5 Standard Sizes vs Fitted Mesh

5 Standard Sizes vs Fitted Mesh
Ok Ladies.. I don’t want to call anyone out individually… This.. is getting out of hand.
So let me explain something…
Being able to get your <insert brand here> into the mesh clothing you’re selling is NOT the same as that mesh being for that brand!
If the mesh you’re selling is “5 Standard Sizes”… 
DO NOT PUT MESH BODY LOGOS ON THERE!
IT IS FALSE ADVERTISEMENT!
When SHOULD you put a mesh’s logo on your product?
  • You’ve included the Proprietary Appliers for that particular brand.
  • The included mesh is FITTED Mesh specially designed to fit that FITTED Mesh Brand.
  • The included mesh is RIGGED Mesh specifically designed to fir that RIGGED Mesh Brand.
    (see how that works? Fitted needs fitted sizes, rigged needs rigged sizes)
When SHOULDN’T you put a mesh’s logo on your  product?
  • The included Mesh only has the 5-6 Standard Sizes.
  • You’ve tested and concluded that <insert mesh> will fit …if you play with the sliders…
Basically..If someone has to adjust their size to fit their mesh body into that mesh.. It is NOT for that brand and you should NEVER put their logo on it! It’s false advertising!
If you are doing this… STOP IT.
If you see someone doing it… don’t buy their things!
And as always..until this stops being a thing… always try demos…
and don’t support brands that do this.

Update:

Apparently some of you have taken this to mean that this applies to mesh items that require you to use the bodies included alpha hud… it does NOT.

Alpha huds are part of the body, there is nothing wrong with making you use them so they can do a tighter fit. As long as the edges don’t clip the body regardless of shape, there’s nothing wrong with this. There is a big difference between a piece of fitted mesh that requires you use the meshes built in features and a piece of rigged mesh that only comes in standard sizes.

Important Jira about Alpha Mapping and Mesh
 
It’s been brought to my attention that a VERY important Jira has been started regarding Alpha Masks and Mesh.
Specifically TMP has put up a request to Linden Labs to implement a means of adding alpha layers to mesh. Much like we are now able to add spec maps and normal maps to mesh, they have proposed being able to add alpha maps to them as well.
Needless to say this would alieviate a HUGE burden on mesh makers. Alpha hud creation is extremely time consuming and not just at the creation stage, but every time they go to update.  Freeing them of this need would let them spend more time and energy on making new meshs and improving the ones you already love!
What we’re asking you fine mesh lovers is to visit this Jira:
Read it carefully and respond! Make sure you also follow and upvote.

Important: JIRAS ARE NOT THE PLACE TO COMPLAIN OR COMMENT ON THE WORK OF MESH MAKERS OR OTHER DESIGNERS. KEEP YOUR COMMENTS ON TOPIC! THIS IS ABOUT A POSSIBLE SECOND LIFE FEATURE, NOT ABOUT TMP.
