Let’s get something straight - I love playing with 3D modeling, even though I’ve barely scratched the surface. Without D/S being freely available, I’d never have been able to on my budget. There are many wonderful products out there, both free and paid, and I’ve never had a problem with them so far.
That said, there are things I wish for, both within the D/S program and on the website. I wish there were a comprehensive user guide available, complete with working image links and tutorials for every function. The users here in the forums have been very patient and helpful, but sometimes a proper tutorial (or several) would save a great deal of time and frustration. I understand that, given the free nature of D/S, some areas will not be as well-supported as a paid-for program. I’m just disappointed that it’s so difficult for me to grasp simple functions because of the lack of proper tutorials.
I wish there were more consistency in the store when it comes to products on sale - it’s a bit frustrating to see products advertised as being part of a sale but not actually qualifying for any discount.
I wish there were a better way of organizing content within D/S. I have a lot of items I rarely use that I have to sort through while looking for more frequently used content. A better way to organize this would be most welcome.
Lastly, a more consistent presence by DAZ on the forums might help smooth over much of the bad blood that seems to be out here in regards to customer service. I haven’t had any issues with my purchases, but I must admit it makes me nervous to see so many dissatisfied customers having the same issues with customer service.
I’m trying not to whine here. D/S has helped me realize many artistic ideas I’ve had for a long time, and I’ve just scratched the surface. But I think it could be so much better. Just my two cents worth…
