I feel like almost everything in the Shop is geared around female characters. I was trying to create a male character to use as a reference for some of my artists (I’m designing a science fiction card game) and it was frustrating trying to figure out what products would work with the Male Genesis figure, or even to find things that were specifically designed for males.

Yep, let’s face it, and say it out loud SEX SELLS. Anyhoot I’ll like to give a big thanks to Daz for creating G2F and also a big thanks to the producers of Dawn as well. Both these releases has helped me save a tonne of money. Now that content creators are concentrating on either GF2 or Dawn, both of which I don’t support, I have saved a tonne of money to spend elsewhere. I’ll only support Genesis Unisex…..to the bitter end!

It’s true that the vast majority of new releases have been female-focused, but that isn’t always the case. Last year there was much more balance, and there probably will be again once M6 is released. Any Genesis hair or clothing will work with male Genesis characters (even female stuff, like this). With AutoFit, you can also use clothing designed for Michael 4…it often works quite well.

Anything in particular you’re looking for and not finding?

Just to step into the wayback machine a bit. V4 eventually added male morphs, but the M4 figure never had female morphs that I know of. The V4 males never looked very male and few PA created characters based on those morphs, but they were there if you wanted to use them.  ...

M4 female http://www.daz3d.com/m4-enhanced-mina-for-m4

I like Bryce, DazStudio, Poser and Vue ... in alphabetical order. And I would probably like Carrara too, if I could find the time to become acquainted with it. Peace?

I have G2F, but I haven’t really used it. I am looking forward to G2M - why? I’ve never been quite happy with the G1 figure… Just a few little things I tend to pick, that’s all.
Maybe with G2M, M6, D6, etc I’ll be able to get closer to some of the figures I’d like to do… maybe. Maybe with M and F a little more specific we’ll get people making some more interesting male clothes?

Clothing, that’s just another minor gripe smile

All good.

Take a good hard look at the majority of the outfits that have been offered for the G2F since it’s release.  Look at the parts of the clothing most of them are missing.  See a pattern?

How many of those types of outfits are you going to buy for the G2M?

I guess about as many as I’ve bought for G2F… wink

There are a bunch of more modest outfits (or at least outfits with fuller coverage) for G2F too though…more skimpy stuff to be sure, but that’s what the earlier Victorias got also.

I still want a true Asian styled androgynous Chibi though. my morphing skills aren’t up to snuff. If someone makes one I’d prefer it for genesis 1 though. I could get a decent androgynous body easy enough, but sculpting the head and eyes properly would kill me. Morphing eyes is a major pain.

Because who wouldn’t want a chibi battle nun with a pet zombie?

We have all kind of HD ultra detailed creatures for “Genesis” 2 Female.
But of course, we need a whole separate figure just for a human male because men and women are soooo different you need specific meshes.
Sure. rolleyes
Genesis proved you didn’t need separate meshes and those HD Creatures morphs keeps proving it too.

From a modeling stand-point G2F is better. You can better account for the female form in clothing than you could modeling around the Genesis base (would you create a woman’s bra using Chuck Norris as a base? probably not).

No but it might be good for a few laughs though…

It worked for Genesis and I see no improvement on “G"F2 clothing (or anything else).

It worked, but it was sure difficult.  Just because something works doesn’t mean it can’t be improved upon.

What about improving autofit so it could transfer custom bones like ghost handles? I’m asking because with split genders such functionality would be even more in demand and yet since DS 4 started I haven’t seen any improvements in autofit area.

I seem to recall a number of improvements in Autofit, most notably preserving morphs.  I haven’t tried G2F myself, but I’ve heard that Autofit has been further improved.
