Where are the maps?

Where are the maps for mesh?

Mesh is actually something entirely differen, and yet the same as sculpts. All sculpts are mesh, but not all meshes are sculpts. Confused yet? It can be tricky, but the bottom line is that sculpts are brought into Second Life using sculpt maps. Meshes though are brought into Second Life using a format called COLLADA which is *entirely* different.

Because it's a whole new format, and all new way that the grid software uses the mesh, there are no sculpt maps included EVER. Instead, the mesh arrives to you as an object. How many objects are included will vary depending on the item but it'll look typically like a standard box in your inventory just like anything else.
