– Come join the Rikugou Armada! –

honkaicover

If you are playing Honkai Impact 3rd on the EU(GMT+1) server, come join our RikugouPMC armada (name is case sensitive)

If you arent already playing or never heard about it, Honkai impact is an amazing anime action game that plays something like Devil may cry, Beyoneta, Nier Automata, transformers devastation, with RPG game mechanics.

Honkai impact is a free to play mobile game BUT DONT STOP READING HERE! because you can also play it with a game controller on a PC (that’s how we are playing it) and pretty much everything except a few special outfits can be unlocked through just playing the game and doing the events.

Heres my crappy gameplay video showing off 2 of the characters in the game and their combat dynamics

So how do you play it? if you wanna play it on the PC, theres many options for android emulators including their own officially supported emulator that they offer on their website, but i strongly recommend using the MuMu emulator for the best possible game performance and best looking graphics and controls and all that shit (their own emulator ruins at 30fps and likes crashing and you cant adjust the analog stick sensitivity and has a weird sound delay)

Get MuMu here https://mumu.163.com/global/download/en/index.html
You will need to log into your google account to be able to browse the app store.
Be sure to look for Honkai Impact 3rd, not Honkai Impact 3 because that ones for the asian region and wont even let you download

once you got the game running, setup your game controller like this
controls
Enter the gamepad config mode and click on screen where you want to place a gamepad button, the top bar also has analog sticks and other input methods that you can drag and drop onto the screen, make sure to position everything over the onscreen buttons

overlap.jpg

heres my setup (Im using a playstation 2 controller)
0 = Triangle (first character or team skill)
2 = X (second character)
3 = Square (stage specific action)
4 = L2 (evade)
5 = R2 (attack)
6 = L1 (special attack)
7 = R1 (ultimate ability/attack)
8 = Select (pause menu/back)
9 = Start (home screen)

my controller is old and doesnt have pressure sensitivity so it works fine, but i heard the shoulder buttons on the ps3/4 and xbox controllers dont work too well because of the pressure sensitivity feature requiring you to push them hard to register, so my control layout might not work too well with those controllers and you should use square, triangle, circle and x for the attacks instead and shoulder buttons for switching characters.

If you wanna play it on a phone or a tablet, you can get the game here https://honkaiimpact3.mihoyo.com/global/en-us

So yeah, this is a very fun game and i think you should give it a try if you like these kind of games.

Imma leave you with some gameplay and cutscene CGI videos






 

 

 

– AMH 2.0 is open! –

amhcat

Alright, everything is ready and we are now open so come on down to AMH 2.0 at http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Meteor%20Star/51/186/1548

The old AMH will remain open for a while to direct people to the new place till all the tenants rents run out on all the stores.

– Battle Angel Alita is actually really good –

f78564e899c6ed2c58dc81d2714f442e

So i just watched the new Battle Angel Alita live action movie and damn was it good. Like, after watching the very first trailers that came out and seeing those really creepy big eyes, i was ready to hate the movie, but as hard as i tried, the movie won me over really fast.

It has really a good cast, all the characters play their part perfectly, and even the alien eyed main character was very likable and kept the movie moving forward. The visuals looked really pretty and all the CGI felt so natural when mixed in with all the real life stuff, it also had some of the most amazing action i have seen in a while, just too bad it was so brief and there was so little of it, maybe thats what made it so good? i dont know but i wanted more.

But anyway, It genuinely feels like a movie that came from the heart of people that really get it and care for the source material, not some cynical board of directors in business suit and ties, formulating it based on the normie focus group results. Its what the GITS live action movie should have been like, with its cynical pandering to normies who dont watch movies like that anyway. It does not take any unnecessary bullshit “creative liberties” and faithfully follows its source material, it brought back so many memories of the anime, now i wanna rewatch it and maybe even read the manga to see what happens next because i dont think it made enough money to warrant a sequel sadly :C

I think this movie would have made a lot more money if it wasnt for the downright bizarre choice to make her eyes so fucking huge and shapeless and wrinkly around them, why not just give her a pretty JRPG style face or better yet, why not just make her normal like EVERYONE ELSE around her so she wouldnt stand out like taken out of a different movie and slapped on top, and would blend in with the rest, and they would have saved a shit ton of money in the CGI department too !

Anyways, go see it, its a quality movie and you wont be bored.

– M4 Venus Head –

You wanted it, you got it ! The M4 Bento Venus head is here!

venusmp1

– What is Different from the other M4 heads ? –

Unfortunately, there are no alternative nose or eye socket shapes, but as a tradeoff the head is backwards compatible with M3 Venus appliers and retains the M3 tear effect!
you now have full compatibility with old M3 Venus appliers (skins, eyes, brows, lashes, blush, tears) as well as M4 Venus appliers, however because of this specific compatibility, other M4 and M3 head skins that were not made specifically for the venus head, will not work with the M4 Venus. One thing to note is that mouth uses M4 mouth textures instead of the mouth included on the M3 Venus skins.

As mentioned before, this particular head has the tears option, you can access it through the blush button by clicking it repeatedly till it switches from blush mode to tears mode. Due to a technical limitation regarding alphas, switching on tears, sets the eyelash texture to alpha masking in order to not clash with the tear alpha, this degrades the quality of some eyelash textures. One interesting thing we noticed very late into development is that for whatever reason that same alpha clash bug is not happening between the blush layer and tears, we will look into why this is happening (or more like, why its not happening) and hopefully we can implement tears in other M4 heads. A separate HUD button for tears will be implemented with future updates but for now if you wanna have both and you know what youre doing, first turn on tears and than unhide the blush using SL’s build menu.

The default eye size setting is now size 2, if you make the eyes bigger in the appearance editor, use eye size setting 1 in the M4 HUD to match it.
The Rikugou necks will apply Rikugou skin tones to the rest of the head if you select a skin from the HUD, light skins will apply Rikugou A tone, dark skins Rikugou B
the LL/normie neck will apply its own tone to the head as well for the medium skin tone, matching the medium LL skin tone from the appliers included in the bonus item box.

– M4 Mars head and M4 updates –

And its here! the long awaited Mars male anime head. This is something i wanted to make for quite some time since i never could make the exact anime guy avatar i wanted.

– Things to know –

Snce i was working on this alongside the M4 Anime head, it has the same problem of a small cranium and large face (my original thinking was that making the cranium smaller will prevent hairs clipping through it, only i scaled the head wrong and instead of matching the face area with the LL face, i matched the cranium, and the rest you already know), but hopefully this time it wont be much of a problem since the majority of male hairs are unrigged and resizable, so if you arent completely blind, you will adjust the scale of the hair to match the face and wont look weird….. (im scared that normies that will be buying this head have no idea how to scale and position hairs though) But if that does cause problems, i might do a shape 2 as well with a smaller face.

Another thing, in case this isnt already obvious, the M4 girl skins will not work with this head due to different face structure and UVs

Anyway, here it is!

– M4 Updates –

M4 Anime and M4 Chibi HUDs now have a Simplified way custom textures are loaded, now all you have to do is click add and select what you are adding from a pop up menu and than paste your UUID without the need to write any additional parameters.

 

Thats all.

– Wip M4 Mars and some other stuff –

– M4 Mars –

Finally got something decent to show, all the modeling, rigging, and all that stuff is finished, textures are pretty much done too, just need to improve the lips and around the eyes a bit, now what remains is the part i hate doing the most, making animations for it, after that the HUD graphics

– Other Projects –

Pokemon trainer hair, this is something that i started working on spontaneously when i was high one night, couldnt find the exact hair/hat combination i needed for an outfit, i dont even remember what it was supposed to be, but either way this is sorta almost done lol.

Another side quest i had was this armor, this is a little something i wanted to do for a very long time, just couldn’t find an excuse good enough to start it.

– M4 updates and new stuff –

Updates for both heads:

Version 1.3b
– M4 Head –
Applying a skin texture now forces it to ALPHA_MASK_NONE for people that just cant seem to figure out how to save textures properly, ending up with transparent circles around their eyes.
Skin textures now apply correctly to eye whites layer
Fixed the eyebrow texture automatically changing itself to alpha masking, making the brows look all jagged.

– M4 HUD –
Improve performance for Click & Drag so dragging too fast doesn’t break HUD position
Made sure Click & Drag state syncs up better on new owner and responds to click and drag when wearing it for the very first time.

– Mesh dummy –
This was a thing for some time now but i forgot to announce it, I have added shape 2 to the M4 Anime mesh dummy.

– The M4 remote Relay –

We made a remote control relay for the head, this will allow other people to control your face remotely, this is useful for situations like AFK pose balling or making machinima, you can find this new toy in the bonus item box, be sure to read the instructions on how to use it.

That is all.

– Updates, ABC dummies and a new shape for the M4 Anime head –

First, lets get these updates out of the way, more things have been fixed on both heads, these would be:

*Fixed – An oversight with listeners in both HUDs not canceling when the ignore button is pressed on the UUID box, grabbing and applying later pasted UUIDs to the wrong parts of the head.
*Fixed – Bug with the script in the LL necks on both heads causing skins to apply wrong.
*Added – A secondary head shape, more about this one further down this post.
*Change – Version numbers have been changed for everything to 1.3 to avoid confusion.

– New things from ABC –

New type of pierced puffy addon nipples for the ABC bouncy boobs, these come as a free update to the ABC bouncy boobs.

ABC is tired of having to manually give people links to her dummies but too lazy to make a blog or a website of her own so she asked me to post these on mine, so here they are.

– New shape for the M4 Anime head –

So it seems that despite my best efforts to explain to people that since a rigged mesh head cannot be resized and moved around like the the old heads, you cannot make it fit every hair in existence, and because of that the head looks really weird with half of the hair you try it with, mainly because the face looks too big compared to the hair, making it look like either the eyes are too big or something else is off , and they just need to pick the right hair(Ayashi and Taketomi works well).

The right hair makes all the difference as you can see in this compilation of people doing it right.
cumpilation

But still not being able to use half of the hair on SL without looking really goofy is kind of a bummer so i was working on an alternative shape for those situations.

resize
Left is the old shape, right is the new shape.

What i did here is mostly just scale the face portion of the head bellow the forehead, I also fixed the super pointy chin cuz it was bugging me a lot, i also moved the mouth and nose upwards a little to compensate for the smaller chin as well as rotated and moved the portion of the face bellow the nose forward a little to make it look less weird from top angles as well as remove the impression that its always smiling.

Now if this wont make make the head basic bitch proof, nothing will.
