The Exmachina Davide Avatar has been updated yet again, albeit with a hiccup. First the 3.0 version was dropped in my inventory and I soon found out that there were problems with applying skins to it. Pretty soon version 3.01 landed safely at my feet and I could start unpacking again.
The avatar now comes with a free pair of shorts and a tank top, both with a 10-colour hud so you’re bound to find your favorite combination and look the part when you go for a workout at the gym… even if you are the only one there at 6 am. Finish off the look with a pair of sporty sneakers, like the ones from Semler I’m wearing.
Another great addition is the Alpha Wardrobe hud. With this you can safe alpha settings for specific clothing. You start this process by clicking the small Alpha Wardrobe hud BEFORE you put on the clothing and with no body parts hidden. Next you’ll be clicking the ADD button and go look for whatever you want to wear in your inventory, just like you would whenever you get dressed. I chose the George sweatpants by Etham and then gave the system a couple of seconds to figure out what on earth I was wearing and next I used the alpha tab in the body’s main hud to hide the bits of skin that were sticking through the fabric and once that was done I clicked the Confirm button. Now every time I put on these sweatpants, the Alpha Wardrobe hud will automatically hide the body parts as I defined them. Make sure you are still wearing the Alpha Wardrobe hud when you are saving your outfit. You can always remove it once you’ve changed from one outfit to another and it has done its job. I rather like this new gizmo. Clothing with auto alpha function such as you find for the Signature and Belleza bodies is of course even better, but while clothing support for the Exmachina body is still low, this is a great solution.
While I was at the recently changed Exmachina sim, I had a good look around and discovered that Gild have a small booth with a stylish pair of bikini briefs made for the Exmachina body. Finally! Some decent swimwear for this body!
Oh wait, but then I remembered that Legal Insanity updated their very bulgy Thor briefs to fit the Exmachina avatar… Is that a hammer or are you just happy to see me?
For the slightly less frisky among us, Legal Insanity also has a timid pair of shorts (a.k.a swim trunks) in some pretty flashy patterns. So with these three items to add to your wardrobe, things will be going swimmingly.
