Slink @ Skin Fair 2018

Big update for you today! Lots of things have been happening at Slink while we’ve been so quiet 🙂 We have been working hard to release an update to the Physique Female bodies, as well as the Physique Female HUD. Alongside this, we have a cool new body augment exclusively at Skin Fair 2018!

First – the new release!

Slink - Petite Pack Augment

This Augment is specially designed for the less endowed among us. It reduces the overall size of the breasts on the Physique bodies, and allows them to be reduced to almost flat, should that be what you desire! There is one that is perfectly compatible with Physique Original, and one that is perfectly compatible with Physique Hourglass. When you wear one of these augments with your body, it will cause the chest of your body to disappear, and then it will act as if it was always there, listening to the commands of the Physique female HUD, and all existing and new appliers for both Slink and Omega. (you will have to wear your Omega HUD to activate it)

When the augment is detached, the body goes back to it’s regular state.

The Petite Augment is available at Skin Fair 2018. It will be available at Slink once Skin Fair ends.

Now onto the update:

The Petite augment required an update to the Physique female bodies, to allow it to do what it needs to do, so you need to ensure that you are wearing Original 3.05 or higher, Hourglass 2.05 or higher, and the Physique Utilities HUD 4.0 or higher.
Wearing the petite augment with earlier versions of the body and HUD will result in errors and it won’t work properly.

You can get the updates from the redelivery terminals in the store.

What has been updated today?

  • Slink Physique Hourglass and Original Body
    • Fixed a glitch on the left arm tattoo layer
    • Tweaked a few seams here and there.
    • Updated the scripts inside to make compatible with Petite Augment
    • Updated the Physique Utilities HUD to:
      •  Add a tab to control your hands and feet including the Deluxe feet and Dynamic Hands. So now you can do all that from one HUD rather than wearing the Hands and Feet Utilities HUD along with your Physique HUD.
      • Reorganise the tabs so they are put away above your screen, rather than to the left of the screen. This means you can put the red S anywhere at the top of your screen instead of just at the top left corner
      • Reset the default glossiness setting to 75 instead of 51 when applying the skin sheen. The effect is still subtle, but hopefully a little less subtle than before 🙂
HUD Hands and Feet

The new Hands and Feet control tab on the Physique HUD

 

  • Slink Avatar Enhancement Single and Deluxe Feet
    • Fixed a glitch on the tattoo layer of the Pointe feet
    • Updated the scripts to allow the feet and ankles to be individually turned off and on – applies to both Deluxe and Single feet
    • Updated the Hands and Feet Utilities HUD to include buttons to toggle on and off Hands, and Feet.

What’s next for Slink?

In our hurry to get the update done for skin fair, a few things were pushed down in our to-do lists. The next things on the list are updating the creator kits for these new augments, and updating the Mens Physique HUD to integrate the Hands and Feet control.

As for what happens after that? Don’t lose your heads! 😉

 

The Slink Texture Studio – for Creators!

I have just released the Slink Texture Studio. This will help creators to test their applier textures before they are even uploaded! You can pick the Studio up by grabbing a personal HUD (FREE) from the Slink Mainstore, or free from the vendor you see below, or if you have previously been approved for a Skinmakers or Clothiers (includes tattoos and nails) applier kit, you can simply request a redelivery at the redelivery terminal and the Texture Studio is included within those bags! The studio includes 2 female and one male toolkit, and all the bits you need to test out your textures. It also assists you to create your Slink Applier HUD data notecards! Enjoy 🙂

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, you can request the above as a mesh creators add on kit. 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!)

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.

Feet Deluxe Ven small

 

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!

A new body @ Slink!!

I have just released this sexy, curvylicious body called Hourglass in the Slink Mainstore. This body is not an update to the Slink Physique original, but it uses the same system, so all your appliers will work just as they do with the original Slink Physique body. And yes, it does support Omega.

While I was working on this luscious lady, I received a message from one Blueberryxx who said she really wanted to make a gift to go with it, and how could I refuse such a generous, kind offer?! The lingerie pictured, in 16 gorgeous silky colours, is included in the bag when you purchase the body, and the original Physique body has also been updated to include the lingerie, so if you own it, get a new copy from the redelivery terminal! 🙂

Phys Large Hourglass

I have updated the Oxford Heels, the Tall Thigh Boots, the One Shoulder Dress and the Micro Bikini with fitted mesh designed to fit this body.

Note: This body will NOT fit standard sizes. Please try the demo available in the store!

Physique, Visage, Avatar Enhancements Update @ Slink

The Slink Physique Female body, Hands, Feet and Visage Heads have all been updated today. The 2 major changes are tinting options, and Omega support! Please go to the Slink Store and hit up the redelivery terminals for your updates!!

PhysAd Large New

The Omega system is a universal applier system which allows you to use your Omega HUDs with the Slink Body system. Both Male and Female body systems are now able to use Omega. You need the Slink Omega Activator HUD from the Love -n- Lust Designs store, wear it, your Omega HUD and you’re set to go! Of course, Slink appliers still work!

Physique, Visage and the female hands and feet can now also be tinted. If you want to be purple, green, pastel pink, be my guest! It’s a lot of fun to play with the tinting options. You can tint the skin, tattoo layer, clothing and underwear layer, so if your tights aren’t quite right for you, you can now adjust them 🙂

I have also done a little update to the Physique Male body today, fixed a thing here and there! Nothing mandatory but if you have one, you can also get the update from the redelivery terminal.

Phys Male Ad Full

As with updates everywhere, please read the included update notes for what has changed.

Slink Physique and Slink Avatar Enhancement Personal HUD update!

I have just released an update to the Slink Physique female body – now available in the Slink Mainstore and redelivery terminals – simply request a redelivery of the Physique Mesh Body pack.  If you don’t see your body purchase in the redelivery terminal, drop an IM to Slink Resident inworld and she will sort your update out!

Featuring Slink 3rd Party Creators – Fri.Day , YS & YS, Cynful & Avanti

Audrey

Fri.day has filled its store with an incredible selection of Slink compatible footwear, from flats to high heels and the styles in between. Lately even creating some Physique compatible boots. We are looking forward to them expanding their range in the future, and toes crossed they will go into clothing as well.

YS & YS have created a broad range of skins for the Physique wearers and the Visage head wearers. The difference on Emma and Becky when worn is a lovely mix of looks, and the great range of make ups and hair bases included, make them a skin store to check out if on the look out for complete appliers coverage.

Cynful is new to appliers for Slink items, and their first release is just the start of some great basics. These jeans are great for wearing as shown, or slipping into your favourite winter boots. Appliers clothing will give you the much needed options for layering styles and incorporating them with mesh or other accessories.

Avanti created this layered look top as just one of their physique appliers available. As mentioned, layering your appliers with mesh items, can give you a wider range of looks, so don’t hesitate on building your appliers inventory.
