Configuring a complex (cloth) outfit
In some cases the automatic setup is not quite enough to set up a complex outfit. Let's look at Lachexia's Dress Lumi as an example.
This tutorial assumes you've already gone through the simple clothing tutorial, and will skip over some of the details covered there.
We start out having dropped the Dress Lumi prefab onto the avatar, and having hidden the parts of the
original avatar's clothing that conflict with the new outfit (namely, Cloth, and setting
As you can see, there's a ton of extra objects in this outfit. The automatic setup described in the simple clothing tutorial will create the Merge Armature component for us, but the rest of the objects require a bit more setup. That being said, that's still the right place to start:
Next up, we need to set up bone proxies to get all those collider objects to move along with their
base bones. To start, we'll select all the "Hips_Collider" objects and add an
MA Bone Proxy to all of
them at once. Under "Target", drag-and-drop the Hips object from the original avatar.
Note that "Attachment Mode" will automatically update to "As child; keep position" when you do this.
Go ahead and do the same for the other bones/colliers as well. With that, the cloth colliders should work:
Finally, set up blendshape sync components for Skirt and Tops:
You could fully automate the setup of this outfit, by adding a Merge Animator component which would set up the base Body blendshapes (torso_thin => 100, elbow_off => 0, bra_off => 100), and disable Cloth. However, this could interfere with outfit changer configurations, so it's not necessarily recommended.
