We all know what the biggest pain is about having a mesh body – trying to alpha the body out every time you wear clothing! Even with fitmesh made for your body, you can still find yourself having to alpha sections out so that your legs/arms/butt/breasts don’t poke through when your AO moves…. and today Maitreya have released a solution in the form of … wait for it… AUTO ALPHA!
What are you on about Daria?
Auto-hide or Auto-alpha basically means that when you put these pants on, they trigger the part of your body that needs to be hidden for them to be worn properly… automatically! It honestly makes getting dressed with a mesh body so easy that the clothing you’re putting on may as well be *perfect* mesh body fitmesh! Obviously though, you realise it’s not when you take it off and half your body is alpha’d out 😉
Currently you can experience this awesomeness at Maitreya, where you can grab the Skinny Jeans, the Zipper Leather Pants, and the Thigh High Boots which all now have this auto alpha built in (if you’ve bought either of these previously, just get a redelivery!). In addition, if you are a creator (or just a user) you can get the kit to create ‘autohide’ from the Maitreya store right now!
The big question becomes – is this setting a new industry standard? Up until now the focus has been fitmesh, at least it has been for designers who are keen to stay ahead of the market and for shoppers who want to look amazing in their mesh bodies. So will this technology eliminate the need for fitmesh? The answer is…. no it won’t haha… for two reasons; firstly, the clothing would need to be at least some form of mesh body fitmesh in the first place for it to fit (even if alphas are needed) and secondly, the biggest drawcard of mesh body fitmesh is being able to use and have your own shape in mesh clothing, which you would lose without fitmesh!
I’ll tell you one thing though, the Auto Alpha feature makes life a hell of a lot easier for consumers, but at the end of the day, a damn good mesh body fitmesh item will always win 😉
