I am happy to announce the release of the first of Slink mesh body parts for the updated SL Skeleton (Project Bento) which allows for nice and realistic animations for hands and faces.
About the Dynamic Hands
This release is for the girls! (guys, yours are coming soon, promise!) The new Slink Dynamic hands are now available for purchase in the Slink Mainstore!!
BUT – the great news for people who already own the Slink Avatar Enhancement Mesh Hands, these are an UPDATE!! Details about the update are below.
These hands are made to be similar to the popular Avatar Enhancement static pose hands, but with the added benefit of being able to animate them! They work with all of your Slink and Omega skin, clothing and nail appliers, and they now respond to the glossy, environment and mask sliders on the Physique body Utilities HUD.
The Stiletto nails option is now its own addon (included with the hands!). This lets me offer 3 different nail lengths for that style as well as the original.
The nicest thing about animated hands is that they will work with animations from Slink, or anyone who makes animations for the updated skeleton. You will need an updated viewer to see these hands properly.
Also available in the store now is the first of what I hope to be many pose sets for these hands. This set is representative of the original static set that we have had available for the last couple of years.
Update details – or who gets what?
- If you previously purchased the Multipack of the Slink Avatar Enhancement female mesh hands, you will receive the new Dynamic Hands, the included idle animations, which give your hands a subtle lifelike movement, the Stiletto Nails addon and HUD, and the complete pose HUD shown below, containing the 15 poses from the original AvEnhance hands.
- If you purchased the smaller packs 1, 2 or 3, you will receive the hands, the Stiletto Nails addon and HUD, the idle animations and a pose HUD loaded with the 5 poses from the pack you already own.
- If you purchased one or more of the single hand sets, you will receive the Dynamic hands, the Stiletto Nails addon and HUD, and a pose HUD loaded with the single poses from the pack you already own. You will be able to purchase the idle animations separately in the store. If you purchased more than one base static pose previously, you will be able to add the extra poses to one single copy of the pose HUD. Instructions for doing this are in the pack 🙂 You will also be able to purchase the full static pose HUD in the Slink store!
You can now go to Slink, hit up the redelivery terminal and get your updated hands by simply requesting another copy of your hands purchases.
If your purchase is not in the redelivery terminal, contact Slink Resident inworld to fix it.
