So I finally had a chance to log into Second Life from China to fully enjoy the new version of my avatar that Iris so helpfully and brilliantly made, and I came into the world like this, howling "My god woman what have you done to me?"
Though I kind of think the green pole like protrusion emanating from my waist will be a big hit with the ladies. (You're welcome.)
And then I calmed down and realized I was logging in with an old Imprudence pre-mesh viewer, which cannot render mesh, and makes it look like what you see above. As it happens, Imprudence is still the most stable viewer on my AlienWare. But now I must commit myself to a mesh-enabled viewer, lest I keep looking like a knobby and twisted mutation. So the cost of looking beautiful as Iris intended is a resource-taxing upgrade. But to all those who still use a pre-mesh Second Life viewer (and it's still a significant userbase, I believe), I need to remember as I talk to them that they are talking to a 3D cubist painting seemingly impaled by a striped jade dildo.Tweet
