So I have been learning all about using appliers these past few weeks. I found the E-VOLVE ones very easy to use, but when it came down to the more complicated Mesh Body, Sapphira… the one & only in InWorldz, I believe. Well I needed a bit of help from the Creator & it took me a while to understand how to use them correctly. Now though its plain sailing… apart from, I have learnt that I need to be more accurate with my layer textures, I have always been a bit sloppy, you know leaving things long & using the system to shorten lengths etc Now its a whole new ball game, my recent designs have pristine layer textures, coz ya just can’t alter them once they are on the Mesh body 😉
I have found renewed inspiration for my designs too, I find myself designing for the Mesh body, I have always loved layers, now I simply adore them. All of my new designs have been created for use with the appliers. It takes a lot more time though, bagging everything up before you can release them. I have loads of new designs waiting, which just need bagging before they can be released.
Life as a creator in any world is not an easy one, but it is so enjoyable
So Grateful to Rosie Lavochkin for her E-VOLVE appliers, which I have had in my inventory from year dot I think & only just rediscovered! I can use the appliers on her demo’s… Yayyy. I am still unsure how I process this for outfits which have more than 1 shirt/pants/undies etc But I can now proceed with the E-VOLVE appliers for those outfits which only have 1 shirt/pants/undies 😉
Rosie Lavochkin provides a really great Developers kit for her E-VOLVE appliers for her Mesh Bunz & Breasts, she provides everything that is needed. A Demo that works with the applier, a logo for your posters & clear instructions on How to
Well done Rosie Lavochkin… Other Merchants should take notes
Look out for those outfits with the E-VOLVE appliers… coming shortly
OK Since I left SL back in o9 when I 1st found #InWorldz, I sort of missed that whole applier thing & the Mesh clothing thing etc etc. I read recently in the IW Forums that we now have some Mesh Bodies (WTF for I do not know *rolls eyes) Anyway I read one Merchants comment about Appliers & how she had seen a significant rise in her sales since she started using them. So I thought perhaps it is time that I started using appliers too for my system clothing. Why, oh why did I have that thought! So I started looking into it more, I grabbed a kit & a demo of the body… well that’s no good as it doesn’t work with the demo! Which means I would have to buy the bloody body myself costing 3000 I’z… but I will never wear it… it is purely for me to see how my layers sit on it gggrrrsss
I can’t even see the body unless I am on the v3, creating clothing on the v3 is just a non starter, I use the v2, but on the v2 all I see when I wear the body is distorted… very distorted Mesh when I wear the body. Then I would have to repackage all of my outfits so I can include the applier, this is after I have found all of the clothing textures & put the UUID’s for each outfit into an applier… and then… redo my posters so that ppl can see that they have the appliers! Shoot me now!!
The longer I put this off, the more work I will have to do later on…
So this morning, when I logged on to my laptop, everything froze. There had been an update while I slept, how I do not know because I had feature turned off… no updates unless I allow them. With a frozen screen all I could do was reboot… Nothing… reboot again…. nothing. This had happened before, when the laptop was about 11 mths old & then it had to go back to samsung to be repaired, free as it was still under warrenty. 3yrs later & it has happened again, but I wasn’t ready! I mean I knew I was going to have to replace it sometime soon, but not TODAY I was NOT ready for this TODAY. I had not backed up my HD, so EVERYTHING… all of my Mesh, my clothing designs, my new posters I spent hours creating last night for my new release… All GONE! I could have cried.
So now I have a new laptop, this time I went back with HP, got the pavilion with Nvidia Geforce. You can’t beat a HP, none of my other laptops ever let me down, or locked me out so i couldn’t save stuffs, they just wore out after quite a few years.
So now i have my shiney new laptop & was finally able to download the IWv3 Viewer
For years I used the 1 prim old style vendors for selling my wares, then about 2yrs ago I went to multi vendors really only for the gifting & discount options that you can offer to customers. I was out shopping a few days ago & had not really noticed this about myself before, but I really only purchase items from 1 prim, old style vendors myself. So it got me thinking (which is often a bad thing lol). I do not like to stand in front of a multi vendor flipping through to find something that I like, sometimes having to wait a while for the photo’s to rez in, so what makes me think that my customers do?
So for the past few days I have built a new store which I am now filling with old style 1 prim vendors, its hard work, I had forgotten that lol. But I am also having the multi vendors around for those who prefer them. It is going to take me a while before I can launch the new store, so my old one is still up & fully stocked with multi vendors filled to the prims with all of my creations 😉
I like how I can display my items in one prim. I like how I can make the store more user friendly with 1 prim vendors. My multi vendors are great… but no matter how I lay them out, you still have to wait a bit for the next page to show the photo’s
On my return I quickly rezzed out my old stores & filled them as fast as I could. Over the last dew days I have been thinking about changing things, the layout, the decor, even the buildings. In all of the years I have been in VW’s my main focus has always been fashion. I do create other things, like furniture & landscapes, I just don’t seem to Market those as much as I do my Fashion store. In the past I have always just placed furniture upstairs in my Main store, last year I copied my store & placed the furniture in its own place, but still not really focusing on it. Now I have purposely built a Furniture store, where I can place out all of my furniture & Furnishings on display. Lots of room for me to fill with lovely new creations I am working on 😉
