The RenderUnloadedAvatar setting forces the viewer to render an avatar, whether it has all the information needed to render it or not. If you want your avatar to look like what others are seeing, you need to fix the problem that is causing your avavatar not to render. Otherwise the viewer uses Ruth (default avatar) to fill in the missing parts.

There are 2 primary causes. A poor Internet connection is one. Try SpeedTest.net to see how your connection is actually performaing. When in-world press Ctrl-Shift-1 (this is a toggle so press it again to turn it off) to open the viewer statistics panel. Look for Ping and Lost Packets. If ping is over 250ms then you MAY have a connection problem. Visit another couple of regions to see if ping improves. Ping can be a sim problem too, which all you can do is move to another region.

Look at Packet Loss. If it is over 2 or 3 % you will have problems. Again try another region to see if it is you or SL. If it is you, talk to your ISP. You can send them the SpeedTest.net results if it shows packet loss. If your wireless, try using a network cable.

Also, try these two quick fixes. Ctrl-Alt-R, which is rebake. It forces both the viewer and SL servers to take another look at your avatar and try to render it. The other quick fix is to change groups... set any other group you beleong to to avtive. Odd as it sounds this is an effective fix.

If these fixes are not working, read this: Avatar Render Problems: Ghost Cloud Smoke Ball Ruth It gets into the technical stuff. It explains why sometimes this problem happens and how to generally avoid the problem.
