Here's a blow-by-blow list of what's changed, new, and some tips for the "Appearance Editor" in 2.1 — along with pictures and videos to help show you how it all works in action. The Appearance Editor has already seen numerous changes from 2.0 to 2.1, and we plan to continue improving it, so if you spot something outdated on this page, please update!

To get into the Appearance Editor, click the the My Appearance sidebar.

Changes

  • You can create New Clothes and New Body Parts from gear ("more options") menu.
  • When in Edit Outfit mode (click the wrench and screwdriver icon), the inventory search box is hidden by default. To open it, click Add More, then click the magnifying glass.
  • Replace no longer embarrassingly leaves you naked! Context: replacing one outfit with another used to leave you partially naked if the new outfit didn't contain, say, pants. Now, when you choose to wear an outfit, the system doesn't remove items you were wearing unless the new outfit contains a replacement.
  • Known design flaw: the Wearing tab only provides an Edit Outfit option when items are right-clicked. See Erica Linden's explanation in VWR-20107.

New features

  • Add More panel - Shown when in Edit Outfit mode. Quickly sort through your inventory for items you can wear, which you may prefer to using the My Inventory sidebar tab.
  • Folder/list view - Click these buttons when in Edit Outfit: {{red|image}
  • Height in Meters/Feet - Shown when Editing Shape. (Quick way to get there is right-click your avatar and choose Edit My Shape.)
  • Library avatars appear as outfits - Broken in 2.1.1? Can't right-click and wear Library outfits.
  • Make changes without saving, and have them appear the next time you login - In case you want to undo the changes:
    • Right-click your avatar and choose Edit My Outfit.
    • In the lower-right of Edit Outfit, click Undo Changes.
  • Multi-wearables - Big one! - You can wear up to 5 layers of each clothing item type, as shown in this video:
