March/April in Review
Huzza! Only Two Months in between this time!
Neck Blenders for Men
First.. because there has been many.. many requests…I FINALLY got the Neck kit updated for men! It now includes 1 neck size and 3 neck blender options for menfolk.
Head Updates: In an attempt for a more intuitive design, I’m experimenting with a new method of Makeup Application. I’ve started updating select heads and kits to react to the “HUD” and “ALL” buttons by bringing up a popup for you to select where to apply a texture. Theoretically, this should reduce the need to use the routing hud and help folks who just sorta blindly click. 🙂 (Since all buttons on the applier will either apply the texture in the default areas or bring up a popup!)
Full Perm Kit Changes: Well.. it looks like Full Perm Heads are going to be more and more of a thing, so after talking with Customers, Creators and my Minions I’ve decided to make a change in the pricing Structure. Before, to reflect the Added work of keeping such a kit secure and providing Customer Service for it, I set the price at 299L for the Meli Imako Kit as well as the Safy Belle One. I’ve decided to change this as to not punish end users. Instead there is now two kit editions for each of these products and future products like them.
- The Creator Edition includes a transferable Plug-in script to be placed in the head before sale, instructions for naming, test appliers and anything else I think might be useful with a particular head. It is priced at 299L, only available inworld and only available after purchasing the “Customer Edition”
- The Customer Edition includes an Installer and because I know some people won’t set the head up correctly before selling it… a no-transfer “demo” version of the Plug-in Script along with instructions. It won’t include any of the other tools and bits I decide to include with the Creator Edition. It will cost the normal 99L but will not have a Group Discount available.
Phat Azz Channel Updates:
Well…. it took 2 years.. and giving up completely.. but I did it… I found CK Winx! (Rather he found me.. ) For those of you who aren’t 100yo in SL years, that’s the creator of Phat Azz, not the first mesh booty, but the one that really launched them into the mainstream. You can still find TONS of appliers for it on the MP and every booty had its’ own instructions for converting them!
And now, with CK’s help and permission, I’ve updated the Generic Router to convert allll those Phat Azz appliers into an Omega Ones.
Simply make sure you are wearing the router when you use the phat azz applier. No more clunky Notecard swapping for phat azz (thank goodness).
And if you want to make a permanent applier for yourself instead, I’ve also updated the Applier Converters to listen for Phat Azz as well. 🙂

If your Body has not updated, or even if it has, you have some options!
Slink: No big surprise, Slink has released bento hands for both Men and Women. What was a surprise, to me at least, is if you already have Slink Hands, you can visit a redelivery terminal to pick a pair of bento ones! 🙂 For Full Details visit their Blog: Dynamic for Men, Dynamic for Women
Tuty has Bento Mesh Hands for Belleza(Slinkfit), Maitreya, Slink Ladies
Vista Mesh Hands for Belleza(Slinkfit), Maitreya, Slink Ladies, SL-Fem Body, Slink Mens and Giani Mens.
If you don’t have one of the listed bodies, still try a demo! Especially the ladies! Most Mesh Bodies have wrists that are slink-fit!
While we’re talking about hands, we should also talk about Nails! Another Reason you might consider adding stand-alone bento hands to your look is that BS and Empire have been hard at work making Nail add-ons for Tutys, Slink, Vista and Maitreya!
BS Nails: If you have Tuty Hands, BS has made some lovely Long Coffin Nails for you!
Empire: Empire… went a little overboard… in a Good way! To date, she has 5 Shapes, Square, Coffin, Almond, Stilleto and Claw each in 3-4 lengths! That’s 19 different options, each fitted them for Slink, Vista and Maitreya!

Head UV Explanation:
To help mesh makers out, I’ve added some clarification for the head UV:
Mesh Maker Info Page:
- The Mesh Maker Info Page has been updated to be hopefully clearer and cleaner!
- You can now actually find a link to the Pre-Installed Pricing. (Before you had to ask for it!).
- There’s now a form for contacting me if sending me an IM/NC doesn’t do it for you.
- I’ve added a few things to the requirement section, specifically rules for just how “heavy” a mesh can be.
The new limits are VERY generous and just seek to weed out the absolutely unusable. As usual, make sure you try demos, check out ACI and script counts before making a purchase.
- Lastly, and most importantly, I’ve released a brand new UV guide for nipples. (Seen to the Right).
I can’t make anyone use it, but if you’re in the process of making a mesh body, or have made one and haven’t had any luck getting people to make skins specifically for your body, why not use this one? Lets save skin makers some headaches!
