Bent feet

Post by Donna Eason » Sun Apr 10, 2016 11:11 pm

Hi all,
My avatar's feet are bent to the left. Also, several of my students are missing one foot or both. How can I fix this?

THanks!

Hi Donna,

Hidden feet can be a result of wearing an attachment that hides your avatar feet (the name of the item in your inventory may include the word "alpha"). In Firestorm, point at your avatar, right click it to open the round popup menu and select Take Off, Detach and then the name of the leg that is hidden. This will remove this alpha layer from the leg and will reveal your avatar's foot.

Twisted facing shoes may be the result of improperly editing the shoe rotation. Right click that shoe, select the Edit option, switch to the Rotate tool then use the object movement controls to spin the shoe into the correct position.

I have found that feet will bend unnaturally, even without shoes on, when you are standing/walking on prims larger than 10x10x10meters, particularly if its several times larger than the old standard. This may be an issue of the physics engine, but I find you can attenuate this issue if you increase your avatars hover height so its feet are 0.05 to 0.1 meters off the surface. you edit this in the round menu when right clicking on your avatar.
