It is with great pleasure and excitment that I am announcing the beginning of a new era for INSOLENCE products , introducing the first Mesh Boots of a new range to come.
I have been waiting for Linden Labs to allow us to use that technology for YEARS, and today is the day when I finally begin to use them.
Mesh clothes are still in a bit rough state, and there are a few caveats we must live with until someone ( Qarl Fizz, to name him ) fixes everything for our best pleasure. I will talk of this in detail at the end of this note . But yet they are a GIANT step ahead in terms of visual quality, and of course I eagerly wanted to take advantage of this for the INSOLENCE line !
Let me introduce the new boots :
The Nina Boots are straight in the INSOLENCE spirit regarding crafting quality and intemporality of the design.
Lines were drawn as the most simple evidence, pure elegance from the heel to the top tight fit. The finest leather grain, together with carefully hand made sewing and detailing, wrap the leg with absolute class and sexyness.
Tones are as following :
Thank you very much for having followed this notecard so far, and if you are impatient and want to go directly to the hot spot, please follow this link !
INSOLENCE Updates Group Members can get the shoes at a special price during the release time ! Joining the group is free and easy ! Just look in my profile to find it.
Now for more details about mesh clothing ...
Please note that in order to fully enjoy these shoes, you will have to meet a few conditions :
1 ) First you need a MESH ENABLED viewer, of course.
At the time of writing this note, one can use either the official SL 3.1 Viewer, or the 3.0.1 Beta Firestorm Viewer. There may be others that I am not aware of, and there will certainly be more options in the future.
2 ) Then your shape has to be somewhat close to the one I used to create the boots.
I included three sizes for the boots, so you should be able to wear them with quite a range of usual leg shapes.
PLEASE DO USE the DEMOS before purchasing the shoes to make sure they will fit you !
Your "Knee Angle" leg setting MUST BE the default 50.
So far we do not have a way to have our attachments automatically adjust to our shapes, but thanks to the hard work by Qarl Fizz, this shouldn't be an issue in some future.
3 ) You must wear the shoe base, so that your feet do not go through the ground.
4 ) You must wear one of the 2 provided Alpha layers, so that parts of your body do not show through the boots. Experiment which length fits the best in your case.
I included the Alpha textures as full perm, so you can edit them at your will and include them in your own alphas. This way you can mix them with other alphas, if the creator gave you the textures too. This is useful if you plan to wear the boots together with another mesh clothing item. I urge every designers to do the same for the pleasure of everyone !
I hope you will enjoy the boots and fully take advantage of the new possibilities that mesh clothings offers to us !
Stay tuned for other new great releases at INSOLENCE !
with all my best thoughts,
