This is the first vagina I have seen advertised as BoM ready. I think that is sort of misleading in this case. The HUD suggests that reality too. The Labia Majora is excluded as it should be colored by BOM. At first, I couldn’t get that to work with the demo. I thought I was probably missing something as these are sold as different skin tones and promoted as BOM… (WTH?) How is that?
This vagina is interesting enough I contacted the designer and provided my first draft of the review. I got feedback and now think I understand why this model is as it is.
BOM is going to add a complication for those designing vaginas. The UV Map in the crotch of the Classic avatar and most mesh avatars leaves a lot to be desired. Especially when a woman spreads her legs. Angi Manners (anj4) the designer of Session products decided to solve that problem by not using third-party skin on the vagina. No BoM. Doing so makes for just too few pixels in the area. Instead, she chose to use a custom Hi-Rez 1024×1024 texture and materials with a custom UV Map. Otherwise, this part of the avatar would be very low-rez… basically fuzzy and not in a good way. Continue reading →
In 2013-16 there were a fair number of people that knew how to RP with Xcite! So, getting the addon lips, nipples, butt, thighs, feet, etc. was worthwhile. Younger residents don’t seem to have a clue.
These days almost no one knows how to use Xcite! For that matter, few know how to do much of anything or even know to know to click to find out what they can do. Sad. So, with mesh bodies that provide 3D nipples and other features, which formerly came only as genital accessories the use of separate accessories is not as important. Most people don’t even understand RLV. So… wearing Xcite! for any more than visual reasons… doesn’t work out.
Scripts for vagina (6,784KB), nips (4,608KB), ears (384KB), butt (192KB), lips (192KB), and thighs (416KB) with HUD (1,920KB) and DropBox (192KB) = 14,688KB …and that 14MB is why people avoid Xcite! these days.
I couldn’t find a demo. Contacting the designer, I find he is afraid someone will still his textures from a demo. Duh! So, no demos. Anyone that wants them can steal the mesh and textures by being close to anyone wearing a VAW vagina. From my viewpoint that is losing a lot of sales for no good reason.
The vagina is boxed. Open the box and you get a folder with all the parts and some scripts. Of course, some promo material and a manual are included.
The rigged Bento version is available in only 4 sizes (Sept 2019), Freya, Isis, Hourglass, and Maitreya. The Hourglass works OK, not perfect, on Physique-Original. But none of that information is in the promo material. Continue reading →
Unpack the demo and add the Pro Bento VaJayJay v2.3 – DEMO and one of the two HUDs, main and mini.
I thought, for a time, this was the ultimate in vaginas… as far as Bento and rigged mesh go. Also, it is probably the most realistic. But, not necessarily the best choice or most practical nor anatomically correct… position-wise.
What is realistic are the lips and the internal vagina. The lips are as we expect with the inner labia slightly extending past the outer labia. The vagina is a cave-like model being a bit of a tube inside the avatar. Unfortunately for the guys, it is an RL proportionately sized vagina. I mean those elephant-trunk-sized penises are NOT going to fit. Continue reading →
