  1. Shine (specular) has looked good in SL for a long time. There are a lot creators that use it... builders, clothing, hair and applier creators have been using them for years. It can be abused and/or used wrong. Settings to high or messing with material sliders while not having Advanced lighting enabled can lead to some very strange looking AVs to those of us with ALM on. But it is used by many. ... Some shadow baking is usually needed, I think most can agree on that. But to say there is no other way for shadows...is not true. For those that run on ultra with shadows enabled, th
  2. Catwa heads have had materials enabled for years. I used the specular slider way back when Catya was first released. What is new about the HDpro is more about the "HD" textures now being used. Materials are nothing new in SL for mesh heads... or anything for that matter.
  3. Your answer is here: Scroll down to "Working with the new channels" ... There you will find how to use transparency with the Aux channels.
  4. Most mesh clothing that makes use of the auto-hide script are no mod. Not much you can do about them at that point. You either live with them that way or wear something else. The newer auto-hide script for the Maitreya, works differently though, as even if they are in no mod items, they can be changed or deleted. This change came with the V5s.
  5. Maitreya includes the BOM addon parts & addon HUD. It is for those that wish to wear BOM clothing and be able to smooth their bits. The addon also has toe caps for use with BOM stockings.
  6. You could, completely kill the body scripts. No auto-hide would ever work on it again Granted you could not use any HUD option at all. But, if one were clever.... they could use rigged nail addons and only BOM for everything else ! Having the option to disable auto-hide (using the body HUD) all together is not a bad idea though.
  7. If you use the 'save as' function when you are done fiddling, that saves it as a new and separate shape...your original will not be touched. But as with anything, there are many ways to get where you are going. Do what works best for you
  8. You can save your current look by saving your outfit. Not really sure why you need to make a copy of the shape, unless you plan to make changes...where as you can just use the 'save as' function. Wearing the Demo body has no effect on your shape what so ever. Also the Maitreya has a help button on the MISC tab on the HUD. That help button takes you to the online manual. You can also join the inworld group : Maitreya Lara Friends.... tons of help to be found there
  9. Since I have updated my viewer to the most recent version (I use FS), I no longer have a problem with testing temp textures in BOM mode. I no longer need to go the route of testing on an applier layer first So, this is my way of saying.... update your viewer , if you have not already.
  10. ON the Skin tab of the Maitreya 5.3 HUD is the Bakes on Mesh button. Push it ...when the text is white, the body is in BOM mode...remove any full body system alpha layers. Done. At any point you try to use a skin applier it will turn BOM mode OFF.

  12. I personally only accept bloggers that I am already a fan of. After that, I have no rules for them. I want them to only blog what inspires them. I don't want it force it and I don't want to approve their shots. I accepted them to begin with, so I trust them. SL bloggers are very important to designers, and they are just as hard working and creative. I am willing to let them do it their way, so I can be freed up and not worry about it
  13. It has nothing to do with that script. It has everything to do with the re-rigging of the feet. @size 25, the feet will be just the same size as they always were. Only newer shoes that have been rigged to the new feet will actually change size along with the feet sliders. Ahhh, just as Skell has posted, the included NC
  14. Your head is red, that means you are in BOM mode and have an alpha layer on....so you need to remove it, you do not need it. BOM is a code that allows the system layers that your system AV is wearing , to be reflected on any worn mesh that is in BOM mode. System alpha layers make the system AV invisible, so they will do the same to your BOM mode mesh. Mesh that has not been optimized for BOM, turn red instead of invisible. Just like before mesh bodies, you wore a system skin and did not need to use any sort of alpha layer to hide anything.....it is the same now when wearing m
  15. BOM mode does not require alpha layers to hide the system body. That head alpha will only be needed if you wanted to use APPLIER skins.
