Frequently Asked Questions
As stated in my TOS, please do not purchase one of my models without knowing how to upload it! I currently do not offer uploads & don't have time to individually teach. You will open the unity version currently supported by VRChat, import VCC / the SDK depending on how you're doing it, the poiyomi version recommended on the model page, any other shaders listed & only then should you import the model! They will always come as a unity scene prefab which should be double clicked to open.
If you are having a friend upload it for you, please let me know first either through dms on discord, contacting me through here or opening a ticket in the Sister's of Salem discord.
There's also plenty of more indepth tutorials out there, including putting your own avatar through unity. I recommend any of the following to get started:
Sippbox | Ask Amber | Miss Molly | Nessy ( QUEST )
** Please keep in mind vrchat requirements are constantly changing, therefore some of the tutorials might be out of date as to what you need ( vrcsdk, vcc, physbones vs dynamic bones, etc. ) but the principle is essentially the same & some are more in depth than others!
They should ALWAYS be mentioned somewhere on the product page, especially if there's special shaders involved. The only exception is for assets / textures that do not come with a set scene.
For a base line, it's always going to be poiyomi unless it's a quest avatar, pro or not depends entirely on you ( + if you want dps penetrators. ) As well as the latest sdk which should be included in VCC or can be found on the VRChat website by logging in.
- Check to make sure your blueprint is detached on the right hand side.
- Check for errors showing up in the console, usually you can figure out what's causing the issue from there!
- If your unity is crashing whenever you try to upload make sure future proofing is turned OFF.
- If there are multiple avatars in the project, make sure you are hiding any that you aren't uploading.
- Check to make sure you aren't missing scripts, ( i.e. having an avatar that uses dynamic bones without dynamic bones in the project. )
- If your problem isn't answered here, please check out JustSleightly's unity help / error list by clicking here.
It will clearly state if it is quest compatible on the page or have an option to purchase it, if there is no mention of it, it is not quest compatible. This goes for green rated models as well.
Any of my assets are allowed to be used per my terms of service for any of the aforementioned. As long as you personally have purchased it & abide by tos by not making it publicly accessible then go wild! I just have very limited knowledge of it & won't be able to help.
If you're curious about a specific avatar however, feel free to message me. It will depend entirely on the assets used from others as some allow use elsewhere & others do not! I personally do not mind but will be abiding by the TOS of assets used. ♡
TPS is Poiyomi Pro shader's version of DPS, it has many more features & is still compatible with DPS, it just doesn't activate all the fun bits & bobs unless you use TPS. Either way, DPS or TPS you will need to use the Poiyomi Pro shader for it to work!
As a general rule --- usually no. I might take smaller commissions on a case by case basis, If you have a particularly unique request feel free to message me & we'll see if I have the inspiration. Please don't get your hopes up though or feel bad if I decline! Price would depend on the time, effort, license ( personal or commercial ) & for assets / graphic templates / textures whether or not I'd be able to sell it separately on my store afterwards.
I am not currently taking full avatar or vtuber commissions / do not plan to.
I use Blender, Substance Painter, Photoshop, Adobe Premiere Pro, Zbrush, Marmoset Toolbag & Procreate for most things.
I'm essentially self taught, I've had a few friends teach me things but mainly I've just been using blender in particular for around 4 years now & relying heavily on the internet. I'm also genuinely horrible at teaching so all I can recommend is searching up things on youtube, remember just because it isn't a vrchat avatar tutorial doesn't mean it isn't applicable! ♡
