    Why do you do that?!?!?!?!?

    I don't have nearly as much as you guys, so either I'm not grabbing freebies fast enough or you guys are ballers ;) I recently did a tally of all my daz purchases as well as rendo and RDNA and was floored at how much was been spent in the last year. Ever since then I've be very careful about my purchases because I noticed I still haven't used a lot of the content I purchased. I've even declined to buy stuff during the PA sale that has been on my wishlist because I have a backlog of unused content and don't want to add to it.

    Maybe the PC sale will convince me to spend though, when stuff is ultra cheap it's hard to resist.

    I'm a little ashamed that my count is only 1212 and many of those are bundles. My purchasing has slowed down a bit as money has become tighter and RL expenses higher, but I still spend more than I probably should. And looking at the shinies from yesterday and today, I shall probably be buying something again. :-) and tomorrow is Thursday? Oh my poor CC. :lol:

    Why do you do that?!?!?!?!?

    Because I'm a glutton for punishment? Because I was a masochist in an earlier life? I don't know, pick one. ~shrugs~

    Oh, if we're counting freebies, I have... a lot lol. But mostly from sharecg and japanese websites

    You'll all notice I carefully didn't add up all the MONEY I spent on Daz3D products.. *snicker* I REALLY don't want to look at that. It is interesting to see that I'm in the middle of the road here when it comes to purchases.

    Are you saying what I was saying? Which is that people are buying way faster than they are rendering to a point it is impossible to catch up!

    Ok, I thought we were speaking the same language. Good to know I caught on sooner than later. I've got some other digital hobbies from a former life and I still haven't touched the surface of using all the content I bought. I keep swearing one day I'll get around to using that stuff one day (animations for games, music samples, sound effects etc)

    A few years ago, I realized that I was getting stuff that I would look at the promos, and say "that;s nice, I could use that in a render someday". But, I rarely used those items. Now when I look at something I think about it, and If I have a good Idea on how I will use it in a render (i.e. the item makes me want to make the render in my minds eye), then I will probably get it. Though there have been some items that I didn't get while on sale, that I really needed later and paid "full" price for.

    I definitely haven't bought much since the new web site went live for several reasons. At first I just didn't enjoy using the new web site at all, but it's better now (though I still don't like the forum color scheme - it will give me a headache rather quickly). With the change in how the PC vouchers worked, I was much less tempted to use them (and actually didn't use a couple of them), since I usually got PA items with them. Then, thanks to some of the mess with the new store, my PC membership lapsed when they (or actually the auto-renew) tried to use an expired credit card, and I haven't felt like spending an extra $30 to renew yet (DAZ did offer to let me renew my membership by purchasing a new membership then getting a refund for the extra $30 - unfortunately I was out of town without good internet service for a few weeks, and by the time I got back I felt like it had been too long to take them up on their offer). And finally, I used to get the occasional voucher for a gallery submission, which typically increased my purchases beyond the value of the voucher. But without the galleries, I don't have as much incentive to buy, both because there is less incentive to make a new render for a chance at a voucher, and because I often saw something that I "had" to have while going through the galleries.

    I'm not really complaining, I just realized that several issues with the new site have really affected my purchases here. I'm sure it's just a temporary thing, and will probably change once I have the incentive to renew my PC membership. Maybe with the annual PC sale (next month??) I'll renew, and spend a bit more, but I'm kind of saving up for when Carrara 8.5 is released.

    That sums it for me as well Dustrider.

    I just looked and I have about 25 gigs of daz of items not installed yet. 10 gigs of other purchased items, 20 gigs of freebies I haven't installed yet. With the smart content now and already having years of stuff installed and manually moved to make finding something that made sense everything is at a painful crossroads.

  • edited December 1969

    Yeah, I have to agree with the rest of you that there are a lot of things I've never used beyond a quick render right after buying it to see what it looked like. Of course, I have a LOT of things I want to do, an ever changing list of projects which need totally different assets that I'm (someday) going to get around to finishing. %-P

    Well, I avoided that problem with my spreadsheet - I refuse to use the AutoSum feature.

    Not bad for nearly 6 years LOL

    1049. I peaked financially seven years ago, when I was making almost three times what I'm making now. Most of those seven years have been pretty tight, so I can say that if the money were still here, I easily would have bought much more.

    Since I haven't been able to upgrade my computer, I'm stuck using DAZ 2.3, so most of what's come out in the past year is completely useless to me; I have difficulty even looking in the store since I can't use it, I hate to see what I'm missing.

    I thought: oh, it won't be that much, I started out with DS for figure reference yeaaars back and didn't really have a PC that was too good with this kind of thing (arguably still don't) - and most certainly didn't have the money, I was flat broke when I started - so my years of actual spending aren't that much. It'll probably be around 90 pages.

    154 pages, 1538 items (obv. not counting bundles, which I have great love for and so am GLAD it doesn't count them separately).

    So much for those years of figure reference and crappy computing. :down:

    So in addition to all that you have purchased, gotten have you installed it all into your runtime? Do you keep the install files once you install it?

    220 items (not breaking down bundles), this is kind of worrying considering I've only been here since May.

    1560, but my spreadsheet shows that as breaking down to 2226 items before adding in a few hundred items from the old Daz Free Library, Daz Products that came free with issues of 3D world and other mags, and a couple of compilation CDs that were actually physically bought from Daz at conventions. And, of course, it doesn't reflect things that I bought as stand-alones and then got AGAIN as part of a bundle. (I've got enough Aiko 3's alone to start a small army...)

    And add in all the other items from all the other vendors, and my runtimes passed into five digit territory a goodly while back. :blank:

    Only 591, though I really haven't done much in several years. I do have my wishlist pared down to only 114 items. It no longer totals the cost, but at one time it was in the thousands.

    I have most of my stuff installed, i tend to keep everything in monthly folders and tend to install it all in a batch. With the exception of stuff i must use the day I buy.

    I keep installers. I back them up to an external drive as well and backup on runtime every two months. Used to be monthly but it takes too long now to try every month.

    I have been here for a long time and I buy them for many reasons. So ... yeah. Not going to say how many items I have though. It is a bit shocking.
