Materials Catwa head applier :SOLVED:

Recommended Posts

SOLVED! I contacted Catwa's owner, they told me it's not possible, only for skins this option works.

Short hint for those who want to make such an effect (works for skins only!) 

1. Follow instructions, use any textures as diffuse and normal maps and only specular map must be your glitter effect.

2. Later when you generate your script do everything as always and just remove textures code between "" quotes for diffuse and normal. It will look like:

        cmd += [""];
        cmd += ["blahblahblahblahblah........blahblah"];
        cmd += [""];

3. Have fun!

 

Hello! how to make such an effect on the Catwa head? I managed to make a regular tattoo, applied on a blush layer. but I didn’t even find custom material button for blush in the master hud, only on skin. on this as I understand it, such effect goes to the skin layer, or am I wrong? then what layer does such texture go to? maybe i need some kind of a special applier?

Edit: I used Catwa dev kit for my tattoo, but couldn't find any materials option there.

IMPORTANT! THIS METHOD DOES NOT WORK ANYMORE, BECAUSE CATWA CLIP BROKE IT AND MY APPLIERS MAGICALLY DISAPPEARED FROM INVENTORY!

Don't get too paranoid. Whatever you've managed to convince yourself of, other residents can't "magically delete" items from your inventory.

In fact it's impossible to even script any kind of functionality to make inventory items disappear.

For reference for other people:

I would like to correct you about that you can't make a material applier with catwa and it only works for skins only. This is false information because 3 major Designers in second life have made it work without making a skin for it. To make a material shine effect you need the new version 4.0 Catwa Bento Dev Kit that you get with your catwa bento head. there is a script in there called Skin + Materials as you can see here in my attached picture of the Catwa Bento Dev kit. Catwa did not break it or other designer would not be able to make the shines that they do

MISSMajerSFL is correct, and has shared with me this video, showing a 'zodiac shine' Catwa-specific applier by This Is Wrong (which is not a skin applier, as evidenced by the fact that her skin remains unchanged beneath it).

I would hope that - as a creator - the OP was using the most up-to-date version of the Catwa Bento heads, which features everything they need - including a special materials section - rather than trying to finagle scripts on an older version to find some kind of workaround. As MISSMajerSFL has stated, several other creators are already producing appliers using those heads and their included dev kits.

As to suggesting that Catwa 'broke it deliberately' you do realise that she simply cannot do that without updating every single head all over again and changing the scripts and HUDs? I won't even touch on the accusation that she somehow managed to remove the appliers from your inventory...
