Avatar appears as a cloud

Help Suddenly turned into gas bubble that will not go away. Tried many relogs, cache clearing, rebakes texture refreshes’, working with appearance, and striping the avatar of all possible items and clothing, cannot get him back?? How do I get him back?

Hi Barnard,

This can sometimes happen in OpenSim-based grids when switching between different viewers.

The recommended solution is to:

1) Create a new folder in your inventory.

2) Create new shape, skin, eyes and hair in that folder (make all of them wearable).

3) Right click the folder and select "Replace Outfit"

That should make your avatar visible again. Once it is you can change back to your regular avatar.

For details see: http://metaverse4me.wordpress.com/2012/ ... -be-fixed/

Hi Branard,

You only need to replace the shape, skin, eyes and hair. For details please see: http://metaverse4me.wordpress.com/2012/ ... -be-fixed/

Please try clearing your viewer cache as well.

a small aside note: in kitely you can export your shape to your computer-)) so when you get it tweaked just right, export it..then when you have any future issues [or need it elsewhere] you can go into appearance and import it easily.

saves all that time putting in those tons of numbers over and over again...lol
