Fiore recently released their much anticipated first bento head. Her name is Alura and she is quite gorgeous. Here is some more information about the head:
- Price: The head currently costs L$4100. I recommend you pick up a free demo at the Fiore mainstore prior to your purchase.
- Appliers: Alura is currently compatible with Fiore-exclusive appliers only. Fiore released two new appliers upon Alura’s intial release. Previous Fiore customers can still apply their favorite non-bento appliers to the new Bento head. Make sure, however, to get the updated versions of said appliers via the redelivery terminal at the Fiore mainstore.
- Layers: The head has 3 tattoo layers but since there is currently an alpha glitch, layers 2 and 3 are still unstable. Fiore recommends using these layers with caution as most other residents may not be able to see what’s on these layers. They also add that clicking your head will make the layers visable sometimes, but is not a sure fix.
- HUDs: The head comes with a main HUD as well as a tinting HUD.
The main HUD has the following features: adjusting eye colour, lashes, hairbase, visibility of layers and animations. The tinting HUD allows you to tint the 3 tattoo layers. However, make sure to use these layers with caution; the alpha glitch causes layers 2 and 3 to be unstable (as previously stated).
- Animations: The head comes with a total of 30 basic non-looped facial animations and 3 blink speeds. The head was recently updated with a couple of looped animations too. Furthermore, Fiore creator Sanya Bilavio stated on her Flickr that they are currently working on an advanced facial AO, which will be sold seperately upon release.
- Eyes: The head comes with a pair of rigged eyes. These eyes are omega compatible.
- Developers kit: Fiore has included a free developers kit that you can attain via the main HUD.
In case you are having issues with the head, make sure to take a look at the Fiore Help Flickr post. You can also join the Fiore Creators & Fans group in-world for troubleshooting, updates and general discussions about the brand and its releases.
Please note that I am still wearing an older version of the head. The head was recently updated to version 1.3. Everyone who has previously purchased Alura is highly advised to delete any older versions of the head and continue to only use the most recently updated versions.
