Today’s 3D World Advent Calendar item includes DAZ Studio 4.5 and Buccaneer Basic for free.

Anyhow, at the end of the advertisement, I mean “article”, it mentions:

“With a massive Content Marketplace and plans to release generation 6 for the top figures in 2013, you’ll want to keep up with them.”

Generation 6 in 2013. Serious groan.  Why are we bothering to buy generation 5 items if you’re getting ready to make them obsolete?  Will they be part of the existing Genesis gene pool or is that going obsolete as well.

There is a thread in members only about this and there I said this.

it’s a typo(i’m pretty confident), if you look at the article it has a few others as well. It’s way too soon for Gen6 and others chimed in and said the same thing. don’t think anyone offical cleared the air though.

Glad to hear it’s likely a typo. I’ll head over to members-only.  Maybe DAZ will clarify.

yeah I hope they say something quick, if people speculate that a new generation will start soon it will cause a lot of fear and confusion. Will my genesis content work? Will I be able to use my V4 poses? Does it work in poser? When will we get the next generation dog?

Oh wait, that last one is still valid smile

I am only saying it could well be a typo as well, I really do not know, but it does seem somewhat unlikely

It better be a typo because if it isn’t how come that magazine found out before anybody else! That alone would be upsetting.

I’m not expecting any obsolescence unless I hear the words, “Genesis 2”!

A DAZ employee should comment.

Even if true, it’s not a reason to panic, LOL. Genesis, while a great leap forward is far from perfect. I would welcome a new/better figure based on the same tech and hopefully retaining the same capabilities that we have now with genesis, meaning using Gen 3 and gen 4 content and morphs.

But only if you buy all the plugins and pro pack. Who wants to go through all that so soon? no one said genesis was perfect, but why not a point revision like Vickie 4 had?

...crikey there are plugins (including a couple of my faves)  that still haven’t been updated for 4.0 not much less 4.5.

If they were to make Genesis 2.0 then I would imagine they’d be going for poser compatible figure (Without use of DSON) But as far as Victoria 6 and Michael 6… It seems a little too early. PA’s really have only just began supporting generation 5! A lot more can be done with Genesis and Generation 5, meaning there is still alot of money to be made from it. If they rushed into another figure/generation they potentially loose all that money.

BTW Genesis has technically been using the “Points” for a while now. It’s received changes over the course of DS4.5 Betas (Each time a new beta arrives, a upgraded genesis also arrives along with it) But really, I doubt Daz will make Generation 6 until at very least 2014.

The last thing they’d want is to discourage all the content creators (PA’s) who have ONLY JUST BEGAN to create for Genesis/Gen5 by releasing a new figure and new generation so soon.

We’re not done with Gen 5 just yet. According to a member in the PC Members forum, Freak 5 is already beginning to pop-up in the ReadMe’s.
