  1. Unreadable display names. Wish it were a fad but doubt its going away.
  2. Yes, don’t go back in time to look for clothing for a modern mesh avatar. The clothing looked bad then and to think it will look any better now on a modern mesh body is mindboggling.
  3. Its a conversation, I’m not insulted. LOL, I used BoM and put on 45 layers of skin.
  4. Your first sentence, your right, makes no sense. Your second sentence, I am making no demands, I am saying that is something I don’t like about it, I’m demanding nothing. As of right now I can just not use it, and if that does not change... Your third sentence, well, now you get it, if it can’t make my dinner, what good is it. /s Your next paragraph, I’m not saying anything about how it should have been done or how it should work, only that it is appearing to me to be very invasive into what does work, and I would regret that. And next, naysayer, I did say “I do see some good to it, but only in addition to what we have”, I just don’t want to be forced into using it. It does fix some problems, alphas clashing I hear, if I don’t half to use it then its a good thing. And the last part, you appear to be addressing the OP. (?) But your last line, “the whole problem is, there is a fundamental misunderstanding of what BoM is”. Don’t stop there.
  5. This thread is a bit over my head, but... My first rule in dressing is go mesh, all the way. If I can find a mesh bra to go under my top, even if I don’t like it all that much, that is what I will wear. My second rule in dressing is use appliers if materials are used. To me materials are very important for appliers. That is my major dislike of BoM, no materials. I saw someone say that someone has a workaround but I have not been able to find it, so I’ll believe it when I see it, and I haven’t. And my third rule in dressing that overrides all other rules is, if it needs an alpha look for something else to wear. Granted I’m just a dumb user, but I have rules and I attempt to follow them. To the tune ‘War’... BoM, huh, what is it good for, absolutely nothin. Well maybe not that bad, I do see some good to it, but only in addition to what we have and not as a replacement. Not that that is the intention, I don’t know, but if it is I will never update my avatar ever again. And if that is not possible then I’m back the Linden Lab Classic avatar, if I’m going to look bad at least it will be free.
  6. You appear to like coffee here... It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. It is by the Beans of Java that thoughts acquire speed, the hands acquire shaking, the shaking becomes a warning. It is by caffeine alone I set my mind in motion. “Unknown”
  7. Wow, nicely done! And you got rid of your neck seam from the first photo.
  8. Have you looked at <UTILIZATOR> - Normie Head. Its only 500L and is modify. I did not see your photo before I posted, but I think Normie would work well for you. Just a thought.
  9. As far as the price goes, keep an eye on Akeruka, they have sales what seams like quite often. Right now their Beta BoM head is 1k, it will go up to 5k when finished. Kind of soon I think, and you will get free updates. My only mesh head I use was free from AK and after adjusting it some it looks nothing like the ad poster, I even came close to my system head that I liked, but the mesh is better (IMHO). But it is a bit of work, but I really stink at this and I managed. And my alt has a different AK head that was also free, I just don’t have the funds to go plunking down 5k for a head, but I have two avatars that have free mesh heads, and that is all they use, in fact the only heads they have.
  10. Thanks, I learned something. But I have never seen that, I don’t use makeup beyond what comes with my head, and not much of that, I’m not very good at this.
  11. As a consumer I now have my Body, Head and Viewer all updated and I like what I see. It hasn’t changed. I don’t buy skins, I like the skin I’m in, I love my Head and Body, so I am basically not paying any attention to BoM, for me, nothing has changed. And everything was free so that was good. I have and use Omega, the Materials aspect of it is what matters, Big Time What Matters, I mean, Really Big Time What Matters. So how do I do Materials with BoM? Everyplace I look I see that BoM does not support Materials, is that true? And if so, This is a step forward? Will BoM support Materials down the road? How long? I just don’t see it being of any value to me, others love it and that is great, but I don’t see me using it at all. And people talking about it fixing alpha clashing, if you need alphas, your clothes don’t fit, go shopping! And as far as complexity goes, I am almost always lower than anyone around me, always, so that part is of no help to me. Just some thoughts from a Consumer about BoM.
  12. I have two avatars, one lives in Meadowbrook (over 4 years now) and one in Bellisseria. I personally have more lag in Bellisseria than Meadowbrook. But everyone I guess is different. The houses in Meadowbrook have more open space in them, for me that is critical and why I like Meadowbrook houses better, but Bellisseria is pretty and laid out much better. I just live in my sky box in Bellisseria, in Meadowbrook I don’t need a sky box.
  13. I went to a mesh body for one reason and one reason ONLY, to get rid of alpha cuts. I don’t use them, period! Okay, if I buy something cheap that has no demo, then maybe, but most of that just gets deleted if it does not fit. You can only use clothing that is made for the body you are using. A mesh body is better but way more difficult to purchase clothing for, absolutely most of the clothing on the market will not fit your body, no matter what body you have. I consider the market broken because of this making most of the clothing usable. I have resorted to using two different mesh bodies that are kind of close to each other, that gives me a larger assortment of clothing to pick from. But I think mesh is better, its just way, way more expensive and way, way less selection of what fits
  14. I have the Maia [AK]-AKERUKA head and got a free update to BoM with redelivery. Looks like they are releasing them one head at a time as they are updated, and a number of them have already been done.
