partial-mesh matching

My partial mesh items, especially the micro-miniskirts like Facil, Ava and Eva are some of my best sellers. Unfortunately, a small number of people see the mesh attachment as being too dark, UGH! From what I have gathered, this is a result of just a few settings. I did some experimenting, and have some screenshots and suggestions for you if you experience this problem. I don’t know if this will fix it for everyone, and I hope you can understand that it’s out of my control.

In my test, 3 settings cause/fix the problem.
In this screenshot, you can see the extra-dark attachment. Please see the settings that I point to on the screenshot:

  1. Preferences > Graphics:
    Notice how I have my Graphics Preferences settings on “Low”. This setting has “Basic Shaders” turned off.
  2. World > Environment Editor > Sky Presets > Lighting
    1. “Scene Gamma” is at 1.16 in my example. This is not normally a problem, but with Basic Shaders off, it seems to cause the darker attachment.
    2. The “Ambient” color has a similar effect on the attachment as “Scene Gamma” but I didn’t document that in the screenshot.

So there are 3 possible solutions:

  1. Turning on Basic Shaders completely fixed the problem for me in all light settings. Setting your graphics to “Mid” (or higher) will activate a few different settings, and turn Basic Shaders on. This will give you better quality in general and allow you to be in different light settings without a problem. If you are running an older computer, or need low settings for some reason, you may not be able to make this adjustment.
  2. If you need to keep your graphics settings on Low, with Basic Shaders off:
    World > Environment Editor > Sky Presets > Lighting

    1. adjust the Scene Gamma setting
    2. adjust the Ambient light color (no screenshot arrow, it’s to the left of Gamma)

I work very hard to match all attachments to the layers they connect to as well as I can, and I don’t misrepresent my products by Photoshopping out the flaws. Please, please, please don’t leave a negative Marketplace review if you have this problem, it’s completely out of my control.
