If not, eventually their trousers will slide down and expose their shirt or if they are completely brain dead nutcases with no style, class or taste, they are not wearing a long shirt and their underpants will be on public display. I know, sounds insane, but some "men" walk around like that. I keep warning them about that but it appears to be on purpose! /me shakes her head. I reckon style died somewhere
  2. Uh oh, is the sky falling too? If you see four guys on skeletal horses then I wouldn't renew any magazine subscriptions for a while.
  3. There would undoubtedly be commercial reasons to develop these sensory addons/plugins. I see online clothes selling getting a boost for one. If you ever look at a woman clothes shopping she will never stop touching the fabric while she checks out it's pattern, colours and price tag. This tactile inspection is of course an impossible task online along with a virtual changing room to see if the garment fits as I've been informed, told, left in no doubt "educated" that 99% of clothes' size labels are false and always display a size two sizes larger than the garment in question. Apart though f

The Parametric Deformer Project involves modifying the avatar code in the SL client so that mesh clothing will conform to the avatar mesh. The client has has to have access to to the avatar mesh since the client is where your avatar is drawn/baked. Sy wondered if the source code could be used to create something that would modify other objects. I don't believe that will be possible. Thanks Parhelion. So the open source code once it's available can't be used/modified to perform the same

Madelaine McMasters wrote: in part ....the way you'd want it to work is for the SL engine to accept "delta" mesh descriptions, which somehow allow you to define a mesh only as a deformation from some underlying thing, not as an absolute.... OK, that would make sense or at least it made sense to me. I suppose that leads me to the question that when the code becomes final and is open source how easy would it be to make that cast or mould, as it were, absolute.
  6. I quickly checked your products and indeed as far as your creations are concerned I don't think this project has any application for you unless you wanted to update all your prim and sculpt products to a mesh product by grabbing their shape with a deformer as a base for a new mesh version of them. This project is being initiated as a solution for better fitting mesh clothes, which it would undoubtedly improve. On the other hand it is creators like yourself who might be affected by the negative application of this project. I'm ambivalent about it at the moment, but am just wondering if this
  7. I'm not sure if you are understanding my premise. Let's say that you are a furniture creator and have made an exquisitely detailed table in either prims, sculpts or even mesh, you've made it no copy and no mod and it sells very well. I buy one of your tables and then using a mesh deformer I'm able to wrap a mesh around it to match your table exactly. I can then take your table back into inventory or delete it. I now have a perfect copy of your table bar any textures or scripts you might have had in your original. My copy would, because it was my mesh, be full perms. Therefore I can now
  8. Some of you will be aware of the Parametric Deformer Project, which in a nutshell will allow mesh clothes to wrap exactly to an avatar shape. The eventual project will be open source software for others to adapt for other mesh uses within SL. Now, given that you'll be able to wrap a mesh to an avatar, which is for all intents and purposes an object, how much of a jump is it to be able to wrap a mesh around any object in SL? If it is or will be possible then there are some distinct advantages for sure. All retailers of products will be able to update their products to mesh by simply wrappin
  9. Hmm, jumping on a fairgound ride with a couple of those babies swirling around your stomach...lovely. :smileysurprised:

  11. I thought the Scots led the world in heart attack food with their celebrated deep fried Mars bars and deep fried pizzas. It seems though that America, the land of the unnecessary calorie, has really taken the biscuit as it were with this one.

Shhh, the first rule about the F.I.C is that you don't mention the F.I.C..........oops.
