Import tips

  • Stick to the available categoriesThe category your accessory is in determines how it moves with your avatar and provides hints as to how that accessory should be handled. Straying from the available categories may result in accessories improperly following your avatar as you move around.
  • It is not necessary to specify a collision mesh - Accessories do not currently use the collision mesh.
  • When creating accessories, model against the reference character meshes - Accessories should be modeled relative to the reference characters meshes. It is important that the transform handle for your accessory coincides with the transform handle for the reference avatar mesh. Find and download the male and female reference character meshes at the end of this article.
