Time has gotten away from me again and I haven’t been able to spend as much time in SL as I had hoped. I need to carve out some time just so I can play around with the new BakesOnMesh stuff.
I did see that Maitreya had some sort of update, so I logged in quickly last night to pick it up before it disappeared from notices.
It’s not a new body updated for BoM as I had hoped, but a relay that will allow Maitreya body owners to use BoM with the current body (I think?). I’m still waiting to hear about a Firestorm update for BoM, but since they just issued an update recently, it may be a while.
Which means if I want to play around with BoM, I will have to use the (gasp of horror) official LL viewer. Honestly, I’m sure the official viewer is great. It’s just that I’ve used Firestorm for so long that using the LL viewer is nothing but an exercise in frustration for me, because nothing is where my brain thinks it is! 😛
After reading the post on the Maitreya blog about the relay and the likelihood of an update soon (read: not likely), I may actually go and purchase one of the SLink bodies, because a BoM update for it has already been released. I already own SLink hands and feet, so I can purchase the body, get the BoM update for all of it (I think) and be on my merry way.
The hitch in that plan is that I’ve deleted from my inventory any SLink mesh items I’ve bought in the last several years. 😦 I still have my SLink shoes (because – shoes!), but most mesh clothing items made for bodies other than Maitreya went in the trash bin. I may have original purchase boxes that I can dig out and rescue, but I’m not even sure about that.
I am sure that I have a ton of boxed system skins, tattoos, and clothing layers, so I may be doing some digging through storage anyway to locate those. We’ll see how much free time I can carve out this weekend to do just that.
