SKING Katena Regular (& Other SKING BOM Bodies) | The Mesh Directory

This is an overview of the SKING Katena Regular mesh body for Second Life avatars. Almost all the information also applies to other SKING bodies however the photos are only of Katena Regular, and the list is what comes with Katena Regular. Other bodies may have slightly different content. There are older versions of the body that are designed for appliers. They are not the current up to date products and as such the content in this post does not reflect those bodies. This is only for the BOM version. For more mesh heads and bodies head on over to The Mesh Directory.

Pros and Cons

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

Pros

  • SKING Katena has a unique look and style. This is especially noticeable on the calves, thighs, and butt.
  • It’s great for those who like exaggerated curves. For those who want super exaggerated breasts as well they may want to check out the Katena Bimbo version.
  • Out of the bodies made in this style, SKING has the most support from other creators.
  • A basic Omega head applier is included for each of the skin tones. They are not detailed by any means, but they’re a decent starter if you don’t have another option yet.

Cons

  • It does not include hands or feet. SKING recommends Slink hands/feet or Vista hands to fill these needs. If using the Vista hands make sure to also grab their free BOM HUD)
  • A shape is not included. This means you’ll have to make your own or purchase a third party shape.
  • It’s difficult to get a realistic butt without purchasing a third part deformer (SKING recommends the Must Trade Booty Enhancer)
  • Alpha cuts are controlled via separate alpha system layers instead of via HUD like many are used to.
