The problem is that the old algorithm did not check to see whether or not the overlapping pixels belong to the same mesh group. As such, vertices from multiple mesh groups are being "smoothed" together. It is oftentimes not the desired behavior as most seams occur within the same group (ie. body mesh).

I have implemented a quick fix to address this issue.

The issue -

Some meshes as the one shown above have parts that are made of multiple mesh objects. The transparent gown for example has 2 layers on top of one another with overlapping vertices. They belong to separate mesh groups (WGT_Body and WGT_Body2). With the old algorithm, vertices from both groups would be smoothed as if they were one object, which causes issues as depicted below -

The normal vectors are all messed up now.

To combat this problem, I have added a new control to only smooth overlapping vertices within the same mesh group, which will prevent problems like this from occurring.

Here's a model with seams

The old version (V0.3.8) would smooth every pixel as if they all belonged to one big object which causes the gown to look weird

The new version (V0.3.9) includes a new control that allows the user to perform seam smoothing ONLY for overlapping pixels within the same group

There's still a little bit of an issue on the bra area as circled in the picture above, but it is a more elegant solution that makes sense.

Note: When using "Seam Smoothing," if the new "Smooth Within Own Group" is unchecked, the behavior is the same as in V0.3.8 where every pixel is checked against each other for seams to smooth. I recommend only checking this new check box if you run into issues similar to the above situation.

I am trying out the poll functionality which seems like a great way to gather some feedback. Please take a moment to leave your opinion.

Both versions are hot! I personally prefer the ultra sexy to the ultra transparent, but I'd definitely use both!

I think I can throw in the ultra transparent version as well (which is an inside joke with the MoP :bush:), but personally, I prefer the original look with panties, lol.

Thanks for all the feedback thus far. I made some more updates to the mod to get rid of most of the clipping issues that plague the earlier versions.

I also experimented with a version that has a bit of a nip poke, which, unfortunately, is not very obvious.

Excellent work! These mods are amazing! I'm especially liking the pokies. The subtlety of them is prefect. I find that it puts me off a bit of the effect is too exaggerated

Kasumi Ultra Sexy Schoolgirl Uniform - official release v3.7.5
I have made both bottomless and panties versions available by popular demand :bush:

The version with panties has a slight nip poke to make up for the lack of view, so to speak :bush:

There are still some minor issues, but according to my ever diligent beta testers IshidaCrop and Siframe, they are within acceptable margins :)

To install - the easiest way is to use Ink Reshuffle to replace her existing DLC001 outfit.

Popular demand...? LET'S DO THIS! :D

Marie fans, form an orderly line behind me!

Stunning work with the Kasumi outfits Timmy. Absolutely love them! And thank you for being so considerate of the community. Releasing one version was an absolute treat, but releasing more options to please the fans...that's above and beyond. You, Sir, are an absolute gent.

I decided to go one step further and (almost) complete the Marie Uniform mod. Now it is as if she had stolen Kasumi's wardrobe :bush:

To all you panties haters :wink:: It's actually quite a lot more work to seamlessly integrate Kasumi's panties onto Marie's body, lol.

I dream of the day that Team Ninja finally realises how much better Timmy is at designing costumes than they are, offers him a job and then pays him to completely redesign the entire DOA5 wardrobe, before they announce the imminent release of DOA5:LR(ADE).

...Angry Dick Edition, in case you were wondering...
