Pros, Neutral Notes, and Cons
Other things of note to consider that haven’t been mentioned above.
- Rebirth’s bodies are billed as all in one bodies. You’ll find they are extremely versatile. You can be a child, teen, adult, or anywhere in between all with one body. The breast sizes are all controlled via HUD as well, so you can very easily be a flat chested adult without any extra purchases. With the full version you can even swap between masculine and feminine with the same body.
- Rebirth Eden Male comes with a vagina option, which is wonderfully inclusive for those who prefer a vagina with a masculine body.
- The feet animations are revolutionary. When swapping between flat, high heel, etc the feet actually move into that position instead of just snap into place. Rebirth compatible shoes also move with the animation. You can see it in action here. It’s definitely worth checking out.
- The creators are very friendly and helpful. I sent them a notecard and heard back within 48 hours. In addition they kept in touch and made sure any questions I had were answered.
- *VIP members can get the body 50% off while wearing the group tag. You get VIP group access by purchasing a head in Rebirth’s RoX line.
- The Marketplace has a variety of products available for Rebirth.
- Rebirth’s products are aimed at family style avatars, allowing you to make a variety of ages with one purchase.
- In order to be so versatile the body is rigged in a very different way compared to other bodies. Your current shapes will have to be adjusted to work with Rebirth bodies. In addition you’ll find longer hairs don’t sit flat against the chest, but instead out further from the body than expected. You’ll want to use hair that doesn’t go below the shoulder in the front.
- While there are other brands making clothing for Rebirth, it’s nowhere near as easy to find third party outfits as it is for the bigger name brands.
