Brought to you by another collab of PsiCorp and RAPTORDOG – the Gargoyle avatar kit!
The nod toward the familiar cartoon show might be quite obvious to those who remember it, and that was the inspiration behind making this avatar. Designed by RAPTORDOG’s own Verity Voxel, these will be available exclusively at Abnormality, starting at Februrary 7th!

The avatars contain the usual complement of features you’ve come to expect – bento heads, moveable tails and wings, wide compatibility with popular mesh bodies, BOM support etc – but for this one we also came up with a few extra tricks!

  • Animesh wings! – As a first, this avatar kit will contain both the standard bento wings, as well as animesh versions. These make full use of what animesh can do, and offer much more detailed animations!
  • A stone form! – Much like in the classic show, all colors also include a set of stone textures with the appropriate appliers, as well as the possibility to use either regular, white glowing or stone texture effects for the eyes!
  • Manes! – Both a regular, tintable version as well as a stone version! Enjoy a rigged mane to go along with the avatar!
  • Pedestals! – What good would stone forms be without a place to perch? And hey, those poses look familiar…

Pricing for the avatar kits will be 1200L$; a fat pack will also be available, containing all 7 colors for 3350L$! They will be available starting February the 7th, starting at noon SLT for early access, or 3pm SLT for everyone else! The event will run until February the 28th, midnight SLT, until this time, the avatar will be available exclusively at the Abnormality event!

As of this post, there is a fix available targeting the Animesh Ovipositor, addressing an issue where the bits were rendered entirely unresponsive. If you are affected by this, please redeliver your purchase via any inworld location, either via the redelivery terminals or touching a vendor to access the menu!

This round, I’ve tackled a few smaller fixes mainly for avatars, to address various open issues.
The fixes available today include the following:

  • Shark kit – Improved the manual, removed section on digilegs, added section covering the alternate tails for bento genitals compatibility
  • Dragon kit – Fixed the spikes being misaligned on the large tail
  • Animesh Ovipositor – fixed the “self” animation being unable to trigger. The HUD should play it by pressing harder until you are past the last limp animation, the text trigger is /5 self
  • Animesh Equine Deluxe – fixed an issue with the vendor item text and marketplace desciption
  • Animesh Vernid – fixed an issue with the marketplace texts talking about the presence of a knot

For the first three, you may redeliver any affected items via the usual method; please visit any inwold store and access a redelivery terminal or touch a vendor to access the menu.
The latter two are simply text and listing fixes and require no action on your part!

In the wake of the first major update, a set of issues has cropped up, mostly directly caused by the changes made. This update should address them all, but if you find any other issues, please file a ticket on psicorp.freshdesk.com and I will make sure to get them addressed as soon as possible!

The fixes for this update include the following:

  • All variants: Fixed a permissions error causing animations to not play correctly
  • Belleza Jake: Improved rigging for slider deforms, improved normals
  • Maitreya: Fixed normals on outer mesh

Once again you should receive this update automatically. Due to the smaller nature of the update, the version numbering has not been changed. If you did not receive a redelivery within the next day or so, please find any inworld store to redeliver manually.
Should any further issues arise, they will be logged and fixed as soon as possible.

After the release of the Animesh & Bento vaginas, many people have run into deformation issues, mainly centered around the hip length shape slider. Until recently, while a potential fix existed, I was unable to actually import the fixed rig into SL. Now however, due to updated software and with the Vernid wrapped up, I finally was able to address the issue along with some further fixes and improvements:

  • Fixed strange deformation when using hip length, deformation is now a LOT more forgiving
  • Improved the blending mesh by extending it, this should hopefully eliminate any visible seams
  • Polished animations, added a bit more motion to them and cleaned up inconsistencies
  • Fixed issues with some trans versions

Please note that the Dev Nana version may not be a perfect fit yet, but further improvements may happen yet. This is as good as it gets unfortunately given the state of the devkit.

If you run into any issues, please file a ticket on psicorp.freshdesk.com – do NOT use marketplace reviews for bug reporting; while I try and read them all, there is no guarantee that I won’t miss one, and it is much harder for me to properly track issues this way. I do expect issues to arise given the sizable volume of this update, but I plan on fixing them in a timely manner.

Lastly, you should for the first time receive automated redeliveries – which is likely where you got this link from. This is a one-off measure due to the severity of the rigging issue being addressed.

After what was a very successful weekend thanks to you all, it is time to address a handful of issues that cropped up with the Vernid avatars. The full changelog is listed here, for updates, please visit any inworld location to access the redelivery terminals, or touch any vendor to open the menu and choose redelivery there!

  • Fixed the female heads not having asymmetrical texture options on the face object
  • Fixed the leg fluff on some legs not texturing
  • Fixed a materials seam on the cheek fluff
  • Fixed rig issues on Maitreya/Jake digilegs
  • Added links to the Royal devkits to the Royal packs
  • Correctly added the Vernid rigging devkit to the manual
  • Updated Texture devkit & custom appliers to include fixed fluff specular map
  • Fixed tail fluff responding when ear fluff was being toggled

In the near future, I will additionally start clearing some of my bug report backlog that accumulated working on the Vernids, as well as finally implementing the rigging fixes needed on the bento vaginas, along with tackling any other open issues regarding them!

It is time for a new avatar once again! This time around, we tackled the popular Vernids, created by LiLaiRa! Also a special thank you to my fiancée for making this possible and getting me in touch with them!

After some long hours refining them, I can finally get these avs into your hands! As with all avatar kits, they’ll have some nice, detailed face animations, all aimed at capturing the slightly crazed demeanor of these guys and gals! Additionally, they are very customizable: The heads feature various fur and scale detail toggles, letting you dial in your preferred style, while each color comes both with and without arm and leg scales on the skin!

Furthermore, the tail and body fluff items also come in several variations, allowing for even more variation!

BOM (aka Bakes On Mesh) is also supported out of box, and the appropriate skins will be included as well of course! And let’s not forget the hypno eyes!

Also, Royal versions will be offered as well! For anyone curious, Royal vernids are a paid version of the otherwise free to own/make your own species, featuring horns, as well as a different set of male genitals (oh yes, did I mention the animesh Vernid penis, also releasing alongside this?). These will both be available for people new to the species via both an add-on and a mega-pack (imagine a royal vernid fat pack), which will include the 25$ MYO payment toward the artist. If you already are an owner of a Royal Vernid, there will be means in place to manually verify this and let you access the upgrades etc without the extra fee, of course!

For compatibility, they will support Maitreya, Legacy, eBody Reborn, the slink Physique line, Belleza and signature bodies, as well as our own Nova bodies. In the future, more models will be added!
Please keep in mind the need to obtain a flat chest mod for any female base bodies as well, Vernids do not possess breasts!

Pricing wise, the base kits will run 1200L$, the addons, fat packs etc will be priced accordingly, with fat packs designed to save 50% over buying the lot color by color!

Lastly, release times and dates!

  • Saturday, Nov 12th – Noon SLT at Knotty Beach
  • Sunday, Nov 13th – Noon SLT at YIFF

We look forward to seeing you there, and are excited to hear what you have to say about them!
