I’ve spent a lot of time on the Second Life forums lately, mainly because of the new continent Bellisseria. But Linden Homes is not what this post is about. I was perusing other threads and happened upon one about TMP/Legacy mesh body. Now, to be honest, I was never a fan of TMP body. I in my default avatar didn’t understand what all the hoopla was about. I did try going to The Shops but found it to be too confusing and gave up on trying the DEMO.
Fast forward to the present and on the forums, many are singing the praises of the Legacy mesh body and just as many former customers are just downright upset. I wear one mesh body brand exclusively and I am not interested in any more than that. That being said, I wanted to satisfy my curiosity about the Legacy body. I went to MP and got the DEMO as the experience at The Shops by all accounts is an experience in and of itself. My appraisal is as follows.
All photos are raw shots. Please keep in mind that this is my personal opinion. There will be many that disagree with me, and that is fine. Different strokes for different folks.
The mesh body itself is pretty enough, but nothing out of the ordinary. The Hud was a bit confusing at first. You have to enable media and allow inworld scripts to play media which I always have switched off. Do read the notecards before starting. I repeat, read the notecards before starting. Information you gather from those notecards is invaluable.
I was up on my platform, taking these photos when I noticed open areas in a few places. Now my platform is 1000m up so I tp’d down to ground level and you could still see the open spaces. This is not good.
I haven’t had cankles since my default avatar days, and I don’t feel like going backward.
This is the “ouch” foot height. The foot looks deformed to me.
Many have sung the praises of the hands. I do not see any difference from my mesh body of choice.
While I do have a slight thigh gap with my mesh body ( I think all female mesh bodies do), the Legacy body thigh gap is much more extensive. I used my own shape in all the photos, and yes, the junk in my trunk was a bit fuller as were the breasts with the Legacy body.
I don’t do full-frontal nude shots, but the distance from waist to the genital area I felt was a bit much, and the genital area is not that pretty either. This area just looks and feels off. You’ll have to DEMO yourself and make your own decision on this one.
Again, the cankles. I just can’t get beyond this.
The one saving grace about this mesh body is that it has excellent nipples. Unfortunately, great nipples are not worth 5000K to me. All in all, I can’t love it. I’ll stick with what I have and spend my Lindens elsewhere.
