I was wondering what Arien was working on… one of her products she hinted at has hit… and I do mean hinted at, there was ZERO information on it.  Looks like that new video card of her’s is allowing her to run DS just fine… FINALLY! 

Just hope that DAZ extends the sale.  Looking at finances I’m probably not going to be able to get much until Dec sometime…. Needed to much for the house and supplements for my health this month… ate up allot of money!

Question on those wanting the kinda medieval tack thing would this work: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/saddle-addon

At least one of the textures there would seem like it would work and I wonder if you could turn off some of the additional bits you don’t need to make it fit the period nicely? IDK I cant picture exactly what everyone is wanting per say so I could be wrong but saw the third or fourth promo and thought it kinda seemed plausible in that sort of scenario.

I’m in a similar boat; kids Christmas gifts come first.  My pretty much constant thought when I look at the front page is, ‘It’s okay.  It’ll be on a similar sale in 3-4 months…I don’t need the horse yet.  Besides, by then someone will have released the pegasus and unicorn add-ons…’  I doubt they’ll extend the sale, but March isn’t that far away…  wink

That said, I have a November PC coupon which is burning a hole in my pocket as we come up on the end of the month…

Still, I should note, I’m VERY impressed by Horse 2, and even more so by the commitment DAZ and the PA’s have shown to it, with the simultaneous large-scale launch of so much content.  Everybody’s done an amazing job.

Seam guides for the Horse 2 body, head, and eyes complete. Download them here:

I hope they can help! Remember to convert to true color (24-bit) before you begin painting, they are saved as GIFs (as are all of my guides) to save room and avoid artifacts.

I’ve discovered some weird Saddle behaviour in this pose (first one I tried) - most noticeable on the Western saddle, but present on the English Saddle too. I had just done a scene last week with the MillHorse and I was going to do the second one I hadn’t got around to, drinking water, with Horse2 and got this… the saddle stretches with the neck.

I haven’t installed the horse yet, so I can’t test this, but try selecting the neck of the saddle and bending it back up - I think that will help, depending on what other bones are attached.

3Ddreamer… Using the saddle’s Neck1 Bend dial will help some.

I have additional 9 Blinker materials (some with new designs) and Saddle Cloths for horses No. 10 through 14 available on my website for Racehorse Tack.

I’ll also putting the finishing touches on the “Pixel Downs Racetrack” and will hopefully have that ready soon.

I want the Saddle Addon, but I’m not all that interested in the two Genesis clothing (Jockey Set / Riding Habit) products.  Neither of which really go with the Saddle Addon.  (and ... Genesis clothing still isn’t working consistently in Poser.  Some clothing works ok, but others really don’t.)

I suppose it wouldn’t look terribly out of character to have a jockey riding a horse across the desert with a saddle roll and packs ... 

/cough

After shelling out $60, do I really want to spend another $11 just to get a $6 product free?  Hmm ...

I think I’ll go fix dinner.  Maybe by the time I get back to the computer, the promotion will be over.  Then I won’t have to debate the decision any longer.

I really hate to bring this up, but there’s a major design flaw in the Wagon Trail 1 wagon - with the front wheels the size they are, there’s no way the wagon can turn.

The Pro Bundle includes the Starter Bundle. So the Starter bundle has the saddles, and the Pro Bundle adds the extra textures.

Thank you!
I did feel like I am missing something.
My brain is too foggy ... *cough, wheeze*

Anything on the textures?
Will MilHorse textures work on this horsey?
Or is there a “morphs and textures package” that just has the morphs and textures in the starter and pro bundle?
(no money ... is not fun)

You have my sympathy, I’m full of cold too at the moment :(

The UVs have been updated so the MilHorse textures won’t work on this horse, whilst I can see the value in the new uv maps I’m a bit cheesed off that that MilHorse UVs wern’t included as V4 ones are for Genesis, I have hundreds of my own textures for the MilHorse, one of which I was working on the day before this release. I’d pay for accurate MilHorse UVs for this horse to be able to use my own work..

Greetings,
O_o?!  How is it that with the ASTONISHING flood of H2 products, there’s no geografted unicorn horn…?

I am now also deeply hoping that sometime later next year will come ‘dog 2’, with wolf and fox morphs & mats.  The one fox I have (by 9mbi) has no poses, which makes it difficult to use outside of ‘standing there’ pose…

I also wonder if we’ll see ‘Genesis Rodent’ and ‘Genesis Cat’, so we can make a cabbit by blending the two.  wink

..or a CatDog with Cat2 & Dog2.

Here’s just a few of CWRW’s great horse textures (found in the Pro Pack), plus Sicklemar and Marieah’s Jockey Silks, and of course, some of my horseracing items.  I did manage to squeeze some birds into the image, too (imagine that).
