Catwa has released a male mesh head today named Jackson. Here is some information about him:
- The price of this head is L$3599.
- The DEMO is free and available on marketplace and the Catwa mainstore.
- The Developers Kit for skinners is free and available on marketplace and the Catwa mainstore.
- This head does not come with its own skin layer for body or an applier. It comes with a skin that matches the skin tones of the male L’Etre skins. You can go to the L’Etre Mainstore and pick up the appliers for the SLink male mesh body to match the skin on the head. However, I did not see regular male skins or appliers for any other mesh body there. Not sure if they haven’t been released yet or if they didn’t rez for me or I just didn’t see them. You can head down to the L’Etre Mainstore to check for yourself before purchasing.
- So far, as far as I know, there are no 3rd party appliers for this mesh head as of yet. But, it was just released today and the Developers kit is available for free so I’m hoping many skinners will have skins for this head soon. You can keep an eye on the Catwa Mesh Heads flickr group to see any new releases of appliers.
- This mesh head is animated in many ways with gestures, expressions, AO for Eyes, blinking speed, and talking animations that are triggered by typing in local chat.
- This head comes with a separate HUD for the head, beard, teeth and neck which has a neck size section that lets you choose from a list of different bodies to make your neck seamless. Also has a neck fix ON/OFF button that helps even further.
Here is a video that shows me playing with the main HUD this head comes with. You can see how the HUD works as well as the animations, gestures and more.
I really like this head, I find him to be very handsome. The animations are also very smooth and quite charming. The only drawback that I see at the moment is because of a lack of body appliers it is only possible to wear this head with the SLink male mesh body at the moment. But I am confident that will be resolved very soon as the other appliers are released because the Developers Kit is so easily accessible and free.
