I found the whole mesh body thing really complicated when I first joined. I didn’t have the money to spend on the mesh, I managed to get a free body and thought my avatar looked pretty good - got a world of clothing for it too. However, when looking at inworld employment and sims, it’s becoming more apparent that my choice is going to hinder me as mesh is the preference - yet I don’t want to part from my current. I didn’t see what the big deal was considering I’ve seen plenty gorgeous avatars that don’t have mesh and I adore the way mine looks! But I do agree, it’s the owners of the sims preference so I have simply started looking elsewhere!
