Was just at Genesis Lab in-world store and really don't understand what I'm looking at. (still a bit of a noob with this Bento business) On one wall at their in-world store, there's a few heads - that's clear enough. Further to the right of those heads, is a wall of 'HUD skins', with absolutely nothing to say what heads they're intended for. Clear as mud. (Prices are quite clear though.) On the opposite wall to those two walls, is a bunch of gacha stuff that I'm not really interested in, unless you're meant to play L$4000 worth of gachas to get a head that will only match one of the 'HUD skins' on the aforementioned wall - ? Is that what they're for? I manged to get through the Catwa and LeLutka learning curves without too many bruises (or any, really - they were pretty easy), but Genesis Lab? I mean, for the love of last night's leftovers, why is this stuff so complicated? Or am I just exceptionally dumb? (don't answer that!)
Hi. I'm not desperate to follow the trend for mesh heads just yet, as my current look is not awful, but just out of curiosity I have been demoing all the reasonable-looking Bento heads I can find. I don't like the sourpuss mouth and slitty eyes of most of them, but Meli Imako Rooth (left) and Genesis Lena (right) come fairly close to the look I want. Rooth (2,000 L$) is really aimed at creators. It not have a HUD, and it needs improvement in looks and animations, but it is full-perm and I don't mind doing some technical work (scripting/texturing) to bring it up to standard, if that is possible. Lena (4,000 L$) is nicely done, but it has a high rendering complexity of about 35,000 and a high script count. The demo does not have a HUD, but from pictures on the website it seems there is no way to remove the scripts. It also does not accept Omega skins (but does accept Omega makeup/tattoos). There are no ears or animations with the demo either, so I have no way of knowing what they are like. It also has a problem with the bottom gums poking out through the chin at non-extreme shape settings, which I hope they would fix in an update. And it seems their support group is closed for new members; what that means I don't know. So, does anybody have opinions on these heads, or know of any others with similar looks that would be worth looking at? Thanks a lot.
