Complete version of D-Ring Armband’s out!
I guess I will spend the rest of my night re-taking skin mods pics so everyone can see what they look like under default lighting…
Cheese & Rice!!!
What on earth for? Default (midday) lighting makes everything look hideous. D:
My sim’s baby grew up into a child and his voice… HIS VOICE IS SO HIGH PITCHED. Also, his randomised outfit looks… ohno.
My sim kid’s random outfit included sunglasses - I took them off and she has tiny eyes
I think it was meant to be. The game knew. I made the sunnies part of all of her outfits. c_c
I’ve been playing with Marvelous Designer to see if it can speed up my workflow at all. It’s a great program, fun mucking about with clothing patterns!
Sadly I’ve hit a snag with things like hoods (for hoodies) that are draped on the back. I’m not able to retopologize them to my satisfaction; I don’t want to remodel the entire interior of the hood, it’s a waste of polygons. However, I can’t make a ‘capped’ hood interior and bake a normal map to that from the MD model, either.
I want to do it right. There’s a lot of badly-done clothing for SL that’s been created in MD.
Feels like there’s a solution staring me in the face and I just don’t know it yet…
The snapshot below shows an overlay of 2 legs. The pink overlay is a leg made by my good friend, Frick Finkler. Her Kawaii Legs to be exact.
The leg it’s on top of, is the animal leg on the extremely popular, Utilizator Kemono avatar, made by…
As much as you can make a legitimate claim with the Kawaii legs. You can also look at the fact that those kawaii legs can have their shape molded but He has had Kemono prototypes far before he had the kemono made itself. Pretty much years before hand But it doesn’t surprise me at all that he took a design that worked and ran with it.
Most importantly if you are trying to cost him sales you aren’t going to do anything. If anything its referenced and that type of leg shape tends to be a very simple thing to pull off and suits the style. Lastly does Frick give a shit? Last ive seen shes made a number of Kemono products.
Lets not try to start this little furry drama OMG COPIED DESIGN crap. Considering the amount of ideas modders and people who make mesh take from each other as is in the furry market and try to start some shit over it.
Last note. If its an issue, Make a better fucking product people. Be competitive and give people a reason to buy and sell better and better products.
I do actually “give a shit,” thank you very much. I’ve been told about the legs looking similar since the avatar was released and until my friends made this overlay, i had no idea it lined up 95% with my own mesh. Here’s my issue: those were my number one selling item and now they do not sell.
Utilizator is perfectly capable of making and designing things on his own, that’s another thing that gets me. He’s talented and that’s obvious, why be sneaky or lazy?
I can’t speak for anyone else by I’m not personally trying to cost him sales, in fact I just spent a WHOLE MONTH modding his avatar and now that I’m finished with it, I don’t even particularly want to release it but i will. In a situation like this there is literally nothing you can do, just suck it up and live with it. I appreciate the fact that people are standing up for me, though, don’t get me wrong.
Wait til you get your work ripped, traced or reuploaded, this has been happening to me and other people who try to make a legitimate effort in Second life and then you’ll understand why “little furry drama OMG COPIED DESIGN” matters. Pouring your time into something and having it shat on doesn’t bring around a particularly good feeling.
on top of ALL that, i just received an IM from Utilizator saying that he DID reference my legs:
[08:57] Utilizator Mode: (Saved Wed Sep 03 09:03:22 2014)this is true, i did reference screenshots i took of your legs
[08:57] Utilizator Mode: (Saved Wed Sep 03 09:06:46 2014)when i was prototyping the kemono, i used a bunch of furry body parts from different creators to assemble an avatar that would give me a good idea of what i want to do, i have redesigned everything on paper as time went and meshed everything out but i really loved the shape of your legs and my designs didnt look right without that leg shape so i decided to go with the same shape.
[08:57] Utilizator Mode: (Saved Wed Sep 03 09:07:59 2014)i did however model my legs from scratch, you can see it if you take a look of the wire frame and my legs have a different foot with toes on it
[08:57] Utilizator Mode: (Saved Wed Sep 03 09:09:54 2014)either way, i didnt realize it at the moment but it was probably dumb of me not credit you for it.
[09:04] Occvlt Qveen (frick.finkler): thank you for this
I appreciate him being truthful and that is the end of this story, everyone who’s mad about it being brought up, calm your mother fucking tits.
I’m glad Utilizator’s given an honest response.
I caved and got Sims 4. c_c
Felt like I needed to put more time into TS3 after finishing my expansion pack collection earlier in the year, but look… on Steam alone I clocked 183 hours, then I moved it over to Origin, and had the disk version of the game prior to Steam… goodness knows how many hours I’ve dumped into it :P It’s okay to move on.
*waits for midnight Australia launch*

Branch horns are for the sim-wide mini-hunt at the Faire. After the event it’ll be added to the mainstore’s freebie wall.
Everything wants to crash on me today and lose the last 30m of work. >8C Always when I have things right how I want it!
If you send me a note card can you please label it something relevant rather than “Question”!? Because I have had so many god damned style questions lately, all titled “Question" which makes me think I have to log in ASAP and answer this really important question about my product!!!!!! But they’re not. It’s really stressful omg. Title it "outfit question -product name-" or something!?!?!?!? pls. This is really annoying!
but also I don’t often remember wtf I was wearing in ads?! Sometimes my bf or my friends model so I wouldn’t know what they have on?!?!!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?
*crawls into a hole*
The ambiguous notecards are a fact of life, sadly. I have in my profile that I prefer IMs, so I can read ‘em when offline.. doesn’t seem to help. XD I wish we could read notecards offline.
I actually see people asking in the Utilizator chat what the extra bits are in your vendor pics, usually hair. I’ve told them ‘ask the creator’ a few times! Sorry it stresses you out! Maybe make a quick list of stuff as you & friends make the ads?
