More about mesh bodies

After my last post my wife pointed me at the hands and feet of Slink and Maitreya, and I have to concede a valid point there:HandsFeetThe hands & feet are at least part of where the lower complexity of the slink bodies comes from – the hands and feet on Maitreya Lara do look better than on the Slink bodies. Actually, much better.

Of course that does not matter the same to different people – I still prefer Slink over Lara, I’d rather have the support for omega evolved than prettier hands, I don’t really spend all that much time looking at my avatar’s hand or feet up close, after all. But I’m going to remember it for when I blog an outfit that needs closeup shots of jewelry, nails, or shoes.

Oh by the way, if you don’t know what I’m talking about when I go on and on about omega evolved…

what you see here is the “Nebula” shine from star gazer applied to Slink Hourglass, with a rotating bodylight. To get a similar effect on Lara you have to be wearing the additional “tattoo layer” object, and use the tattoo version of the applier, but that will give you the effect in white, not colored like you see here. For that you can try to achieve the tinting with the Lara hud, but as soon as the shine applier is multicolored like this one you’re not going to get the same effect, unless the materials applier actually comes with an actual tattoo as well.

Another example:

Stargazer “Rainbow Tribe” with the same rotating body light. This one, with the multicolored shine, would just not work on Lara.
