OpenSim users can buy legal mesh bodies for their avatars — and the news has helped keep noted designer Linda Kellie from leaving.
“and I sat down the other day and made a pro and con list,” she wrote in a post yesterday. “And in the end one of the things we would miss by not being in Second Life was our mesh avatars. What can I say… we’re vain and like to be pretty.”
“Jessica and I each got one and had them delivered to our Metropolis avatars and played with them yesterday and today and it helped us to decide that OpenSim is the place we want to be,” Kellie wrote. “This mesh body does everything that the ones in Second Life do. It has some of the same perks and some of the same problems. But it is just as good as the Second Life ones and in some cases even better.”
Kellie said that she plans to make clothing to go with this avatar that she will give away free to OpenSim users, and has received the go-ahead from the creator who makes the mesh body.
