does anyone know of where I can get a chainmail second skin for Genesis? (or V4, with Genesis taking V4 textures)

Either in an existing sale product (which I probably own and can’t remember) or a freebie?

You can use this combination…

The free Hero suit for Genesis by JoeQuick… http://www.sharecg.com/v/65219/gallery/21/DAZ-Studio/Free-Genesis-Bodysuit


And this shader…

http://www.sharecg.com/v/55177/gallery/11/Poser/Fixed-DS-Mats-Fot-Tileable-Mail-Textures-1-And-2

You could even create a Geometry Shell and apply the shader to that.  The shader is DS only and can be applied to just about anything.

Here’s the ‘scale’ mail’ shader (one of the other sets) in action…

It just means it’s expensive.

ooo i forgot about that! :D

it’s to go under fantasy armour, so it’s really for her abdomen and upper legs and arms, so that could be good.

i could have sworn i had a chainmail shader but i must have been dreaming.

Also… I know it’s not a second skin, but you do have the Supersuit and the base product comes with a chainmail shader.

YES!  I knew that there was a set of Genesis armor here that had a second skin.  Thank you for that, Valandar.

Thanks for pointing that out.  I couldn’t remember if they had second skins or not and I was too lazy to actually look at my own runtime. 

Fast forward two days… Got my copy of Cavalier installed and took it out for a spin with the new Cat character.  While my render leaves a lot to be desired, the armor is nothing short of awesome.

There really needs to be a good comprehensive listing of all the various Daz shaders… I’ve often found myself in the same situation, thinking “I really need a…” only to find it on a product I already have.
