– Rikugou mods top 10 –

rikus

So i have seen lots of different custom Rikugou avatars over the year, some inspired me and made me go all “why haven’t i thought of that myself D:” and some made me kinda regret i made Rikugou modable xD. Although i have seen some way more booring and sometimes even just god awful mods, than mods that are actually really good, it still makes me happy that that i gave that ability to Rikugou, i think its its major selling point too. Every time i saw something cool, i took a snapshot of it, and a lot of those snapshots have piled up in my Rikugou folder and i was organizing them and i thought, why not make a top 10 of these mods that i like best. But a simple top 10 wouldn’t cut it because some where just quick changes to the prim color and others had way more effort put into them than that, it wouldn’t be fair to compare them on the same criteria, so i split it up into 2 separate top 10s.

Well anyway, without any further to do, here’s the top 10 color combination and a top 10 original mods.

– Top 10 color combinations –

Simple mixing and matching of standard Rikugou parts and changing their colors to make interesting and sometimes really badass combinations.

1. Hiyori mode

She gets the first place cuz not only does she have a nice ice cream and black color combination going on, she’s also one of the not so many people who put a little bit more time and effort and edits her textures in photochop instead of just setting the prim colors. This makes her colors look more live and vibrant since the white highlights are preserved that way.

hiyori

You can check out a few other texture mods by her on her marketplace page

2. Haruka Mistwood (Misaka)

She has that really overall elegant look and bad ass black and blue color combination.

misaka

Report to the ship as soon as possible, we’ll bang, okay?

3. epacsteN

She has a few good combinations, im adding 2 of them here, the reason is that it is easy to just take red or blue or just pure black, pure white or any other color that everyone and their mom usually picks, but not everyone dares to take on some of the non traditional colors or color combinations. epacsten Does a good job at that.

netscape1

netscape2

4.Kaori Yatsenko

I really dig the white, lime green, copper, Anubis armor and blond hair combination

kaori

5.

This chick from Australia whos name i forgot is another one of those people that does a good job at picking and contrasting some of the less traditional colors .

australia

6.

Another person who’s name i don’t know, i like the shiny black with a little bit of white and blue + Anubis top thing going on.

bwb

7. Ruby

Has this nice black and shiny red thing going on.

ruby

8.

I like the mono color + cyan text combination, i also like that its not pitch black, its more like really dark grey, that way it still looks black but you can see all the details. A lot of people do the mistake of making things too black, the details disappear in the blackness and it just looks really cheap.

bc

9. Sumi

She has a nice shiny glowing black and gold thing going on.

sumi

10.

Another black and red mod, i just have a thing for black and red i guess.

black red

– Top 10 original modifications –

These involve a bit more effort than just changing the colors through the build menu, these are modifications that are a result of mixing, matching and linking different kinds of non Rikugou objects, custom textures and outside SL texture edits.

1.

This cyber lizard demon chick who’s name i don’t remember. I really like her mod cuz it involves some extensive texture editing, a smart use of the shiny effect on the skin in combination with a specially made skin texture, the animated prim chain tail and some other minor but nice details.

lizard

The screenshots do not do the justice since you need to see the dynamic shine effect on her skin.

2. Hiyori mode

And again for taking the time and editing her textures in photochop.

hiyori2

3.

Sorry dude forgot your name, but you have a really nice color + booster and head combination going there, your char looks really unique.

halo

4.

This chick that i only managed to catch a short glimpse of before she teleported away. I think she was going for  Inia Sestina look from muv-luv and did a really good job on it.

muvluv

Thank you for the boner.

5. Fauqs

I like the idea of covering the skin, the mass effect arm computer goes well with the theme and that shotgun on her leg is a nice touch too.

fauqs

Her avi gave me a few ides for my own customization

6. Sex Doll

Im not really sure if this belongs in a Rikugou top 10, but than again the person in the third place didn’t use the head either. Anyway the reason i like this one is because of the nice idea for a custom plug suit texture, if worked on this more, it can turn out to be something really cool.

sd

7.

Rikugou ninja chick, i like the hair, goes well with the sword and all, overall looks badass.

ninja

8.  Samus Aran mods

Now these are mods by multiple people, don’t know any of their names but they are all Samus Aren so im gonna put them all together in here.

metroid

Heres an idea for you Riku Samuses, make a zero suit out of the core but keep the arm and leg armor.

9. Bunny tits

That’s not really her name but i always get too distracted by her prim tits to look at her name tag, i couldn’t find a snapshot with her prim tits version of this mod tho :C But anyway, this is the first Rikugou furry mod i have ever seen and it works pretty well.

bt

10.

This Hatsune Miku mod was probably one of the first ones that i saw that would fit this category of people going beyond just changing colors. I couldn’t find a better picture of it tho :C

hm

Well that,s that, maybe i should do this some time again when im gonna release a new upgrade for Rikugou and do it seriously next time. I should announce a date on witch people who wanna participate can come to show off their mods and the winners would get the new upgrade first a few days before its release, and maybe some other prizes for second and third places.

– PlayStation Vita and Black Ops Declasified bundle – Review

Okay so some time ago i came home all piss drunk and high and went online to order some new earphones for my PSP cuz the old ones wire finally started breaking. While i was at it, i saw the black ops vita bundle and i thought gonna get that too just for shits and giggles. Few days later it arrived and it was time to unbox and check it out, i was gonna write this review on that day but i was a bit busy with other things.

2013-01-11-161355

Anyway so here’s my review of the PS Vita + the game it came with and right of the bat, im gonna say that the device is a piece of shit, and here’s why:

(Scroll down for a TL;DR summary of this review)

I didn’t do any research and didn’t really give a crap about the vita in general prior to ordering it. I Didn’t really know what to expect but i sorta had hopes that this might be as awsome as the psp was only with touch screen and ps3 like graphics.  The design of the box looked rather meh when pulled out of the nice looking black ops edition box (lol a box within a box) and its contents where rather disappointing too. My old psp, in adittion to the charger and the 32mb memory card, also came with all kinds of bonus goodie, like earphones and wrist strap and a special soft case and a disckwith music videos, movie trailers and game demos on it. While the vita didn’t include any of those things, it was just the console and its charger and a 4gb memory card, it didn’t even include the actual game it was supposed to be bundled with, instead it had a digital download version redeem code, not an actual physical copy of the game(and oh boy turns out it wasn’t even supposed to have the 4gb memory card, imma get to that later). The design of the device itself looks kinda meh too, compared the psp, its also really thick and bulky. To my surprise it didn’t have an UMD drive but later i found out it uses game cartridges instead, like nintendo, witch is a pretty smart decision. Another disappointment is that it doesn’t have any kind of other card slots, it doesn’t take no micro SD cards or anything like that like the PSP had, there’s no way to watch your photos or videos from your phone on it, only the proprietary sony vita cards work with it. And speaking about the vita memory cards, as i learned from my frustrated friend who also got the vita a week later, the ps vita doesn’t come with one. Now that wouldn’t be a that big of a problem since we are already used to sony being a bunch of cheep fucks and not including memory cards with the ps1 or the ps2, but unlike vita, on those systems you could still play games perfectly fine without a memory card, you just couldn’t save your progress. The vita however is as useful to you as a brick without one, not only can’t you play games without a card, it wont even do any basic functionality of a tablet device, you cannot test the camera or launch any other applications. And again, it wouldn’t be that big of a deal if sony didn’t price their shitty proprietary cards so ridiculously. The smallest 4gb cart costs 20$, 20$ isn’t that much but you can’t really do shit with a 4gb card, you can only fit 1 full game and 1 demo on it and theres not mutch room left for other apps or music. So if you’re planing on buying games digitally (witch you’re forced to do if you wanna play psp/ps1 games since the thing doesn’t have an UMD) you need to spend a bit more than 20$, its kinda obnoxious when living in times where any other 4gb memory card costs like 5 bucks. The 32gb memory card cost 100$ while the console itself is just 250$, what kind of super advanced alien technology did they put in that card to make it more worthy than the fucking system itself? Sony did some misleading advertisement when they presented the relatively low price of the system as its selling point, sure its 250$ but you gotta pay at least an extra 50$ if you wanna make the full use of the system or at least 20$ extra to do the very basic thing it was made to do, play some fucking video games on it!. In a time where the market is dominated by way more cheaper and more flexible hand held tablet an smartphone devices that already come with internal memory and most of the times a basic external memory cards and can offer way better and more affordable services and forms of entertainment, its not a very wise decision to make your device not have the basic functionally it was supposed to have out of the box. Sony just downright fucked their costumers over like that.

So anyway, I turned the system on, i was greeted by this long dumb unskipable demo, the configuration screen was nice, it had nice music too, but once i got past it, the whole interface looked so terrible as if it was designed by some amateur, it also had unnecessary cheesy menu music playing on a loop, thank god there’s an option to turn it off because it gets on your nerves after a bit. Now here’s where all the horrors begin, i started trying out the thing, the interface touch screen navigation is pretty smooth and well done but touch is the only way you can use it, none of the buttons on the console do anything.  I launched the web browser wanted to try watching youtube, but i couldn’t, it kept giving me some missing application error. I went to google and found out that the vita doesn’t support flash, okay but you don’t need flash to see youtube now days cuz it also runs on HTML5 that any modern web browser supports just fine without the need of any complicated plugin installation. In addition, i was seeing a crappy mobile version of the youtube page, this was a huge disappointment since the PSP could play youtube just fine and was capable of displaying the proper version of the page. Luckily there’s a crappy youtube app with bare minimum basic functionality, there’s also apps for facebook and twitter and skype, but they all fail hard because just like the youtube app, they lack some of the basic functionality, like a fucking text chat in skype, you can only do calls and video calls, but you cant send text messages or receive them. Speaking of basic functionality, the system also has a screenshot feature, but you can’t take screenshots with it, every time i tried to take a screenshot of the scoreboard or some random funny glitch in cod, it always says it cant take a screenshot of this screen, not even the menu screens, why does it even have a screenshot option than? to troll you? Than i went to check the camera and it was rather disappointing too, the picture quality was really surprisingly terrible even with the best lighting conditions, at this modern day and age oh 8 megapixel phone cameras. The camera’s resolution is what you see in the picture above, the camera software doesn’t have any kind of options, just a big snapshot button, the video quality is even worse, and it can’t even record a video of the same aspect ratio as the fucking screen its being displayed on, its like a really bad webcam with tiny resolution, lots of digital noise and washed out colors. My old Sony Ericson phone that i had 5 years ago, could take way better pictures than this piece of crap, why does the vita even need to have a camera at this point? I tried listening to some music but i couldn’t control my volume, it was set to 60% or 70% and some icon flashing. The manual revealed that its some “feature”, fortunately you can sorta disable it, unfortunately you cant disable it for good and you need to do that every time you turn the device on and its a really unnecessary and frustrating routine. Oh and the official vita earphones (that i had to buy separately) don’t have the remote controller thing like psp did, making you pull your console out of your pocket every time you wanna change a song. And BTW, getting media on or off the device is kind of a pain in the ass too, in addition for it not having a card reader, you cant just connect it to your computer through the USB port and access the device like you could with the PSP, sony has some weird “keep your hands off! we will do it for you” thing going on with vita, you gotta install some additional program that just like everything else by sony, has no fucking options and you gotta manually remove it from the system startup list. Its called content manager assistant something, you specify the locations on your computer your music, pictures, videos and app backups, than you can access those locations through your vita and copy music and other crap to your vita’s memory card. The cool thing is that you can just specify your whole hard drive as a location and browse through folders using vita, but its still a really ass backwards way of doing things, it would be so much more easy if you could just drag and drop files from your computer like you could with the psp. There are countless other tiny problems i ran into that i wont mention here because this review already got way too long.

Oh the remote play function that is supposed to let you play your ps3 games remotely, is rather useless just like the screen shot option, cuz you can’t actually play anything through it (just a handful of ps3 titles support it)

So anyway, it was time to try the game it came with! Entering the code to redeem my game aaaaaand……….. bullshit. I cant redeem my game :C it keeps giving me an error that i either entered the code wrong or it has expired D:. So i ran to google to see what could be wrong, turns out, digital downloads are region locked, i have to create an account with the same region that my game is from. But the problem doesn’t end there, unlike the PS3, once you have created or logged in to your PSN account with the vita, your vita gets account locked, you cannot create a new or log in with any other PSN account, you’re pretty much fucked if you have more than one account. However, google reveals that there IS a way to log in with another account, but that requires a factory restore. You have to reset your system to the factory defaults, you loose all your changes and everything and you have to sit through that annoying demo again after you turn it on, luckily the date and time doesn’t reset so you don’t have to set them up again. So i was finally able to create and log in with a new account and download my game and its time to try it out!

Call Of Duty – Black Ops: Declassified

If your not into call of duty multiplayer and your all about the epic call of duty single player experience, you might wanna rent or try this game out somewhere before you buy it, since this game is all about the multiplayer and the single player part doesn’t offer a whole lot. The campaign itself is really short and it feels more like you’re playing spec ops in mw2/mw3, the cutscenes between the missions are kinda booring and done in the same style as BF3 single player, theres not that many epic ingame cutscenes either as expected for a COD game, there’s also the mw3 survival mode and a time trial mode, there’s also leveling and time ranking in the campaign so it adds a little bit of replay value. Also the campaign is really fucking hard too D: i hate the time missions where you need to do shit in a short time. The controls are pretty good, the game makes a smart use of the touch screen by adding the missing controller buttons on the screen next to the physical buttons. In addition it it also offers more than one way to do something, for example, to throw a grenade you can just tap the grenade button on screen, of you can tap and hold the grenade button, an orange circle appears, you drag it out and aim your throw with it, you can also knife people by slashing the screen with your finger, its actually a lot easier to quickly slash the screen instead of looking for the virtual knife button (since you cant feel it with your finger). The killstreeks and alt weapon fire can be activated the traditional way with your D pad but you also have the on screen buttons for them on the left side of the screen too, they are kinda hard to hit since they are so small so i just use the D pad. Now the only down side to the controls is that the vita analog sticks are really loose and gives no resistance to your finger, even simple basic tasks such as walking can be really difficult, i always start strafing to the sides when trying to walk forward and get stuck trying to go through a door, thank god you can lower the sensitivity so aiming is decent, but than you have a really slow turn problem and cant react to stuff behind your back fast enough, this can get you killed in multiplayer. One thing that really rustles my jimmies is that activision went all trololo and wont let you use touch screen in the game menus. Every other thing in the game and any other game and app uses the touch screen, but no not this game menu, if lets say you wanna change your class, you can’t just tap your screen and change class, you gotta navigate the slow and awkward oldschool way, with the d pad, and i keep forgetting that every time and try to tap the screen and nothing happens D:

Anyway, the multiplayer is really where its all at, and i gotta say i was surprised by how well balanced and fun it is :O This game offers a simple clean COD experience, It feels as if the game was done by the COD community itself, it takes everything that awesome about cod and leaves out all the bullshit. Theres no cheap noob shit, no aim asist, no bullshit deaths, no death streeks, no last stand/second chance, no OP perks like assassin or ghost pro, no revenge spawns. The game doesn’t cheat you out of your kills, knife is not faster than bullets and even if you do get knifed, if you where shooting the guy coming at you, he dies too and you get an afterlife+ revenge bonus too :D, the killstreeks are balanced out pretty well, there’s no retarded press button-recieve kills flying exploding easy to get bullshit like like in BO2, most streaks are non lethal type, like UAV and stuff. All weapon classes are balanced, there’s no SMG noob bullshit like in BO2, you can pick up any weapon you want and still be competitive, SMGs are only good in close range like they should(cant hipfire sniper across the map) and LMGs are deadly as fuck while the ARs are the all purpose weapons again. It has some really great maps, like shipment from COD4 and nuketown from BO1. It mostly features weapons, attachments and equipment from BO1 but it also has some stuff from MW3 like the PP90M1 FUCK YEAH! and bouncing betties :D. Secondary weapons aren’t all that useless either, you have your proper machine pistols and stuff. Theres no retarded weapon attachments or changeless like lets say an acog on the shotgun, do 200 scoped shotgun acog kills!, appropriate weapon classes have appropriate attachments. The chalanges are organized in IW style, everything is in one place and easy to follow, unlike BO1 and BO2 where fuck knows where what is.

However this game does have some shortcomings, like really shitty graphics, and some are really serious too, like the connectivity problems or random crashes with an error reporting dialog. Now the connectivity issue is strange, you sometimes start randomly loosing connection to the host in 2 out of every 3 matches and in some cases you loose connection so hard that the vita itself needs to reconnect itself to the psn, and all the reviews and message boards of the game report the same problem. Strangely enough, sometimes you can play a whole day without getting disconnected a single time. Other shortcomings aren’t game breaking but would be things nice to have, like a way to communicate with other players, the game doesn’t have text or voice chat. The loadings times are ass, you would think that not having an UMD anymore and loading maps directly from the card would be faster. The loading times are random too, some times the same map can load for like few seconds and sometimes a whole minute, There’s also a severe lack of game modes, there’s only TDM KC FFA and for some weird reason they chose to add drop zone out of all the modes, why not fucking SnD? I also wish it had more maps and it doesnt look like they are planing on making a DLC. Oh and theres no killcams :C

So to sum this up (the tl;dr summary)

Amateurish packing, unit and UI design, Doesn’t come with any of the bonus goodies that the psp came with, UI cannot be controlled with buttons, touch screen only.
The pack doesn’t even come with a memory card, rendering the device a useless brick that costs 250$, since it doesnt let you launch games or do anything else without a memoru card cuz the system doesnt have any internal memory. You need to spend more money on sony’s overpriced proprietary memory card just to have the basic functionality of your system that should have been there out of the box, and no other card formats work, witch in this day and age is just FAIL.
Game bundles come with region locked redeem codes instead of physical copies of games, not letting you download your game if your PSN account region doesnt match the redeem code region. An account lock not letting you log in with any other PSN account once you loged in, having to do a factory reset every time you wanna create or log in with different account.
Really poor selection of apps and Apps lacking basic funtionality and features that don’t actualy do what they are supposed to do, like not being able to take a screenshot of a game using the screenshot function or play a game remotely using the remote play funtion or not having text chat in skype or not being able to displaying web pages propertly in the web browser, no flash support, broken HTML5 support. And “features” that hinder your ability use the system, like the volume automatic control and lock.
No card readers and no other way to get files on and of the system, can’t just connect ti to the pc through usb, gotta install adittional software to be able to transfer files, due to sony’s “hands off! we will do this for you” policy and than doing this ass backwards file copying through your vita.
Surprisingly terrible camera resolution and image quality even under the best lighting conditions, even worse video resolution and quality like some old cheep webcam with digital noise and washed out colors, no camera options, cant even film in the same aspect ratio as the screen the video is displayed on.
Unimpressive and sometimes even just down right terrible graphics, loose and sensitive analog sticks, obligatory touch in some games, severe lack of big game titles or more like lack of games in general, high game prices going from 20$ to 50$ compaired to lets say 2$-5$ games for the IOS and Android with far better graphics.

If you do not need this for a particular game and nothing else like i do and got no money to spare, youre better off buying a 3DS or even a fucking ipad.

Next project: the M3 mesh anime head.

– On disc DLC – BIG FUCKING DEAL –

 

I hear a lot of people moaning and complaining about on disc unlockable content in videogames these days. People go all herp derp “capcom is stupid, putting content on disc, you pay full price, and to unlock them you need to pay for content thats already on the disk!” people feel entitled for every bit of data on that disc since they payed money for it. My answer is usually “but you have to understand why exactly this is done, the reason DLC is on the disc is….” and before i can continue explaining, im being interrupted by another herp derp ” SCAM!”

The reason that this extra content is on the disc is due to technical limitations, it is done so that you would be able to play against people who have the DLC and be able to see their characters on your screen properly,  the game needs to load this data on your screen, it wont just somehow magically load his character model on your screen out of think air, videogame consoles don’t run on magic. The game has to have that data somewhere, putting it on the game disc solves a lot of problems that i will get into now.

If the content wasn’t on the disc, it would segment the player base, meaning people who bought a particular character would only be able to play against people who have bought that same character and have the required game data, people who didn’t buy anything wont be able to play with people that bought something, and so on. Its kinda like the situation with the call of duty DLC, people who bought map pack 1 cant play against people who have map pack 2 or 3 or people who don’t have any map packs, with every DLC release for COD, it gets harder and harder to find a match. Other games “solve” whits problem by making you sit through a hour long game patching screen before you can play your game. Older games like quake or half life or cod4 made you sit through a hour long download screen every time you joined a none core game content server, downloading every map, texture, model and sound and it was a real killjoy, you lost the mood to play the game by the time it finished downloading all this additional content.

So, if the content wasn’t on the disc, this would make you sit through a long killjoy hour long download screen every time you wanna play a game and clog up your entire hard drive space with random game data, the data wont be on the game disc but it will instead be on your hard drive and you will still be locked out from it, so what would that accomplish? do you people ever think?. Companies like namco and capcom  didn’t want to inconvenience you ignorant fucks with such bullshit and put the data straight on the disc, so that you could have an interrupted gameplay experience. If you don’t want to pay money for additional game characters, than fucking dont! no one is forcing you so whats the problem? And no you didn’t pay money for that extra data even if its on your disc, you don’t pay 60 bucks for zeros and ones, you do not pay 60 bucks for the 25ct piece of plastic that the zeros and ones are on, you pay for the experience that the company is selling you, just like you pay for experience when you go to a movie theater, you don’t pay money to own a physical copy of the movie, you pay money to see the movie. It just so happens that the company decided to take extra for that extra bit of experience the DLC will provide you in addition to the core experience that you payed for, they had to work extra on it and the game already costs a lot so they wont force you to pay that extra, thats why its locked.

So long story short, only people who dont understand the technical aspect of how games work go all “herp derp scam” and making a big deal out of the extra bit of unlockable data being symbolically called a DLC, you didnt pay money for that extra data when you bought the game, you payed money for the core game experiance, not a round piece of plastic or zeros and ones engraved on it, if you want extra experiance, pay that extra.

Anyway, thanks to all the whiny bitches, the rest of us have to sit through hours of updating before we can play a game.

– What’s coming in 2013 –

2013 – So the world didn’t end

I don’t think that the Mayan calendar ending at 2012 ment the world will end at that date, i think it just means that 2012 was the last date the Mayans wrote down before they went extinct and there was no one to continue writing the calendar anymore :D

But anyway, wow time goes so fast, i haven’t even done half of what i planned for 2012, but lets hope i can finish it all this year :D so here’s what you should expect to come from me in 2013.

But first, a status update on the M3 head. The reason it didn’t come out for so long was cuz the project was halt due to technical complications. The head rendered really weird and shaded so terrible when uploaded to SL. I needed to redo the whole lower part of the face and all the face expressions i have already made, and holidays where already near , so i just said fuck it and took a break till next year. So im finally resuming the work on the head, i have already remade the face and now testing it ingame, it shades a lot better now, i just need to shrink the size of the upper/back part of the head (hair compatibility issues) and i will be ready to make face expressions again.

Just to tease you, here’s some of the features it will have: Separate control for eyes, mouth and eyebrows lets you create your own face expression, effects like blush and tears, easier than ever customization and development kit, select any eye color you want,  multicolor eyes, talk animation, different kinds of ears and lots of other stuff.

Okay so here’s what else is coming apart from the new head.

A naked body for Rikugou was something requested by a lot of you, but i had no intentions of doing it at first because A. you can use Rikugou’s head on Avatar 2.0 B. i had my hands full with the avatar 2.0 already, if i was to create a naked version of the body, i would have been flooded with complaints that none of the clothing fits it and i don’t really have the time and energy to launch another line of clothes. BUT your naked Rikugou body idea got me thinking, i imagined how it would look, how would all the attachment points look for the armor and all the other technical detail, and the more i thought about it, the more i wanted to do it. So, you win, you can see a small preview of how its going to be like at the top. Other things to come will be more alternative hair styles, the Temjin armor set that was supposed to come after Anubis and a few pieces of clothing for the naked body, and i wanna make some more armor sets.

– Avatar 2.0 –

Okay so obviously the single Avatar 2.0 model just cannot satisfy everyone’s needs so im going to split it into a few separate versions, there will be a headless version specially made to be used with the default linden avatar head(also the eye pop thing fixed), there will also going to be a version with alternative material areas, all of you who wanted to use sculpted feet and high heels will finally be able to do it without third party support. I will also going to revert a small change i did with the collar bones and try to find another way to narrow the shoulders. Finally, the thing i said about putting clothing on hold till mesh deformers are out, well i will only be partially putting it on hold, i will still be doing stuff but im going to do them in packs, because that way i can update you when i the mesh deformer is implemented. I will not make things that come in 8543213687498 color versions because that’s just too much to handle when creating update cards and update server entries for every item.  Finally i wanna make a seamless bigger boobs addon for avatar 2.0  and a few tops to go along with it.

– Other projects –

Okay im not yet sure about this one but, i MIGHT release the M3 head bundled with a mesh body. When i was making the naked Rikugou body, i also made a human version of it and it turned out pretty nice. Now im not sure if i wanna get myself into making another clothing line or not but the fact is that Avatar 2.0 doesn’t satisfy me as much anymore and Rikugou’s body looks just so much better, and on top of that i already have a body done (just need to texture and rig it) So i guess i could like do this joint project thing, making clothing for Avatar 2.0 i would also make a version that is compatible with the Rikugou android and human bodies just like i do with the .: U & A :. body, that would give me an extra bit of work but it wouldn’t be as much as a separate line.

When im done with everything, i wanna release my own mesh furry avatar that would rival the Blue Galaxy feline and that other bunny mesh avatar with incredibly hot ass.
