Details

YES, you can get this package free. If you can't afford L$ 1, go in-world to the "Elegance & Style" store. There you'll find a vendor with this package at NO COST whatsoever. Instructions are included on how to unpack the boxes.

I had originally set the price at $3,500 and you'll see why when you look at the Master HUD, but Viva really needs to develop a solid user base and it needs creators to make skins, clothing and other items for her.

Because the market is almost exclusively dominated by a couple of brands, it's almost impossible for someone new to establish any sort of presence. Eventually, I'll need to charge more, but for now it's free in-world or a nominal L$1 on the Marketplace.

This is a new avatar and she is a work-in-progress. You can help by making suggestions and pointing out ways to improve her. Post your ideas on the Viva Forum (accessed from the Viva website.) But please go easy on me. Viva has been a tremendous amount of work, and it can be discouraging when people are unkind in their comments. Viva has great potential, and with your help, she can really shine.

UPDATE: I am actively working on the next version - and I'm being helped by a review team. (If you'd like to be on the review team, you would be very welcome. Just drop me a note.) This next version will see lots of improvements from a body aesthetics standpoint. Since the next version will be free, I won't be able to send all users an IM, so you'll want to check the Viva Forum from time to time for an announcement of its availability.

Let me fill you in on Viva features . . .

In development for nearly three years, it combines the latest virtual world innovations along with the best traditional features.

You get a Master HUD which is loaded with features and handles nearly any task you need to make your avatar look the best.

It includes Second Life most powerful and versatile application of the new Bakes of Mesh system. No need to switch from avatar to avatar. By the click of a button, the Viva system makes your avatar fully Bakes on Mesh compatible.

It handles advanced materials and physics with chest, belly & butt dynamics. Body shape is controllable by Appearance Sliders. You can drop scripts into mesh items you are wearing to control coloring, shininess, etc. It has an auto loader for alphas. It includes a fingernail and toenail designer and much more.

Overall, you'll find over 150 items in the package.

Amazing mesh avatar

Posted April 15, 2021 by Delfynn 5 stars

The picture on the store doesn't make that mesh avatar justice, with a nice skin it can look really amazing, and on the same level than the ones from the big brands.
I'll be honest, when I created my alternate avatar I didn't want to spend a lot of money on it, at least not as much as on my first one, so I chose this mesh because it was free. But now that I've used it a bit, I love it! I'm not a big fan of the provided mesh head, but it's easy to find a cheap alternative elsewhere.
The hud is indeed intimidating, but all mesh avatars have complicated huds. What I love with this one is that you have a quick tutorial that guides you step by step to set up your avatar and understand the different options. Besides on each tab there is a help button that quickly gives you an overview of the options, and buttons to click if you need more details. In the end I think it is one of the easiest ones to use.
The big problem is of course to find mesh clothes for those avatars, as most designers only do clothes for the big brands. With some practise I found out that most mesh clothes designed for the classic avatars, in sizes M or L, work best. Even then sometimes I need to use the alpha tab to hide a few bits of the avatar, but in the end it looks good. Using the hud you can create an object that remembers the alpha configuration, and if you add it to the outfit it will automatically adjust the alpha layer for you each time to wear the outfit. Neat!

I understand that it would be difficult to sell this mesh avatar at L$3500. I wouldn't have considered it if it where that expensive. But now that I know it I wouldn't hesitate to buy it at that price. There is a lot of work put into it and small creators should be supported. Keep up the good work and I hope it will take off! Definitely recommended
