How-To

PLEASE NOTE: Changing skin & eye textures in the HUD will be disabled until you activate Omega.  (See instructions below).  If you do not want to activate Omega on Alexis, you’ll find a box of (no-omega) version of your avatar as well as the 5 eye colors in your kit.  You can add these manually to your AV.  All other functions in the HUD should work fine!

 Also, I am always striving to make Alexis better.  Rather than spam you with new updates, please go to any casper redelivery terminal to get the latest version.  If you do want me to send you Casper updates, please let me know and I will be happy to send you casper re-deliveries manually.  

PUT ON YOUR AVATAR

First, choose which avatar version you want to use.  Open either:

  1. .:pixies:. BOX OPEN Alexis micro .25m (Omega) AVATAR  (*recommended)    or
  2. .:pixies:. BOX OPEN Alexis micro .25m (no Omega) AVATAR

Second, take off all standard avatar attachments you don’t need (hair, shoes, etc).

Third, right click the items below in your inventory and ‘add’ them in the following order:

  • pixie full alpha
  • pixie shape
  • avatar BODY
  • avatar HEAD (pointy ears or normal ears)
  • avatar EYES
  • avatar HUD (attaches to the bottom/left corner but can be moved)
  • pixies fairy AO with tiny view OR just the tiny view HUD (if you want to use your own AO)
  • fairy lights (optional)
  • add Saelihn Aqua clothes (wings, skirt, outfit)

Tips:

  • eyes or body looking warped?  Detach, then re-add the body part or do a relog (don’t worry no one can see you like that – it’s client side rendering)
  • depending on the stands in your AO, you may want to adjust your hover height.
    • right click your avatar >> appearance >> hover height.  My micro is set at 0.010.
  • minimum avatar shadows settings (in preferences) >> simplified
    • tip-avatar-settings

INSTRUCTIONS TO ACTIVATE OMEGA ON ALEXIS

Omeg-Advanced---Kit-REquired-blue

Activate Omega by picking up the Pixie’s Omega System Kit in-world or on Marketplace.

Follow the instructions here. (make sure you wear ALL Omega parts for the installation: body, both heads, eyes, clothing & underwear)

Once installed, your skin & eye buttons in your HUD should work automatically for you.  You will also be able to use skin, eyes & clothes from vendors utilizing the Omega Applier system.

What to wear?

A simple search on Marketplace will give you a wide range of options. (Please note: rigged & fitted mesh clothing/hair/accessories will not work with Alexis).  Check out LNL’s shopping page and Omega Ladies on Flickr for some goodies.  I also started putting together a LookBook for all the different looks you can have with Alexis.  Tattoo/makeup layers are in the works.  Stay tuned for updates – don’t forget to subscribe!

Keep this Omega kit handy for upgrades or any problems you may experience with the Omega system.

RE-SIZE YOUR STANDARD SIZE MOD HAIR, SHOES, ETC.

– rez the hair/shoes to the ground
– right click the item and add the re-size script included in your notecard
– rename the hair/shoes & bring back to inventory (so you can find it later 🙂
– right click the hair/shoes & ‘add’ to your AV
– stand on a pose stand (optional but recommended)
– click the hair/shoes and re-size (do not use max or minimum size)
– when you’re happy with the size, click & delete the script
– enjoy!! 😀

AVATAR HUD

pixies-MAIN-HUD

Right click & wear. This HUD currently appears on the bottom left of your screen.

To relocate the placement on your screen:

  • right click the icon on your screen & choose ‘edit’
  • minimize window by scrolling down with your mouse wheel until you see the green arrows
  • move it left or right (it must be in the bottom area)
  • get out of edit mode to save

To save your own avatar color presets:

  • choose a color on the color wheel
  • click an arrow to save it to that palette

Clear the color on your avatar

Touching parts of the hud may change your avatar color.  To clear it, touch the white palette in the avatar color section.  We are working on this fix.  (Apologies in advance).

=> I recommend detaching the HUD when you are finished customizing your avatar to minimize script usage.

CUSTOMIZE YOUR AVATAR without OMEGA appliers

TO CHANGE THE SKIN MANUALLY (you must have your own head, torso & leg textures)

  • Rez a copy of the body & head to the ground
  • Rename (so you can find it later)
  • Right click and edit the parts & check off ‘Select Face’ in the menu
  • Choose each section (head, torso & legs) and drag each texture to the
    edit window
  • Rename the body parts
  • Bring back to inventory
  • ‘add’ it to your AV

TO CREATE YOUR OWN CLOTHES MANUALLY

The same applies to the above but add top or bottom textures to the full perm clothing and underwear parts in your kit.)
