Nanellia Posted June 22, 2020 Share Posted June 22, 2020 (edited) Hi. So I'm VERY new at Second Life and virtually know absolutely nothing about it or anything about what I'm doing, so please bare with me as I try to explain my issues. Since I'm a noob, I've been scoping out the freebie spots as a means to improve my avatar a bit and feeling out the game a bit before deciding if I would want to invest real money into this. I stumbled across a free head by Dream, and it's the Ciara Bento Head (https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Dream-Gift-Ciara-BENTO-Mesh-Head-BOM-stayathome/19279327), and I'd also found a new body, and it's the e-Body curvy version (https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/ABAR-eBODY-CURVY-v86-BENTO-AVATAR/13193218). The main issue I'm having is trying to figure out how to match the skin tones of the head and the body. I wanted my avatar to be of a darker complexion, but I can't make the head that I'm dealing with match the e-body. Keep in mind that I'm dealing with the free versions of these products for right now. I was able to change the skin tone of the body through playing with the HUD menu (I barely know what that is or how it works), but that is the extent of my success. The Ciara Head still does not match whatsoever. I've read things about skin and head appliers but have absolutely NO head how they work, which ones I'd have to buy for the products I've mentioned already, or if free ones compatible with the head and body I have even exist so that I could try them out. I'm also very confused about how skins work and how they tie into the complexion of the head and body. Assuming I had the right appliers for the head and body (whatever that means), if I used a skin, would it automatically work and apply to the entire avatar because I had the correct appliers? I'm also confused at the process of 'unpacking' certain items and how that works, because sometimes whenever I try to unpack things in my inventory, it doesn't work. I'm just very confused and hope I'm explaining myself somewhat decently. Please bare with me. I'm slowly trying to learn this game and how it works and am still VERY confused and overwhelmed by the interface. I tried playing this game before some years ago and ultimately gave up because I was super lost, so it'd be nice to get things right this time around. I'd really appreciate a thorough explanation about this. And please try to explain things the best way that you know how, as I am new and am not familiar with much of the terminology that is used concerning this game or the avatars. REALLY dumb it down for me... like A LOT. 😂 Thanks so much. ♥️ Edited June 22, 2020 by Nanellia 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
