Basic Requirements and Limitations

  • First, your mesh will need to use our Head, Eye or Lash UVs.
  • This can include:
    • Eyes
    • Lashes
    • Heads (Bakes on Mesh Only)
    • Any mesh that repurposes any of those three textures.
  • It is NOT appropriate for anything with:
    • Makeup Layers
    • Upper Body
    • Lower Body
    • Hands, Feet, Nails, Neckblenders, etc.
  • The Scripts will not work in Transferable Mesh at any time. You will need to take steps to be able to test your creation while it is no-trans. (More info bellow)
  • This Kit requires the inserting of scripts and the editing of prim descriptions.
    • Unless you’ve purchased mesh that is already set up, you will need to modify permissions to make use of this kit.
    • This may interfere with other scripts that make use of the prim descriptions. This usually is not an issue since most commercial products rely on prim names rather than descriptions, but if for some reason you need a copy of the script that uses names instead of descriptions, let me know, I shall send you some.

Creator Instructions

Rez, Link and Configure your Mesh

First Step is to rez all the bits of your mesh. You’re going to put the following keywords into the descriptions

  • head
  • lash

For the Eyes, it’s a little different. The script as built to support a large number of individually textured eyes.
To support this,  place in each eye description

eye:<Name>

<Name> is what will show up on the popup. So no spaces and keep it short.

Typical Example would be

  • eye:leye
  • eye:reye

But if you want to get freaky, you can:

  • eye:LeftEye
  • eye:RightEye
  • eye:MidEye
  • eye:ChinEye
  • eye:NoseEye
  • etc….

Up to 12 different eyes, or groups of eyes. Yes, if you have, for example, a monster with 6 eyes, and want to let people texture more then 12, you can assign the same keyword more then once and all those prims will get textured together!

If you desire a root prim, now is the time to add one.

Set the Permissions of the Scripts and Mesh

BEFORE adding the Omega Scripting change the permissions on it to no-trans. While you’re at it, you might as well set the permissions of the Mesh to no-trans as well. For the security of our Applier Creators, do note that NO Omega Script, this one included, will function while a mesh has Transfer Permissions.

Testing the Listener Scripts

Now, none of the scripts work in a mesh that is transferable, ever. So how do you test your work? You have two options:

  1. Pass the now set up Mesh to an alt and buy them a consumer kit to activate the scripts.
  2. Make a copy of the Mesh and attach a random no-transferable prim to them. This will leave you with a copy of your Mesh that is no-transfer.

Either way, you will need to use the included installer named “Omega System Installer – Just Eyes Kit”

The Bakes on Mesh Button

If your Mesh includes a SLUV Head, or uses some part of the SLUV Head, you can use the included Bakes on Mesh Button.
You can attach it to a HUD for the Mesh, or include it in the packaging.
Either way, remember to:

  • Set the Button Script to No-Trans.
  • Label the appropriate prim descriptions “head”

A IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT UVs

With bakes on mesh coming, I can no longer be the UV policewoman.
It is now up to each individual creator to make sure their head UVs are done correctly!

So if you’re making a head, please.. please PLEASE go here:
http://slpoweredbyomega.com/learning-center/what-is-omega/faq/uvlist/
Grab the head UV and slap it on your head and compare it to the video. Your eye UVs should be just as crisp as that one is.
There’s also a guideline for where to put your nose crease.

Do NOT rely solely on Skins to test your UVs. They’re not defined enough.
Skin-only testing is why skins for certain heads look wrong on other certain heads.
(especially when 2 different heads have opposite imperfections..blah)

If you’re unsure if your UVs are right. Hit me up! I’ll be happy to do a quick UV critique!

And Customers, if something you bought has bad UVs, it’s OK to let the creator know.
Be nice about it, but let them know you’re disappointed.
(Just make sure it’s the item and not the skin that’s wacky.  )

If your issue is Omega Related:

  • First, try The Omega Solutions Support Group:  secondlife:///app/group/276e12ea-52c3-008f-d6c9-31fc8bd2ba73/about
  • If you don’t find help there, contact our CSR: OR Fill out a Support Ticket
  • If your questions are scripting related, send a Notecard to Chellynne Bailey.
    (Note, I can answer simple questions related to the scripts, but I cannot be your scripting tutor)

If your issue is NOT Omega Related, contact the creator of your Mesh!

Remember when asking for help in ANY support group to be polite and specific with your query. For best results, do not open with “hi” or “can someone help me?” but instead open with an explanation of the problem. 

Response rate varies based on who is online and what they know, so be patient. Sometimes you can get a delayed response, and sometimes there’s simply not someone online with an answer to your specific question. In this case, try one of the other support groups/options or come back later and try again when more or different people are around.

If you’re not sure if the problem is Omega, don’t stress, just try any of the above support options. If nothing else, they can help you sort out if it’s an Omega problem or something else.
