” of something to come in the near future.

As far as the store page goes, I saw it yesterday and I like it a lot.  I had no problem getting it to display as intended in my Firefox 9 (yeah I know I have to update) on Win 7 Pro.  Selecting 60 per page works as intended, as does 30 per page.  The Buy Now button works, though it took a few seconds to switch to the product page.

My only concern is, as was mentioned earlier, that the Artist Bio text does not have enough contrast.  It should be a very dark grey or black, and his vendor name and the “close” link in the upper right corner should be dark as well.  The white just isn’t showing up all that well.  This is the online tool I use to check color contrasts when I’m working on a new site design —> http://webaim.org/resources/contrastchecker/

If I am not mistaken, that is how it was explained in the special mailing to Stonemason customers.

Sorry my bad my head is shed due to computer related woes, you are indeed correct

Save 30% on Stonemason’s entire store when you purchase his latest release, Planet Lava.

Confirmed, looks awesome in IE. I dropped IE because of Avatar issues and security issues. IE will be up dated to plug holes when will the Forums Avatar issue get resolved?

Actually IE8, and expecially IE9, are considered just as safe and in some respects even safer than the other browsers, today.

...opens up fine in FF on my old 32 bit notebook.

Has a lot of the feel of his personal website.  I like it, but my bank card doesn’t.

What do you think?

I think the page is amazing.  Beautiful, loads fast in Safari and the animation pops.  I was able to increase the products view to 60 with no problems.  The “view store” button is a bit of a waste of space, given you are at the store page already and clicking just pops you down the page a bit, but overall…bravo!
