Official statement: HUDs, even the easiest ones, are the bane of my existence. Yes, they are. I am too blonde to get them. /end
Kahli Designs is about to release their newest outfit: A tunic+pants outfit for gals! It comes in a wiiiide array of colours (16 to be exact) and in the usual standard sizes. You all know Kahli Designs (a teamwork by Kahlidesigns Resident and Viland Resident) for their awesome outfits for men and apparently my oh so subtle whining was heard. This outfit convinces its buyer with detailed textures, pretty colours and a very natural shape. The shape of the boobs is welldone, Mister Viland! Each colour comes with three texture choices: Clean, dirty and bloody. I am displaying the dirty version because I really like the rugged vibe it has. The colours range from earthen, natural colours to more vibrant ones. You can pick these via a HUD.
The rigging has, as per usual, been done very nicely. The tunic sits naturally (wearing size M, I feel fat compared to all those Size Zero avis, LOL) upon Arica’s shape. The best thing is though: It comes in four pieces: belt, boots (not shown), tunic and pants!. Wooohoo! All of these can be mixed and matched and worn separately. Yay for that! Also: The fatpack comes with a HUGE HUD instead of cluttering your inventory, too, which I love.
Imho, Kahli and Viland have don a very good job on this one!! There is but a TINY hint of a ponyrider effect, but it is barely noticeable on me. Plus, I really love the stitchings on the sides of the pants, too.
So, why do I whine about HUDs then??
Well, Kahli sent me the fatpack which comes with the above mention HUD. I attached it, clicked the colour-buttons for each texture…nada happened. I attached it once again, again nothing. Hmm. Of course i paid NO attention to the little blood/dirt icons. Nope. Instead, I IMed Kahli and pointed out the HUD doesn’t work.
Minutes later, I browse blogs and stumble upon Imogen’s, she blogged the outfit as well! And for SOME reason, it worked for her. Hmmm. So, I try it again, and again nothing. I try to move the HUD, click randomly…and tadaaa. The texture changes. It dawns on me then! the little icons are the one I have to use. Taddda!!! Everything works. I send Kahli another IM telling her that I am an idiot and please to ignore all else. We chat some and I am about to ask where the clean version of the tunic is. Just when I am about to type, Kahli tells me “Oh yeah, the soap icon…bla bla bla.” I delete my message quickly. Soap Icon? I re-attach the HUD for what feel sthe 1000th time today. Oh. Soap icon!! That isn’t some little goldbar with their logo, that’s soap! Dumdidum…
Ever been blushing really hard in rl? LOL. I hate HUDs, even if they are super helpful.
