VertexColorMaskSlots[edit | edit source]

When creating outfits/armours/helmets and such, we sometimes will want to hide certain parts of the body, or make it so those parts aren't hidden, such as wanting a tiara not to hide hair.

You will see something like this in the merged.lsf files:

<node id="VertexColorMaskSlots">
<attribute id="Object" type="FixedString" value="Torso" />

These are the values you can use: (note: these values are case sensitive)

(Hot Pink Physics Paint) Slows physics on cloth.* #FF0180
(Red Physics Paint) Activates physics on cloth.* #FF0101

*The less red in a color you use, the less flowy the physics will behave. So if you use pink vertex paint (#FF0180) for example, it will be less red overall and the physics will move more slowly.

Other Ways to Hide Mesh Parts[edit | edit source]

There are certain helmets in the game that hide ears/beard/head.

First of all, this is done by the gr2, so if you accidentally name any part of your head Ears/Head/Beard, other than the intended mesh themselves, both will be hidden by these helmets.

If you want to purposefully do this, make sure to have correct name in the data tab and object tab of your mesh in blender.

Remember to put these tags in node id="base" tag in the visualbank which is different from where the "hide hair" goes

  <node id="base"> <children> <node id="Tags">  <attribute id="Object" type="FixedString" value="Hide Head/Beard/Ears" />` in the visualbank hides the head part just like a vertexmaskslot does.
