IMVU user base has been maturing with age

I have been in IMVU for about 10 years and I've had a few hiatuses, a few years in total. Each time I have come back after a very long break I have been a little nervous about still belonging in IMVU or not, about still being in the same wavelength with the rest of the user base. But each time I've ...

Tall/short scalers vs. avatars

I do want to make my avatar taller, but there's something where we should choose the "lesser evil" what comes to them. Tall/short scalers: + Won't squash back to the default size and works with all avatars if made as a separate product. – Tall avatars may sit hovering above the sitting spots, short ...

Re: Framerate wobbling while gaming in Windows 10?

Nevermind, it was the thermal paste of my GPU, not any software. Problem solved and performance is much better now.

Boasting and ego trips

Those are something that have persisted in IMVU for a good while. I normally just shrug the keyboard warriors and empty threats off, but it does make a stain to the overall image of IMVU, so I do wish there was a way to change it.

How do you see them, what do you do?

Animating both accessory and the avatar with one product

I have ran into a situation where I have made an accessory that should also animated the avatar, but then I have created an "accessory" that's actually based on empty clothing instead. If I added the animation to an empty accessory , the avatar would not have been animated. Though if the accessory r...

Fast PR or slow PR, does it really matter that much?

In both this or that the work still belongs to the staff. ...

I know that as creators you probably know this, but I made this video mainly to spread the info about it to the customers - in all fairness, it should be common knowledge because ZCDs are technically cheating.

Re: Why are still avatars popular?

The real reason why Still Avatars are more popular over Animated Avatars is price. PEople don't want to pay 5k+ for an animated avatar, even tho in the end you are more likely spend just as much, if not more, in the long run, for additional poses to stand in. VisNova's avatars can cost more though,...

Re: Why are still avatars popular?

But the still avatars are more looking like dead to me, no movements, no eyeblinking, and a death-stare to who-knows-where. I also prefer the avatars to display a wider range of emotions and awareness (reactions) to the surroundings, feeling more like human actors compared to a marionettes, automat...
