After a week off to visit a furcon, both myself and Daeshana have returned!
We are happy to announce the release dates for our upcoming dragon avatars now, and you’ll be happy to hear that the wait is over soon!

This weekend, we’ll get those lovely avatars into your hands, at the following times and locations:

  • Saturday the 26th at Knotty Beach, from 2pm to 4pm SL time
  • Sunday the 27th at Heart of Gold, from noon to 2pm SL time

As always we will have music going and our usual money raffles, and we will be there personally to show off the shiny new drakes and answer any questions you might have!
So be sure to mark the date in your calendars and drop by.

Finally let’s not forget that release weekend means sale weekend!
As with our previous avatar releases, during Saturday and Sunday, all Avatar Core type bodies will be sold at 1000L$ down from 1200, and the new dragon avatar kits will be sold for 500L$, down from 600. Of course owners of the old mesh dragons will be provided with the means to update for free, as before!

Once again we have been busy, working on yet another avatar project. As the title image should quite unmistakably show, this time it’s dragons!

After many years, we figured that our old mesh dragon avatars were due for a total rework. They were the very first avatars we built to use a mesh body, and their age is definitely showing now. So what better time than now, when we released our Avatar Core mesh body line not long ago, to update these avatars, and give people the benefit of a current-gen mesh body, and all the perks that brings with it?

Of course we didn’t just stop there. We redesigned the avatars from the ground up, to look much more interesting and detailed, as well as made copious use of the Bento skeleton system. That way, we can bring you expressive facial animations, animated hands, a swaying tail, and a truly beautiful set of animated wings.

 

Let’s talk about the features a little more:

  • Materials & textures: We used a new set of tools to create these avatar textures, using it to learn to make better than ever textures, which should be quite impressively visible with the fire dragon displayed above. As usual now, customers will also receive access to the PSD files used to create these textures, letting modders put together their own textures, and even sell their custom skins. We took special care to make the textures as modular as possible, so that creating new styles is as easy as can be.
  • The HUD: We are once again using our tried and true avatar HUD for Avatar Core based avatars, with low performance impact and easy to use controls. You can quickly tweak all aspects of the avatar, control its effects, and toggle on and off most features.
  • The head: Fully animated with the Bento skeleton system, and features four distinct facial expressions, which can also be mixed and matched. In addition to this, optional earfins are on the avatar which can be hidden at the touch of a button, and you can pick from four different horn styles to further distinguish your looks.
  • The wings: Our first animated wings, and we poured a lot of effort into it. You can choose from different rest poses, have them fold forward when you sit, hug people, or spread them impressively. And once you take to the skies, our adaptive flight animations will really bring out the beauty of rigged wings, adjusting its animations to your flying.
  • The tail: Improved rigging over previous models, which allows us to do further animations. Several poses are available, as well as a range of more… interactive adult animations

So you might ask, when can you get your hands on these avatars? Real soon! We experienced some delays due to these avatars simply being quite work intensive, and we really want to bring you great quality works rather than rush them out there. Everything is mostly done, save for updating the special edition versions – Fire & Ice. Expect another release information post within the next few weeks however!

 

This brings us to another important note!
As of next week, myself (Psistorm) and my husband / partner in crime (Daeshana) will be away for a week, starting on the 14th, up to and including the 21st of August. As such, customer service inquiries will be answered very slowly. We thank you for your understanding, and apologize for any inconveniences. In our absence, please make sure to file any support requests on psicorp.freshdesk.com – we will get back to every request once we return!

As of today, we rolled out a small update to all Avatar Core products. The goal was to fix a few issues with the clothing autohide system as detailed below:

  • Fixed a HUD typo causing wrong body alpha exports
  • Fixed an out of memory possibility on the clothing autohide script
  • Fixed an error where detaching clothing would not properly render faces visible again

Affected by the update are the Avatar Core HUD as well as the clothing autohide script. To obtain the fixed products, simply visit any inworld vendor or redelivery terminal and touch them to access their menu.

Prior to today, users who bought the sculpted vagina back in the day had access to a smaller scale update – just like users of the old, sculpted canine/equine penises – and had to contact us to be switched over to the full, mesh based update path. Meaning the one that also comes with piercing variants, rather than just a single, unpierced version

It was then pointed out to me by Daeshana that this was silly, and I agreed, thus from this point on, any owners of the old, sculpted vagina can redeliver to the new, mesh based path straight away without any need to contact us.

As of this moment, we released two minor updates, affecting the husky avatar kits, as well as the cetacean. The following fixes were made:

  • Husky Avatar Kit: Fixed the unpacker not correctly giving out the right male eye
  • Cetacean Penis / Herm Set: Fixed the hard/short/raised states not displaying effects correctly

To get an update, visit any inworld vendor or redelivery terminal to access past purchases. Should you find any purchases missing, please file a customer ticket under psicorp.freshdesk.com and attach a snapshot of your item with the edit window open so that we may restore it to your account.

With the release of our new husky just hours away, we’d like to talk about all that’s going on this weekend again.

Firstly, we’ll have the husky release today at 2pm SL time, over at Knotty Beach, with music, general party times, and L$ raffles.

Tomorrow, another party will happen at The Ark, Noon SL time, for anybody who either missed the first one or who just loves partying!

 

Furthermore, we will be having an inworld sale on both the husky avatar kits as well as our Avatar Core mesh bodies. The kits will be on sale for 500L$ (normally 600), whilst the Avatar Core bodies will be sold at 1000L$ (normally 1200). So if you’re looking to get into these avatars, drop by inworld this weekend, the sale will last until some time Monday!
Please take note: This is ONLY for inworld sales, the marketplace isn’t affected by this!

Lastly, we released a minor update for the Canine Mesh parts, both male & herm, to add a new, matching fur texture for the male sheath, built to be a proper fit for the new husky kits. Of course, the new fur look might do well on lots of other avatars, so get your updates and enjoy!

As always, we’ve been busy on new things for you, and are happy to present our latest kit for the Avatar Core mesh body line – huskies!

We worked long and hard to make those adorable piles of floof look the way they should, and are finally at a point where we feel confident in making them available for you to buy.

As with the cobra before, we focused on using the new SL bento skeleton to make an expressive and alive avatar, with animated facial features as well as bento capable hands and tail. Rigging has been carefully built to be smooth and functional, once again supporting shape sliders to the best of our abilities. We also made some updates to our HUD, giving you the ability to put together facial expressions by combining ear, eye and mouth expressions, and saving those as presets to recall at the click of a button.

A special challenge was the creation of a new, better looking fur, which I’m happy to say we pulled off, using materials to create a glossy, soft looking fur coat. As usual, you can tweak the material settings via the included HUD, or use the provided PSD files to make your own colors and patterns.

We will of course also be releasing latex variants along with our regular options, so for the lovers of shiny, squeaky things, there will be plenty of options as well! Pricing will be set at 600L$, HOWEVER we will be holding a special sale during the release weekend again, where our inworld price for the kit will be at 500L$, whilst our Avatar Core bodies will be sold at 1000L$ instead of the usual 1200. So next weekend will be the best time to grab yourself one of these adorable floofs!

 

The release party will be held at Knotty Beach once more, next Saturday, the 6th of May at 2pm SL time (2pm PDT). There will be music, dancing, and our L$ raffles once again, and of course we’ll be there to show off the new avatars as well as answer any questions you might have!

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 🙂
