Update – Slink Physique hotfixes!

We had a great response to our update just before Christmas, and some wonderful feedback, thank you very much to those that got back to us with comments!

BODY UPDATES

This was an epic project that we undertook over several months of pretty intense work, and, as with anything on this scale, there are bound to be a few little issues that don’t come up until it’s released to the wild, and people start using it for real. That said, this release went very smoothly, with very few issues, and because we don’t like to leave these things too long, we have today released an update with a couple of fixes and a couple of changes based on the feedback we received!

It is currently in the redelivery terminals, and you can get your update right now! Here is what has changed!

Get yours at Slink

  • updated a script to prevent a potential crash when using the Slink Personal applier HUDs
  • Added some help panels to the HUD layout to assist with screen positioning.
  • Moved HUD to top left attachment point to assist with screen positioning. Editing handles should also be over the S icon, rather than offscreen.
  • [female bodies only] Added a magnification section to the Alpha tab to assist with selecting the smaller areas in the chest and back
  • Fixed an issue that was causing the skin layer not to ignore alpha channels in skin textures, resulting in lighting and texture layer glitches
  • [female original body only] Fixed an issue that was causing the tattoo and stocking layers on the lower legs to clip with the skin layer

CREATORS KIT UPDATES!

We have put updated creator kit bags into the redelivery terminals, adding a few logos here and updating a couple of notecards there but most importantly, we have added 2 new features:

If you previously have a resellers kit/shoe sellers kit, the auto hide and foot switcher scripts will be in those kits when using redelivery to resend yourself those kits.

Auto Alpha scripts for creators, so you can make your own mesh creations turn off parts of the Slink bodies when worn

and

Foot switcher scripts for shoe creators! You can now put one simple script in your shoes to tell the Deluxe feet which height foot they should be!! Your customers don’t need to worry about switching via the Deluxe HUD, the feet will automatically set themselves correctly 🙂 (Only for the Slink Avatar Enhancement Deluxe Feet)

For current approved mesh creators, there is a new creators kit available for you. Please contact Slink Resident to get your name added to the system! New approvals will receive it when their kits are sent.

(Texture tester mannequins and new 3d files will be coming in the new year!)

Slink Physique? A huge update!!

An update for the silly season??

We at the Slink HQ have been a little quiet lately, but that doesn’t mean we haven’t been hard at work, developing new features and products for our wonderful and supportive customers!

Today we are pleased to announce the release of the December 2016 Physique body updates! We have done extensive work on the Physique system, both externally and internally to make for a better overall experience for those who wear these bodies.

If you own one of the 3 Slink Physique bodies, run over to Slink and pick up your free update from the redelivery terminals in the store!!

(if your body is not in the redelivery terminal, drop a NC to Slink Resident and she will help you!)

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes!

The biggest change you will notice is that we have completely redesigned the HUD. Previously all the features were contained on one page, and adding new features was impossible, simply because we didn’t have the space to do it!

So we sat down and brainstormed our ideal method for interacting with the Physique body, and we hope you will love what we came up with!

You can see the new HUD and its features here

We have separate the features out onto their own individual tabs, so now you can easily navigate to a specific area of the HUD and use just the feature you want, instead of trying to find it among everything else.

We have added new features to Physique as well:

  • added alpha cuts around the chest, back and pelvis to help fit those difficult clothes.
  • the ability to control the strength of the transparency mask on the tattoo, clothing, and underwear layers
  • the ability to tint each layer without having to go to a new HUD to do it!
  • The ability to control the level of glossiness and environment reflections that are applied to specular maps on the different layers
  • The ability to tint the specular maps for some very cool effects!
  • The ability to enable fullbright and glow on your layers. If you want glowy knickers, go for it 🙂
  • We have updated the built in skin textures to make them prettier and shinier, and added some basic makeup options for the Visage heads right on the Physique HUD!

Of course the guys aren’t left out with this update – the Physique Original, Hourglass and the Physique Male are all updated today!

Auto Alpha scripts!

The other big news we have is that we have created an Auto Alpha system that should provide you a lot of flexibility in how you wear mesh clothing with our Physique bodies!

There is a script packed in the body folders to allow body wearers to create their own Auto Alpha mini HUDs to either save with an outfit, save with the folder of clothing, or even add to moddable mesh clothing themselves!

The creators kit should be updated shortly as well to include a script for creators to add to their clothing (among other things!) 🙂

A quick note on backwards compatibility:

At Slink we have a strong aversion to breaking existing content that has been created by other people for our body parts, and this update is no different. The shape and weighting of these bodies has not changed in any meaningful way, and all your appliers and mesh clothing will still work as they always have!

Slink – Claw Nails

Female Claw Nails Vendor

 

Slink Claw Nails have been updated to be an all in one add on for all Slink Female feet. Claw Nails & Pawpads are avatar enhanced so that you can use your Slink or Omega nail huds to choose your own polished look.

This is an add on item, you must have Slink avatar enhanced feet singles or deluxe to be able to wear them.

If you have a previous version of the female claw nails you can update them free to the new system. Contact Slink Resident for updates.

There is a demo available to try in the store

Slink Mainstore

 

New feet, and a big body parts update at Slink!

PLEASE NOTE: All of the single feet are available in the store, and FREE updates to V3 for the seamless ankles, redesigned easy to use Single Set Hands and Feet HUD, built in ankle locker and PHYS size buttons are in the Redelivery terminals.

Both female bodies (Original and Hourglass) have also been updated for free, as have all of the female single hands and all 4 hand packs.

You can get your updates from the redelivery terminals, or contact Slink Resident.

And now…. What is NEW in this release?

  • Warning: Long post, lots of pictures!! Heaps of information!

Today I am releasing the newest sets of feet in the Slink Female Avatar Enhancement range.
Slink Mainstore Teleport

These new feet are Kitten, for all your vintage needs, and Pointe for the dancers among us.


WHY NOW?􀀂

The last time Slink released feet was nearly 3 years ago, with the release of the High style at Shoetopia. For a long time, the feet have only been available as 3 separate purchases, due to the fact that they were released at very different times.

WHY THESE 2 STYLES?

I have had many requests for both of these styles over the last few years. Slink customers wanted a set of feet that was a height between the Flat and the Mid feet, and I’ve often been asked for the Pointe feet for dancers, roleplayers, and photography.

WHAT IS THE DELUXE PACK?

In the new DELUXE PACK, we have combined all 5 sets of feet (3 original and 2 new) into one attachment, and created a HUD for easy selection of the feet style that you need with the click of a button. You can mix and match, and turn them off as needed!

The Deluxe Pack is not an update, it is a new product, available now for the first time.

WHAT ABOUT THOSE THAT ALREADY OWN FEET?􀀃

We want everyone who already owns one or more pairs of the single feet to be rewarded for their support, but unfortunately our technology doesn’t realistically allow us to extend a loyalty discount exclusively to current feet owners…

So, we have decided to release the single Kitten and Pointe feet at the usual price of $675L each, but for the first 2 weeks after release (3rd April to 16th April) the Deluxe Pack of all 5 feet with improved HUD will be priced at just $1350L, which is equal to just 2 of the single feet! Think of it as buying the Pointe and Kitten styles, and getting the original 3 styles and the very cool Deluxe HUD features as a bonus!

After the special offer period, the price of the pack will be increased. This pack will never be this price again, so get in and get it while it’s hot!!

What else is in this update?

  • All of the female feet have been updated to have a seamless join with the Female Physique original and Hourglass bodies.
  • There is now a built in ankle lock in the Utilities HUD, so no one has any excuse for broken ankles!!
  • The Hands and Feet Utilities HUD has been made over, hands and feet are now on separate tabs for ease of use, and there is a handy infographic included.

Slink Hands and Feet Utils HUD Hands Tab Guide

  • There is now a PHYS button on the hands and feet tabs, which will activate the ankle and wrist best suited for your Physique Original and Hourglass bodies.
  • Because of this, both of the bodies also needed to be updated at the same time. You will find them in the re-delivery terminal. If you want truly seamless ankles, you must update your Physique body.
  • All of the (female) hands, feet and bodies have had a very small update to the latest Omega Script.

Female Hands Large

  • The Ballet Slipper style Margot has had a little facelift, and now works with all 5 styles of feet! Margot cleverly listens to the Deluxe feet HUD, to change when you change your feet, and there is also a Mini HUD available for those with single feet, that allows you to match your Margot to your style of feet with the click of a button! It’s pretty cool 🙂 If you previously bought Margot, you will find the update in the redelivery terminal!

Slink West – New Sim, New Chat, New Gift

Slink West Logo 1024Slink West 1Slink West 2

We have exciting things to announce.

Slink West Sim has been remodeled, giving us more space, and you a better opportunity to enjoy not only the stores, but the location as a destination to enjoy spending time at. It is located directly opposite the Slink  Mainstore, and even includes a Slink store so that you do not have to travel back and forth if in need of updates, re-deliveries etc.

We have some new tenants and older tenants in the new build, and we hope you will enjoy all of them.

We would like to thank Whimsy Winx for all of her landscaping and layout work on the complete remodel of the Sim. She has made the sim an incredible photo opportunity for those looking to take some great pictures of Slink compatible products, or just have fun on location. Check out her themed vignettes scattered around the builds.

We have opened Slink West Group Chat! it was always our intention to have it possible to chat about Slink/Compatible items in a fun and jovial setting. It made it difficult with it being our Store Group in the past, so we have decided to open up Slink West Chat,  so that people can have the freedom to discuss all things Slink Compatible, in an environment where Slink 3rd party creators are also involved.

You can find the Rules for the group HERE.

To Join Group – Copy and paste the following into open chat, open chat history and click the link to join the group.

secondlife:///app/group/a65f4ae7-af66-15e7-618f-287c0f5cbb9f/about

We understand group space is limited for some, we do have a Slink Subscribo if you want to drop your Slink group for your Slink West Group. Both groups are FREE and will remain free, so you can pick up the Slink one when shopping to still earn store credit if desired.

Slink has a GIFT item exclusively for the Slink West sim location. It is a Special colour of the Lulu add on shoes for the Slink Mid Feet. The Gift is located next to the mid feet in the store at the far end of the Slink West sim – couldn’t have it too close to the other store that would have just been silly.
