The Multi-Purpose Android – Rikugou – Combat variant.
This is the core package, that includes the full mesh android avatar, and a prototype of the future mesh anime head M3 and its control HUD.
Also, a special bonus version of the same avatar, for people who like to mod their stuff(more explanation below).
I call it the core pack since im also working on Weapons and addons for it, that will come in the future.
About the bonus version:
Both, the regular version and the bonus version, are full mod and are basically the same thing, only all bonus version’s textures are made white, so you give it your own colors.
how you do that is, by selecting areas and setting their colors in the build menu. Different areas(for example the skin area) of the body and its parts, have different materials assigned to them(faces in second life terms). In the build menu, mark the “select face” check box and select the area of the body that you want to set a color to and go to the texture tab of the build menu, click where it says color and pick your color.
In adition, i also included the UV maps and the textures, that you can load into photoshop and mod them from there.
Theres a known glich with 3.0 based viewers, when shadows are enabled, all the alpha textures disapear, LL has allready fixed it but they have not yet implemented it into the official release, however you can downlaod the latest development build that has the fix allready applied to it.
Warning, there’s a glitch with some video cards, that causes the viewer to crash, if you attempt to edit faces of a rigged mesh, that you are wearing. If that happens, plan B would be detaching it and rezing it on the ground and than editing its faces.
Have fun with your new toy :D
