Monday Slink began releasing their BoM items. People were getting messages/notecards about how to update some of the Slink stuff they owned. People were posting in the Slink Classy Gear group with questions about the notice they got and others were like ‘whaaa?’ me being one…
So, I asked if they were releasing their BoM updates and was told yes but not yet official. Since I am kinda known at Slink as a blogger that likes Slink Stuff and have bought a bunch and use the Dev-Kit for some stuff I make… I quickly got three update packages.
I strongly suggest you NOT delete ANY of your existing Slink stuff. There is some of the animation stuff that is not included in this new package and maybe some other stuff. I think it is the animation HUD for hands that I did not see in the new stuff.
As of Tuesday, Slink put up a Slink Redux FAQ page on their Slink Style web page. This should answer most of your questions.
This update is labeled Redux v4.0.0. The first bundle in the pack is the Slink Physique Original Bundle. When unpacked it drops 9 folders into your inventory. One is titled Slink – Physique Classic Mesh Body Original. In it is a notecard saying,
“To access the previous versions of the Slink Physique Body parts, wear and unpack the “Slink Physique Hourglass Bundle (Classic)” unpacker HUD in this folder.”
Translated, here Siddean Munro is using “classic” in a way I suspect will be confusing. I would write it Classic Physique… But you get the idea Siddean means the current onion skin Physique body v3.0.8. To continue…
You will receive a number of properly named folders with the items inside.
These body parts use appliers exclusively, and will not be updated to Bakes on Mesh.
They will be available until the 1st of September, 2020, in this unpacker to allow you plenty of time to make the transition to Bakes on Mesh.
We recommend updating your outfits and folders to use the REDUX version as soon as possible.”
OK, neat. No forced conversion. The available until 2020 means sales and support will end then. The body and parts will continue to work after that date. This is all about the latest version of the body we have been using.
Also, this update updates us all (some limts) to the DELUXE version of the hands and feet. Awesome.
This is the last update to the current ‘Classic’ Physique onion skin body.
If you are wondering if you get an upgrade or need to buy one, consider this from the FAQ page.
If you own hands, deluxe feet or 4 or more of the single feet, and any of the bodies, you can request a like-for-like upgrade to a bundle, by sending a message with your avatar name and a list of the Slink body part items you own inworld to Slink Resident. You will receive a bundle that contains the same body that you own. There are advantages to the bundles that weren’t included in the separate packs that are worth converting for! An all in one attachment for body, hands and feet being one of them.
