HM3: Minor "TopsStandard" tweak

I just posted a slightly updated “TopsMaleStandard” set that fixes a patterning bug on one of the sleeveless items and on the ribbed t-shirt.


At the urging of both Damien and Violodion, I’ve put up a HeroMachine 3 Bugs page, perma-linked over there in the right column. I and Damien will try to keep that updated with your reports so I can remember not to forget what’s going on, and so you can quickly see if what’s happening to… [ Read more … ]
