Frequently Asked Questions - ModiVatar Editor HUD 

This page is for the feature listings of the ModiVatar Editor HUD. The Editor HUD is the HUD which allows the user to edit attachments.

  1. Help Me!!!

    The Modi-Vatar HUDs are both equipped with built-in documentation systems. You can access this system by clicking the "Help Me!!!" button, and then clicking whatever it is you have a question about. A help file will then be displayed specific to whatever it is you clicked.

  2. Connect

    The "Connect" button will give you a list of users within 20 meters who are wearing Model HUDs (the counterpart HUD to the Editor). If there are no HUDs, you will receive a prompt notifying you. Make sure the person you want to connect to is wearing the Model HUD before you click it.

  3. Disconnect

    "Disconnect" ends the editing session you have with the user you are curently connected to. After you have disconnected, the Editing HUD will not be able to modify the Model HUD’s attachments, unless they are reconnected.

  4. Give HUD

    "Give HUD" allows you to have the free Model HUD be delivered to anyone within 20 meters. The Model HUD is the tool that the user who wants to allow his or her attachments to be edited will use.

  5. Name Display

    The name of the person who owns the HUD you are connecting/connected to is listed here. Otherwise it will say “No Connection.”

  6. Status Icon

    The "Status Icon" displays your current connection status to another HUD. Red with no bar means you are not connected to anyone, and the name section will read "No Connection." Green and red with a yellow bar indicates the connection is pending the approval of the Model HUD user. Green with a bar means the connection is active with the Model HUD, and the Editor HUD has the ability to edit any active attachments.

  7. Position Display

    Position numbers display the current position of the selected attachment in typical XYZ format. X is red, Y is green, and Z is blue.

  8. Rotation Display

    Rotation numbers display the current rotation (in degrees) of the selected attachment in typical XYZ format. X is red, Y is green, and Z is blue.

  9. Position Sliders

    Position sliders allow you to control the position of the selected attachment(s) either incrementally by using the buttons, or by click-and-dragging along the center bar.

  10. Rotation Sliders

    Rotation sliders allow you to control the rotation of the selected attachment(s) either incrementally by using the buttons, or by click-and-dragging along the center bar.

  11. Dual Axis Position

    "Dual Axis Position" buttons allow you to incrementally adjust the position of the selected attachment(s) on ~two~ axes instead of one. You can change which pair of axes you are adjusting using the radio selection underneath.

  12. Dual Axis Rotation

    "Dual Axis Rotation" buttons allow you to incrementally adjust the rotation of the selected attachment(s) on ~two~ axes instead of one. You can change which pair of axes you are adjusting using the radio selection underneath.

  13. Position Unit Controls

    The "Position Unit" is the number to which the position controls are snapped, allowing you easier control over the position the selected attachment(s) are set to. The buttons adjust this number up or down.

  14. Rotation Unit Controls

    The "Rotation Unit" is the number to which the rotation controls are snapped, allowing you easier control over the rotation the selected attachment(s) are set to. The buttons adjust this number up or down.

  15. Attachment Icons

    The icons represent attachment points on the Model user. Gray means the user is either not wearing an attachment there or has not put ModiVatar editing scripts in it; they cannot be selected or edited. Blue means that the Model user has put in ModiVatar editing scripts, and you ~can~ select and edit it. Green icons are points you have selected. If multiple points are selected, the “main” selection will be bright green and the others a darker shade. All selected points will be moved relative to the main selection. Purple means that the attachment is busy, such as having its scripts removed. Clicking and holding an icon will allow you to remove its scripts. Simply clicking an icon allows you to select/deselect it. You can also select/deselect attachments by clicking the attachments themselves.

  16. Mirror Tool

    The "Mirror Tool" allows you to have changes to one or more selected attachments be reflected to the attachments on the opposite side of the avatar. Please note that opposing attachments with the same absolute position will not always appear precisely the same on their respective points on the SL avatar due to the way the avatar itself is designed. After making use of the mirror tool, some attachments may require some "fine tuning."

  17. Multi-Select

    “Multi-Select” allows you to select multiple attachment points so that you can edit them all simultaneously. With this option enabled, simply click the attachment icons as you would normally to select them. The “main” selection will appear as bright green, and it will always be the last icon you click. To deselect any point, simply click it again.

  18. Remove Scripts

    “Remove Scripts” allows you to remove all ModiVatar editing scripts from all attachments. This is good for a quick cleanup after a session. If the Model user do not clean out the attachment editing scripts, the scripts will remove themselves when the Model user teleports or changes regions.

  19. Revert Changes

    “Revert Changes” allows you to undo any and all changes that have been made to the attachments, setting them back to the position and rotation they were before any changes were made. However, this option only works so long as the ModiVatar editing scripts are present in the attachments. If you remove the scripts from one or more attachments, you will not be able to revert the changes any more.

  20. Undo/Redo

    The ModiVatar editing system comes equipped with history states. Using the “Undo/Redo” feature allows you to step back and forth through changes that have been made to the Model user’s attachments. The history stores up to a maximum of 100 “frames” after which it removes the oldest changes and adds in the new frames.
