Hi,
I get a newsletter today with the info that the new “The Internment Tomb” is on sale for 50%. I went to the shop, put it in my cart, added the then free “Them bones” and want to go to checkout. But then I got told, the page is offline or something. Ok, I will try later. But when I came back a few time later there was an oter price in my cart? I think it was 19.81$ (also Scarlet for G in)  but then it was 24.80$!!!
Because the Internment Tomb is only on sale 30% now?????
Is that an errror?????
What happens to the 50% ? It is over after a few hours????? Was the newsletter wrong?

This was on sale for around $12 earlier, now it’s $17.47. Why the price hike?

I don’t know ... but there are a few items I’ve been watching doing that. One has a different price “everytime” I check it.

I spotted this product as well as was quite interested until I looked down and saw that it has only a DSON installer. I’m not really up on current DS file formats since I stopped using DS around 3.0 and primarily use Cararra and Poser as my programs of choice, so I’m unsure if this product will work as is in Carrara and Poser, or will it require the DSON importer to enable it to at least be useable in Poser? I was under the impression that DSON was primarily used for genesis products, not static props like this tomb, but then I don’t use or have any interest in genesis so I may be mistaken?

It looks to me like it may have been at 50% off for a while, and now it is back to it’s normal 30% off for new items.

The DSON bit is confusing.  I think DSON would be needed to open DS 4.5 DUF Scene Files files as well (that is how genesis is loaded), but there is no mention of them in the description.  Usually when there are a lot of props like this, there is a scene file supplied which loads them all at the same time, but I don’t see one listed.

It does say PP2 (Poser Prop), and OBJ files are supplied, so I don;t see why DSON would be needed for Poser, or Carrara for that matter.  The only DS files that are mentioned are DSA texture files which can be used in any version of DS I think.

You could write to Support, or buy it anyway, it should work in Poser and Carrara from what the description says, if it doesn’t, return it for a refund.

I think the 50% was a glitch price, the rest of the store was on 50% off when I looked yesterday.

Not a glitch, was part of a promotion for “High Fantasy” which has a super deal each day… A new fantasy item, at 50% off, and an additional ‘free’ item (but ONLY if you buy it in the cart at the same time as the daily High fantasy deal!).

problem is, i don’t think the internment was up for a full day???? :S

Oh well. I got this one instead: http://www.daz3d.com/shop/the-crypt-of-pralleus which is still at 50% off, and cheaper than internenment… doesn’t come with a free matching bones set, but I DO already have one of his “them bones” sets so I think I’ll manage. smile
I do like his sets though… they always come with matching lights. <3

.

It was only 50% off for a few hours. Normally sales last for at least a day as far as I can tell. The newsletter even had it listed as 50% off for the high fantasy sale.

I’ve found that when I’m on the fence like I was with that set, DAZ makes my mind up for me by changing the price ;p

I also have bones and more bones so would have been a nice addition but not necessary.

Just because I may have a strong opinion doesn’t make it any more (or less) correct than any other, just that I feel passionately a particular way at that moment.

There is a Poser Core installer which has everything you need.
I use Poser, it has the installed items as .pp2 format (props).

What makes my a little angry is, that I had it in my cart for 50% but I could not check out cause I get told the homepage would be offline or something and a few later when I tried again, the price was changed…. :(
That was really strange and disappointing…:long:

If I were you, I would write to Support and see if they can help you.  It’s worth a try since it wasn’t your fault?

Me too. I added it to my baskedt at 50% off with the intention of paying and downloading when I got back to my computer a few hours later and it was already back to just 30% off.

Pity because it looks good, but the extra $5 will just feel like a rip off now, So I will leave it.
