Hi.

I notice that the V5 Pro bundle is available at a reduced price again (when purchased with one of the qualifying promotional products)
but here is my dilemma: I already have V5 and several of the items in the bundle. Nevertheless, DAZ in their infinite wisdom have restricted availability of certain geo-grafted parts to the Pro bundle. Even at a reduced price, I feel that is too much to expect people to pay in order to get a single item from the pack. Why not make these items available as separate products?

You could open a support ticket asking about the possibility of “upgrading” your current files to the Pro Bundle, though whether that would be cheaper than the current offer if it was even possible I don’t know. The question about separate availability has been asked before and it seems clear that the answer is no.

Is there an official complaints channel, as a matter of interest? “Seems clear” just doesn’t cut it.

“Seems clear” just mean that this conversation has happened for about a year and a half, and your solution is really seeing if you can upgrade what you have through a support ticket. If they haven’t budged in that long, they’re probably not going to.

Done: Support ticket raised, question asked, dissatisfaction recorded.

i haz a theory.  cool hmm  they may anticipate geo-grafting technology might induce a lot of support tickets, so they want to limit who haz the geo-grafts, ergo, limit the resulting problemos billets.

You would probably have to search the old forum archives but there were several threads spelling out why DAZ chose to make the gens for both the male and the females available only if you buy the Pro Bundle.

You had to buy the Morphs++ package to M4’s toast.

This sounds like an opportunity for a third party vendor.  I wonder why nobody has jumped on it so far.

Try the other Rendo (the one we can’t link to for family reasons).  IIRC, at least one vendor has created that certain part of the anatomy for Genesis.

I think the site meant here is Renderotica, which can be mentioned but not actually linked to.

Another possibility that might be cheaper is the M5/V5 bundle, which also includes the gens.

Yep! I was JUST about to suggest that, myself! smile

The V5/M5 Combo is always the next best option for those who don’t want to go full Pro Bundle.

The site I am no longer able to get on, but no big loss there.

For anyone following this - take a look at Fast Grab quickly ... S5 Pro Bundle is at 70% off. Now that is worthwhile.
