  1. A HUD is a scripted object designed for a specific purpose. A HUD can be used with anything it's made for, whether it's prims, avatar animations, sounds, or mesh! However, they can't be used with anything they're not made for, so if you're trying to use a HUD that's made for... Let's say it's made for changing the texture of a clothing item, it's only going to work with that clothing item and only for changing the texture of that specific item.
  2. I'm using the wing bone chain as a set of torso limbs, but I've run into a bit of an issue specifically with the Wing4 bones. I'm not really sure why this is happening, every other bone in the chain works as expected. I've applied the bone reposition as the rest pose, I've checked multiple times that it's rigged to the correct bone, I've looked at and compared every single setting I could find and they're not any different between the Wing4 bones and any other bone. I've tried everything I can think of but nothing seems to change it in the slightest. I'm using avastar 2.0-23 with blender 2.77, if that makes much of a difference. This issue doesn't seem to happen with the bento angel demonstration av from what I can tell? I'd really appreciate some help if anyone has any idea what might be going on. Thank you! Edit: Another thing to note is that it follows the rest of the bone chain just fine when they move.
  3. With all the Paws heads you'll have to do some modification to your shape to make the eyes fit into your head, it should've come with a notecard giving instructions on what slider settings you need for it to be ideal. Don't move them around in edit mode, it'll cause more problems than it fixes because then they won't be centered on the eye bones.
  4. Linden Lab has to abide by United States law, since it's based in California. Under 18 is still considered legally a minor in the US, and most states have their age of consent as 18, California being one of them. I'd say play it safe and just age the character up to 18 if you want them to be pregnant/a parent, it's not that much of a difference and it makes sure that you won't get in trouble with anyone.
  5. Many omega appliers have mutliple buttons to let you pick which layer the applier puts the texture on. Do any of the appliers have something like this? If not, do the LOGO heads let you take off the layers? If they do let you take off the layers, one work-around would be to take one layer off, apply the texture, take the layer with the texture off, put the other layer on, and repeat. It's a little tedious, but whatever works, right? If all else fails, contact the creator of LOGO for help, most creators are pretty good about customer support.
  6. I don't see a reason why the animated heads couldn't be updated to Bento by the creator of the heads. As of right now they use attachment point rigging, which is where you take some of the attachment points, use a deformer, and animate them as normal bones for whatever you're doing. It's complicated and a pain in the butt to do, and obviously not ideal in the long run. Updating them to Bento would break existing animations for it and take a good while, but in the long run it'd be easier on the creator and have more variety in what it can do. However, Alwin is right. Everything already existing will still work, it'll all still look amazing, it'll just have less features than Bento. There's nothing stopping you from getting another head down the line after Bento is released, you'd just have something to use in the mean time! By the time one comes out that you like, you'll probably have already gotten the money to get it again.
  7. Well, it depends on how long you're willing to wait. There's no solid ETA on when Bento will arrive, and it might be a while after that still before someone makes a mesh head in a style you like. If you're willing to save your money and wait until whenever that day comes, definitely wait until Bento! If not, I have friends who swear by Catwa's rigged heads and all are glad they invested in one, because the heads are so nicely made.
  8. That was a very well thought out response, thank you. I'll be clear here: I'm at least somewhat involved in both communities in this discussion. I'm a gay man, I'm very familiar with what makes a twink or a femboy, I was very breifly involved in SL femboy groups a couple years ago. However, I'm also involved in kid roleplay communities both on and off SL for many personal reasons, mainly involving childhood abuse that I'd rather not go into detail on. Being in both groups as well as being an abuse survivor makes me hypervigilant about any potentially pedophilic content. Gay men have had a long running stigma of being percieved as pedos, child roleplayers are often accused of being pedos even if nothing even vaguely suggests it. Stuff like bondage gear for a mesh body that's intended to be a child (even if it's being used to make an adult avatar) hurts the communities on a base level because it strengthens that pedophilic tie to both. I'm not telling people not to use the SMB body to make adult avatars if they so wish, but y'all also have to realize that it is intended as a child body, that's what many people use it for, and without context that what you're making is supposed to be for the people who use it as an adult, it looks extremely bad for everyone involved. People will see it as a child avatar before seeing it as a femboy if they're familiar with the brand of body.

Since I assume you HAVE reported/AR'd this, and since you both still seem awfully cross, I guess LL didn't act. So, pull up your big girl panties and deal. I'm not cross, my original question that inspired this thread was just asking if it was worth doing AR reports for these kinds of things or not, and people seem to be misunderstanding why exactly I'm upset about it so I've been trying to clarify. I don't want to waste Linden Lab's time with AR reports that won't go through, that's why I was asking about the policies. (Also I'm a guy, nice assumption there )

No children are involved, only adults. An avatar cannot be a sexual object by itself, only the person wielding the avatar can do that. A picture of a child avatar in a bikini also is not child pornography. One cannot tell the intent, or even assume the use of, a child avatar in SL. THough it is not my cup of tea, unless you were to observe private SL users with child avatars and spy on them - there is no reason to suspect they are using the avatars in the parameters that a virtual world like SL allows. If you can't look at an innocent picture (or advertisement) of clothing for a child avatar - without sexualizing it - perhaps the issue is more in your mind than it is in the sellers'. Also, even if there were 'questionable' activity by consenting adults in SEcond Life, and whether or not I find the subject/action/fetish disgusting - I will defend any roleplay by any (ADULT VERIFIED ACCOUNT), do do what ever they please. - SECOND LIFE IS A VIRTUAL WORLD, NOT THE REAL WORLD. Addendum: Hopefully such questionable activities should be restricted to private sims only;. I don't believe the femboi-humping dude or the dog-humping dude observed in the Premium default user homes was appropriate... The ageplay policy says otherwise. It's a matter of legality and publicity issues (see the german news outlet that lead to the ban of ageplay) rather than just strict morals here. Linden Lab doesn't want ageplay content of any kind to exist after they were publicly aired out for it. I asked the original question wanting to know if this was content that was allowed for child avatars to have, I was told it was as far as anyone could tell even if it was distasteful, I left it at that until this discussion was brought up. I contacted support and they refuse to comment on the situation, so we're just kinda left in the dark on this for now.

By your logic, doesn't that mean that there's an issue when clearly sexually inclined content is made for the default avatar? No, because the system body isn't a child by default. How is the SMB body a child "by default"? The body needs to be worn over a shape to be usable and it will take the height of whatever shape you're wearing. If your shape is 8 feet tall, guess what? You've got a very slender 8 foot tall avatar. The SMB mesh body with those outfits could certainly be used for prohibited behavior. The same body and outfits with different settings can be used for non-prohibited behavior. You can say exactly the same thing about the system avatar.  It's made for the purpose of being a child. Anything made for it is by default made for a child avatar.

Even if twinks and fem boys use it, that doesn't make it not a child avatar because that's it's intended use. I'm 50 years old. I just read a "children's book." Does that make me a child? That's false equivalence. You're not doing anything to come off as a child, people using a mesh body clearly labeled as being a child are doing something to come off as being a child. It's a mesh body. Full stop. And it's one of the very few available that is useful for a slender person while also having a variety of clothing for it, which means it's useful for people who want that sort of body even if it was made for being a "child" and they aren't portraying a "child." The issue here is that the SMB body is by default a child avatar. There is nothing spcifying that the clothing I was using as an example were made explicitly for twinks/femboys, which is my issue here. I'm not arguing that people can't use it as a twink/femboy body with the shape altered, the issue comes in when there's clearly sexually inclined content made for it, because it's a child avatar by default.

Edit: I think some of y'all need to brush up on the fact that there are laws in the US (where Second Life is hosted) that disallows simulated child porn such as with child avatars. Additionally here's the page for Linden Lab's policy on child avatars. Also, my distaste with the speedos isn't the clothing in and of itself, it's the deliberiately sculpted bulge on it. My issue with the bikini is the focus being the girl's butt.
