Help with Maitreya skin

Recommended Posts

I recently got back into SL and went to purchase the only mesh body I know about...Maitreya Lara. I just bought a new skin for it but it won't load all the way...I have reset and everything. Any help?

It looks like you are not wearing the alpha that comes with the body

If you are wearing the alpha, it hasn't kicked in all the way.  Lag can do that, and SL has been having problems with that for a couple of weeks.  Remove it, go to a low lag area and reapply, and wait

Are you wearing a mesh head?

If you are, sometimes when you put on the the alpha for the head it will remove the body alpha in the process. Not sure why this happens.

Most mesh heads come with two alphas, one of which covers the entire body. Try using that instead of the separate head/body alphas.

Now I remember something from a month ago. Lots of people had problems with their alphas not working properly.

The fix then, was to just go into appearance mode and out again.

If the alpha wasn't working then you'd see that 'layered skin' effect across the whole body. The problem is caused by the jeans themselves. (I know this only because some designers of male clothing do the same thing). I looked up Villena jeans on Marketplace, and found those specific ones: the Distorted Boyfriend Jeans. Note the below included in the description:

There's also an image of the skin HUD and tinting options on Marketplace:

In short: the jeans come with included mesh 'bare legs' that you need to tint. Those bare legs cannot be disabled or removed. What you need to do is hide the legs of your Maitreya body and use the jeans' tinting HUD to tint the bare legs as close to your skin tone as you can.

I definitely didn't notice this! Thank you, and thank you to all who posted.
