Yes, time for a full on update once again folks 😀 – took me quite a long while this time around, but I
finally have everything at a point where I can get it out and into your hands.
Of course, I would bet you all are quite eager to hear a little more about what actually is in this release, so I’ll get right to it. Here’s a brief introduction of what all you can look forward to:
- A large round of bugfixing. Check the changelog further down, I took care of a lot of both general bugs and ones that only affected specific bits. Yes, the dragon color change bug is gone now!
I did a lot of extensive testing for this, so there should be significantly less bugs now compared to v4/v4.1. Also, modding got cleaned up a bit and is now making more sense and more stable.
- An all new bits HUD! I basically rewrote it from the bottom up, and it uses only about 1/10th the prim count of the old one, and was optimized and cleaned up a lot. So enjoy a prettier and much more responsive HUD with v5. Among other things, you now can control up to 5 bits of any type, even if they are the same type. So double-cock users rejoice! Furthermore, you may now scale bits via the HUD (yes even those linked in a herm set), so making adjustments doesn’t require edit mode any longer now for most things. And as extra goodie, you can now access the redelivery page from the HUD! So update from anywhere from now on.
- Texture appliers! People who are familiar with the Lolas Tango tits are going to know how this works. Pop a texture in, click it, and texture appears on tits. Except mine not only work with Tango tits, but also with my own. And all my other bits. So no more notecard fussing, and an easy way to market your custom cock/etc textures safely.
- Mesh boobs! Yes, those were a long time coming, but now they are here. And not just one set, but a whole four of them! Different sizes and shapes should make it easy to pick a set that suits your mood and fits your character. Whether you like big boobs, or want something for the more mature ladies or just want smaller and perky, there is something for you now. And lining up your avatar texture is easier than ever, thanks to the simple appliers that do the job for you as long as you have the texture on hand. And before you ask, yes, I will definitely deliver multiboobs. But since I like delivering quality, they will be a rigged mesh product once “project fitted mesh” is released. That way I can ensure that your lovely six-pack will move with your body properly and conform to your shape as it should!
- A pregnancy HUD! Yes, no more mama allpa or human focused or restraining HUDs. This is for the roleplayers and for the people who just sometimes want realism to be optional. And for all those who want their species and gender reflected by this system. So yes, I support herms, shemales, cuntbois and the works. And any species you want. Configure your cycle settings, how many offspring you get, even multi-pregnancy is in. Oh, and oviposition, too. And yes, you can do oviposition on people who usually can’t get pregnant, as long as they have a HUD. As a bonus, while the full pregnancy HUD is sold on it’s own (think of it as a heavily upgraded bits HUD), the default bits HUD now comes with a basic, male only menu. So you won’t have to make your desired partners buy a HUD first before you can get into some fun time either.
- A bondage and control API! This was again often requested, and I delivered. The CCS API is a safe, secure way to relinquish control of your bits – and pregnancy HUD! – to other people. Or things. Like tentacle playsets. Yes. And for those people who noticed the pregnancy HUD tie-in, yes that means you can force insemination and oviposition, so RLV-based fun can now result in some more long-term repercussions if that’s your thing. Of course, you can set varying levels of privacy for the API, as well as turn it off completely if that’s not your thing. Additionally, the API is fully documented for anyone to work with, so if you want to include it in your toys, there is no licensing or anything! See the link further down for the full documentation.
- A promise of things to come! More releases are scheduled for december, as well as for the coming year. Among other things, a new gas mask, as well as a new avatar later on in early 2014, using materials as well. Basically expect a rebirth of an old favorite on that one. Also some reworked cock models as well as a few all-new designs. Dragons should look forward to these coming months, but there will be fun for other people and species as well!
So that sums that up quite nicely I believe. With that said,there is of course the release party info. I will once again be giving out some L$ and some bits, so be sure to show up at the events to get a nice chance at those prizes! Of course, come and have some fun as well! Release dates and times are as follows:
- November 30th at 2pm SL time at Sharkfins club
- December 1st at 2pm SL time at YIFF
Check the PsiCorp Customers group for announcements, I will be passing around landmarks before the events again, as usual!
So in additional info, two more things. First of all, some special thanks for special people:
- My mate of course, for being there and putting up with me being in a less than good mood after some long and stressful days
- My super close friend Dae, who served as lead tester during development, and who was there near every day to poke at things and break them so I can get it just right
- Mitchy, an awesome husky, who helped me set up a support system and did an awesome job at refurbishing my back-end systems
