A New Viewer Character Avatar

The Character folder in our viewers is creaky, poorly documented and needs an overhaul. I’ve been making new topologies, researching and repairing the xml files, redesigning tga files. Chief collaborator: Kayaker Magic, who is working with the llm format. This is a work-in-progress, entirely built in opensource software and intended to be released soon as an open source tool for future developers and artists. Ready to show how far we’ve gotten, and what’s left to do.

    After 4 decades of writing code in the Real World, Kayaker Magic has been scripting in virtual worlds since 2008. By taking apart items made by Arcadia Asylum, Kayaker learned a great deal about building vehicles in OpenSim, animating, 3D modeling, UV mapping, texture mapping and efficient mesh. He wants to preserve Arcadia’s work so others can learn these lessons as well.
