With the avatar looking correct again and still using the ‘male’ toggle (hooray!), I am building animations. The basic ones will work no matter how I fiddle with the rest of the rigging (such as if I decide to rerig the eyebones to eyes, and not the ears) so I’m just getting those built to let my helper test them. Once he has those, I’ll fiddle with the best way to do the eyes and ears.
Then we’ll make a pretty HUD. Speaking of which, if there’s anything you all think would be useful in a HUD, or a feature you always wanted, feel free to respond here and I’ll consider all requests.
