Mesh Update in Tools and Technology A group blog by Secondlife in General Posted October 8, 2011 @kalliopi Clothing layers are not affected in any way. your tattoos will be fine. Mesh is just an addition, not a replacement for anything. If someone uses an alternative avatar, your clothes will probably not fit, but none will, except the ones made specifically for that avatar. I'm pretty sure most people will keep their old avatar as their main shape for that reason, or their entire wardrobe will be useless. Viewer? Well I have to say I have used Viewer 1 until recently. I'm used to V2 now, it even performs better, IF it runs, that's true:). There's a viewer 1 alternative though, as far as viewing the meshes goes, for uploads you need V2 (for now at least). The Coolviewer has mesh tech and Phoenix will follow.
