I’ve been following a couple of online threads recently about various viewer issues – things not rezzing, Winnie’s missing left eye, etc. 😛
Weird things catch my eye, and after seeing some screen shots of people’s issues, I saw several AO’s.
I use the Firestorm viewer and I also use the built-in AO.
I love it.
No attachments to fuss with and no remembering to put it in every outfit.
When I first heard about the built-in AO’s, I remember hearing that it would help cut down on lag.
I did a bit of searching around yesterday, but I can’t find any information on that.
The little I did find said that it might help a tad with lag, but that new scripts in newer AO’s are not a lag-inducing as they used to be.
I still see venues asking people to detach AO’s, so I wonder how lag-heavy AO’s are these days.
But then I started wondering – how many people use attached AO’s?
Are they better or worse than the built-in viewer AO’s?
Do people just use pre-built AO’s or do they modify them?
I personally have modified mine – removing stands and such that I didn’t care for (like the ones where you seem to be checking your shoes for something -.-).
I have changed the basic run into another one I like much better, etc.
Now if there was just a way to add an ankle lock animation into it – is that possible?
Does anyone have a home-grown AO – one that they cobbled together?
Attached or built-in?
What animation stores are favorites for AO animations?
If you use an attached AO, is there a reason you’ve made that choice over using a built-in AO?
I’m dying of curiosity over here!
