Overheard: many say, I would love to try Ruth or Roth, but there are no clothes or accessories for them. With Athena, you see the clothes 'everywhere' making it super-easy to grab, and yet, we don't want to promote copybotting in Opensim, do we? No!
I have great news for you. This article is a tutorial on how to make your very own clothing HUD for Ruth and Roth 2.0.
First, you can pick up all these supplies at Monentes Jewelry store, FREE. The items are located outside the store, on the patio, in a clearly-marked REZ Zone. (You will find clothing HUDs for both Ruth and Roth already for your use, if you want.)
Please, copy all the items you want to your Inventory.
In your folder you will see: r2 Clothing HUD for Ruth or r2 Clothing HUD for Roth
When you rez it, it will look like this image:
Once both are worn, your clothing can be changed just by touching the images on the r2 Clothing HUD for Ruth or r2 Clothing HUD
Okay, that is easy enough but, then you think, you want even more clothes? Well, the good news about easy to use continues. The clothes are made by simply adding clothing templates to the r2 Clothing HUD for Ruth or r2 Clothing HUD
It really is simple. This HUD is composed of 24 squares. The green highlighted box on the left is an UPPER Template boxes, if you look, you can see all the uppers on the left. The red highlighted box on the right is a LOWER Template box, and if you look, you can see all lowers to the right of all the Uppers; it makes matched sets easy to find. If you go into Edit Linked parts, on each square they will be listed like this"
The highlighted squares in the diagram above indicate the first outfit, Upper and Lower. Select the boxes in Edit Linked and add your template textures accordingly. Uppers in s1U boxes, Lowers in s1L boxes.
When you get your r2 Clothing HUD for Ruth or r2 Clothing HUD filled with the textures you like, TAKE the HUD to inventory then ADD it again, and make sure you have ADDed the Ruth/Roth Clothing Preview too. Once both are ADDed, you can change your clothing just by touching the Uppers and/or Lowers on your personalized HUD. Mix and/or match as you like.
