I’ll have that scotch now… since you’re pouring wink
Ahhhh smoooooth! Nope… hold the rocks. I don’t like water in my alcohol.

Good man! Neat is the best way. Speyside or island? I love Highland Park 18-year old.

Okay, back to installs now…it’s the V4 Hair stuff that I am dreading…but if I keep plugging away, bit by bit, then I may yet have some time to do the Carrara render that I “owe” EP.

Alright, I realize now (too late!) that downloading everything was a mistake. rolleyes

I have most stuff installed now—I think. There will require a few manual installs; notably poses that cover both V4 and M4 (i.e. That’s Amore). When you install an item in one runtime, it gets removed from the “Ready to install” list. So that would be another Nice-To-Have Feature—the ability to install to multiple runtime locations.

Cool! Thanks for letting us know about that.

In other news, I am adding the runtimes to my laptop version of Carrara now. After that, I’ll test accessing the runtimes from the UNC share on the big server. Fingers crossed…

I guess I’m whipping this topic pretty hard.

Well, I’ve noticed that the new runtimes on the laptop do not match up with the server. As just one specific example, in my “Animals” runtime, I have MATs from Classic Cats…but I don’t have the actual Millennium Cat model to apply them on. As much as I find DIM to be a step in the right direction, if it doesn’t actually know about every purchase that I’ve made, then its value drops considerably.

I am heartened by what Andy and Mike have mentioned though.

In the mean time, I am going to have to manually install a lot of stuff. blank stare
