So I was most active in the Davorama F.V.C.S. appreciation threads on the old forums.. Any chance they will get a revival on this board?  there were like 500 or 600 pages of posts between them all….


Hold the phone, I just hit preview and it didn’t let me post an image to the thread. Seriously? at DAZ? WTH?

Yes, there’s a problem with images at the moment.  They’re working on it (and avatars and several other features) as fast as they can.

Thanks, I was really happy with this one. I’ve created a lot of transparency maps to make the interior work which was a fun challenge.

Yes. It refers to this artist. I don’t think the Flight Vehicle Construction Kit is still available at DAZ, but you can get it at powerfusion3d.com.

I haven’t bought a ton of Davo’s stuff, but what I like what I’ve gotten so far…

...that is, I like what I’ve bought and have been able to install correctly…*AHEM*...DAZ…

SFCS2 and the ShardWeapons packages seem to have DAZ’s older installer software that strangely doesn’t seem to work.  I’ve downloaded and tried to get them to go multiple times.  And yes, I’m downloading the PC file, not the Mac one.  No dice.

Why use installer programs at all?  Why not just let users downloaded ZIP files like they have at Renderosity and RuntimeDNA?  I just spent 50 dollars on something that I can get—ZERO—use out of, thanks to the gay installer software.

I’d really like to have the product…my paying your asking price should tell you that.  I don’t want a refund, but if you’re incapable of delivering it to me via your online distribution system then I’m afraid it’s no sale, and I’ll need my money back.

had the same problem with other products. It is a known issue at daz that the old installers (with daz logo in it) not work and has something to do with the new site and they try to fix it BUT I can`t understand why they don`t mark these products temporarily as not working until they have fixed it. So nobody has trouble.
A guy in another thread have found the reason it seems and have posted what he has done to make them running. here is the link with the example:
http://www.daz3d.com/forums/viewthread/217/

I have made the same suggestion with the zips. Not only zips but that you can choose between zips or installer. Daz I think has installers so that is easy for beginners you know, just download, double click and that was it. (if it works)

My experience with DAZ is that if a file doesn’t work, I call them (with an actual phone, it’s old timey but it works) and they gladly email me a zip of the raw files.

Now back to the topic at hand, here’s another of my more recent Davo builds; full resolution can be found at:

Madman, those are some awesome assemblies!  Thanks for sharing.

I was just made aware that some installers weren’t working properly last week for older items.  I wouldn’t understand why they don’t work, was there an explanation given?  In the mean time, if anybody has any issues, please contact me at:

I’ll see what I can do to help out.

Cheers,
