A fully purple avatar?

Question

I'd taken my avatar to one of my favorite places. I was in there for a while. A few people had came in, looking normal. But just now another person not looking quite so normal. They're purple, gives me the loading impression (if they are loading then they've been loading for some time now) the eyes are kinda hollow idk, and the avatar doesn't move smoothy. Its moves quickly, changing its postion every second without moving any arms to do so - if you get what I mean. Kind of pausing then in another postion. Their shape is changing as well. Sometimes male and female I believe, but male mostly. Growing bigger and smaller. 

I teleported away, waited a few minutes and then went back again. No one had shown up when I opened the map. Once teleporting there, I saw they were on the nearby people still. 

It has seemed the avatar has moved, facing another direction now though. 

So what is this? Is this person loading? Is this a weird avatar in general? Is it just me? Other people looked fine when they came in.

Hi Alice,

Your description sounds a li'l odd to me. The closest thing I can think of is that you're seeing the result of SL's new Avatar Rendering Complexity limits kicking in. Avatars more complex than the setting in your viewer will be rendered as a JellyDoll.

Here's more on the subject...

If this isn't what you're seeing, I can't explain it.

Yep, the avatar complexity settings in your viewer are causing this.  Avatars over the complexity level you choose will be replaced by monochrome "jelly dolls" (not always purple though).  You can change the setting in your graphics preferences to see them correctly, at the expense of a somewhat lower frame rate.

Or in crowded places, you can go the other way and make some headway against the lag at the expense of seeing more jelly doll avatars.
