… that is the question posed by Deviant Kitties Hairstyles in their latest post, Hair Options Pole found at http://www.deviantkitties.com/?p=287. They want to know whether you love them or hate them. Personally I hate resize scripts for hair and for most things prim related.
I am capable of editing my prim pieces and can do so without help. If you can’t, take a building class. I am no building genius , but I got the basics down so that I wouldn’t look like a noob wearing prim clothing. There is actually a free beginners building class at the Criss Museum on Wednesdays and Sundays at 1 PM SLT as well as many more in SL, if you care. Not to be a snob about this, but people who can’t manage that much, shouldn’t wear prim clothing or attachments. Make a copy before you start. Practice often. It is not that hard.
There are so many reason I say this so strongly. One big one is that rarely do I find that simply making a prim larger or smaller across the whole prim piece works for me. Usually it varies from prim piece to prim piece. Sometimes these pieces need to be shifted as well. Never so much is this true as when I deal with my hairs.
I don’t know, maybe I have a fugly shaped head or something, but most hairs don’t fit with out some form of tweaking. I really don’t want to have to click on exactly the prim that I want to edit and click this prim only and go up and down bit by bit. Talk about tedious, when the alternative is to edit linked parts in edit mode, switch prim by prim with a single click then drag smaller or bigger or twist just right. And that twisting and tweaking position is something the resize scripts rarely do for you and when they do they don’t do it well. There are some types of items this works great for but for me hair ain’t one of them. So Deviant if you have to put in resize scripts, don’t make it an either or, make it an addition.
I am resigned to this being a battle I will lose. Hopefully they will supply that middle ground or their goes an end to my ability to wear Deviant Kitties hair. It already takes me forever to modify them to fit my head because there is so much custom work that needs to be done. I can’t afford the time to work with resize scripts; there are just too many other great hairs out there. And if they all go this route, I look great bald. 😀
And please whether you agree or disagree with my opinion, please, please, please go vote. When a creator is kind enough to really care what her customer base prefers, support her / him. Don’t leave them hanging on just the opinions of a few. If you don’t vote don’t complain (you know I wanted to say the b-word here but refrained). I encourage you to vote Modifiable, No Resize Scripts.
