(if you’re looking for a texture dev kit for making skins and/or tattoos, this page is not for you. You can grab the texture dev kit freely from the vendor underneath the Centaur vendors in-store)
The dev kit for the centaur, CenTEENYtaur and CenPETItaur are available as .blend files.
The dev kit is available for commercial use ONLY (please do not ask for the dev kit if you only intend to fiddle about making stuff for yourself and your friends). There is no fee for having the dev kit kit but you do need to own the Jinx Centaur.
Please understand that whilst SL may be a hobby for you, it is my business and my livelihood. You may think that the hoops I expect you to jump through to apply for the dev kit are over the top or excessively anal – I understand your point – especially if this is your hobby – however, the reason I put so many steps and requirements in this process is because I have been stung in the past. People stealing my content in efforts to sabotage my business, and people signing the dev kit agreement and promptly breaking the terms of that agreement because it didn’t fit their needs or because they didn’t actually read it before they signed it. So…please don’t hate on me for being thorough – if I sound bitter, yep….that’s what happens when people take advantage.
All that said, a good few people do have the dev kit and abide by the agreement they signed and we all get along swimmingly. Those selling accessories for the Jinx Centaur may be invited to place a vendor in the Jinx store alongside the Centaurs (don’t be offended if you don’t get invited….there is only so much space available). If your stuff is good, I will be more than happy to help promote it to our customers.
I do expect you to know how to mesh and rig an item in Blender and/or make animations in Blender. If you don’t, please learn to BEFORE requesting a centaur dev kit. Please share examples of your work from Blender in the appropriate field in the form below. The kit is ONLY available for Blender and assets from the .blend file may NOT be transported to other 3D modeling software. I do expect a certain level of skill and quality of product.
In order to apply for the dev kit you will need to:
- Fill in the form below as a start.
- If accepted you will be required to sign an agreement with your real life name and address and signature. It is a legally binding contract.
- Complete a few questions after signing the agreement to show that you read it and understood it.
If you break the terms of the agreement your licence to create items for the Jinx centaurs may be revoked. Any content made to sell after a licence has been revoked may result in a DMCA being submitted to Linden Lab.
