Dragon Issues-Neck Attachment

Q: Why is the v1.3 neck attachment aligned wrong?

The neck attachment slot was added to the official Second Life viewer in version 3.2.4 in October 2011. If you're using a version earlier than this, or a custom viewer that doesn't support the neck attachment slot, fear not! It's possible to add this by editing a text file.

Before you start, shut down Second Life.

Note: If you're uncomfortable with editing this file, you can right click -> save as on the following file and simply replace it. This is the avatar_lad.xml that comes with version 3.2.6 of the SL viewer: avatar_lad.xml


Step 1
Locate the avatar_lad.xml file. It should be inside your Second Life install. Searching for the file name if you can't find it manually is the easiest option.

The default Second Life install location for Windows should look something like this:

C:\Program Files\SecondLife\character\avatar_lad.xml

If you have 64-bit windows, it should be in "Program Files (x86)."


Step 2)
Right click the file, and select Open With -> Wordpad. (Opening it in Notepad is possible, but the file uses Unix-based line endings, and will appear to be mangled in Notepad.)


Step 3)
Search for "id="38"" or scroll down to that section.


Step 4)
below that section (after "visible_in_first_person="true" />") add the following:

    <attachment_point
       id="39"
       group="6"
       pie_slice="1"
       name="Neck"
       joint="mNeck"
       position="0 0 0"
       rotation="0 0 0"
       visible_in_first_person="true" />

  	<attachment_point
       id="40"
       group="6"
       pie_slice="2"
       name="Avatar Center"
       joint="mRoot"
       position="0 0 0"
       rotation="0 0 0"
       visible_in_first_person="true" />

It should look like this:


Step 5)
Save and quit, and start up your viewer. Neck attachment slots should now work fine.
