I have to wonder why this is called the Platinum Club Sale anymore and not the Genesis/Genesis 2 Sale? All I’m seeing (with a very few exceptions) for figures, cloths and poses are things for Genesis only.
Look at todays (week 3 day 1) items, its all for Genesis with this Josie figure. I feel like I’m shopping at renderosity with the heavy influx of Dawn only stuff. A little variety would be nice guys or at least have poses that are for both Gen 4 and Gen 5.
I guess to be fair, they want to make it for stuff that everyone has. Everyone has a Genesis figure.That means that a lot of the stuff you get will work on both your male and female figures. Props and environments are great, because everyone can use those too. If you didn’t have V4 and the sale was 90% V4 stuff, you’d lose out.
I’d be willing to bet the Generation 4 figures are the ones that everyone has. Genesis, at least the base figure was only included in DAZ Studio 4 and I believe up to recently only useable in DS4. That leaves out everyone who prefers to use Poser.

Look through the thread and see for yourself what came up as PC releases - most of it until now was Props/Buildings and ok, two times shaders for DS (which I guess wouldn’t be your cup of tea either, if you don’t like Genesis you are probably a Poser only user).
There were only a few Genesis/Gen2Fem items.
Lol! Glad you liked the username.
Ok here is the breakdown.
-Week 1 had 35 items. 15 of them are Genesis/Genesis 2.
-Week 2 had 42 items, 16 of them are for Genesis/Genesis 2
-Week 3 so far has 23 items, 19 of them are for Genesis/Genesis 2.
The poses for Ironstar and West Park are a bit disappointing since I was hoping for M4 poses for the Vanguard (kinda left us hanging on those with only the V4 ones) and up until now all the previous West Park poses were for V4/M4.
By the way I have been a DAZ Studio user since DS2 although with DS 4, its likely I’ll start learning Poser 9 that I picked up a earlier this year. I mean seriously, you make a program that isnt backwards compatible with your own products? “Smart” content and I guess you can call them “Dumb” content that requires you to look through 2 (or more) different runtimes to find things. Thats a whole different issue though.
I don’t know how many Poser users have the Genesis based figures but I do see several Poser only items sold here, the recent Toon Snail a perfect example. So why would this PC Sale have a large selection of figures, poses and clothing that requires Genesis? Like I said, add some freaking variety beyond Genesis, Genesis 2, the Gen 5 and Gen 6 line.
