Hypothetically, would it be possible to...

1. Become VIP on an alternate account.
2. Create your product on this alternate account, keep it unpublished and
hidden.
3. Gift the product to your main account.
4. Have the product visible to others in the room when equipped.

Is this possible, or does it first need to be fully published to the store
and gone through peer review?

If the product is hidden, another person would only see it on an avatar.
They couldn't buy it or use it. Maybe not even see it. Since well it's hidden. lol
BUT I think it shows the creator? I'm not sure ^.^

on imvu the icon will come us red and say hidden product -1 credit or something
Could totally be wrong I am 50/50 on the red icon. :kat_emoji18:

@Emilyelixer


Unless IMVU recently made some changes, a hidden product is still completely usable by anyone who already owns it. Of course you have to unhide it to gift it if I remember correctly.

@SecondChance99


Unless I'm missing something this is pretty much one of the main ways you submit a BM product.

I think nobody will be able to see it except for yourself unless your product passes the peer review,even if it fails the peer review only yourself can see it,for the other users it will appear as blank,based on the bad experience i had on the old account of mine.

Seems like these are conflicting answers. Just to be less ambiguous, I of
course mean-- if a product is not published on the shop, is the 3D mesh
rendered and visible in the scene for the person who does not own the
actual product (aka a visitor to the room).

Thanks for your replies.

Yes, hidden product will be displayed in a room. It will only not be visible in the shop or in the products in scene page.

As far as I am aware there is no way to prevent a product from being rendered (not including opacity maps). That would be kind of pointless unless the product is less than honorable (I don't mean BM products). If you don't want a product to be seen at all either don't upload it or only use it in a private chat.

True, unless they are using my T3DE.

Yeah,T3DE makes a lot of stuff accessible as far as I heard because I never used it,but when it comes to the basic IMVU client,I think only the creator can see the stuff which isn't published but not the others,based on what I know.:)

I am not sure if this is true, I have hidden products (that pass peer review) that I use and my friends can still see them :o
I also have room items I have made for my club that I also hidden and it works for other as well. But those passed peer review
and just hidden.


I am totally sorry if I am wrong tho >.<
