  1. @halebore Aeon Ah, gotcha! I misunderstood what you were saying at first. Yeah, I could definitely see it just being an incompatibility with the way the heads fit. EDIT: And I just noticed now you had edited your comment to be more than the first sentence I quoted, no wonder I was confused! I replied before refreshing so I thought that's all you had said about it, ahahaha!
  2. Is it the same though? I don't recall any neck blends on heads having a second lower blend piece beyond the neck ring. But like I said earlier, I always hated them and found them useless so maybe I just didn't notice. They never worked well for me.
  3. Maybe that's why it felt so innovative in a body to me. I think I'm just used to the head ones that are one piece and never work well. Once I figured out the Legacy one was two pieces for even more blendability and had a range of tones, my mind was a little blown. I think having the bottom section seamlessly come off the upper chest/collar bone makes the difference. I do wish the neck ring was a little more snug, but perhaps that's not possible for the range of motion without the actual neck clipping through.
  4. @AnyaJurelle Legacy was a blessing and a curse. Yes, it gave all of us Maitreya lovers a shiny new option that feels like a more polished version of "us"... but it came with a whole lot of nasty fine print and highlighted all the problems with Maitreya to the point where we feel disappointed if we switch back to what used to be an acceptable body that we were perfectly content with. New and improved Maitreya body when? I know it's been teased that a new generation is in the works. My question is whether or not the lackluster parts of the mesh that we now can't unsee can be fixed while maintaining backwards compatibility with our existing wardrobe. I think compatibility would be a must. But if the mesh isn't refined I don't know if I can go back. I've tasted the forbidden fruit.
  5. @AnyaJurelle Yeah, that's a huge bummer to hear they lost a customer who tried to give them another chance. I haven't had to deal with customer service myself, but what you've described is really shockingly poor service. Especially considering they should be kissing the feet of their customers to erase some of the bad rep they earned in the past. The neck seam is crap, it was one of the first thing I noticed after I bought the body. Sorry to hear they dismissed you like that I wish I could say I could just go back to Maitreya... but sadly, I can't. There are just too many things I like better about Legacy from the actual mesh to the way the materials work to the aforementioned two-piece neck blend that lets me mix my skins.. There were always things that bugged me about Maitreya (like the shoulders/armpits and the shape of the butt), but I never realized how many things I was actually unsatisfied with until I switched to Legacy. I also wish I liked Belleza more. I have their bodies and they are absolutely beautiful but never feel right on me. I like to have small breasts with a natural braless teardrop droop and nothing I can do on Freya, Isis, or Venus has allowed me to achieve that. If it weren't for the breasts, I would have been using Belleza a long time ago. So Legacy it is for me, and I just have to cross my fingers I never have a reason to seek customer service from their team.
  6. Lurker here (not just to this thread but to the forums in general). I decided to come out of the shadows to add my two cents about the neck seam. There is absolutely a terrible issue with the neck seam. I agree with that 100% and in my humble opinion, it should be something The Shops addresses and fixes without attitude and lies. HOWEVER... one thing I don't recall seeing mentioned here or in reviews (granted, it's been a long thread to read and remember fully), is how good the two piece neck blend is. Pre-Legacy, I thought neck blends were useless junk. Never used them, couldn't stand them. But because of the neck seam issue I decided to play with their blend system and I completely converted. Maybe other blends have been as good and I just didn't give them a chance? I'm not sure. I don't recall having two pieces before the way Legacy does it, and I suspect that makes all the difference. There is a ring you wear around your neck as well as a blend piece in the HUD that blends the collarbone area up to that ring. When you get real up close and personal you can of course see the ring layer slightly raised from your neck, but aside from that you can get shockingly good blends. After a couple of months, I've grown so accustomed to "Frankensteining" my body skin and head skin with that blend that I wouldn't want to go back to a body that doesn't allow me to do that with similarly stellar results. I have a tendency to really love certain head skins but hate the body skins, so I find it really cool to be able to wear skins by two different makers at once that I really love. I can also report that while certain windlight settings make the ring look dark, the vast majority do not. And I've tested a bunch both with my normal Ultra/Advanced Lighting setting as well as with lower settings and Advanced Lighting turned off. I strongly encourage any Legacy owners struggling with the neck seam to give the blend system a chance if you're like me and used to ignoring them completely.
  7. I am looking to rent a homestead in a high quality sailing community but there's a catch... I want terraforming rights on my island. I am not looking to do anything crazy, but I crave the freedom to alter my terrain when I am landscaping. I'd also like to switch out my homes with ease as I have a large collection that grows with each new release. I use only high quality original mesh. I am more than willing to adhere to seasonal landscaping as it is actually my preference to enjoy the changing seasons. My taste in architecture is a wide range of "modern" that spans the 20th century. I understand the requirement to keep suitable waters around the island and unused prims for sailing. I have no interest in sci fi, fantasy, or tiki regions. I am respectful of covenant rules, very quiet with few guests, and I have a solid rental history. I'm hesitant to post this because I currently rent a homestead within a great sailing community (for over a year now) but I have been dissatisfied with the fact that I do not have the freedom to rotate builds and landscape my island when inspiration hits. I find myself spending most of my time on the mainland parcel I own or up in skyboxes because I get a bit depressed that I cannot do what I want to do on my homestead without the ability to terraform. I've contemplated also renting a standalone homestead to scratch all my terraforming itches, but it would be far too expensive for me on top of my sailing homestead rental and my monthly mainland tier. I'd rather not leave, but I'd also rather not make a stink about my dissatisfaction and I hope to quietly find a community that may be a better fit for my needs. It should be noted that I'd also be willing to consider taking actual employment within a community as a landscaper and/or estate manager. I have a lot to offer, both in skill and inventory. I also have a fair amount of time to offer, as I spend most of my down time at home in SL (at least a few hours each night) when I'm not working IRL at the clothing store I manage. Please understand this listing is to find a full homestead (65536sqm @ 5000 prims) in the United Sailing Sims. I have no interest in a standalone homestead unless it is a part of a network of connected islands with high standards and similar aesthetic. I realize what I am looking for is extremely rare and may require special arrangements. I am a friendly 11+ year old SL resident who loves landscaping, architecture, and design and I'm seeking a home with others of the same mindset. Please contact me if you think I'd be a good fit for your community. I look forward to hearing from you! - Cyanide Pixie
  8. I know there are a lot of issues with the market place and deliveries, but I just started having a new problem today. The items are actually being delivered to me. I actually accept the box in game. But they are not showing up in my inventory. When I restart my viewer, half the time they are finally there, half the time they are still missing. I have been testing this today on two different computers, using both Firestorm and the official viewer. What's going on? I have already cleared my cache and this is still not working. I just tested again and attempted to purchase one item. I accepted the delivery... and nothing. Nada.
