Ok, so now: where is Genesis 2? question

I think we need to give the boys and girls at Daz a few hours to wake up and realise the mistake. Out of pure interest I checked my product history to see if it had been added. Much like Genesis 1 came with Daz Studio, I thought perhaps that they had secretly made it available to download to owners of DS, but no such luck.

No figure, no sale. We’ll see how Daz responds, though given their silence prior to release in the Members section we could be in for a long wait. Daz Studio 5 perhaps…?

Edit: Seems I spoke too soon. In the time it took to post this, they actually added the Genesis 2 figure to the product library. Downloading it now.

Hello Herald,

I checked my downloads/product lib too. No G2 in sight.
Maybe they surprise us with Studio 4.7 too wink

I thought maybe Genesis 2 was part of V6. Below is what you get when you add V6 to a scene.

Ah, you’re right. It appeared on DIM for me too.

Now it appears to be working properly.

I thought it would be neat to render like that..  but alas, no geometry file, so nothing showed up in the render. She was just a phantom of herself.

Go to My Account - Product Library - Filter, then enter the words Genesis 2 and there you should have Genesis 2 Female Starter Essentials ready for download. It only just popped into my account now. Now I really hope Daz would give us some official statements about comparability between Genesis to Genesis 2 content, etc?

I found “Genesis 2 Female Starter Essentials” in my products in a half hour of browsing the library. Is it what everyone call Genesis 2? DAZ separates the genders again, doesn’t it?

sadly Genesis 2 has no real morphing capabilities out of the box. Those have to be purchased, making Gen6 female completely useless

Here’s a quick and dirty side by side, g2 on the left, g1 on the right.

the differences are very subtle but definitely show an improvement in realism.

Still, its minor enough that after buying over 3000 dollars worth of genesis 1 products in the last 3 months, Im just too annoyed to buy a whole new figure that requires all new morphs etc. And no male?

DAZ, Im really unhappy.

Those of us who invested so heavily in genesis 1 deserve better.

And here is a closeup of the Genesis 2 Base Female with default skin.

The surface tab indicates that textures are Bree. The path is some like Runtime/textures/DAZ/Characters/Genesis2/BaseFemale/V5Bree…

So the base female comes with a modified version of the V5 Bree skin as her default skin.
