What do Users Want? or, Who are MH Users?

Discussions about user contributed assets. This is a good place to request new assets, as well as requesting support on existing assets that have been downloaded from the user contributions repository.

I wonder if the best thing to do in makehuman's future is not to hope for a large asset library to be created, but to create/improve more pipeline tools for the human model+rig to be exported to a wide variety of programs. The makehuman CC0 license is a huge plus when it comes to using it as a base for editing.

Can we have both? MH is great for its flexibility when creating models is concerned, something not possible in well-known proprietary tools (I personally don't like models in Poser or DAZ, they seem too glam and doll-like to me), but it falls short when choosing clothing, hairstyles etc. I think we can have the best from both worlds, if the tools become easy enough for actual artists to use.

.mhclo-files are pure text. I couldn't find any further information, than the basemesh version. Including further information about the mesh used would be valid a feature request.

it could be forced somewhat by using the notes/tags thing

maybe do Gender |Age |Ethnic triple as one of the later tags (so a standard base would be N|25|3,3,3)
