I really hate the idea of compensating for the manifest and glaring weaknesses of the default model through expensive third-party add-ons.

But... grrrrrr... some, some PERSON did such a good job with the ones I saw over the weekend that I might have to relent.

Damn you and your talent, person.

That is a very good and helpful tutorial, but I wouldn't get in too big of a hurry to clear your cache unless everything else you've tried isn't working. You should always manually clear cache, because hitting the button in the preferences will take a long time and bog everything down.
The Firestorm wiki is a great source of information (even if you don't use Firestorm) : http://wiki.phoenixviewer.com/cache?s[]=clear&s[]=cache

Oh good, an Alaska tutorial. I consider her, alongside Celebrity, Sabrina, and Salome (and others), one of my fashion mentors in SL. I learned a lot from her..and my shape is a modded version of one of her freebie shapes.


Actually I hate having to rely on add-ons too, but I caved in.


yeah a cache clear should be a last resort, after you've tried a quiet region, and tried a viewer restart. I'd also suggest upping the cache to 1024MB instead of the standard 512.

Alaska did a great guide on "looking pretty" in SL, can't remember if it covers mesh:

I've been replacing the default human with furries for so long I don't understand why people have an issue doing it with human body parts.

Either way I've seen two male ones so far. I liked the hands on one and the face on the other. Easy enough to use both with a long sleeve shirt.
