When preparing a clothing item for upload, you need to make some choices in where the item will go and how the item will fit on the avatar. This allows users to easily change clothes as well as mix and match outfits from different creators to create their own unique looks.
Space allows users to wear one item per clothing layer in each slot, on their avatar's skeleton. When creating an item to be worn, you start with the skeleton, then choose the slot, and then finally choose the layer.
Choose the relevant skeleton for your clothing item. Please note Space supports multiple third party skeletons as well as it's own native male and female models. Your item will only show up in the store or the wardrobe for a user wearing that particular skeleton.
Tick the slots your clothing item should occupy. When a user puts on an item, it will automatically remove other clothing items that occupy the same slot. Be careful not to select slots unnecessarily; for instance, a normal jacket would cover chest and uppper chest. But selecting back as well would prevent users from wearing the jacket with a backpack or wings.
Set the clothing item to one of five sorting layers.
Mesh deletion and tucking of clothing items is applied dynamically in accordance with this layer.
So if a user wears a pair of boots set to "Close Fitting" worn with a pair of pants set to "Skintight," the pants mesh will be deleted inside the boots.
If the user then changes to a different pair of pants set to "Loose Fitting" the same pair of boots will then be deleted inside the pants.
