SHINE+TATTOO

New combo products with a tattoo level and a shine connected to it.

>>> Type of packs

For each product there will be different pack solutions, depending on the type of creation. Sometimes you’ll find only the shine+tattoo, cause for example the two levels work only combined together; other times you’ll find all the options cause for example the levels can be worn separately without losing the concept. In many new packs you will also find a 3D-effect HUD and BOM tattoo options!

GENERAL INFORMATIONS – MUST READ!

 

>>> What is a material shine?

A materials shine applier is like a tattoo, with the difference that it will shine if  illuminated with lights, like windlights from Second Life, wearable lights, facelights, spotlights etc. THIS IS WRONG provides two kinds of products: only shine and shines+tattoos. In the first case you will only see the shiny pattern in your skin, in the second case you will see the diffuse layer plus the shiny pattern.

 

>>> How do I see the effect?

MANDATORY:

1) To see the effect please activate Advanced Lighting Model in Preferences > General. The Ultra Graphic is NOT required, only the advanced lights

2) Activate the Omega Installer dedicated to your body (except Legacy and Maitreya)

 

TIPS:

1) Change the windlight sky to have the best effect (windlight recommended: Bryn Oh’s Immersiva Grey Dust or any other dark windlight). Like in real life, there must be contrast to see the shine!
2) Add the lights in the pack, or the moving lights you’ll find for FREE at the mainstore or inside your pack (horizontal and vertical).
3) If you struggle to see the shine, use a darker skin.
4) Adjust the glossiness of your shine via THIS IS WRONG HUD or your body HUD. The less gloss you use, the more you’ll see the “pattern” of the shine.
5) Make sure you have the last version of the body/head you are wearing. If you are not sure, make a redelivery.

 

>>> About Material layers and Omega products

For most of the shiny appliers we use Omega Solutions products, like Omega Advanced or Evolved.

http://slpoweredbyomega.com/omega-advanced-and-evolved-features/

Omega Advanced and Evolved is a new system from Omega Solutions which interfaces with the MATERIAL LAYER of mesh bodies, that is a different layer from the classic tattoo one. These features vary from mesh to mesh, some are still in the process of being implemented and some won’t be implemented in some meshes due to the limitations of the mesh or the API for that mesh. For this reason not all bodies are Omega Evolved ready, and we have to make different packs for each body.

In this link slpoweredbyomega.com/supported-meshes/ you can find a list of all bodies and heads supported by Omega Evolved, the only system that permits us to apply a shiny effect to our bodies and heads, so, for example, you can have your tattoo layer free to use for other purposes.

Omega Advanced applies the shine in the tattoo/clothing/underwear layer, like a normal tattoo.

So:

Omega Advanced: the shine goes in the tattoo layer

Omega Evolved: the shines goes in the dedicated material layer

 

>>> Which pack I choose for my body?

Slink / Belleza female and all bodies supported by Omega Evolved System ( slpoweredbyomega.com/supported-meshes/ ): BODIES SUPPORTED BY OMEGA EVOLVED VERSION PACK (material layer)

Maitreya: MAITREYA ONLY VERSION PACK (tattoo layer) Maitreya is not supported by Omega Advanced or Evolved so please DO NOT buy the Omega pack

Legacy (unisex) : LEGACY ONLY VERSION PACK (tattoo layer)

Sking Katena: SKING ONLY VERSION PACK (material layer)

Signature / Belleza Jake: MALE ONLY VERSION PACK (tattoo layer + material layer for Signature) (Omega Advanced and Evolved)

BBL: BBL ONLY VERSION PACK (tattoo layer)

In each pack you will find the HUD for your head too!

 

>>> And about my head?

In each pack you can find the HUDs for:

Lelutka Bento Head (Omega Advanced and Evolved)

Genus Bento Head (Omega Advanced and Evolved)

Catwa Bento Head (Check if your Catwa head has been updated for materials here: catwa-clip.com)

IMPORTANT: The Omega Evolved HUD for Lelutka and Genus works with every other head supported by Omega Evolved! slpoweredbyomega.com/supported-meshes/ Check this link to see if your head is supported!

 

>>> Tint

ALWAYS TINTABLE:

– The always-tintable HUD are: Legacy, Maitreya V5 and Omega (Advanced) HUD. The shine goes in the tattoo layer and from there you can tint it.

NOT TINTABLE:

Omega Evolved HUDs are not tintable, cause in the bodies HUD you can’t tint the material layer.

 

>>> Already colored shines

Some of the first shines are already colored: it means that they don’t start white like the newest ones, but the shiny effect has already a color, or multi colors. This option is only possible with Omega Evolved HUDs, so the “colorful” effect will be visible only for Omega Evolved friendly bodies like Slink, Belleza female and Signature.

 

>>> Wearing tattoos with shines

WITH OMEGA EVOLVED:

– When you are using the Omega Evolved version you can add the tattoo you prefer because the tattoo layer is not occupied by the shine. This is the case for bodies like Slink, Sking and Belleza female.

WITH ANY OTHER HUD:

– When you are using the Omega (Advanced) version, the shine will go in the tattoo layer so you can’t wear the tattoo and the shine at the same moment, unless the body allows it. Maitreya and Belleza Jake, for example, don’t allow the interaction between tattoos and shines. In Legacy you can play with this option, but sometimes the final effect of the tattoo is a “sticker effect” (you can see the borders of the tattoo), it depends by how they interact.
– For Signature, you have to use the “THIS IS WRONG Shine – Omega for Signature/Lelutka” or the Omega Evolved version, in that way you can use both shine and you favorite tattoo!

For solving the “sticker effect problem” we made a new collection of shines+tattoos, that works perfectly together! Check the top of this page to have a look!

 

>>> About Bake on Mesh (BOM)

Omega appliers and BOM: http://slpoweredbyomega.com/2018/04/about-bakes-on-mesh/ For material shines we can’t use the new BOM (bake on mesh) system cause the system only allows diffuse textures.

Despite this, some bodies are creating a BRIDGE HUD that will permit to use materials on BOM bodies.

Here a recap board:

BOM

Slink

In Slink mainstore you can find the Slink Omega Bridge (for free) that allows you to use the shines on the new Slink body Redux (BOM).

1: wear the “Slink Omega Bridge for NAILS and MATERIALS – SLINK REDUX ONLY”,
2: wear the Slink Omega Kit from the Omega store (the classic Omega Installer for Slink)
3: Click the Omega kit item once, to “install” the Omega bridge attachment. You will receive a “thank you for installing Omega” message in local chat.
4: now you can wear THIS IS WRONG shine HUDs and see the shines!

Signature

The new body non-BOM and BOM is the same, you just switch them with one simple button in the Signature HUD and the shines work perfectly on both.

Belleza

The body is not updated for BOM, but they are selling for free a HUD that allows to use BOM products on the non-BOM body.

Maitreya

The body is not updated for BOM, but they are selling for free a HUD that allows to use BOM products on the non-BOM body.

Legacy

The body non-BOM and BOM is the same, and the BOM option is for skins and tattoos only. If you want to apply a BOM tattoo on the Legacy body go on STYLE menu and click on the three lines, then choose APPLY BOM, and wear the BOM tattoo from your inventory. Don’t forget to remove the alphas from your body. If you want to apply a shine, use the usual THIS IS WRONG shine HUD for Legacy (it will go in the usual 3rd layer of the body).

Lelutka

The new Lelutka BOM heads need a new HUD to make the shines work, we are updating them, and they will be available soon!

 

>>> Info Notecards & Support

Before buying please read the Info Notecards CAREFULLY! If you follow the instructions the shine will work, I spent a lot of time to be as exhaustive as possible to give you all the info, the tips and the indications to make it work. Sadly I can’t provide demos cause many bodies don’t allow me to do it. For this reason is very important to read everything!

I prepared a TESTER AREA with a sample shine to wear and try with different settings, LM here: http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Infinite%20Spirit/95/87/1101 and click on “GO TO TESTER AREA” @ landing point or in the Shine area!

If you have any doubt before buying, please send me a notecard, I’m here to help! Check if your body/head is materials-compatible. If you are not sure your body/head/add-on supports material shines, please contact the creator of the product and ask for news.

I will not refund anything except for double payment. The rule is: if you don’t read before, I won’t refund after 😛

 

>>> Variables

Very important information: if you see the shines different from my AD, it is because 1) I wear a different skin 2) I use different windlights 3) I use different lights 4) I wear a different body, etc. It is very logical, like for any other SL product, that we have different avatars and we are using different products, so the final effect could be different. All these variables are understandable by intelligent people. “Not as advertised” is non-sense, in all my AD I use my products with a very low dose of post-production and not on the shine/tattoo part. If you want to have info about what I wear in my ADs or how I make the vendor pics, please contact me, I’m happy to help!

>>> Other mesh products

We are responsible only for the compatibility of the bodies and heads listed in this page. If you have a body not listed here, please make sure it is compatible with our products by asking to the creator of your body/head.

 

 

BODIES & HEADS RECAP

 

BODIES SUPPORTED BY OMEGA EVOLVED & ADVANCED

OMEGA ADVANCED HUD is the one with two buttons, one for upper tattoo and one for lower tattoo.

OMEGA EVOLVED HUD:

– Add THIS IS WRONG HUD and apply
– Your skin will disappear, but don’t worry, apply your skin again and you’ll see both shine and your skin!

HEADS WITH MATERIALS OPTIONS

Catwa:

1) IMPORTANT: Don’t forget to update your Catwa head (from 4.0), and to activate the materials in Catwa HUD: Alpha/Lashes/Tint/NeckSize > Materials.

2) Click on THIS IS WRONG HUD

3) If you don’t see the shine click on the glossiness bar, from there you can play with this parameter to have the best effect for you!

 

BODIES SUPPORTED ONLY BY OMEGA ADVANCED

Belleza Jake:

– THIS IS WRONG Materials Shine HUD for this body is created with Omega Advanced, cause the new Omega Evolved System does not work with Belleza Jake. The material effect will go in the tattoo layer, instead of being added in the dedicated materials layer, as the evolved mesh bodies do.

– Be sure to have the tattoo layer and the materials activated and no other clothing/underwear layer.

– You can also play with glossiness and environment setting in THIS IS WRONG HUD. Pick your favorite color from Belleza Jake palette.

 

BODIES WITH MATERIAL OPTIONS

Maitreya V5:

– Wear Maitreya Lara V5
– Add Maitreya Lara V5.0 Tattoo Layer
– Click Layers Tab
– Click Advanced button

LAYER button + tint panel:
– It changes the color of the shine/tattoo

GLOSSINESS button + tint panel:
– It changes the color of the glossiness

ADVANCED MATERIALS:
Here you can choose if you want:
– to keep the shine/tattoo as bought by leaving the two button (bump and spec) activated
– to keep only the 3D effect of the shine/tattoo by deactivating the spec map button
– to keep only the shiny effect of the shine/tattoo by deactivating the bump map button

GLOSSINESS/INTENSITY/ENVIRONMENT:
Here you can adjust the quantity of shine/tattoo in your skin. I recommend to use only glossiness and intensity and keep environment to zero.

– !!! Always use the tattoo layer for shine/tattoos

Changes from Maitreya V4.1 to V5:

– Now you can tint the shine/tattoo
– You can choose if you want only the glossy component or only the 3D component of the shine/tattoo
– You can take off sections of the shine/tattoo

OMEGA EVOLVED AND ADVANCED: Maitreya Lara V5 is not supported by Omega Evolved or Advanced so, as always, buy the Maitreya-only pack or, in case of shine+tattoo products, the usual female pack

 

Legacy:

– Legacy mesh body is not supported by Omega of any kind.
When you apply the shine, it will go in the third layer (third eye from left in the Legacy HUD).

– You can also tint the shine using the Advanced Material Editor HUD (in your Legacy body folder), choose the third layer and use the palette box!

IMPORTANT: If the shine or tattoo HUD gives you “Legacy: Failed. Please try again“, it’s because the Legacy HUD is very heavy and it has many scripts, and it collides with other HUDs. The technical problem is this: “– Script run-time error: Stack-Heap Collision“, and it happens because you are wearing too many scripts. Remove all the HUDs you don’t need and wear only the Legacy HUD + THIS IS WRONG HUD. It will work. (According to Legacy team, the script issue “Legacy: Failed. Please try again” has been fixed – October 2019)

 


 

FAQ

1. I don’t see the effect, what do I do?

– To see the effect please activate Advanced Lighting Model in Preferences > General
– Change the windlight sky to have the best effect. You can use dark windlights: like in real life, there must be contrast to see the shines (I personally use Bryn Oh’s Immersiva Grey Dust).
– Add the lights in the pack to see the effect or the moving lights available for free at the mainstore.
– Make sure you have the last version of the body you are wearing. If you are not sure, make a redelivery.
– Before using an Omega HUD you have to activate the Omega Installer dedicated to your body.

2. Why different packs for the bodies?

These new shines are very tricky and it’s news for everyone, they also work in a very different way from body to body. For these reasons we decided, for now, to sell one pack for every body, for not creating confusion in the customer, and because the instruction notecard changes a lot from body to body. We hope, in the future, that all the bodies will be omega-evolved-friendly so we can have the same effect in every body and sell just one pack!

3. I own a Maitreya body, which one I choose?

Choose only the Maitreya pack, not the Omega pack. Omega is only meant for Omega-Evolved-friendly bodies, like Slink and Belleza female. The head hud works with all the heads that have a tattoo layer. Catwa has a different HUD, you can find it in the pack or at mainstore sold for free.

4. I’m wearing the shine on Maitreya but I don’t see the effect

Wear Maitreya Mesh Body – Lara V5.0 Tattoo Layer and play with Glossiness and Intensity on Layers > Advanced in Maitreya hud.

5. I own a Slink/ Belleza female body, which one I choose?

Choose the pack: “Bodies supported by Omega Evolved version”. The head hud works with all heads supported by Omega Evolved System: http://slpoweredbyomega.com/supported-meshes/ (Lelutka and Genus). Catwa has a different HUD, you can find it in the pack or at mainstore sold for free.

6. I own a Legacy (male or female) body, which pack I choose?

Choose only the Legacy pack version. The head hud works with all the heads that have a tattoo layer. Catwa has a different HUD, you can find it in the pack or at mainstore sold for free.

7. Why the shine does not go in the first layer of Legacy body?

In theory the first layer (first eye) of Legacy body is meant for materials-only effects. However, we try to put the shine there and the result was horrible, so we were forced to use the tattoo layer (third eye) to make it work.

8. I own a Signature/Belleza Jake body, which pack I choose?

Choose only the Male pack version. he head hud works with all the heads that have a tattoo layer. In many packs you will also find a Signature/Lelutka only-materials layer version. Catwa has a different HUD, you can find it in the pack or at mainstore sold for free.

9. My shine HUD is not working, what do I do?

Please make a redelivery at the mainstore or try to apply it in a low-lag sim.

10. When I wear the shine in my Slink body the skin disappears, what can I do?

Add THIS IS WRONG HUD and apply, your skin will disappear, but don’t worry, apply your skin again and you’ll see both shine and your skin. This method does not work if you are wearing an omega skin, cause the shine goes in the same layer of the skin. Use a non-omega skin to use the shine!

11. My Legacy HUD is not working, what can I do?

(According to Legacy team, the script issue “Legacy: Failed. Please try again” has been fixed – October 2019)

If the shine or tattoo HUD gives you “Legacy: Failed. Please try again“, it’s because the Legacy HUD is very heavy and it has many scripts, and it collides with other HUDs. Even if the Legacy HUD won’t let you know which is the problem, the real problem is this: “– Script run-time error: Stack-Heap Collision“, and it’s because you are wearing too many scripts. Remove all the HUDs you don’t need and wear only the Legacy HUD + THIS IS WRONG HUD.

If this is not working, make sure that your skin is not covering the third layer (the shine layer). You can make a reset of the body (in Legacy HUD) and try again to apply the shine, just to be sure.

Sometimes a change of SIM will help.

If this does not work, please contact the Legacy designers, telling them you are trying to apply a tattoo/shine in the third eye/layer and it’s not working.

 

THIS IS WRONG SUPPORT

The shines work in every body described here, it’s just a little bit tricky method for now, and we all have to be patient, so please do not harass me or threaten me! If you want help, I assure you this is not the right way!
