Can’t be sloppy with Appliers! #InWorldz

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

Vendors… Multi or old style? #InWorldz

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

Meshing around in Inworldz

Mesh has finally come to Inworldz!

Mesh is completely new for me, I had worn it in SL, but didn’t really know that much about it. Now I am learning super fast! lol. There is so much that goes into it, I don’t just mean the creating, its all the rigging & weighting you have to learn. I began a few months back learning Blender… boy is that an experience! I am comfortable with the interface now & I keep a handy list around for reference. I made a couple of simple skirts, which I had thought were correct they were nothing special, but I had created them. I uploaded these to Inworldz when Mesh was activated & although they moved with my Avatar it was clear that they did not deform as they were supposed to do with the deformer having been added to the IWv2 Viewer. I tried several ways, I didn’t even know if I was uploading them correctly. Then I came across some free meshes, I uploaded a few, still the same they just were not deforming. A friend then took a look at them & uploaded them to see what was going on… apparently they were old files & the rigging was off slightly & that was why they did not deform.

Luckily I was able to open them in Blender 2.67 & I began to re rig them, following the tutorials I had been using to learn how to make mesh clothing. I uploaded the newly rigged files & hey presto… they worked with the deformer… hurray! I thought, but oh… why are they distorting the new textures I had made, they hadn’t done that before… and here is where I quickly had to learn all about weighting.. until I get that right I wouldn’t even begin to release them.

It is a trial & error which is how I learnt to do all I can do anyway.

Right now I am trying out different ways to weight the mesh so that they move perfectly on the avatar without breaking or distorting my textures. Texturing them is really quite simple, a lot easier than texturing a sculptie I have found. I am enjoying learning this new skill, I just had not realised how much work was involved… no wonder they charge so much for Mesh content in SL. It certainly makes you appreciate the expense once you know exactly what is involved behind every item of mesh clothing.

There is good Mesh & bad mesh & I want to only make good Mesh, so Watch this space 😉

Happy Meshing!

Meshing About!

I was inworld this morning making up a new outfit & chatting in one of the groups & the chat got around to Mesh clothing in SL… now Mesh is something I have been wanting to learn, but apart from dl’ing a program for it I haven’t done much about learning… yet! With talking about it today, I remembered a demo Mesh dress i picked up from my fave SL Designer Rebel Hope last year, but was unable to view it because of my old laptop. So I logged out of IW & logged into SL… after I had to get my pass because I didn’t have it stored on my new lappy :p

I went straight to my inventory & put on the Mesh demo I had in there…. WOW!!! Now this was something I liked, so I hopped skipped over to RH’s store & went crazy trying on all the Mesh demos lol

Trying on all the different dresses & having to wear the Alphas that went with them though soon made me see that Mesh, would look Fantastic if you wore the same shape as the Creator… if your not then it can look a little ‘off’. I only wear a cheap shape & skin in SL because its a new avatar & I don’t want to have to upload everything… would cost me a small fortune.. and I rarely go there anyway so it isn’t worth it. I noticed the mesh dresses come in different sizes, but even then some of them didnt fit right on my avi… I always have big boobs on my avi coz I have them in RL & big boobs really dont fit into these mesh dresses… if you wear the largest, then it bags out at the back & looks awful. I wore the medium & most looked ok, but as you can see from my pics… those boobies just ain’t fully covered!

Mesh will be coming to IW Soon(tm) I really like the concept & the possibilities are endless, however I do believe there will always be a Market for layers & prims…

Now where did I see that Mesh tutorial?….

Bye for now

You CAN Find it in Inworldz!

A recent posting in the Forum got me thinking…
[quote] I came into IW one year ago and upon returning. Not much has changed except
there are less people now.
I left before because of a few reasons.
1. No decent hair for men. I know, You probably think that is stupid. Well its not.
2. Alot of false advertising. Example: Texture packs. For a high price you can buy the same texture over and over. The creators of these packs make it look like your getting different kinds in the packs. but its pretty much the same texture with different colors.
3. Cloths for men. Come on, Why cant anyone build decent cloths for men?
4. Not much animated stuff and upon return, No improvements.
5. Alot of deception. I met some really nice people in IW but I also met alot of people trying to deceive and trick me.
6. Something good here. The land owners are wonderful. Very helpful and generous.
7. Great Music in the events. Truly excellent.
Over all. I do not feel encouraged to hang out in IW much.
And even tho I bought 2 parcels of land. I am not sure Ill be in much. Bye[/quote]

If residents are truly leaving, as suggested in the OP of this thread because of a lack of Content then they really haven’t looked far…

This is just a Taste of what you CAN Find in Inworldz if you look..

Hair… & Mens Clothing… Well I sell Mens clothing myself & I sell some Hair

Damselfly ~ Deviant, EMO-tions, & Hot Heads are just 4 there are a lot more.

Mens Clothing…

These are just 2 there are many more.. Hawkes, stella

We Have some Excellent Malls filled with many fine Creators Bellissima, Matahari, Rhapsody, Mimi’s Choice

Animations: Abranimations has been here for a few years now, along with Animation Station & a whole lot more, too many to mention… just do a search in classifieds

Texture Makers… There are countless, I have no idea where this resident was looking, but they didnt look far enough imo

I can count on a couple of fingers the amount of ppl I have met in my 4yrs in Inworldz, who have tried to deceive me… I met zillions in SL & I was only there for 3yrs

You want to see ppl? Just look at the map…
