Potentially Asked Questions
The heck is a "critter?"
It's the quasi-species that I developed over the course of the past few decades as my fursona. There is some sort of lore behind it although none of it's very serious. You can see one version of it on my Weasyl character page.
You can think of it as a gene-smashed human with some material-shifting capabilities, if that's what you're into.
Okay but like, why?
Why four ears? Why four eyes? Nobody ever questions those things.
So anyway, the character design started as a porcupine, and most porcupines have two sets of mammary glands, so I figured for absolute realism, so should the character. And it just kinda stuck.
What colors and materials are included in the package?
At the time of this writing, there's a matrix of five materials (skin, latex, plush, glittery-vinyl, and metal) with four color schemes (purple, paisley, polkadots, and calico), plus gold and silver.
What about the other things shown in the product banner?
The plaid variant is my own fursona, and I use it to me with. As such, it is not for sale.
Other materials are just meant as demonstrations of what's possible with a little work, and also require obtaining additional shaders which I do not have the rights to redistribute. I'm a fan of this ice/glass shader and this lava lamp shader (although the latter is very hard on other peoples' framerates, so use it sparingly).
The package comes with comprehensive documentation on adding your own materials, and the avatar is set up to make adding more materials as easy as possible with the current VRChat SDK.
