The New release from Slink is a Tri-Colour Wedge Add On shoe. These fit over the Medium Height Barefeet rigged only. There are demos available to try on the new stand located on the silver square inside of the store.

Medium height Barefeet Rigged vendors are also available to purchase from separately on the same stand.

These shoes come with 3 strap colours as well as a hud to change wedge colours from light wood, dark wood and black wood. So with a single shoe purchase that is 3 shoes in one.
If you purchase the pack of these shoes you also get a HUD that allows you to change all the strap colours from each and every single option, so that gives you thousands of possibilities in the one shoe.

A modest sale @ Slink

I’m going to share a little personal information here which is not something I would normally do.  My father-in-law is sick.  It’s terminal and it’s a very difficult time for my family.  I don’t really want to talk about it, but my husband and I do have to go back to the Netherlands, soon.  He is travelling this weekend, I am travelling at the end of May.

So, to help us a little with our plane fares between Australia and the Netherlands, I am having a sale at Slink this week only, 30% off everything (except the hands and feet, which were so recently updated, I feel bad for putting them on sale so soon)

Sale starts 30th April midnight SLT and runs until the 5th of May at 11:59PM SLT.  I will be closing the store briefly before midnight to prepare.

I will post again when the sale actually starts, for now, I am just posting an advance notice!

Introducing the Slink Avatar Enhancement System!

The Slink Avatar Enhancement System has just gone live.  This is an update to the Slink mesh hands and feet (and perhaps in the future, other similarly compatible body basics) that allows SL’s amazing skin and clothing makers to provide HUDs to use with their skins and stockings for a perfect match with one single click!

The update is now available at Slink  The update is available through the redelivery terminal for those of you who own the Slink mesh natural and medium womens feet, and the womens mesh hands! :)

There is more information about these hands and feet on the customer support page

The updated hands have 4 different nail length and style options, and anyone can apply for a personal kit to create their own compatible nail textures for the hands and feet!!  More information about the Developers Kits can be found here.

I hope you enjoy this update!  New shoes are coming soon for these feet :D

The mesh hands are finally @ Slink!

I have just put these beautiful mesh hands on the floor at Slink

*click through for a larger view*

This release set comes in 15 poses, sold individually, as sets of 5 or a full fatpack.  They are made to the female standard size specifications.

Please read the instructions carefully, these are not wear-and-go hands.  Some assembly is required for the best results! :)

 

Lighting issues in SL pertinent to matching your Slink feet

There is an issue in SL at the moment where the difference in lighting with different combinations of basic and atmospheric lighting makes tinting your body attachments difficult if not downright impossible.  I have logged a Jira for this issue here.

Anyway, the problem is thus:

When your Atmospheric shaders are turned off, or your Basic shaders are turned off, the light that falls on your avatar from the sun and local lights is very different to the light that falls on prim objects.  Since weighted (rigged) mesh is just another type of prim object, this means that the feet will never ever match the leg they are attached to, no matter how much you adjust the ankle blender and foot tint.  As soon as you turn around, or stand next to a local light, you will see a very ugly join.

To other people with the shaders enabled, your feet will look just fine as long as your ankle blender and foot tint and texures are the same.

To workaround this issue:

1. go to Me, Preferences, Graphics
2. Check Basic and Atmospheric shaders.

If you experience loss of framerate with these shaders on, ensure your water reflections are turned to minimal, and drop your draw distance down a little.

If either of these options are greyed out/not available, then there is a good chance that your video card doesn’t support these shaders and you may need to look into getting an upgrade, as this is the least of the problems an unsuitable video card can cause.

If you enable these shaders but your feet don’t improve, you may need to look into updating your video card drivers.  The major video card suppliers update their driver sets on a very regular basis to keep up with changes in technology.

To find out about your computer, go to Help, About Second Life.  In here is listed your system spec, and you will find information about your operating system and version, video card vendor and video card type.  You will need this informaton to find an updated driver.

From here, provided you have an ATI/AMD or Nvidia card, you can go to the manufacturers website and search for the most recent driver.
