KZK Discord Digest #5 [Week of Jan 11 - Jan 17]

Blau Says...


You may not resell the flat (premade) skins, even if altered.
If you get a Devkit / Paid PSDs and have alt accounts (for stores, etc) you intend to use the assets with, please make sure you let Kat know.
You don’t need to sign the contract for the Paid PSDs, just the Devkit.
Devkit contract can be signed digitally.
Kat’s got his software migrated over to his new rig. Direwolf bugfixes next.

Also, outside of posting these, I never get on Tumblr.
If you need to contact me (or any of the other KZK staff honestly), do so on Discord or SL.
Tumblr messages will likely be ignored.

7:40 PM] Kat: @everyone Hey folks. Spent most of today getting caught up with RL obligations that got pushed aside due to work/con prep, so I ran out of time to do anything in SL, but I’ll be fresh and ready to go first thing tomorrow! I’ll be handling contract stuff, exchanges, and sorting through the massive list of suggestions/fixes needed for the direwolf so I can set up a roadmap for the direwolf 1.01 update. Thank you all for your incredible support and patience! :heart: (Despite sleeping almost 10 hours last night I’m still so exhausted rofl)


Jan 12 2019

11:24 AM] Kat: @everyone If you have purchased a devkit, or the PSDs for the direwolf, and you use separate accounts to manage your store separetly from your personal affairs, then I need to know. This’ll be useful in quickly putting to rest any false accusations made against you. Thank you.

11:36 AM] Kat: @everyone I would like to make sure anyone whose signed the Direwolf Devkit contract that editing the pre-existing textures on the Direwolf is not an acceptable use as defined by the Devkit license. Clause A beneath ‘YOU MAY’ states specifically that you’re allowed to edit anything included with the Devkit, defined as the product. The flattened, default 'skins’ included with the Direwolf’s HUD are not part of that. All textures sold must be derived from the PSDs, using your own markings.

2:18 PM] Kat: @everyone Our wonderful friends over at Roarbeast are celebrating the release of their newest avatar, the Smolbeast Eastern Dragon! Its tiny, its adorable, and its coming out today!  Join Stickman and help him celebrate, today at 2PM SLT at the Furry Fashion mall/club! :heart:

9:16 PM] Kat: @everyone So, now that the trip is over, and its back to the usual. Part of what I need to get done is migrating over to Helix 1.0–the new rig given to me so generously by my family for christmas. Its an absolute monster of a rig that’ll let me get things done faster and with less fussing. To do so, I’ve got to deactivate things. Atm I’m waiting for the new intall of zbrush to ldownload, so I’ve got a while to kill. I’ll be taking the next couple of hours to process some devkit and psd kit requests! reminder that if you’ve yet to do so, please carefully review the contract, and remember, it is LEGALLY binding. It can be signed digitally, since I know most folks don’t really have printers anymore.

TL;DR: Yo, you want the devkit? I’m here, so lets do it.

[9:43 PM] Kat: @everyone Btw you don’t need to sign the contract if you’re just buying the psds. apologies for lack of proper communication on this! <3’


Jan 13 2019

6:46 PM] Kat: @everyone So today I migrated over my storage drives, got all my software moved over and activated on Helix, and am in the process of reinstalling most of my games and getting everything configured. One major hurdle tackled! Next up, Direwolf update. :smiley:


Jan 14 2019

[1:55 PM] Kat: @everyone Please do not share links to websites or contents that allow the illegitimate acquisition of copywritten content. This includes movies, music, tv shows, nd subscriber only art. Thank you.

KZK Discord Digest #4 [Week of Jan 4 - Jan 10]

Blau Says...


Kat is back from travel and will start tackling devkit / PSD requests & bugfixes tomorrow.
Devkit files are not to be shared with folks who have not signed the contract.
Need the Direwolf Public PSD? Here’s a shortlink to the Google Drive folder:
Public PSDs are not for commercial use. 
Public rig dummy will be available soon.
Please clean up after yourselves in the sandbox.


Jan 4, 2019

[9:42 AM] Blau: @everyone Mirror from SL, via @Straylight
Nothing makes us happier than watching everyone make new things with our avatars. We’re delighted to be able to give you a sandbox to work in. Please remember to pick up after yourself when you’ve finished though. When I find the sandbox full of things left behind, it makes me sad. ;)


Jan 5, 2019

[8:18 PM] Kat: @everyone hey folks! I’m about to watch the metal cover band Knights of the Round perform some sick final fantasy metal covers, but I wanted to post this link that’ll make a lot of you happy! it’s the public psds for the direwolf. Remember that these files are NOT for commercial/commission use. If you want to sell anything you make, you’ll need to buy the psd license from me. (Due to the con, incsnt exactly process those atm so please be patient with me!) Many thanks to @Chronic for being my remote helping hand!

[8:21 PM] Kat: @everyone keep in mind if you do plan to use these files for commercial purposes, you can at least get a head start and get the payment sorted out as soon as im back. Do keep in mind that the public files do NOT include the fur detailing layers


Jan 6, 2019

[8:27 PM] Kat: @everyone magfest has come to an exhausting end! Tonight I am surrounded by wonderful friends with good food, warm coffee and fantastic speed runs. Just the thing I needed to help wind down from the last several weeks of exhaustion. I got curious and went to the marketplace and it’s so exciting to see all the fantastic mods you’ve all been working on! Tomorrow, once I’m back at my fiances place, I’ll have plenty of time to pass out the link for the commercial psds. I’ll let you guys know when!


Jan 7, 2019

[9:30 PM] Kat: @everyone need I remind those whose signed the direwolf devkit contract that it is NOT to be sent to anyone who has NOT signed the contract. I’m already getting reports of people making content  using the kit who do not have rights to it. I will not tolerate this.


Jan 8, 2019

[5:12 AM] Blau: @everyone Also, if you’re waiting for your Devkit / Paid PSD stuff, Kat is still traveling and he’ll get to you as soon as he gets a few minutes. Thank you all for being so patient :heart:
[5:12 AM] Blau: @everyone Also, Wumpus says we have over 600 people in here now. That’s awesome! Hi everyone!!


Jan 9, 2019

[10:39 PM] Kat: @everyone the awoo has landed!


Jan 10, 2019

11:59 AM] Kat: @everyone so after a 3 and a half hour drive home from the airport and going comatose for 9 hours, I’m awake! But unfortunately I’ve got plenty to attend to. Namely a bunch of tasks I couldn’t tackle before departing. Not to worry, I will be giving myself some proper downtime to recover from the con and once ive had a day at most to myself to decompress, I’ll start getting the update going for the dires and take care of the long list of psd and devkit requests that piled up in my absense.

December 26, 2018 @ 11:32 pm

KZK Discord Digest #2 [Week(ish) of Dec 21 - Dec 26...

Blau Says...


Direwolf status: Tail-end of scripting / beginning of alpha testing. All that’s left afterward is beta testing & packaging.
Direwolf release plan: Before end of year! (Exact day not picked yet, but it’s less than a week from New Year’s!)
Preorder devkits (devkit + fatpack) are still available & will be taken care of during beta testing, when Kat has a few hours to spare. 
Direwolf prices WILL NOT be changing post launch.
Refunds / exchanges for the Direwolf WILL END after launch. They’ll then have the same policy as all our other avs (no refund/exchange except in case of SL/server error).
Preorder bonuses (Direwolf plushy av & 2 free skins) will ship a little later than the Dires themselves (soon as Kat gets home from his trip).


Dec 22, 2018

[10:39 AM] Blau: Yo folks. Been seeing it asked a lot- the direwolf price ***will not*** be increasing after release.

HOWEVER. once it releases, refunds and exchanges WILL end (ie. Same policy as our other avs). If you are debating that get it taken care of soon.

We will give you guys advance notice beforehand. Cheers @everyone


Dec 25, 2018

[1:48 PM] Kat: @everyone A Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! Its just barely the afternoon and I’m already two shots in and feeling it. I hope you’re all enjoying your days, and I hope that no matter how you celebrate, whether its with friends, family, or alone (For the record, I’m absolutely hugging you right now if you are, Behemoth cuddles anyone?) Just remember to do so responsibly. I hope your potatos are perfectly mashed, your ham warmed to that deliciously juicy temparture and no one glitterbombed you. Happy Holidays from all of us at Kinzart :heart: (My stomach is empty so i miggght  be a little buzzed already ;D..I dont drink like i used to haha)


Dec 26, 2018

[5:56 PM] Kat: @everyone So I’m definitely on track to get the Dires out by the end of the year. Today i solved a major bug with the HUD that’s been bugging the ever loving fuck out of me for the past few years, which has me in a pretty good mood. With the HUD working as expected, I’m FINALLY able to get to the inifial alpha testing. This phase is usually pretty short, with me just doing  cursory once-over on the avatar. Once I get the scripts into the avatars and test those, the av will go into proper beta testing. That isn’t to say we haven’t been testing lots of things along the way, this just means that it’ll get tested more broadly internally so we can find any major bad behavior. Testing is all that’s left before its packed and ready to go.  Like before, be sure to lend us any spare energy so we can get this spirit bomb of a project done! :heart:

[6:01 PM] Kat: @everyone Now, since 99% of this time has been spent getting the Dires done and in good working condition, it means the preorder bonus will be late to the show–but that’s fine! it’ll mean I’ll have more time to make it as cute as it can be! and I’ll also take that time (once I’m back from my trip), to get the Garmr and Helhund skins done (remember that these will be free gifts as thanks for everyones patience!)  Once I am back from my trip, I’ll take a day to relax, play a game maybe, before focusing on doing any MAJOR bug fixes on the Dire (one or two are bound to slip thru!) and get the plush/skins done to send out! :heart:

[6:04 PM] Kat: @everyone SORRY FOR NOTICE SPAM! but lots to cover as we approach that special day! Naturally many of you are asking ‘Kat if the av’s coming out soon, can I please get the dev kit/my preorder changed?’ The answer is Let me get them into beta first, then I’ll have a few hours that I can handle all of this in bulk! I wil be honoring the cheaper bulk price for the dev kit preorder bundle, so if you wish to get the dev kit for 2k less, (which includes a fatpack preorder), That’ll be the best time to do that. Thank you all, seriously! This project has been an absolute beast to overcome but we’re so close!
