I found this over at RDNA:

http://www.runtimedna.com/HawkStylez-Texture-Color-Pose-Trans-Pack-for-Hawk-Hair.html

but as far as I can work out it is for apollo maximus and I haven’t even been able to track down the base hair that this is a texture for.

Does anyone know of a similar hair that could be made to look like this for M4/V4/genesis, particularly the styles in the top right corner?

The only hair I know of that even comes remotely close to what you want is this one. http://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/index.php?ViewProduct=88023

Genesis is head & shoulders above “Genesis 2” (or better known as BF2/BM2) and is the FAR superior figure. Why? It doesn’t suffer from the UN-necessary gender split

Can be played around with a lot.

There are some fits for M3/V3 as well for this hair. You can always try to use smoothing/collision to get the hair to fit as well, or just apply the morph to the hair, set the fit to M3… then export the obj and then run the transfer tool on that to get the hair to fit. There’s several ways that this hair could be usable with genesis. I think the biggest hurdle is hoping that the hair does not have an associated pmd with it that contains the morphs.

If nothing else, I think scaling/translating the hair could work.

AAARRRRGGGGHHHH!!

thanks for that link, I don’t know what went wrong when I searched the RDNA site looking for the base hair, and googling it ...

I see it is shown as fitting V3/M3 so I guess it will also fit genesis.

One of the M5 promo images showed a hair style very similar to the one I wanted but it had the word ‘customised’ next to it. I tried recreating it but had no luck getting anywhere near it and posting a request in the forum didn’t produce any results.

It is so cheap being on permanent sale so I think I will take the risk and try it.

The Deep Freeze has some excellent products. Old, but still useful.

All sold “as is” though.

Oh yes, I bought the complete TPxxx prop sets for almost nothing, superb sets and works well in both DS and Poser, rally good stuff.!

Uh huh. Lots of plant models too. Plus a lot of things for older figures, or older generation figures—which a lot of people still use.

And the Infinity Cove textures aren’t bad for applying to other things. Not top of the line, but you aren’t paying top of the line prices either.

If anyone test this mohawk and find it ticking on M/V and Genesis, let us know smile

Well, I have now played around with them a little on M4/M5:

There is a huge number of styling morphs and they appear to work.

Some textures are installed into the wrong place and you have to manually locate them.

I had to do a lot of fiddly manual positioning of the hair on the head and use smoothing, but this could be because of my lack of expertise and there may be easier ways of doing it. The main problem is in getting the cap positioned.

The rendered result doesn’t have the sophisticated look that you would expect from something from AprilYSH for instance, but for non closeup images should be OK. It would be really nice if an updated version was done by a PA (hint, hint).

So, I would say - go for it! At those prices it is worth it.

I thought I would post a couple of basic images just to show that the hair will work with M5.

I am starting to go through tidying up various things. Like the style presets zero the cap morph settings before applying the style! So you lose all the adjustments you manually make to fit the cap to the head. Major things like that. If you look closely at the images you will see what appear to be wispy hairs floating out over the top of the main hair. I want to get rid of them. And so on.

But in spite of things like that I am very pleased with the purchase.

OK, so here is an example of it being actually used (wispy bits not removed yet):

Suspect those wispy bits are the edges of a trans map. But don’t count on it. I don’t know what I’m talking about.
