Okay, it works in my Poser program too. I created an object file for it and I was able to drag it into DAZ studio whole as an object file.

Just a thought - DAZ issued a stealth update to version 1.1. I don’t know what changed from 1.0. I haven’t installed it yet. If you have version 1.0, you could reset it and download again. Maybe your problem has been fixed.

So you all actually paid $99.95 for this steam Aircraft Dragon? I mean that’s what I’m seeing as the price and that’s the price that shows in my cart. Nor do I see anything on the page indicating it’s free or cheaper if you buy another product like Daz did with the Fight Club Boxing shoes. Surely it’s a mistake, far better products have been released for way less.

Apparently it’s supposed to be a Platinum Club freebie, and it’s priced so high so no one else will buy it. I swear there was a thread about that, but I can’t find it now…

Yes it is a PC Freebe. I’m 100% sure the price will be normal after the PC give away ends. That’s the end of July.

The DAZ store has started a new PC Perk for the members because the new store took away some PC features. The Monthly Free item is the new Perk. Untill the item can only be free to PC members and not to other DAZ members you will see HUGE prices on those items. I’m sure a store update will be coded to fix the need for this very soon. tongue wink As in DAZ SOON! LOL!!

I got version 1.1 in my download and it also has the missing sections in DS4. The broke item in Poser issue could be the reason for the updated files as stated before.

Ah okay, that makes sense. I wish Daz would just put, “available to PC members only at this time” rather then some riddiculous price. I would think that would have a better chance of encouraging new membership rather then hoping someone interested also see’s a forum thread explaining things. I mean if I’m a new customer chances are I’m not getting a newsletter that might clue me in, there’s also a good chance I’m not active in the forums yet, so I’d see that price and think “Holy Cow! These people are crazy if they think I’m going to pay $100 for that. This place is too rich for my blood, maybe I should shop elsewhere?”

Which version of DS are those of you with missing tails using? There’s an entry in the changelog for 4.5 about fixing a bug with geometry belonging to the root node, so it’s possible that the current 4.5 beta version has an issue there that will be fixed in the enxt RC (or the release version, whichever comes next).

I am on the last official release of DS4, not the 4.5RC betas.  The entire object loads.  However, only some of the morph controls work.  E.g., the propeller and wheels spin, but the tail/rudder adjustment does nothing.
