Setting up Outfits

  1. If you don’t already have one (see RLV), make a top folder in inventory and name it #RLV. This is your RLV shareable folder, everything in it unless otherwise marked could be accessible to RLV enabled devices. You control what you put in this folder.
  2. Inside #RLV, make a folder named .outfits. This is where you will put Outfits folders containing items you want to be worn and removed together as an organized outfit.
  3. Inside .outfits make a folder named .core. This is where you will place items you do not want removed when changing Outfits. If you have more than one “base” avatar, for instance different mesh heads, you can place folders in .core that will define different “bases”. See more below. Note: For all three folders, #RLV, .outfits and .core, use the exact characters displayed here. Case is critical and the dot in front of the name is critical.

Making Outfits

  1. A “defined Outfit folder” is a folder with an outfit in it, inside the folder .outfits. When an Outfit is worn, Outfits will detach/unwear any item that is in a defined Outfit folder other than the one called to be worn. If an item is not in a defined outfit folder, it will not be removed. This behavior can be changed in the Configure menu.
  2. To make an outfit, create a folder inside .outfits named anything you like that is short, unique and memorable–to look good on a button. If you like, you can use subfolders. If you use subfolders, make sure all items in the Outfit are in one of the subfolders. Link any items that are always worn together (for instance shoe and shoe base) by putting them next to each other in the same folder or subfolder.

    The Outfits Menu

Lock Core

This button has a check box. When checked (white), a @detachallthis=n RLV command is issued, and nothing in this folder can be detached. This also safeguards these items from other RLV devices worn or issuing strip commands to your relay.

  • When Core is locked, you cannot edit the folder in your inventory. If you try you will get this message: “[Timestamp] Second Life: Unable to perform the requested inventory action due to an RLV locked folder.” To change the contents of the folder, first Uncheck Lock Core.
  • Inside the .core folder place any items you never want removed or replaced by an outfit change. Such items might include anything you consider part of your “base” avatar, such as mesh head and body.
  • It is safe to place your collar in Core even if it is not locked.
  • Do not place items already in Core in any other defined outfit. It’s not necessary.
  • It is not necessary to have a (nostrip) tag on items in Core.
  • You can use links.
