PSA: V-Tech Needs a Foot Sock
Hello Alls; as promised I’m here with info on how to do a little fix on a small but rather eye twitching issue I found with the V-Tech appliers on the Belleza & Signature bodies.
Now if you are anything like me you don’t want that 6-pack abs and chiseled jaw line… Boy do those pretty female skins look so perfect…only if they didn’t require a Maitreya body and doing that whole Femboy look (nothing wrong with that though). Oh they don’t?… they look so nice and apply well because of the Omega…lets slide that eye down that nice Big Boy body Oooo nice….wait WTF is with this athletes foot thing! FAIL!!!
Found out real quick it was one I couldn’t live with for long when I switched to the Mudskin Sin Sin skin. So, I actually went around and demoed a ton of V-tech appliers all the same issue each and every time but I did fall in love with the [PF] Minji in my search. The Bunny and I decided then to put our heads together to come of with a fix and we found one so Yays!
(If you are still lost fear not I has Before & After shots)
Now you can see on the right it isn’t perfect but far better than the left and before I do go on I want to make some side notes:
- those are Belleza feet the “athletes foot” looks different on Signature
- If you don’t mind Slink feet and can wear them with your preferred body use those… I did this because I don’t like Slink feet
- Remember this takes patience along with a lot of trial & error so if you don’t want to bother with it no shame in that.
So if you have accepted the above lets get started
Things you will need:
- Photoshop, Gimp , or whatever you can use
- Omega Applier Dev Kit ver.4.3 (Omega Advanced Applier – Lower v1.61)
- A high quality pic of the op of your foot while wearing the skin you want to fix
Step 1: Take the template and the foot pic and open them in PS and then copy the skin pic to place in both circled areas.
Step 2: Adjust to both areas experiment, blend, paint, whatever (expect that trial and error here)
Step 3: upload into SL just your work not all the templates part to then put in the script of theOmega Advanced Applier – Lower v1.61 the asset UUID of your texture that will look like as follows:
Step 4: Put on that hud and apply on the tattoo layer…. There will be much testing needed so assume till you are happy you will be rinse and repeat of step 2 & 3.
This is quite a bit of work but well worth it! Also, I did speak to the [PF] creator who thought this fix was quite clever and will be looking into making her own fix for customers when she has time. So hopefully in the near future there will be a better ready to use fix for at least the [PF] skins \o/.
What I’m too lazy for credits…. it’s Monday! leave me a message and I’ll tell you what you want to know later.
