FLASH! More on the Meshed Up Starter Experience

This just gets worse and worse.  I just discovered that all of the "starter avatars" that are in the inventory folder Library/Clothing/Initial Outfits are No Modify.  If you go into Appearance mode, you can't save the results as an Outfit, or save the shape, or use it as a starting point for creating your own shape.  The "Save" option is grayed out.  This is true not only of the new Mesh avatars, but ALL the starter avatars.

In their attempt to insulate newcomers from all possibility of making mistakes, Linden Lab is making it very difficult to enjoy the wonders of Second Life these days.

My advice is to find some freebie stores and stock up.  Then ditch the starter avatar as soon as you can and have fun learning how to play dress-up, SL style (and get frustrated, if that's what it takes.)

  1. It will be corrected, atl least by Ebbe words all will be full mod.
    And the zombies and the werewolf are pretty good.
    The problem is that SL Go cant se fitted mesh and many also use viewers that cant see it either, making reg sl users mute/block those newbies that come on the new avatars:(
