Cloud Party Marketplace Grows -- With Alternative Avatars!
Cloud Party is now offering user-created alternative avatars in its Marketplace, which launched in Beta less than a month ago. In that short time, there's been a pretty impressive growth of user-made content (still given away for free), including this purple alien and tribute to Wall-E. Shortly after this screenshot was taken, I selected an aviary avatar that I just acquired, and gave these players the bird.
To get an avatar like this, go to Cloud Party's Marketplace, click the drop-down menu labled "All", and scroll down to Alternative Avatars. A helpful Cloud Party user named "Real Burger" (yes), told me how to put the avatar on from there:
"In Outfit Creator you have a Type icon in the upper left where you can choose male or female, and if you have a new avatar ('costume types' actually), you should see them here." The UI is still somewhat counter-intuitive, but the whole marketplace/usage process is already way, way, way easier than it is in Second Life. And there's a lot more than alternate avatars in the store. Since the monetization options haven't been turned on yet, everything in the Market is free -- so why not check out, and tell me about other cool content you find there.
Much thanks to Joja Dhara for the tip and additional help!Tweet
