To the newcomer, it's all confusing. I tried explaining meshes to a non-SLer and he said "they are ALL mesh, just different ones."

LL needs something like branding our older selves "Avatar 1.0" and "2.0" since, as I understand it, my gamer-geek friend is correct. We're all mesh.

It feels like they're solving a non-issue in order to address an actual issue.

They're making a system to determine if my avatar is wearing mesh or not... and for full mesh avatars to have a filter tag for items made for them.
- These are non issues in my opinion.

The actual issue comes down to 'how do I tell if this item will fit my avatar?'
- the issue that was solved by the 'Standard Sizes' concept, and which the 'fitted mesh' technology has tried and not exactly managed to address.

I'd also add that this looks like its a nonsolution to another issue: filtering MP search for or against mesh.

I think 90% of my searches on MP have exactly one word in the search bar: mesh.
- I search for that, and then filter down the categories...

I'd much prefer just having a 3-stage 'select' filter:

mesh only
exclude mesh.

- This thing of there's looks like it addresses that in concept, but not in execution.


The mesh filter or lack of is odd because when you list items on the marketplace, if you've met the mesh upload criteria you can tick boxes for 100% Mesh or partial mesh. Why there's no corresponding tick boxes for consumers is odd.

As for whether this new initiative to help consumers find suitable clothing works, only time will tell, it's certainly a good idea but time will prove whether the executions hits the mark.

"Why there's no corresponding tick boxes for consumers is odd."

It baffles me... I just guess they thought people would avoid mesh.

And some have. But others insist on it. So...
A filter would make both camps happy...

AND drive up sales for people both mesh and non-mesh...


I got nothing. Back to square one on that.

And I've now seen these icons on some products, but I missed any method to search for things by or against them.

This. We need a contemporary inventory UI that simplifies playing dress-up (and an option to bypass it when we want to get complicated).

Being able to easily customize your avatar is HUGELY important. Second Life's outdated inventory and avatar customization are major barriers to wider adoption of the platform.
