The DAZ Creeper Appreciation Thread (Possible Nudity... at least there's a naked creeper...)

I just want to take a moment to remember the very first exotic creature DAZ ever produced... and remember him/her/it fondly... and how I loved figuring out ways to Terrorize Posette and eventually Victoria with him/her/it...

MERRY CHRISTMAS, Creeper! Wherever you are...

    I was just working on a Creeper render!

    Took a lot of effort too. Hopefully ready this weekend - now it will have a home.

    I forgot about the drool! Sooo appropriate to the character :)

    Sadly, I have not had the creeper in years :(

    I MISS YOU MAAAAN!!!

    Thank you for the render!

    My runtime was getting cluttered, so I hired a janitor. (Reality render)

    Personally, I liked the hanging tongue and the two drool props.

    This "Cockroach" was rendered in DS2 a few years back, largely to showcase the Dystopian Krueger when it was still new. I used Pendragon's skin shader with a blue or green SSS tone, and liked the result so much that I posted a crop from it as my Rendo avatar.

    I also wrote a story in the Team-Dystopia archives with a Creeper bartender, though I never did a picture of him.

    Don't forget the Creeper got to featured in a video game and terrorize the heroes of it.

    Restricted Area was a poor cyberpunk Diablo 2 type game, it doesn't work right if you are using Vista or anything higher and want to play the English version of it.

    Creepers are one of the commonly encountered enemies in the game.

    I'm still pining for the Creeper... unfortunately for me, much of the content I had at one point has been lost due to a variety of factors. I think the Creeper is the one thing I miss the most... I sure wish DAZ would put him out again...

    Who at DAZ do I have to brown nose to get him back?

    I wish that they would bring back all of those old freebies. Many were worth paying for.

    They and the PoserPros forum archive disappeared when the new site went online last year; a big loss... :long:

    I made a point to make sure I grabbed all the stuff from the old freebie archive...so I've got him, but I haven't installed him, since DS 1.x...until tonight.

    I'd forgotten how much fun he was...

    Funny how the pose pack is still in the store.

    I know there wasn't much around for him, but does anyone know of any texture packs for him?

    We Must Mount a concerted protest to get Das Creeper Back in the Store!!!!! Pitchforks and Torches!!!! I shall not rest till he comes back...

    I KNOW how to get the Creeper Back!!! Everyone make a Morph for the Creeper, submit it to DAZ as a Morph Set! Someone make Marylin Monroe Creeper and someone make a Taylor Swift Creeper and someone make a Madonna Creeper and someone make a Snookie Creeper! That WILL get DAZ's attention!

    With a little UberSurface...for some SSS and other 'modern' shader goodness...you get this...this is the one include MAT, with the bump 'on' and SSS, translucency and other effects supplied by UberSurface. Just a basic 3 point light with shadows...nothing fancy.

    We need Wendy to put him in a dress and post an animation to YouTube...

    Been restoring files from a back up drive after my last 'puter vaporized.

    Look what I found:


    EDIT - HOLY CRAP!! The preview is not erasing previous frames of the animation!

    Never saw that happen before - but viewing it full sizr plays normally from here. Does everyone see it that way, or does the preview play fine on other folks's systems?

    I had done this one a few years ago, casting the Creeper as a giant antediluvian creature:

    I think it came out ok. :)

    I can't find the creeper in the store... DAZ didn't bring it back at all, or I missed it if they did...

    Creeper was on the free.daz3d.com site, which went away when the new store went up. Unfortunately those models have not come back ... :(

    they actually gave the Creeper away free? Who Knew? Why did no one tell me?

  • WandWWandW Posts: 1,258

    It was on the free site literally for years...

    Is there any chance that the creeper can be re-released or remade and released
