Cool. Is body advanced material kit at the store now too or not yet?. I'd like to make wet materials for Erika.

I haven't been to the store this week.. I just seen the update information on their flicker right after I logged in and seen they sent me 1.5.

So the gauntlet has been dropped and Erika is rising to the challenge. Given that Erika is doing so many things right, I do hope they gain ground in this one.

Came out of the box Mod, set up for BOM, and in Mask mode.

Here I have unlinked it, not to break it up and 'do stuff' just yet... but to show that it's only 4 linked pieces of mesh.

This is why this body is so low in lag. And I need to correct myself - as this is the case, this is lower lag than Belleza was even after I fixed Belleza.

Erika's lag is "probably" on par with the best made of furry bodies. As in - way down there.

I say "probably" because I lack the tools to get specific proof. But by all the metrics we tend to use to guess these things, it's winning.

 

Random thought:

For years I've wanted to have my Sci-Fi alt have glowing 'robot skin' - which to do right means setting the skin to 'emissive mask', which I was able to do in seconds as the body is Mod.

You really should be asking why you would ever tolerate anything not being moddable.

But by being moddable, you can change any specific aspect you desire to change on your own. Or get modkits that change things for you. Make modkits, etc.

Issues can be fixed, changes can be made, your have control over your own uniqueness.

 

Above I noted one example - making the texture emissive mask which will let me add 'glow lines' for a Sci Fi Cyborg look. Other examples would be linking in new parts, putting things like my AO right into the body, removing parts I'm not using, and so on.

I was not aware other mesh bodies, or the big names were mod. In that vein the dev kits should be freely available as well. Freely meaning given out upon request with no limitations.

Need... An answer really depends on you. If you haven't realized a 'need' to modify your avatar beyond what you can with the body's HUD and SL system controls then you probably don't "need" a Mod-OK body.

If you build, you understand how SL Prims work. Imagine not having any of the SL prim editing tools and having to depend on third party products. Those people that are SL building proficient find No-Mod anything in SL as overly restrictive. I suspect most of those people see a personal "need" to have a Mod-OK body.

Other than Belleza, and EVERY FURRY BODY IN EXISTENCE, they aren't.

In the Human Body market people have been tolerating being abused for years... Belleza V6 changed that, and Erika quickly joined in but better done.

 

If you read the Belleza v6 thread - you'll see the need for Mod was massive there because basic V6 came out with all the bad stuff still attached to the body. Erika doesn't need Mod to be fixed, it will need mod to be expanded upon in ways new creators will show us over time.

 

In the Furry community, since the first body customization came out in 2003, the tradition has always been to let the customer actually use the product. ;)

 

Solidly agree with you by the way, on the dev kits. That stuff needs to get tossed around like a free sample from your local dealer. ;) Get everyone hooked.

TMP did that when they closed up to vanish from the grid (at the time we didn't know they were retooling to return as Legacy). At a month long event there was a box you could just click to get the whole TMP Dev kit.

And back to Furries, with furry bodies the dev kit is often given out in a notecard that comes with the purchase of the body - no questions asked, every homie gets a chance to play; some of them become great new creators and others... get clicked past.

 

One thing about the furry community and embracing Mod, is it means all the 'kewl new ideas' always start over there, and then people on Human avatars "sometimes" get them years later. Erika could help this flip - because more people use Human bodies.

Can anyone tell me if that Body from Marketplace:

https://marketplace.secondlife.com/p/Kalhene-ANYA-BENTO-fitted-mesh-bodyHead/19973384

Is THIS THAT BODY on the Photo i added?

Please help me out, cause the LM from ERIKA BODY says:  YOU GOT NO ACCESS!

No, it is not the Erika body.

Why you got that message? No idea. Maybe the region is down with maintenance. Maybe the owner has closed to redecorate the store.

But I notice that the Kalhene Erika and its demo is gone from the Marketplace. Maybe somebody has heard if the creator is hit with a DMCA.

They're still there:

I was wondering why I wasn't seeing them until I remembered to set the maturity rating to General, Moderate, (and) Adult.

Ah, TY. It has been so many DMCA filed against mesh bodies and heads, I am getting paranoid.

Aw shucks... just updated to 1.5 lol... I'm reworking my alt that uses Erika... not too many outfits yet so I'll have to update her body ASAP. She has checked out the new location... loves it.  Hopefully someone can create business/work outfits for Erika, I'd love to see that. I'm sure she'd be an excellent CEO LOL 

Now I need more java... later. :)
