I just recently updated (yet AGAIN) my content, including the female genitalia for genesis, and I have to say, WTF?!

It’s like DAZ took a completely functional product and purposely broke it.  The metadata is incomplete, the one morph that it actually had is gone (the seperate morph), and the material preset and texture has disappeared.

The male genitalia doesn’t seem to have any problems; all the morphs appear to be present, the textures and materials presets are there, even the metadata is complete.

What gives, DAZ?  I understand wanting to update the product, but to strip it of all functionality?

I know, it’s really bizarre - I wonder if they are going to redo the MAT settings of the previous skin textures that made use of the old genitalia (such as Bree, etc.)?  I doubt it.

wow, daz really is being touchy about anatomy. Have you backed up the previous version? It might be worth re-installing.

SimonJM:  I think it’s more likely someone just forgot these additional files.  The actual genitalia file doesn’t appear to have been changed.

Spyro:  I found a 1.1 version of the gens, so I’ve been able to replace all the missing stuff.  I just wish DAZ was a little more thorough when they update things.  Seems like every time they do, something gets dropped or damaged.

I thought the old version had two MAT zones, one for the ‘inner bits’, with the new one having just one ‘hip’ MAT zone?

I thought that too. That’s why Victoria comes with a special texture for it… Yet my update before this one may have removed it :(

Version 1.1 I think I’m using… I’ll have a check in my downloads.

Edit: No I’ve got 1.4 currently, 1.1 from memory was the working one that had two mat zones.

It’s certainly annoying… updates are supposed to fix issues, not create them. Maybe we should submit a bug report or something? I’ve never done it before lol

Yeah I only thought Sony sold products and then later removed features from them. Guess not.

Considering it’s one of those anatomy bits that Daz is all so hush hush about and not interested in supporting it properly, it’s a shame that they have removed what little of the support we had of them.

Yeah but I like the fact that it’s geocrafted, that way there would be no issues with conforming to the character and no requirement for those annoying trans maps. It is however stupid that the gens arent offered as part of the basic M5 and V5. You shouldnt have to go Pro bundle just to get a complete figure.

I think she gens is also geo grafted. it’s got a lot of morphs but I don’t think it takes V5 textures.

(edit I really could be wrong about both though haven’t looked it up in months. But thats what I thought I understood. I thought the trans map was optional)

Well I guess a bug report for the item to address its missing material zones and morph will need to be sent. lol what an awkward bug report to make lol
