I know its been a year since I’ve updated my blog and I’ve still yet to get around to doing new reviews of mesh bodies…
However that said, I’ve put out two new freebies:
And one for Belleza Isis:
Please go get a copy, and hand it out to people as desired.
This kits include, as pasted from the notecard included with the kit:
3 Shapes for Belleza Freya or 3 Shapes for Belleza Isis
– They vary in bosom size, and with each of those I’ve also adjusted the butt, saddle bags, and some muscle.
1 “Zion Kitty Multi-Posing Stand”
– This will give you some handy poses for editing yourself or worn attachments.
5 Props to wear on “Avatar Center”
– These will let you see your proportions, handy if you change these shapes or make your own proportionate shapes. As long as you stretch these uniformly, they can be used to tell if an adult avatar is proportionate regardless of how tall or short it is. They will work regardless of the gender of the avatar.
3 Physics Files
One for normal clothing, one for more firm clothing that holds body motion in place, and one for nude, bikini, and the like unconstrained motion. These will need adjustment to your personal preferences, but should be useful for getting started.
Finally there is a long winded notecard with the instructions above (in more detail) and a list of what shape dials can be modified without losing proportions.
Some tips from that notecard:
When adjusting your own shape, these are the shape dials you can mess with without messing up the proportions this kit helps with:
All dials from:
These individual dials:
Chin Angle – somewhat… it will slightly change your head size. But minor tweaks are OK.
Jaw Angle – Same issue as Chin Angle
Upper Chin Cleft
Chin-Neck – Same issue as Chin Angle
Torso Muscle – this will slightly effect the way we test body width, but it is safe to ignore that impact.
Leg Muscles – Won’t effect my “tests” by extreme values “in isolation” are not proportional.
Hip Width – Won’t effect my “tests” by extreme values “in isolation” are not proportional.
Saddle Bags – Won’t effect my “tests” by extreme values “in isolation” are not proportional.
Foot Size – this dial doesn’t work on the Belleza Body. The Belleza Body’s foot is about 1/4th of a toe too big for these shapes, perfect for an avatar about 1-3″ inches taller, and too small for any shape over that height. But at the height of this kit’s shapes, any issues are so small you won’t notice them unless purposefully testing them like I did for making this kit. I didn’t even know this until I prepared this notecard… In other words, don’t worry about it. 🙂
Any “male specific” dials are safe to adjust.
If you adjust any other dials, you will need to use the props or a healthy pile of rulers to retest your proportions. 🙂
You have my permission to give the contents of this kit out, include it in things, use it as a base for your own shapes (free or commercially sold) and so on. No need to ask. I want to help as many people as possible get their shape proportionate and yet also customized to their self-identity, so I’m all for seeing the items in this spread around.
So not only do you have my blessing to hand this out, but I’m hoping you do so.
And so yeah… I’m a BIG fan of mesh bodies. It might be obvious that a year after my last review, I’ve now since settled on the Belleza Mesh avatar, specifically the Freya body, but both bodies are very high quality. The shapes will more or less work on most bodies – and the included props should help you fix any lingering issues.
Why does this kit have so much more “loot” than my kit for standard sizes? Because that was made in 2011 and this is made in 2015, and I’ve learned a few tricks to make measuring proportions easier. 🙂
