Personally, I didn’t know what to think about mesh furniture. Every time I saw a piece, I would count the parts and see if it could be made with scuplties. I always thought ‘what the hell’s the point?’ But, alas, it turns out there’s a reason for designers turning to mesh.
“From a design perspective, it’s a lot easier in my opinion,” says Cyclic Gearz of Starstruck, who’s store, at the moment, specializes in mesh. “Sculpties are limited to work with, mesh opens up a whole world of detail and efficiency. You can make something that would be a lot of prims in sculpts, but only 1 or 2 land impact with mesh.”
Then I brought up the constant hassle of having to restart your viewer when that annoying glitch of mesh disappearing starts to happen, but she has a solution!
“There’s a debug setting to make mesh not disappear as much,” Cyclic says. “MeshMaxConcurrentRequests. It’s set really low for some reason, so if you make it higher it should mean mesh won’t disappear as quickly, 150 is about right.”
But enough about that, let’s take a look at her goods..
I’m not normally impressed with something that I’m already biased against, but when I saw these, I was damn impressed. Every other time I’ve seen mesh, it’s been horribly primmy, but these items amazed me the same way scuplties did when they were first used everywhere.
Lots of colours to pick from, and even some adorably cheeky posters that I didn’t show you, but for now, they’re only available at March Mesh Madness.
