Second Life Avatar Physics Tutorial

Second Life Avatar Physics Tutorial

Last year I released a few physics layers on the marketplace for L$1. Since then I’ve received a wonderful response to them along with many questions on how to modify them. Today I was finally able to make a tutorial showing you guys how you can edit those layers, or create your own physics layer, if you like. I also showed you how to completely turn off physics in Second Life so you never have to see anyone bounce if you prefer!

Video Tutorial on Youtube: https://youtu.be/JQTvnYyoIf0

Some notes about the tutorial:

  • Firestorm Physics – All of the information I shared in the video tutorial above can be found on the Firestorm Physics Page written out in full detail and with even more information so I highly recommend you visit that page.
  • You can purchase my Physics layers on marketplace for L$1 at this link. These are made for female avatars only. I am not sure if they will work with other avatars.
  • In order for the physics to work properly with mesh clothing, you need to wear clothing that is rigged for the particular body you are wearing or your body parts will just fall out of the mesh clothing. I am wearing the Maitreya mesh body in the video with clothing that is specifically rigged for that body from Blueberry.

If you have any further questions about physics, feel free to leave a comment or email me and I’ll do my best to answer them if I can.

Happy bouncing! <3

Moving your own Avatar!

(this is a raw shot from sl) Yesterday I did a tutorial showing how you can move and position an avatar on a sim where you don’t have rez rights. The link to that is here: Moving Avatars. After I did that post, a few people on different social networks shared how you can move […] Continue reading →

Teach Me Something Meme!

Butterflyeyes3 Today I thought it would be a fun idea to do a meme where everyone can share a bit of their talents. Meme instructions: Blog a tutorial and teach me something that you think I might not know about (even if I do, doesn’t matter, do it anyways). The tutorial can be something within Second […] Continue reading →
