Physics Sliders

Some of the Collision Volumes have been added to simulate gravity (physics). This is implemented for Pecks, Belly and Butt. Furthermore LindenLabs have added some more extra bones for Fitted Mesh: UPPER_BACK, LOWER_BACK, LEFT_HANDLE and RIGHT_HANDLE. Avastar does not automatically create Weightmaps for these bones (Except for the BELLY). But we have added a weight generator for those bones.

This weight generator has unfortunately been named physics generator, although strictly spoken the Handles and the Back bones are no SL physic bones.

The weight generator gets into action when you click the Generate physics button.

After the physics weights have been generated, you get 4 new Fitting Sliders for Butt, Pecs, Back and Handles. You use those sliders to adjust the weights for the specific regions.

Hint: The sliders are split into 2 regions:

  • Left – Center: Increase strength of weights
  • Center – Right: Pinch the weighted area

By default the Handles get no Weight (set to -1, see image) (as recommended by LindenLab )

Important: Remember that only the PECK Bones, the Belly and the BUTT are influenced by Secondlife physics. All other bones are not affected.
