Handy Paws (Female) Readme

Bakes on Mesh

BoM is enabled on the Handy Paws by default.

If your Handy Paws show invisible or with a ‘missing wrist’ then your mesh body may be set up for Omega appliers instead; check the Appliers section opposite to proceed!

Bakes on Mesh allows you to use system wearable for your skin, tattoos, layering clothing such as stockings, and so on. It does not work in tandem with Omega appliers – it replaces their functionality. If you use an Omega applier to change your skin/mod, it will disable BoM.

In the Options section of the HUD are some controls for BoM.

  • ENABLE
    Sets the ‘skin’ part of the feet to the BoM lower body texture.
    Alpha mode is set to ‘masking’ 128.
  • ASYMMETRIC
    As above, but also sets the left foot to the LEFT_FOOT auxiliary BoM texture.
  • RESET TEXTURE
    Sets the ‘skin’ part of the feet to a blank white texture, and the alpha mode for ‘none’. A visual reset before applying an Omega applier.

Some tattoo and universal wearables are included which have a BoM version of the marking layer options. You can use these beneath clothing system layers. They can be edited through your inventory to change the tint.

Appliers

The only appliers that can be used are Omega appliers (on all sizes), eBody Reborn and Inithium Kupra materials appliers (on relevant sizes only).

Nothing extra is needed for eBody Reborn materials support!

For Kupra materials support, an activator is required which can be purchased from Inithium’s inworld store.

Out of the box, these paws do not support Omega appliers – you need to buy the system kit to install this capability.

The paws support Omega for applying skins/mods, materials and nails (onto the claws).

Sizing

The paws fit a variety of mesh bodies.

  • (Maitreya/Slink)
    The hands will fit any body that also fits Slink womens hands – Slink Physique/Hourglass, Maitreya, and so on.
  • (Belleza)
    Fits Freya and Isis. For Venus, use Slink mode with the size above.
  • (Belleza Gen.X)
    For Gen.X Classic and Curvy.
  • (Legacy.F)
    For all variants of the female Meshbody Legacy.
  • (eB.Reborn)
    For eBody Reborn.
  • (Kupra)
    For Inithium Kupra.
  • (SP Peach)
    For Spider Productions Peach.

NOTE: There are normals mismatches on the ankles of many fits, due to the dev kits for those bodies not having the true mesh to source the correct shading from. This shows mostly on light skins/furry mods, and with shiny specular applied. Nothing to be done about this. Apologies!
Fits with accurate mesh normals: eBody Reborn, Belleza Gen.X, Kupra, SP Peach.

​​The paws have three palm pad styles.

  • Palm Pad A
    3 segments.
  • Palm Pad B
    Heart shape.
  • No Palm Pad

Resources

All textures used on the paws via application from the HUD are available with full permissions inside the Texture Resources box/folder with your paws. This also includes UV maps and BoM markings.

Mesh dev kits for clothing/accessory creators are available here.
