UUID in MakeHuman

Postby SaltyCowdawg » Sun Nov 24, 2019 7:24 pm

What is the UUID actually used for in MakeHuman? I've started reflexively adding UUIDs right before I save a model just because the field is there but not sure why....

It is mainly to tell two assets with the same name apart, and allow renaming assets without breaking characters.

For the Hunan Mesh the UUID doesn't provide a real function atm. Perhaps we should make the line editable so one can use for other purposes, e.g. adding a version number, etc...
