...I wish they wouldn’t do things like that.
Not everyone has Steph5. I do and but find myself still using the Gen4 version through GenX far more as there are so many additional morphs and custom morph expansions available. S5 has none of the basic proportioning morphs like her Gen4 counterpart does, only three head/body shapes, and no morph expansions other than characters, which for me was a disappointment.
All the other YT5 characters that come with the Pro Bundle use the V4/M4 UV maps (which probably most people already have), not sure why the same wasn’t the case with Hayley
I know what you mean. The only reason I ended up getting Steph 5 was for the UV sets, primarily to use Haley and Hayden but also to ensure compatibility with future products.
There seems to have been a trend of new character, new UV set. With Genesis I feel this is somewhat unnecessary, since there are already such a wide number of UV’s available. It would have made more sense to me if more of the older UV maps were supported rather than new ones. It’s seems clear it’s being done with the intention to force prerequisites for future products to artificially boost sales, and I really hope this plan comes to a close as there shouldn’t be a need for it.
Genesis has the advantage of being compatible with virtually any other Genesis item. The minute you start forcing prerequisite UV maps down our throats, it starts to lose that advantage.
