Of course the users will always want to improve upon the basic avatars in any virtual world. SL is still in existence only because of this.
But the creators of the world should show some kind of sign that they understand this basic need for a decent looking avatar, or that they have at least looked at the evolution of their own product, by creating something reasonably desirable. Could someone now please relieve this poor virtual lady of the need to wear my great grandmothers dress. Of course it could be that I am so far behind fashion wise that my granny's dress is back in fashion


If they could extend that Avatar 2.0 head editor (good job there) to the rest of the body...
A complete release would take more time, but this way of releasing half-baked releases is troublesome: it's lacking, then the users manage to create a workaround; eventually LL would release an updated and more complete version, but at that point the workaround could be more or less established already.
In this case probably it won't be a big deal, but maybe you won't to go thorough their cumbersome and "wait please..." dressing system again, while in any modern game you change outfit with just a click.

Meanwhile, this and the Nexus didn't change the situation. Their concurrency remains flat dead. They try events as a defibrillator, a tiny spike arises, then it goes flat again. This thing is still in coma after over 2 years now. Funnily, VRChat began to take off about a month after Sansar was released to the public. Sansar instead never moved an inch.


Cool is of course a very subjective word. It is another of those hijacked words that once had a well defined meaning until those without the ability to create new words commandeered it. Although I must say that when a hippy used to say "cool man" it had a weight that is lost now.

I still prefer the Natalie Portman "Where the Heart Is" verson to the Thelma Harper "Mama's Family" version.


I don't know, left looks like a malnourished 11 year old and right looks like a healthy woman. I would not go so far as to say she's Kim Kardashian-esque.


When did curves and different body shapes etc. only become associated with the Kardashians? There are millions of people who had curved
S before the Kardashians and side note - we didn't use plastic surgery to get that body type.
