This update to the lined chrome thigh bands finally brings the remake of the lined chrome serie to a close!
New optimized meshs, suspension poses, better click zones, sit-lock, and other bug fixes.
Just a few more parts, right?
It isn’t on the updater because I’m not very smart, so I’ve issued a global re-delivery for marketplace buyers.
For those who bought it in-world, you should message me to get an updated package.
- 3x parallel pipes, straight sections spaced for 1 m, 30 cm and 10 cm pipe flanges.
- 3x parallel pipes, with a 90° curve spaced for 1 m, 30 cm and 10 cm pipe flanges.
- 2x parallel in straight & curved versions.
I still need to get everything clean and packaged up, that’s for tomorrow.
I also prepped the thigh cuffs and updated their code, they are pretty much ready, save for those extra animations.
Here is a little update on the thigh bands WIP. I couldn’t get much done last week & the weekend was pretty busy, so that’s why I didn’t post a lot. I think I’m done with the new thigh band model, LODs included. Furthermore, I still need to make a proper suspension pose set (finally?) before I can push this update into the wild.
I keep running into timing issues with this update cycle and I keep missing the weekly schedule I was trying to self-impose… As a way to keep things moving quickly and to eventually get to a proper new project.
Granted this month has been plagued with various real life events eating into my timetable… (Yes, let’s use that excuse once more).
I’ve started working on a much-needed update to the pipe kit, namely parallel pipe sections, both straight and curved, this is the 30 cm diameter version, with just enough space to put the flanges in, and some realistic space between them. I plan on making these for each pipe size since they all need a different amount of space. Not only that, but I might also add some other parts, I’m not entirely sure what else is urgently needed there.
Furthermore, I figured I’d also make a picture of all the remade pieces of the lined chrome set, just to prove that they are all different and unique, because the picture I’ve been posting the past couple weeks might give the wrong impression there.
The cuff code is also updated to the “no-standing when chained” feature.
I’m also deploying the RLV Activator 2.5 on all products from now on.
New store picture again, and as usual, current owners will receive a notification to pick up their update, for free.
I want to apologize for the lack of updates, my sleep cycle and mood have been pretty messed up since I came back from visiting my family on Easter. I’m working on getting everything back on track. In the meantime, I started working on the lined chrome wrist cuffs remake, I don’t have much to show, but they look really similar to the elbow cuffs anyway.
I have to pretty much redo each pair one by one as those are a bit less tolerant to resizing since there isn’t so many parts to them anymore.
The wrist cuffs are also noticeably thicker than the original, it started with the elbow cuffs, because I was accounting for resizing of the original sculpted prims, and I figured I might as well make it consistent across all cuffs, just to give me a little more wiggle room for fitting.
As a result, the collar is slightly thinner, maybe I’ll fix it, maybe I won’t?
As if it wasn’t obvious from last post, it is time for a “major” Lined chrome elbow cuff update:
- Remodeled from scratch, so they are waaay more optimized than the original prim and sculpt mixture, and look a lot nicer.
- I finally added a suspension for those cuffs!
- I added the “no-standing when chained” function that I mentioned previously as well as the self-suspension safety distance.
- New store picture!

Why would I do the elbow cuffs first? Well… I did not actually plan this, I picked the wrong reference model and only noticed when I was pretty much done with it.
These look so much better with actual holes…
