The PsiCorp Cobra Avatar has seen a re-release in 2017, reworking it from the ground up to take advantage of both the latest technology offered by SL, as well as to benefit from our increased experience in creating avatars.
As such, it utilizes materials, fitted mesh, and the new Bento skeleton features for animated fingers, tails, and facial expressions. Because of this, you will need to use a viewer supporting these features, such as the latest official viewer or Firestorm. Other viewers are supported, as long as they properly support the aforementioned features.
This is also the first avatar to be sold as addon kit for our newly released Avatar Core suite of mesh bodies, as such, ownership of one of these bodies is required for this avatar to function.
The exception to this rule is if you own a copy of the first release of this avatar, in which case your redelivery will include a "light" version of the male & female mesh bodies, which are slimmed-down versions lacking clothing layers & omega support, to allow you to continue wearing a full, functioning avatar without the need for extra purchases.
Every box should include the following items. If any are found to be missing, please contact customer support.
- Male & Female versions of the following:
- Wide Tail
- Slim Tail
- Left & Right Hands
- Avatar HUD
- Avatar Texture Applier
- Avatar Alpha Mask
- Left & Right Eye
- Breast Physics
- Manual Notecard
- Extras folder containing the following:
- Custom Texture Applier
- Voice Gestures for Talkjaw
A note on the applier
Please note that the included texture applier is intended solely to apply textures to the Avatar Core mesh bodies as well as the included cobra body parts. Attempting to apply to any other parts will yield unpredictable results and is not intended.
