I have a ton of morphs and poses and clothes and hair and textures for Victoria 4 - that I can’t use on V6. I want to be able to use the stuff I already have, and I want new content for V4 to go with it.
The V6 content that was put on sale today are things I really want - but there’s no way I’m buy it when I have so much invested in V4. It’s a real shame.
If DAZ wants to add thousands of polygons to Victoria’s face, they don’t need to make a whole new figure. They can make a mask of a face that will fit V4 - a mask of a face with the thousands of new polygons. Then the thousands of people who have V4 can simply fit the mask over V4’s face, make V4’s face invisible, and use the new face possibilities. If a new face mask isn’t possible, then just make a new head, so we can make V4’s head invisible and parent the new head to V4’s neck. I know absolutely that that will work because I use third generation heads of both male and female figures on fourth generation figures by making the third generation body invisible and parenting the head to the fourth generation neck - and making the 4th generation head invisible.
Similarly, all the other changes to Victoria could be incorporated into V4.
Any content artists reading this could make a LOT of money by modeling a high-polygon facemask with infinite expression-pose possibilities, and infinite character morph possibilities - a face mask to fit on V4 and V3 and the male figures.
This constant rebuying has to stop. DAZ’s planned obsolescence has to stop. Enough is enough.
