4.1: Overview of how I use Base Outfits
The wardrobe system has a Base Outfits area, this is an excellent feature that streamlines wardrobe usage. I like many others use this, in my case I drag three items here and along with using the Dressing Delay under Prefs. I have basically automated the resetting of my Mesh bodies alphas whenever Wardrobe invokes my Base outfits.
In the image below you can see the 2nd item Maitreya 01_Alpha Reset HuD. This is a special HUD I made using the Maitreya AutoHide toolkit. The way it works is fairly simple.
(1). When the HUD is attached the Maitreya AutoHide script toggles all alpha segments as invisible. (2) The HUD then auto detaches, this is achieved by a 2nd script which I wrote. (3) On detachment all alpha segments toggle as visible.
The built in Dressing Delay of Wardrobe is ample for all this to work in a logical order. Its simple but effectively automates the resetting of alpha segments whenever Wardrobe invokes my Base outfits. Currently its set at 3 seconds. I could increase it if I ever find that the lag monster causes issues.
I will update this page at some point in the near future going into more details once I have remediated items and dressing policies.
4.2: Setting up Base Outfits
(optional – highly recommended)
To add a Wardrobe item to Base Outfits, first click on Activate editing. You will see it on the right side of the webpage on the Base Outfits line. Once clicked you can now cursor over any item in wardrobe and using standard windows drag and drop functionality to drag any item into the Base Outfits line.
Once finished click on Deactivate editing.
To remove an item from Base Outfits you simply click on the little x in the top right corner for each item in your Base Outfits line, you will see it when in edit mode.
The key with base outfits is making sure your wearing policies are working the way you want them.
Butta has a fairly in depth YouTube tutorial on base outfits on that is worth watching.
Now that your at this point and have started adding items and possibly using base outfits. Its important that none of that hard work is lost. Lets now look at backing up your Wardrobe on the 5: Backup & Restore.
