There is a placeholder in the documentation center for “Bot Genesis”

http://docs.daz3d.com/doku.php/public/read_me/index/15588/start

Could the newsletter be a sneak peek ?

Very, very likely. The geometry is too different to be a simple edit/postwork of the V4/A4 versions. Plus the face doesn’t really have that typical V4/A4 style really. (At least in my opinion.)

I wonder if Bot Genesis was meant to be available in the store before that newsletter went out, then.  Still, looks like it will be a must-buy set, if that is indeed what it is.

I’d've been a lot happier to have a live product page to point at instead of a placeholder-doc in case somebody asks about it, yeah — bet DAZ would rather interested parties were buying instead of pining.

If its for Genesis then one size should fit all.  From what clothing makers have told me about the basics of modeling for Genesis is that you model the clothing for the base shape and Genesis/DS4 does the rest as far as shaping goes.  But like I said, thats the basics.  Beyond that Im lost as I dont model yet.

Yes, that’s the ‘basics’...but if you don’t want the ‘cling’ look, you need to at least make some custom FBMs for some of the shapes…at least Basic Female, V4 & 5 (A and S are good too), Basic Child and now the teens and depending on the item maybe some of the more ‘exotic’ or ‘toon’ shapes (troll, Anubis, Jasmine, Hitomi, etc…).  And ‘hard’ items almost always need extensive ‘correction morphs’ or to be individually made/adjusted for a particular shape, otherwise they will distort.  So while there can be ‘one size fits all’, there are a lot of things that still need to be done the old fashioned way.

...pretty “swiss” chrome there.

Finally, I will have Mercurial for my Shadowrun scenes.

As I discovered recently, you do need to make a few allowances for certain morphs, but in general what you said is very true. The tennis outfit I’m working on morphs flawlessly with Genesis now, no matter how big or small I make the character.

I’ve not found a single published Genesis item which didn’t work with all morphs, though I did find a freebie top which had some poke through issues at times.

‘Hard’ parts…things that are supposed to be rigid and items you don’t want to follow the breasts, like the purple V4 bra…need the extra morphs.  The auto-generated ones have improved, though.
