Pros and Cons

Other pros and cons to consider that haven’t been mentioned above.


  • The HUDs are designed to be straightforward and easy to use.
  • Genus heads are popular enough to have a variety of designers making products for them.


  • While there are various neck options, the necks standard hasn’t been adopted yet. This isn’t generally a huge deal, but even blending with the Maitreya neck is still in beta.
  • While it does support BOM it does not come with any BOM layers.
  • Some of the animations are a bit buggy and require you to undeform your avatar to get back to normal. This will likely be fixed in the future.
