Hiya!  ...I debated on whether to put this in the Avatar or Merchant part of the Forums, but I ended up figuring Wanted was the safest spot.  Feel free to move it, if need be.

I just wanted to comment on my experience with the weekly sales and different heads, really.  It's very simple.  I got the CatWa Queen HDPro as part of the freebie promotion when it came out (I'm guessing around March of 2021).  I absolutely love it!  And I also love all the weekly sales (addicted is more like it, actually)!  xD 

...But I have noticed that there are a crap-ton more makeup options for Lelutka Evo X than CatWa HDPro (or even BoM) featured in the weekly sales.  I have asked a huge group (that always chats about their appearance, inventory, etc.) as to why that is, and their response was mostly because Lelutka Evo X is the new trend.  It got me thinking.  I don't remember as many sales or promotions for makeup on CatWa's HDPro when it came out, as I have and now see for Lelutka's Evo X.  I feel like I missed it, missed out, or something!  Like, what happened??  And it looks like Lelutka Evo X came out around the same time as the CatWa HDPro, according to what I could find on Google.  ...So did Creators just assume that everything BoM/system layers were "old news" and that's why they're more focused on Lelutka's Evo X?  Because I see something pretty and I still have L$ to drop ...but it's only made for Lelutka Evo X!  Doesn't actually make me wanna go buy that head, actually causes me the opposite reaction.  ...Why it's a bit annoying, is because Lelutka Evo X can do BoM, but their BoM is applied differently, so their BoM is NOT universal with all BoM compatible heads (their BoM, if it shows up at all, ends up under my chin).  Well, I have also been told this is to deter ripping (copybotting texture stealers), which, like, what is to stop one copybotter that owns a Lelutka from ripping off someone else's Lelutka?  And again... I mean, I see something pretty and I'm just gonna end up keeping my L$, sadly!

So... if you're an awesome Creator who sells pretty things and participates in the weekly sales... Yeah, yeah, Lelutka, yay, and all that... But... Can you please make it for other universal BoM heads too?  I mean, is it really that much of a pain to create for both kinds of heads?  My goodness!  xD 

 

Thanks so very much!!!  :) ♥

I think LeLutka had been slowly gaining in popularity over Catwa. Then LeLutka created a new head with animated kitty ears in October(?) of 2021, then they gave away a free male and female head just before Christmas 2021. The free heads really tipped the scales in their popularity, so now everyone is creating skins for Evo X. I finally got LeLutka mesh heads for all my avatars when the free gift heads came out. I don't like the Evo X setting myself, but these heads can also use Evolution and other skins that map more or less to the SL head map (such as Catwa HDPro). With a touch of a button one can shift between Evolution or Evo X, which is very convenient. The ARC and amount of scripting seem lower than my Catwa Queen HDPro head. The HUDs are easy to use too.

My primary head is Catwa Queen HDPro. There are some Flickr product galleries maintained by one of the CSRs, in case you haven't seen them yet.
