Title: Avastar's newest model...
Post by: Han Held on January 02, 2018, 12:20:12 AM
This is an interesting development. The folks behind Avastar have introduced a new, limited avatar to use as a base for creation.

You can read about it here: https://blog.machinimatrix.org/avamesh/

Notably, you can (re)use it for commercial endeavors.

Potentially, it could take some of the wind out of Ruth 2.0's sails; but I doubt it will.
Ruth 2.0 is at the point where it's pretty well usable as a drop-in replacement for Athena (it's primary competitor). Once the applier and UI issues are smoothed out, it will work as a complete replacement.

Whereas the Avastar model doesn't have the huds or anything in place for it, and also uses the "Starlight" skin (which is even older than the eloh skins if I remember correctly). Also, unlike Ruth it doesn't seem to be designed to be used inworld (but in blender).
