Even with the pricing issues, I had to get the pro set. My first proper render with the Supersuit… and the most characters I’ve packed into the viewport, ever.

Is the Super-suit going to be the body suit for Genesis? 300 mat zones sounds like a headache.

it is a little advertised fact, but there is a second bodysuit included in the bundle that is a “normal” bodysuit without all the wicked functionality.

For one of the promo renders, I had 25 genesis figures wearing 25 supersuits… YIKES

Is that one available on it’s own? I don’t have any use for the ‘wicked functionality’ - not my sort of thing - but I use bodysuits for shirts and such under other things. Just simple ones like the M4/V4 ones.

So…are all the add-ons for the supersuit, just pre-made configurations of what you “could” do by hand using the base supersuit, or do they actually add new things?  I notice a few had some props and materials(which I assume are add-ons), but I was more interested in the actual morphs?

They’re new things, completely new textures and shaders, plus some have extra props and Genesis shapes.

OK, so its textures and shaders (and some props, maybe a Genesis shape)  All of the “preset shapes” they mention, are just presets of the bodysuit, which one could “dial in” or something?  For example, for the Fantasy Pack, it shows a barbarian outfit.  You could get that basic shape out of the base suit (though not as easy without the preset), but you would NOT have the hair texture/shaders needed without that add-on?

Wow.. there are some great renders in here already!  I’m pretty bummed though… Supposedly the super suit was going to be added to my account… according to my email back when I chose it for my March Madness bonus… And it’s not there at all. I did email support, but it seems to me that people who opted for the bonus and bought everything in the category in March should not have to wait.  I am a pretty calm person, but I’m disappointed right now. I get that the store is a mess… and the forums are a mess.. and that we’re supposed to be oh so patient, but *sniff cry* I hope they resolve the pricing issues for everyone… and get this product into the accounts of those of us who did choose it in good faith back when….

Don’t feel too bad. I picked the Grab Bag and got a box of rancid mayo and a broken statue.


ohh Seriously??? Ouch… That seems very strange…

The statue appeared to be a 3D print of V3 or V4. Would have been a very nice item to have. Unfortunately heavy, semi fragile intricate item does not mix well with poor packaging and Parcel Post shipping. The result was it showed up in five peices.


Add into this that someone thought it would be amusing to include a packet of mayo. The kind you would get from a take out place. Unfortunately this did not mix well with large, heavy, loose items (see above). This was compounded by about 50 Hiro 3 give away disks. So somewhere along the trip it must have gotten pinched between them. Mayo + Parcel Post + Springtime in Florida = An overly unpleasent box.


I was able to salvage three audio CDs (two of which I already owned, one in Russian (I presume)). And one DAZ instruction book.


Thrown away was an assortment of posters, two books (one in German I think), one magazine, two Victoria Secret catalogs and a t-shirt.


I emailed support about it. Not really expecting a resolution, but thinking I should at least mention the poor logic of mayo and no padding in the box.


I expected at least an apology, but to date, nothing.


Moral of the story, choose the grab bag at your own peril. Unless you want to trade $100 in product for a book that smells of mayo.

with the supersuit? I saw the semi-look-a-like in the Hero Classics product but i want to be able to recreate the real thing smile

Looking at the morphing seams though i dont see any lines that can be combined to create the classic red briefs. Is it possible?

No, it’s impossible to make a material zone of that shape. It can’t be done.

Correct, but if you have other shaders you could easily use them on the boy suit. Having said that as others have said the shaders are awesome and the presets make life much easier.

I belief what has been done is to us the body suit and put a pair of ‘briefs’ over the top.

I really love this suit.

You can use the briefs that come with Studio. Rand said that he’ll be releasing the presets he did for the Marvel & DC characters sometime next week, so that might be a big help. Note that there are things that the Supersuit can’t do (or at least, not do well); that’s why there are sets for belts, gloves, and capes coming soon.
