Ok, guys good news and a a couple of booboos…
First the booboos. The dress was made back in 2007, so it is quite old. The char was made for V4 or V4.1, and unlike what I thought, the body was created through dialing, although the morph is quite extreme. So to use it today you do need to inj all the Morphs++ into V4.2 before inj the char or you’ll get nothing. The head, however, is 100% original, and uses scaling, so for using hair you will have to apply a suitable morph… I’ve used A4 on the hair I’ve used to get the desired effect. The other booboo, stupid as it sounds, is that back when Maelwenn sent me the char to work on the dress, she was still working on the textures, and as a consequence I never got them LOL Maybe I was originally waiting for the full char to finish setting things up, but frankly, after 5 years, I just don’t remember.
The good news is that not only I’ve found the original OBJ, but also my original C4D file, which meant that editing it was doable without giving me bald scalp patches I’ve made sure that it was fitting properly (turns out the original had a couple of spots that had pokethrough and it was affecting the simulations) and also created several MAT zones to help create more clothing for the char… The new MatZones allow you to give her short sleeves, no sleeves, deeper no-sleeves, no bottom tentacles, and a shorter skirt. I’ve also triangulated the mesh for a nicer, smoother look on the dynamics.
The results are below. I’ve used Surreality’s Equinox’ skin, as it’s lovely and pale, and Amphitrite Hair. The dress uses Skyewolf’s glitter materials. I’m also attaching a T-pose with the new material zones, it could probably be improved by adding cuts on certain sections but that’s as much as I could do with what I had without getting into the load of extra work that I didn’t want to take on.
I’ll be adding a zero pose necessary for starting the simulations, and packing, and I think that will be it. There’s a tut on my website already on how to use dynamics in Poser which I will include in the zip.
Hope this will finally settle the issue, and give people what they’ve been asking for.
Edited to add: File is now on my website. Enjoy!
