    Now would that be a good proper Irish whiskey or that poor imitation the Scots produce? :lol:

    A good old fashion whiskey war, much like Liverpool vs Manchester United or Mercedes vs. BMW ;-)

    Well, y'know, the Irish invented whiskey and the Scots stole it. Then the Irish invented bagpipes and the Scots stole them too. Finally the Irish invented kilts and the Scots haven't gotten the joke yet. :lol:

    As a side note, I'm Irish, Scots and Welsh - in part. Thankfully there's more to dilute it some. :)

    My latest PlatClub Inspirations entry. Jack's products used: Carnival Midway Interiors (the sign on the ground), Atrophy, Parkside Point Interior (the rubble), Parkside Heath, and Moon Gate (the decorative stonework next to the step).

    DS4.5Pro render, postwork in GIMP. Larger version in my deviantART gallery here.

    Very nice indeed. Maybe you could post that image for inspiration in the New Users contest which is a Halloween based theme.

    Awh.. lego.. I love that stuff!

    I guess that will be an upside to having kids, I can buy them things like that and not feel too bad ;)

    I can't count the hours I've spent with my son when he was in lego age building things, then he took the role as "lego master" when he built with he smaller cousins.

    Problem is it takes a couple of years before they are fit for it ;-)

    Yes I remember my son being so happy when his 2nd was a boy, he had an excuse to buy him a Scalextric set, although I was never quite certain why he bought one for him at Christmas in the year that he was born. :roll: BTW Daniel was born in October. :coolsmirk:

    That sounds like the classical -"Here comes Santa with an electric model trainset, for dad..."

    Tools are tools (excellent as Jack's stuff is), it's what you do with 'em -- that's nice work.

    just picked up the Moonshine Drive-In, been wanting a Drive-In for soooo long, I just had to grab this....

    Just one question, where is the projection booth?

    Heh cheers.

    Sadly got blown away in the great tornado of '53.. very sad indeed :(

    Real answer? We had to keep some stuff behind.. didn't want to put all the eggs in one basket etc... ;)

    So it'll show up in an expansion? BTW, is that 50's diner we keep seeing blurry in the background of the PC promo shots yours? Are we gonna get it this month?

    And here's a question that might actually get answered: What's the historically accurate screen ratio that's supposed to be projected on that thing? 16:9, or did drive-ins use something else?

    An authentic ground plane? They weren't flat, after all.

    hello folks how are you?

    haven`t written here a for time but I am a bit busy, work work work and I have also some other galleries at other sites, other thing is, I am busy with creating my own landscapes with stuff from my content. Had some things to learn about d-formers and had to fix textures and so.

    And here are some results, sorry Jack, this is pure nature and no item made by you is used, but I want to know what you think because you are some of the best artists around, known for detailed accuracy :)

    the following images containing:

    trees by Andrey Pestryakov and Predatron
    bushes by Lisa
    stones and rocks from various sets I have
    backroundwall from rocks`n`drops by Pedatron (reworked by me with some deformers)
    ground by Flink (Renderosity) (some different ground planes with fixed texture of this set)

    textures for backroundwall, rocks and stones from the rocks`n`drops set but reworked and fixed by me so I was able to use it on all stony surfaces with some tilling adjustment here and there.

    clothes on Dixie by 3D-Age (Renderosity) (this artist have some of the best clothes for V4 I know but this is just my opinion and no rating on others that are also good)

    by the way, I have a really huge gallery at renderosity under cosmo71 so if someone is interested go there and have fun :)

    and know here are the images:

    That's cool, thought for a moment someone spiked my whiskey ;)

    Now would that be a good proper Irish whiskey or that poor imitation the Scots produce? :lol:

    Ooh controversial!

    I'd just like to say, I don't discriminate against any type of alcoholic beverage (even the ones with the funny umbrellas in them) :)


    The umbrellas are cool after one's had a goodly number of the associated drinks. Not quite as obtrusive as wearing lampshades.

    It's not my place to say when and what stuff will be released. I can say, however, I've done several products for the sale - and I assume they will be released throughout the month.

    It's really tricky.. on the run up for the sale everyone was saying 'I hope there's not a theme.. since if I don't like the theme I wont buy' so I guess DAZ have tried to spread stuff out and mix it up where they can... and now of course people want loads of stuff and they want it NOW!.

    So in summary - don't panic, be patient and enjoy the sale. And while futile, I think they are doing they best to make sure everyone gets something they like.

    Regarding the aspect ratio - here is source of information which might help : http://www.reelclassics.com/Techtalk/aspectratio-article.htm

    Hope that helps.

    Nice to hear you're off on your journey of 3D art too.. easy to see where the time goes now isn't it?

    Keep up the good work :)
