Since I was informed that many people were a bit confused by the way we talked about the cobra avatar, I’m taking the chance to sum up all the relevant information in one post 🙂
Firstly, let’s talk about sales. When the cobra was first released, we offered an inworld sale, offering our Avatar Core bodies for 1000 rather than 1200, and our Cobra Kits for 500 rather than 600. This was valid for the release weekend. As it stands, we will do these kinds of deals again, offering both our mesh bodies and the newly released kits cheaper during a release weekend. This should be a nice bonus for early birds and encourage people to pick up our avatars, so keep an eye open for more such deals in the future.
Secondly, let’s talk about cobra redeliveries. Right now, you either buy new, or redeliver an older cobra avatar. Due to us transitioning away from selling full avatars to selling a mesh body along with a variety of addon kits instead, we decided to implement a solution for those people who bought one of our avatars in the past. Rather than simply giving them the kit and saying “Here’s the cobra parts, now spend another 1200 to have a body”, we instead include two “light” versions of our mesh bodies (male + female) in the redelivery boxes.
Light versions differ from the full ones in that they a) lack clothing layers and b) lack omega applier support. This tailors them for use with the avatar it came with, basically, whilst allowing our old customers to wear a complete avatar out of the box, without having to purchase any additional items.
And now, we’ll sum up both cases in short again:
- Option A: You buy the Cobra Kit as a new product. You then buy – if you don’t already own – an Avatar Core mesh body, and that’s all that. You got a shiny avatar, and a really cool mesh body.
- Option B: You own an old cobra avatar, and have it redelivered. You find that you’d rather have clothing layers, or the androgynous body. You pick whichever body you wish to buy, and purchase it. You then contact us – via a ticket on psicorp.freshdesk.com, providing us with your SL name and stating which body you bought and, if everything checks out, we refund you 1000L$.
We hope this clears up any questions, if there is anything unclear, feel free to contact our support via psicorp.freshdesk.com 🙂
