i like it but i’m a bit disappointed that we cant give the hands any skin-like texture, unless we do not use the wrist cut

The red marks are what I am not liking not the red marks they are just me outlining the bad pokethrough which happens with loads of poses for genesis I like the Bot for Genesis but It could have been tested a lot more with poses I guess.

I too have experienced the poke through issues on several poses.  Some I have been able to fix using the morph adjustments for the joints but not all of them.

As for the tone/skin spectrum for v4, I started using DAZ only in November and have not purchased all the V4 character options (only base v4/m4 bundles) because I felt that it would only be a matter of time before most sets were migrated (as evidenced by the new release of the Freak 5)  I suppose your argument is valid, but I do feel that naming the product “Bot for Genesis” sets a certain expectation (and is a bit misleading) for potential buyers and users.  If it was intended to only work for Victoria 4 UV maps then it should not be labeled for “Genesis”

I would also add that on many of the genesis body types, even when using v4 skins, I have encountered seam tears on the scalp, legs and arms so the chrome shows through which is not ideal.  So I still believe that this product should still be in beta.

If you need darker skins there are some wonderful ones for V4 here

I’ve had the same thing happen - easiest way to fix it I’ve found is to click on the joint object and shift it using the xyz motion parameters so it fits better.

The problem seems to be because of the joint bend fixing product I use, which gets rid of the skin bulges and creases nicely but doesn’t move the Bot joint objects, so they tend to intersect the skin at times.

I purchased this item but didn’t really care for it, so I got a refund. I found a better Cyborg for V4 here: http://www.runtimedna.com/110.1.html

Although I don’t think Alfaseed’s work can be faulted, I wouldn’t actually say that that set is better its a completly different style to begin with and I don’t know if it will autofit at all well.
I really like this set and don’t regret purchasing it at all.

110.1 is a great outfit (and I’ve used it a number of times), but as scorpio64dragon states, it’s a completely different style.  They each have their place.  110.1 also only semi-works with Genesis after conversion.

Bot Genesis is okay. I just think it looks a little cartoonish. I like the look of the Alfaseed model better.

Is anyone else having problems uninstalling bot genesis? The uninstaller freezes. Is there a way to go directly to registery or some other way to manually uninstall? ANY advice at this point would be helpful.

It may not have installed correctly the first time, or the uninstaller may be corrupted in some way.  What I usually do, is reinstall the item, and make sure that I request an uninstaller, then try that.  If you reinstall to the same place, exactly the same files will be installed again, and this time the uninstaller may work.

i don’t get why, if the bot was created for Genesis, it ONLY takes V4 textures, and not genesis/V5 etc.

I can think of two good reasons, first one is Genesis comes with a V4 UV so everybody has that set, and you need to buy V5 to get the UVs for it, and not every DS4 user has been suckered into buying the over priced low quality garbage DAZ are passing off as Gen 5.

Second is the sheer amount of work involved in redoing the UVs on the skin sections, which would mean you would be paying a lot more for it than you are just to cover the extra work.

Never mind you can count on one hand the number of third party skins made for any of the alternate UVs (with the exception of V5, where you need both hands).  Hard to justify the work to support these additional UVs when nobody is using them anyway…
