There is no problem importing the sets, how ever highly detailed, the problem is with the amount of large size hi-res jpg textures which people like JT use.

I got the whole of Aslan court in in one go, minus the textures, and then added Aslan Court 2 without crashing Bryce. But I used mostly Bryce mats to texture it.

So who are the powers that be at Daz to ask about development of Bryce??? I feel like its the wizard of oz or something like that “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” Do they just need us as a community to voice this more often…..Is there not something we can do about our wants and needs to have a better Bryce???

Not a lot we can do that we are not already doing. At least I got DAZ 3D to sponsor the render challenge, so they are aware that the Bryce Community is still alive and kicking.

  @bullit35744, I suspect, but do not know, that an insanely huge and sustained increase in Bryce product sales would be the most effective way of increasing the odds of additional Bryce development.

  On the topic of getting DS products into Bryce, there are also a very small number products that have been set up for use with Bryce already that should allow you to avoid some of those transfer issues; those products with Bryce companion files (BCF).  I keep forgetting which products have them and which don’t; I should run a search and flag these in my DS content library somehow so I don’t forget to use them.

I agree with you Sean, but at the same time DAZ 3D has also got to realise that many Brycers use a terrific amount of content that is not Bryce specific.

Look at Trish, she has just joined the PC to get some more of this sort of content.

And I would hate to add up the amount of money I have spent here in the last 10 years or more.

That is why I was, for a while, putting Bryce images into all sorts of challenges and contests, making sure that there was obvious Daz store content in the images.  Before they changed the PC render challenge I had Bryce images featured on the PC newsletters 4 times. 

Plus we had a concerted effort to get quite a few Bryce images into the big Stonemason Contest, and both Dave Savage and Jay won prizes.

People need to see what Bryce can do .

Another good reason why we need Galleries on the site.

  Good point.  In fact, I’d like to retract my previous statement, I clearly didn’t think it all the way through.

Unfortunately we are too small a force and not only that but there are certain people who Daz uses for development, that work on contract so it’s also a matter of their availability. It will hopefully happen, eventually. In the mean time the best thing we can do is what many of us have been doing, yourself included, which is to take advantage of all the wonderful new things Bryce and Horo are showing people how to do and thru that attract more interest that translates into new customers.

It’s a vicious circle. Bryce development stalled, people don’t go for (what they wrongly perceive in this case) outdated software, so less users, less interest, less money to develop ... ad infinitum.

LordHardDriven; Thanks for posting the list and answering about powers that be question…...

Horo; I feel like the things you and David make for Bryce and sell at Daz really helps to promote Bryce also!!!

Pam; It is wonderful that they are forking out prize money for our contest and you did that, I think even though we are a small community that if we keep it going maybe things will happen….

I mean really where else can you get a program for 19.95 that does what Bryce can do…...or like most of us got it for free. I own other 3d programs but just use them for Bryce as an end result.
