Just joined to say - I have been looking forward to the beta. Giving it a shot now. Cannot wait to see the other tutorials :slight_smile:

#UPDATE: I removed the “Move Horizontally” slider and replaced it with the “Size” slider. The Move Horizontally morph creates an instability in the eyes. I’ll return it if I ever get it to work properly…

I made some changes behind the scenes to improve usability. Namely, whenever you change sexes the sex is carried in the url and the page is reloaded. There is a weird issue with the way browsers cache the information concerning the avatar. This can cause some unpredictable morphing issues. It occurs if you edit, switch sexes and switch back. It can also occur if you try to open an avatar.json file and then attempt to open another… in this case I have disabled the open button after you load the avatar. If you click the refresh button you can load a different model.

I will work on posting some tuts this weekend… Oh, and I tested positive for Covid today. Nothing but fun around here… ?;O)

Fixed issues found in the demo. Fixed the female eyebrows 2, 3 and 4. Female tennis shoe #7 seems to be working fine now. I also could not replicate the strange error when loading the saved avatar.json file. I think that the tennis shoe and avatar.json file issues are due to that weird cache issue.

I have added links to download the skins used on the avatars. You can find them in the Atch section of the wearables… This way people can start to create their own custom skins… also, you can now download the mannequins needed to create attachments.

You can almost stretch out the corners of his head and make horns pretty easily! or… you can find some horns and attach them as a hair model in MakeAvatar.
