Prim skirts - featuring SensiDress

Q: What is this?
A: Its a scripted skirt, to help solve some of the problems that prim skirts currently have. Such as when your avatar sits down the prim skirt stays straight down. Or when you walk, longer prim skirts "trail behind" you. The SensiDress solves these problems. It automatically adjusts itself depending on what your avatar is doing to sit correctly on your body. It covers sitting, standing, and walking but can be customized for any pose.

Q: How/where do I get the SensiDress upgrade?
A: Currently it's only in new skirts, "Raiment" and the "Grace" and "Blush" gowns. However, I'll be upgrading all the skirts over the next month.

Q: Do I still get a regular prim skirt with the skirts that have been upgraded?
A: Yes, you get a copy of the regular prim skirt and the SensiDress scripted skirt.

Q: How do I use it?
A: The skirts are identified by *S*. If the name of the skirt has *S* on the end, that's the SensiDress upgrade. Now you just have to wear it to make it work. Adjustments in fit might be needed. Keep in mind if you're on land that has disabled scripts, the dress will not work.

Q: How do I adjust it?
A: When wearing your skirt, click on it. It will give you a menu, select the "help" button to get a notecard with detailed instructions.

Q: Are all Nyte'N'Day prim skirts going to have this?
A: Yes! I will be updating skirts slowly to include the upgrade at no extra cost.

Q: I have a regular Nyte'N'Day prim skirt but I want the upgrade! Can I do that?
A: Yes! IM me with your request. Please keep in mind though, if you have a transferable skirt you will be required to "trade it in". In return you'll get two copy/no transfer skirts - a regular and a scripted one. If you have a copy/no transfer skirt please tell me the transaction details found at

Q: I purchased one of the dresses just before they were upgraded! Where's my skirt?
A: It's coming! :) I'm in the process of sending out packages to those who've purchased the skirts that are now upgraded. If you've purchased a skirt on or after Sept 1st 2007 look for a package soon. If it was bought before that please refer to the answer above. Please keep in mind the only upgraded skirts, right now, are: Nyte'N'Day - Grace, Nyte'N'Day - Raiment, Nyte'N'Day Blush.

YAY! :)

Edited to add: I didn't create this script. I'm not that talented. lol

WOW - I haven't seen these in action yet, but the pictures make them look wonderful. Can't wait to try them on.

You (and your Scripter ;-) are a star!

I would LOVE to be able to buy this script (copiable, I would hope) to put in all of my skirts and dresses! There isn't an AO or anything like it that has addressed this successfully up to now. I am very excited to see this, and I want all my dresses to have it!

I have actually had one of these for a few months now, mine was created by Cale Vinson, not sure if that is the same person who created this one though.

Cale Vinson said...

This one is not mine. :)

I finished my version in January 2007. Used it continually from then on, gave it to a couple of friends, but never put it on sale.

I should also point out that mine is only semi-automatic. For each desired pose (stand, walk, sit, whatever), you position the skirt manually using the edit controls. You do this just once. The script then moves the skirt into those positions automatically, as you change poses.

If SensiDress has removed the need for manual adjustment completely, my hat goes off to them. :)

This is a wonderful idea, and an awesome script! I'd like to talk about it in one of my magazine article, is it possible?
Well, anyway I'll contact you in-world as soon as I can ta talk about it!
