Need help with alpha layers

Recommended Posts

I have a Maitreya Lara 4.1 and a Catwa Catya head with a skin. If I do the full alpha that came with the skin, the head and body look fine but the eyes disappear. If I put only the body alpha on, then strange hair appears on the head (can't find where that came from). If I put only the head alpha on, then the eyes are back and the head looks good but the body then has splotches all over it. Any advice?1564926845_ScreenShot2019-05-09at9_47_11PM.png.bd64fe989c772144128a5352639fce3f.png574750515_ScreenShot2019-05-09at9_45_54PM.png.e01767469fe39b3d2ffad1a85e9387fa.png406024491_ScreenShot2019-05-09at9_47_18PM.png.0ff6d9e9a4b1047a3237cbfdb1ae4257.png1330709222_ScreenShot2019-05-09at9_45_49PM.png.fc6b6ddd9874409ef319442ba342da5d.png

As Annie mentioned, never use 'wear' from your inventory; always choose 'add' to wear multiples of anything. Using 'wear' will replace a thing of one type (in this case an alpha layer) with another thing of the same type, rather than adding the second thing. To add something, simply right-click it in your inventory and select 'add'.

However, you don't need to wear two separate alpha layers if you have a mesh body and head. Simply wear the full avatar alpha layer that came with your Catya head. This will make your entire underlying system body disappear (that's what you're seeing poke through and make your skin go 'splotchy'). Yes, this means that your eyes will also disappear, but your Catya head folder contains rigged mesh eyes that you can add (remember: add, don't wear!)

If you don't like the colour of those eyes (by default they are blue) then your Catya folder also includes an eye applier HUD. Add it and you'll see it appear on your screen. Click the eye colour that you like best and your eye colour will change to that one. (Many stores sell other different eye appliers, too, but we're aiming to just get you sorted quickly here. You can go shopping later!)

I've also noticed that you're wearing a 'Hitomi Shape'. Make sure that this is a shape created for use with a Catwa Bento head, otherwise it may make your face look a bit strange.
