How to apply for the Cinnamon and Chai Developers Kit
If you have previously applied for and been approved for a Slink Deveopers Kit, you will be added to the mailing list that we will use to send the Cinnamon and Chai kits and details. The download link for the non-SL component is included in this kit. You will also be able to deliver it to yourself if you misplaced the inworld kit by visiting the store and clicking the Kit Redelivery sign.
If you have not previously applied for the Slink (and Cinnamon&Chai) developers kit and been given access to the discord channel, please put in an application here.

Converting textures to a new UV can be daunting and time-consuming. I have made it super simple in the below tutorial.
Here is another method to convert your skins to Chai and Cinnamon. It’s not quite as easy and fast as the above one, but maybe it suits you better!
How to bake textures with transparency (stockings, freckles, scars, tattoos etc) from the SLUV to Chai and Cinnamon using Blender and Photoshop, and the UDIM Baker plugin.
Cinnamon and Chai only use applier layers for a few things. Below is a tutorial to help you create skin materials appliers (shiny and bump) once you have converted them using the above methods!
You have always been able to create nail appliers for Slink, and those HUD’s will also work on Cinnamon and Chai’s nails. I have redesigned the method for creating a HUD and generating the config data to make it much faster and easier. Read below.
Also included in the Cinnamon and Chai kit – for convenience – are new scripts and help for creating lashes and HD lip textures for the Slink Visage heads, which are a perfect match for Cinnamon and Chai.
About Your Branding
In order for your customers to know whether you are creating for Cinnamon and Chai, you should include certain wording in your vendors, and in your product names. Please feel free to use the examples below to create names for your products that will make sense to our customers!
Product names in folders
For mesh Creations –
[yourbrand] name and colour of product [CinnChai] OR [yourbrand] name and colour of product [Cinnamon&Chai]
For skins and other textures you need to differentiate between Cinnamon and Chai or your customers will look all kinds of weird!
[yourbrand] name and colour of product [Cinnamon] OR [yourbrand] name and colour of product [Chai]
System layers cannot be [Cinnamon & Chai], the UV templates are incompatible.
On your vendor you should either include either of the the pink Cinnamon&Chai logos which you can find in your kit, or you should include the words Cinnamon&Chai on your list of supported body parts.
It is recommended to use both names so that customers wearing either will know what is supported.
