– A bunch of important updates and a new stuff –

So first things first, a bunch of much needed updates to existing products.

The M4 Anime And M4 Chibi heads now include experimental Necks for the Rikugou lite body, theres some caveats to these so be sure to see the updated manual for what those are and how to use these necks.

The M4 texture applier has been updated to support the new necks for Rikugou.

M4 Mars has a bug fixes with the right eye that made it have a small triangle artifact every time custom eye textures were used. Theres also a minor triangulation change on the blush layer above the nose.

The Necks of all the M4 Heads now automatically change alpha mode to none every time a texture is applied to prevent alpha problems with incorrectly exported custom textures.

Also, i finally fixed the mirrored label problem on the right leg of Rikugou A and B, dunno why i didnt do it sooner.

Now, there was also supposed to be a big update for the Normie head that i wanted to release in this batch of updates as well but the omega applier team is now on a vcation and i cannot finish this update without them, and with some of these updates being already long overdue combined with the new product release that i cannot delay any longer either, i decided to release all this stuff without the Normie head update and set that for a later date when its finished.

And if you are interested on what those Normie updates are, these would be a much needed extra makeup/tattoo layer, necks for Kemono and avatar 2.0, removing the ear weights that messed with bento animal ears, closed ear holes for when ears are hidden and some other fixes.

Im not sure how long their vacation will be but im hoping i can release this before christmas.

TL;DR things updated:
M4 Mars – eye fix, neck alpha mode fix.
M4 Anime and M4 chibi – Added Rikugou necks and the neck alpha fix.
M4 texture applier – Added Rikugou neck support.
Rikugou A and B – Fixed mirrored labels on Right leg.

– New hair –

And now the new product, the Workout Hairdo (cuz i suck at naming things) For the M4 Anime head (works with other heads too, try the demo!)

This comes with 12 hair textures, 10 hat textures and 29 logo designs for the hat.
Theres also bonus unrigged version of the hat itself included.

And that is it for now.

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.

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

 

– Another kemono update D: –

Okay so there was another bug in the avatar that occasionally broke peoples shoulders after teleporting to a new sim. I have no idea if this update fixes anything because on your own screen you might still look fine when it happens, so i will need to gather some people and make a study group and have them observe if this ever happens again with the updated body.

 

On the other news, the Kemono hair can now be bought separately for those who dont wanna buy the whole avatar just to get the hair.
