The Slink Physique Male Mesh Body

I am so excited to finally update my male avatar with the Slink Physique Male mesh body. It has been out for sometime now,  but to some of you who are still unaware or indecisive, this review post is for you! :D

Let's start with the price. It is a very modestly priced mesh body at L$1250 (with mesh hands and feet it will cost you approximately L$2400.) The package contains:

◈ Physique Male Mesh Body
◈ Five Different Alpha Layers
◈ Six Physique Base Skins
◈ Six Physique Male Neck Blender Tattoos
◈ Two Mod Shapes
◈ Default Brow Shape
◈ Physique Male Boxer Shorts
◈ Physique Mens Basic Tank Stone
◈ Physique Mens Stovepipe Jeans Stone
◈ Clothing & Alpha Utility HUD
◈ Physique RGB HUD Release 1
◈ and important notecards with fitting Instructions

◈ The Physique Male Alpha HUD is very user friendly. In the HUD, there is a non-functioning penis included with options for foreskin and pubic hair as shown in my photo. There are six preset skin tones with a bald and well detailed body hair option. There is also an underwear option in 3 colors.

◈ There is a RGB Tinting HUD for skins that do not have an applier. The skin I'm using here by Heaven's Gate has no skin applier. With the RGB Hud, I was able to tint the body as close to the color of the skin tone and the neck blender tattoo makes it as seamless as possible.

**Update added: Because a lot of my friends, including myself, are using skins that do not have an applier, I just had to add this here to show you how I use the RGB Tinting Hud.**

1. First step is to open the Developer menu from your viewer. You can do this through your viewer's Preference -> Advanced -> Show Developer Menu. On Developer menu, you can tick the "Show Color Under Cursor" to get the RGB color of your skin. The figure will then appear at the bottom right corner of your screen when you hover your cursor. They are very tiny numbers so you may need to write it down on a note card.

2. There is a RGB command that you can find at the bottom area of the RGB Hud. The RGB command is /13 skin R,G,B. When you type this command in the local chat together with the RGB of your skin, it will auto locate the skin color as shown on the right side of the RGB hud. From there, you can adjust the slider to get the closest skin tone for your mesh body.

3. You can also conceal the neck line area with Slink neck blender tattoo. This neck blender tattoo is modifiable so you can tint the color of your neck to make it as seamless as possible. To do this, right click your avatar to edit appearance -> under clothing tab, select the Slink Physique Male Neck Blender Skin then click on the color tint.

◈ In the clothing alpha area, I like that there are toggle set buttons for most parts of the body. It saves you time hiding the sections of the body that are poking through your clothes.

◈ This mesh body fits the standard mesh sizes. On my shape, I fit the S or small size for most mesh men apparel. I didn't tweak too much on my shape except for the body fat which I set to zero, torso muscle 28, leg muscle 43, and knee angle 50. With these figures, I have the perfect fit for "XS" slink mesh hands and feet. If you are the bulky type of a guy, it is recommended that you use the thickness, torso and leg muscle sliders.

◈ This mesh body is compatible with Omega Appliers. You can enjoy all the existing skins, clothing and tattoos already provided by different Omega user creators.

◈ My thoughts on this mesh body as a whole is that I love it! I like the attention to every small detail of the male physique and I enjoyed how the HUDs are easy to use and understand.
