ADV Version 1.01 Release – Wowmeh, Ghetto Booty & Manoua’s Muscles

In March 2014 after an eyewatering amount of time in development, I proudly released the ADV Applier system on to the grid.
ADV, our ADVanced Mesh Applier system, is a massive technical innovation designed to give customers fast simple access to Violet Studios Skins and Clothing by simply cutting out the need for thousands of separated appliers, and rather building scripts to control various products.

At the time of launch, I am not sure if customers really understood what ADV was about, but a few did come forward and asked if I would look at some products. And now, I can show those customers who have bought an ADV Skin or Clothing item what this system really can do with the first major update to ADV.

At the launch, ADV only really had one script install product, specifically for Phat Azz.
Now, I do have to apologise to customers here, but if you have installed the Phat Azz script previously, you will find there is a V1.1 script in the update. This has been done to take advantage of both clothing layers, so I would recommend that you remove the original script and replace it with the new 1.1 script.

Joining the Phat Azz scripts you will find three new products joining the line up.
We have produced a script to fit in to the uLukie Ghetto Booty.
Also, you will find we have produced another pair of scripts for the Manoua’s Muscle Body Range.
Finally, the much mentioned Wowmeh Fitted Mesh bodies have now got the ADV scripting too.

So, with Version 1.01, you have skin and clothing ADV options for  Polymorph (at the moment just the Wideloads), Phat Azz, Sking Brazillia, Ghetto Booty, Manoua’s Muscle Bodies, and the Wowmeh Body.

As always, ADV is an interactive process between Violet Studios and our customers.
As long as a item you have uses the SL Body textures, its Mod, and its set up in a predictable way, we can most likely convert that product to work with ADV, and then open up new options not just for you, but for other customers as well, and very quickly too.

Send a note to Hemi Violet, and I will arrange to meet up and take a look and see how I can help.

So... finally.
Where do you get the Update?

The 1.1 Update is free so don’t worry about that.
I have put out the update in several spots around the Violet Studios main stores.

You can find it in
The Customer Service centre (that’s in the middle of the lake)
Verotic Skins Main Store (teleport Landing area – its behind the Desk)
Demon Studio – Whats new Area (look on the boards by the stairs)
LTX Store – in the Teleport landing area
Verotic Clothing – its at the landing area and dotted around the store too.

Enjoy the Update!

**** ADDENDUM****

Seems like inbetween our initial research and development in to Manoua's Muscles, there has been an update released which has changed the design.
We have just done a minor fix on the original scripts which deal with Pre Version 1.6 models of Manoua's Muscle Bodies, and we have create a whole new line up of Version 1.6 scripts which now give you access to the lastest body.
If you have already got copies of the script and dont have the 1.6 versions, pop back to store and grab the updated box.
Sorry about that

Verotic & LTX Clothing – ADV Mesh Applier system

This is a short update with a large implication – In March 2014 we released after a vast effort our ADV System designed to apply Skins to other people mesh products.
This was always going to be part 1 though, as there was a second system that needed to be looked at – the ADV Clothing project.
Virtually all mesh body part replacement systems on the grid, including our own Polymorph lines feature a two layer clothing set up.
The ADV Clothing Applier system has taken every Violet Studios clothing product for sale at the moment, and converted them at great cost (wanna see a migrane?) to the ADV System.

What that means is, in one quiet but powerful swoop, all of Verotic Clothing and LTX is now featuring the ultra flexible ADV applier which is effectively a swiss army knife when it comes to mesh.
At this moment, this means that with the ADV scripts installed in your products of choice (these are available for free in store), you can apply to Polymorph (at the moment just the Wideloads), Phat Azz, Sking Brazillia, Ghetto Booty, Manoua’s Muscle Bodies, and the new Wowmeh Body.
See the above posting for more on the ADV 1.1 Release, and remember, as time goes on, ADV will be adding more products to its supported list, giving you semi future proofed compatibility in a fraction of the time that building traditional appliers would, plus its so much simpler to work with.

Polymorph Wideloads Version 1.1 Update Released

Roughly a month ago, I released our first generation of Wideloads Fitted Mesh lower bodies (or Butts if you want) .
Since then, we have been listening to customers feedback, request and also finding out some new if rather strange techniques when it comes to Fitted Mesh.

The result of this comes together in the Wideloads Version 1.1 release.
The improvements are split in to two areas.

Firstly the Skin / Clothing layers have had extensive clean up work done over how the texture sit on them, cutting out a lot of the more jagged edges and texture distortions. Customers will now find everything works a great deal better.

Secondly, thanks to a strange "bug" of fitted/rigged mesh, the wideloads have now moved to seamless skin tight tattoo / clothing layers.
This design method has allowed us to solve multiple issues all at the same time. As these are skin tight they now behave exactly as you would expect with no gap between the layers. This in turn has cured all clip through issues on the clothing layers hence on the new HUDs, there is no clip fix system as its no longer needed. The disappearing tattoo layer is now also a thing of the past, and the minor issue that was going on over the waist area with compounding layers is now also a thing of the past.

I would like to thank all those customers who got in touch with their issues, and as always have helped to build better products for everyone.
Already have the Wideloads - To get the 1.1 release, all you need to do is wear the updater in the sales box and the new model will be sent to you
