NOTE:

This section is for those who want to use their own SL head with Aesthetic Mesh Body.

If you use Aesthetic mesh head, you can skip this part.

This folder contains;

- Head Blenders separated in 2 skin tones, 5 sizes ( XS, S, M, L, XL ), and hairbase options (black, blond, bald)

- Full-body alpha that hides only SL body but show your own SL head

- Some basic skins for SL head that match the default skin of Aesthetic Mesh Body

- SL skin templates for making SL head skins

 

 

Please follow us step by step >

 

1) Wear the mesh body by attaching all objects in the "(NIRAMYTH) - AESTHETIC - Advanced Mesh Body" folder.

 

2) Detach mesh head off

 

3) Take off your current full-body alpha and wear "Alpha - Head Visible" in "(NIRAMYTH) - AESTHETIC - SL Head Matching" folder instead. Now you should see your default SL head with default skin on it.

 

4) Attach Head Blender in the folder. There are different sizes in the folder. You can choose one of them.

 

5) You may need to use click install skin on [HUD] HD SKIN INSTALLER to change the skin texture on the Head Blender to match with your mesh body textures. Please make sure you did NOT wear 2 skin HUDs simultaneously.

 

6) Use the "[HUD] COLOR & ALPHA" to adjust color tone of the mesh body (with Head Blender) to match with your SL head skin color. Besides the color tones on the palette, you can also open the color wheel below to fine-tune the color using RGB codes (Red, Green, Blue) to the tone you want.

 

NOTE:

Please note that the "[HUD] COLOR & ALPHA" will work only with mesh objects (mesh body, mesh head, mesh hands, mesh feet). It will NOT work with SL avatar or SL head. Because SL head is not a mesh object, so we cannot add the colors on it.

 

7) Now you have 2 options to choose between;

 

7.1) Use our preset shape (find in AESTHETIC - Avatar Shapes), then adjust the face to your desire look

OR

7.2) Use your own avatar shape to keep your face, but you need to edit your head and chin shape in appearance editing window to make your default head fit AESTHETIC Head Blender.

 

Here are some recommended numbers that your need to adjust.

> Head

   Head Size = 100

   Head Stretch = 30 - 60

   Head Shape = 40 - 60

   Edge Head = 40 - 60

   Head Length = 50 - 70

 

> Chin

   Chin Angle = 0 - 60

   Jaw Shape = 40 - 60

   Chin Dept = 30 - 60

   Jaw Angle = 50 - 70

   Chin - Neck = 0 - 35

 

These values are recommended but not limited. You still be able to adjust anything as you see it fit. You may want to adjust Torso and Legs shapes to the look you want.

 

8) We have added the SL skins (only head) that matched to the mesh body and we also included the skin matching template for skin making (SL-UV map). You can save the template images into your computer and create your own face using our template as a guide.
 

NOTE:

We have made SL matching head skins as a guide to match SL head skin to our mesh body (by using our template). We are not meant to make more SL head skins or make it as a default feature for this mesh body because we are focusing to develop mesh bodies and avatars in the future. With using Aesthetic mesh heads, you will not have problem with cut seams around the neck and the back of the head.
