Wow. Although I’m using 4.5, it was interesting to see the slider called “Weight”  right after Voluptuous. You move that sucker and you have a sumo wrestler.

after a few tests on G2F and also by reading here what’s everyone feels about G2F, i’m totally not convinced by this new figure and wont invest a penny on it before we get some reliable tools to convert old stuff to be wearable by 6th generation, i dont want to re-buy loads of stuff

now i understand why we keep on finding new stuff for 4th generation on the market

Sorry, I may be in the minority here but I’m not impressed. Not at what it is but the constant “new figure upgrades” we don’t need. Didn’t we just get the generation 5’s in the last year or so? Why would I even look at Genesis 2 and the Generation 6 figures when I didnt even get the Gen 5 ones or use Genesis once?

Sorry, but I think I’ll stick to the Gen 3 and 4 figures. I cant afford to keep “upgrading” to a new figure, especially when the Gen 5’s and Genesis have barely been touched by anyone making things for them.

Out of curiosity, how long did the Gen 3’s last before getting replaced?

Not sure where you’re going with that, but there’s a wealth of content available for Genesis currently. That said, I’m not sold on V6 either. There are some significant advancements in the figure, of that there is no doubt at all, but I’m not ready to go back to splitting the genders and having to make twice the number of purchases once again.

As much as I love the many improvements they’ve made to the figure, I’m still baffled by their need to separate the two sexes in this way. I’ve seen nothing in the figure which couldn’t be achieved with a unisex mesh, and I have no doubt that there will be a male morph for her. But losing the wealth of interchangeable morphs that Genesis has makes V6 a less attractive upgrade. And no age morphs either, that one is a critical loss. It’s not a fault of the figure itself, but more strong concerns about her future.

Like I said, had she come before Genesis I’d be singing her praises, but having the power of a fully unisex morphing figure is something which still trumps the competition.

Posted this in the member’s forum, but I’ll say it here, too.  So far my experiments with Genesis -> G2F autofit have all been poo.  It’s no better than Gen4->Genesis is.  Only simple stuff converts adequately.  You’d think with TriAx->TriAx, it could be more intelligent about converting the weight/rigidity/etc maps, but it looks like it does none of that, and instead simply replaces them outright with the maps in the clone projection template.  So buttons, belt buckles, studs, etc all distort and no amount of smoothing is going to fix that.  And shoes are 100% unusable still…

Since G2F base is free, I’d highly recommend people download and install it and try converting some of their own content before investing into V6 or any of the other G2F stuff…

First few tests of transferring Gen1/V5 footwear (mostly stuff from dx30) to G2 are completely unusable.  Lots of crumpling, just like with Gen4->Genesis.  So G2/V6 basically has no shoes right now…

Wow this sh*t again…..

wow SERIOUSLY????? shoes for Genesis 1 don’t autofit properly to Genesis 2????????????????
that’s bad. That’s REALLY bad.

I had no problem with the Cuban shoes…

It’s nice to see that G2F has returned the EyeSurface mat zone (now called EyeReflections).  But this would have been the perfect time to split the left and right eyes into separate mat zones, with the legacy-support surface selection templates selecting both of them for you.  Sadly, they did not do this, so we still have to hack G2F in the PGE to separate the eyes…

Wow, there are actually Gns1 shoes that autofit to Gns2 ? I tried 4 pairs and then gave up.

posted this in the member forum as well.. this is how it looks the first time i tried some clothes on the basic genesis 2 female…


cuffed tail hair - had to be fit manually since it only comes with fits for some of the generation igures (had to fit it manually on the genesis 1 too )


Mean streets for genesis male (pants, shoes and v-neck)


Only used autofit, didn’t even put on textures on anything as I just wanted to check… anyhow. this is what it looekd like for me, so some things certainly autofit well.. not sure about all. And some shoes seem to work quite allright as well smile

I for one will not be buying V6. I’m not bothered about yet another shape for the females and the clothes and hair don’t interest me. Plus I don’t want to have to buy an ‘upgrade’ so I can use the V4 shape again. What is with that? If you’ve already bought the gen4 shapes they should be able to work with the new stuff - or they offer a free update. You shouldn’t have to keep buying a new version every time they make another generation.
I’m not going to bother uploading Genesis 2 either if it means that there are certain autofit issues and pre-DUF skins won’t work - most of the skins I own are Poser format. Also, I suppose that any clothes brought out will now be Genesis 2 compatible instead of Genesis 1. Why can’t they just use the basic genesis format for all clothes and skins for Gen 5 and 6?

i deleted the ones that were in there by accident…I think that should be correct for the Pro bundle?

Sorry, I’m confusing people - there were EXTRA things in there.  I’ll go back and edit my post.  Apologies for the confusion (v/\v).
