Maitreya v5 Update

Body Weight and ACI

These numbers were taken using Firestorm 6.3.2 using the demo versions of Maitreya Lara. I took the individual ACI part values from the Appearance Panel tab Wearing.

  • V3 = ACI 55,430 – avatar mostly nude with hair
  • V3 = Total Scripts: 7 Total Memory: 448k – body, feet, hands
  • V3 = Total Scripts: 9 Total Memory: 576k – body, feet, hands, HUD
  • Base Avatar = Total Scripts: 1 Total Memory: 64k
  • V3 Body Feet = ACI 2104
  • V3 Body Hand L & Right = ACI 1952 each
  • V3 Body = ACI 4898
  • V3 Parts ACI Total: 11006

I don’t have a V4 to test with… 🙁

  • V5 = CI 50,046 – avatar mostly nude with hair
  • V5 = Total Scripts: 5 – Total Memory: 224k – body-feet-hands (single attachment)
  • V5 = Total Scripts: 10 Total Memory: 496k – body-feet-hands (single attachment), HUD
  • Base Avatar = Total Scripts: 1 Total Memory: 64k
  • V5 Body w/feet and hands = ACI 5558
  • V5 Single Part Body, feet, hands ACI Total: 5558

From V3 to V5 there is about a 50% avatar complexity reduction. The script weight reduced a little, nothing significant but a help.

My Take…

In general, I like the Maitreya body. There are some super sexy clothes for it and many have made awesome shapes for it, way way sexy. It is popular and lots of clothes are made exclusively for it.

There are some things I don’t like. Those are in the realm of personal preference. The big one for me is how the shoulders/arm/body area works or for me doesn’t. Just too much of a bent straw look. I spent some time with the shape editor trying to get a better look in the shoulder-body area. I got something I COULD live with but nothing I really like.

Annoying Leg bump…

The inner thigh is annoying too. There is a bump and the direction of the inner leg changes in what to me is an annoying way. I couldn’t adjust it out. See the image.

The butt cheeks stick out to the sides. I like those tight muscular butts on women bodybuilders. The Maitreya Lara butt is too full for me. Adjusting it down to what sort of works for me presses the legs together. :/ Even with the butt as small as it will go, it is too big for my taste.

I prefer a 5-10 height (1.82m). I suspect that is short for this body. When I add 7” (0.18m) the body looks better, slimmer and more like what one sees in the sexy ads. I would likely have to go with a giant female (6-8) to get the look I like.

Even with what I consider flaws this is a beautiful body. From all I can see it is well made and has most of the features one would want. I think the v5 improvements make it a good choice for those moving up to BoM.

  1. “What is missing from Maitreya is Slink’s Shirt Stretch, Smooth Panties, and Smooth Bottom. In Slink these are HUD clicks. They are used to get a shirt to stand away from your breast bone and remove the camel’s toe.”

    That’s what the “BoM Add-On Parts” attachment does.

  2. I haven’t played around with the BOM stuff much in the add 5 update, only really experimented using the BOM relay in 4.1 but from what I gather with the applier clothes to not look like they stick to the skin , stand away from breast and remove camel toe etc…that feature is explained around the 20 minute mark in Naria’s video.

  4. Are you able to advise whether V5 Maitreya is ‘doing a Legacy’ and using a weird server situation for the body?

    The reason I ask is because the V5 HUD is often painfully slow to load anything when changing skins from applier to BOM and back again (or both at the same time as the case may be), which I often have to do several times a day while juggling an assortment of bento heads.

    Normally it’s not too bad, but today it was being a pill with applier skins until I was forced to give up and return to a full body BOM skin.

    Why would V5 be unresponsive if it wasn’t server reliant the way Legacy is?

    Try as I might, I don’t recall this occurring with the previous version?

    • AFAIK, Maitreya doesn’t to an external server thing. Legacy and other merchants (Casper) run external servers which are not associated with Linden Lab. They may be on Amazon or Go Daddy.

      The slow change between an applier and BoM is NOT a Maitreya thing. That is a BoM thing. My Slink body has the same delay. You can see it is separate when adding a system tattoo or alpha layer. The body will go grey as the textures are sent to the bake engine (an SL server) and the viewer waits for a composite texture to be returned. The delay is in the Linden system.

      That an applier skin is being slow is likely in your connection or delays in the region. An applier skin only has to download from the asset system so it should be as quick to render as any other texture.

      Any ‘body,’ applier or not, will be slow to rez if the region, asset system, your network, and/or your viewer is lagging.

      The delays are not Maitreya version dependent. The tech the v5 depends on is old except for the BoM addition and SL has used server-side bake for the classic avatar for years now. So, the problem is NOT in Maitreya. Don’t confuse the apparent correlation with actual causation.

      • Thanks for explaining, Nalates.

        It’s only that these delays weren’t an issue with BOM/applier skins and alphas on the V4 Maitreya HUD – only with V5 – so we’re just trying to understand what’s changed (aside from the V5 HUD having a bit more functionality included).
