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.

  • 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!

Updates and remakes @ Slink

I originally made these boots in 2011 before standard sizing. They were one of the first mesh creations I added to Slink and I loved them very much!

Well now it’s 2015 and I have a beautiful mesh body that was crying out for gorgeous thigh boots. I’ve been wanting to update these for Physique for some time, and I finally got time this week and here they are!

I have also created 24 all new, lovely colours and textures for them, (and updated them for materials support), in both soft leather and shiny, shiny vinyl!  Available now in the Slink Mainstore!

I have retired the original boots. However, if you previously purchased them and you’d like Physique compatible versions, I have updated them – just get a redelivery in the store for free!

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.

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!

The Physique Mesh Body Kit Beta

I am pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for the Beta version of the Physique Body Mesh Creators Kit : Slink Developers Information

Phys Body Kit

This body kit contains everything you need to make fitted mesh creations around the Physique Body, including a body template, a texture showing the designated alpha zones and a hand and foot guide for creations that include those extremities.

You will be able to create anything from mesh pants, to body jewellery that moves realistically with mesh physics in SL. This kit provides you with a shape guide to build around, and a fitted mesh guide to the Physique weights.

Please note, if you have previously been approved for a mesh creators kit, you will need to send in another application for this one.  This way I can keep track of exactly who has it, and who will need updates when they are released.

This is a BETA kit. As such, it may change in the future, if I find the need to adjust the shape or weighting of the body, which may require you to update your garments. For now, because of the BETA status of this kit, it is not yet available to fullperm creators.

Physique Update, and a new dress for her!

New at the Slink Mainstore this week! After a lot of great feedback and work, I have released the next version of the Slink Physique mesh body. The current version is 1.4. If you don’t have it, I highly recommend dropping by Slink and getting your pack redelivered. The new body has a few very nice new features, and resolves some of the issues experienced by users of the previous version.  Please read the update notes for full information about what is new and changed in this version.

Also this week, I have released 7 more colours of the One Shoulder dress that is included in red with your Physique.  This dress is ONLY Physique compatible, and will not currently work with the SL avatar body.  Please try on the free demo 🙂

Updates- Visage work in progress and Physique teasers!

I’ve received a lot of feedback on my Visage release since early March, the majority has been overwhelmingly positive! I’ve been taking notes, and I’m trying to incorporate as much of the feedback into the next update as possible 🙂

I’ve been busy these last few weeks with the updates for Emma and Becky before I can start releasing new faces.  Unfortunately, my main Visage file became corrupted and I lost much of the work I had previously done on Becky, so I’ve had to repair her from earlier backups which has taken a lot of time, but I’m on the home stretch now so hopefully updates will be out very soon!

Visage Updates

In the update I have tweaked the eyes of both ladies, given them new eyelashes, a new hairbase layer (made for SL texture hairbases), separate brow layers to make the lives of skin makers a little easier, and a layer for freckles/tattoos.  I am also looking into ways I can make the base Visage faces available for make-up creations because I know a lot of people want this option.  There are also new *exclusive to Visage* skins coming! woohoo!

In the meantime, Caine has been madly coding the personal kits, they are coming along great and should be available for Slink Avatar Enhancement products any day now!

In related news, I present a teaser for my upcoming project, Physique. You know what this is 😉  Enjoy this little sneak peek!

Slink Shoetopia Special Results

During the Shoetopia Event, I ran a promotion “Shoetopia Special“. With three polls run over different days during the two week event. Each poll was to determine which new colours would be created after the event, and added to the new line of high Footwear created for the new high Feet.

As a thank you for visiting the event, and especially for buying the donation item, everyone who bought the Demi, Hera and Priscilla shoes received at least one of the new colours for free.

Here’s how it worked:

  • If you bought one or more colours of a shoe: You receive the winning new colour for that shoe for free!
  • If you bought one or more colours of more than one shoe: You receive the winning new colour for each of the shoes you bought for free!
  • If you bought a fatpack of a shoe: You receive both the winning new colour and my personal pick for that shoe for free!
  • If you bought more than one fatpack: You receive both new colours for each of the shoes you bought a fatpack of for free!
  • If you bought one fatpack and a single colour of another shoe: You receive both new colours for the shoe you got a fatpack of, and the winning new colour for the other shoe, for free!
  • If you bought the donation item (Demi boot in blush): You receive both new colours of the Demi boot for free!

The Winning colours were voted upon, and a second colour selected by myself. I have now sent out the gifts, to all that purchased the new footwear from the Slink Booth at Shoetopia.

If you did not receive your gift items, and you did purchase Priscilla, Hera or Demi between the 15th and 30th of November, please contact Slink Resident in world via IM or Notecard, and your Gift can be resent.

The Winning Colours were based on Poll Winnings and Siddeans Choice.
