Sorry for the tardy reply on this, but I was out of town visiting family:
* I agree that the mesh wiki documentation is a mess. I have done some
work on the 3ds Max page, since I use that program, and have it on my to
do list to work on the rest of the mesh wiki pages with the exception of
the other 3D program specific ones (since I don't know those programs
and their quirks).
* You can download a set of 2D skin and clothing templates, and 3D
avatar model templates I made from
Consider it beta at this point. I am still working on the avatar itself
that they are used with. Based on discussions with users, forum posts,
etc, I have about half a dozen updates and improvements to make to it.
Also, the mesh development team is still working on the viewer and
server code, so it's a bit premature to make any kind of "reference",
since features might be rendered obsolete or moot. I have no problem
working on it in parallel with the viewer/server work, and having other
people contribute to it, or their own versions. I don't think any
single reference model will suit everyone, so likely it will end up more
of a library. My templates have been downloaded 218 times, so someone
out there is interested in them.
* I did a set of basic mesh prims for Blue Mars, and had it on my to do
list to import those to SL also. I will gladly donate them to a library
or collection. There are simple shapes not available with the original
SL prims, like 5, 6, and 8 sided prisms, which would be very nice to
have ready made for people who don't want to take the time to learn a 3D
program, but want to use mesh primitives to build with.
