HUDDLES Catwalk

Sunday, January 18th, 2009

The HUDDLES Catwalk HUD was designed by Luth Brodie (of Reel Expression) and I. It is the first of many icow collab projects. For now, it is available only at the ICOW Sim.

It is combination walk replacer and posing HUD specifically designed for use in fashion shows in Second Life. It gives you an easy way to walk down the runway and strike a few poses and comes with a number of poses built in.

At a minimum, your HUDDLES Catwalk will come with four separate stands, which correspond to the four buttons with arrows. These buttons are for:

  • first pose – this is the up arrow (or forward arrow) button. This is the first pose that automatically plays whenever you stop walking.
  • left pose & right pose – these are the left and right arrows on either side of the HUD. They are typically poses that face a bit to the left or right.
  • over shoulder pose – this has the curved u-turn style arrow on the button. This pose typically will have a pose suitable for hitting when you are walking back from the front of the stage.
  • other poses – if you have added more poses (or you bought a preloaded set with extra poses) you will see numbered buttons, up to 12. You can play any of these poses by clicking on them.

Available Sets:
There are currently 4 sets available. More will be added soon.
One of four sets released today

Detach Bug is fixed

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

It appears that there is a fix for the Detach Bug that has plagued so many people this past year. It will probably take some time before it actually gets into the release build of the client. Still it’s good news to know this will soon be fixed.

Qarl Linden posted this on the jira:

sorry for all the grief. should be fixed when maint-viewer-12 reaches RC. until then, try to avoid copying worn objects, and wearing objects directly from the ground.
