Pros, Neutral Notes, and Cons

Other things of note to consider that haven’t been mentioned above.

Pros

  • The UV Map is the same as the female HDPRO heads. This means skins that are made for the female HDPRO heads will also work on the male ones. This naturally gives not only more skin options, but also makeups, scars, tattoos, etc. Other skins may work too, so demo anything you like!
  • While you can already see them above, it’s worth mentioning the shape sliders that are part of the HUD. These sliders are independent of the tradition shape sliders, letting you adjust your eyes, nose, lips, and jaw even more closely. You can also save the tweaks you make, and even export them to send to others.
  • 4 ear shapes are included. This means fantasy avatars who like the pointy eared look don’t have to purchase third party ears. The ears also animate based on how you’re walking, flying, etc. It’s really fun to play with!
  • The materials options are really nice. The wrinkles are some of my favorite I’ve seen on a head so far.

Neutral Notes

  • The eyes are completely redesigned and pretty in depth. They’re gorgeous even when zoomed in up close.
  • The facial animations do a good job of bringing the whole face into play. The animations are an exaggerated style which could be a pro or a con depending on your preferences. Some of them remind me of Disney princess expressions which I find adorable.
  • There are Pro and Basic options for the lashes. Basic are tintable, and Pro have materials. Clicking the lash option you’ve selected will cycle through four colors.
  • The head, teeth, eyes, and facelight are all one object instead of four separate ones. This can be a pro or a con depending on your preferences.

Cons

  • If you’re used to CATWA’s previous HUDs you’ll be learning a new one. That said, it’s a sleek style that is easy to catch on to once you know what you’re doing.
  • Some of the options in the HUD aren’t very obvious at first. For example clicking the same lash option multiple times to change lash color when using Pro lashes.
