Stopping "Failed to Find Clothing" Message

Post by Bryce Tully »

:?: I tried to add an alpha from a very old clothing that I imported from another world years ago today. I got the error "Failed to find clothing in database". Ok, fine, I'll remake the item, that's not a problem. I am not wearing the alpha now, but every time I change something about my appearance, change shape, bodypart, change clothes, attachments, etc. I get a fresh error saying Failed to find clothing in database. I've tried logging out and logging back in, how do i make it stop?

Hi Bryce,

Please try the following:

Go to your inventory find a working outfit folder, right click it and then select the Replace Current Outfit option.

Once that's done clear your viewer inventory cache then restart your viewer.

I don't have any outfits set up, but I dropped a folder of shirts on myself and that seemed to work. Thanks! Now to set up an outfit so I have something for next time.

There are definitely major problems with virtual world cache systems-- especially in Firestorm. Firestorm instructions suggest never clearing cache unless it is absolutely necessary, but so very often clearing cache is the key to correcting a major problem. Just seems that cache gets messed up on a regular basis. I find myself being forced to clear cache at least once a month or so... and sometimes inventory cache as well. (One has to wonder how a database such as inventory can get messed up... but it does.)

So that's always one thing I do when I'm having one of those "makes no sense at all" problems. I clear cache... and quite often the problem vanishes.
