Do you know what other paid MR skins from here that allow freebies? It’s a pity the ReadMes aren’t linked on the product pages.

As by habit I didn’t buy anything I couldn’t use, “at the time of purchase”, these were clearly okayed on the online readme page for making free skins with:

http://www.daz3d.com/skinsource-v4

http://www.daz3d.com/skinsource-m4

http://www.daz3d.com/alpha-iii-merchant-resource-kit-for-v4

I have noted that the wording used on the product pages is similar to some other items as well.
So there may be some others ... they are on sale right now.

I have also noticed that a few clearly state that they are not for free skins.

It’s a crapshoot, really. I bought the V5 resource when it first came out, and that one definitely cannot be used for freebies. I may go ahead and pull the trigger on the M4 Skinsource since I have a plethora of female resources, but absolutely none for male, and hope it can be used.

Interesting, the two skinsource products clearly state that they are for commercial and personal use only,  which means no freebies. I gather that is what you mean by “at the time of purchase” since clearly that isn’t the case now. I only bring it up as I have purchased quite a few MRs for character creation and have only seen one that allowed for freebies.

Yes. “At the time of purchase” there was another set of online readmes that were pulled, as I recall sometime before the website software was switched. Eventually the store came up with the product readme list [if one can find anything] that exists now however the readme in the “just downloaded DIM folder” wasn’t very helpful. Says to contact Daz3d for any assistance required.

2nd post down confirming that it’s the Wiki readme that clarified the permission for free characters with one of the products.

Also mentions this treasure:

http://www.bluecho4u3d.com/downloads/BE4V4_MR_Prt3.zip

btw - sometimes even with a product that claims no free character sets permitted, if one simply asks for permission sometimes people say okay. I know I’ve got one MR set that I can use for free characters ‘with conditions’ of course.

Since I don’t own the products to look at the readme myself, I’ve asked in my support ticket if those two skinsources are freebie friendly.

Well there was nothing in the DIM folder from the wiki readmes ... hopefully CS answers in good time [while they are on sale still] but if not, they do go on sale throughout the year. I know I kept copies [on another computer] for my purchases at the time however that would not be of any use for new purchases of the products.

edit; I’ve looked through some of the readmes I’ve collected over the years. Didn’t find the readmes for the skin resources that I remember [may have been something read in the forums then] but did find the one, and then the wiki way back link for the other if anybody is truly interested in these things;  click here

Freja’s entire store over at Rendo is on sale. I’ve had her Skinsource-Artist’s tool on my wishlist for a while, and checked the ReadMes for both that and Dusk to Dawn and they both allow freebies. The Skinsource should be a huge help as its 16 1000x1000 seamless skin tiles, along with a Photoshop pattern file.

Thanks for the HU. Always fun combing through sale pages wink

For tiling skin textures [and others] the largest collection available I think is by HoboBo over at sharecg.com.

Thanks. I wasn’t aware Hobo had skin textures since I could never make my way through all of his photos. Finally I see the ‘textures’ filter at the top and voila, there they are. wink
