Kinda my job. I have been apart of IMVU since 2006 and have had the pleasure to watch it grow and mature to what it is today. I don't think I will ever completely stop developing for them, though I do take breaks more often than the average developer for life related stuffs. Here is a link to my catalog.

For those of you unfamilar to IMVU, it is an online 3D chat program. Essentially you have paper dolls (your avatar) for your computer where your paper doll can have conversations with other people's paper dolls. It is free to use, but if you want to upgrade your avatar and run out of starter credits, you'll have to poney up some doe. Yes, people actually pay money for this stuff. :P Read more at the IMVU ABOUT page.

Christmas Requests

Thanksgiving is just a couple days away and before long Christmas music will be playing non-stop on every single radio station. Finding the perfect gift becomes the number one priority on many peoples minds. Personalized and unique gifts are usually well received and I would like to give you another cheap option of giving that perfect gift.

I have been working on setting up a small shop on this site, but in the mean time I would still like to give you the opportunity to purchase something from me that I can print on my personal 3D printer for a fraction of the cost of buying if from Shapeways.

IMVU Tips and Tricks: How to Uncheck a Mesh ID

Now this little task sounds very simple and in theory it really should be, but this is just one of those annoying IMVU bugs that can really ruin your day.

Why would I want to uncheck a mesh ID you ask? Well, the mesh IDs are used to designate where your mesh will show up on the avatar or furniture or room. The avatar is made up of 10 basic mesh ID numbers that replace the different body parts. You can test them out by unclicking each one, then clicking "Apply Changes" to see which part disappears. For example, mesh ID 0 will cause the head to disappear and whatever mesh you are uploading will take that mesh ID spot. All meshes need to be placed in at least one mesh ID spot. The system is useful for when you want to put on a new body part. You apply a new head in client and the old one disappears. Otherwise you would have on 2 heads at the same time and that would look ridiculous. The mesh IDs for furniture and rooms are only important for that particular item. You have 99 IDs to work with and, unless you are making a very elaborate room, I doubt you'll come close to using all of the IDs up.

The only time mesh IDs are a pain in the patooty are when you are tying to apply an accessory item derived from clothing. When you make a clothing accessory item, you still have to choose a number between 11 and 99 for the mesh. Unfortunately with millions of products in the catalog, there is a pretty good chance that there will be a couple other products that use that same number and they will disappear as soon as your product is applied and visa versa.

IMVU Project: Frankenstein Candy Dish

First and foremost, HAPPY HALLOWEEN! This is most definitely my favorite holiday. I wanted to show you a project that I made for IMVUs free gift. Available if you log in today only. :)

 

The Frankenstein Candy Dish. Basically it's just Frankestein's monster sitting on the ground holding a bowl full of candy corn. There are a couple of sitting poses in the bowl with one eating the candy and a couple more sitting on the bowl's ledge. There are also a couple of animated standing spots just outside the bowl with avatars looking a bit frightened of the monster. Just like my last IMVU project, the idea belonged to IMVU, I just put it together and brought them what they asked for. Honestly, I think this little guy is kinda cute. So cute in fact that I decided to 3D print the thing to see how it would look in real life. I wasn't dissapointed. :D Below I have images of how the print evolved, starting with it in the printer with supports, ending with it fully painted. Enjoy!
