So, now that thats over with, here are the new stuff for Rikugou, Have fun with your new toys !

– Oni Combat armor chest and other stuff –

And the chest armor is done, you will need to update your Rikugous and Kemonos for this to work. You should also update your O.CA arms and legs because i have fixed a few texture loading bugs as well as fixed the specularity settings that shaded the armor all weird around local lights. It should all look good now….. i think.

I also made a scarf to go along with the armor, it can also be used separately.

 

– Updates –

Apart from the Kemono and Rikugou compatibility updates for the armor, theres also a bunch of other bug fixes that you might want to check out.
Here is the list of all the changes:

-Kemono v1.13.2:
Fixed neck and triangulation. (mainly for O.CA chest compatibility)
Fixed a rigging bug with the Kemono hands and gloves.
Fixed a LOD issue with the hips.
Fixed a LOD issue with the right furry leg.
Fixed an issue with voice chat mouth animation.
Added a missing “ADD” graphical element to the body HUD right side options menu.
Switched places basic and advanced mode buttons on the body HUD to be more intuitive.
Script optimizations.

-M3 v1.12.10:
Fixed an issue with voice chat mouth animation option breaking the head.
Fixed a problem with the reset button not working when the options menu is close don the HUD.
Included the retro loader into the main package instead of the bonus item box because GOD DAMN IT YOU PEOPLE.

-O.CA arms and legs v2:
Fixed a rigging issue on the fingers of the Kemono version.
Fixed a rigging issue on the arms of the Rikugou lite version.
Fixed an issue with the wrong “red skull” textures being loaded on the arms of Avatar 2.0 and Rikugou lite versions.
Fixed an issue with speculars, shading the whole armor weird around local lights.
Added a Resync option to the menu of the Rikugou armor parts, this is for when one of the body parts reset and clip through the armor after reloging or adding the part second instead of first.

-Rikugou Lite v1.4:
O.CA chest armor compatibility update.

 

Thats all, the next big update is the Rikugou avatar and accessory series, its a real mess so this will take some time to fix.

– The Oni Combat Armor and some updates –

The Oni Combat Armor – arms, legs and a tacticool belt.

Compatible with Avatar 2.0, Kemono and Rikugou Lite avatars. You will need to update your Kemono And Rikugou avatars for this to work, i have also included a manual fix that you can apply to your Kemono instead of Updating it to save time. This started out as something else entirely but has deviated to what it is now, after series of walls i ran into with trying to mesh out the design. Non the less, i really like how it turned out and im thinking of making a chest piece and maybe a head piece later too.

Btw, funny thing, Marketplace filtered the word Oni and set the product to mature automatically for whatever retarded linden reason, had to change Oni to Onı using unicode to bypass the the retarded filter.

 

– Updates –

Avatar 2.0
Fixed a glitch with the bonus hair base that made it clip with the new version of Avatar 2.0

M3
Fixed a bug with the visually effect of the voice chat animation checkbox being pressed (if you closed the options menu and opened it again, the checkbox got reset visually)Fixed a bug that made both the voice chat and typing animation checkboxes activate both functions regardless of what checkbox was marked.
Fixed a bug with the head applying custom eyebrow textures on one of the elf ears.

Kemono(This is not the upcoming big update)
Fixed a bug with the Kemono deformer, offsetting the lower leg bones, making the legs look all curved backwards and breaking the ankles, you need this update mainly for compatibility with the O.CA armor legs and some products that asami is going to make.

Rikugou Lite(This is not the upcoming big update)
Changes to arms and legs for compatibility with the O.CA arms and legs.

And so, i can finally release this stuff.

All is done, now i can sit back and take a break cuz the new call of duty season is starting in 3 days :3

– Rikugou Lite –

Being able to go all nekid was a little something requested by lots of people who own the Rikugou avatar, and well, now you can :D

This package does not include a head and is not compatible with clothing made for Avatar 2.0 and isn’t intended to be used in the same kind of way as Avatar 2.0. You have to own the Rikugou avatar to make full use of this package, don’t IM me about missing alphas and that sort of stuff.

Update your Rikugou avatar to the latest version since it has some fixes for bugs that caused some compatibility issues. If you are experiencing any kind of other difficulties, see the included general mesh troubleshooter before you contact me.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-

– What’s included in the package –

A naked body for Rikugou A and B (no head)
An outfit for body A and B
Bonus item box
Update card
A read me file
A general mesh problem troubleshooter
Landmark to the main store.

– Bonus items –

The bonus item box includes the C version of the core as well as the usual textures, UV maps and Bump maps for moding enthusiasts, and also a little bonus something to cover up your nakedness just a little :D.

As in all the previous releases, everything is full mod so you could give it your own unique touch to it. Instructions on how to personalize your avatar with more detailed examples are in the – Read Me – notecard.

Thats is all.

 

Next project: the M3 mesh anime head.

– Rikugou – Anubis armor –

And its done :D

Introducing the first set of armor upgrades for Rikugou, now available on the marketplace as well, click the image to go to the product marketplace page to find out more details about this set.

The in world launch couldn’t go without any problems as usual lol, problems with the sword and me including the wrong manual mostly, but fixed all that stuff in the end.
if you where one of the 64 first ones to get it yesterday, you can do the following things to fix your sword. You can rez your update card to get the latest version that includes the right manual this time and all 3 versions of the sword fixed. If you hate unpacking and stuff, you can manually fix the sword by resetting the script inside the folded sword on the back.

It also completely slipped my mind to include any kind of shoe platforms, if your legs are sinking into the ground a bit, wear the one included with Rikugou(if i included any with her) or some other thing or make your own.

Heres some stuff you can do with it.

Hope it was worth the wait.

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
