– Some minor updates –

There has been an update to the M4 Venus head that fixes a problem with the LL neck not accepting neck textures if the necks and appliers were worn in a specific order.

There has also been an update to the site to remove all the adds, some users may experience an error trying to view it so tell them to clear their browser cache.

– Updates –

Normie head Version 7.0

Added a tattoo layer.
Added necks for Kemono and Avatar 2.0 bodies, neck options can be found in options menu.
Removed ear bone vertex groups so your head will now will work right with bento animal ears.
The makeup button on the now brings up a makeup menu, due to some scripting fuckery, the buttons are not very responsive so they may need to be pressed a few times to work.

Unfortunately this update has taken me longer than it should have and has been further delayed by holidays and i really wanted to do this before christmas or at least before the year ends, so i had to push it out, theres some problems with seams under the chin on the LL and kemono necks where they connect to the head, and a seam above forehead, i have no idea how i didnt pick that up when i was testing it so i will keep the older version in the package as well in case the seam under the chin bothers anyone, until i fix it in the next update.

Update to the Kemono head

Kemono head had a bug where the white part of the eye would not accept any textures, that is fixed now.

– 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.

– 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.

– Update servers are back online –

I take that back about casper’s ticket support being shitty, they responded really fast and everything seems to be working now, if you are still having problems with your V2 update cards, contact me with the name of the account and the product you have problems updating,

For those of you that dont have V2 update cards, see this link https://utilizator404.wordpress.com/2018/05/04/new-update-migration-process-for-utilizator-and-abc-apparel-products/

– Casper updates and redelivery are down –

Casper vend is having some technical issues that is effecting a bunch of creator update systems and redelivery terminals, this includes me and abc apparel.

We have attempted to contact them about it but they dont have any real costumer support and just a shitty automated ticket system, so this is going to take a while.

Anyway, please dont spam me with mesages about update cards and redelivery not working, follow this blog to know when its fixed and try again, if it still doesnt work, than contact me.

– 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.

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.
