Pros, Neutral Notes, and Cons
Other things of note to consider that haven’t been mentioned above.
- INITHIUM hosts a monthly event where you can easily find products designed for Kario.
- The included skins also cover the neck, making it easier for you to blend another face skin into the body skin if you don’t want to use the one it comes with.
- At release Kario already had various clothing options and other third party support.
- On release Kario was simply a bulky, muscular body. The addition of the flatter torso allows it to play nice with more slender shapes too.
- The lack of alpha cuts in the HUD encourages designers to make their own alphas for each product. This means they can make clothing that fits in any way and isn’t limited to preset cuts. It also reduces the body’s overall complexity.
- Kario’s bulkier options can be tricky for some new users to shape to their tastes. This is a super mild con, and one that can be mitigates by purchasing a third party shape or tweaking the included ones as you see fit.
