Details

Make avatar 2.0 Great again!
This is the long overdue fitted mesh update as well as bento face and hand rigging. You can now adjust the shape of your legs, belly and butt to make your shape more juicy. You can also adjust some of the face sliders but not all of them work. Due to the changes to the shape of the head, both old and new avatar 2.0 users that use custom shapes, will need to readjust the size, spacing and depth of your eyes for compatibility.

- About the project -

The project began with a vision of, or more like, a necessity for a better second life avatar model, one that LL failed to provide us with, or even fix any of the major flaws of the current model for years. Now that mesh is a thing on SL, we finally have the power to make that vision a reality. The main purpose of the Avatar 2.0 project was to research and develop the best possible ways to model and rig the the second life avatar, as well as how to make it a true, functional, viable alternative to the painfully outdated system avatar. So that i could apply the things i learned to my future mesh avatars. Over the time lots of new features got added and problems fixed and we are now at version 1.14

- Whats New in 1.14 -

Huge update, avatar 2.0 now partially supports fitted mesh (the whole lower body bellow the waist) as well as bento rigging for the face (not all bento features are supported due to the way the game treats custom joint positions)
Huge improvements to render weight from 32K to just 4.8K (the render weight randomly fluctuates between higher and lower numbers because the whole render weight system is garbage) as well as script optimizations.
There are now 2 versions of the body, A and B. Version A is the normal version witch is 4.8k render weight, and the experimental version B with 2k render weight witch will not work for people running the game on ghetto graphics settings.
A bunch of new features implemented such as normal/specular map support, head customization options and other neat things.
All the existing clothing have been updated to work with this new version, rez your update cards.

- About the HUDs -

The Body HUD lets you easily show and hide different body parts for use with different mesh clothing, as well as easily customize your avatar.
- Press the "Advanced" button under the figure in the main part of the HUD to switch it to Advanced mode, from here you can select what you want to hide in more detail.
- Press the gear icon button to go to the options menu to customize your avatar.
- To load a custom texture onto the body, go to the options menu of the HUD, click ADD and enter the UUID of your texture based on the given example, submit it than click load under the texture preview window.

The Head HUD lets you change your face expressions, customize the head and eyes. It also has a few extra skin customization options that the body HUD doesnt have, such as setting specular maps.
- The L and R buttons on the main part of the HUD and in the options let you select with eye you control/customize.
- Press the gear icon button to go to the options menu to customize your head and avatar.
- The options menu lets you choose different eyebrow, eyelash, skin, lip textures or load custom textures on each of the head components as well as select or load your own specular maps onto the whole avatar.
- To load a custom texture onto the head or body, go to the options menu of the HUD, click ADD and enter the UUID of your texture based on the given example, submit it and it will load automatically.

- Bonus items -

The bonus item box will now contain the older versions of the avatar as well as the UV maps and skin textures for people interested in modding the avatar.
The script commands for hiding body parts and controlling the face expressions are included as well.

Always make backups before editing, if you forgot to make a copy and screwed up, use the update card to get a new copy.

- Known bugs -

Invisible LL avatar eyelashes will sometimes show up, messing with your eyes, wear a different alpha if that happens.

If you are having any other problems, please check with the included trouble shooter notecard before contacting me or my associates.

btw the hair in the image is called Robyn and its from a store called "truth"

I love this avatar

As a suggestion, I'd say it should have more lingerie pieces made to fit it. >;3

this is a 600 linden worthy beta avatar for sure !

Posted October 22, 2019 by NeverInThisLifetime 5 stars

WORD! this is a great little avatar!
Do you really get a FULL AVATAR?! yes! you do with hands and feet and a head.

does it have limitations ? of course it does! it is a beta, you know what you buy
You can adjust a lot of the shape not everything (yet) but a lot of things you can change

the skins provided are basic but fine, It does look a tad too young teen for me personally, so I am creating a whole new skin for it
this is an interesting process as I'm using a skin I have used on an old avatar, and of course, the layout is much different but it is starting to look promising already
I love that the creator opted to leave the mod perms and copy perms so you can make a copy and just try things out to see what works and what does not
I love that for just 600 Lindens you can have a good bento mesh avatar (I was a bit overwhelmed when I saw the prices of most and they have way fewer mod rights (if any)
BIG KUDOS to the creator here very well done!

the HUDs are, simple as to be expected, but they work very efficiently
the hand's animations are all single poses (they do not seem to have any movement<or I have not found that option yet)
the body HUD is great! super easy to work with, it allows enough ways to use alpha to get dressed in a lot of styles
I have only tried on a few items (Maitreya and M standard sizes) and they work perfectly
Mimic wise it seems to be limited to certain values something I will need to look into deeper at a later time but for now, I'm thrilled to start creating a nice skin for it
