How do I add my own insignia to my character?May 4, 2015 at 7:24 pm #123731
How do you get weapons and items to be held in hand? I loaded one of the presets and found that it actually phases through the thumb, how did you get it to do that?May 5, 2015 at 1:02 am #123740
@matttrach- If you have the weapon positioned in front of the hand, go to the the tabs above the item select screen and you’ll see a tab that says Transform. Click on that and in the top left hand corner of that tab there’s a button with a mask on it which will have the word Masking above it. This is the mask tool. If you click on that and then click on the hand underneath the weapon it will mask the weapon to the hand, giving the effect of the hand gripping the weapon, provided the weapon is positioned right.
Hope this helps.May 21, 2015 at 7:56 pm #124267
How do I cover up exposed shoulder joints like these?

@DCGirl: You’ll have to build any insignia not found in the massive category. Basic shapes found in Shapes, Tech, Standard go a long way.
@TGG: JR, above, describes masking. There are some tutorials around, too. Use masking to “clip” an arm overlay in the color you want or build a sleeve out of pieces, including those found in Tops. Or add a shoulder pad from the Shoulder categories?May 30, 2015 at 1:48 pm #124695
How do I add an existing insignia to a shield? Is there a way to do that? Just wondering, as it would be more visible on the character I’m working on, and could add a nice touch.May 30, 2015 at 3:02 pm #124706
@missionsgirl- Again it’s a case of masking. You position the insignia above the shield and then go to the transform tab (above the item selection screen) and click the masking tool (the button has a mask on it, that’s how you tell) then click on the shield and the insignia will wrap to the outline of the shield, so it doesn’t show outside of the outline. Hope this helps.March 12, 2016 at 12:19 pm #134495
How do I upload images to the forums?March 13, 2016 at 1:59 am #134504
@Logbook- There’s two ways. Firstly, if you look underneath the Reply box there is a button that says Choose File. Click that and you can select a file from your computer. The second way is for if you have images already uploaded to somewhere like DeviantArt of Photobucket. You open the image in a new tab from that page and then copy the link. Then, in the Reply box you should see a button at the top that looks like clip art of two mountains and a sun in a box. When you hover over it Insert/ edit image comes up. Click that and paste the link to the image into the Source box. And then obviously after either method just press submit on the reply.March 13, 2016 at 4:53 am #134510
Thanks, JR! Live long and prosper!December 28, 2017 at 9:48 am #148839
Is there a way to change direction of the character? Like have a side view?February 7, 2018 at 1:21 pm #149618
How can I make a side view of the character?February 22, 2018 at 7:23 am #149865
It’s gotta be built. Pretty much from scratch unless you find one you like in Custom poses. ChristiS has recently posted a kissing couple, for example.
Building usually involves using heads as shoulders, biceps, hips, etc. Takes time to make it look right. Good luck.
