Mayastar still relevant?

Recommended Posts

1. I did look at the marketplace reviews.    All 36 are old minus one negative review that is the most current. 

2. I have been gone a while and catching up to how the new skeleton works, and Animesh, so I'm concerned if Mayastar is updated and worked out kinks to be fluid  for use. 

3. I have googled youtube videos, and I'm failing at finding anything up to date. 

4. I even joined the in world group for 450L and got no responses. 

5. My goal here is seeking the opinions of current users of Mayastar, and my questions for you are: 

Does it work? Is it relevant? Is it worth getting? What am I missing is this a necessary plugin?  And what about it do you like and not like? What do I need to know? What advice would you give yourself going in? Is there a place you're getting good information from?

If you are in the group and can see the owners, see when they logged on last. Look up the maker's profile and see if it seems she is still active.

I can say that it would NOT be relevant in Sansar. Marvelous Designer is really needed now. Regular rigged clothing won't work with all the custom avatars.   Might want to ask in a MAYA forum since not all that many folks use Maya here in SL.     Having a 450 group fee join is probably a red flag (at least it would be in my book).  

Google reports info on articles and videos four or five years old.   Doesn't look promising to me. I am not a Maya user.

MayaStar is actively developed and currently is at version 6 since a few months, with new and relevant additions to the older workflow. Many of the new features are my own contributions to the base code, and many others (including but not limited to code refactoring) were added by Cathy, the owner. The group joining fee is to keep trolls and disturbers (ad bots specifically) from coming in and pollute the group chat, you'll be refunded by Cathy as soon as she gets a chance to log in.

It works and to rig is fluent and easy to use taking advantage of Maya native tools. Just learn those and MayaStar will even out the remainder of the way towards SL. Whether I like it or not... Well I'm one of the two makers, so I'll leave it at that... If you have more specific questions, you can ask me.
